The president has also been declaring protections for so-called Dreamer immigrants "dead", accusing Democrats of allowing "open borders, drugs and crime" and warning Mexico to halt the passage of "caravans" of immigrants or risk USA abandonment of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Donald Trump has vowed to send the U.S. military to secure the Mexican border until his promised "big, beautiful" border wall is built.
He called the measure a "big step".
"The United States is not going to militarize the southern border".
Vladimir Putin demands thorough nerve agent attack probe
The former general said Russian President Vladimir Putin is "the last guy to benefit" from the spy poisoning. He argued that experts have said that such nerve agents could have been made in some 20 countries.
Trump also spoke of a known caravan of migrants headed through Mexico toward the border at this moment, and demanded the caravan stop moving through a series of heated tweets.
"The unprecedented number of Central Americans who have joined the current refugee caravan and the high percentage of people fleeing Honduras in the group are the result of multiple political crises in the region provoked in large part by the policies of the US government", the statement noted.
On Tuesday, Mr. Trump warned that "the big Caravan of People from Honduras" must be stopped before it gets to the border.
Trump has struggled to secure funding for his central campaign promise of a wall, which the administration and border officials say will cost approximately $20-25 billion.
Spurred on by right wing media, Trump has leapt on the "caravan" as evidence of the need for a border wall. President Donald Trump wrote in a series of sometimes-misleading tweets, fired off after returning from a holiday weekend spent in Florida with several immigration hardliners. The organizers, however, said many members of the group will continue marching north towards the US-Mexico border where, if they claim asylum and are with a family unit, they legally must be released into the interior of the country. While I was on a reporting trip to the Rio Grande Valley last month, Border Patrol agents told me that when unaccompanied minors began showing up in large numbers in 2014, it swamped their resources and left vast stretches of the border un-monitored.
Israel cancels United Nations deal on African migrants
He added: "We do not have a contract, any understanding, formal or informal, with Israel for them to dump their refugees here". After meeting with angry residents of south Tel Aviv on Tuesday, Netanyahu says he reconsidered after hearing their concerns.
He said he would be meeting with Mattis and other security officials to discuss the issue soon.
A top Honduran official on Tuesday rejected Trump's threat to cut USA foreign aid unless the caravan is blocked.
The president also complained on Twitter that border patrol agents can't do their jobs properly because of "ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws" that allow people caught for being in the country illegally to be released while they await a hearing before a federal immigration judge.
Trump sent his tweet on the fourth day of his vacation in Palm Beach, Florida, where he has been staying at his private Mar-a-Lago Club with a small coterie of aides.
The Trump administration has sharply bolstered spending on patrolling the border, and intensified crackdowns on undocumented immigrants inside the country. Mexico has said such "caravans" of mostly Central Americans, including many escaping violence in Honduras, have occurred since 2010. The "caravan" as the media has called them, was organized by an open borders group hoping to show immigrants how easy it is to break immigration laws in the United States.
