Type: Anti-Liberal AttacksSep 15 2018 Severity: Targeted: Republicans in CongressAbout: Mexico & Immigration
In a tweet, President Trump called out congressional Republicans on immigration reform. He also brought up one of his signature campaign promises of building a wall along the US/Mexico border. He bashed the Democrat's immigration proposals, which he related to "open borders" while accusing Republicans of letting them accomplish them. Trump made the claim that with "open borders we have nothing but crime!" Trumps tweet came after months of gridlock in congress by both Reps and Dems. Both parties during that time, were unable to pass a bill that would satisfy the President's demands for a border wall, while still being able to provide legal protections for immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children.
