President Trump accuses Democrats in Congress of putting the protection of illegal aliens above the protection of Americans.
During his weekly radio address, the President called for an end to sanctuary cities, noting the tragedy of the killing of Kate Steinle by an illegal released by San Francisco.
The President says the Dems are willing to shut down the government to protect so-called Dreamer illegals.
“Our cities should be sanctuary for Americans, not for criminal aliens. Unfortunately, Democrats in Congress not only oppose our efforts to stop illegal immigration and crackdown on sanctuary cities,” said the President. “Now they are demanding amnesty as a condition for funding the government, holding troop funding hostage, and putting our national security at risk.”
The President also said he mourns for American families who will have empty seats at Christmas this year, because federal immigration laws were not enforced in various states and cities.
He added that Americans should not be separated [ forever ] from their family and friends because of preventable crime committed by illegals.
