Assuming you understand what you posted means,,,,Thanks!
Then the one good thing about Trump is light is shed on these policies-which should be revoked- and with some foreign policies we have-like with saudi arabia.

Apparently you do as you are criticizing their actions to protect the border and themselves from the violence brought about by the migrants trying to storm the border. I'm just applying the same logic liberals use on a daily bases.

This has absolutely nothing to do with this thread.

Do you mean that same media that you defend on a daily basis other than Fox that does report on these matters, regardless of who occupies the WH? Ask yourself why the MSM would ignore this during Obama's term yet go ballistic once Trump is in the WH. You may find that there is in fact quite a bit of bias in the MSM.

Do you mean something like a large group of people attempting to cross a border and using violence to do so, such as throwing rocks and glass bottles at the officers charged with protecting the border? Or is that somehow different from a riot in your opinion?

First, the President can close any border crossing at any time under his powers granted by the Constitution in the protection of the country. Second, the border was closed due to the migrants attempting to storm the border by force to overwhelm the border patrol agents.

No, I would not be stupid enough to think that just because some left wing groups in the United States and Central America, tell me that if we get a large enough group and just head to the border, they will have to let us in. I can't speak for you level of intelligence as to whether or not you would do something so foolish.

Correction, four officers where hit with rocks, but did not suffer serious injuries. So in your mind, the injuries are not serious enough for the border agents to continue to protect themselves? I ask again, why do you hate these agents that are simply doing their jobs?

Once again, you conflate something he said with saying what he wants to do. He said that if the situation was not brought under control by the Mexican government, which is their duty to do as these people are currently there with the Mexican government allowing them to be, Trump would then be forced to close the border as we cannot allow this kind of lawlessness to continue. It is the morally and intellectually bankrupt that conflate that to mean that he just wants to close the borders.

I don't remember worrying about Mexico invading after 9/11, so your crazy argument has no bearing on the issue at hand.

Silly liberals like you are so clueless.
From what I've been told, and you can look at a map Salty, HUNDREDS of miles could have been shaved off their long trek if only they would have gone to the border through Brownsville, Texas instead of San Ysidro in San Diego. Why do you think the coyote's took them hundreds of miles further Salty?
