Trump: Upon entry, illegal immigrants must be ‘immediately’ escorted out of the US

President Trump on Saturday again called for the immediate deportation of illegal immigrants in lieu of court involvement

“When people come into our Country illegally, we must IMMEDIATELY escort them back out without going through years of legal maneuvering,” Trump tweeted. “Our laws are the dumbest anywhere in the world. Republicans want Strong Borders and no Crime. Dems want Open Borders and are weak on Crime!”

The tweet echoes what he expressed in a post last week.

“We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country,” Trump wrote. “When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came. Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and Law and Order.”

The president has repeatedly expressed that the US has “the worst immigration laws in the history of the world.”

“Other countries look at us and they say, ‘How is that possible?’ Somebody touches our land, we now take them to a court, to a judge,” Trump said in his remarks during a meeting with members of Congress on Tuesday.

“In other countries, it’s called, ’I’m sorry. You can’t come in. You have to leave,’” Trump added.

LANDSCAPING

Percent of immigrant workers: 24 
A struggle to find workers is why landscaping companies turn to visa programs. A Denver area landscape business owner said he posts ads in newspapers, on Craigslist, and on street signs for positions paying $14 to $25 an hour with health care and benefits, hiring every person who shows up -- but is lucky if any report to work, according to the Times. Offering employees $100 referral bonuses also hasn't worked.

ENGINEERING

Percent of immigrant workers: 24 
An annual list issued by Manpower showed that engineering, which includes mechanical, electrical, and civil engineers, is one of the 10 hardest jobs to fill in this country, though every engineer working in manufacturing supports 20 other jobs, according to the federal government. When engineers are in short supply, companies often outsource production to countries where there's more plentiful talent.
