Senator Kamala Harris slammed the Trump administration for “politicizing” illegal immigration Friday; saying the President was “vilifying” migrants as part of his 2020 re-election strategy.
“Millions of people will enter this weekend filled with fear. Children who are U.S. citizens will wonder if their mothers will be ripped from home in the pre-dawn hours before church on Sunday. And why? So Trump can vilify immigrants as part of a political campaign. It’s shameful,” posted Harris on social media.

Illegal immigration is ranked among the top political issues for Americans heading into the general election.
Vermont Senator and far-left presidential candidate Bernie Sanders confirmed this week that his socialized health care proposal will “absolutely” provide coverage to every single illegal immigrant in the United States.
“We will organize the American people around the concept that all people in this country have the right to health care, and at the end of the day, we are going to win that struggle,” said Sanders during a recent speech.
“Senator, would you include the 11 million undocumented immigrants in America?” asked the moderator.
“Absolutely. When I talk about health care being a human right, the last time I heard that undocumented people are human beings,” he fired-back.
Bernie Sanders’ campaign released a new Democratic Socialist ‘Economic Bill of Rights’ weeks ago; saying all Americans should be provided with healthcare, education, a ‘good job,’ housing, secure retirement, and more.
“We need a 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights:
– The right to health care
– The right to education
– The right to a good job
– The right to affordable housing
– The right to a secure retirement
– The right to a clean environment#DemocraticSocialism,” posted Josh Miller-Lewis, Sanders’ Digital Communications Director.
BORDER CHAOS: 500 Pounds of Mexican METH Discovered in 'DISNEY' Figurines
The Drug Enforcement Agency discovered over $2 million worth of smuggled Mexican methamphetamines hidden inside Disney character figurines Wednesday; calling the haul the biggest “meth bust” in the Atlanta region.
According to DEA officials, the drugs were hidden inside over 500 figurines meant to look like beloved Disney characters such as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.
“DEA Atlanta Division Special Agent in Charge Robert Murphy says the meth originated in Mexico and was destined for Atlanta,” writes a local CBS affiliate. “He says another load containing legitimate ceramic figurines was intercepted and is believed to have been intended as a decoy.”
The discovery comes as President Trump pledges to crackdown on human trafficking and drug smuggling at the United States’ southern border; vowing last week to deploy the National Guard to help secure the region.
BORDER CHAOS: 55 Immigrants Discovered in a Single Tractor-Trailer in TEXAS
Nearly 60 individuals -including children- were discovered in San Antonio, Texas late Tuesday evening crammed into a single tractor-trailer; raising serious questions over how the immigrants were able to successfully cross the US-Mexico border.
According to MySanAntonio News, authorities from multiple federal and local agencies descended on the south Texas town Tuesday night after the trailer was discovered in a quiet residential neighborhood.
“KSAT-TV reports that authorities from several agencies were called to a North Side neighborhood around 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday and found 55 people suspected of entering the country illegally in and around a tractor-trailer,” writes MySA.
“This truck was air-conditioned, thank God. This truck had water. So they were hydrated,” said San Antonio Fire Department Chief Charles Hood, adding that at least five immigrants were rushed to a nearby hospital.
