White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders asserted on Monday that undocumented immigrants could receive “due process” even if they are deported without seeing an immigration judge.
During Monday’s White House press briefing, Sanders was asked about President Donald Trump’s Sunday rant on Twitter that called for immigrants to be deported without “judges” or “court cases.”
“Virtually all Americans agree that it makes no sense that an illegal alien sets one foot on American soil and then they would go through a three to five year judicial process to be removed from the country,” Sanders complained, noting that undocumented immigrants could be removed without seeing a judge through “voluntary removal” and “expedited removal.”
“Just because you don’t see a judge doesn’t mean you aren’t receiving due process,” she added. “We’d like to have secure borders. The democrats are the ones that want open borders.”

Trump just humiliated his own son with an absurd tweet about Greenland
President Donald Trump confirmed multiple reports this weekend when he said that he does, indeed, hope to buy Greenland and make it part of the United States.
Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen has said that the country, which is part of the Kingdom of Denmark, is “not for sale”: “Greenland belongs to Greenland.” Which should be the end of the story. Unfortunately, it’s not.
On Monday, Trump sent the following tweet, apparently trying to quell suspicions that the president just regards Greenland as another place to expand his business empire:
