President Donald Trump is doubling-down on his commitment to securing the U.S.-Mexico border warning that “we will close the Border permanently if need be” after a wave of Central American caravan migrants tried to overwhelm the U.S.-Mexico border on Sunday even throwing rocks at U.S. authorities.
President Trump tweeted: “Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries. Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!”
President Trump has additionally threatened a government shutdown if Congress does not act to help secure the border that now has some 6,000 Central Americans camping out in Tijuana.
Mexico has since committed to deporting the migrants. Meanwhile, protests continue from Tijuana locals that are upset at having their town over run by the caravan.
