Trump calls for deporting illegal immigrants with 'no judges or court cases'

"Strong Borders, No Crime!" he added. Nor did Trump differentiate between illegal immigrants and people who entered the U.S. to seek asylum protection.

Since May 2017, the Trump administration has reportedly been considering expanding the policy to allow for the immediate deportation of undocumented immigrants anywhere in the country who can not prove they have lived in the US continuously for more than 90 days.

He said it would address border security, protections for "Dreamers", family migration and the separation of children from their parents. He also once against blamed Democrats for the country's immigration problems, urging them to not "resist" and instead strengthen security at the USA border.

Since buckling on the issue on Wednesday, Trump has redoubled his criticism of US immigration laws on Twitter and in speeches where he likened illegal immigrants to invaders trying to "break into" the country.

The White House did not return a call seeking clarification.

"What President Trump has suggested here is both illegal and unconstitutional", said Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project.

In a pair of tweets sent while being driven to his Virginia golf course, Trump described immigrants as "invaders" and said U.S. immigration laws should be changed to take away trial rights from undocumented migrants.

"The president of the United States has just forcefully proposed the end of political asylum and no due process for migrants", Sherrilyn Ifill, president of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, wrote on Twitter. "Don't RESIST", Trump said on Twitter.

The president buckled to the pressure on Wednesday, issuing an executive order that ended the separations.

But Trump's frustration over the issue only grew. "I don't want judges, I want border patrol, I want ICE".

A defiant Trump has, however, said that his "zero tolerance" policy on undocumented immigrants - in which all unlawful border crossings are referred for prosecution - will continue. "And a rational way is not locking children up in detention centers or separating them from their mothers".

However, keeping the children with their migrant parents as they await court proceedings faces obstacles including lack of sufficient housing, a paucity of immigration judges and a daunting backlog of cases. In a tweet, he called on Democratic lawmakers to help pass immigration reform, despite on Friday telling Republicans to "stop wasting their time" on the issue until after midterm elections in November.

"What President Trump has suggested here is both illegal and unconstitutional".
