ACLJ Profile Completion


In a big win for President Trump and for our national security, Mexico has agreed to work with us to secure our border from the influx of illegal migrants, proving once again the threat of tariffs works.

On today’s show, we discussed Mexico’s agreement to avoid tariffs from the United States by sending 6,000 troops to its northern border to stem the flow of illegal migrants using it as a thoroughfare to come to America.

Of course the ultra-liberal New York Times chose to put a different spin on the victory, posting the headline: Mexico Agreed to Take Border Actions Months Before Trump Announced Tariff Deal.

The Times article claimed the President only sped up action on promises Mexico already made. Made, but hadn’t followed through on. As Thann pointed out, the harm was in the delay. It was President Trump, through threatening these tariffs, that got Mexico to finally honor its obligations.

The New York Times has also tried to disregard the crisis at our southern border, calling it a drama of President Trump’s own making.

As acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kevin McAleenan pointed out, even President Obama acknowledged the crisis at the border when he was in office, long before it reached the inconceivable numbers we’ve been seeing.

“We had two prior surges of families and children of the border, 2014 and 2016. At that time President [Barack] Obama called it a humanitarian crisis. In the last two months alone we have more than doubled those two full years of crisis.”

The New York Times should tell the children being “recycled” in illegal immigration rings that it’s all a drama that President Trump has made up. The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol has warned of smugglers who “recycle” innocent kids from Central America, forcing them to pose as children of migrants to get them across the border, then shipping them back to be placed into another “family” without any concern for their safety or welfare.

There is an undeniable humanitarian crisis and it’s a huge deal that Mexico is finally taking action with us to stem the tide from Central America.
