For the second day in a row, U.S. President Donald Trump railed against illegal immigration into the country at its southern border with Mexico, contending that the U.S. “is being stolen” by the migrants.
In his new tweets Monday, Trump asked Congress to immediately pass border legislation to stop the massive inflow of drugs and people.
He urged them to do so, even if it means abandoning long-standing Senate parliamentary rules to approve a measure on a simple majority vote.
He complained about a stream of about 1,100 people marching North through Mexico to escape poverty and violence in Central America in long-shot bids to win asylum in the United States.
Trump asked Mexico to stop them at their northern border, and not allow them to pass through into the US, which has no effective border walls.
