Dems Ignore America’s Real Crisis To Focus On Illegal Immigrant Families
President Donald Trump doubled down Tuesday on claims that the widespread family separations taking place at the border are not his fault, and that the true blame lies with the Democrats.
In a tweetstorm, he alleged that Democrats “don’t care about crime” and allow “illegal immigrants to…infest our country.” Democrats refuse to act, he claims, because they see undocumented immigrants as “potential voters.”
As his administration continues to come under pressure from human rights advocates, Democrats, and a growing number of Republicans to put an end to the family separations, the president insists that only Congress can fix the situation.
His tweets reiterated arguments made by Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, who said in her press briefing on Monday afternoon that most children coming into the country are not accompanied by their parents.
He also continued his bizarre line of attack on Germany, claiming that officials were lying about the country’s crime statistics.
We still need to raise about $80,000 by June 30 so we can bring on a full-time reporter and a data scientist to dig deep on disinformation—who’s behind it, how it spreads, and how we can counter it—before this fall’s midterms.
