Donald Trump sent a series of tweets about immigration starting just before 7am this morning, including an order to Republicans to “stop wasting their time on immigration.”
In the messages, Trump blamed Democrats for the Republicans failure to pass immigration reform bills this week and backed Republicans running for office in the upcoming midterm elections.
Elect more Republicans in November and we will pass the finest, fairest and most comprehensive Immigration Bills anywhere in the world. Right now we have the dumbest and the worst. Dems are doing nothing but Obstructing. Remember their motto, RESIST! Ours is PRODUCE!
Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November. Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!

Facing condemnation from across the political spectrum, Donald Trump on Wednesday announced the end of his family separation policy that saw at least 2300 children separated from their parents.
But there remains no system in place to reunite families, his administration plans to prolong family detention past the legal limit of 20 days and attorneys have identified loopholes that could allow family separations to continue at a smaller scale.
