While President Trump is trying to find a solution to the border crisis and rising tide of illegal immigration, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is tweeting out his "congratulations."
This is an historic night!@realDonaldTrump has announced that he has cut a deal to “greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States.”— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) June 8, 2019
Now that that problem is solved, I’m sure we won’t be hearing any more about it in the future. https://t.co/DNNfbevkGP
The sarcasm wasn't lost on Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ).
The sarcasm from the Senate Minority Leader, who has helped lead the charge against border security, isn't lost on Americans affected by illegal immigration - especially our Angel families.— Rep Andy Biggs (@RepAndyBiggsAZ) June 10, 2019
Time for all members of Congress to join @realDonaldTrump to secure our southern border. https://t.co/r1iBJfjPYu
Last Friday, Trump announced that his planned tariffs against Mexico were cancelled because the two nations reached an agreement on helping to curb illegal migration. According to the State Department, Mexico agreed to deploy the National Guard throughout the country - especially near the border - and would help "dismantle human smuggling and trafficking organizations as well as their illicit financial and transportation networks," among other courses of action.
Of course, if Mexico doesn't follow through, Trump said the tariffs would be back on.
....We do not anticipate a problem with the vote but, if for any reason the approval is not forthcoming, Tariffs will be reinstated!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 10, 2019
