Trump on Immigration Policy: ‘It’s Called, ‘I’m Sorry You Can’t Come In”

President Donald Trump reportedly said Tuesday that current United States immigration policy is a “hodgepodge of laws” but that it should simply be “you can’t come in.”

“It’s so simple,” the president reportedly said. “It’s called, ‘I’m sorry you can’t come in.'”

Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Jacobs said Trump made the remarks during a meeting with Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), and Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Reps. Scott Taylor (R-Va.) and Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-N.J.), and others who the reporter said were “mostly appropriations sub-committee chairs.”

Trump’s comments come just after the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold the president’s controversial travel ban, saying that Trump has the constitutional authority to implement a travel ban due to national security.

Jacobs said that during the meeting, President Trump was asked whether or not he plans to move forward with the travel ban.

“Of course,” he reportedly said, noting that the Supreme Court is the “final word” on the issue.

Some lawmakers, like Rep. Richard Neal (D-Mass.), said that the judge’s decision to cement the president’s ban is equivalent to endorsing discrimination.

Other lawmakers have backed the ruling, though they do not necessarily back the ban itself or think that it will help “win the war on terrorism.”

“I think they did rule correctly in terms of the Constitution,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) told IJR. “I still don’t think the travel ban is wise — whatever iteration of it, particularly the first one.”
