Trump tells immigrants seeking asylum: 'Our country is full'

Trump says he'll slap tariffs on Mexico if it doesn't stop flow of drugs and migrants Trump retreats from Mexico border closing, threatens car tariffs instead

The Republican president's latest pronouncements, including a threat to impose auto tariffs on Mexico, are in response to a rising number of migrants, many of them families with children, traveling northward from Central America through Mexico and to the us border.

On Friday morning, the president reiterated his threat to impose 25% tariffs on cars coming from Mexico if immigrants continue to enter the US over the southern border in large numbers.

U.S. President Donald Trump says he's considering slapping Mexico with an unspecified economic penalty to crack down on immigration and drug trafficking on the southern border. The President's backers added they want to see immigration reform come from the visit to the border town. Can't take you. Our country is full... "Can't take you anymore. So turn around, that's the way it is".

An empowered Miller is also eyeing the removal of Lee Francis Cissna, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which runs the legal immigration system, according to two people who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss internal staffing matters. Protesters in the area deployed the giant "Trump baby" balloon ahead of the president's visit on Friday.

Trump indicated again that closing the border is no longer on the cards at present, but reiterated a warning that he will impose 25 percent tariffs on auto imports from Mexico if illegal migration and drug smuggling are not controlled.

"I never changed my mind at all", Trump said in response to a question from ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl as he left for the trip Friday morning. "I may shut it down at some point, but I'd rather do tariffs", Trump told reporters.

As Trump landed in California, the state's governor ripped the president's rhetoric about asylum seekers and proposed plans to change the nation's system.

Trump has yet to complete any new mileage of fencing or other barriers anywhere on the border, though he declared Friday that at least 400 miles (650 kilometres) of the border barrier would be erected over the next two years.

Trump said Mexico has improved immigration enforcement since he threatened to close the border last week.

"They always say, 'Oh, I fear for my life, '" he said contemptuously. Border Patrol and CBP generally oversee enforcement at the USA border and ports of entry; ICE meanwhile carries out immigration enforcement within the country's interior.

The request comes after Congressional efforts to stop Trump from diverting funds failed. She also defended the move by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., to demand President Donald Trump's tax returns for six years.

While the president and the White House have sought to label the fencing as "New Wall" in line with the president's promises during his presidential campaign, planning for the section was identified as a priority as far back as 2009 under President Obama's administration before it was funded and constructed after Trump took office. Also this week, Trump called for drastically tightening USA asylum law to discourage the Central American migrants.

"Since our founding, this country has been a place of refuge - a safe haven for people fleeing tyranny, oppression and violence", Newsom said in a statement.

Despite Trump´s insistence that he had not climbed down on the border closure threat, his shift to threatening tariffs instead was clearly a major retreat.
