Trump Defends 'Animals' Remark, Saying It Referred to MS-13 Gang Members

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) scolded Trump for denying the "spark of divinity" in each person over his comments that MS-13 gang members were not people but "animals". "These aren't people, these are animals, and we're taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that's never happened before". "So I'm actually surprised that you're asking this question 'cause most people got it right", he said. These aren't people. These are animals.

"We can eliminate MS-13 and root out the criminal cartels from our country", Trump said. "And then to think about collective action we could take to mitigate these conditions".

And she says that, "if the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, they're more than welcome to". The singer explained that "some innocent children grow up to be gang members.do you dispute this obvious fact?" We're stopping a lot of them.

In a 2017 letter to U.S. Attorney General and former Department of Homeland Security John Kelly, California Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye expressed concern over reports that ICE agents are "stalking undocumented immigrants in our courthouses to make arrests" and asked immigration officials to keep enforcement tactics out of state courts. "And if you look a little bit further on in the tape, you'll see that", Trump told reporters.

"Sanders was responding to the fury raised by Trump's comments during an immigration roundtable at the White House on Wednesday". "I think that the president should continue to use his platform and anything he can do to stop these kinds of horrible, horrible, disgusting people".

But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended the president's comments, arguing the word "animals" didn't go far enough.

The "animals" flap was the latest instance in which harsh language by Mr. Trump on immigration caused controversy, and in which he focused on unsafe criminals who entered the country illegally as an argument for cracking down at the border.

"These aren't people", Trump said. Trump said he wanted people to come into the United States legally and on merit basis.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has twice cancelled plans to visit Washington over Trump's ongoing insistence that Mexico pay for the wall.

He vented about the nation's immigration laws, calling them "the dumbest laws on immigration in the world".

The Trump administration has sued to reverse the so-called "sanctuary" legislation.

Brown responded on Twitter, writing that Trump "is lying on immigration, lying about crime and lying about the laws of CA".
