Trump drew a line in the sand at the border that will make liberals furious
The caravan of illegals has arrived at our Southern border.
Leftists want to open our borders, but President Trump isn’t having it.
Trump just drew a big line in the sand at the border that will make liberals furious.
First, Trump placed thousands of U.S. troops on the border to aid Border Patrol.
Then, he refused to accept the flood of illegal immigrants from Mexico without running proper background checks on asylum seekers.
Now, Trump has authorized U.S. troops to use lethal force to defend themselves and has stated he is willing to shut down the border to defend our national security.
President Donald Trump said Thursday that he’s signed an order to close the U.S. border with Mexico, adding that he’s authorized troops to use lethal force against migrants who attempt to enter the U.S.
“If they have to,” Trump told reporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, claiming without evidence that at least 500 criminals are among migrants trying to enter the U.S. “So I’m not going to let the military be taken advantage of. I have no choice. Do I want that to happen? Absolutely not. But you’re dealing with rough people.”
He also said that he would welcome a partial shutdown of the government over “border security.”
Trump said he had signed the order two days ago and that “I’ve already shutdown parts of the border.” He warned that the entire border may be closed if conflict with migrants escalates.
This news comes as Border Patrol mourns the loss of Rogelio Martinez, a Border Patrol agent who died last weekend.
A spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council stated that Martinez and his partner were “ambushed” by illegals.
Pro-open borders politicians are whipping their extreme base to a frenzy.
They think we should just allow anyone and everyone into the country – no questions asked.
But as President Trump pointed out, there are many known dangerous criminals who have embedded themselves in the caravan.
