Mr. Trump gave a preview of sorts of the meeting in a tweet Friday morning. “We must maintain a Strong Southern Border,” he said. “We cannot allow our Country to be overrun by illegal immigrants as the Democrats tell their phony stories of sadness and grief, hoping it will help them in the elections. Obama and others had the same pictures, and did nothing about it!”

ok, let's just wait and see if the media has it right this time. They're predicting that Trump intends to use these families as political props. They're using a tweet and claiming it's a preview of what he intends to say. The tweet is bad enough on it's own. His own party didn't like the images he's calling "phony stories". No one with a heart did. Nor are Democrats the ones that are preventing comprehensive immigration legislation from being passed. As a matter of fact, he's actually making it more difficult for his own party to pass an immigration bill. So yeah, let's just see what he actually says at this gathering.

There's literally tons of stories of people whose lives were saved by illegals including some locals who were woken up and helped out of their homes by one during the fires last October

That's one of the more despicable bullshit the right wingers try to do. There are plenty of American citizen criminals, so its just dishonest nonsense to point to an illegal committing a crime to pretend there is a widespread problem yet do nothing to deal with American citizens who commit the vast majority of crimes.

Just like the dishonest right wingers who ignores all the gun violence in this country and pick s what amounts to a much smaller sample size of people who protect themselves with guns and that somehow means that wipes out the fact there is ridiculous amount of bun violence

Typical dishonest nonsense from people that lack facts, logic and reasoning to support their position

Trump has to shift focus off backing down on his policy with his base. This is clearly for his base.

Trump had a unique opportunity to actually fix some immigration problems. Instread he retreats to the comfort of his base.

For the past two days Trump supporters have pointed out ...What Obama did vis a vis immigrant children and families...yet they will not hold Trump to calling on GOP Congress to Do Nothing on Immigration.

Please Trump supporter ...Stop using Obama as shade for what Trump is not doing 4 years later.

Failure to lead ...Big Time.

personally, I don't think liberals that call folks "illegals" are much better. No human being is illegal.
For many, the term "illegal alien" serves an entirely different purpose. As David Bacon points out in his book "Illegal People: How Globalization Creates Immigration and Criminalizes Immigrants," the term is used as a divisive tool to define the social strata in which some believe that undocumented immigrants should be confined. It serves to distinguish those with papers from those without, and to cement the idea that "illegal" people should be entitled to fewer rights and privileges. Simply put, the term is an effective tool in the age old struggle of inequality between the "haves" and the "have nots."

I did call aliens illegals. not out of habit nor out of any other reason than that the US government uses that determination in its rules and provisions.

I have changed my use. When the Trump administration calls asylum seekers illegals that is proof the word is being used as a weapon against them.

Trump is also attempting to paint all aliens as no different than MS-13 gang members as is evident in his meeting with families whose family member were killed by criminals.

I will no long participate in Trump's sick game.

He actually did it!



He autographed the photos of the alleged murder victims! Crass doesn't come close!

Neither does the crime rate of illegal mmigrants compared to the American-born population.

well, that was pretty bizarre.
He did exactly as the media predicted.
Shamefully, saying that these families were "permanently" separated from their loved ones. Well yeah, everyone that loses a loved one is permanently separated from them.
