White House Prepares In Case Trump Closes Border

US border closure threatens avocado supply

President Trump and his administration have repeated threats to shut down the border, after the president cut aid to three Central American countries that he accused of deliberately sending migrants to the U.S. I could do it in 45 minutes.

He says Congress needs to address the shortage of immigration judges in border regions, which could help process asylum claims more efficiently.

"We need to get rid of catch and release and visa lottery". The fact that this would be an extreme logistical challenge, involving tremendous planning and follow-through, is a good indication that Trump would be not be successful at doing it. CNN also reminds us there would be legal challenges galore, meaning that Trump could threaten to do it, have it shot down by the courts, and then simply tell his base that he did everything he could.

"We are in a full blown emergency", he said. But they don't want to change it because they don't want to give the Republicans a victory.

Saenz says he believes some immigrants take advantage of USA asylum laws, and "abuse the system", which he says has led to the surge of asylum-seekers coming to the southern border.

The president met with a bipartisan delegation from the US Congress, to whom he expressed Mexico's interest in keeping a close and respectful relationship with the United States in order to build solutions to common challenges, according to an official communiqué published at the end of the meeting. Trump acknowledged that Mexico had increased its apprehensions on Tuesday. They were joined by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which said such a step would inflict "severe economic harm".

"There was a fear on our part, it's very altruistic on our part in the United States which it should be, that they would be picked up by Mexican cartels, and used as drug mules or in human trafficking", he said.

Americans may be eating significantly less avocado toast if President Donald Trump makes good on his threat to close the border between the US and Mexico.

"There's a lot of stuff that moves and exactly how Customs and Border Patrol would deal with that would be something that we'll have to confer with them about, should we get to that", Hassett said.

That was a sign of efforts within the administration to slow-walk and minimize the impact of Trump's renewed threat last week to seal the border, and quickly.

Trump also alluded to this in a tweet Tuesday morning, saying: "Mexico is apprehending large numbers of people at their Southern Border".

Trump has been briefed several times since a year ago about the economic consequences of shutting U.S. ports of entry at the southern border but has continued to contemplate the idea of closing sections or the border in its entirety.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said in an appearance on MSNBC that the White House is now considering a number of options short of a full border closure, such as shutting down certain entry ports or parts of all of them.

Federal cops responded to an anonymous tip in southern Mexico and found 338 migrants Central Americans - nearly half of them children - aboard five buses.

"We've also seen them stop more people from coming across the border so that they aren't even entering into the United States", she said. He repeated that threat on Tuesday but said he had not made a decision yet: "We're going to see what happens over the next few days".
