The anti-immigration saga is underway as President Donald Trump on Tuesday voiced his call for tougher and more effective laws instead what he calls “catch and release” regulations.
The remarks came during the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service, an event dedicated to honor fallen law enforcement officers.
Trump urged congressmen to fund his desired border wall with the Mexican border and to pass new measures against the so-called “sanctuary cities” in order to end what he called “catch and release” immigration laws.
“We don’t want it anymore. We’ve had it. Enough is enough,” Trump said.
He went on saying that current policies “release violent criminals back into our communities” which risk the lives of the U.S. police and border patrol officers.
“We must end the attacks on our police and we must end them right now,” the president said. “We believe criminals who kill our police should get the death penalty. Bring it forth.”
On Thursday, Trump slammed his country’s “weak” immigration laws, which he mentioned the illegal-immigrant criminals across the border, at a West Virginia event.
