( - Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) said Wednesday that President Donald Trump has the constitutional authority to enforce immigration laws.

He added that since illegal immigration is against the law, you must enforce the law until you change that law.




“Yes,” Kennedy replied.

“Illegal immigration is illegal, and if you believe in the rule of law, you enforce the law until you change the law - if you change the law.”

A 2017 study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) found that illegal immigrants cost the American taxpayer — on net — $116 billion a year.
