FLOTUS spox Sunday said the President “hates” to see families separated but wants Congress to come up with immigration reform.
President Trump made similar statements on Twitter.
“The Democrats are forcing the breakup of families at the Border with their horrible and cruel legislative agenda. Any Immigration Bill MUST HAVE full funding for the Wall, end Catch & Release, Visa Lottery and Chain, and go to Merit Based Immigration. Go for it! WIN!,” Trump tweeted.
“Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change! This is why we need more Republicans elected in November. Democrats are good at only three things, High Taxes, High Crime and Obstruction. Sad!” Trump later tweeted.
What the media is failing to report is that people are often separated from their families if they commit a crime. These families knew before coming to the border that there is a risk of being separated.
