On Monday, the President issued some of his strongest rhetoric yet on the crisis at our southern border:
“Mexico must use its very strong immigration laws to stop the many thousands of people trying to get into the USA. Our detention areas are maxed out & we will take no more illegals. Next step is to close the Border! This will also help us with stopping the Drug flow from Mexico!”
Unfortunately, the production of territorial defense against invasion requires more than just rhetoric. It’s almost as though Trump anticipated my skepticism though because this Tweet was accompanied by rumors that Trump will be appointing Chris Kobach as immigration czar to coordinate inter-agency operations between DHS, ICE, DHHS, and the Army.
Hope for the best and prepare for the worst! We’ll be getting into all the latest details.
