Trump Says ‘100%’ Ready to Shut Down Mexico Border

"If we are not able to restore this very soon, this is going to economically cost both countries, because we are talking about one of the borders that has the most flow between countries", stated Ebrard.

"I don't think it's likely that Mexico comes up with anything tangible that actually satisfies or solves any of the problems that we allegedly have on the border".

Mr. Trump has become increasingly frustrated by headlines proclaiming soaring numbers of migrants attempting to jump the border, and Department of Homeland Security authorities struggling to find tools to respond.

According to Trump, the immigration and security loopholes are creating a national emergency.

"Closing down the border would have a potentially catastrophic economic impact on our country and I would hope we would not be doing that sort of thing", McConnell told reporters on Tuesday.

"Reminder that closing the US-Mexico border to legitimate commerce that tops $1.7 billion daily - and to the almost 500,000 workers, students, shoppers, and tourists who cross each day - would do nothing to address the immigrant surge from Central America", John G. Murphy, senior vice president for global policy for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said in a tweet on Wednesday. She released a video Wednesday in which she asserts that the president is only interested in closing the border because he's trying to assure his base that he is a strong candidate on immigration issues.

"Sure, it's going to have a negative impact on the economy".

"It is a hard season but, when things were going well, the fans were supporting us all". "People want to make it personal, but I don't mind".

Wait times at the border crossing at Brownsville, Texas, reached 180 minutes Monday, twice the peak a year ago, officials said.

"The system is on fire", a DHS official said. "What we might see is that they make some public pledge that calms President Trump's ego", commented Brandon Blackburn-Dwyer, Founder of Grasshopper Strategies.

On Thursday, Nielsen will head to Yuma, Ariz., to sit in on a roundtable panel with DHS leadership, as well as local law enforcement and elected officials.

Travelers and truckers coming from Mexico have, however, faced huge lines at the border since last week, caused by the Trump administration's decision to reassign hundreds of border officers to deal with migrants.

While the president continues to emphasize the importance of pre-existing condition protections, the Republicans' last heath care proposal, supported by the president, undermined such protections.

Trump said he had spoken with "a few" Democrats on Tuesday about the administration's proposals and added, "They're changing their minds". "Once they get in-because as you know we can't hold families for 20 days-they send the child back, and bring the child back with another family, another fake family".
