President Trump is threatening to close the border if Mexico refuses to cooperate with immigration enforcement. The Daily Caller reports:
President Donald Trump tweeted early Thursday morning that he “may close the Southern Border” and that “Mexico is doing NOTHING to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants to our country.”
Trump insisted that Mexico and a host of other Central American nations are “all talk and no action” while they “have taken our money for years” and “the Dems don’t care, such BAD laws.”
The president was apparently prompted to issue the warning following reports on Wednesday that the U.S.-Mexico border is at a “breaking point” due to the ever-increasing number of immigrants trying to come into the United States.
The amount of illegal immigrants coming to the El Paso, Texas, Border Patrol station is over capacity; hundreds of people are being accommodated in the parking lot.
This is a necessary step to secure the border and the flow of crime.
