President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that the United States can't allow migrants to "invade" the country and must be immediately sent back where they came from without due process.
"We can not allow all of these people to invade our Country", Trump said on Sunday on Twitter while in a motorcade headed to his golf course in Virginia. "When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came", Trump said in a series of two tweets Sunday morning.
"Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and law and order".
The House is expected to vote on immigration legislation later this week.
"We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in - we're stopping a lot of them", Mr. Trump said in the Cabinet Room during an hourlong meeting that reporters were allowed to document.
Trevor Noah is confused about the message of Melania Trump's jacket, too
As she boarded a plane to Texas , she appeared to be wearing a Zara jacket with the astonishing caption: "I really don't care". This jacket certainly seems like quite a misstep on her part, potentially feeding into Melania Trump's critics' claims.
Besides providing $23.4 billion for border security-including technology, physical barriers and a wall separating parts of the USA from Mexico-the compromise bill would also provide a legal status for the young immigrants brought to the country illegally as minors and living in the US on June 15, 2007, and open up a pathway to citizenship. At the Nevada Republican Conference in Las Vegas on Saturday, Trump continued to advocate for the "zero tolerance" policy and said that he wants immigration based on merit.
Family separations spark a war about credibility.
A GOP House member from Texas on Sunday said President Trump is "still 100 percent" behind passing a Republican-backed immigration bill even though he wrote in a tweet last week that "they should stop wasting their time". "We need people to come in but they need to love this country to help make America great again". "The president's suggestion that there is a ton of process for these individuals is simply wrong".
Still, Trump has rejected calls for additional immigration judges at the border, instead calling for strong security and a border wall.
U.S. Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, said immigrants have a right to seek asylum and have a hearing.
Keeping the children with their migrant parents as they await court proceedings faces obstacles, however, including the lack of sufficient housing, a paucity of immigration judges and a daunting backlog of cases.
