Speaking outside the White House before leaving for the much anticipated NATO summit in Brussels, president Trump spoke out against illegal immigration when asked about Tuesday’s court-imposed deadline that was missed for reuniting migrant families.
“I have a solution,” Trump said. “Tell people not to come to our country illegally. That’s the solution. Don’t come to our country illegally. Come like other people do, come legally.”
He added, “I’m saying this, very simply. We have laws. We have borders. Don’t come to our country illegally. It’s not a good thing.”
President Trump went on to call out the Democrats who are advocating for open borders.
“Democrats want open borders and they don’t mind crime,” Trump said. “We want no crime and we want borders where borders mean something. All right? And, remember this, without borders, you do not have a country.”
