Trump renews threat to close Mexican border, send more troops

President Trump on Wednesday reiterated his threat to close part of the southern border and send more ’armed soldiers’ to defend it if Mexico did not block a new caravan of migrants. US officials were quoted saying they are expecting a request from the DHS in the coming days for additional troops. About 5,000 active duty and National Guard troops already are at the border.

US troops should have Rules of Engagement that state they are to use deadly force if threatened on the US border. There is zero reason why they should have surrendered!

While the Dems keep up their idiotic investigations, our nation drowns in a sea of illegals. We will remember this in 2020!

what's his batting average right now with the Mexican border? still waiting on Mexico paying for the wall, all of these prayer mats that are supposedly strewn all over the midwest, and that the people trying to cross are murderers rapists and some, he supposes, are good people (actually lower crime rate than US citizens, overall).

Truth is we should only be considering asylum for Mexicans. If they are from South America they need to go through the Mexican assylum process.
