BORDER SHOWDOWN: Migrant ‘Caravan’ Arrives at US CUSTOMS in San Diego

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.30.18

Hundreds of migrant workers from Central America ended their month-long journey through Mexico and arrived at the US border Sunday; attempting to cross into San Diego and claim asylum-status as early as Monday morning.

Despite weeks of legal drama and comments from the President demanding Mexican authorities disband the ‘caravan,’ the undocumented immigrants are poised to file paperwork with federal agents; hoping to receive legal-resident status in the US.

US authorities have so-far refused entry to the Central Americans, saying the customs checkpoint has “reached capacity.”

“At this time, we have reached capacity at the San Ysidro port of entry for CBP (Customs and Border Protection) officers to be able to bring additional persons traveling without appropriate entry documentation into the port of entry for processing,” Commissioner Kevin McAleenan told Fox News in a statement.

He said the immigrants “may need to wait in Mexico as CBP officers work to process those already within our facilities.”

‘CARAVAN’ CROSSING? Migrant Group ARRIVES at US Border

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.26.18

Hundreds of migrants from Central America arrived at the US-Mexico border Wednesday night; setting the stage for a looming showdown with President Trump who pledged to refuse entry should the workers attempt to enter the United States.

According to Reuters, the migrants began streaming into Tijuana this week; vowing to cross into California starting Saturday morning.

“The wall doesn’t look that tall,” said a 15-year-old girl from Honduras. “I really want to cross it.”

“Thanks to god we’re here,” added a 34-year old worker from Guatemala -accompanied by two children.

Earlier this month, President Trump demanded Mexico crackdown on the migrant ‘caravan’ as it worked its way through Mexico towards the United States.

While Mexican authorities did prevent some workers from making their way towards the border -with initial estimates being upwards of 1500 people- it remains unclear how federal authorities will handle the asylum seekers.

TRUMP GOES NUCLEAR: The President Tells GOP to 'GO NUCLEAR’ On Border Wall

President Trump doubled-down on his all-out war with liberal lawmakers over immigration policy this week; demanding GOP Senators go “nuclear” and change congressional rules to fully fund his proposed border wall.

The President unloaded on the left-wing legislators on social media Monday morning, saying the GOP “must go to Nuclear option to pass tough laws now.”

“Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. ‘Caravans’ coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!” tweeted Trump.

“Congress must immediately pass Border Legislation, use Nuclear Option if necessary, to stop the massive inflow of Drugs and People. Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are GREAT, but the weak Dem laws don’t allow them to do their job. Act now Congress, our country is being stolen!” he added.

The so-called “nuclear option” would amend Senate procedural rules; allowing a simple 50-vote majority to pass legislation instead of the currently required 60-vote “super majority” that permits the minority party to effectively hold-up bills indefinitely.
