Once again President Trump's big mouth has gotten him in trouble, which only validates his warped views of the situation of Immigrants and the displaced refugees.
President trump always has something to say about his proposed wall. His aggression towards building it will be its downfall.
President Donald Trump hardened his position on immigration Wednesday, a day after he appeared to support a wide-reaching deal that could grant millions of undocumented people a pathway to citizenship. During a meeting with congressional leaders on Tuesday, Trump repeatedly said he would “take the heat” for a sweeping immigration deal, which would likely be opposed by much of his far-right-wing anti-immigrant base. President Trump also said he wanted a bill to protect the 800,000 young undocumented people known as DREAMers, whose protections he attempted to rescind late last year when he canceled DACA—the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. But on Wednesday, Trump reversed course, telling reporters he would reject any immigration deal that doesn’t provide funding for a militarized border wall.
As shown in the picture below, ICE agents have been swarming in on immigrants, regardless if any of them are commiting a crime.
Trump’s remarks came just hours after agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement—or ICE—raided nearly 100 7-Eleven stores around the U.S., delivering audit notices and arresting 21 people. Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan said the raids were meant to serve as a warning to employers that ICE would hold businesses accountable if they hire undocumented immigrants.
A solid victory against those who are against the DACA program and migrants as a whole.
In a major blow to President Trump’s anti-immigration agenda, a U.S. judge in San Francisco has temporarily stopped the Trump administration from ending the DACAprogram—that’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The Obama-era program gave nearly 800,000 young undocumented people legal permission to live and work in the United States. President Trump announced he was ending the program late last year. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Alsup ruled the DACA program must remain in place, amid multiple lawsuits over Trump’s decision to rescind the program.
Funnyman Stephen Colbert throw a few comedy punches at Trump and Immigration, thankfully never missing the point.
CBS "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert was having none of President Donald Trump's Tuesday immigration nonsense.
“Today, Donald Trump held a bipartisan meeting on immigration reform focused mainly on reforming our policy of having immigrants,” Colbert observed.
He joked about the forced urgency of Trump's self-imposed crisis.
“If the two sides can’t find a compromise the federal government is going to shut down on January 20, or as historians call it: ‘one year too late,'” Colbert said.
Societal unrest has taken the lives of many social leaders this past year.
At this point, President Trump is grasping at straws, hoping to at the very least get his wall built.
The debate continues as President Trump seeks more funding for a wall that maybe never be built.
In more news on immigration, President Trump is meeting with Republican and Democratic lawmakers at the White House today to debate funding for Trump’s border wall and the future of nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants known as DREAMers. Trump is demanding $33 billion over a decade to fund the expansion of the militarized border wall and to hire 10,000 additional immigration agents. In exchange, he’s proposing Congress authorize protections for the undocumented young people who had been protected under DACA—that’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals—before Trump rescinded the Obama-era policy late last year. Immigrant rights groups and Democratic lawmakers have slammed Trump for trying to use the DREAMers in order to win his far-right, anti-immigrant demands. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who was formerly the secretary of homeland security, has been in charge of reaching out to lawmakers for the talks and will be at today’s meeting. Over the weekend, while speaking at a press conference at Camp David, President Trump vowed there will be no resolution on DACA without billions of dollars in funding for the border wall.
