Donald Trump: ‘Crazy’ Democrats Trying to Stop ICE from Deporting Illegal Immigrants

| February 11, 2019

Dems propose ICE cap.

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said Sunday that, whatever Congress may propose in a border security compromise, President Donald Trump will get his wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“The president is going to build the wall,” Mulvaney said on “Fox News Sunday.” “This is going to get built with or without Congress.”

The negotiations hit a roadblock Sunday when Democrats pushed to cap the number of illegal immigrants that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) can detain at one time.

Democrats on the bipartisan compromise border security committee to fund the wall issued a demand for a “cap” on the number of beds used for detained illegal immigrants.

“The Democrats do not want us to detain, or send back, criminal aliens!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “This is a brand new demand. Crazy!”

Democrats on the bipartisan compromise border security committee to fund the wall issued a demand for a “cap” on the number of beds used for detained illegal immigrants.

“For far too long, the Trump administration has been tearing communities apart with its cruel immigration policies,” Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) said in a statement. “A cap on ICE detention beds will force the Trump administration to prioritize deportation for criminals and people who pose real security threats, not law-abiding immigrants who are contributing to our country.”

Trump also reacted to the new demands on Sunday.

“The Border Committee Democrats are behaving, all of a sudden, irrationally,” he wrote. “Not only are they unwilling to give dollars for the obviously needed Wall (they overrode recommendations of Border Patrol experts), but they don’t even want to take muderers (sic) into custody! What’s going on?”

Dems are making a strategic error- the wall, fence, barricade, whatever you call it will be built. They could have had extended protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and immigrants with protective status, things the Dems have lobbied for in the past. If they can’t, or won’t come to a consensus they will lose that, and the wall will go up anyway.

    Is this something akin to using a dessert spoon to dig a well?

    Or is it just another tantrum thrown by the Democrats?

    The Wall is already under construction. How were they planning to stop it? Was Nancy Pantsy going to drive down there and take a pair of wirecutters to it?

    Big mistakes are becoming the Democrats forte as of late. The way they talk lately you’d think they control the House, Senate and Presidency. It appears to me as if they don’t understand the House by itself can do nothing. The Senate doesn’t have to hear anything the House proposes and the President damn sure doesn’t have to sign it if the Senate were to approve it.

    And yet another (D) unforced error.

    Yet more evidence that those in the (D) party are criminally insane.

      Their current platform consists of nothing except, “Orange Man Bad”

      When Obama and Schumer and Clinton were calling for illegals to be rounded up and sent home no one called that racist, in fact it was called responsible immigration policy because Obama said it wasn’t fair that some folks were trying to cut in line ahead of those who were doing the right thing and applying for entry legally.

      Now I’m supposed to believe it’s racist because of Trump, it sounds more than a little sketchy or hypocritical to me…

    I hope the D-rats keep cutting their own throats like this!

  5. David says:

    Dunno, I sorta agree with the Dems… restrict the number of beds, deport the rest. I like it.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Never paint yourself into a corner if you can help it. Say the cap has been reached, now what? Stop arresting illegals, no matter the crime, until a bed become available? This is just another attempt to maintain the status quo as it pertains to Dem friendly voters crossing the border.

  6. Perry Gaskill says:

    President Trump might be wrong about the Democrats and the ICE bed cap issue being crazy; if you do a deep enough dive, there are strong indications that what’s actually going on is part of an open-borders agenda. Cap the beds, and you’ve increased the prospect for catch-and-release.

    Part of the political reality of this is also that Lucille Roybal-Allard, for example, comes from a district in Los Angeles which is 86 percent Hispanic. An additional aspect is that Los Angeles County is home to an estimated one million illegals, which is the largest concentration in the country. Roybal-Allard’s election to office is dependent on pleasing a constituency which wants open borders, and she’ll do what it takes to stay in office and has for more than 30 years. Whether that’s in the best interest of the rest of the country or not is apparently irrelevant.

    In making an appointment of Roybal-Allard to the DHS appropriations committee, Nancy Pelosi has created a situation where the fox is going to be guarding the hen house. Even though Roybal-Allard has a clear conflict of interest, issues such as ethics and national sovereignty are evidently supposed to be set aside in the interest of Democratic Party power games.

      Bam! Nailed it Perry G and VoV. “she’ll do what it takes to stay in office and has for more than 30 years.” Exactly what is wrong with this country. Been there sucking up at the sugar teat for 30 years, Bitch you are a big part of the problem….”Orange man bad.”

      Seriously, is it not past time that we gathered the pitchforks, lit the torches, and started a March on Congress?
