Did Trump just call illegal immigrants 'animals'?

"Each of you has bravely resisted California's deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws", Trump said at the White House.

Mainstream US media was quick to condemn the president's remarks as bigotry and racism, and a dehumanization technique aimed at any and all immigrants from Latin America who enter the US illegally across the border with Mexico.

"These aren't people", Trump emphasized dramatically, "these are animals".

President Trump plans to throw more barbs at California on Wednesday afternoon, joined this time at the White House by like-minded officials brought from the state he loves to lambaste as lawless and "out of control".

Trump's detractors took the comments to apply to all illegal immigrants, even though the context appeared to be in respect to illegal alien gang members. It's insane. The dumbest laws, as I said before, the dumbest laws on immigration in the world.

Addressing law enforcement officers at a conference in Arizona on 7 May, Sessions said that separating families at the border was an effective way to discourage illegal immigration. So we're gonna take care of it Margaret, we'll get it done.

In a meeting with California leaders who oppose their state's sanctuary city laws, the president accused the state of providing 'safe harbor to some of the most vicious and violent offenders on earth'.

"There can be an MS-13 gang member, if they don't reach a certain threshold, I can't tell [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] about them", she added. "Part of the problem that we have is our economy is so strong that people are pouring up to get into our economy".

"My constituents-and those are Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike-they don't want to see another Kate Steinle-that's what I hear every single week", said Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez. We want people to come into our country based on merit. "So we need to work on immigration reform all out", said Mims. California Democratic lawmakers have vowed to push back and are hoping his unpopularity in the state will help in their effort to win control of Congress. Chrysler is opening up now in MI.

"This narrative that sanctuary cities will allow more immigrant people to report more crime is fake news, Mr. President", he said.

In mid-April, Brown deployed "up to 400" members of the National Guard "to combat" criminal activity within the state and at the U.S. -Mexico border. He exhorted his administration to "do much better" in keeping out undesirable people, including members of transnational gangs like MS-13. Trump has made securing the southern border a focal point of his presidency, with plans to beef up border security and create a wall as key components.
