Trump claims to support law and order but doesn’t want to follow the laws when it comes to immigration. Hypocrite. He’s playing to the bigoted part of his base.
We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country. When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order. Most children come without parents…

In a pair of tweets sent during his drive (to golf course?), Trump:
-described immigrants as invaders
-suggested stripping them of their legal rights
-said laws were a mockery and must be changed so undocumented immigrants could be deported immediately with no right to a trial

Trump consistently behaves and speaks as though he longs to be a despot, unconstrained by democratic checks, due process, rule of law, or the press. This is a demonstrable fact. Republicans in Congress are complicit in his attacks on democratic institutions and should be ashamed. https://t.co/M6GDCJiIdL

Trump claims immigration laws are 'a mockery,' seeks to deprive migrants of due process by deporting them without trial https://t.co/cLvcyvnljV

Why is @realDonaldTrump just focusing on those who illegally crossed the southern boarder-Brown people and not focusing on the millions who of other races overstay their visas? That is part of illegal immigration!!!!

It is NOT an invasion.
An INVASION is what RUSSIA did via a campaign of CYBERWARFARE in 2016.
You FACILITATED that foreign invasion by repeatedly LYING about it in public statements and PERSECUTING those investigating it.
You now ENCOURAGE a REPEAT INVASION with your inaction. https://t.co/IN8g4TVAiJ

Dear @realDonaldTrump: I will support merit based immigration based on the same standards that allowed your grandfather, who started off poor & as a barber, to immigrate to America as an unaccompanied minor.#SundayMorning Thoughts https://t.co/wthRMAUKRv

If this had been our standard throughout history, America as we know it wouldn’t exist. https://t.co/Dx98sAhgNC

One consistent theme of @realDonaldTrump’s immigration rhetoric is the belief that there should be little or no due process for illegal immigrants. His executive order seeks to detain families indefinitely. And here, he calls for no court cases at all before deportation. https://t.co/OtTGhRJOSh
