As Mexico fumes, Trump says he alluded to only criminals as 'animals'

Writing for the Miami Herald, Fabiola Santiago said Trump's comment was "a calibrated move to stoke anti-immigrant furor in a midterm election year" and an example of "hate speech" against "people seeking refuge".

Trump announced his presidential candidacy by calling Mexican immigrants "rapists" and has tried to ban immigrants from majority Muslim nations, and his administration has consistently pursued harsh policies against migrants who are unlikely to be white.

These comments were in response to the discussion about MS-13 gang members trying to enter the US illegally.

White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway slammed those critical of President Trump's use of the term "animals" to describe MS-13 gang members Thursday, saying politicians who "rushed to judgment" owe Trump and gang violence victims "an apology".

Mexico's foreign ministry sent a formal diplomatic letter to the US State Department complaining that Trump's remarks were "absolutely unacceptable".

"These aren't people, these are animals", she repeatedly solemnly.

Trump said on Thursday he was referring to violent gang members when he made his remark, and that he'd continue using similar rhetoric when describing such individuals. MS-13 has done heinous acts.

The comment came when a California sheriff noted her county is unable to notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement when an MS-13 gang member is jailed for a minor crime. This one, though, might be less about the President Donald Trump's words or deeds and more about our collective assumption that when in doubt, he has done or said something wrong.

The PFSC consists of elected representatives of the four main stakeholder groups involved in European professional football. One club would also come from the host country with the last side from either South America or Oceania.

"The term "animal" doesn't go far enough", she said.

He added,"When the MS-13 comes in, when the other gang members come into our country, I refer to them as animals".

Brown insists the legislation, which took effect Jan 1, doesn't prevent federal immigration officials from doing their jobs. Trump blamed the influx of illegal immigrants in the USA on the country's "dumbest laws". And Trump has held numerous events in recent months during which he's drawn attention to California's policies.

The news media knows this, of course, but it would rather spend its time and resources trying to destroy the president than report what's happening in the world or discuss real issues-like, you know, out-of-control gangs that rape and murder people.

"Trump is lying on immigration, lying about crime and lying about the laws of California".

The round table took place exactly one week after Mr. Trump used a closed-door cabinet meeting to castigate Kirstjen Nielsen, the secretary of homeland security, for failing to do enough to crack down at the border.

But no law "the Democrats gave us" mandates the separation of children from their parents at the border.
