President Donald Trump on Wednesday said mass migration in Europe has created a "total mess" on the continent, warning that immigration advocates in the U.S. will regret their position — just as, he claimed without evidence, Europeans do.
"For those who want and advocate for illegal immigration, just take a good look at what has happened to Europe over the last 5 years," Trump tweeted. "A total mess! They only wish they had that decision to make over again."
Europe has seen a surge in migrants, including refugees and asylum seekers from Africa and the Middle East, over the past five years that has put a strain on countries like Greece and Italy that sit along the southern border of the European Union.
