Skip to comments.Bernie Sanders: Trump administration ‘heartless’ toward immigrants
Posted on 05/13/2018 10:35:26 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday said President Donald Trump and his administration are heartless toward immigrants.
"I think it is heartless. I think the entire Trump views on immigration is heartless," Sanders said in an interview on CNNs State of the Union.
. Last week, chief of staff John Kelly told NPR that the laws are the laws and that the technique of separating families who cross the border illegally is one that no one hopes will be used extensively or for very long. Kelly also said during the interview that undocumented immigrants coming to the U.S. don't integrate well and don't have skills.
Since the start of his presidential campaign, Trump has called for a border wall to be built along the U.S.-Mexico border. In addition, he has labeled some Mexicans as rapists and killers, as well as referred to some of the nations where many immigrants come from as shithole countries.
Sanders said in the latest polls he has seen, nearly 80 percent of Americans believe the 1.8 million people in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program should be provided legal status....

Thanks for sharing Bernie. Back you go into your hole.
firs of all they are illegals, not immigrants- to be an immigrant means going through the process of citizenship- Trump is cracking down on illegals, not immigrants
Secondly- illegals are murdering raping and costing this country plenty:
Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants
In recent Testimony of District Attorney John M. Morganelli before the House Subcommittee on immigration, Border, Security and Claims he stated:
Unfortunately, the majority of illegal aliens who are here are engaged in criminal activity. Identity theft, use of fraudulent social security numbers and green cards, tax evasion, driving without licenses represent some of the crimes that are engaged in by the majority of illegal aliens on a daily basis merely to maintain and hide their illegal status.
In addition, violent crime and drug distribution and possession is also prevalent among illegal aliens. Over 25% of todays federal prison population are illegal aliens. In some areas of the country, 12% of felonies, 25% of burglaries and 34% of thefts are committed by illegal aliens.
In Los Angeles, 95% of some 1,500 outstanding warrants for homicides are for illegal aliens. About 67% of the 17,000 outstanding fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.
There are currently over 400,000 unaccounted for illegal alien criminals with outstanding deportation orders. At least one fourth of these are hard core criminals.
80,000 to 100,000 illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes are walking the streets. Based on studies they will commit an average of 13 serious crimes per perpetrator.
Illegal aliens are involved in criminal activities at a rate that is 2-5 times their representative proportion of the population.
In 1980, our Federal and state facilities held fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens but at the end of 2003, approximately 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in U.S. correctional facilities at a cost of about $6.8 billion per year.
At least 4.5 million pounds of cocaine with a street value of at least $72 billion is smuggled across the southern border every year. ..
56% of illegal aliens charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted on at least 5 prior occasions.
Illegal aliens charged with unlawful reentry had the most extensive criminal histories. 90% had been previously arrested. Of those with a prior arrest, 50% had been arrested for violent or drug-related felonies.
Illegal aliens commit between 700,000 to 1,289,000 or more crimes per year.
Illegal aliens commit at least 2,158 murders each year a number that represents three times greater participation than their proportion of the population.
Illegal alien sexual predators commit an estimated 130,909 sexual crimes each year.
There may be as many as 240,000 illegal alien sex offenders circulating throughout America. Based on studies, they will commit an average of 8 sex crimes per perpetrator before being caught.
Nearly 63% of illegal alien sex offenders had been deported on another offense prior to committing the sex crime.
Only 2% of the illegal alien sex offenders in one study had no history of criminal behavior, beyond crossing the border illegally.
In Operation Predator, ICE arrested and deported 6,085 illegal alien pedophiles. Some studies suggest each pedophile molests average of 148 children. If so, that could be as many as 900,580 victims.
Nobody knows how big the Sex Slave problem is but it is enormous.
The very brutal MS-13 gang has over 15,000 members and associates in at least 115 different cliques in 33 states.
The overall financial impact of illegal alien crimes is estimated at between $14.4 and $81 billion or more per year. Factor in the crime as a result of the cocaine and other drugs being smuggled in and the number may reach $150 billion per year.
Where does Rubio come off berating Trump for citing FACTS?
[[Congressman Steve King (R-IA) estimates that illegal alien drunk drivers kill 13 Americans every day thats a death toll of 4,745 per year.
The 23 percent criminal traffic offenders figure is only part of the overall picture. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, another 23 percent, more than 43,000 illegal aliens, were convicted of drug offenses. The violent crime category of assault, robbery, sexual assault, and family offenses comes to 12 percent. The non-violent crime grouping of larceny, fraud, and burglary totaled seven percent, and on the list goes equaling 100 percent of illegal aliens who have been through the criminal justice system and inflicted thousands to millions in cost per alien on the system, for issues having nothing to do with their illegal entry into the country]]
My mother was a legal immigrant before she became a citizen. She voted for Trump in 2016. Now what I owe Bernie for insulting my mother cannot be uttered, or even put into action.
It’s an invasion. It’s the government’s job to repel invasions.
If anything, they need to be even more “heartless.”
Why liberals love criminals.
Yep - no one who knowingly breaks our laws deserves “heart.” They do not care about us - why should we care about them? If Crazy Bernie wants to call that heartless, he needs to resign, because he is not upholding the Constitution as he swore he would. (Not going to happen...)
Does Bernie Sanders know the difference between legal immigrants and illegal immigrants? Or are they all one and the same to that crazy old man?
Bernie has never had a real job. He just knows that people like free stuff.
If he’s not allowing the undocumented to live rent free in his buildings he should be reported and the buildings sized by the state.
Just illegal immigrates Burn big difference
Which means Trump has a big heart for the rest of us, a concept Sanders can't grasp.
In case you are having trouble making the connection, look at France and the latest throat cuttings of innocent people going about their business.
Take any and every that are apprehended at the border and place them in:
Burlington, Stratton, Stowe, Manchester, Killington, Middlebury, Montpelier, and every other quaint, picturesque town and village in the great state of Vermont.
You know the ones that look like Christmas postcards, filled with antique stores and RICH, WHITE, RETIREES from NY and elsewhere.
I’m sure the new citizens of Mexico and points south, will like it. Lots of meths and pill heads to sell their drugs to. Cops not really being used to that kind of crime so they spend an inordinate amount of time playing catchup and trying to find cops that speak Spanish.
It’ll be great.
Didnt Bernie take an oath to uphold the Constitution?
And almost all deportee’s will reenter.
BUILD the Wall Now!
So where do immigrants go after they have fouled our nest?
Language games are played by people who do not want an honest discussion.
Bernie knows perfectly well that “immigrants” are not the issue. But he chooses his words carefully because he’s pushing a destructive anti-Western, pro-Marxist viewpoint. Using accurate terms would get in the way of that. So he cheats.
Kate Steinle was shot to death by an illegal alien as she strolled with her father at San Francisco's picturesque Embarcadero.
"Her killer was Jose Garcia Zarate an illegal alien who had been previously deported to Mexico five times, and who had a criminal record that included seven felony convictions." See article.
They’re not immigrants.
The Bern should sneak into Mexico and show us how it’s done.
It’s our country.
We have a right to keep it.
