President Trump issued a threat on Thanksgiving day to shut down the entire border with Mexico if the migrant situation gets out of control.
“If we find that it gets to a level where we’re going to lose control or 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.”
Yes, please put the border on lockdown.

President Trump on Thursday threatened to close off the southern border, telling reporters that he would “close entry into the country” if immigration gets “uncontrollable.”
“If we find that it gets to a level where we’re going to lose control or 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,” he said.
Trump added that he meant the “whole border,” though he appeared to be referring only to the southern border.
“We’re either going to have a border or we’re not,” he said, adding that Mexico wouldn’t “be able to sell their cars” into the U.S.
Trump also claimed that the U.S. closed the border earlier this week, though it was unclear what he was referring to.” More
Here is a novel idea. How about we enforce the laws already on the books? Close the border and let them enter legally like my ancestors had to. This president has said and done way more than the one before him. It’s sad the amount of ignorance that blinds many people. It’s sad that people have no respect for the morals of which our country was founded on.
While you’re at it Mr. President, go ahead and shut down the entire Federal Government until sufficient funds are appropriated for the border wall.
Dems flip out on Twitter:
Ignore this garbage. He’s trying to create a “national emergency” that isn’t real. Seriously, the only way to take the air out of this buffoon’s blustering is to ignore him, and his petty little distractions. Focus on what terrifies him: Truth and Robert Mueller.

Always so gracious; always has the right thing to say. Oh, wait, I meant, “NEVER.”

DJT can’t even give it us a break for the holiday. He’ll never be the president for all American people.

Does he mean those cars that are manufactured in Mexico but have American names like Ford and Chevy? Sure that won’t affect the American economy at all.

Those migrants are much less of a threat than Trump and the other evil climate crisis denying liars in the government. Those traitors to all of humanity are a war on our children. Even the economic collapse of Honduras was caused by a hurricane larger than ever before there.

Attacks the free press, the judiciary, wants prosecution of political rivals, condones brutal repression and assassination, stuffs his cabinet with proven corrupt men and women, surrounds himself with family, brags and lies every day… Anyone else see a wannabe Dictator?
