United States President Donald Trump describing immigration reform as his top precedence, revived his push for an immigration system which prevents people from entering the U.S. illegally.

"One of the highest on the list is immigration. And we have to change our laws. We have to make them sensible," Trump told reporters in a joint media appearance with King Abdullah II Bin al-Hussein of Jordan.

He further said he wants a plan of action in point where the foregone conclusion for any forbidden entryway is an exit.

"We want a system where, when people come in illegally, they have to go out. A nice simple system that works. Mexico holds people for four hours, for five hours, for two hours, and they're gone. We have people for four, five, six years and they never leave. So we want to have a great immigration," Trump said in response to a question.

Trump besides censured the Democrats, who he said, are in support of open borders and supposed that they "do not care about our military".

"What we have is very simple. We want strong borders and no crime. The Democrats want open borders and they don't care about crime, and they don't care about our military. I care about our military. That's what we want and that's what we're going to get. And we're going to get it sooner than people think," he said.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders later told reporters that about all Americans consent that it makes no sense that an illegal alien sets one foot on American soil, and that point in time they would go through a three to five-year legal procedure to be removed from the country.

"Thousands of illegal aliens are removed every month, without seeing an immigration judge, as a result of procedures in current law, including voluntary removal and expedited removal. Just because you don't see a judge doesn't mean you aren't receiving due process," she said.

"We'd like to have secure borders. The Democrats are the ones that want open borders. The president would like us to secure the borders and have a very legal and easy immigration process so people can come here the right way, not the wrong way. Ultimately, the president would like to see our border secured so that we don't have all of these problems, to begin with," she said.

Sanders said the president to prevent the crisis at the border from getting worse, is centered on securing borders and reforming the immigration system and Trump wants to halt the crime that comes into the U.S.
