Trump Makes Insane Threat
Shut US-Mexico Border

Actually, this is one of the smartest things Trump has ever suggested although it is not the first time he has suggested shutting the US-Mexico border. Today, President Donald Trump threatened to seal the US-Mexican border, claiming in a tweet that America’s southern neighbor is allowing illegal immigrants to cross unhindered.
Which, well is actually true for the most part, they are “attempting” to thwart the crossings, and by attempting, it’s more or less half-assed.
“May close the Southern Border!” Trump proclaimed in a tweet today.
“Mexico is doing NOTHING to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants to our Country. They are all talk and no action, likewise, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years, and do Nothing. The Dems don’t care, such BAD laws,” Trump tweeted.
Some say Trump is doubling down on using immigration as his meal ticket into the 2020 election, and winning again. That may or may not be true, the reality is that the United States does not currently have the infrastructure to house the immigrants trying to get into the country, in particular those that are coming in with children.
And that does not even come close to touching the entirety of immigration issues, we are currently experiencing an influx of pregnant Russian females heading to Florida, while pregnant. They are heading to Florida to give birth so that and their offspring can stay.
If Trump is successful in shutting just the US-Mexico border, it will allow for us to really look at each immigration situation and begin to fix the things that are broken and put a plan together so as to better deal with the each situation and to better support legal immigration build a sustainable infrastructure to support it. This may sound cold but no matter where someone is from, we in the US right now do not have the space, resources or time to allow for pregnant women to give birth in this country and then suddenly because of that, decide the child is an American citizen. That is clearly taking advantage of an outdated and poorly written law and it needs to change.
And, we cannot keep just aimlessly packing people into this country, eventually we will run out of places to house everyone.
Of course Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador rejected Trump’s criticism, “We are doing something on this issue.”
“We are going to help in every way we can. We don’t in any way want a confrontation with the United States,” he said.
But Lopez Obrador said a solution would depend on “fundamentally addressing the causes of migration.” Another option would be for Trump to just suggest an invasion and let the US Military clean things up a bit then we can help the affected re-build a more how shall I say this, civilized society?
The Don is gearing up to win quite a few points because the truth is, even for many who are not part of his base or staunch supporters of Trump do in fact support closing the border and quite a few people that I have interviewed hugely support military action in an effort to stop these large influxes of immigration so that other countries can rebuild safe and more peaceful lives in their respective homelands. It’s not a racist thing at all, it’s a reality that many are seeing. The United States will not be able to sustain supporting so many immigrants and their children for the long term.
No one has to like the reality, it is what it is, liking it or not is not going to change it and disagreeing with it is a form of denial and it is not time we stopped burying our heads on the sand and blindly denying reality?
