POTUS TWEETS: Trump Threatens to Close Border in Response to Wave of Caravans

The President is threatening a closure of the southern border if mass migration from Central America isn’t deterred.

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.

Greyhound Gives Amnesty to Illegal Immigrant Riders, Bans Immigration Checks on Their Buses

They have caved to the leftists.

Published

on

Greyhound has announced that they will not permit immigration checks on their buses any longer, effectively giving amnesty for illegals who are using their services to evade ICE and federal enforcement.

“Our primary concern is the safety of our customers and team members, and we are confident these changes will lead to an improved experience for all parties involved,” the company said. “We plan to begin the implementation of these changes immediately.”

Previously, Greyhound had allowed U.S. Customs and Border Protection to come aboard their buses and perform immigration checks. Far-left groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) had criticized their policy, saying it harmed the constitutional rights of the individuals in the country illegally.

“We are pleased to see Greyhound clearly communicate that it does not consent to racial profiling and harassment on its buses,” said Andrea Flores, who works as the deputy director of policy for the ACLU’s Equality Division, to the AP. “By protecting its customers and employees, Greyhound is sending a message that it prioritizes the communities it serves.”

Liberal state attorney generals had threatened Greyhound with lawsuits if they kept allowing immigration enforcement on their buses. Far-left Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson is thrilled that his threats made the company capitulate.

“Today’s announcement from Greyhound confirms what should have been obvious to the company since I contacted them a year ago – it has both the power and the responsibility to stand up for its customers, who suffered for far too long from Greyhound’s indifference to CBP’s suspicion-less bus raids and harassment,” Ferguson said in his statement responding to the change in Greyhound’s policy.

President Trump had changed a policy from the Obama administration that relaxed enforcement of immigration law due to concerns over “racial profiling.” Under Obama, agents were forced to stay away from train and bus stations, which are common hubs for illegals, unless they found “actionable intelligence” about an alien, and their actions had to be directly approved from Border Patrol headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Trump gave immigration officers more discretion to enforce the law in order to remedy the national emergency that has resulted from the border being flooded by waves of third-world migrants.

“The U.S. Border Patrol conducts regular outreach with transportation companies to foster good working relationships,” the Border Patrol said in a statement earlier this month.

Left-wing groups will stop at nothing to replace Americans with third-world foreigners who will vote Democrat and usher in a new era of socialism. It may be time for these subversive, anti-American entities to lose their tax-exempt status, or be ejected from the country, like Hungary Prime Minister Viktor Orban did with the Soros network in his nation.
