Trump to Congress: Fix Our Immigration Laws Now

Democratic congresswoman ‘I was proud to be arrested’ with immigration protesters

Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chair Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham, D-N.M., center, holds a Democratic lawmakers shout in protest as President Donald Trump meets at the Capitol Tuesday, June 19, 2018, with House Republicans to discuss a GOP immigration bill.

He concluded in a third tweet: "Congress - FIX OUR INSANE IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW!"

"The president called for laws that would tell immigrants entering the USA illegally to get "'OUT, ' and they must leave, just as they would if they were standing on your front lawn".

Trump said Congress needs to '[t] ell the people "OUT", and they must leave, just as they would if they were standing on your front lawn.

Attending the rally were many concerned citizens, as well as members of local political advocacy groups and labor unions such as the International Workers of the World (IWW).

For weeks we have seen the irreparable and inhumane harm that Trump officials inflicted by implementing the transparently anti-family values policy of separating children (and even babies) from their undocumented migrating parents at the USA southern border.

For years, USA lawmakers have been stymied in trying to overhaul the country's immigration laws, most recently late last month when the House twice defeated proposals that Trump said he backed.

"I never pushed the Republicans in the House to vote for the Immigration Bill", he tweeted, "because it could never have gotten enough Democrats" to pass the Senate.

Of the 4,602 calls received between April 26 and September 30 a year ago, more than half - 2,515 calls - were classified as "unrelated" or "commentary", the report said. But unlike the administration, they believe the correct response to the problem is to hire more judges to adjudicate their claims.

It was precisely this issue - separating illegal immigrant families - that caused a restaurant's management to ask White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave the restaurant where she and her family were having dinner.

Legal experts were quick to note that this would be unconstitutional. Otherwise, the administration says they will have to separate them from their children after 20 days because the law does not now allow them to indefinitely detain minors.

That policy sparked backlash from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle as more than 2,000 children were separated from their parents by USA authorities at the border, including separating some children from parents that were seeking asylum. In theory, it serves a single objective: If you or a loved one have been affected by a crime committed by someone who was in the USA illegally, you can call the hotline for an update on their immigration status.
