Bernie Sanders: Trump will not deport me
Posted On July 3, 2021
Bernie Sanders is on a mission to get Donald Trump to deport the millions of undocumented immigrants living in the United States.
The Vermont senator is the latest to speak out against the president’s plan to build a wall along the southern border and deport 11 million undocumented immigrants in a speech to a group of business leaders in New York on Thursday.
“The president has no idea what he’s talking about.
He is talking about mass deportations, mass deportation.
I am not going to be deported,” Sanders said, standing with other supporters in front of the White House.
They have to live in their own country. “
People have to go home.
They have to live in their own country.
They’ve got to live with their families.
We have to protect them from any kind of harm.
We need to be respectful to their religion.
We cannot allow them to be targeted for deportation.”
Sanders said he would fight Trump’s plan “in every way” as president, and pledged to protect undocumented immigrants, particularly those who have been living in America for generations, from deportation.
The senator, who has advocated for an overhaul of immigration policy, said he believes Trump would make good on his campaign pledge to deport 11m undocumented immigrants.
“I am prepared to go as far as the president and fight the wall, as far in as the United Nations,” Sanders told the group of 200 people at a hotel ballroom in New Jersey.
“We are going to build this wall.
We are going see that we are going get it done.
“He is making this promise, and he is not doing it. “
And I will not let him.””
He is making this promise, and he is not doing it.
And I will not let him.”
Sanders, who was elected to the Senate in 2016 and is currently a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president, was joined by fellow Democrats including New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, California Sen. Kamala Harris, California Gov.
Gavin Newsom, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and several other Democrats.
Sanders has long been an advocate for immigration reform.
In 2016, he led a filibuster against the nomination of President Donald Trump, and also introduced a bill that would have authorized a border wall with Mexico.
But he has been reluctant to push for a major overhaul of the nation’s immigration system, and has faced backlash from many in his party.
In a tweet this week, Sanders blasted Trump’s border wall plans, saying: “Trump is putting millions of people in harm’s way.
It will be an expensive, dangerous and ineffective wall.”
The tweet came after Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order that called for construction of a wall across the US-Mexico border and ordered the Department of Homeland Security to start building it by January 1, 2021.
Trump’s executive order also called for the creation of a “deportation task force” with the goal of getting undocumented immigrants out of the country.
