But he is using his power over the agencies to improve immigration policies and border defenses, and also is using his power as Commander-in-Chief to deploy the National Guard to the border.

Since the weekend, Trump has been tweeting and talking about border security following reports that more than 1,000 Central Americans, most from Honduras, are travelling north toward the US's southern border with the help of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a group that has organized several similar "refugee caravans" in recent years.

Regarding the cost of the deployment, Trump said the administration is "looking at it". -Mexican border to block the movement of the illegal immigrants into the country via the Mexican border. The commission also said the border has never been more secure and called it "irresponsible to deploy armed soldiers in our communities".

"Time and time again, Congress has failed to act", said Nielsen.
