The border with Mexico will once again come to the attention of the American people due to tweets from the president about the demise of DACA and potentially NAFTA. There is the already disaster of Haitian migrants trying to get into this country stuck at the border at Tijuana hoping to cross as asylum seekers. This will not happen under the Trump administrations new directives that makes anyone from a sh–hole country as the president said will not be welcomed here. This is on top of his Muslim ban. The Democrats were willing to give Trump his “Big beautiful wall.” The president wanted an end to family chain migration as part of the deal for the “Dreamers” to have a path to citizenship. Immigration raids on businesses that traditionally hire the undocumented have increased over the past year.
There are now at least 1100 people heading for the border between the U.S. and Mexico. As a group, they are determined to cross the border at any cost. There will be no way to stop that many people from crossing the border on foot at the same time. This will be a true test of the border patrol’s ability to secure our Southern border. Those who make their living from human smuggling are also watching and looking for new opportunities to enrich themselves off the desperation of those who seek a better life no matter what the cost.
