President Trump's Weekly Address...MS-13 A Focus

Washington, DC...My fellow Americans, This week, prosecutors, law enforcement officers, homeland security officials, and lawmakers joined me at the White House to address a very vicious threat to our communities—the savage gang, MS-13. Glaring loopholes in our laws have allowed criminals and gang members to break into our country. For example, under current law, unaccompanied alien minors at the border are released into American communities no matter where, no matter how, it is so easy for them because the laws are bad and they have to be changed. This loophole is easily exploited by MS-13, which now operates in at least 40 states.

In addition to MS-13, many other gangs are breaking into our country routinely because our laws are so weak, so sad, so pathetic.

At this week’s roundtable, we learned the story of one family right here in Washington, D.C. that hosted a person in their home, who then began to recruit their young son to MS-13. When the boy’s mother tried to stop it, the gang member shot her in the head, blinding her for life. She’s lucky she lived, but she’s paying a very big price.

During my State of the Union, I called on Congress to immediately close dangerous loopholes in federal law that have endangered our communities and imposed enormous burdens on U.S. taxpayers.

My Administration has identified three major priorities for creating a safe, modern and lawful immigration system: fully securing the border, ending chain migration, and canceling the visa lottery. Chain migration is a disaster and very unfair to our country. The visa lottery is something that should have never been allowed in the first place. People enter a lottery to come into our country. What kind of a system is that? It is time for Congress to act and to protect Americans. Every member of Congress should choose the side of law enforcement, and the side of the American People. That’s the way it has to be.

Dennis Mills must resign. He has brought shame on our county with his duplicitous and petty mind set.
Be a man and retire before you go to jail Dennis.

    Mills is an idiot. He won’t see the writing on the wall. Anyone who thinks he is crooked should contact the Calaveras County Grand Jury and make a complaint which by law will be confidential, and the person making the complain cannot be disclosed

    Deport the MS-13 scum and deport the liberal democrats with them. They could start a whole new country, maybe call it Freeloader Friendlyville.

      Deport citizens because you don’t like them? That is a really in-American thing to say. I have never seen a post on here calling for the deportation of Trump lovers. So there is the problem. The nation would be much better off if Trump and his lackeys were deported. But you don’t see your hated liberals calling for that.

Trump is dangerous. He has a staff who cannot obtain security clearances necessary for their jobs, yet they are given top secret national security information. Jared Kushner is one of them. Rob Portner was another. trump hired Flynn, knowing he had close contacts with Russian age nets and was subject to monitoring by the intelligence community.

To deny this is ignorance.

    MS 13- A Fed Program
    Posted on: 2018-02-12 19:41:19   By: Anonymous
    The Federal government started MS13.
    It is a straw man, trump is once again trying a distraction from his treasonous campaign.
    The trump supporters need to shut off Fox and hate radio and get real news, facts.

    If you believe trump's Fox's BS You Were Played

    Wake up, America is going down. Oligarchy Not Democracy

    Are you competent to know what Oligarchy is? probably not, sad.

    Look it up if you don't know.

    Also fascism.

          Sure, just keep drinking the Clinton kool-aid. The left is over the edge without a safety net and are falling faster by the day.

        Gawd you must be a trump/Russian bot. Flynn, Carter, Trump jr., and other trump have been closely involved with Russian agents. Trump refuses to impose sanctions on Russia ordered in law by congress. At congressio hearings today the top US intelligence officials said reusing corrpupted our election and will do so again in 2018, and the White...that is teump.... have done nothing to stop Russian interference. In fact trump defends continues to defend Putin and Russia. Anyone who does not see this is closing the eyes, their ears, and their minds to the facts and the greatest threat to our democracy that has ever existed.

White House

The Trump White House and Trump’s Administration is full of crooks, liars, incompetents, and other miscreants who can’t get national security clearances.

The only cure is for sensible people to vote out every Candidate who supports Trump.

    Yea, lets get Hillary and Bill back where they belong. Oh wait, if they belong in jail can they still govern from there? And now the collusion continues to plague our country. The evidence is overwhelming how Russia played a large part in our recent election. Only problem for the left though is the collusion was between the DNC and Hillary, not President Trump---DARN!!!
