Nancy Pelosi and President Trump are gearing up for another major fight over the border.
Pelosi walked into the battle thinking she held all the cards.
But President Trump turned Nancy Pelosi’s life into a living hell with this threat.
Democrats in Congress continue to obstruct any changes to the nation’s immigration laws.
They are cheering the crisis on the Southern border because they think it makes President Trump look weak on his signature issue and sets them up for victory in 2020 where they can pass a massive amnesty bill for millions of illegal aliens.
However, President Trump countered their obstructionism by drawing a line in the sand.
The President threatened to close down the Southern border to stop all illegal immigration.
Democrats and their allies in the fake news media contended that the President was bluffing.
But President Trump made it clear he was dead serious.
President Trump tweeted, “Mexico must use its very strong immigration laws to stop the many thousands of people trying to get into the USA. Our detention areas are maxed out & we will take no more illegals. Next step is to close the Border! This will also help us with stopping the Drug flow from Mexico!”
In an Oval Office meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, President Trump doubled down on his threat, but said that Congress could prevent this course of action if they finally passed legislation to secure the border and end the flow of illegal alien migrants into the country.
“Congress has to meet quickly and make a deal. I could do it in 45 minutes. We need to get rid of chain migration,” Trump said.
“We need to get rid of catch and release and visa lottery. And we have to do something about asylum. And to be honest with you, we have to get rid of judges,” the President added.
President Trump turned up the heat on Pelosi and the Democrats in Congress by declaring that they refused to stop the illegal alien invasion over petty political concerns.
“It is the worst, dumbest immigration system in the world,” Trump continued. “The Democrats can change it in one meeting. Everyone would agree. But they don’t want to change it because they don’t want to give Republicans a victory.”
For months, Pelosi and her tag team partners in the fake news media bellowed that Trump was “lying” about there being a crisis on the Southern border.
But as it turned out, the media and their allies in the Democrat Party were the ones peddling fake news and hoaxes.
Customs and Border Patrol stopped over 100,000 illegal aliens from entering the country in March.
That is an over ten-year high.
And the majority of these illegal aliens are being released into the country because of the antiquated immigrations laws supported by Democrats and open-borders Republicans.
Democrats tried to duck any responsibility for the border crisis.
Now President Trump is putting them on the spot.
Pelosi and her caucus may have gotten away with opposing Trump’s immigration priorities before.
But those days are over.
Trump’s threat to close the border will finally force the Democrats to go on the record with their support for open borders.
