Kellyanne Conway: Up to Congress if ICE Raid Order Will Return

By    |   Monday, 24 June 2019 10:26 AM

Whether President Donald Trump's order for immigration raids will be reinstated in two weeks will be "all up to the Democrats in Congress," presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday.

"The president, I, and others who speak on his behalf made clear for a year plus, they can solve some of these problems with one simple session if they would come to the table," Conway told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "They can reform the asylum laws, give us a fix on the Flores settlement, which is a court decision that prevents us from holding children over 21 days. We have to release them into the interior. No one can guarantee what happens when you release them into the interior. We don't know if they're trafficked, if they're violated, (or) if they're killed."

Trump, however, needs Congress to come to the table, as he can't approve everything administratively, she added.

"We have help with Mexico," said Conway. "That is going much better now that Mexico is helping us."

She said she agrees with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who has said all members of Congress should visit the southern border to observe what is going on.

"They ran down there a year ago to make a political point," she said. "They should see the humanitarian national security crisis we have at hand."

Trump spoke with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at length on Friday before agreeing to put the deportations on hold, and Conway said that when the president speaks, such as with Mexico a few weeks ago, "other people seem to snap into attention. I hope that happens here. Congress has to get this done. This is their job."
