Under current Trump administration policy, all all undocumented immigrants caught entering the country are referred for criminal prosecution as part of a tightened "zero-tolerance" policy announced in May by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
It was another twist in an already head-spinning series of developments on immigration after the president reversed a policy last week that had resulted in the separation of more than 2,300 children from their families.
"We can not allow all of these people to invade our country", Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday. "When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back to where to came from".
It was unclear if Trump was advocating an expansion of the current law that allows expedited removal of illegal immigrants at the United States border, a policy his administration has embraced since he took office.
President Trump tweeted on Sunday that the USA immigration system is "laughed at all over the world" and is "very unfair" to individuals using legal avenues to gain entry. Immigration must be based on merit - we need people who will help to Make America Great Again! "I didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated".

Trump has said he does not want to see families separated, but noted that he was encouraged to fix the situation on the border at the urging of first lady Melania Trump and his daughter, Ivanka.
Last week, Trump signed an executive order aimed at stopping such separations.
Trump told House Republicans last week that he was "100 percent" behind the effort but tweeted days later that they were "wasting their time" voting before the midterm elections. "These aren't people, these are animals, and we're taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that's never happened before". "The president's suggestion that there is a ton of process for these individuals is simply wrong".
His proposal drew immediate criticism from legal analysts and immigrant rights advocates who said it would violate the U.S. Constitution's due process provision, which applies to citizens and non-citizens alike.

The legislation also calls for the creation of more shelters to house families together.
Still, Trump has rejected calls for additional immigration judges at the border, instead calling for strong security and a border wall. "You wouldn't believe how bad these people are". They do that. They have to do that.
"We don't want judges, we want security on the border", Trump said. "This is insane what we are doing".
