The wave of Central American migrants trying to break into the United States illegally has forced President Donald Trump and his administration to reinforce the number of immigration officers working in processing. But he warned that this too, will have have consequences.
“We have redeployed 750 agents at the Southern Border’s specific Ports of Entry in order to help with the large scale surge of illegal migrants trying to make their way into the United States,” the president began on Twitter. He then revealed that, “this will cause traffic & commercial delays until such time as Mexico is able to use … it’s powerful common sense Immigration Laws to stop illegals from coming through Mexico into the U.S., and removing them back to their country of origin.”
Trump also stated that “until Mexico cleans up this ridiculous & massive migration, we will be focusing on Border Security, not Ports of Entry.”
Knowing that this would hurt many who did legitimate business over the border, Trump called on Democrats to join Republicans “to end the horrible, costly and foolish loopholes in our Immigration Laws. Once that happens, all will be smooth. We can NEVER allow Open Borders!”
