We can't take you anymore: Donald Trump to migrants

President Donald Trump visits a new section of the border wall with Mexico in Calexico, Calif., Friday April 5, 2019.

The tariffs, he suggested, would make a border closure unnecessary.

Trump's campaign released a new video attacking 2020 Democrats for dismissing what Trump calls a "crisis" at the border.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has denounced President Donald Trump's comments about getting rid of the asylum system. "Within two years we will have close to 400 miles built or under construction & keeping our Country SAFE - not easy when the Dems are always fighting to stop you!" posted the Commander-in-Chief on social media before arriving in Calexico.

Mr Trump said: "We've already built a lot of it".

At the same time, Trump proclaimed that Mexico "has been absolutely terrific for the last four days", arresting "thousands" of Central American migrants before they could reach the US border.

One person familiar with the president's thinking said that Mr. Trump believed that Mr. Vitiello did not favor closing the border, as the president had proposed before backing off that threat this week.

Trump's administration is also in the process of replacing 14 miles of fencing in San Diego County along the border with Mexico.

"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, " Representative Pete Aguilar, a California Democrat, said Friday before the border visit.

While sounding tough, Trump's surprise shift to tariffs from the previous threat to close the border is a major retreat.

That's key in this new era of "Windows as a service" when Microsoft isn't bothering to create new distinct versions of the OS. Let's be clear though - the nagging will continue, but there'll be less, and the control element is most definitely yours.

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

It's become a complete mess for trucks hauling goods from Mexico to the US, snarling transport at some of the busiest border crossings in the world.

Earlier, Trump said he would give Mexico "a one-year warning" to stop drug trafficking, or face tariffs.

It was not immediately clear what other penalties he was considering.

The southern border is almost 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometres) long and already has about 650 miles (1,050 kilometres) of different types of barriers, including short vehicle barricades and tall steel fences that go up to 30 feet (9 metres) high.

"We need to be able to detain families together for a short period of time, 4-8 weeks to go through an immigration court proceeding".

The area Mr Trump visited is "the first completed section of the new border wall along the US-Mexico border", according to the White House. He has since praised the country for doing more.

Trump argued that many migrants crossing the border illegally are making bogus asylum claims. It's a great deal, and it's very good for Mexico. "This will supersede USMCA".

In Mexico City, Economy Minister Graciela Marquez Colin urged Trump not to disrupt trade relations.
