President Trump on Monday called the U.S. illegal immigration processing and deportation system “a whole big wasted procedure” in a pair of tweets demanding that Congress act.
“As ridiculous as it sounds, the laws of our country do not easily allow us to send those crossing our Southern Border back to where they came from,” Trump tweeted.
The president also said that Mexico, Honduras and “many other countries” take advantage of U.S. immigration laws to send their citizens here.
“Must pass tough laws and build the WALL. Democrats allow open borders, drugs and crime!” Trump added.
