On Sunday President Trump threatened “willing to ‘shut down’ ” the federal government if Congress does not send him a bill to secure the U.S. border — a bill that includes the wall.
President Trump made the statement on Twitter stating,
“I would be willing to “shut down” government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!”
Trump continued his statements saying children are abused in the border crossing,
“Please understand, there are consequences when people cross our Border illegally, whether they have children or not – and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes. Congress must act on fixing the DUMBEST & WORST immigration laws anywhere in the world! Vote “R””
We will see if this threat works on Congress and they give us a strong border with a wall. President Trump is right we need a strong border with a wall and it needs to happen fast.
