Trump pushed to close El Paso border

President Trump has been pushing to reinstate broader family separation policies and sought to close the US-Mexico border at El Paso, Texas. As per one attendee, in a meeting two weeks ago at the Oval Office with top officials, Trump was ’ranting and raving, saying border security was his issue’. Trump ordered Nielsen to shut down the port of El Paso. Nielsen called this a bad and dangerous idea.

Good, if that means stopping illegals. Fact: Criminals get separated from their family and crossing the border illegally is a crime.

Something has to get it in these migrants heads. You’re illegals. This isn’t the way to do it.

If they don’t have any kind of proof these kids are in-fact theirs, the boarder patrol have to assume the possibly of these children being trafficked. I don’t know about anyone else, but I would rather roll on the side of caution and keep them all separated until we get some kid of proof ( blood work, birth certificates, etc).

Time to shut the border! And lets make it a felony to invade the US territory so that once it is done application to immigrate is automatically denied! these damned criminals need to learn to follow the process just like everyone else around the world who wants to emigrate to the US and definitely should not be rewarded for cutting to the front of the line and then breaking US law!

I cant wait to find the new and interesting ways he separates parents from their children! (sarcasm). Hes a god dam monster, these people are human beings who are seeking a better life, which is the same story for the ancestors of 99% of the people living in the United States today. I agree the system is broken but the way to fix it isnt by closing the border (which will wreck the economy) but to put more money in the immigration apparatus (like ports of entry and immigration lawyers) so most migrants can go through the system faster and the U.S. government can actually vet those people.
