Migrant caravan drama returned to the headlines over the weekend after several violent clashes broke out at the US-Mexico border, prompting US troops to fire tear gas at migrants who tried to rush the border, while one migrant who attacked border agents with stones after crossing into Arizona was taken into custodyAfter the incoming Mexican government denied reports that it had agreed to hold asylum applicants from Central American while they awaited their asylum hearings, Mexico said it would deport some 500 migrants who tried to rush the US border on Sunday.

Hundreds try to storm the border. Expect significant US response

11:15 AM – Nov 25, 2018

Given all that is happening, it’s hardly surprising that President Trump, who just returned from a holiday weekend at Mar-a-Lago, escalated his threats to close the US-Mexico border after a series of angry tweets about a 60 Minutes story about his administration’s controversial “child separation” policy where he (correctly) pointed out that the Trump administration’s policy was merely a continuation of policies from the Bush and Obama administrations. Trump said that he tried to keep families together, but that “when you do that, vast numbers of additional people storm the border.”

.@60Minutes did a phony story about child separation when they know we had the exact same policy as the Obama Administration. In fact a picture of children in jails was used by other Fake Media to show how bad (cruel) we are, but it was in 2014 during O years. Obama separated….

….children from parents, as did Bush etc., because that is the policy and law. I tried to keep them together but the problem is, when you do that, vast numbers of additional people storm the Border. So with Obama seperation is fine, but with Trump it’s not. Fake 60 Minutes!

6:07 PM – Nov 25, 2018

Trump closed his rant by demanding that Mexico move “stone-cold criminal” migrants back to their home countries “do it by plane, do it by bus, do it any way you want but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A!” Failing this, Trump added “we will close the border permanently if need be” before demanding that Congress “fund the WALL.”

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!

3:19 AM – Nov 26, 2018

Of course, Trump will have a chance to do just that next month, where he will have the opportunity to threaten a shutdown if Congress doesn’t agree to funding for his border-strengthening initiatives like the wall.
