In a statement, Trump said he was “deeply concerned” about the situation and pledged to veto any bill that does not fix the situation quickly.
“As president, I will not sign any bill into law that does the opposite of what Congress was asked to do by its elected representatives in the Senate,” Trump said.
“I will not allow a new bill to be passed that makes this situation worse.
I will veto any legislation that makes our immigration system worse.
The time for excuses has ended.
The President should take action to fix the problems that have developed over the past several months. “
It is clear to me that the solution to this crisis is not for Congress to pass amnesty, but for the President to do what Congress has been unwilling to do, which is to pass the necessary legislation to address this crisis and protect American workers and their families.
The President should take action to fix the problems that have developed over the past several months.
He should also immediately send the Senate a bill that addresses these problems.
It is imperative that Congress pass a bipartisan solution, and I will do everything in my power to make that happen.”
