Donald Trump tells Republicans to 'stop wasting time' on immigration

Donald Trump tells Republicans to 'stop wasting time' on immigration

"It's a horrifically chilling signal", said another retiring Republican, Rep. Mark Sanford of SC, who recently lost his primary election after frequently criticizing Trump.

"Your loss will not have been in vain", Trump said. "We're going to have a safe country".

Following Trump's remarks, members of the so-called "angel families" shared stories about the deaths of their relatives. The core economic impact of both bills is largely ignored by media outlets.

The Times report references a study from the Cato Institute, a libertarian organization.

Trump often invited them to appear on stage at rallies or met with their families behind-the-scenes, attending the group's annual luncheon in Houston in September 2016 as he touted key campaign promises to build a wall and deport people who are in the USA illegally.

As a result, the officials from Customs and Border Protection told White House and Justice Department officials that they have had to issue fewer prosecution referrals of adults with children despite the president's zero-tolerance policy.

Trump's new message follows months of gridlock in Congress on immigration reform and his repeatedly blaming Democrats for the mess.

It appears Trump was referring to a viral photo of a crying Honduran toddler pictured near the U.S. -Mexico border while her mother was searched and detained. It was widely published, ending up on newspaper front pages.

He explained the true nature of the journey of minors from Guatemala, Honduras and other Central American nations, explaining that border agents go into the field with toys, clothes and food - purchased with their own money - to try to help the children they find.

President Donald Trump has fully embraced a far-right conspiracy theory that the images and audio of devastated children distraught after being ripped from their parents arms are fake. She was not separated from her mom. He focused on the fact that young migrants separated from parents are likely to be reunited, unlike the victims of murders. "Dems should join POTUS [the president] and fix our broken immigration system", Sander wrote on Twitter.

The U.S. Capitol building. She said that she cried when the two were reunited and that she is never going to be away from him again.

All 435 seats in the House and a third of the 100-member Senate will be contested in the November election.

In the meantime, federal authorities appear to be easing up on the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy of prosecuting all adults caught illegally entering the USA - though the Justice Department flatly denied there has been any change.

The moderates agreed to hold off on a discharge petition that would have forced four immigration votes - two on bills supported more by Democrats and than Republicans - to negotiate a compromise with their GOP colleagues.

Will went on to warn that with no opposition from a Republican-led Congress, a "President Trump" would be worse than having Hillary Clinton in the White House while the GOP held Congressional control.

Which is to say: The president has (apparently) decided that he would like to continue torturing small migrant children - and holding Dreamers hostage - until voters deliver him a nativist Senate, or Democrats agree to pay his ransom, and vote to fund his wall and slash legal immigration.

US President Donald Trump has told his fellow Republicans in Congress to "stop wasting their time" on immigration legislation until after the November elections. In a series of tweets, Trump said, "Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solve this decades-old problem".

One public law office in Texas has said state prosecutors would be dismissing cases in which parents were charged with illegally entering the country and separated from their children, while in the border city of McAllen, 17 immigrants have been unexpectedly let off without any charges.

"You just fear that tweet in the morning", said Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., a supporter of efforts to help Dreamers.
