President Donald Trump again called for ending due process rights for immigrants and their children to fix laws he derided as "insane."


The president tweeted out an angry demand Thursday morning to end the current deportation process and simply force migrant families to leave the U.S.

"Congress must pass smart, fast and reasonable Immigration Laws now," the president tweeted. "Law Enforcement at the Border is doing a great job, but the laws they are forced to work with are insane."

"When people, with or without children, enter our Country," he continued, "they must be told to leave without our Country being forced to endure a long and costly trial. Tell the people 'OUT,' and they must leave, just as they would if they were standing on your front lawn. Hiring thousands of 'judges' does not work and is not acceptable - only Country in the World that does this!"

In fact, fewer than 400 judges currently hear immigration cases, and the U.S. process for those court cases are similar to many other nations in Europe and elsewhere.

"Congress - FIX OUR INSANE IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW!" Trump tweeted in conclusion.
