Donald Trump says family separations deter illegal immigration

President Donald Trump talks with reporters as he reviews border wall prototypes in San Diego

President Donald Trump said migrant families may think twice about illegally crossing the USA border from Mexico if they fear they'll be separated by the U.S. government, suggesting he's rethinking a policy abandoned in July after widespread public condemnation.

"He basically said, 'most portraits of me I really don't like, '" Thomas told Time. We've been very tough at the borders.

"If they feel there will be separation, they won't come", Trump said. People have to come into our country legally, not illegally.

The US president further said: "What I want is merit. And part of the reason, I have to blame myself, the economy is so strong that everybody wants to come into the United States", he said in the interview. This hasn't happened for 35 years.

"We have people that are trying to get into our country because of how well our country is doing", Trump said. We want people that are going to help us.

Opposing chain migration, Trump said, "If that's a bad policy, then guess what, a lot of bad things are going to happen". I would say a vast majority of our country agrees.

In June, Trump abandoned his policy of separating immigrant children from their parents on the U.S. -Mexico border after images of youngsters in cages sparked outrage at home and overseas. On Friday, a report in The Washington Post said the White House was considering plans to separate parents and children at the border, in a bid to decrease the numbers of families attempting to cross illegally into the US.

A day early at a rally in Kentucky, Trump accused the Democrats of supporting a policy that lets illegal immigrants come in. Senior administration officials noted, however, that they are not planning to revive the chaotic forced separations carried out by the Trump administration in May and June that spawned an enormous political backlash and led to a court order to reunite families.
