Trump calls for deporting illegal immigrants with 'no judges or court cases'By Sarah N. Lynch and Doina Chiacu WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Sunday that people who enter the United States illegally should be sent back immediately to where they came from without any judicial process, likening them to invaders who are trying to "break into" the country. When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came," Trump said Sunday on Twitter. Strong Borders, No Crime!" It was unclear if Trump was advocating an expansion of the current law that allows expedited removal of illegal immigrants at the U.S. border, a policy his administration has embraced since he took office.

Supreme Court poised to rule on Trump travel ban, other casesThe U.S. Supreme Court, winding down its nine-month term, will issue rulings this week in its few remaining cases including a major one on the legality of President Donald Trump's ban on people from five Muslim-majority nations entering the country.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said late on Saturday it had a "well coordinated" process in place - in the face of criticism from lawyers for parents and children who have said they have seen little evidence of an organized system. A total of 522 children had already been reunited with parents, the agency added in a fact sheet published three days after Trump ended his policy of separating families on the U.S.-Mexico border, after images of youngsters in cages triggered outrage at home and abroad.
