President Trump visited the southern border in Calexico, Calif. on Friday, a day after the White House retracted its nomination of 30-year border official Ron Vitiello to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in favor of going in a "tougher" direction.
What he's saying: "It's a colossal surge and it's overwhelming our immigration system, and we can't let that happen. So, as I say, and this is our new statement: The system is full. Can't take you anymore. ... Our country is full," Trump said on Friday. Before his nomination was revoked, Vitiello was expected to join the president on the border trip.
