Posted on 05/19/2018 1:50:42 AM PDT by John Semmens
This week President Trump again described members of the heinous immigrant gang MS-13 as "animals." His remarks came in response to a complaint that California law forbids local law enforcement officers from notifying ICE that MS-13 gang members are in custody in county jailsresulting in their release back into the community instead of their deportation. Two high-ranking Democrats assailed Trump's remarks.
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer characterized the President's words as "a slander against the kind of people who make our country great. Let's not forget that we are a nation of immigrants. If it weren't for the daring and arduous journeys undertaken by our parents, grandparents, and great grandparents this land would still be in the hands of tribes of savages. America is the land of opportunitya beacon of hope to the world. We must not let racial prejudice block entrepreneurial groups like MS-13 from seizing their opportunity to better their lives."
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi characterized the President's comments as "disrespectful. Every person is a child of God having a soul and a spark of divinity. It is not for us to judge them as Trump has done. As I understand it, almost all of the members of MS-13 are immigrants who came here as children escaping from horrible poverty and violence in the lands of their birth. For Trump to insist that we deport them back to those awful places is inhumane. They would have to rob and kill more people in poorer countries to achieve the same gains they can get from a lesser scope of depredation in America where each victim is likely to be far richer than victims in Guatemala, Honduras, or El Salvador. On pure headcount alone, Trump's policies would guarantee more bloodshed."
In related news, Cecile Richards, former President of Planned Parenthood, also denounced Trump calling MS-13 gang members "animals. These young men are people. According to American values they are entitled to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. To grab them off the street and deport them simply because they are in this country illegally or have engaged in criminal activity is morally wrong."

These people are disgusting. Some types of people must be dealt with.
You called them heinous, you animal.
Sara Sanders Huckabee said it all.
If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, theyre more than welcome to, said Sanders. Frankly I dont think the term that the president used was strong enough.
She then described some of the heinous acts the gang has executed:
It took an animal to stab a man a hundred times and decapitate him and rip his heart out. It took an animal to beat a woman they were sex trafficking with a bat 28 times, indenting part of her body. And it took an animal to kidnap, drug, and rape a 14-year old Houston girl.
Frankly, I think that the term animal doesnt go far enough.
And I think that the president should continue to use his platform and everything he can do under the law to stop these types of horrible, horrible, disgusting people.
Schumer acts as tho MS-13 is just a bunch of choir boys letting off a little steam during summer vacation.
He needs to see up close & person what they do.
To grab them off the street and deport them simply because they are in this country illegally or have engaged in criminal activity is morally wrong."
LOL - totally believable...
Out of the Park, John. Great piece. Interesting view into the reflection pool.
