President Barack Obama’s “executive amnesty … wiped away the immigration rules written by Congress, giving work permits and entitlement benefits to people illegally in the country,” Trump said in the statement.Donald Trump celebrated Thursday’s Supreme Court deadlock that blocks President Barack Obama’s immigration executive actions, remarking in a statement that the 4-4 ruling “has blocked one of the most unconstitutional actions ever undertaken by a president.”
But only “for now,” the presumptive Republican nominee tweeted, accusing Clinton of supporting open borders that “are tearing American families apart.”
With the tie, justices left in place a lower-court order prohibiting Obama from launching his plan to grant “deferred action” to undocumented immigrants who have children who are U.S. citizens or green card holders. Trump said that decision “makes clear what is at stake in November” in the election against Hillary Clinton.
“The election, and the Supreme Court appointments that come with it will decide whether or not we have a border and, hence, a country,” Trump said in a statement released through his campaign. “Clinton has pledged to expand Obama’s executive amnesty, hurting poor African-American and Hispanic workers by giving away their jobs and federal resources to illegal immigrant labor — while making us all less safe. It is time to protect our country and Make America Safe Again and Great Again for everyone.”
Donald Trump also accused Hillary Clinton for following and fulfilling Barack Obama’s wishes!
Obama’s “executive amnesty … wiped away the immigration rules written by Congress, giving work permits and entitlement benefits to people illegally in the country,” Trump said in the statement.
In a later tweet, Trump wrote, “Obama & Clinton should stop meeting with special interests, & start meeting with the victims of illegal immigration.”
