Trump Tells Congress: Our Immigration Laws are Insane, Fix Them

Fresh off of the Independence Day, mid-week holiday, President Trump is wasting no time demanding Congress get back to work to fix what he says are "insane" immigration laws. 


The tweet storm comes two weeks after the president signed an executive order ending the separation of illegal alien adults from children in detention centers. 

"We're signing an executive order. I consider it to be a very important executive order. It's about keeping families together while at the same time being sure that we have a very powerful, very strong border, and border security will be equal if not greater than previously,” Trump said at the White House, flanked by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. "We’re going to have strong, very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together. I didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated."


Adults and children are now being detained together, but can only be held for 20 days before they are required by federal law to be released into the United States. They are also given an immigration court date and the majority fail to show up. This effectively restores catch and release. The zero tolerance policy of prosecuting everyone who enters the country illegally still stands.

Meanwhile, a number of Democrats and their leftist allies are calling for the abolishment of ICE and claim entering the United States illegally should not be a crime.
