Trump wants those who ‘invade’ sent right back

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

"We can not allow these people to invade our County", Trump tweeted.

"When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came", said Trump, suggesting they be handled without the due legal process guaranteed for "any person" by the US Constitution.

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

Massive public outcry has grown over children being separated from their parents attempting to cross into the USA illegally.

"Rather than encouraging people to vote for it, (Trump) gave them a reason not to vote for it by saying 'What's the point of having the vote if the Senate isn't going to pass it?'" he said.

Republican apprehension over President Donald Trump's next tweet and fear of riling conservative voters are undermining GOP leaders' election-year struggle to shove an immigration bill through the House this week, leaving their prospects dubious.

The president tweeted on Sunday blaming the Democrats for holding up work on immigration reform. Don't RESIST. We are doing a far better job than Bush and Obama, but we need strength and security at the Border! Can not accept all the people trying to break into our Country. Last week, he rejected calls from Congress to hire more immigration judges.

USA immigration law provides certain rights for undocumented immigrants arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

"We have been encouraging illegal immigration", Johnson said on CNN's "State of the Union".

This is not the first time Flake, who sits on the Judiciary Committee, has threatened to block Trump's judicial picks. "At the time, we are keeping a very powerful border, and it continues to be a zero tolerance [policy]-we have zero tolerance for people that enter our country illegally".

"Because of our insatiable demand for drugs, yes public institutions in Central America have been destroyed, but they were destroyed prior to 2012 and DACA", Johnson said.

Roughly 2,300 children were separated from their families in recent weeks by US Border Control.

Outside the House chamber, Rep. Ryan Costello, R-Pa., said Trump's tweet - which may simply reflect a recognition that the conservative bill was doomed anyway - could sway undecided Republicans to vote against the more moderate bill. "And a rational way is not locking children up in detention centers or separating them from their mothers".
