On Sunday, the president tweeted about an “onslaught of illegal aliens” and complained about U.S. court rulings on immigration that have gone against his administration:
Full efforts are being made to stop the onslaught of illegal aliens from crossing our Souther Border. People have to apply for asylum in Mexico first, and if they fail to do that, the U.S. will turn them away. The courts are asking the U.S. to do things that are not doable!

Jesus, man–you act like the Red Chinese army was invading. They’re just a bunch of scared and hungry people.

Others also joined in to criticize the president:
Our courts speak eloquently and truthfully.

Imagine what would have happened if the US treated your immigrant parents the same way you are treating these people. Or what if your immigrant wife wasn’t able to enter the US borders? You bring nothing but shame to America.
