Trump on immigrant gang members: 'These aren't people, they're animals'

Local law enforcement and elected officials met with President Donald Trump today in Washington D.C. They discussed California's sanctuary state policies and how they've impacted communities.

We have people coming into the country - they're trying to come in, we're stopping a lot of them - but we're taking out of the country.

Trump has clashed with the liberal state repeatedly about myriad issues environmental regulations, budget policies and minority rights - yet the most divisive has been the disagreement over immigration enforcement.

Despite California officials' attempts to thwart federal immigration authorities' efforts, Trump said his administration remains committed to deporting violent criminals, such as MS-13 gang members, by the "thousands".


Trump's detractors took the comments to apply to all illegal immigrants, even though the context appeared to be in respect to illegal alien gang members.

President TrumpDonald John TrumpOregon governor to face state rep in November Ashford, Eastman neck and neck in Nebraska Dem primary Progressive pick Wild wins Dem primary for Pa. House seat MORE on Wednesday condemned some illegal immigrant gang members as "animals" and vowed to strengthen the country's immigration laws. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. He referred to some who cross the border illegally as "animals", not people. Flying in a dozen Republican politicians to flatter him and praise his reckless policies changes nothing. "We, the citizens of the fifth-largest economy in the world, are not impressed", Brown said in a statement.

CNN commentator Keith Boykin argued Trump's comments were "the same dehumanization tactic used by slave traders and slave owners to justify the oppression of black people for hundreds of years". "They want us as their city council members to uphold the Constitution and work with the USA immigration officials". Gen. Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, are also scheduled to attend.

Trump has made his disdain for undocumented immigrants one of his key messages since the days of his campaign. But we're taking people out of the country, you wouldn't believe how bad these people are. That clause gives federal law precedence over state measures. We have to break up families. because of the Democrats. The administration is using protocols described in a 2008 law created to combat child trafficking that gave special protections to Central American children at the border. The gang later spread to many parts of the continental United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America, and is active in urban and suburban areas.
