President Trump announced in a tweet today that he will permanently close the southern border of the United States if the migrant caravan is not placed under control by the Mexican Government.
The announcement came following the release of news and video of U. S. authorities shooting tear gas at migrant families.
Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries. Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!

#FakeNews Media all share same photo of “women & kids gassed”.
Perpetrators of invasion instantly become victims in new #FakeNews narrative.
