President Donald Trump says he has to be "very strong" on immigration
LAS VEGAS (AP) —
President Donald Trump says he has to be "very strong" on immigration.
Trump spoke Saturday about immigration during an address at the Nevada GOP convention in Las Vegas. He did not mention the policy he recently rescinded that led to families and children being separated when apprehended for illegally crossing into the U.S. from Mexico. News coverage of Trump's zero-tolerance policy led to a public outcry that forced him to reverse course.
Trump says his people are "in a very difficult situation" but the immigration problem should have been solved years ago.
He made a plea for more Republicans in Congress. He called Democrats "obstructionists" and said they don't want to help solve the problem.
Says Trump: "So we're being very, very tough at the border."
