Trump on ‘garbage compromise’: ‘I will never sign a bill that allows for mass release of illegal criminals’

President Donald Trump says he will not sign a federal spending bill that would allow the mass release of criminal illegal aliens into the country, as proposed by the Democrats.

Trump made the remarks during a rally in El Paso, Texas, amid revelations that a tentative deal had been reached to avert another government shutdown.

“I will never sign a bill that forces the mass release of illegal criminals into our country. I will never oppose or in any way mistreat our great heroes from ICE, border patrol and law enforcement.

We will always stand with those brave men and women. We will always be with them. We will take care of them just like they take care of us.”

 

Dems Wanted To Limit ICE Detention Beds

Democrats have reportedly offered $1.375 billion in funding for a barrier along the US-Mexico border and money for 40,000 beds for ICE detention beds.

Earlier in the day, Democrats had demanded a drastic reduction on the number of beds in ICE detention facilities ― a move that would lead to the release of thousands of criminal illegal immigrants onto the streets.

Deputy ICE Director Matthew Albence called the suggestion “extremely damaging for the public safety of this country.”

Hannity Rips ‘Garbage Compromise’

Fox News host Sean Hannity slammed the latest Democrat offer of $1.375 billion for the border wall, saying it’s not enough.

“$1.3 billion? That’s not even a wall, a barrier,” Hannity said. “Any Republican that supports this garbage compromise, you will have to explain. Look at the country. Look at CBS News: Even they say 72 percent of the American people want the heroin to stop, the cartels to stop, the gang members to stop and those that wish us ill.”

Hannity was referring to a CBS News/YouGov poll that showed that 72% of Americans support Trump’s position on illegal immigration.

Trump Has Authority to Declare National Emergency

Hannity then suggested that President Trump declare a national emergency to build the border wall without help from obstructionist Democrats.

As BizPac Review reported, Trump has the constitutional authority to do this. A president can declare that the nation is in a state of national emergency at his discretion.

Given the heavy financial burdens and criminal costs of illegal immigration borne by US taxpayers ($113 billion a year and 5,475 Americans murdered every year by illegals), Trump has a solid argument for declaring a national emergency and building the border wall.

Harvard Law professor Mark Tushnet said President Trump is on “very solid legal ground.”

“The Department of Defense has funds in its account that are not specifically designated for anything,” Tushnet explained. My instinct is to say that if he declares a national emergency and uses this pot of unappropriated money for the wall, he’s on very solid legal ground.”

By the way, the costs of illegal immigration keep ballooning by the day.
