As President Trump threatens to close the U.S. -Mexico border, migrants are jumping border fences into California and Texas.

He also said he has "made (the) intention known" that if Mexico does not continue to apprehend more migrants attempting to cross into the United States and if Congress does not reach a consensus on immigration, he's "ready to close" the southern border of the US. This should've been done by other presidents. That includes the speeding up of the surge of at least 750 officers to assist US Border Patrol along areas of the southern border and the immediate expansion of the department's policy of returning asylum-seekers to Mexico.

"I'm not sure there's ever going to be a border closing but, I mean, I don't know how you would do that but I think we need to have an orderly flow of refugees where their well-founded fear of persecution and have a good number for legal immigration". "Altogether, we are the ones - and the only ones - who have utilized or are utilizing the border wall to rescue children".

"Next step is to close the border", he wrote. It would also eliminate almost all of the U.S.'s avocado stock in less than a month, according to Reuters.

Elected leaders from border communities stretching from San Diego to cities across Texas warned that havoc would ensue on both sides of the global boundary if the ports were closed.

The migrants are hoping to speed up their applications for asylum in the U.S. "Furthermore, I have worked closely with the heads of every USA agency whose job it is to find and rescue children being trafficked across the southern border", Ballard wrote.

Tusk said he didn't foresee having to call an emergency summit next week to approve the extension, which could be done in writing. Lithuania's president, Dalia Grybauskaite, said it was likely "we will grant" an extension but its timing was under discussion.

"Security is more important to me than trade", he said.

Nielsen has chose to fly to the border mid-week to assess the implementation of the new actions, the official said. "Everything is on the table", he said. She said Democrats must help address the issue of illegal immigration to keep ports of entry open.

Despite the logistical and economic concerns, White House aides have said this week that Trump is serious about closing the border even if the timing remains unclear.

When asked about the economic impact of a border shutdown, Trump said, "To me trading is very important the borders are very important but security is what - the most important". "I see the whole industry shutdown within a week of a border closing".

"If the stakes are either crime and violence directed against American citizens, as Trump often and erroneously says (since we know immigrants commit fewer crimes on average than the native-born) OR the human suffering of families sleeping on gravel in underpasses because of this Administration's choices, worrying about avocados seems rather silly either way". Wait times at Brownsville, Texas, were 180 minutes Monday, double the wait past year. Mexico is doing very well because of the United States.

"But as Washington was asleep, Secretary Nielsen made some decisions on border response and decided she needed to oversee those personally".
