President Trump used extraordinarily harsh rhetoric to renew his call for stronger immigration laws Wednesday, calling undocumented immigrants "animals" and venting frustration at Mexican officials who he said "do nothing" to help the United States. Later that month, he said in NY that MS-13 "thugs" had "transformed peaceful parks and lovely quiet neighborhoods into bloodstained killing fields" and "they are animals".
If one watches the actual video of the exchange from Wednesday's roundtable - rather than the selectively truncated segments - it becomes clear Trump was referring to the notorious MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, gang members rather than Latin Americans or illegal immigrants in general.
Trump also said the U.S. has the "the dumbest laws on immigration in the world".
Trump blamed the influx of illegal immigrants in the USA on the country's "dumbest laws".
When attendees blasted Brown, who referred to anti-sanctuary politicians as "low-life" politicians, for not meeting with them, Trump said that "somebody said he is going to run for president". "They want protection. That's what we're all about". "And I've talked to the soldiers and the soldiers are wondering why we won't get out and be a part of this process with the president".

In February, the Trump administration filed suit against a California law that restricts how and when state law enforcement can interact with federal immigration authorities.
"You're not protecting immigrant communities", Homan said to a roomful of like-minded people. If anything, ICE arrests of people with no criminal records have more than doubled since the former reality TV star with no political or military experience whatsoever took office.
"She informed them, and they all fled - or majority fled - and that whole operation, that took a long time to put together", Trump said.
The commander-in-chief, who has never really shied away from insulting immigrants, was having a roundtable discussion with a group of California sheriffs when he made the deeply disturbing remarks conflating immigration with delinquency - because according to the current administration, everyone who entered the US illegally is criminal, regardless of the large possibility they could have done it to flee violence and war in their home countries.
