Trump Calls Migrants ‘Criminals’ As Women And Children Are Tear Gassed At The Border


President Donald Trump ramped up the border crisis on Sunday by letting border patrol agents fire tear gas into crowds of women and children seeking asylum, only to refer to the migrants as “criminals” in a heartless tweet Monday morning.

In a violation of the Geneva Convention and human rights, Trump denied asylum to migrants at ports of entry and had them tear gassed. This comes as he continues to take children away from their parents to lock them in cages in internment camps, which is a crime against humanity.

Images and video or the harrowing ordeal these women and children are going through at the border just to seek peace and safety are heartbreaking.

But Trump does not care, which is why he labeled them as “stone cold criminals” and once again threatened to shut down the border while demanding Congress fund his useless border wall.

Of course, closing the border will hurt Americans, too.

As USA Today reports:

The U.S. State Department estimates that $1.7 billion in goods and services, and hundreds of thousands of people, legally cross the border each day. The U.S. gets nearly half (44 percent) of its fresh fruits and vegetables from Mexico, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

So, Trump could close the border, but Americans would have a whole lot fewer fruits and vegetables on the dinner table as thousands of jobs are placed in peril.

But Americans should be angrier about the human rights violations Trump is committing, not to mention his violation of U.S. law by blocking migrants from seeking asylum at legal ports of entry.

Many of them expressed that anger on Twitter.
