TRUMP DOUBLES DOWN – Threatens to Completely Close Southern Border After Reaching Deal With Mexico on Asylum Seekers

President Trump doubled down Saturday night and threatened to completely close the southern border after striking a deal with Mexico forcing asylum seekers to remain outside of the US border.

The President fired off a pair of tweets Saturday night reassuring the American people that Obama’s dangerous ‘catch and release’ policy for illegal aliens is over.

President Trump also said, if necessary, he will close the southern border.

TRUMP: Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court. We only will allow those who come into our Country legally. Other than that our very strong policy is Catch and Detain. No “Releasing” into the U.S…

TRUMP: ….All will stay in Mexico. If for any reason it becomes necessary, we will CLOSE our Southern Border. There is no way that the United States will, after decades of abuse, put up with this costly and dangerous situation anymore!

Gateway Pundit Poll: Should Trump Use Military Force On The Border If Necessary?

Earlier Saturday, it was reported the Trump administration reached a deal with Mexico which will make asylum seekers wait in Mexico while their cases are processed.

Under Obama’s ‘catch and release’ policy, illegal aliens would often just disappear into the US population and ignore orders to appear in court regarding their immigration status.

There are now 5,000 to 6,000 illegal caravan migrants in Tijuana, Mexico waiting to seek asylum into the United States.

According to estimates 500 of those migrants are criminals.
