WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday pushed back against court rulings against his administration’s migrant detention policies, saying immigrants should not come to the United States illegally.
“I have a solution: Tell people not to come to our county illegally. That’s the solution,” Trump told reporters at the White House a day after a U.S. federal judge rejected long-term detention of illegal immigrant children. “Come legally.”
