U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he was referring to criminal gangs when he called some illegal immigrants "animals", a term the Mexican government labeled as unacceptable and which drew rebukes on social media.

Fox took issue with Trump's remarks during an immigration roundtable, where the President blamed Democrats for immigration laws that he said meant "we have to break up families".

"Each of you has bravely resisted California's deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws", Trump told the group gathered in Washington, D.C.

"There is great concern with who's coming into this country, and this state is really becoming the homeless capital of the world, it's becoming the MS-13 capital of the world, if you will", Reagan said. "These aren't people, these are animals, and we're taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that's never happened before.' In this regard, Videgaray commented that these sayings are 'absolutely unacceptable".

Mr Vella said the commission would also provide the countries with "practical help" on how to promote cleaner air in their cities. The nations have two months to reply to prevent action from being escalated.

"Comparing any person to an animal, regardless of criminal record or immigration status... is an invitation to violate human rights, to hate, to xenophobic rhetoric, and that is something that can not be accepted", he told Mexican TV network Televisa.

Trump says he was clearly referring "to the MS-13 gangs that are coming in", and says "these are animals coming onto our country". They come in again, we're getting them out.

Mrs. Sanders pointed out to Mr. Portnoy that MS-13 "operates by the motto of rape, control and kill".

Trump has repeatedly referred to members of the violent street gang as "animals" in speeches, rallies and at White House events.

"So I'm actually surprised you're asking this question because most people got it right", Trump trolled, before doubling down. This was fueled in part by some media outlets misreporting Trump's statement as applying to all illegal immigrants and not just the notorious Central American gang.

They were criticising legislation Californian Governor Jerry Brown signed into law a year ago that bars police from asking people about their immigration status or helping federal agents with immigration enforcement. He has also labeled larger groups of immigrants who come to the US illegally as criminals. "Mexico talks but they do nothing for us, especially at the border".

MS-13 has been a particular focus of the Trump administration as it pushes back against illegal immigration into the United States. We're not looking to keep them out. The president and his administration have taken steps to remove protections that allow more than 1 million people to stay in the USA ― which could expose more immigrants to risk of deportation. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. According to the White House, more than a thousand people a day and more than 300,000 a year violate "our sovereignty" by illegally crossing the border.
