Thousands of undocumented immigrants are crashing our borders, and President Donald Trump is not standing for it.
With the onslaught of immigrants trying to cross into the United States, authorities have been authorized to use rubber bullets and tear gas to fend off the border crashers.
Overrunning the Border
Pictures taken of the border over the weekend were more than a little disturbing.
Fences were being cut, climbed, and knocked down so immigrants could get across the border.
Once the integrity of the border security gave way, border security had no choice but to use tear gas and rubber bullets to fend off the wave of immigrants.
It got so bad that at one point, Homeland Security Director Kirstjen Nielsen issued a formal warning that anyone endangering border agents would be handled appropriately.
She also informed the media that these measures were being put in place because border jumpers were throwing projectiles at our border agents.
Nielsen warned the caravan members: “We will not tolerate this lawlessness.”
Things had gotten so bad that even Mexico said it was going to deport 500 migrants who “violently” and “illegally” tried to cross the border.
Legal Avenues Halted
The problem also caused the temporary halt of people entering the country legally.
There were miles of cars at the U.S.-Mexico border forced to wait while authorities dealt with caravan migrants.
In fact, authorities were forced to shut down all traffic from a highway along the border in San Diego.
“It is critical that U.S. and Mexican federal leaders together to safely resolve the migrant crisis,” the mayor of San Diego, Kevin Faulconer, said.
He added: “Our way of life relies on a safe, secure, and functioning border.”
Still, liberals continue to push the narrative we need to allow every one of these individuals into our country — but our border laws are in place for a reason.
Asylum is not granted merely because of poverty. If we allowed that, our country would be overridden.
Every sitting president in recent history has stressed the importance of the integrity of our borders.
Trump is no different, but for some reason, Democrats have decided that this is no longer important.
