Trump, with 'angel families' behind him, stresses need for hard-line immigration stance

23 June 2018

Earlier this week, after increasing national and global outrage over his placing babies and children in internment camps and cages, Trump paused his policy of separating migrant children from their undocumented parents. "We're going to have a safe country".

However, studies have shown that undocumented immigrants are less likely to commit a crime in the US than native-born citizens, including one published by the libertarian CATO Institute this year. "They don't talk about the death and destruction caused by people that shouldn't be here, people that will continuously get into trouble and do bad things", Trump said. It was widely published, ending up on newspaper front pages.

In a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday, two-thirds opposed Trump's now-discontinued policy of separating kids from their parents when they cross the border; 79 percent supported allowing the dreamers to become citizens, even though Trump revoked the protection against deportation granted to them by President Barack Obama, and two-thirds said the 11 million unauthorized immigrants now in the USA should be given a path to citizenship.

Mike Coffman, a Republican in the House of Representatives, called on Trump on Thursday to fire senior White House adviser Stephen Miller, who has pushed for a hardline approach to immigration.

Mr. Trump said the goal of the event was to remember those who are "victims of illegal immigration".

Days after insisting that Congress act immediately, President Donald Trump is telling Republicans to "stop wasting their time" on immigration until after the November elections.

Trump's tweet claiming "phony stories of sadness and grief" came just hours after Trump said that Republicans should "stop wasting their time on immigration until after we elect more senators and congressmen/women in November". Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem.
