Donald Trump: Current catch and release immigration policy is ‘ridiculous’

Bailey Vogt The Washington TimesMay 17, 2019

President Trump on Friday called the catch and release immigration policy “ridiculous” and the border issue a “National Emergency.”

“The Democrats now realize that there is a National Emergency at the Border and that, if we work together, it can be immediately fixed. We need Democrat votes and all will be well,” the president tweeted.

“Border Patrol is apprehending record numbers of people at the Southern Border. The bad ‘hombres,’ of which there are many, are being detained will be sent home. Those which we release under the ridiculous Catch Telease [sic] loophole, are being registered and will be removed later,” he said.
