The Mainstream Media continues to accuse Trump of racism and blanket statements, taking his words and twisting them to fit the hole of lies that they’ve dug themselves into. Their latest ordeal, saying that he has dehumanized and called all immigrants “animals.” The exact words the media has taken out of context are as follows:
“We have people coming into the country or trying to come in; we’re stopping a lot of them. But we’re taking people out of the country, a lot of them. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals and we’re taking them out of the country at a rate that’s never happened before.”
The media has taken this excerpt, without the previous context, as to show the viewers a response to a statement they didn’t even know was presented. As you can see in the video below, Sheriff Mims presents Trump with a fact regarding MS-13 gang members, and not being able to report them until they pass a certain threshold. “There could be an MS-13 gang member I know about – if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about them.” Mims says.
Trump finishes “Because of the weak laws, they come in fast. We get them, we release them. We get them again, we bring them out; and it’s crazy…. The dumbest laws on immigration in the world.”
Associated Press posted a video where he clarifies in a separate conference, the context of his remarks:
America has a serious immigration problem. It’s not ALL immigrants, like the MSM reports. The people of main concern, are the criminals, especially those in gangs or with gang relations. Like Trump has said, once these criminals are deported, they make their way back. It’s almost like the laws were made with expectations that criminals would follow them. Criminals by definition, don’t care for, or follow, laws. Perhaps this is why Trump says a wall is needed, since these criminals are easily making their way past the standing border precautions.
Perhaps harsher punishments, would solve this problem. Even if they were put in prison, they’d still cost a heavy toll on the taxpayer’s dollar. A simple solution would be for Mexico to do its part in locking these people up once they’re deported. Either way, we’ll have to see what Trump unravels, concerning his plans to fix these “weak laws.”
