Trump Wants Those Who ‘Invade’ Sent Right Back

President Trump says people who "invade" the USA must immediately be sent back to their countries and not be given a court hearing.

He added that our immigration policy is "very unfair to all of those people who have gone through the system legally".

"We can not allow all of these people to invade our Country", he tweeted.

Mr. Trump said they should be deported with "no Judges or Court Cases".

"Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and law and order".

Following mounting domestic and worldwide condemnation, Mr Trump last week signed an executive order to stop children being separated at the southern United States border.

It's the latest in a series of statements stretching Trump's entire national political career that carelessly conflate immigration, criminality, and violence.

His proposal drew immediate criticism from legal analysts and immigrant rights advocates who said it would violate the U.S. Constitution's due process provision, which applies to citizens and non-citizens alike.

Sanders differentiated between Trump and the Obama administration on this issue, saying there was "concern" about the treatment of undocumented immigrants under Obama, but that it was not the same as family separation under Trump.

Trump buckled to the pressure on Wednesday, issuing an executive order that ended the separations but the government has yet to reunite more than 2000 children with their parents. "Strong Borders, No Crime!"

"What President Trump has suggested here is both illegal and unconstitutional".

Since May 2017, the Trump administration has reportedly been considering expanding the policy to allow for the immediate deportation of undocumented immigrants anywhere in the country who can not prove they have lived in the USA continuously for more than 90 days. Critics in Trump's Republican Party, as well as his wife and daughter, urged him to abandon the policy.

United States law does permit expedited deportations if an immigrant is apprehended within 160km of the border and has been in the country for less than 14 days. But it has settled on a location for much of the activity: Port Isabel Service Processing Center, 20 miles northeast of Brownsville, Texas.

Children have been sent to shelters all over the country, fuelling concern that parents might never know where their children are.

Senator James Lankford expressed confidence today in the efforts to get kids back with their families and the workers from DHS, HHS and other agencies that are handling the cases.

When children are transferred into custody, HHS receives information from DHS about how they entered the country and "to the extent possible" information about parents or guardians, according to the statement.
