WASHINGTON (AP) Trump administration officials said theyre crafting a new legislative package aimed at closing immigration loopholes after the president called on Republican lawmakers to immediately pass a border bill using the Nuclear Option if necessary to muscle it through.
The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our Weak Laws Border, had better be stopped before it gets there. Cash cow NAFTA is in play, as is foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen. Congress MUST ACT NOW! Trump tweeted at daybreak today. The president also tweeted about caravans on Sunday and Monday.
The president has been tweeting about immigration and the border for the last few days, declaring protections for so-called Dreamer immigrants dead, accusing Democrats of allowing open borders, drugs and crime and warning Mexico to halt the passage of caravans of immigrants or risk U.S. abandonment of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
