After the death of NFL player, Edwin Jackson, who was the linebacker for Indianapolis Colts, President Trump has urged a crackdown on illegal immigration. The man accused of killing Jackson was an undocumented immigrant and is suspected to be driving under influence at the time of the accident.
The President tweeted out, “So disgraceful that a person illegally in our country killed @Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson.” Adding that, “This is just one of many such preventable tragedies. We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration, FAST!”
The president has pushed his plan to build The Wall at the Southern border, in order to prevent illegal migration into the country, but is facing resistance by the Democratic Party. Trump has gone to extreme lengths to protect the citizens of the United States and his plans have remained unfruitful due to the opposition party. President Donald Trump said to officials of the law enforcement and members of the White House Congress “We’ll do a shutdown and it’s worth it for our country. I’d love to see a shutdown if we don’t get this stuff taken care of.”
“If we have to shut it down because the Democrats don’t want safety and, unrelated but still related, they don’t want to take care of our military, then shut it down,” the president added. “We’ll go with another shutdown.”
The President seized a similar case during his presidential campaign in 2016, when a woman was shot and killed by an undocumented immigrant in the year 2015.
The President has shown his frustration over the refusal of Democratic Party on the sweeping immigration plan. The proposal is in the best interest of the country, as it grants citizenship to approximately 1.8 million immigrants who are living in the country as illegal citizens. This proposal would be, in return, for an agreement on the wall project on the southern border as well as to limit legal immigration to the country.
His other twitter post said, “The Kate Steinle killer came back and back over the weakly protected Obama border, always committing crimes and being violent, and yet this info was not used in court. His exoneration is a complete travesty of justice. BUILD THE WALL!”
