US President Donald Trump sharpened his call to deport people who enter the United States illegally on Sunday, saying they should immediately be sent back to where they came from without any judicial process.
"Can not accept all of the people trying to break into our Country", he tweeted.
Mr. Trump said they should be deported with "no Judges or Court Cases".
It was unclear if Trump was advocating an expansion of the current law that allows expedited removal of illegal immigrants at the USA border, a policy his administration has embraced since he took office.
Trump buckled to the pressure on Wednesday, issuing an executive order that ended the separations but the government has yet to reunite more than 2000 children with their parents. Nor did Trump differentiate between illegal immigrants and people who entered the USA to seek asylum protection.
Indian-Americans, most of whom are highly skilled and came to the U.S. mainly on H-1B work visas, are the worst sufferers of the current immigration system which imposes a seven percent per country quota on allotment of green cards or permanent legal residency. The White House struggled to defend the policy in the wake of backlash like the kind seen in the aftermath of the travel ban on people from Muslim-majority countries.
Last week, the Trump administration's family separation policy sparked a national outcry.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) has repeatedly criticized the president but largely voted for his legislative agenda.
The Mexico-US border city of Tornillo, Texas became a crossroads where hundreds of protestors voiced their concerns, anger and frustration at the Trump administration's policy that separated kids from their parents, according to CNN.

Wisconsin GOP Sen. Ron Johnson said Sunday the laws and practices of the U.S. have encouraged undocumented immigration to levels the nation can not handle.
"We're going to have strong, very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families together", Trump told reporters in the Oval Office prior to signing the directive.
Political opponents will be furious that that's even been suggested but President Trump clearly believes his supporters back his hardline stance.
"We are the only people, people walk in and put a foot in, 'Please, would you like to register?' Other countries say get the hell out of here".
In Saturday's fact-sheet, the DHS said some 522 children so far have been reunited with their families so far by border patrol authorities.
The Port Isabel detention centre in Texas will serve as "the primary family reunification and removal centre" for adults in ICE custody, the statement said.
In all, about 17 percent of the 12,000 or so minors held in HHS-funded facilities were separated from their parents or guardians at the border. "We asked the commission to immediately require the USA government to reunite these families and stop this inhumane and illegal practice".
In the meantime, officials have issued conflicting signals over the state of the administration's policy and some parents have said they don't yet know where there children are.
