Trump to cite gang violence in New York town in pressing for deportationsBy Roberta Rampton and Mica Rosenberg WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – President Donald Trump arrived in New York on Friday for a visit to a community shocked by a recent spate of graphic gang murders to highlight his efforts to stop illegal immigration and boost deportations. Trump’s trip to Brentwood on Long Island east of the city gives the president an opportunity to showcase some progress on his agenda even as his push to overhaul healthcare failed in Congress – and some respite from the chaos of a nasty power struggle among his senior staff that blew up on Thursday.
