Trump promises ‘strong action’ on immigration

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is promising “strong action today” on immigration.

Trump says on Twitter: “Our Border Laws are very weak while those of Mexico & Canada are very strong. Congress must change these Obama era, and other, laws NOW! The Democrats stand in our way — they want people to pour into our country unchecked….CRIME! We will be taking strong action today.”

The president did not detail what that action would be. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump said Tuesday that wants to use the military to secure the U.S.-Mexico border until his promised border wall is erected. The White House later said Trump wanted to mobilize the National Guard.
