Trump: Immigration policy should just be ‘you can’t come in’

President Trump reportedly said on Tuesday that the country’s immigration policy should simply be: “You can’t come in.”

“It’s so simple. It’s called, ‘I’m sorry you can’t come in,’ ” a Bloomberg News reporter quoted the president saying to congressional members on Tuesday.

Trump’s remarks arrive shortly after the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling to uphold the president’s travel ban, saying Trump has broad discretion to suspend people’s entry into the country.  

When asked by reporters if he plans to move forward with the travel ban, the president reportedly said: “Of course.” The Supreme Court is the “final word.” 

The Trump administration’s travel ban policy has been met with opposition from both sides of the aisle. 

Democratic Reps. Keith Ellison (Minn.) and André Carson (Ind.), who are Muslim, slammed the ruling on Tuesday, in conjunction with other Democratic lawmakers. 

Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) also spoke out against the Supreme Court’s decision and urged the Trump administration to end the “misguided” policy.
