"100%" Ready To Shut Down Border, If Mexico Does Not Stop Migrants

"The symptom and the root cause is out of Washington, D.C.", Dee Margo (R-Texas) said on "Rising", a video news outlet run by The Hill.

Despite that, Trump has threatened to close the border a bunch of times.

That's especially true since, while Mexico's the United States' third largest trade partner, it's the second destination for exports, said Jorge Guajardo, Mexico's former ambassador to China. "They're taking advantage of the United States".

Customs and Border Protection has temporarily moved Laredo-based officers to help in areas with an influx of asylum-seekers, like the Rio Grande Valley and El Paso.

"I think it's a good example". "If you notice we're not having the problem with Mexico. It's only from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras".

Besides, most of this state's avocados stay here and in other Western states.

He tweeted Friday that he would be "CLOSING the Border, or large sections of the Border", in the coming week if Mexico does not crack down on illegal border crossings.

In fact, a 2015 Pew study concluded that in a historic shift, more Mexicans returned to their home country between 2009-2014 than entered the United States. "One hundred percent", Trump said at the White House during a meeting with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg. "I have to have security", he said. The Secretary directed CBP to return hundreds of additional migrants per day above current rates to Mexico, consistent with US law and humanitarian obligations.

"We will see how much progress we are able to make in the ensuing days, in terms of getting more enforcement with Central and South America, so that we are not getting swamped by meritless asylum claims predominantly from Central America", Miller told top administration immigration surrogates on a conference call, according to the notes. "It is NOT the sole deterrent".

"We haven't seen a time in the USA when supermarket shelves are bare from fresh produce in a long time", president of the Fresh Produce Association of the Americas Lance Jungmeyer tells CNN.

Both Democrats and Republicans dismissed Mr. Trump's talk.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he is "100 percent" prepared to close down the US-Mexico border, warning Congress and Central American governments to take action to stem the flow of migrants into the country.

Over the weekend, the president moved to cut direct aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, whose citizens are fleeing north and overwhelming US resources - including as part of organized caravans.

He also defended his decision to cut off "hundreds of millions of dollars" in U.S. aid to the three countries, accusing them of arranging the caravans of migrants. He also explained that many forthcoming regulations "are nearing their completion date", and that they will "have transformative effects on our immigration system".
