Donald Trump Appears to Defend Family Separation Policy on Twitter

US President Donald Trump speaks on immigration next to people holding posters of people allegedly killed by illegal immigrants

President Donald Trump on Sunday (June 24) called for the USA to deport people without judicial proceedings, referred to an invasion by "these people" and railed against standing immigration laws.

The president pointed out the United States can not accept all of the people who are trying to break into the country.

He said, "When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came".

It was unclear if Trump was advocating an expansion of the current law that allows expedited removal of illegal immigrants at the United States border, a policy his administration has embraced since he took office.

Trump's tough demand to end that legal process would face stiff opposition in Congress, which for years has been stalemated on changes to US immigration policies and unable to enact new migration laws.

Trump also raised a fresh call to base the decision to grant immigration on merit.

In a follow-up tweet, Trump said immigration policy in the USA is "laughed at all over the world", and "is very unfair to all of those people who have gone through the system legally and are waiting on line for years!"

Trump urges Republican lawmakers to drop immigration effort
If a bill makes it through the House, it would still have to be supported by several Senate Democrats to pass both houses. Trump himself took a hard line on the crisis, accusing the Democrats of telling "phoney stories of sadness and grief".

Starbucks also highlighted a focus on teas, health-and-wellness options and "product innovation around core beverages". That alliance frees Starbucks to focus on improving its mainstay US cafe business, where traffic growth had stalled.

Representative Luis Gutierrez, a Democrat from IL, said today that the president's choice of words was being used to gin up his supporters for the mid-terms.

He said it would address border security, protections for "Dreamers", family migration and the separation of children from their parents.

Wisconsin GOP Sen. Ron Johnson said Sunday the laws and practices of the USA have encouraged undocumented immigration to levels the nation can not handle.

It isn't the first time Trump has criticized the judicial process for migrants who cross the border illegally.

As he has in numerous private meetings with his advisers at the White House, Mr. Trump used the session to vent about the nation's immigration laws, calling them "the dumbest laws on immigration in the world". "I like the issue for election, too: Our issue is strong borders, no crime; their issue is open borders, let MS-13 all over our country", Trump told the state GOP convention in Las Vegas on Saturday night. He has a lot of catching up to do with members of the Twitter #Resistance spreading the #BlueWave and #BlueWave2018 hashtags as they have been doing ever since Trump was elected.

Voto Latino and other advocates rallied in the Texas border town of Tornillo to demand the Trump administration fix the humanitarian crisis they say Trump's policies have created.

As anger over the policy reached its peak, Trump signed an Executive Order on June 20 to enable these families to stay together. But the government has yet to reunite more than 2,000 children with their parents.
