Trump slams Senate Democrats over ‘weakness’ on border
- by admin
President Donald Trump slammed Senate Democrats on Monday for failing to pass a bipartisan border security bill despite the fact that he’s expected to sign it.
“We will never, ever let them get away with their weakness,” Trump said in a statement.
The Senate approved the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act (BSAIGMA) by a vote of 58 to 37, and Trump signed the bill into law in mid-March.
The legislation passed with overwhelming support from the House, with nearly all Democrats voting in favor of the bill and most Republicans voting against it.
Trump said the bill is a “big step forward” in the fight against illegal immigration, which he said is a major threat to the United States.
Trump’s remarks came a day after the Senate passed a similar border security package.
Trump was scheduled to hold a joint press conference with House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R/KY) on Monday.
