Trump Demands ‘Funding’ Now As Border Standoff Intensifies

Although there have been demonstrations on the border from illegal invaders, President Trump is getting deadly serious about protecting America’s sovereignty.

The president threatened to close the border yesterday, if he thinks Mexico has lost control of the migrant criminals, and has authorized the use of force.

“Vehicle and pedestrian traffic at the busy San Ysidro crossing came to a halt for 40 minutes as dozens of US police wearing helmets and holding rifles formed a line facing the Mexican side of the frontier. Separately, riot police rehearsed deployment movements. US Customs and Border Protection called all of this a ‘large-scale readiness exercise.’”

“American soldiers in khaki-colored uniforms set off rockets that exploded with a pungent-smelling white smoke.”

President Trump has already deployed nearly 6,000 troops along the border and yesterday he added, “If we find that it gets to a level where we are going to lose control or where people are going to start getting hurt, we will close entry into the country for a period of time until we can get it under control.”

“The whole border. I mean the whole border,” he said, adding that “Mexico will not be able to sell their cars into the United States.”

Invaders in Tijuana defied the president with protests yesterday and liberal judges seem to be protecting them.

“Open the gates, Trump! We are not looking for war, but work,” shouted Alberto Ruiz, a 22-year-old Honduran. Of course, work is not a legitimate asylum claim, something the mainstream media seems loath to admit.

White House chief of staff John Kelly signed a Cabinet order on the day before Thanksgiving allowing some troops to engage in law enforcement activities and use lethal force, which removes the restrictions they’ve previously been forced to endure.

Troops may “perform those military protective activities that the Secretary of Defense determines are reasonably necessary,” according to the report, which explains that “protective activities” include “a show or use of force (including lethal force, where necessary), crowd control, temporary detention, and cursory search.”

Now, the President is also demanding that democrats join republicans in securing the sovereignty of the United States.

“Republicans and Democrats MUST come together, finally, with a major Border Security package, which will include funding for the Wall,” Trump wrote.

Trump has kept the door open to a potential government shutdown if an upcoming deal to fund parts of the government does not include funding for a border wall. Congress has until December 7, to fund the rest of the government after lawmakers punted on seven of the 12 individual funding bills before the end-of-the-fiscal-year deadline.”

Many people agree that it’s way past time, and blame RINOs in the House and Senate for wasting the last two years.
