Trump Continues Playing Up Issue of Illegal Immigration

Share

In the clip, Mr. Obama warns about the threat of illegal immigration to the rule of law and its unfairness to legal immigrants - themes on which Mr. Trump harps, but which many of today's Democrats dismiss as a racist dog-whistle.

On the other side of the Hill, Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Trump's immigration plan was a "campaign to Make America White Again" and more recently said building the wall was a "manhood" issue for Trump.

There was "no proof of anything", Trump said when pressed over his statements that people from the Middle East are among those traveling in the migrant caravan before adding that "there very well could be".

Turkish president: Jamal Khashoggi’s murder was ‘ferocious,’ ‘planned’
Prior to Jubeir's interview, a senior Saudi official laid out a version that itself contradicted earlier explanations. But he said Turkey would not complete its investigation into Khashoggi's death until all questions were answered.

Trump was referencing a video that captured a speech Obama made on the Senate floor in 2006, two years before he became president. Nobody knows about it.

"Real reform means strong border security", Obama said during his State of the Union address in 2013, and "passing a background check, paying taxes and a meaningful penalty, learning English, and going to the back of the line behind the folks trying to come here legally". This distinction is largely due to a decline in people crossing the border without papers from 2016 to 2017.

The Trump-led crackdown on illegal immigrants crossing the United States border has drawn much criticism from the American left.

His friend Turan Kislakci told CBS News they need it to hold a proper funeral, but even more importantly, to get to the truth. Now, what appears to be surveillance video, broadcast by CNN , casts doubt on the Saudis' story.

This was a misleading comparison: although both of those former administrations did have their own version of a "zero tolerance" policy, the Trump administration was the only one to have a policy set in place to separate parents from children.

"The mainstream media is demonizing [President Trump] for talking tough on the caravan", McDaniel tweeted, "but where was their criticism of Barack Obama when he said this?"

"All Americans, not only in the States most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country". It's not clear how, exactly, he wants to cut off those countries, or what payments he was referencing specifically.
