President Trump tweeted Sunday that people who "invade" the US must get sent back to their home countries immediately, without any court action.
Democrats and other opponents of the administration's policy say that court case is not the root of the problem, noting that separating families was the exception, not the rule, for most of the two decades since the Flores case was resolved. Mr. Will claimed the "most telegenic example" of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration's "zero tolerance" policy regarding illegal immigrants along the US southern border.
Next, Will gave scathing rebukes of White House advisor Stephen Miller and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, for their starring roles in the recent public debates over separating immigrant children from their families at the US border.
The call to abandon due process Sunday in some ways echoed part of his executive order, which seeks to detain immigrant families indefinitely, a stance that courts have said violates the rights of the children.
Ronaldo delivers again as Portugal down Morocco
Despite their battling display, Morocco will rue the unforgivable defending that made all their subsequent good work irrelevant. Ronaldo will look to close the gap further when Portugal face Iran on Monday.
President Donald Trump, who had repeatedly urged Congress to act, did not help Ryan when he suggested in an early-morning tweet that the House was wasting its time by considering either bill.
Since May 2017, the Trump administration has reportedly been considering expanding the policy to allow for the immediate deportation of undocumented immigrants anywhere in the country who can not prove they have lived in the US continuously for more than 90 days. From issue to issue, from immigration to health care to trade and more, Trump's pattern has been to outline a plan with scant concern or preparation for its immediate impact or consequences, and to make changes on the fly with the same lack of planning.
"We're going to have strong, very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together", Trump told reporters in the Oval Office prior to signing the directive.
Sanders differentiated between Trump and the Obama administration on this issue, saying there was "concern" about the treatment of undocumented immigrants under Obama, but that it was not the same as family separation under Trump. "The American people...want to know we are on their side and not on the side of foreigners to come in and take the money that they earned", Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R., Calif.) said in an interview.
President Trump has been calling for a merit-based immigration system, a move that would benefit the Indian professionals. Most children come without parents. While 58% of all adults said they disapproved of Mr. Trump's handling of the policy, 81% of Republicans said they approved. He has issued a steady drumbeat of criticism of the immigration system and Democrats in Congress, while using increasingly harsh terms such as "invasion" and "infestation" to describe illegal immigration.
