DONALD TRUMP has sparked anger after labelling immigrants as "animals, not people."

The US President made the shocking remarks at a roundtable event with California sheriffs on Wednesday (May 16).

According to the Evening Standard, he said: [Immigrants] There aren't people, these are animals and we're taking them out of the country, at a level and a rate that's never happened before."

Trump then told officers at the White House event that America has the "dumbest laws on immigration in the world" and vowed to take care of it.

President Trump's comments came after one sheriff told the president that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency are unable to check police databases to "find the bad guys" .

She added: "They cannot come in and talk to people in our jail, unless they reach a certain threshold. They can’t do all kinds of things that other law enforcement agencies can do."

The sheriff warned the president:"There could be an MS-13 member I know about - if they don't reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about it."

MS-13 is said to be one of the most brutal street gangs in the world.

Last month, the controversial President blamed the Obama administration for the formation of the MS-13 gangs.

He tweeted: "The weak illegal immigration policies of the Obama Amin. allowed bad MS 13 gangs to form in cities across the U.S. We are removing them fast!"
