Tell people not to come to our country illegally

Trump Dismisses Missed Deadline for Reuniting Migrant Families: The Solution is Come Here Legally

When asked about his administration's missing the deadline to reunite families separated at the border, President Donald Trump insinuated that the separations are a deterrent, saying that the families should not have come illegally.

Trump's comments come after the federal government failed to meet Tuesday's deadline to reunite all children under the age of 5 who have been held by the government for weeks or months with their parents, after being separated from them at the border.

"I have a solution: Tell people not to come to our county illegally".

Speaking outside the White House prior to leaving for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, the president sounded off against illegal immigration when asked about the missed deadline. Don't come to our country illegally. "Come like other people do, come legally".

Pressed on whether his "solution" was to punish children for being brought to the U.S. illegally by adults, Trump retreated to more general comments.

He added, "I'm saying this, very simply. It's not a good thing", Mr. Trump said.

Under the "zero-tolerance", policy, while parents entering the USA illegally were held for prosecution, children were placed in Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) facilities across the country.

They are among more than 2,300 children who have been removed from their parents at the border because of the administration's immigration policies.

Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, said: "The court is holding the Trump administration's feet to the fire to get these kids reunited with their parents".

He condemned Democrats fighting against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), calling their fight "a disgrace".

"These people go into harm's way".

Trump said Democrats want open borders and are soft on stopping crime. "We want to support ICE, not what the Democrats are doing", Trump said. That was fewer than the 54 children the federal government had previously said would be reunited by the deadline.
