posted by Hannity Staff - 4.03.18

President Trump announced Tuesday his plans to deploy the American military to the United States’ southern border with Mexico; telling reporters “we’re going to be guarding our border with the military” until the US has a proper border wall.

The President was speaking with reporters at the White House when he unveiled his response to the crisis sweeping across the US border, threatening to scrap America’s free-trade deal with Mexico if they refuse to cooperate.

“We have very bad laws for our border. We’re going to be doing some things. I spoke with General Mattis, we’re going to be doing things with the military. Until we have a wall and proper security, we’re going to be guarding our border with the military,” said the Commander-in-Chief.

“It’s a big step, we certainly haven’t done that before. We will be doing things with Mexico and they have to do it, otherwise I’m not going to do the NAFTA deal. NAFTA’s been fantastic for Mexico and bad for us,” he added.

'CARAVAN' CRISIS: Group Say Trump Threatening Immigrants With ‘MASS VIOLENCE’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.03.18

The organizers behind a massive “caravan” of US-destined immigrants slammed the Trump administration while traveling through Mexico Tuesday, saying the US President was threatening Central Americans with “threats of mass violence.”

According to Fox News, the leaders of the 1,000-immigrant strong march towards the United States’ southern border accused Trump of “bullying” the refugee community; adding his “caravan” will continue to stand with all “displaced peoples.”

“On April 1st, the U.S. President opportunistically invoked refugee caravans as a pretext for threatening immigrants already in the country, specifically DACA recipients, with a so-called ‘Nuclear Option’ to remove their protections from detention and deportation,” said a statement from People Without Borders.

“In the face of this bullying and these threats of mass violence, we continue to stand in solidarity with displaced people of all races, ethnicities, creeds, abilities, and gender and sexual identities,” the organization said.

President Trump called for “tougher laws” Monday night following news of the approaching Central American immigrants, saying “Honduras, Mexico and many other countries that the U.S. is very generous to, sends many of their people to our country through our WEAK IMMIGRATION POLICIES. Caravans are heading here. Must pass tough laws and build the WALL. Democrats allow open borders, drugs and crime!”

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

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.02.18

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.
