Statement by Donald trump that the agents of U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is to arrest illegal immigrants “with the same speed with which those arrive in the country,” and as much as possible to expel them back, caused considerable political resonance.
So, the liberal Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested that the President proposes the establishment of concentration camps at the border, because the existing detention centres will not cope with the load. She recalled that the Nazis did the same against Jews and other “undesirables”, calling the Board trump’s “authoritarian and fascist.”
However, this statement provoked a rebuke from Liz Cheney, who is third in importance position in the faction of Republicans in the House of representatives, which stated that the Holocaust has resulted in the physical destruction of approximately 6 million Jews. “Drawing such Parallels, you demean their memory and disgrace himself,” she added.
Could not resist criticism from other Democrats, including presidential candidates, who believe that trump’s statement is only political in nature and is intended to rally his supporters.
The speaker of the house of representatives Nancy Pelosi accused the President of bias and intimidation of the population, and the former mayor of San Antonio Julian Castro of spreading “racist lies about immigrants.” In addition, Senator Kamala Harris stressed that the implementation of the plans for mass deportation of illegals would be a “stain” in the history of the country.
Yet the main problem is the influx of immigrants from Central America, fleeing poverty and violence by organized criminal groups.
The US authorities are not enough opportunities to accommodate these people who, in the words of trump, “carry out the invasion.” And since he published his point of view in a few hours after the statement about joining the campaign, it is possible that the struggle with the crisis on the border will become one of the main points of the program.
Assessment the Pew Research Center in the United States, residing 10.5 million illegal immigrants, and Congress and the White house never came to a joint decision about how to deal with these people.
But the situation is getting worse — only in may on the border with Mexico was arrested 144 thousand people, including 57 thousand minors that has a maximum of 13 years.
The white house wants lawmakers have allocated billions of dollars to fight the problem, but have not yet achieved understanding. “This is a humanitarian crisis of enormous proportions that needs to be resolved,” he urged in this regard the Democrats majority leader in the Senate Mitch McConnell.
For its part, the trump threatens political consequences, he said the possibility of the imposition of duties on goods from Mexico and the refusal of aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, if they do not take concrete measures to detention on its territory of immigrants bound for the United States.
The tightening measures as fears Jorge Lowry of the American Immigration Council, may lead to the fact that the split will be millions of families, but the problem will not disappear.
