Trump: "Extremist, Open-Border Democrats" Allowed This To Happen, It's A "Whole Big Con Job"

|

President Trump said the Democratic party has shifted its policy on immigration at a cabinet meeting on Thursday. Trump recalled now-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) once telling him "we must have borders" and former Secretary of State and Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) that "we must get them [illegal immigrants] out of our country."

"My administration is also acting swiftly to address the illegal immigration crisis on the southern border. Loopholes in our immigration laws, all supported by extremist open-border Democrats -- and that's what they are. They're extremist, open-border Democrats," Trump said.

"Now, all of a sudden, they're big open-border people. It's a whole big con job," he said.





"They're the worst immigration laws in the history of the world," Trump also said. "The whole world is laughing at the United States, and they have been for years."

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: My administration is also acting swiftly to address the illegal immigration crisis on the southern border. Loopholes in our immigration laws, all supported by extremist open-border Democrats -- and that's what they are. They're extremist, open-border Democrats.

If you look at Nancy Pelosi, you look at Chuck Schumer, you'll see tapes where they wanted to have borders, they needed to have borders for security just a short while ago. A number of years ago, I see Chuck Schumer --"We must have borders." Hillary Clinton -- "We must have borders. If people penetrate our borders, we must get them out of our country."

Now, all of a sudden, they're big open-border people. It's a whole big con job.

In the meantime, people are suffering because of the Democrats.

So we've created -- and they've created and they've let it happen -- a massive child smuggling industry. It's exactly what it's become. Traffickers -- you think about this -- human traffickers are making a fortune. It's a disgrace.

These loopholes force the release of alien families and minors into the country, where they illegally cross the border. Since 2014 alone, nearly 200,000 unaccompanied alien minors have been released into the United States as a result of Democrat-backed loopholes, including catch-and-release, which is one of the worst.

You catch them, and then you release them. Might as well save your time, don't bother catching them. And this is what we're stuck with. They're the worst immigration laws in the history of the world. The whole world is laughing at the United States, and they have been for years.

These alien minors were separated and sent all the way up here alone, but they really came up with coyotes. You know what a coyote is? Not good -- these are not good people. They were sent up here with human traffickers because the Democrat-supported policies have allowed this to happen.

Democrats also refuse to fund the personnel, the bed space, the resources that we need to house the minors. Now, they want us to take care of the minors, and that's fine. But they don't want to give us the money to take care of them because, the worse everything looks, they think the better they're going to do with respect to the blue wave, which is turning out, frankly, to be a red wave, if you look at the polls. I think we're going to have a red wave, not a blue wave.
