After Judge’s Ruling Trump Indicates He Will Not Return to “Catch and Release”

President Trump Tuesday showed defiance after a ruling by Los Angeles-based U.S. District Court Judge Dolly Gee that children of illegal immigrants could not be detained indefinitely with their parents.

The ruling, which likely will be appealed, poses a challenge to Trump’s recent executive order seeking to end the separation of families by allowing children to be detained with their parents.

Trump spoke to reporters before departing for Brussels for the NATO Summit:

I have a solution. Tell people not to come to our country illegally. That’s the solution. Don’t come to our country illegally. Come like other people do. Come legally . . . We have laws. We have borders. Don’t come to our country illegally. It’s not a good thing.

“Absolutely nothing prevents [the administration] from reconsidering their current blanket policy of family detention and reinstating prosecutorial discretion,” Gee wrote.

By prosecutorial discretion, she means “catch and release.”

The point Trump will make is that nothing prevents Congress from changing the law to allow families to be held together. But Schumer and Pelosi would rather have a political issue than help families.

Here is Trump’s short meeting with reporters on the South Lawn.

And I’m sorry, if I get accused of sexism, so be it. But Melania looks incredible. I don’t think she’d mind me saying it at all, nor would he. And frankly, if you can’t call a beautiful woman beautiful anymore without everyone assuming that means you think she’s a dummy, or complaining that it must mean someone else is not beautiful, then there is something very wrong. We objectify each other all day long. And we do have standards. It’s human nature, something liberals are constantly fighting against.

  1. The Press is being spoiled by this President who stops to address them, ad libs his way through a mini-briefing, and then waves.

    MrsTrump. Oh yes. Beautiful, graceful, elegant, even a little mysterious – she has it all.

  2. Hear is something Trump could do: take the 7th Marine regiment stationed at Twenty Nine Palms and deploy them along the California border. And call up the National Guard and Reserve units required to protect the entire border. This would not violate the Posse Comitatus Act because we are being invaded by Mexico. There have also been instances of the Mexican Army firing on our Border Patrol. Let’s use the military for what it was intended: protecting the borders of the United States and repelling foreign aggression. The use of welfare and other social services IS aggression.

  3. Keith, if a red blooded heterosexual man can’t express his admiration for a beautiful, classy, elegant woman like Melania Trump, there’s something very wrong in this world. I say this as a woman, who never felt that being admired by a man was “sexist”!
