Trump Vows ‘Harsh Measures’ If Dems Don’t Close ‘Loopholes’

President Donald Trump on Tuesday threatened to take “harsh measures” if congressional Democrats do not take action against immigration loopholes.

Trump tweeted Tuesday morning:

“Democrats in Congress must vote to close the terrible loopholes at the Southern Border. If not, harsh measures will have to be taken!”

The White House has requested billions in emergency funds from Congress to stop migrants from entering the country at the U.S.-Mexico border. However, Democrats in control of the House are reluctant to agree.

“So you create chaos, and then ask for more money?” Rep. Katherine Clark, D-Mass., the vice chair of the House Democratic Caucus, told Politico, referring to the White House.

“Not that we’re trying to validate or not validate [Trump’s claims], there are a lot of people there at the border,” said Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, whose district lies on the border with Mexico. “I don’t call it a security crisis, I call it a humanitarian crisis. So, the question is how do we get to address that?”

Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway told “Fox & Friends” that same morning that Republican legislators will meet with Trump at the White House on Tuesday to discuss his immigration plans. In her remarks, Conway also criticized Democrats in Congress.

“They have to stop pretending they want to reform the immigration laws,” she said. “If they’re serious about immigration reform they should come to the table and fix something.”

  1. Humanitarian crisis? Send every dim wit to that border and to the border towns being inundated. None of them have gotten off their dead butts to even go see it. And stop sending money to the countries where all of these invaders are coming from. Soros and the activists he is employing in those countries are responsible as well as their own governments. We should not inherit their problems, criminal, etc..

    And until the dims see it in their faces and up close they will resist so do send these illegal aliens directly to their towns and let them deal with them until the courts kick em out for lying to get in for the free stuff. Since the dim wits want to call it a humanitarian problem let them deal with them not the rest of us who know this is a mess cooked up by their biggest donor with intent. We are NOT sheeple like their lemming followers!

    With a little kick in their own home towns and their supporters dealing directly with the poor people of those countries they want to help and I am joking when I say poor people as they are demanding asylum without any legal cause just greed and the desire for the US to take care of them like the welfare for life crowd we actually have here.

    Make the dim wits take care of these sponges in person and until they are deported for lying.

  2. This has been going on for way to long at least president Trump is trying to do something about it not like his predecessors who just passed the buck down the road if it was me and I caught them I would put them on a bus and send them back to where they came from. And I don’t agree with to release these illegal aliens into our country because they won’t show up for their deportation hearing when they are supposed to I say round them up and ship them out of the country
