Trump politicizes everything and doesn’t care about laws – he just wants to punish people. He wants to send detainees to areas (sanctuary cities) held by Democrats (mayors or Congress) who oppose his terrible immigration ideas. Even his own employees raised legal objections but Trump still wants to do it. Sad!
This follows the reduction of tax deductions for SALT which penalized blue states, his threats to withhold money aimed for California and unwillingness to support the Gateway tunnel that would help New York and New Jersey. He has no interest in being president for everyone – he only cares about his base.
Trump has lied before when he blames Obama for his own family separation policy.
Think about these children who were separated from their parents by Trump’s policies. They will grow up to hate the United States. I think it’s fair to assume that some of them will become terrorists who try to harm the US and its residents.
The great majority of people coming from Central America are not terrorists now but some will be eventually thanks to Trump’s cruel policies.
Trump isn’t opposed to just illegal immigration. He’s opposed to all immigration (except from Norway of course) and people from other countries.
Since there’s no national emergency at border, Trump has to lie to make it seem like one. He gave his opponents plenty of ammunition by basically admitting this was a political move.
Trump used the families who have lost family members to murders by illegal immigrants. I am sorry for their losses but notice that Trump never does this for the victims of gun violence. That’s because the NRA spent $30 million to get him elected.
