Trump Threatens To Close Sections Of US-Mexico Border Over Illegal Immigration
Donald Trump still hasn’t gotten what he wanted for his border wall, so now he’s threatening to close part or all of the southern U.S. border if Mexico does not stop illegal immigration into the U.S.
In a series of tweets Friday, the president said,
“The DEMOCRATS have given us the weakest immigration laws anywhere in the World. Mexico has the strongest, & they make more than $100 Billion a year on the U.S. Therefore, CONGRESS MUST CHANGE OUR WEAK IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW, & Mexico must stop illegals from entering the U.S….”
“…through their country and our Southern Border. Mexico has for many years made a fortune off of the U.S., far greater than Border Costs. If Mexico doesn’t immediately stop ALL illegal immigration coming into the United States throug our Southern Border, I will be CLOSING…..”
Trump said that he believes closing off border crossings, key avenues for trade with a major partner, “would be a good thing!”
“…the Border, or large sections of the Border, next week. This would be so easy for Mexico to do, but they just take our money and “talk.” Besides, we lose so much money with them, especially when you add in drug trafficking etc.), that the Border closing would be a good thing!”
It’s unclear how Trump wants Mexico to stop the flow of migrants, however, he says he’s looking to close parts of the border by next week.
