Trump administration officials said Monday theyre crafting a new legislative package aimed at closing immigration loopholes, hours after the president called on Republicans in Congress to immediately pass a border bill using the Nuclear Option if necessary to muscle it through.
Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are GREAT, but the weak Dem laws dont allow them to do their job. Act now Congress, our country is being stolen! President Donald Trump wrote in a series of sometimes-misleading tweets, fired off after returning from a holiday weekend spent in Florida with several immigration hardliners.
Trump also declared protections for so-called Dreamer immigrants dead, claimed the U.S. has no effective border laws and warned Mexico to halt the passage of caravans of illegal immigrants or risk retribution.
They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL! he wrote.

The deal: (1) No amnesty; (2) signed up DACA recipients run out their current permits and leave; (3) all other illegal aliens subject to immediate deportation; (4) eVerify for all current and future workers; (5) fund the wall; (6) no funds or new business with sanctuary states, counties, and cities; (7) end chain migration; and (8) end birthright citizenship. Make that deal; Make America Great Again.
Democrats had no qualms about nuclear options during the terror supporter’s reign. But now they’ll no doubt whine about the unfairness of Republicans using it.
The situation calls for retaliation, up to and including military strikes against the government of Mexico. Whoever is making the decision to facilitate the invasion ought to get an overnight JDAM-a-gram.
This bothers me because he should know Mitch will never do it and l doubt it would make any difference. So is he saying he cannot do anything about the invasion because rhey havent invoked the option? We are losing our country and hes looking to the traitors in the Senate to help? Naive? Excuse?
Distraction and making sure that all his bases are covered.
Immigration hardliners = Citizens.
Thanks - needed to add that to the collection
The guys who forced him to sign the Omnibus bill to fund liberals’ priorities?
Come on Republicans. Do something.
Don't let the invaders coming north through Mexico become your Mariel Boatlift.
Those cowards wont do anything.
Trump probably knows there are CEASES OPERATIONS court orders already in place and he will have to violate them to keep them out. All they have to do is put a date on them. Presto, impeachable offense.
An aside: Looking at the overall political picture I see two ugly faces rearing their heads, belching their disgusting Leftist gasses. Cloward-Piven.
Just looking at the map of the political woes we face today. Swamp unchained. Hitting PDJT with everything they can.
Agree with you entirely, but should include purge of voter rolls nationwide, and instituting solid voter registration laws — laws with registration standards that no citizen should have any difficulty whatsoever meeting —with some provision mad to protect those few very elderly citizens who were born at home in then very remote regions where school and birth records might be a little spotty —but for those few citizens there should be a deadline well before the election to provide what documentation they do have to prove citizenship to prevent abuse. If the GOP would just use this nuclear option this one time, they probably never have to use it again, the democrat party would cease to be viable as it presently stands, they would have to clean themselves up and become a patriotic constitution-loving American-loving organization once again — and in the process it would clean out corrupt RINOs from govt as well eventually.
All Trump really needs to do is to persuade the governor of one state to declare war on Mexico, and then he is free to use the military, etc., to stop this!
I need another good one of the other guy. Had one but lost the link.
