President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that he would consider closing the United States’ southern border with Mexico if the latter failed to assist in deterring illegal immigration.
The President tweeted about the potential policy shift, calling for changes to the country’s immigration laws that have proved susceptible to recent “caravan” mass migration from Central American nations such as Honduras and Guatemala. Trump cancelled foreign aid payments to these countries on Saturday, and a federal closing of the border would appear to be the next step.
In spite of the President’s signature campaign policy of cracking down on illegal immigration, it appears that monthly levels of migrants crossing the U.S border have reached the highest levels in a decade. Officials with Customs and Border Patrol have stated that the agency is set to apprehend more than 100,000 people at the southern border in March- the highest levels in a single month since the George W. Bush administration.
The new wave of caravan and family-unit based illegal immigration from Central America is heavily enabled by American asylum laws. Migrants arriving in the United States from these countries have commonly been willing to turn themselves in the Border Patrol, requesting legal asylum protections and setting up often lengthy and costly battles in the U.S immigration court system. These migrants often arrive in large groups.
The closure of the southern border could be a means to secure further cooperation from Mexico in deterring migrants from Central America from making the voyage to the United States. Cross-border commerce is a vital part of Mexico’s economy, and America’s southern neighbor might be willing to crack down on foreign migrants traveling through its territory if it faced the prospect of weakening an important trade relationship.
The border closure would take place sometime next week, per the President’s third tweet on the matter. Distressed communities and border security advocates will be watching closely with the hope he delivers on his pledge.
President Trump Preparing New Executive Order to Rescind DACA Amnesty After SCOTUS Decision
SCOTUS threw out the last one on procedural grounds.
White House sources have indicated that President Donald Trump is planning on signing a new executive order to terminate President Obama’s DACA amnesty program this week.
The Supreme Court had thrown out an earlier executive order to terminate the program in a court ruling last month, terminating the federal drive to enforce American immigration laws on supposed procedural inadequacies.
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows suggested that the President would soon sign a new executive order to terminate the amnesty program, while speaking on Fox and Friends on Monday morning. “Starting this week, you’ll see executive orders, you’ll see business that actually goes forward from the Oval Office when Congress doesn’t act.”
The President has spoken openly of his intention to terminate DACA a second time after the Supreme Court’s arbitrary decision. The court’s ruling had established that the President has complete authority to terminate the amnesty for a selected population of almost a million illegal immigrants, expanded by President Obama without congressional approval in 2014.

The court’s own ruling will likely prevent the judicial branch from overthrowing a second DACA termination executive order, having admitted that the federal government has every right to terminate the program that was implemented on a whim.
Liberal billionaire oligarchs such as George Soros and Charles Koch continue to fund an influence campaign to maintain the amnesty order, hoping to secure a status quo of open borders and weak immigration laws with the hopes of delivering a broad pool of affordable labor for large businesses and the American elite.
