Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

President Trump said in a tweet Monday night that U.S. immigration agents are planning to make mass arrests starting "next week," an apparent reference to a plan in preparation for months that aims to round up thousands of migrant parents and children in a blitz operation across major U.S. cities.

Don't look at that 2 trillion dollar tax cut they gave themselves, punish the brown people because they are the reason you can't afford your mortgage or rent.
Know something. 80% of the Chinese own their own homes, most own them outright with no mortgage. America has sold out to the rich, they want to own everything like they did in Medievil Europe. 70% of Millenials in China own their own homes. This country is over because of Reaganomics but we have to have a whipping boy so we'll blame it all on illegal immigrants. If you are dumb enough to go along then you deserve the consequences.

You're wrong. It's 90%.

BTW...

"China's trade surplus soared to USD 41.66 billion in May 2019 from USD 23.42 billion in the same month a year earlier and easily beating market consensus of a surplus of USD 20.5 billion. "

Tell me again just how the tariffs are hurting China.

Yay! Mass arrests and more children separated from their mothers. Just in time for summer!

The child rapist is angry. The immigrants must pay the price for all his mistakes.

I am sure we will all just stand around and do nothing while humpy becomes the Mad King of Whales and turns our country into a mad house where we terrorize families and steal parents from children and children from their parents .

I am sad that it has come to this in America but I am not surprised.

This should fire up his base. But I kind of hope he does this.

Because it will fire up the Democrats too. If it doesn't then nothing will.

The far right yes. The middle right, no.

Also, no, you can't deport people that quickly because they have due process rights. If we got rid of those, we'd deport a lot of people who are US citizens. It's happened before.

And if you offer a bounty, you'd have a lot of shoot outs and dead citizens that were misidentified.

#12 | Posted by Sycophant, So they break the law being here, then arm themselves when they have no legal way to obtain firearms. Most of these illegals are already identified, they have overstayed visas. As far as their children- the illegals created the situation, and they can deal with it. Nothing precludes those children from returning with their parents. The first law that should be passed is outlawing birth-right citizenship. It is now a racket. Russian and Chinese come in to do nothing but to deliver a child in the US. Women from Mexico have been dong the same for decades.

Trump's Surprise Promise Of Mass Deportations ‘Next Week'
www.forbes.com

...The specifics of the ICE plan are unclear.

According to the Boston Globe, Trump's tweets were a reference to a secret White House plan to round up and deport undocumented immigrants in ten major U.S. cities.

The Associated Press reports, however, that an unnamed administration official said Trump's tweets referred to the one million undocumented immigrants who have final deportation orders but have not yet left the country....

While he may already have support of the more extreme right, he needs to keep that support energized. That's the main purpose of this exercise.

He is starting his campaign rallies tour, and he needs people he can connect to. He needs the stand up and applaud audience.

That's the group he is appealing to with this recent tweet.

You changed your argument midway through your message.

" ... The objections to this show exactly why no president, especially a Democrat, will ever crack down on employers. ... "

It is more the Republicans, not Democrats, who seem to be reluctant to crack down on employers. If the Republicans were so willing and were only held up be Democrats blocking them, then the meat-packing industries in the midwest would have been swept free of employers who employ the illegal immigrants. But there's nary a peep from that area about going after employers.

" ... You will need hundreds or thousands of ICE raids--which would round up both employers and illegals, and the screaming by the Left would be deafening. ... "

Now you suddenly change to rounding up both employers and the illegal employees. Why? Did you realize your employer-only argument was too weak?

We already have far more voters than Republicans but Republicans only win elections through gerrymandering, voter suppression and out right cheating. Your inability to care about illegal immigrants is really about your inhumane world view which us Democrats find disgusting and immoral. I'd be ashamed if I ever shared your view, even for a moment, and I don't. The thought of deporting a million people is something Hitler would have done, it's sick and demented. I think you should consider the consequences of doing such a crime against humanity. The world will understand those consequences and the Republicans will be remembered throughout history for them.
