Mexico government slams U.S. border slowdown as 'very bad idea'

"And they won't come; you won't have so many - because if they know they can't get through, they're not going to come", he said.

American Civil Liberties Union attorney Judy Rabinovitz said in a statement, "The court strongly rejected the Trump administration's unprecedented and illegal policy of forcing asylum seekers to return to Mexico without hearing their claims".

The Fox News network is quite pro-Trump, but facts are facts, and apparently they saw this as too egregious a violation of the public trust to let go.

The Republican is pushing hard for construction of hundreds of miles of new border wall and layers of razor wire.

Trump and other USA officials have called on Congress to alter the asylum laws and address a system that is in crisis, while advocates for immigrants say many are fleeing violence and have legitimate claims.

On Sunday, Trump abruptly announced the departure of the official in charge of fighting illegal immigration - Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Trump's comments on Wednesday came as the immigration debate ramps up on the southern border and in Washington.

Senior White House adviser Stephen Miller is said to be egging on the president to adopt an increasingly hardline stance on immigration.

Outgoing Department of Homeland Security secretary Kirsten Nielsen had warned that measures such as a revised child separation policy faced significant legal obstacles, leading to clashes with the president and her eventual departure.

"There has been deliberate foot-dragging, and I think that's why you're seeing the White House take the necessary steps to clean house at DHS and put people in, hopefully, who will quickly execute what the president orders", he said.

The President wanted families separated even if they were apprehended within the US.

"You know it. We all know it".

In addition, around 10,800 people who presented themselves at ports of entry were deemed inadmissible in March, bringing the number of total border enforcement actions to above 103,000, the most for one month in more than a decade. President Obama separated children.

Donald Trump had originally dubbed the measure the "Remain in Mexico" policy. Officials have said this typically happened when authorities questioned whether the child belonged to the adult, or if a serious crime like drug smuggling was committed.

This week, Trump signaled he might try a different approach, with USA officials saying the government is considering a new policy that could again split up families at the border, but this time, the choice would be up to the parents - they could stay detained while sending their children to a family member or a legal guardian.

Speaking with reporters on Tuesday, though, Trump said he's "not looking to do it", and he sought to pin the blame on his predecessor for the uproar. More leaders were likely to depart the agency in a shakeup orchestrated by the White House to address Trump's inability to stem border crossings.

Another controversial policy of automatically returning asylum seekers to wait in Mexico was blocked Monday by a federal judge in California.
