Trump to separated migrant families: 'Don't come to our country illegally'

  • President Donald Trump speaks at the beginning of a National Space Council meeting in the East Room of the White House in Washington Monday

When the President was asked about the deadline the government missed to reunite all undocumented children under the age of 5 with their parents, Trump told reporters, "Well, I have a solution". Don't come to our country illegally. That's the solution: Don't come to our country illegally. Come like other people do.

Trump, who has previously advocated denying migrant families due process when accused of crossing the southern border illegally, also brushed off a reporter's question about whether he was calling for punishing children.

"I'm saying this: We have laws". A judge rejected officials' request to extend the deadline.

The Trump administration is struggling to unite immigrant families that it separated at the U.S. -Mexico border after another U.S. judge in San Diego last month ordered them to be reunited as soon as Tuesday.

They are among more than 2,300 children who have been removed from their parents at the border because of the administration's immigration policies.


He pushed back at suggestions that children were suffering because of his immigration policies. There is nobody under greater danger that the people from ICE.

"[ICE agents] go into harm's way".

"Democrats want open borders and they don't mind crime", Trump said. "We want to support ICE, not what the Democrats are doing", Trump said. "And remember this, without borders, you do not have a country", Trump said.

Sabraw said on Monday he was "very encouraged with the progress" made so far, but declined to issue a blanket extension to the administration, instead asking for a detailed list of reasons for each case in which the government had failed to reunite a young child with his or her family.
