Trump’s Surprising Border Announcement

President Trump has on numerous occasions said that the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border is unsustainable. Trump has also indicated that he would be willing to shut down the border in order if necessary. At least, originally. 

In a sudden change of rhetoric, Trump now claims that he will give Mexico one year to find a way to keep illegal drugs from entering the United States. If Mexico fails, the border closes. 

“That will be a very powerful incentive,” Trump shared adding that “I will do it,” and “I don’t play games.” 

Trump’s change of heart is currently credited to two sources: His administration warning about the economic fallout that would accompany closing the border and Mexico stepping up efforts to detain illegal migrants. 

It will be interesting to see how Mexican officials reply to the declaration.

    I’m hugely disappointed in Trump at this point. It’s been a cliffhanger situation for months. Yes.. no .. no.. yes. Either close the damned border and give us a different health care system or step down. I’m scared to death of the Dems. But this is so incredibly unfair for we who really believed he was closing the border. Like Mexico really cares? Not!!! I’m disgusted. Totally. Never thought I’d say it as I was a huge fan of his since he took office. Either he’s all talk and no action or he’s caving to Mitch McConnell. Wtf up Trump!

    Not closing the border and pushing off any vote on health care till 2020 is caving to the big money that controls our . As a serious Trump supporter and registered republican I promise this is not going to help the backstabbing ineffective Republican Party in 2020.

    I wouldn’t even give the Mexican Government a year to decide. At the most I would give them until the end of this year and if there is no radical change, then close the border. Of course they may come back earlier and say “not our problem” If so, shut the damn border there and then.

      Totally agree with you … Howard. POTUS Trump needs to order for US Troops to be immediately deployed or sent all across the US Southern border. And, any a Congress men/woman who declares their opposition to such an order .. he/she should be immediately removed from their official gov. positions. This, not only due because of their fraudulent, treasonous, sick idea on how these crooks believe or think that their “representing and serving” the US American people’s interests and those of the Nation’s .. these have nothing to do with their Constitutional mandate to protect our Nation’s borders. If Mexico doesn’t care to enforce their own immigration laws then, the dealing with all of the humanitarian + problems and all financial cost that the “caravans” from Central America bring to their territory – to begin with – that’s Mexico’s own problem to learn to deal with and, not for the US taxpayer to get stuck and deal with ,, just because some treasonous US politicians have knowingly decided to intentionally betray their duty. Honestly, I hope that – soon – the public execution of the known US traitors becomes a reality.

    We should be allowed to shoot the invaders to prevent them from destroying our Country.

    Don’t give them a year that just lets the law-breakers think they can still come on in now. We the citizens have had enough of this everyone against a border wall should be taken out of our Congress. They are supposed to think of the people not themselves,all the D’s are there just to thwart Pres.Trump,nothing else. There is something else,power,they have already gotten wealthy by being there and conning the people.

If we don’t give them jobs they won’t come here. We need to pass a law that if your caught with a illegal Working for you it’s jail for you. No jobs no illegals.

    Mexico, president Trump need’s to put sanctions’ on Mexico, and not a year from now, it has to be done now, Mexico is the reason that we are having all these Pillages, coming to the Border, because Mexico has done nothing to stop them at there border, and force them to go back to there own country, and Mexico needs to stop all there people from trying to get into America, Illegally, Mexico knows we have laws ageist that, they need to start arresting there people, you have to go through the port of entry, and president trump is only letting people in America, that have merit, not people who want to live off of america.

    Time for POTUS Trump to realize that the Mexican government is and has been maliciously and intentionally complicit in allowing the “caravans” from Central America and people from other nationalities to freely cross their territory without consequence for the violation to Mexico’s immigration “laws”. There ought to be some serious talk and action by all in Congress, on what real measures that are needed to be immediately taken .. mainly on how to deal with and how to punish the “contributing negligent actions” of one “bad (mexico) neighbor” who’s long been acting in bad faith. Clearly, it’s not the behavior to be expected of any a trusted “good friend”. No different than the position taken by them treasonous thieving frauds in the US Congress .. democrats and rinos who DO NOT serve our people’s and our Country’s best interest. However, unless you’re one stupid blind fool .. by now, you know damn well all of the names of them traitors who no longer deserve to “serve” in any level or branch of “our” US government.

    Close the border. Place National Guard at each entrance point. The ICE persons should be at the points not protected by the National Guard. The State Police for each state should be prepared to assist if needed. If the state is a sanctuary state deal with the state police issue if possible. All groups should plan to be on strict orders to stop any immigrants to cross the border for 30 days. The corporate individuals, farmers, and other small businesses should plan as if there is a major truckers strike for at least 30 days. Remember the days of Union strikes. The local citizens should also prepare for Stage 5 hurricane week 1st and 2nd. Stage 4 on the 3rd and stage 1 on the last week. The next 30 days should be for moving back and cleaning up the BS from demoncratic snakes, socialist pigs, and traitor republicans.

      I agree with you Mr. Feeney 100%. Served 20 years of my younger life and laid my life (during Vietnam war) aboard a destroyer for five years total of six months yearly deployment away from my family to protect fellow Americans. I was a legal immigrant (naturalized U.S. citizen) who assimilated with U.S. culture and more. I got myself educated during off duty hours to become a good citizen and good economic contributor. No welfare because I was too proud to get handouts.

        thank you for you statement I am a AMERICAN by choice like you and proud. I even made my GED beside my German diplomas. all I hope for is the people see how illegals cost us a arm and a leg. and we pay for it, the government has no money only our tax, and the shuffle the money up the illegals behind. P.S demand we speak only English this is America. I am sick to go in a store and be spoken to me in Mexican. make it a law, I did learn for this country English and I expect this from all emigrants. legal and illegal. next time I will answer in German I like to see there faces.

    Why in the world should we give “them” another year. They have had 2 years to know this was coming. Just more opportunity for drugs, trafficking and strain on the US economy. There are ways to let the legitimate commerce continue, find the ways and search every vehicle that comes and goes across a VERY narrow border crossing. Use all the troops/agents you need, JUST DO IT !!!

    One more year of illegal immigrants entering. What is wrong with that? Any one should be able to figure that out.

    How long will we have open borders? Trump’s been in office for two p.us years and still no border wall to prevent illegal aliens out. Trump should still close the U.S. southern border and make Mexico do what they need to do to control the flow of illegal aliens entering Their country from other countries.

    We’re expecting the Mexican Government to do something. I doubt it, they would lose all their Paola from the Cartels!
    The Hispanics of our nation love what Donald Trump (see his poll results), has done. But they want action too. These illegals take their job, rob them, and even kill them.
