Trump at Border Security Roundtable: Our New Statement is ‘We Can’t Take You Anymore, Our Country Is Full’

President Donald Trump spoke today at a border security roundtable in California and reiterated that there’s a “big emergency” at the border they need to address.

“I’m totally willing to close the border,” he said, “but Mexico over the last four days they have done more than they have ever done… They’re apprehending people now by the thousands and bringing them back to their countries, bringing them back to where they came from.”

At one point he shared what “our new statement” is:

“The system is full. We can’t take you anymore. Whether it’s asylum, whether it’s anything you want, it’s illegal migration, we can’t take you anymore. Our country is full, our area’s full, the sector is full. We can’t take you anymore, I’m sorry, can’t happen. So turn around, that’s the way it is.”
