Bridgewater (US): United States President Donald Trump said there are 'consequences when people cross our border illegally' and claimed many who do so are 'using children for their own sinister purposes.'
Trump's tweet on Sunday came several days after the government said more than 1,800 children separated at the US-Mexico border have been reunited with parents and sponsors after a federal judge ordered the reunions.
Hundreds of children still remain separated.
Following a day of relative silence on Twitter, Trump says: "Please understand, there are consequences when people cross our border illegally, whether they have children or not — and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes."
He also says Congress must fix "the DUMBEST & WORST immigration laws anywhere in the world!" and urges voters to "Vote 'R'" in November.
