President Trump Demands No 'Judges or Court' for Illegal Border Crossers

President Donald Trump ramped up his attacks on the United States' immigration system on Sunday, calling for those immigrants who illegally enter the country to be deported without judicial proceedings.

Trump wrote that the USA immigration system is "laughed at all over the world", and is "very unfair" to those who use legal avenues to gain entry.

"We can not allow all of these people to invade our Country", Trump tweeted while on the way to his golf course in Virginia.

Trump said once "somebody comes in" the country, they should be removed with "no Judges or Court Cases" - a move that would violate the long-established legal precedent for immigrants' rights to due process. "Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order", Trump tweeted.

The latest presidential exhortations came as Republicans were prepping for a vote on immigration legislation, after a more hard-line bill failed last week.

In a pair of tweets sent while being driven to his Virginia golf course, Trump described immigrants as "invaders" and said USA immigration laws should be changed to take away trial rights from undocumented migrants. "The president's suggestion that there is a ton of process for these individuals is simply wrong".

Trump's tweets came as House Republican leaders sought to get enough support for a bill that would fund the president's border wall that he promised Mexico would pay for, toughen immigration laws, and offer a path to citizenship for unauthorized immigrants brought to the U.S.as children, known as "dreamers". "Most children come without parents", he tweeted Sunday morning.

The Trump administration has faced increasing criticism over what advisers have claimed is a conscious decision to take minors away from undocumented immigrant parents and guardians. He said during a campaign appearance Saturday in Las Vegas that being for "strong borders, no crime" is a winning issue for Republicans to run on in November's congressional elections.

The administration has not designated a single point-person to oversee the reunification process, as some members of Congress have suggested.

When children are transferred into custody, HHS receives information from DHS about how they entered the country and "to the extent possible" information about parents or guardians, according to the statement. But it has settled on a location for much of the activity: Port Isabel Service Processing Center, 20 miles northeast of Brownsville, Texas. I work with kindergarteners, some of these kids are younger than that. Any details provided to parents in these calls will be sent to HHS, which, along with ICE, will review its data to locate children and verify the parent-child relationship.
