The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility-- won't be. You look at what's happening in Europe, you look at what's happening in other places-- we can't allow that to happen to the United States. Not on my watch.
If the Democrats would sit down instead of obstructing, we could have something done very quickly. We could have an immigration bill. We could have child separation-- we're stuck with these horrible laws. They're horrible laws. What's happening is so sad, it's so sad. And it can be taken care of quickly, beautifully, and we'll have safety.
We want a merit-based immigration system so that Boeing, and Lockheed, and all of the people-- Grumman-- all of the people that are here today, the heads of every company-- so that you can hire people on a merit basis.
They're coming in. They are people that came on merit, not based on a lottery or not people that snuck across the border. But just remember, a country without borders is not a country at all.
