A Texas nonprofit working to reunite immigrant families who were separated at the U.S. southern border ripped President TrumpDonald TrumpSenators given no timeline on removal of National Guard, Capitol fence Democratic fury with GOP explodes in House Georgia secretary of state withholds support for 'reactionary' GOP voting bills MORE as an “incompetent loser” on Thursday.


The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) in San Antonio said Trump has no plan to reunite migrant families separated by “his stupid policy” of zero tolerance toward those who cross the border illegally. 

“Such an incompetent LOSER,” the group posted on Twitter.

RAICES was responding to Trump’s Thursday call for Congress to fix “our insane immigration laws.”

Trump told lawmakers in a series of tweets that U.S. authorities should be allowed to deport would-be immigrants “just as they would if they were standing on your front lawn.

His call for reform comes after massive backlash surrounding his zero tolerance immigration policy, unveiled by Attorney General Jeff SessionsJefferson (Jeff) Beauregard SessionsManchin flexes muscle in 50-50 Senate Udalls: Haaland criticism motivated 'by something other than her record' Ocasio-Cortez targets Manchin over Haaland confirmation MORE in April.

The measure led to more than 2,000 migrant children being separated from their families and held in detention facilities.

Trump signed an executive order to halt the separations, but thousands of families have yet to be reunited.

Hundreds of thousands of protesters marched on Saturday to protest the Trump administration’s actions.

RAICES has been flooded with donations since the beginning of the practice, which it has been using to try to bring immigrant parents and children back together.

Charlotte and Dave Willner, a California couple, started an online fundraiser for the nonprofit that has become the single largest fundraiser on Facebook to date.

More than $20 million has been raised for RAICES as of Thursday afternoon.
