Donald Trump and His New Crusade against Immigrants
06 April 2018, 04:01 | Floyd Cook
President Trump arrives at Palm Beach International Airport in Florida for Easter weekend
"They want in on the act!" apparently reacting to a report by Fox News, his political guru, about a caravan of Central Americans fleeing poverty and violence that is making its way through Mexico hoping to reach the USA border and apply for refugee status.
"Congress must immediately pass Border Legislation, use Nuclear Option if necessary, to stop the massive inflow of Drugs and People ..."
"Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the US", he wrote. Cash cow NAFTA is in play, as is a foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen. In another, he wrote in all caps, "ACT CONGRESS!" Trumptweeted on Sunday.
"The Caravan (a term used by Trump to refer to illegal immigrants) which is over 1000 people coming from Honduras walk right through the border", Trump added.
Trump has railed in recent days against "weak" immigration laws in the USA - declaring protections for young immigrants "dead", accusing Democrats of allowing "open borders, drugs and crime", and warning Mexico to halt the passage of "caravans" of immigrants. Another loophole is a 1997 court decision that requires undocumented immigrant children to be released to their parents. Officials complain that many children never show up at their hearings. Democrats offered last month to provide $25 billion for the border wall that Trump advocates, in exchange for such an extension, but White House officials rejected the deal, demanding additional measures to curb legal and illegal immigration.
Last September, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the end of the DACA program, throwing the issue to lawmakers.
He also called for Republicans to "go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW", renewing his call for the party's Senate leaders to abolish a 60-vote threshhold required to clear procedural hurdles in the chamber and instead allow bills to advance with a simple majority. "They had this great opportunity, the Democrats have really let them down.it's a shame", said the president Monday in an answer to reporters who shouted questions at him.
Democrats have blamedTrump for the tenuous status of the DACA program that shielded hundreds of thousands of young immigrants, often called "Dreamers", from deportation and gave them work permits.
The proposal from the White House failed to get even 40 votes in the 100-member Senate.
Central American migrants arrive in Ixtepec, Mexico, before continuing their journey to the United States despite President Donald Trump's vow to stamp out illegal immigration.
"He ended DACA a year ago". They began as short processions of migrants, some dressed in biblical garb and carrying crosses, as an Easter-season protest against attacks against Central Americans as they cross Mexico.
The Fox headline was "Caravan of illegal immigrants headed to U.S".
"But on Sunday, he indicated that the time had passed, writing on Twitter: "'Caravans' coming.
