President Trump Holds Emotional Meeting Ahead of Votes on Two Important Laws..

Tomorrow, the House will vote on the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, which will cut federal grant money to cities that shield dangerous criminal aliens from being turned over to federal law enforcement. The House will also vote on Kate’s Law – named for Kate Steinle, who was killed by an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times. This law will enhance criminal penalties for those who repeatedly re-enter the country illegally.

Today, ahead of tomorrow”s vote, President Trump met again with families of victims impacted by the crimes committed by illegal aliens, thanked them for their courage and presented their stories for all to hear.    The passage these laws, and the enforcement of America’s border security, represents well-known campaign promises.

[Transcript] – 3:07 P.M. EDT – THE PRESIDENT: Good to have you all. Hello, Chairman. Great man, right here. Might be another one right there. We have some good ones. We had a wonderful meeting on healthcare, yesterday, you probably know about, and so we’re moving along. Hello, Thomas.

Thank you very much for being here to discuss two crucial votes taking place in Congress tomorrow on vital safety and national security legislation.

We’re joined by the Chairman of the House Judiciary, Bob Goodlatte, a friend of mine for a long time. Bob is one of the most skilled legislators in Congress — and you didn’t even tell me to say that, Bob, right — (laughter) — and he’s worked with law enforcement to write a series of critical immigration bills that will close the dangerous loopholes exploited by criminals, gang members, drug dealers, killers, terrorists.

MS-13 is a prime target. They are bad people. And we’ve gotten many of them out already. You know, we’re pretty much at the 50 percent mark. We’re getting them out as fast as we can get them out, and we’re freeing up towns. We’re actually liberating towns, if you can believe that we have to do that in the United States of America. But we’re doing it, and we’re doing it fast.

Also with us today are Congressman Peter King, another friend. Lou Barletta — where’s Lou? Lou, another friend. So you’re running for governor, Lou? Look behind you, Lou. You can make a big announcement — (laughter.) Lou Barletta, an early supporter. Thank you, Lou. And David Young.

Tomorrow, the House will vote on the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act. It’s been in the works for a long time. People have wanted it, Bob, for a long time. But we were able to get this process going, and I hope you’re going to be successful. You’ll be successful, tomorrow, with the vote?

REPRESENTATIVE GOODLATTE: We will.

THE PRESIDENT: Good — which will cut federal grant money to cities that shield dangerous criminal aliens from being turned over to federal law enforcement.

The House will also vote on Kate’s Law, named for Kate Steinle, who was killed by an illegal immigrant and who’s been deported five times. This law will enhance criminal penalties for those who repeatedly reenter the country illegally.

Countless innocent Americans, including the loved ones of many families in the room — and many of these families are friends of mine — great friends of mine that I got to know over the campaign trail because they fought so hard for this. And they are with us. They’ve had members of their family killed by illegal immigrants and, really, people with multiple — in some cases, multiple deportations.

I’m especially honored to be here with so many courageous families whom I did get to know so well over the past period of time. You know, here’s one right over here. Jamiel — a great, great man with a great son — great son, great family.

You lost the people that you love because our government refused to enforce our nation’s immigration laws. And that’s even the existing immigration laws, without new laws. That’s existing immigration laws.

For years, the pundits, journalists, politicians in Washington refused to hear your voices, but on Election Day, 2016, your voices were heard all across the entire world. Right? You better believe it. Nobody died in vain, I can tell you.

Chairman Goodlatte has produced a package of truly key immigration enforcement bills. We’ve been waiting for these for a long time, and I want to thank you, Chairman, for doing that. Great job. And it’s just perfect.

This package includes the Davis-Oliver Act, whose passage I called for nearly a year ago at my inauguration speech and immigration speech — both — the immigration speech taking place in Phoenix, Arizona. The Davis-Oliver Act was named for Detective Michael Davis and Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver, who were gunned down in the line of duty by an illegal immigrant with a criminal record and two prior deportations. And everybody knew this person was big, big trouble, and they begged law enforcement to get him out. And they were unable to do that.

Their incredibly brave widows honored — and they’re here with us, by the way — we’re honoring them today. And it’s honored — where are you please? The widow — where is — they’re here someplace. In the back of the room? Thank you, everybody. Thank you.

We’re privileged to be joined by Melissa. Melissa —

MS. OLIVER: Right here.

THE PRESIDENT: That’s what I thought. Hello, Melissa. (Laughter.) Melissa Oliver. And I just want to say that your father was a true hero — and you know that — and a great gentleman, and we miss him. You miss him. We miss him.

We’re calling on all members of Congress to honor grieving American families by passing these lifesaving measures in the House, in the Senate, and then sending them to my desk for a very rapid signature. I promise you, it will be done quickly. You don’t have to wait the mandatory period. It will be very quick, Melissa, in honor of your father and others, okay? And in honor of Jamiel.

MR. SHAW: Thank you.

THE PRESIDENT: It’s time to support our police, to protect our families, and to save American lives. And also to start getting smart.

So with that, I’d like to ask each of the families invited, and some of the folks that I know that — and some I’ve gotten to know so well. I’d like to start with Jamiel, to tell just a quick story about how great your son was, perhaps what happened, so that other people can learn by it. I mean, your son was an incredible young man, incredible student and athlete. Tell us about your son, Jamiel.

END – 3:14 P.M. EDT

        1st time entering our nation is a misdemeanor, any entry past that is a felony. But, enforcing the laws on the books doesn’t fit the globalist bankster plan and our psycho-political anti-American “representatives” don’t work for us. They work for said globalist banksters.

      Words can’t describe the cold anger I feel right now! To hear those two women thank God for allowing us to have Donald J Trump as the President of the US so that their kids lives are not forgotten, has me ready to do anything that my President asks of me. That woman was going to kill herself but decided against it because she happened to have the tv on at the precise moment to hear our President talk about these illegal aliens and what they are doing to everyday Americans could have only occurred because of God who wanted her to know she has a purpose to live!

      Watching Lou Dobbs show tonight, he said that the Senate will not put the 2 bills up for vote because they are dead on arrival. If that were to happen, Mitch McConnell deserves to die and slow and gruesome death!

        We absolutely agree. That silly woman Susan Collins doesn’t get me enraged. Stuff like this makes me rabid. Especially cases like Jamiel Shaw where Los Angeles city and county and the state of California systematically and institutionally repress American citizens in order to circumvent the law.

        People die because of this. Just because it doesn’t happen right in your face doesn’t mean it won’t. I personally have seen murdered people from criminal alien gangs. It is something I cannot “un-see”. Ever. These are brutal and extremely violent people. Count my lucky stars for President Trump I hope I never have to see this stuff again.

Imagine being President Trump and knowing that you are surrounded by scum like he is and in the position of forced to deal with them… I don’t know how he does it, nor how he ever finds anything nice to say about them.

        They will continue to undermine him and work against him too and WE need to ensure all hell is let loose on them, now, next week, 2018… and as long as is necessary to return our nation to constitutional standards. We KNOW who and what they are… it’s far past time we did our duty to ourselves and our progeny!

There has to be a way. God bless President Trump what he has to deal with: he has the ideas, he has the will, he is trying every day for each and every one of us and what does he get? Lying back stabbing Ryan, McCain create more problems with Syria, McConnell who can’t get a decent bill together, I could go on, but we have all heard it before. Now these so called representatives of the people -their first priority is the safety of it’s citizens and if this does not come up for a vote, after hearing these stories (and we all know there are many, many more out there) then something needs to be done about them.

            They are NOT doing their jobs! I am sorry but there has to be another way for the people’s voices to be heard other than waiting for the next election, there must be a way for the Senators and Congressman to either pay or be punished for not doing their job! This has gone on for way, way too long!

      Jamiel Shaw’s story is sad because it happened in Los Angeles area. The press besmirched Jamiel’s memory by saying he was involved in gangs because the black community was upset that he was murdered by an illegal. None of the stories the press put out were true, but they followed the agenda from the Mayor’s office.

      Jamiel’s family tried to sue Los Angeles country, but a judge ruled they could not sue for wrongful death when the LA Sheriff released the illegal alien back into the community instead of returning him to Mexico.

      Very little coverage of this. See below:

        At his age and if he’s a Christian as he professes to be, McConnell should be giving more thought to the fate of his immortal soul. God is Just. While the powers of this world may try to bury it, Katie and Jamiel have not been forgotten by their Father and WILL be called as witnesses for every politician who’s had a chance to end this.

        Does McConnell want them testifying on his behalf or against him on his day of Judgement or does he think that somehow he’ll be able to fool God the way he’s fooled so many in this life?

        My prayer is that McConnell’s heart (and that of every politician) be turned towards God’s Will and so avoid the fires of Judgement.

    Another promise kept by our President. These families were shouting from the rooftops for years to be heard, and Trump is the first President that listened to them and to give them a voice.

    I have to also give credit where credit is due: The House seems to be cranking out the laws each week only to have them sit at the Senate. Last week, a Freedom Caucus Rep who was at the shooting incident with Scalese, tore the Senate apart and said that they need to get going and do their job. He talked about how the Bills are piling up at the Senate that the House passes. God only knows how long it will take to get these to Bills through the Senate and on the desk of the President to sign.

    I’m truly thankful. But the fact here is that nothing addresses why illegal aliens come to the US in the first place. Why not? Big Gov is like Big Pharm. As long as both can prescribe a pain killer, neither will talk about what caused the pain in the first place. There’s no money in it. The End.

      America had the only revolution that worked at that point. The French Revolution failed. The Russian Revolution failed.

      This is why we simply cannot bulk drop people from other countries into this one. We are indeed exceptional. An exception to the rule of other countries. There is no way we could insert a Chinese Communist into Kentucky with success. Generations of formed thinking would prohibit any allegiance or assimilation.

      I started my career with a NY architectural firm that hired Russian (USSR) nationals as draftsmen and women for a project in Moscow. The day the DD (Design Development) drawings shipped out, they were in turmoil. They thought once that package was complete, my company would just return them to Moscow. They had no idea of future.

      There were additional phases and quality control reviews afterward that would take at least a year, but they had no concept of this. Once the drawings were shipped, they thought they were done. It was shocking to see.

      My odd story went off point. The USA must be a beacon for people in other countries not to surrender and leave their own but to fix the wrongs IN their own countries.

      Because simply taking in fugitives from failed states never does anything to change the failed state.

      By the same token, the US is exceptional in that our revolution came about by being a colony with physical separation from the motherland. We formed our own identity.

      Note to imperialists.

    If anyone believes the American people didn’t vote for the right President, all you have to show them is this video. My understanding is the House GOP will vote for the two laws. However, the snakes/RINOs in the Senate either will not bring the proposed laws up for a vote or will vote it down. So, after it passes the House, we all need to contact these GOP snakes and make sure they vote on the laws.

    • Sounds like we might have some work to do mitrom.

      Emails, phone calls and snail mail if necessary.

      Many treepers think these things will not budge our elected federal reps and Senators but I am not so sure.

      Times are changing in DC and our congresscritters are not as sure of themselves as they were six months ago.

      Bombarding them with missives from us might help.

      President Trump has done a lot of work for us, we can help him out a bit.

    It’s a travesty that these Sanctuary Cities have been receiving federal funds all these years.
    They should have been cut off long ago!

    The die-hard Dem-controlled Sanctuary Cities are also the ones that are the most broke & in debt.

    Let’s see what they do when they’re faced with having to chose between fed money and continuing to break the law.

    I just finished watching this all the way through. I caught part of this while it was still going on. These stories are so heartbreaking. It’s so sad when illegal criminals have more of a voice than innocent citizens. These families and any other families who have lost loved ones in this way deserve justice by both the house and senate passing this law.

      Just think Pam, these are the STRONG parents. These are the ones who are physically capable of talking about it.

      Imagine all the families destroyed by this kind of crap that aren’t even able to articulate it, or appear on camera and fight about it? There’s thousands of families like this, all over the country dealing with this kind of loss.

      • You have made a powerful point that can not be disputed Pam.

        These criminal illegal aliens do not and should not have more right than an American citizen.

        We need to remind the Senators and Reps of this over and over again.

        We will not allow Soros’ money to keep buying their favor forever.

        Our elected officials on every level must know this.

        As the old saying goes ” We can do this the easy way or we can do this the hard way, it is up to them.”

        We are going to Make America Great Again and this does not include allowing illegals to run around freely while we pay the bill.

    While I don’t think there should be any funding going to support these criminals, I have a problem with the fact that this is the only move being made right now. The Governors of these Sanctuary Cities are criminals. They do not care for the people of their states. They consider their constituents as “human resources”. The President will cut the funding, and the Governors will punish the good citizens. Believe me, they will still get their money. They will raise taxes or worse. These cities are well known for their organized crime, human trafficking, organ harvesting. Don’t be surprised if CPS quotas go up. I’m not kidding! They are monsters! Don’t give me the crap about “Well, vote them out!”. These people have reached down and corrupted the judicial system, and the local police. They totally control the electoral system. We are hostages. They need to be arrested by the Feds. Trump is tightening the screws, and I believe he means well. But right now, it is the innocent people that will be hurt.

    Truly moving. You can’t watch that without tearing up. What these families have been through is shocking. All because of politicians and a judiciary putting illegals first that should not even be in the country. The people who allow this to happen do have blood on their hands, and there will be a special place in hell for them.

    Thank GOD for President Trump.

    Finally these families and their loved ones will get some justice and would not of died in vain.

    President Trump has been the only national official who has been a comfort to these families of victims.
    Lots of talk about doing the right thing for them from others, but all through the rallies, and throughout his five months, his heart is on his sleeve and he stands with them. He delivers what they need, a voice and the compassion and empathy of the caring Leader.

    When you measure the man, never forget how big his heart is.

    No Democrat will vote for either one of these bills. They will pass the House on a majority vote but not the Senate. Democrats are more interested in encouraging more illegals to enter the USA (and vote Democrat) than in protecting the safety of American citizens. The GOP should hammer the Dems with their anti-American vote….but most of the GOP are wimps.

    Congress.. either you are with us or against us. Tomorrow, in the House of Representatives we will find out who are the Americans who want to protect their constituents and who are the Traitors that want to murder us..

    Their intentions doesn’t get much simpler or obvious than this vote tomorrow..
