Trump wants military to do border control

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump says the U.S. has "horrible" and "very unsafe" immigration laws, and he is calling on Congress to "get their act together" to change them.

Trump says during a joint press conference with the leaders of the Baltic nations that, "we don't have laws. We have catch and release."

Trump also says he spoke with Mexico and warned them to halt a caravan of mostly Honduran migrants traveling through the country. Trump has threatened to pull out of the North American Free Trade Agreement if Mexico doesn't comply.

Trump announced earlier Tuesday that he's preparing to use the military to secure the country's southern border until the wall he wants built is constructed.

He said he'll be discussing the idea with his defense secretary at a meeting later Tuesday.
