US President Donald Trump said that he will not take any move to separate the children of the illegal migrants who have not actual documents to make entry to the US, but he will also resume the persisting policy which prevents people to cross the border illegally just like a trip to “Disneyland”.
The US President told reporters at the White House, “ we are not looking to do it”.
President Trump told the custom, which was ceased in June in 2018 due to heavy legal and political pressure, had a significant role to block the illegal flow of immigrants across the US-Mexico border.
President Trump said about migrants and asylum seekers, “I’ll tell you something: once you don’t have it, that’s why you have many more people coming ”.
President also added, “They are coming like it’s a picnic, like ‘let’s go to Disneyland ”. Just in the last week, he cited the asylum proceedings as a “hoax”.
The battle of the US President for blocking the illegal immigration and rising numbers of asylum seekers has triggered the largest political fight in the country before the Presidential election in the last year. The Republicans are forcing hard for the construction of hundreds of miles of new border wall and layers of razor wire. He says that the United States is “full” and can not be able to accommodate more migrants, escaping from Central America due to the rising violence and economic instability of the nations.
President Trump rudely declared the departure of the official in charge of dealing with the matter of illegal trespassing of migrants – Secretary of Homeland Kirstjen Nielsen. According to reports of US media, the reshuffling moves by Trump could trigger tougher measures on the southern border.
The latest comment of the US President is a sharp reflection of the confused nature of the messaging of the White House on the sensitive immigration issue.
Trump professed that he was not the for of separating children from their parents while they entered the US, crossing borders illegally or tried to get asylum. Even President Trump accused his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama.
President Trump said, “Just so you understand, President Obama separated the children. Those cages that were shown — I think they were very inappropriate — were by President Obama’s administration, not by Trump. President Obama had child separation ”
