Trump to win the immigration debate?
Trump administration faces backlash on immigrant families separated at the border; radio host Larry O’connor weighs.
President Trump on Saturday doubled down on his harsh rhetoric, to protect MS-13 gang members, while accusing Democrats of “” the members of the violent gang, as they “push for open borders.”
Trump has his remarks in his weekly address, and as house lawmakers negotiate legislation, some forms of migration, Fund border security, would limit, and would brought protected status to grant some illegal immigrants in the country as children.
But while Trump the call for the Democrats has been to come to the negotiating table, he has maintained his fiery rhetoric about MS-13 — started the gang of Central American immigrants in the 1980s and known for his particularly brutal crime, and the motto: “Kill, rape, control.”
Trump caused controversy among some Democrats in may, when he described the MS-13 gang members as “animals.” Trump scolded by top Democrats for his statement.

“MS-13 gang members really are, and you’ve heard me say it, even animals.”, he said on Saturday. “And to protect Nancy Pelosi and Washington Democrats continue to you, and to push to open the borders.”
“You want them taken care of. You want them to be left alone,” he said.
He said that the Democrats have blocked legislation to deport gang members and are for sanctuary cities, the local law enforcement cooperation with Federal immigration authority.
“The Democrats in Congress have said against every measure, which would close these immigration loopholes, and this slaughter will bring an end,” he said.
Trump’s comments come as the administration took a more aggressive approach in the face of criticism that the Ministry of justice has led to the “zero-tolerance” policy on the arrest of every illegal border Crosser, the separation of families on the border.
Trump has tried to blame Democrats for the controversy, said in a tweet on Saturday that the Democrats are forced to fix with the Republicans, “family break-up” at the border.
A draft of the Republican bill in the house presented to lawmakers on Thursday proposed a solution to the situation of children allows to be — the circulation of the 1997 Flores agreement, which prevents illegal immigrant children in detention for long periods of time.kept in custody with their parents
Democrats can fix, forced, family, broke, on the border of the cooperation with the Republicans on new legislation, for a change! This is the reason why we need more Republicans elected in November. Democrats are good at only three things, High taxes, High crime, and disability. Sad!
