"Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release", Trump went on.
Trump also threatened to end the North American Free Trade Agreement if Mexico does not do more to stop migrants on Mexico's northern border.
Taking to his Twitter account, Trump asked Republicans to pass tougher immigration laws now, claiming "our country is being stolen".
The president suggested that the illegal aliens entering the United States are hoping to take advantage of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program which gave temporary legal status to aliens who entered the country illegally as children.
"A lot of people are coming in because they want to take advantage of DACA", Trump told the traveling press pool. Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are GREAT, but the weak Dem laws don't allow them to do their job. Most say such a rule change would be a bad idea and they are probably right, but Democrats - if and when they regain control of the Senate - may, themselves, invoke the so-called nuclear option in order to roll back the Trump agenda.
A group called Pueblo Sin Frontera, or People Without Borders, organized the mass movement through Mexico as a way of helping Central American migrants avoid criminal gangs and harassment by authorities as they trek to the USA border. "It can't happen that way anymore".
America's eagerness to strike a deal on its biggest trade pact comes as US stocks tumbled, falling in seven of their last 10 trading sessions on concerns Trump's protectionism could spark a trade war. In fact, only people who continuously lived in the United States since June 15, 2007, and met other specific criteria were eligible for DACA.
Trump also tweeted that the US must build a border wall, but argued that "Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!" Under the policy, unlawful immigrants are released from detention while they await hearings in immigration court. "For whatever reason Trump is conflating two different issues, DACA and reasons these people are on the caravan".
But detention centers have continued releasing low-risk immigrants, as the backlog of immigration court cases reaches the hundreds of thousands.
Congress can not pass any legislation immediately as lawmakers are on their second week of a spring recess, but taking a tough stance on immigration appeals to Trump's conservative base.
The majority of migrants traveling in the 2018 caravan are originally from Honduras, according to BuzzFeed, and many are fleeing the political unrest that followed the 2017 elections there. Due to lawsuits challenging the rescission, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is only accepting applications for renewals.
Trump'sSunday comments may have been mere musings by an impassioned "Fox & Friends" viewer and may not signal a substantive shift in administration policies. Trumpsaid on Twitter.
The president began expressing his frustration with DACA over the weekend at his private Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla. "He's in the Oval Office" of the White House, Durbin said referring to Trump.
This might not matter much to the president, because he did not need the Latino vote to win the White House in 2016. Trump has run out of patience on immigration and he feels he is racing against time to fix a broken system. "His true position was always anti-immigrant". Accusing the migrants of seeking to benefit from DACA, he declared no deal would be made to replace it. They did not provide a timetable for submitting it to Congress and did not say whether provisions to help DACA recipients would be included.
Conservative reaction to the tweets was relatively muted, and no Republican member of Congress had a comment or statement Sunday afternoon.
Despite Trump's overtures to congressional Democrats on immigration, no deal has materialized.
President Donald Trump is calling for new border wall and immigration legislation, tweeting that moving to the "nuclear option" in the Senate is only way to muscle such a measure through Congress.
"Try to get a message to the commander in chief for that wall", she wrote.
