Trump treatens US Military action at Mexico Border

Flags Return of Family Separations

If you are looking out for Reichstag Smoke, a minor incursion into Mexico would spark a crisis that would wipe Khashoggi and everything else bar Wall Street off the front pages.


Trump says he is considering a new family separation policy at U.S.-Mexico border

President Trump confirmed Saturday that he is considering a new family separation policy at the U.S.-Mexico border because he believes the administration’s earlier move to separate migrant children from parents was an effective deterrent to illegal crossings.

Asked to respond to a report in The Washington Post that the administration is weighing a new family-separation policy, Trump told reporters, “We’re looking at everything that you could look at when it comes to illegal immigration.”

Trump said the soaring number of illegal border crossings is “a terrible situation” and argued that family separations likely would help scare away some undocumented migrants from trying to enter the United States.

“If they feel there will be separation, they won’t come,” Trump said.

Military Action on The Table

... I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!... @realDonaldTrump

Why now? Doh!

Where’s the fire?

There’s been a Adminstration buildup for several days about a mob of thousands of Hondurans marching towards the US border. Tens of Thousands. Drugs. Crime. If Mexico doesn’t stop them I will. They shall not pass.

12. I NEVER said he did.

I said if you were looking for a crisis prior to the electisons analogous to the Reichstag fire, this would fit the bill. Turn the whole conversation back to immigration. Open borders etc.

Trump hasn’t reinstated family separations either. Kites in the wind.

9. Although I agree with your spirit OP...

This type of misleading click-bait is what I come to DU to avoid. Plenty of factual tomfuckery going on right now, we dont need to manufacture anything additional.
