Tough hombres, part deux

You have some pretty tough hombres in Mexico that you may need help with, and we are willing to help you with that big-league. But they have to be knocked out and you have not done a good job of knocking them out.

– President Donald J. Trump, January, 2017, to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto

Celebrating Tragedy

First non-valedictorian DREAMer deported. Border Patrol, this one’s for you.

– Republican Representative Steve King, April 18, 2017, after hearing that Border Patrol (possibly illegally) deported a kid brought into the US at nine years old, who has suffered a traumatic brain injury, and is in college

Concentration Camps

What we should do is. First of all, we should develop detention centres for them [undocumented immigrants]. It shouldn’t be catch and release. They shouldn’t go to jail for five years for assault, or attempted murder, or selling drugs, and then go back out on the street. They should go to a detention centre. They should be held. And then, we should exert all the pressure that we have, which is enormous by the way, to deport them to the countries where they should go to.

Not All Mexicans, Just the Ones You Should Fear

When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

– President Donald J. Trump, June 16, 2015
