President Donald Trump on Thursday lashed out at a compromise immigration bill as a "total catastrophe" — arguing the Department of Homeland Security warns it would be "the end of immigration enforcement in America."

The double-barreled tweet blast targets bills being sponsored by Sens. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., Mike Rounds, R-S.D., and Susan Collins, R-Maine.

The compromise "creates a giant amnesty, (including for dangerous criminals) . . ." he tweeted.

He then argued the plan "doesn't build the wall, expands chain migration, keeps the visa lottery, continues deadly catch-and-release, and bars enforcement even for future illegal immigrants."

"Voting for this amendment would be a vote against law enforcement, and a vote for open borders . . ."

In his mini-tweetstorm, Trump pushed for legislation offered by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, as the only bill worth of "serious consideration" to solve the problem of protection for illegal immigrants brought to the country as children under the expiring Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
