Posted on 06/22/2019 1:30:50 PM PDT by Innovative
President Trump announced Saturday that a planned mass roundup of illegal immigrants by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is being delayed for two weeks, in the hope that a bipartisan solution to the border crisis can be reached.
At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border, he tweeted.
If not, Deportations start! he added.

Exactly. Trump’s vacillation is making me sick. The Democrats say BOO, and he runs for cover.
Not to worry.
I have faith in Trump and the American people — some of them, anyway.
He’s not playing chess; he’s playing chicken and losing badly.
What nonsensical drivel.
Here’s what Trump could/should have done and where he has made it worse:
They will be this weekend, hiding in attics and crawl-spaces, LOL!
The progs playing at Corrie Ten Bloom might also have time to sweat. At the least, they can cater to the invaders until they get good and sick of it and their protectees begin demanding and expecting.
Pits in stomachs all around.
It puts the democrats in a box
TFix the problems or we will deport everyone
The GOP just gave the democrats everything they wanted to fund
the caring for these illegals...
Why would they? Trump announced deportations. Then he called off deportations. And he's no closer to fulfilling his campaign promises than in 2016. If I warn my kids they'll be punished for not cleaning their rooms, and they don't clean their room, and I don't punish them..........
We are STILL reaping the fallout from THAT!)
Don’t totally disagree with you on that, but perhaps some of that new Hispanic support comes from people who’s grandparents/parents were amnestied. Lots of 2nd/3rd generation Mexicans who are fully assimilated.
Fully agree on your last statement, too.
The “raids” seemed fake anyway. It was announced far in advance, even locations and methods and plans. Cities were prepared to resist, and NGO were prepared to present sobbing women and children for the Trump-is-Hitler/Concentration Camps narrative.
*** “What nonsensical drivel” ***
witty? nope (You fail at spandex wearing movie hero repartee)
All good points on the attachment and I can’t disagree with doing any or all of them. He cannot do them alone, nor all at once (otherwise he would have)
You think you carry around 51% of everything in Your pocket, Run for Office. If you have that 51% Magic guaranteed... I will Vote for you.
I think Trump pushes the “Press” the “Never Trumpers” the Congress and the shrinking “Dems” to the limit every day and keeps getting more and more done.
Trump has accomplished more since he announced his Run on the escalator than you have in your entire Life... If you disagree with that please tell me what color Spandex you wear and what your Super Power is (I might go watch that Movie)
Reasonable my ass. Once again threaten like a bad ass, and delay the threat like a pnssy when you think that the optics will be bad in the media....as if that matters anymore. Hit Iran! Deport illegals! Build the wall! Declassify Everything!
Exactly. San Fran Nan is going to budge so this just brings the dem intransigence to the forefront....
Of THAT I have ZERO doubts. I have been preaching to anyone who will listen that either in 2021 or 2025 the dims will get the house, senate and presidency. The very first thing I believe they will do is amend the 1964 civil right amendment to include LGBT..XYZ. This will pretty much kill the 501c3 in America...and Christianity as we have known it for the last 50 years. It will be time to put up or shut up in so many churches. What we have seen in Catholic charities with Obama-care and what we see in Canada is just a pre-cursor to what is coming.
If he doesn't win in 2020 and can't stack any more juticices on the court...then we are really hosed. If he can win in 2020 and we can replace a couple of our older ones and RBG...we may have a chance....but let's face it...we are living on borrowed time either way. I live in Tejas. Right now only 27.7% of the kids in public school (K-12) are white. NO...that was not a typo...27.7%. Texas is not long for the GOP.
Trump has NEVER been helpless on the immigration issue.
8 U.S.C. §1182(f)
“Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
Trump could also implement Universal E-Verify by Executive Order - because it has a pristine legal history of statutes, regulations, and Executive Orders that date back to 1986.
Bottom Line - Trump has never been an immigration hawk, except on the issue of violent illegal immigrants.
After 29 months in office, Trump has just one quantifiable achievement on immigration - he reduced UN Refugees from 80,000 per year to 30,000 per year.
On every other important immigration metric, Trump's numbers are within plus or minus 10% of Obama’s numbers.
Congress will only consider amnesty as a solution.
The GOP wants amnesty, too.
Most of them would not sign on.
Flimsey Grahamnesty has to be removed from office.
He has said repeatedly he will work for amnesty until he is removed from office.
Every month, over 100,000+ foreign nationals are caught trying to violate our laws, and at least another 100,000+ are not caught. Every damned month.
Our nation of laws and national sovereignty should not be turned into a political football.
If the deal Trump is looking for includes amnesty for ANY of the illegals, that will errode his credibility with his base.
Fix the problems or we will deport everyone.
Should be deporting all illegal aliens anyway.
The only thing Congress will offer is amnesty.
