Trump Rips Dems on Immigration: 'Blue Wave Means Crime'

Trump Rips Dems on Immigration: 'Blue Wave Means Crime'

By    |   Monday, 20 August 2018 04:51 PM

President Donald Trump ripped Democrats, sanctuary cities, and the current state of the nation's immigration system during a fiery speech at a White House event honoring members of U.S. Customs and Border Patrol and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Monday afternoon.

Addressing the crowd assembled for the "Salute to the Heroes" event — which included newly installed Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost — in the East Room, Trump invited a few members of the immigration law enforcement community to speak before turning his focus on Democrats.

Trump said officials in sanctuary cities are "extremist," are in favor of open borders, and "don't mind crime."

"In major cities across the nation, these open-border radicals have blocked access to ICE buildings, defaced public property, and threatened public safety," Trump said.

He emphasized his point by accusing sanctuary city officials and ICE protesters of having "no courage. They have no guts, they just have big, loud mouths."

As Trump went on, his remarks began to resemble a campaign speech as he continued to criticize the left and make promises of how he plans to fix the nation's immigration system.

"Any politician who puts criminal aliens before American citizens should find a new line of work, because it's not going to work," he said.

"This new wave of anti-borders, anti-law enforcement extremism and shameful, dangerous, and horrible in every way and it's going to stop. It's going to stop right now."

Trump predicted that Republicans will fare better than some people claim they will in the November midterm elections, which would prevent a blue wave from sweeping through the halls of Congress. Republicans currently control the House and Senate.

"I think we're going to have much more of a red wave than what you are going to see as a phony blue wave," Trump said. "Blue wave means crime. It means open borders. Not good."
