U.S. President Donald Trump has called on Democrats to vote for his immigration reform to fix the ‘National Emergency’ on the United States border with Mexico, saying that migrants from Central America – “the bad ‘hombres,’ of which there are many, are being detained & will be sent home”.

In a string of tweets Friday morning, Trump again promised a crack down on illegal immigration, announcing that serious measures were already being taken by border patrol to curb the crisis.

Aside from current measures, he added that the country’s ‘removal forces’ would be beefed up, and that laws would be changed in order to assure that those coming in illegally will be “removed from our Country.”

Trump also claimed that Democrats now recognize that there is a “national emergency” at the border, and that there is a “good chance” they will help take action on the issue ahead of elections.

On Thursday, Trump announced a plan for sweeping immigration reform, promising to make America the “envy of the world.” In particular, the plan targets “catch and release” loopholes which allow migrants detained at the border to be released into the US.

However, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, didn’t agree that Trump’s plan was composed in a bipartisan spirit, but rather “to unify the Republican Party around border security.”
