ABC News reports:
President Donald Trump will hold a roundtable discussion on Long Island on illegal immigration and gang violence that the White House is calling a “national call to action for legislative policy changes.”
White House spokesman Hogan Gidley says the discussion with law enforcement and local leaders will focus on “immigration loopholes” that he said allows the violent MS-13 gang “to infiltrate our communities.” MS-13 has been blamed for some two dozen killings on Long Island the past two years.
The Associated Press reports:
President Donald Trump is attacking House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi over her criticism of his decision to publicly brand MS-13 gang members “animals” during a White House meeting on immigration last week.
Trump says: “Just the other day, Nancy Pelosi came out in favor of MS-13. She wants them to be treated with respect.” He was speaking at the Susan B. Anthony List’s annual Campaign for Life Gala. Pelosi did not endorse the gang, but took aim at Trump’s rhetoric, saying, “Calling people animals is not a good thing.”
