In recent days, President Trump and his administration have been blamed for thousands of immigrant families being separated at the border. Trump has continuously expressed the need for Democrats’ participation in changing immigration laws to prevent events like this from happening, but Republicans and Democrats have failed to reach an agreement.
The controversy has escalated into a nationwide battle between the two political parties with protests circulating the nation. Families being separated is, of course, devastating but preventing murderous crimes in the U.S. so more families aren’t at risk is also important.
In a series of Tweets on Monday morning, President Donald Trump reiterated the necessity for higher border security in order to reduce crime. The President insisted that America cannot end up like other countries who freely allow illegal immigrants — increasing crime rates.
“Why don’t the Democrats give us the votes to fix the world’s worst immigration laws?
Trump asked. “Where is the outcry for the killings and crime being caused by gangs and thugs, including MS-13, coming into our country illegally?”
“The people of Germany are turning against their leadership as migration is rocking the already tenuous Berlin coalition. Crime in Germany is way up,” he added. “Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture! We don’t want what is happening with immigration in Europe to happen with us!”
Additionally, President Trump pleaded for Democrats to do their part in changing immigration laws. In relation to the recent controversy regarding immigrant children being separated from their families, Trump says the kids are “being used” by criminals to enter the U.S. illegally.
“Children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country...It is the Democrats fault for being weak and ineffective with [Border] Security and Crime,” Trump stated. “Tell them to start thinking about the people devastated by Crime coming from illegal immigration. Change the laws!”
First Lady Melania also weighed in on this massive controversy regarding children and border security. Read the details here!
