Trump says Mexico not stopping migrant flow

Trump says Mexico not stopping migrant flow

His tweet follows his assertion on Sunday that "ridiculous liberal" Democrats were impeding Border Patrol agents' ability to "do their job". "It's just the reality that there are so many people claiming and being entitled to hearings that we don't have the ability to provide those hearings, and they are being released into the community, and they're not coming back for their hearings", Sessions said. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW.

Unfortunately for these so-called 'DREAMers, ' the Democratic Party understands that their plight is more useful as an electioneering tool.

The majority of Americans want to keep these young immigrants in the United States.

Democrats blamed Trump for the tenuous status of a program that shielded hundreds of thousands of immigrants, often called "Dreamers", from deportation and gave them work permits.

Trump in the past has promised to show "great heart" in dealing with DACA.

The U-T featured an article regarding "Trump tweets no deal on DACA debate" (April 2): The writer stated "Trump thrust the future of millions of immigrants who were brought illegally to the United States as children into peril ..." Mexico strictly enforces its own immigration laws and does not tolerate illegal immigrants, except when those immigrants are en route to America.

Trump's use of the term "caravans" - also made in a sequence of tweets on Easter Sunday - was a reference to a large group of people who are heading through Mexico, hoping to reach the USA border.

In another Twitter post, Trump wrote, "Congress must immediately pass Border Legislation, use Nuclear Option if necessary, to stop the massive inflow of Drugs and People".

Trump wrote: "Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws".

The president is using a million people in this country as pawns in some chess game he's playing - with the lives of real people.He seems to think he is in charge of the Congress.

The lack of funding for the border wall - a major Trump campaign promise - is likely to bite Republicans in their collective rear ends, come the midterms. Trump is looking for the Senate to the change its rules so that bills can be passed with a simple 51-vote majority. They began as short processions of migrants, some dressed in biblical garb and carrying crosses, as an Easter-season protest against the kidnappings, extortion, beatings and killings suffered by many Central American migrants as they cross Mexico.

Over the weekend, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to say the DACA program is dead. He went on to demand that the border wall be constructed.

One of Trump's signature campaign promises was to build a wall along the southern US border and insisted that Mexico would pay for it. Mexico has refused to do. He had, from the outset, declared his readiness to scrap the Obama-era Daca programme. The former president placed these people in limbo the moment he created a program he had no legal authority to create. John Kasich, the Republican governor of OH who is seen as a possible primary challenger to Trump in 2020, tweeted: "A true leader preserves & offers hope, doesn't take hope from innocent children who call America home".

Trump's tweets come amid tense negotiations over NAFTA between his administration and that of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. For the past five years, the organization has led a procession of people across borders and up through Mexico towards the United States. Trump has run out of patience on immigration and he feels he is racing against time to fix a broken system.
