President Trump Threatens To Shut Down Southern Border Unless Mexico Stops Migrant Caravan


President Trump threatened to close the Southern Border "next week" if Mexico does not "immediately stop" the surge of illegal immigrants coming into the United States. Speaking to reporters in Florida on Friday, Trump said Mexico has "the strongest immigration laws anywhere in the world, and we have the weakest, the most pathetic laws."

"We have right now two big caravans coming up from Guatemala, massive caravans, walking right through Mexico," the president said. "So Mexico is tough, they can stop them. And if they don't stop them, we're closing the border."

"We'll keep it closed for a long time, I'm not playing games."

"Mexico has to stop it," he said. "They have people coming right through Mexico. It is a long, very dangerous journey. Mexico sends buses, they send trucks, they started at one point, a little bit stopping. They don't do anything to stop it right now."

The president issued a series of Tweets Friday morning on the subject:
