infest our country

US President Donald Trump said today immigrants crossing the border illegally will “infest” America without strong laws, as the outcry over a policy of separating families at the border continues to build.

He restated his support for his administration’s policy of separating migrant families at the U.S. border, calling Democrats “the problem.”

“Democrats are the problem. They don’t care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country, like MS-13. They can’t win on their terrible policies, so they view them as potential voters!”

Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced  the “zero tolerance” policy of dealing with illegal border crossings, where all adults are prosecuted – leaving any children to be housed in detention centers while cases are processed.

At a small event in Washington, the POTUS said the separation policy is “a result of Democrat supported loopholes in our federal laws” that he said could be easily changed.

Yet, this policy is not codified in US immigration law, particularly that relating to seeking asylum.

From 5 May to 9 June, according to Department of Homeland Security figures, more than 2,300 children were separated from their parents . With potentially hundreds more separated thanks to a policy that started in mid-April.

In a series of tweets Tuesday morning, Trump said:

“#CHANGETHELAWS Now is the best opportunity ever for Congress to change the ridiculous and obsolete laws on immigration. Get it done, always keeping in mind that we must have strong border security.

Media figures, authors, comedians and Democratic lawmakers criticized Trump’s language on Tuesday. In their opinion the comparison of migrant children with gang members and use the word “infest” was not appropriate.

President Trump is scheduled to appear at a “MAGA” rally in Duluth, Minnesota, on Wednesday evening.
