In a Tweet Monday, Pres. Trump called for an end to the visa lottery and chain migration. He also called for immigration measures that would increase border security, tighten asylum policy, and end sanctuary cities.
We must have Border Security, get rid of Chain, Lottery, Catch & Release Sanctuary Cities – go to Merit based Immigration. Protect ICE and Law Enforcement and, of course, keep building, but much faster, THE WALL!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 30, 2018
Pres. Trump’s tweet comes after the implementation last month of his “zero tolerance” policy, which involves prosecuting foreign national adults who entere the U.S. illegally.
