Trump renews call for Congress to pass border legislation

  • Donald Trump's tweets come amid tense negotiations over NAFTA between his administration and that of Mexican President

Trump suggested in another tweet that Republicans override Democratic opposition in Congress and push through tougher immigration laws, declaring, "NO MORE DACA DEAL". Trump blamed that inability to work on "ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release". "Act now Congress, our country is being stolen!"

Trump began tweeting over the weekend on immigration from Florida, threatening to pull out of a free trade agreement with Mexico unless it does more to stop people from crossing into the U.S. He claimed they're coming to take advantage of protections granted certain immigrants. "They must stop them at their Northern Border, which they can do because their border laws work, not allow them to pass through into our country, which has no effective border laws".

He said that the US has "no effective border laws" and called on Congress to "immediately pass Border Legislation" again suggesting lawmakers invoke the "nuclear option" to abolish the filibuster.

Trump, who has taken a hard line on legal and illegal immigration as president, said in September he was terminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but gave the Republican-controlled Congress until March 6 to replace it. Congress failed to meet that deadline, but courts have ruled the program can remain in place for now.

In a series of tweets, the president said he would not make a deal for Dreamers, claiming that undocumented immigrants are pouring into the US because they want in on the act.

But Galaxy fought back in the second half with goals by Sebastian Lletget and Chris Pontius before Ibrahimovic stole the show. However Ibrahimovic had other ideas soon after coming on as a substitute with just under 20 minutes remaining.

Trump promised during the 2016 presidential campaign to build a Southern border wall to stop illegal immigration and drugs from Mexico, but Congress has frustrated him by not moving as quickly as he wants to provide money for construction. In February, Democrats overwhelmingly voted to fund Trump's border wall in exchange for providing a path to citizenship for Dreamers.

It was one takeaway from a long holiday break, during which Trump surrounded himself with the type of unwavering allies he's struggled to find in Washington, people familiar with their conversations said. But the caravan has nothing to do with DACA - the roughly 1,200 people marching mostly from Honduras are seeking political asylum.

By traveling together, the immigrants hope to protect themselves from the crime and extortion that makes the route through Mexico toward the US border unsafe.

"I asked some of the migrants on the caravan what they thought about Trump saying they were going to the USA for DACA. With all of the money they make from the US, hopefully they will stop people from coming through their country and into ours, at least until Congress changes our immigration laws!"

He declared on Easter Sunday there would be "NO MORE DACA DEAL" to resolve the problem while saying Mexico is doing little, if nothing to prevent immigrants from coming to the US illegally.

The Sarmat also carries a bigger number of nuclear warheads and they can be released one-by-one or in multiples, as a shotgun effect.

Under current immigration laws, these migrants can cross the border illegally, get detained, claim asylum, and be released into the United States with a pending court date.

The president's position on DACA has frequently shifted.

Conservative reaction to the tweets was relatively muted, and no Republican member of Congress had a comment or statement Sunday afternoon.

A few hours later in the morning, the president pivoted to the media, Amazon and the U.S. Postal Service, and the Justice Department in a series of tweets. "Sinclair is far superior to CNN and even more Fake NBC, which is a total joke".

Trump sent his tweets on the fourth and final day of his vacation in Palm Beach, where he has been staying at his private Mar-a-Lago resort with a small coterie of aides. "Upholding human dignity and rights is not at odds with the rule of law". Their decision to undertake such a perilous and uncertain journey appears to prove that Trump - if, indeed, he said what was reported - had a pretty good point. But much of that money can only be used to fix existing segments, not build new sections.
