Prime News, International, Washington DC (USA), May 17:- United States President Donald Trump on Wednesday described as “animals” some illegal immigrants as he slammed the US’ “dumbest” immigration laws and asserted that only people based on merit should enter America.
Venting out his frustration at officials in Mexico and California, Trump vowed to strengthen the US’ “weak” immigration laws. “We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in—and we’re stopping a lot of them—but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals,” Trump said during a California Sanctuary State Roundtable at the White House.
“We are taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy,” he said.
Trump blamed the influx of illegal immigrants in the US on the country’s “dumbest laws”. He has called on Congress repeatedly in recent months to enact stricter laws to limit the number of immigrants who come across the US-Mexico border. “The dumbest laws, as I said before, the dumbest laws on immigration in the world. So we’re going to take care of it, Margaret. We’ll get it done,” he said during the roundtable which was attended by political leaders and law enforcement officials from California. –(Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
