President Donald Trump told the head of border police that he would be pardoned if he ended up in jail for a policy to keep immigrants out of the law, according to the latest explosive report on Trump's immigration bomb.

Trump told the linesman that he would forgive him if he ever went to jail because he would refuse US access to migrants, the report said, saying the comment was paraphrased.
President Trump told Border Patrol chief Kevin McAleenan that he would forgive him if he ever ended up in jail for having to keep immigrants out of the country, according to an explosive report
Trump dangled the offer during his visit last week to the border town of Calexico, amid a looming high-level staff make-up and the president's demand to stop a stream of illegal immigrants and asylum seekers coming to Mexico.
The network brought the report to the attention of two officials who were informed about the exchange and said it was unclear whether it was intended as a joke.
Trump met McAleenan during a border visit, where he cursed immigration and the nation & # 39; full & # 39; stated.
Trump designated McAleenan as action head of the Homeland Security department after the reported interview

President Trump spoke to McAleenan during a visit where he & # 39; full & # 39; stated
The president participated in a round table discussion on immigration and border security at the US border patrol kalexico station, saying that the US & # 39; vol & # 39; vol and cannot withstand a continuous influx of illegal immigrants and asylum seekers
Trump made a series of comments during the event where he called for crackdown, a & # 39; emergency & # 39; who mentioned the asylum application and otherwise assumed a difficult attitude.
& # 39; The system is full. I can't take you anymore. Whether it is asylum or something you want, it is illegal immigration. We can't catch you anymore, Trump said. & # 39; We can't take you. Our country is full. Our area is full. The sector is full. I can't take you anymore, sorry. Can't happen. So turn around. That's the way it is, & he said.
After mentioning the Border Patrol at the event, Trump mentioned backstage conversations, in which he expressed a touch of defaitism about the existing laws.
& # 39; And I told some of the people earlier: if it's full, you can't do anything about it. We have some terrible judicial decisions that have been taken over the years. It is very unfair and it is. & # 39;
& # 39; But the system is full. And when it is full, you can no longer do anything. You have to say, "I'm sorry, we can't take you." We are trying to take people and I don't agree. We tried to take people in and you can't do it. You can't do it. So we are going to look at that and we will look at it very, very strong, & # 39; Trump said.
Trump named McAleenan Acting Head of Homeland Security after he Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen. However another officer was in line for the slot and also cleared her post.
As acting head, he does not need a Senate Confirmation, although he may have to testify before Congress about budget matters or as his role as head of the Border Patrol. This would give lawmakers the opportunity to ask him about the swap under oath.
The report came when Trump confirmed a report that he is considering a plan to bring illegal immigrants to & # 39; sanctuary cities & # 39; aimed at political rivals who have criticized his immigration policy.
