GOP Rep: Immigrants Know Trump Is Serious About Border

GOP Rep: Immigrants Know Trump Is Serious About Border

President Donald Trump accused Democrats of abandoning Israel and claimed that asylum seekers look like UFC fighters during his speech Saturday before the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas.

Jewish voters in the US have traditionally sided heavily with Democrats - and are often ideologically liberal - but Republicans are hoping to narrow the gap next year, in part as Trump cites actions that he says demonstrate support for Israel.

Nielsen, who says she's staying on until Wednesday, is the latest person felled in the Trump administration's unprecedented churn of top staff and Cabinet officials, brought about by the president's mercurial management style, insistence on blind loyalty and rash policy announcements. Oh, no she doesn't like Israel, does she. No, she doesn't like Israel, does she?

Trump has moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv and recognized Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Patrick W. Carlineo, the NY man charged with threatening to kill Rep. Omar, asked one of her staff members if she works "for the Muslim Brotherhood", according to a criminal complaint released Saturday by federal prosecutors in the Western District of NY. Trump was slow to condemn white supremacists who marched violently in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017.

The American Civil Liberties Union, one of the groups that filed the lawsuit, hailed the ruling as a "very important decision" on an "unpredecented" attempt to block asylum seekers from setting foot on US soil.

Nielsen had grown increasingly frustrated by what she saw as a lack of support from other departments and increased meddling by Trump aides on hard immigration issues, according to three people familiar with details of her resignation.

"I would like to see peace in the Middle East", Trump said. Trump asked rhetorically before being reminded that the Jewish Republicans in the audience, including mega-donor Adelson, were among those what didn't back the former president.

Trump also acknowledged that he relies on his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and David Friedman, the US ambassador to Israel, to help guide him on issues pertinent to Israel.

Before the USA president's appearance, people gathered for the event, carrying signs reading "We are Jews for Trump" and "Trump" written in Hebrew.

The visit is expected to coincide with the 75th anniversary of D-Day, when President Trump plans to attend an event in France to honour the liberation of the country by allied forces during the Second World War. Several attendees were wearing red yarmulkes bearing "Trump" and "RJC".

The Trump administration is apparently trying to appeal to Jewish voters, who traditionally support the Democratic Party.

The lawsuit on behalf of 11 asylum seekers from Central America and legal advocacy groups says the Trump administration is violating USA law by failing to adequately evaluate the dangers that migrants face in Mexico.

Weil, who wore a blue Trump-style hat that read, "Making Israel & America Great Again", says he's a Republican because of the party's strong stance on Israel. But at one point, he told the crowd that he "stood with your prime minister at the White House".
