President Donald J. Trump publicly roasted Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) in front of the media in a White House meeting Tuesday morning.

During the meeting, which included House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Vice President Michael R. Pence, Pelosi and Schumer first sparred over how to deal with border security in the context of a government shutdown before Trump took over the conversation and dominated Schumer.

Schumer started by blaming Trump for the last government shutdown, which the pair disagreed on, but Trump then said he’d happily shut it down again if it meant border security for the American people.

“You know what I’ll say? Yes – If we don’t get what we want, one way or the other, whether it’s through military, through anything you want to call it, I will shut down the government, absolutely,” Trump said.

“And I am proud – I’ll tell you what – I am proud to shut down the government for border security because the people of this country don’t want criminals, and people that have lots of problems, and drugs pouring into our country,” Trump continued.

“So I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it. The last time you shut it down, it didn’t work. I will take the mantle of shutting it down. And I will shut it down for border security,” he finished.

Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June

They’re infiltrating the borders again.

Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.

Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.

Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.

Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
