The White House’s Twitter page fired a few much-needed questions at the Democrats who support illegal immigrants. Their pointed questions called out Sen. Warren, as well us others, for supporting criminals.
According to The Washington Examiner, Interspersed with smiling photos of President Trump meeting with the prime minister of the Netherlands and first lady Melania Trump visiting Walter Reed, the official White House Twitter feed — not just the president’s famous personal account — has been filled with pointed criticisms of Democrats who want to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“[A]re you supporting human smuggling?” the White House’s social media scribes asked Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., who has introduced a bill to abolish ICE. “You must not know that ICE serves as the leading U.S. law enforcement agency responsible for the fight against it.”
To Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., the White House sent the following message: “[W]hy are you supporting something that would protect drug smugglers? You must not know what CBP and ICE really do.”
.@SenWarren, why are you supporting criminals moving weapons, drugs, and victims across our nation’s borders? You must not know what ICE really does. Here is a link to help you out: https://t.co/5CiTKkIs4c
And then Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., was asked: “[W]hy are you supporting the animals of MS-13? You must not know what ICE really does.”
Each tweet featured a link to online resources explaining ICE’s mission. The White House has also been busily tweeting and retweeting examples of ICE agents’ heroism. All this amplifies what the president has been saying about the immigration enforcement agency on the Internet and in public.
The Twitter blast came after the growing tensions over immigration reached a deadlock. Even after Trump ended the separation crisis. There is an apparent break down between Congress and the DOJ on this one.
U.S. District Court Judge Dolly Gee in California dismissed as “tortured” the White House’s arguments on the decades-old Flores consent from 1997, which declared that children in immigration detention cannot be held for more than 20 days.
“Defendants seek to light a match to the FloresAgreement and ask this Court to upend the parties’ agreement by judicial fiat,” Gee, an appointee of former President Obama, wrote in the ruling. “It is apparent that Defendants’ Application is a cynical attempt…to shift responsibility to the Judiciary for over 20 years of Congressional inaction and ill-considered Executive action that have led to the current stalemate.”
