President Trump Considers Closing Southern Border…

Earlier today President Trump tweeted out the possibility of closing the Southern U.S. border if congress cannot find a solution to funding border security.  Sounds good….

I’m not sure if even President Trump realizes how much support there would be for this approach.  Mexico would be lighting up the switchboards in DC if that happened.  The Mexican economy is entirely dependent on access.

    Financially the wall is a no-brainer..
    Pay for the wall or pay for a never-ending stream of illegals and all the never-ending cost associated with them. It will only go one way, up and up forever…
    I think even that new socialist congresswoman with the 3 names can understand that.

    If he closes the border, he needs to require full funding of the wall to reopen. No compromise.

      I can get behind that. Recommend he remind Americans (and illegals) that if illegals tended to vote R instead of Dem there would be NO issue with an insecure border.

      If he does an address to the nation he might as well lay it ALL out, cost to the half of the country that pays taxes, cultural incompatibility, crime, loss of American jobs… . Do not waste the opportunity.

      Oh yeah, while he’s at it, announce an executive order instituting E-Verify. Don’t want the CoC left out.

        The cultural “incompatibility” takes two generations to resolve, as I have seen in my own family – Italian immigrants, circa 1910, and the families of immigrants with whom I have worked. The language barrier is an enormous hurdle in addition, but not exclusive to, the cultural blending issue. I am a language geek as well as the grandchild of grandparent immigrants. I know exactly what comprises assimilation. The libtards frothing at the mouth for open borders are beyond clueless. They will be the most surprised of everyone when they are unable to function successfully in their own country.

        You cannot sustain a true Constitutional Republic with millions of people who have no experience with the concept. This is why the U.S. shut down immigration for several decades following the great wave of European immigration to this continent – into this country – to make room and time for immigrant families to assimilate: linguistically and culturally. The importance of the language component cannot be over estimated.

        It’s going to be a hoot for me when the nutcases beating their breasts for no restraints on immigration find themselves surrounded, in their own regions, by people who neither speak English, nor consent to learn English language skills. On the other hand, I’ll be fine.

          It came as quite a shock to the libs when in their push for ESL in the last century, English as a Second Language, they ran into a road block. Seemed it was extremely difficult for people to learn how to speak, read and write a second language when they couldn’t even read and write in their native tongue. Even speaking the native tongue was not what you would call “educated.” All was ignorance on both sides of the coin.

        And Do not forget the REASON for the mass migration… TO REMOVE ATLAN from the USA! Trump really needs to address La Raza as a anti-American NAZI organization.

        La Raza was formed by a Hitler paid American hater. Jose Vasconcelos who died in 1982, is the Nazi Propagandist behind La Raza Mexican nationalism. Like Soros, Jose was on the Nazi German payroll during WWII. La Raza, Spanish mexicans, with a dash of indian is the Mexican equivalent of the Nazi “aryan” Race. La Raza Cosmica is the Mexican equivalent of Hitlers Mein Kemp written during the same time period.

      If AMLO says no, the southern border gets closed, Mexico’s economy gets wrecked and the U.S. Military builds the Wall.

    – Gives Mexico money to help them keep all the asylum seekers in Mexico

  31. If you see the story Sundance posted after this one, this comment will make more sense.

    If the Southern border had been closed already, there would be at least one more American alive today. A man that loved this country so much, that he legally emigrated to this great country. And this legal immigrant loved this country so much, that he became a police officer to give back to this country. And he ended up giving back his all to this country. He gave his life to help keep us safe.

    To the true enemies of this country…to the true haters…to the Democrats that want to see this country destroyed by having open borders..you caused this fine American’s death. You are just as guilty of murder as the illegal scum that pulled the trigger. You have declared war on this great nation, and I for one will gladly respond to your challenge and fight you to the death. Fight you until you are completely destroyed.

    To the Newman, California Police Department, our hearts grieve for you. Our tears are for your loss. Our prayers are for Officer Ronil Singh’s family. Please let us search out what we can do to help. Nothing will take away the pain, but maybe, just maybe, we can help to bring a little peace to a family and department devastated by this preventable tragedy.

    I believe he is clearly posturing to announce his authority to build the wall, and it will be funded by already appropriated funds over which he has discretionary authority.

    Why are these invaders at the border still being dumped by bus across America?

    Someone I know who travels frequently, has encountered this scenario TWICE in recent weeks. During stops for gas… 2 busses full of Hispanic passengers (most all men) pulled in to the same facility. After making food purchases, they returned to the bus. None were speaking English.

    Both times this occurred on exits just off I-10, heading East thru Louisiana, towards Baton Rouge. No idea where they ultimately were heading. But given the recent reports of ICE transporting illegals by bus, & just dropping them off (100+) in various localities– it was obvious what he was witnessing.🤨
