President Trump didn’t hold back while commented on the liberal “blue wave” predicted for this November, warning Democrats to reach an immigration deal with their GOP colleagues ahead of the election because they “are going to lose.”
The President urged Congressional leaders to come together on the issue of immigration after liberal legislators slammed multiple media reports of family separations following illegal border crossings, saying lawmakers need to come together to “work something out on Border Security & Safety.”
The Democrats should get together with their Republican counterparts and work something out on Border Security & Safety. Don’t wait until after the election because you are going to lose!

The President’s comments come just hours before Attorney General Jeff Sessions outlined the administration’s immigration policy Monday morning, saying he “hates” children being separated from their parents and urged lawmakers to change the pre-existing laws and build the wall.

BORDER CHAOS: National Guard Helps Border Patrol ARREST 1,600 More Migrants
Federal authorities and Border Patrol Agents have arrested an additional 1,600 illegal immigrants attempting to enter the United States since President Trump deployed the National Guard to the region just weeks ago.
According to new statistics released by the CBP and Pentagon officials, the troops were able to assist federal authorities in cracking down on illegal border crossings into the US; freeing up agents to focus on human and drug trafficking into the country.
“Those folks are giving us the additional situational awareness in the radio rooms … which are allowing the Border Patrol agents sitting in those areas to go into the field,” said one official.
“As a reminder, these guardsmen are not carrying out law enforcement duties,” he added.
President Trump made national headlines last month when he announced his decision to deploy the National Guard to the US-Mexico border; vowing to crackdown on illegal immigration until his signature border wall is permanently funded.
