Commentary: Go Big Mr. President: Close the Southern Border

by Conservative HQ Staff


Yesterday, our friend independent investigative journalist Sara Carter passed along a tweet from President Trump saying, “Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries. Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!”

The President’s comment came in response to an assault on our border at the San Ysidro port of entry where U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said it suspended northbound and southbound crossings for both pedestrians and vehicles for more than four hours on Sunday. The vehicle lanes re-opened at approximately 5 p.m. local time, five-and-a-half hours after they were closed.

Fox News reported that CBP said some demonstrators “attempted to illegally enter the U.S. through both the northbound and southbound vehicle lanes at the port of entry itself. Those persons were stopped and turned back to Mexico.”

U.S. border agents shot several rounds of tear gas after some migrants attempted to penetrate various points along the border and threw what appeared to be rocks at U.S. authorities.

Sara Carter reports dozens of Central American migrants were detained by American agents Sunday and Monday after rushing the US-Mexico border.

“In Mexico, Tijuana’s municipal government also announced it arrested more than three-dozen migrants for disturbing the peace and other charges related to the crossing attempt. Thousands of migrants have been gathering there after crossing through Mexico in a series of caravans that originated from Central America — and presumably are amongst those who were arrested on both sides of the border,” reported Fox News.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement that some migrants “attempted to breach legacy fence infrastructure along the border and sought to harm CBP personnel by throwing projectiles at them.”

“We will seek to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone who destroys federal property, endangers our frontline operators, or violates our nation’s sovereignty,” Sara Carter reports DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said.

Ron Colburn, president of the Border Patrol Foundation, told Fox and Friends that the caravan of migrants approaching the border has a “core of violence to it that basically communicates a sense of entitlement.”

“These are persons that one would like to think are true refugees, but they’re not showing that in their actions,” Colburn said, and we agree.

Mr. Colburn is right and you can watch “The Truth Behind the Caravan” through this link (note there’s an ad at the front but it is worth the wait).

The establishment media would like Americans to believe that thousands of Central Americans spontaneously got together, packed their lunches and set off for a 2,000-mile march to the United States, where they expect us to provide them with jobs, social services, education and more.

We applaud President Trump’s commitment to securing our southern border and urge the President to go big and close the entire border to assure that this well-planned invasion does not succeed.

We urge all CHQ readers and friends to join us in demanding that the United States government use every humane means necessary to prevent this invasion from entering the territory of the United States and that it undertake an investigation of those encouraging this illegal behavior with an eye toward prosecuting the instigators.

  1. If the President allows this caravan into our country, and does not shut down the border, he can kiss his reelection goodbye. This WAS the issue he was elected to correct, and if he doesn’t do it, it’ll be all over for him. The world is watching, Mr. President.
