President Trump Will Shut Down Government Over Illegal Immigration
President Donald Trump said Sunday he would allow the federal government to shut down if Democrats refuse to back major changes to immigration laws his administration wants.
“I would be willing to ‘shut down’ government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!” President Trump Tweeted.
President Trump also Tweeted that there are “consequences when people cross our Border illegally” and claimed that many who do so are “using children for their own sinister purposes.”
Sunday’s Tweets came several days after the government said more than 1,800 children separated at the US-Mexico border have been reunited with parents and sponsors after a federal judge ordered the reunions. Hundreds of children remain separated.
Following a day of silence on Twitter, President Trump says: “Please understand, there are consequences when people cross our Border illegally, whether they have children or not and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes.”
He also says Congress must fix “the DUMBEST & WORST immigration laws anywhere in the world!” and urges voters to “Vote ‘R'” in November.
Build the Wall Mr. President!
