Nancy Pelosi files lawsuit to block Trump border wall

"I think the president is always going to be quick to declare a victory even when he didn't have a hand in the fight", Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) said Friday before the border visit.

The Trump administration sent a notice to members of Congress on Thursday, informing them that Vitiello's nomination to lead ICE has been rescinded, according to sources who spoke with The Associated Press.

Mr Trump told journalists "our country is full" and declared the United States immigration system was overburdened and illegal crossings must be stopped immediately. "Our country is full", he said at a meeting with border patrol officers and other officials in Calexico, California.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Monday that the administration will expedite the return of migrants to Mexico and speed up plans to deploy additional personnel to the border.

As the president showed off the renovated section of the barrier to reporters, a balloon depicting Trump as a baby floated further down the border. We can't take you anymore. On the U.S. side, dozens of people lined the road that Trump's motorcade took from the airport, demonstrating support for his policies.

A statement from the Southern Border Communities Coalition called Trump's visit "trite political theater to extract more funds to fulfill his obsession with building deadly walls".

Trump is determined to pursue a hard line.

"I'm totally willing to close the border but Mexico over the last four days has done more than they've ever done", Trump said in Calexico.

"I'll do it", he said.

Though Mr Trump, who has pulled a series of about-faces in recent days, walked away from this threat to close the border, he still intends to highlight conditions at the boundary with Mexico. "And a lot of things are happening".

Meanwhile, 20 states have filed a motion to block Trump's attempts to divert federal funds through an emergency declaration, New York Attorney General Letitia James, a Democrat, said on Friday.

The idea caused alarm among economists and Congress, including in Trump's Republican Party.

"This policy chaos, coupled with a sense that the US government may at some point really shut down the border, has generated an urgency to migrate now while it is still possible", he said.

Despite Trump´s insistence that he had not climbed down on the border closure threat, his shift to threatening tariffs instead was clearly a major retreat.

However, some complained that it was unclear if he meant it both for the drug smuggling and migration, or whether he wanted the migration issue resolved immediately.

"They're apprehending people now by the thousands and bringing them back to their countries, bringing them back to where they came from".

But suggesting that he wants immediate results, he added that "maybe by the end of this news conference or tomorrow that will stop, and if that stops, we are doing a big tariff".

White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney on Sunday said on ABC News' "This Week" that it would take "something dramatic" for Trump to back down on his threat.
