President Donald Trump received harsh criticism from his base after he announced on Saturday that he had canceled next week's planned nationwide raids of immigrant families.
"At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the illegal immigration removal process (deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the asylum and loophole problems at the Southern Border," Trump tweeted.
"If not, deportations start," he added.
After years of Trump arguing that immigrants are a dire threat to the country, many in his base saw the move as a betrayal.
Here are some of the complaints Trump received:
