Trump: Democrats 'Don't Care' About Border Security

Tuesday, 10 Oct 2017 07:00 AM

President Donald Trump says that reaching out to congressional Democrats for help in getting immigration legislation passed is difficult because "the Democrats don't want secure borders."

Trump sent out a tweet early Tuesday charging that Democrats "don't care about safety for U.S.A."

His Twitter post came only two days after Trump sent an immigration overhaul wish-list of legislative proposals to congressional leaders, including a requirement that Congress agree to a host of border security improvements and make significant changes to the green card program.

Trump had said on Sunday there needs to be security enhancements — and the border wall that he's demanded — before he'd sign onto a bill restoring a program that shields from deportation young people brought to the United States illegally when they were children.
