U.S. President Donald Trump has visited the U.S. Border Patrol Calexico Station, a crossing point between the United States and Mexico.
In a room full of Border Patrol agents, congressmen and members of his administration, Trump praised the progress made keeping people out of the country by way of the border wall in the area.
“The system is full,” Trump said of the nation’s immigration system. “We have to say, ‘We’re sorry, we can’t take you.’ We’re going to look at that and look at it very, very strongly.”
The president said people want to enter the U.S. for one of two reasons. “Part of it is because of the fact that the country is doing so well, and part of it’s just a scam,” he said. “People want to come in and they shouldn’t be coming in. Gang members, lots of others.”
