US President Donald Trump held a campaign rally at Williamsport Regional Airport in Montoursville, Pennsylvania, on Monday, to drum up support for Republican state Representative Fred Keller ahead of the 2019 Pennsylvania's 12th congressional district special election.
Trump said, "Our country is full. We don't want people coming up here. Our country is full.
We want Mexico to stop. We want all of them to stop. Our country is packed to the gills. We don't want them coming up."
The US president lashed out at Democrats over their stance on immigration, blaming them for "overburdening" public resources. He stressed that "Democrat-backed policies have left our borders overrun, our detention facilities overwhelmed - as fast as we build them, they fill up - and our hospitals, schools and public resources overburdened."
Trump also condemned what he described as "treason" over scrutiny of his 2016 presidential campaign, saying, "It was treason, and it should never be allowed to happen to another president again."
