President Trump Invites Democrats To White House To Discuss Immigration

Just one day after signing an executive order to keep families together at the border, President Trump sounded off on immigration.
During a cabinet meeting at the White House Thursday, the president said the only solution is for Congress to pass permanent legislation.
He said lawmakers from both sides of the aisle must come together to come up with a solution, and proceeded to invite Democrats to the White House to discuss immigration.
The president doubled down on blaming — what he calls — ‘obstructionist Democrats’ for the current crisis at the border.

“Alone nearly 200,000 unaccompanied alien minors have been released into the United States as a result of Democrat backed loopholes including catch and release, which is one of the worst,” stated President Trump. “You catch them and then you release them, might as well save you time, don’t bother catching them, and this is what we’re stuck with — one of the worst immigration laws in the history of the world, the whole world is laughing at the United States and they have been for years.”
The president also discussed his wife’s trip Texas, where she visited a child immigrant detention center.
He said the First Lady was “really bothered” by images of children being separated from their parents.
During the cabinet meeting, the president also touted the success of the economy and progress being made with North Korea.
