  • ‘Families Belong Together' Rally: Thousands protest family separations at border across country

President TrumpDonald John TrumpChelsea Handler issues July 4 apology to world: "We're sorry about our president" USA pork producers prepare for steep tariffs: "I don't want to be the patriot who dies at the end of the war" ACLU membership grew from 400,000 to 1.84 million after Trump was elected: report MORE on Thursday tweeted that Congress must pass immigration laws that would allow the USA authorities to summarily kick out would-be immigrants "just as they would if they were standing on your front lawn".

He called on Congress to pass "smart, fast and reasonable" immigration laws while lauding Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for their great work even though "the laws they are forced to work with are insane".

"Tell the people 'OUT, ' and they must leave, just as they would if they were standing on your front lawn", he continued in another tweet.

The Republican president has sent mixed signals to Congress on immigration in the last month, telling legislators that he wants changes to the system and then directing them to wait until after the November election when the make-up of the Senate could be more favorable to Republicans.

The House nevertheless pressed forward with a vote on the bill that would have funded Trump's border wall, offered young undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship and partially addressed the family-separation crisis at the southwest border.

"These people coming from other countries are not affecting our labor status in this country, they are not affecting the unemployment numbers at all, [and] they are not here to take American jobs", he said. "We've always had asylum in this country and to make a zero tolerance policy is unacceptable", said protester Christine Ingles.

Meanwhile, Trump's broader proposal to deny migrants all forms of due process - and to simply eject them from the country like rowdy teens on a front lawn - would require a constitutional amendment to enact.

Almost one quarter of the calls attempted to report a crime (mostly nonviolent, like marriage fraud and forgery), for which callers were referred to ICE's tip line, and an eighth sought general information about VOICE.

Trade Wars: Trump loads first volley against China
The past two summits, in 2016 and 2017, ended without a statement due to disagreements over the South China Sea and trade. Washington is conducting a national security study that could lead to tariffs on imported cars and vehicle parts.

Democrats also want the administration to be able to process illegal immigrants flooding the border more swiftly.

What's happening at the U.S. -Mexico border, children being separated from their parents has fueled frustration.

There is no official Trump policy meant to separate parents from their children.

Most Immigrants flee their countries in order to find a better life in America, risking everything in order to escape the violence and instability of their homeland.

On a few occasions, photographs being used to generate the outrage - images allegedly showing weeping children detained by the government and separated from their parents - were proven to be fake or taken out of context.

CNN's Nick Valencia similarly reported Monday, citing an attorney from the Southern Poverty Law Center, that "many are being pressured to sign this before they've even seen a judge, and despite not having a final order of removal".

The credible fear interview is the first hurdle people seeking asylum must pass for the government to fully consider their case.
