Trump Calls Europe 'Total Mess' for Its Failure to Curb Illegal Immigration

Though Obama used his speech to say Republicans are rolling back the progress his administration made, the GOP on Monday responded with an identical criticism of Obama and Democrats. "My children are on my insurance for now, what happens in a few years?" The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants.

"I can't just turn a blind eye to what's happening all around me".

- Former President Barack Obama delivered a biting critique of Republicans in Washington and President Donald Trump without mentioning his successor by name.

Former President Barack Obama once again disputed Republicans' attempts to take credit for the United States economy's recent strength.

Trump called the United States a "great Sovereign Nation", saying that the country would never simply allow people to enter illegally.

But Trump also could have shared, Fox observed, Obama's view that illegals should go to the "back of the line". Instead of addressing the challenges that exist, they exploit some of the history that we have in this country, of racial and ethnic and religious divisions, Obama said at a well-attended Democratic campaign rally in Nevada.


One of the more recent and concrete plans that Trump offered up as a solution to the caravan is to cut off the three Central American countries from which the migrants originate from: Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala.

But years ago, he wasn't such a friend of border jumpers himself: "First, illegal immigration is wrong. and a primary goal of comprehensive immigration reform must be to dramatically curtail future illegal immigration".

"We can not allow our country to be violated like this. We certainly do not want any more coming in". Additionally, during many of these downturns, Congress was at least partly controlled by Democrats. They tell us that order and security is going to be restored as long as we don't let "those people" take over, the people who don't look like us or sound like us or pray like we do, the Democratic party leader said.

In today's polarized political climate, finding a bipartisan agreement on illegal immigration becomes harder and harder.

"Here's just one simple fact. Because of family preferences, immigration begets more immigration - a fact of which Schumer is keenly aware".
