Trump: Dems want government shutdown to let in ‘illegal immigrants’


By: Bob Fredericks | The NY Post

President Trump on Wednesday accused Democrats of wanting a government shutdown so that illegal immigrants could flood into the US — and bring crime, terrorism and drugs with them.

“The Democrats are really looking at something that is very dangerous for our country,” Trump said during a Cabinet meeting at the White House.

“They are looking at shutting down. They want to have illegal immigrants, in many cases people that we don’t want in our country — they want to have illegal immigrants pouring into our country, bring with them crime, tremendous amounts of drugs,” he continued.

“We don’t want to have that. We want to have a great beautiful, crime-free country.”

He also hailed the Supreme Court ruling allowing his travel ban to go into effect, saying it would help keep radical Islamic terrorists at bay.

“We want people to come into our country but we want the to come on our basis. That’s why we’re being so careful with our process and our screening,” the president said.

“We had a tremendous victory the other day in the Supreme Court with the ban. That was a tremendous victory for this is the country.”

But Democrats, he insisted, favored policies that would lead to more crime and terrorism.
