Sanders: Trump's 'animals' comment referred to MS-13

Friday, 18 May, 2018

Trump did not specify Wednesday - when he said that "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" - that he was speaking specifically about violent gang members.

"Mister president, sir", asked a reporter, "could you clarify the context of your use of the word "animal" yesterday in referring to some people..." These aren't people. These are animals.

At the time, Trump said, "These aren't people". He then turned to his trembling backup man, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has announced the Department of Justice will be adding immigration judges and prosecuting twice as many immigration cases this year.

Since 2014, when Democratic President Barack Obama was in the White House, Mexico has been more aggressive with law enforcement on its southern border, detaining and deporting tens of thousands of immigrants, many of whom hail from the poor, violent Central American nations of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

"You know I'm referring to the MS-13 gangs that are coming in. He talks about MS-13", Jawetz said. Trump urged to not stop work permits to H-1B holders' spouses A bipartisan group of 130 United States lawmakers led by influential Indian-American Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal has urged the Trump administration to continue granting work authorisation to certain dependent spouses of non-immigrant workers holding H-1B visas, the most sought-after among Indian IT professionals. Flying in a dozen Republican politicians to flatter him and praise his reckless policies changes nothing.

But the Trump administration has sued to reverse it, calling the policies unconstitutional and risky.

The bill took effect January 1. Jerry Brown on Thursday signed a bill placing strict limits on the disclosure of a person's immigration status in open court. He met with officials from Immigration and Customs Enforcement as well as Customs and Border Patrol.

In Los Alamitos, a very small municipality in Orange County, council members enacted an ordinance that would exempt the city from participating in the sanctuary state laws.

Hanford, California also voted to join the federal lawsuit against the Sanctuary State law. "We need strong immigration laws, we have the weakest immigration laws in the entire world". The release date information applies to all inmates, not just those who are suspected of being in the country illegally. Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, said ICE agents had been wrongly restrained under Obama. And Trump has held numerous events in recent months during which he's drawn attention to California's policies.
