As Illegal Immigration Crisis Rages, President Trump Threatens More Action on the Border

President Trump threatened to close the southern border with Mexico Thursday morning as the illegal immigration crisis continues to rage.

Yesterday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan held a press conference in El Paso where he pleaded with Congress to change asylum and deportation laws that are fueling the humanitarian disaster.

According to CBP, current illegal immigration numbers are on track for 1,000,000 by the end of this year.

Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is in Honduras this week addressing the crisis at its source.
