Trump Threatens To Close Border As “Mother of All Caravans” Marches North #Trump #Immigration #IllegalAlien

President Donald Trump revealed in a late Friday morning tweet storm that unless Mexico immediately and completely end all illegal immigration into the United States, he plans to close down the border, or large sections of the border, next week.

While Fox News’ morning show Fox & Friends warned of a “Mother of All Caravans” gathering in the coming days, illegal immigration appears to have risen back to the top of the list of issues the White House is eager to talk about.

Trump tweeted:

It’s not clear what the exact meaning of this presidential fiat means, as Mexico cannot literally be held accountable for ALL illegal alien invaders coming into the United States — southern border or not — though Trump is certainly talking about illegal alien invaders crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mexico is bracing for the possible arrival of the “mother of all caravans,” Interior Secretary Olga Sanchez Cordero said as a caravan of migrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala began forming.

“We have information that a new caravan is forming in Honduras, that they’re calling ‘the mother of all caravans,’ and they are thinking it could have more than 20,000 people,” Sanchez Cordero said Wednesday.

Mexico appears to be both tiring of the caravans and eager not to anger the United States. It has stopped granting migrants humanitarian visas at the border, and towns along the well-traveled route to Mexico City sometimes no longer allow caravans to spend the night.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Thursday that Mexico is doing its part to fight immigrant smuggling.

“We are going to do everything we can to help. We don’t in any way want a confrontation with the U.S. government,” he said. “It is legitimate that they are displeased and they voice these concerns.”

Sanchez Cordero has pledged to form a police line of “containment” around Mexico’s narrow Tehuantepec Isthmus to stop illegal alien invaders from continuing north to the U.S. border.

The containment belt would consist of federal police and immigration agents, but such highway blockades and checkpoints have not stopped large and determined groups of illegal alien invaders in the past.
