Illegal Immigrants Should be Deported Without Court Hearing, Says Trump

"When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no judges or court cases, bring them back from where they came," U.S. President Donald Trump said on Twitter.


United States President Donald Trump said on June 24 that people who enter the country illegally should be deported without any court hearing. Trump tweeted that the United States cannot accept immigrants trying to “break into” the country. He did not distinguish between people seeking asylum in America and undocumented immigrants.

“We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country. When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order. Most children come without parents,” Trump posted on Twitter.

Saying that the current U.S immigration policy is “laughed at all over the world,” Trump added that it is unfair to people who have followed due legal processes to gain entry into the country.

Trump also called upon the Democrats to not “resist” the attempts to toughen the laws, and strengthen security at the U.S. border.

The latest hardline post by Trump is, however, once again being received with criticism.

Dismissing the implication that the migrants should be denied due legal process, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said that a mother with a young child who sought asylum in the United States after facing threats from gangs should not be denied judicial process, USA Today reported.

“That’s not what our country stands for,” Warren, who was visiting a processing center for undocumented immigrants on the Texas border, was quoted as saying by the publication. “We do have a system of laws.”

Among the hundreds of people held in the United States over attempts to enter the country without proper documents are several Indians. About 100 Indians are lodged at two detention centers in the United States over alleged attempts to enter the country illegally. While 42 Indian immigrants are held at the Otero County Detention Center in New Mexico, 52 others, mostly Sikhs, are housed at a facility in Oregon, according to reports that emerged last week.

Trump had last week revoked the order to separate immigrant children from their families at the border, following widespread criticism over the move to enforce his “zero tolerance” policy towards people crossing into the United States illegally.

Federal officials on June 24 announced a plan to unite migrant children with their families at a detention center in Texas. The reunifications, however, may not take place until the parent’s deportation proceedings are complete, the Department of Homeland Security said, according to the report.

Undocumented immigrants who are arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement department are given certain rights under the U.S. immigration law. Most of them are allowed a full hearing before an immigration judge before being deported, Reuters reported.
