The US President took to Twitter and where he shared the shock announcement with his 53Million followers where he dubbed the current immigration law put in place by former president Barack Obama a “mockery”.
Mr Trump raged: “We cannot allow all of these people to invade our country. “When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no judges or court Cases, bring them back from where they came.
“Our system is a mockery to good immigration policy and law and order.
“Most children come without parents.
“Our Immigration policy, laughed at all over the world, is very unfair to all of those people who have gone through the system legally and are waiting on line for years!”
He added: “Immigration must be based on merit – we need people who will help to Make America Great Again!”
Mr Trump’s tweet comes just two days after he seemingly answered calls to scrap his immigration policy that in the six weeks since it came into force saw more than 2,000 kids detained.
Pictures showing youngsters in cages under tin foil blankets handed to them to keep them warm while their parents were prosecuted for entering the US illegally shocked the world and triggered pleas to Mr Trump to overhaul the enforcement.
He appeared to come around to the idea and said he wanted to reunite broken families as First Lady Melania flew to Texas to meet with those affected.
Mr Trump said at the time: “Ivanka feels very strongly, my wife feels very strongly about it, I feel very strongly about it.
“I think anybody with a heart would feel very strongly about it. We don’t like to see families separated.”
Mr Trump’s team blamed the Barack Obama administration for failing migrant children with Attorney General Jeff Sessions slamming critics who fault the policy.
He said: “Word got out about this loophole, with predictable results.
“The number of aliens illegally crossing with children between our ports of entry went from 14,000 to 75,000 — that’s a five-fold increase — in just the last four years.”
