President Tells Migrants to 'Turn Around, That’s the Way It Is'
“Illegal migration, we can’t take you anymore. Our country is full. The sector is full. We can’t take you anymore. Turn around, that’s the way it is,” Trump announced from his short visit to an area near the border in Southern California.
“It is a colossal surge and it is overwhelming our immigration system and we can’t let that happen. The system is full. We can’t take you anymore,” the President added.
Trump also insisted he was correct when he declared a national emergency, and "everyone" knows it – even Democrats.
TRUMP: "This is our new statement- the system is full. We can't take you anymore. Whether it's asylum or anything you want - illegal immigration - we can't take you anymore. Our country is full. Our area is full. The sector is full. Can't take you anymore, I'm sorry. Turn around" pic.twitter.com/W1Bjnnf7UR

“We’re building a lot of wall. Going to see a piece of it today,” Trump said, according to The New York Post. Even the right-leaning tabloid owned by Rupert Murdoch called out Trump's false claims about "new" border construction.
"But the fence that Trump planned on touring is a 2-mile section that was a long-planned replacement for an older barrier, rather than a new wall."
