Trump’s opposition continues to complicate matters related to illegal immigration. Although, the White House has time and again refused to support the DRAM act, Democrats continue to push it as a their move to get an action on immigration related issues, from the Congress.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who appears to be rising a contender for the 2020 presidential run expressed, “I think there is some bipartisan support for solutions to this issue.”
“But we frankly need to get more Republicans on board,” she added.
President Trump appears to be in complete support of GOP Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.) and David Perdue (Ga.) to tighten security measures governing legal immigration by setting up a “merit-based” points system and by limiting the number of green cards being issued each year.
The President’s much promised US-Mexico bordering wall is also being continually questioned by Trump’s opposition in their efforts to create more hurdles for the Trump administration.
Very recently, Rep. Ruben Gallego of Arizona went on to blame the House Republicans in trying to push a “sneaky gimmick” that could lead to military funding being used for the construction of President Trump’ US-Mexico bordering wall.
Talking about the latest amendment introduced by by Republican Reps. Steven Palazzo and Trent Kelly, Gallego stated, “This rule is a travesty.” And that, “If we vote to approve it, an amendment unanimously supported by the Armed Services committee … to prevent President Trump from using our military’s money to build his border wall, will suddenly vanish,” he continued. “It’s a legislative magic trick, a sneaky gimmick designed to disguise their actions,” Gallego said. “Once again, Speaker Ryan and the House Republicans are doing President Trump’s dirty work.”
“They didn’t have the courage to pose my amendment in committee, or even on the House floor,” Gallego argued. “They passed this rule late at night with hardly anyone watching, in typical Republican fashion. Republicans are resorting to deceptive legislative tactics to do Trump’s bidding, just for his small fragile ego.”
Gallego continued to argue that the decision was “simply to ensure [Department of Defense] resources aren’t siphoned off for a pointless wall that we don’t need and can’t afford,” he said. “We have a … responsibility to ensure that money meant to address real national security challenges isn’t diverted to combat imaginary ones that the president has created.”
If this wasn’t enough, Gallego, even went even low and called President Trump “racist.” While, talking to radio host Dean Obeidallah, last week, Gallego stated, ““It’s disappointing that Trump doesn’t show any leadership – doesn’t even do attempt to do it on his own – for someone who will tweet about anything that he sees like a leak…but he won’t tweet about this.”
“At the core, we just have to admit Donald Trump himself is a racist. He is an absolute racist,” he added.
