BORDER/DEMS/IMMIGRATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “U.S. Democratic lawmakers on Friday [7-19-19] called President Donald Trump’s latest anti-immigration initiatives ‘unacceptable’ and warned his administration against misappropriating funding authorized only for humanitarian use. The criticism came as two congressional delegations toured the U.S.-Mexico border area near McAllen, Texas, as part of efforts to oversee policies banning nearly all asylum-seekers from entry, warehousing detainees in crowded quarters and holding children separately from the adults they traveled with…While Democrats have denounced Trump for precipitating what they consider a humanitarian crisis, the president’s supporters have applauded him for cracking down on illegal immigration along the 2,000-mile (3,000-km) border. Immigration, one of Trump’s signature issues in the 2016 presidential campaign, is already shaping up as a central issue in November 2020.”
