Trump to host Californians critical of state's immigration policies at White House

Trump blames Democrats for 'bad laws' separating undocumented immigrant families

Trump blames Democrats for 'bad laws' separating undocumented immigrant families

But Trump on Wednesday declared of the wall he promised to build as a candidate: "We've made a lot of progress on it".

A small minority of undocumented immigrants are implicated in a disproportionately small number of violent crimes each year, but Trump has painted immigrants as a violent threat since the day he announced his presidential run.

Last week, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen reportedly threatened to resign after being berated by Trump for not doing enough to stop illegal immigration.

"Each of you has bravely resisted California's deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws", Trump told the group gathered in Washington, D.C.

As he has at least once before, Trump in Wednesday's meeting called members of the Central America-based MS-13 gang "animals" and vowed to step up deportations of immigrant gang members.

"Mexico does nothing for us, they do nothing for us", he said.

Trump's remarks were reminiscent of his first press conference as a presidential candidate in 2015, when he said the United States had become a "dumping ground" for people other countries didn't want. "Part of the problem that we have is our economy is so strong that people are pouring up to get into our economy".

The president also turned his attention to Democrats, blaming them for his administration's recent policy announcement that it would separate parents and children at the border if they enter the country illegally. "Mexico does nothing for us, they do nothing for us". The New York Times meanwhile delicately highlighted that Trump was referring to just "some" of the immigrants, not all of them. Chrysler is opening up now in MI.

Communities are coming out against reckless sanctuary policies and in support of our Federal immigration laws that protect the American people.

The House leaders fear the winning legislation would be a compromise bill backed solidly by Democrats but opposed by most Republicans, an outcome that could anger conservatives, according to Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., a leader of the effort to force the immigration votes. The announcement had come a day after Trump said he meant to deploy the National Guard to the US-Mexico border until his administration was able to deliver on his campaign promise to build a wall to bolster security. He exhorted his administration to "do much better" in keeping out undesirable people, including members of transnational gangs like MS-13.
