President Trump’s insistence on securing our southern border with Mexico has become a flashpoint for the unkempt “resistance” against him.
One of then-candidate Trump’s most popular campaign promises was to erect a “big, beautiful wall” on our nation’s border with Mexico. The hope was that this would both funnel would-be Americans through the naturalization process, and help to make life difficult for the criminals who use our border as a means of moving their illicit goods…whether those goods are drugs, guns, or human trafficking victims.
As a caravan of Honduran migrants are moving north, hoping to test the President’s resolve on the issue, a showdown loomed that even saw the Commander in Chief threaten to bring the military into the fray. The possibility of confrontation didn’t seem to phase the migrants, who have been calling out President Trump by name in their march.
Now, Mexico and the United Nations have joined forces with the President and the rest of these United States in an effort to prevent just such a calamity.
The Trump administration on Thursday night welcomed a Mexican government plan to work with the United Nations refugee agency to deal with a controversial caravan of mostly Honduran migrants — fleeing poverty and violence — before they can make their way to the U.S.-Mexico border.
The caravan of migrants, who number anywhere between 1,500 to 4,000 people, has angered President Donald Trump. This week, he threatened the governments in Central America and Mexico if they failed to deal with the situation.
A top Mexican official said Thursday night that his government will ask the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to help identify “legitimate” asylum claims from the migrants who are part of the caravan making its way through his country’s southern border en route to the U.S.
Under the Mexican government’s plan, those migrants whose asylum claims get rejected would be immediately repatriated to Honduras and other countries, Gerónimo Gutiérrez, the Mexican Ambassador to the U.S., told Fox News’ “Special Report” in an interview.
This necessary cooperation only serves to bolster the President’s point that the US alone cannot handle the onslaught of illegal immigrants attempting to enter our country on any given day. A wall, such as proposed by the President, is the the only alternative to spending billions of dollars in manpower and resources to do the same job.
