Kansas City 'Undocumented' Waiting Game: Prez Trump Delays ICE Immigration Roundup

The reality is that illegal immigrants are captured and deported every day but this gambit by the Prez is mostly political posturing for the sake of rallying and distracting supporters and opponents alike . . . Here's the latest tease as both criminal justice and policy is now played with game show tactics:

President Trump announces delay of ICE raids that target undocumented families

President Donald Trump announced Saturday that he would delay the White House's plans to begin mass raids Sunday against undocumented families. Sharing the news on Twitter, the president said that "at the request of Democrats" the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) would delay the planned mass raid targeting people with deportation orders.

Fact is that time is on the President's side when it comes to the this issue. His crowds love deportations and these tough tactics. If anything, as 2020 gets closer, these strong moves will pay off even more. He knows his audience better than anyone.

We can wait, just not too long.

3:12 Bullshit.

His behavior pattern is obvious. He threatens to do something stupid, nasty & divisive, then changes his mind to seem reasonable when, in reality, he has done nothing as he planned all along.

He said he didn't have to appeal to swing voters because his base is so strong. His approval rating has never been above 45%. He will lose so badly that he can't claim voter fraud, or any of his usual nonsense. If it's close he will call on his supporters to come to the White House to demand that he remain in power. He is a dangerous demagogue, but that is all. He is not a "stable genius" & he doesn't play "3d chess", even two dimensional chess is too complicated for this retard.

LOCK HIM UP!

Talk, talk, talk.

Tweet, tweet, tweet.

Surrender.

Twice this week alone. First Iran and now illegals. Last week he caved to Mexico on border security.

What a pussy.

Yea, let's let everyone come illegally into our country to sap our social safety nets, damage job opportunities for legal residents, raise our taxes to support the expansion of government assistance programs, negatively affect the ability of teachers to teach the English-speaking students of legal residents, and crowd our cities and transportation systems even more. Sales taxes in the late '90s were about 6.5%. Now they are close to 10% in many places. All that government assistance money needs to come from somewhere.

Why isn't Trump telling ICE to deport violent criminals?

This whole "raid" targeting families that overstayed visas doesn't make us safer and is a huge waste of time. Go after drug dealers, rapists and murderers. Now. You don't need Congress for that.

He's giving the democrats one more chance to work together on this then he closing the door on them while they hang themselves again. Got to hand it to Trump he's slick when it comes to dealing with them.

Trump got played by the deep state. ICE is still pissed about not getting paid during Trump's government shutdown.

ICE put together a token plan targeting 2,000 illegal and told Trump about the law enforcement operation, knowing he can't keep his mouth shut or his small thumbs off twitter.

Of course, he leaked it. That tipped off all the targets, making the operation pointless. So, now it has to be cancelled and he looks like a moron. Again. He can't be trusted with national security details.

Does anyone really think this will get him a deal with Democrats??? Hell no. He's just trying to cover his ass now.

Predicted this the day it was announced.

The only thing he hasn't flip-flopped on was the standard GOP Tax Cut for the Wealthy that every Republican Administration starts with as soon as they get into Office.

He may be playing 3-D Chess as @3:11 says, but the Game in progress is Risk.

No wall. No Mexican Pesos to pay for it. Republicans wouldn't pay for it in 2017 and 2018. NAFTA is still in place. No border shut down, despite multiple threats to do so. A wasteful government shutdown that didn't force Democrats to pay for the wall in 2019. An unconstitutional emergency that courts are striking down. Border crossings are up. Deportations are down. A fake deal with Mexico relying on them to protect the border. Now a completely botched national deportation operation.

I'm beginning to think this Trump guy isn't a straight shooter.

So much surrendering.

^^^ blame the dummocraps for blocking the way....

"Undocumented families" is a euphemism for illegal entrants. Give them documents and they're still illegal because they had no documents when they crossed our border.

Anonymous said...

7:28 - Dummocraps weren't in charge in 2017 and 2018. Trump had 2 years with GOP control of Congress and did nothing.

Stop carrying the water. The buck stops at the top. Remember, he alone can fix it. On day 1. Trump has lied to us about getting tough on illegals for too long.

Gee Tony I thought your AWESOME INSIDERS said they had already started at the courthouse on Friday. You did say that didn't you? So you were just making that up?

Sure, you did.

In 24 hours the ICE deportation policy went from "we have no choice" to never mind, just kidding.

Trump is now using his office to direct ICE to NOT arrest and deport. Read that carefully again. He's telling ICE to not do their jobs, and ignore the law & court orders. His is ordering ICE to leave the illegals alone, even if there is already a deportation judgement. That's illegal and obstruction of justice. But don't worry, I'm sure William Barr and Nancy will protect him.

Oh, and the lead buried today is Trump also went from America First, to "Make Iran Great Again".

I'm off the Trump train. Obama deported more illegals than Trump. Yes, we were better off with the Kenyan Muslim. The only question left now is - Trump, buffoon or traitor.

Anonymous said...

^^^ So do you want the illegals deported or are you mad because he didn’t deport them and you couldn’t bitch about him deporting them?

I’m confused by you liberals, you don’t make any sense, never did, pick a lane and stay in it.

Trump is giving the democrats a chance to fix the issue is all. He is negotiating here. And that's what a true leader does. All he has to do is tell ICE it's game on if Nancy and her crew of misfits sit on their butts and do nothing.

7:41 thinks Ann Coulter is a liberal?

Well, you are right about being confused. Fucking morons posting here.

7:53 save us the Bullshit. This is Trump's MO. You know shit isn't going to happen because A)Mitchell owns the Senate and won't move shit and B)the Dems and Republicans had an agreement under Obama but it was killed by extremists in the Senate. So, what makes you think shit's gonna happen now. Dreamers have always been part of the Dem plan and if that's included anywhere in anything, Fox News will lose their shit and Trump will do whatever they say.

And Trump's idea of negotiating is basically, "give me what I want". The guy hasn't done one bipartisan thing since he's taken office. He was a shitty businessman and he's a shitty president. He's got his 40% base and that's about it, whether it's enough to get this clown re-elected is TBD.
