As further evidence of his criminal mentality, tRump blatantly ordered immigration officials to ignore the law, to violate the law. If that is not grounds for impeachment, along with attempted obstruction of justice and campaign finance crimes, I don’t know what is. This guy is dangerous to our nation! DANGEROUS!
Last Friday, the President visited Calexico, California, where he said, “We’re full, our system’s full, our country’s full — can’t come in! Our country is full, what can you do? We can’t handle any more, our country is full. Can’t come in, I’m sorry. It’s very simple.”
Behind the scenes, two sources told CNN, the President told border agents to not let migrants in. Tell them we don’t have the capacity, he said. If judges give you trouble, say, “Sorry, judge, I can’t do it. We don’t have the room.”
After the President left the room, agents sought further advice from their leaders, who told them they were not giving them that direction and if they did what the President said they would take on personal liability. You have to follow the law, they were told.
If Trump is telling rank and file CBP Agents to ignore the laws, then no doubt Mr Trump was telling Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to ignore the law. Her refusal to comply probably accounts for her removal as DHS Secretary.
Mr Trump took an oath to uphold the law. Telling members of his Administration to break the law would seem to be an impeachable offence.
Last week Trump remarked “to be honest with you, we have to get rid of judges.”. He seems to think he is an autocrat, much like his role model Putin.
Trump’s disregard for upholding the law should be ringing alarm bells on both sides of the isle.
