Donald Trump tells Democrat congresswomen to ‘go back’ to where they came from
Donald Trump told a group of Democrat congresswomen to “go back” to the places they came from as his administration launched a nationwide crackdown on illegal immigration.
The US president launched a Twitter tirade against the congresswomen, who have been highly critical of his immigration policies, telling them: “You can’t leave fast enough.”
They planned to arrest at least 2,100 illegal immigrants, including families, who are on so-called “rocket dockets,” which means they have already been sent court orders telling them to leave the country.
An estimated 11 million illegal immigrants are currently in the United States, one million of whom have been sent final removal orders. The 2,000, mostly from Central America, are among those one million.
On Twitter, Mr Trump addressed “‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen,” which appeared to be a reference to a group of outspoken, liberal, recently elected women, who have become known as “the squad.”
Mr Trump said: “So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly.
