Trump threw out several ideas to deter illegal entry into the US in the absence of Democrats willing to reform the broken asylum system

Washington Post:
Frustrated with migration surge, President Trump suggested several border security ideas, including a reptile-filled moat and shooting migrants. Staffers separated the ideas into two categories — those to be dismissed, and those to be implemented.
The Democrats have been unwilling to do anything about the asylum scam being run by economic migrants making bogus claims at the border.  The migrants have been flooding the border with the scam and it has taken some effort to deal with it.  While Trump tossed out these ideas in a brainstorming session with border security people he agreed to other efforts and eventually got a workable deal with Mexico to stem the flow.

Ultimately it is the Democrats who created the problem with the Flores settlement and there refusal to fix it.
