Trump Privately Told Border Agents To Violate US Law: Report

CNN’s Jake Tapper reports that President Donald Trump privately told border agents to violate U.S. law and lie to judges to stop immigrants from entering the U.S.:

President Trump told border agents to simply stop letting migrants in. Tell them, “We don’t have the capacity” he said. If judges give you trouble, say, ‘Sorry, judge, I can’t do it, we don’t have the room.’”

CNN reports that after Trump “left the room, agents sought further advice from their leaders, who told them they were not giving them that direction and if they did what the President said they would take on personal liability. You have to follow the law, they were told.”

“At the end of the day,” a senior administration official told CNN, “the President refuses to understand that the Department of Homeland Security is constrained by the laws.”
