President Donald Trump just went on another Twitter tirade, this time saying that the law was a “whole big wasted procedure.”
The president was referring to the current laws on the books concerning immigration statuses which do not simply permit agents to kick people out of the country by rounding them up in vans, or some other unethical means.
The laws were made with a purpose – to ensure that a reasonable and fair process was followed.
Here was what the President tweeted:
“As ridiculous as it sounds, the laws of our country do not easily allow us to send those crossing our Southern Border back where they came from. A whole big wasted procedure must take place. Mexico and Canada have tough immigration laws, whereas ours are an Obama joke. ACT Congress.”
Earlier in the day, it was reported that Trump’s administration is now requiring immigration judges around the country to pick up their speed in the courtroom, so they could deport people faster.
Basically, judges now have quotas. Think about that for a second.
The Justice Department will use the new quotas to further evaluate the job performance of the judges, which is pretty much unheard of in American history.
Trump hopes that by instituting these and other changes in the law that he will be better able to effectively deal with the “immigration problem” he says the country has.
On Easter Sunday, he blamed the Democrats (again) for not being able to get a deal on DACA, even though he was the one who dismantled the program in the first place.
“If they’re not going to help us at the border, it’s a very sad thing. Mexico has got help us at the border. And a lot of people are coming in because they want to take advantage of DACA. And we’re going to have to really see,” the president said.
“They had a great chance, the Democrats blew it,” he added. “They had a great, great chance. But we’ll have to take a look. But Mexico has got to help us at the border. They flow right through Mexico. They send them into the United States. Can’t happen that way anymore.”
