President of the United States Donald Trump threatened to completely close the U.S. – Mexico border, if the Congress won’t approve the allocation for the construction of the wall, which will protect from illegal migration. Trump said on Twitter.
‘We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with. Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!’ Trump claimed.
It should be noted that it is not the first time, when Trump threatens to close the border. Yet in October, he claimed to entirely close the border and send forces there. Later, the President commissioned the National Guard to protect the border but it hasn’t been implemented. According to media, the United States Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen claimed she wouldn’t close it, since it is impossible to make true.
As we reported earlier, the U.S. government has partially suspended working due to a fierce dispute over the demands of President Donald Trump that the Congress allocate USD five billion to build a wall along the border with Mexico.
Earlier, the U.S. Senate adopted the interim budget of the country until February 8, 2019. It is emphasized that the document does not indicate the five billion dollars that Donald Trump demanded the construction of a wall on the border with Mexico. He noted that the wall will be 'beautiful' and will provide the country with the security that 'citizens deserve.’
