While at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. on Saturday, according to The Hill, the president tweeted, "When people come into our Country illegally, we must IMMEDIATELY escort them back out without going through years of legal maneuvering. Our laws are the dumbest anywhere in the world. Republicans want Strong Borders and no Crime. Dems want Open Borders and are weak on Crime!"
This tweet echoes his claims from last week that immigrants who crossed the border illegally would be sent back to the countries that had come from without due process.
The president's latest tweet on immigration came on the same afternoon thousands of people in Washington D.C. and cities across the country gathered to protest Trump's "zero tolerance" policies. These harsh policies have led to thousands of migrant children being separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.
In response to criticism of family separation, Trump signed an executive order that allows children to be detained with their parents. However, children are not legally allowed to be detained for more than 20 days under a 1997 consent decree, according to The Hill, so it is not yet known how long this executive order will be in effect. On Wednesday, Congress rejected a compromise immigration bill that would have addressed the family separation issue.
