President Donald Trump: Anybody throwing stones, rocks, like they did to Mexico and the Mexican military, Mexican police, where they badly hurt police and soldiers of Mexico, we will consider that a firearm. Trump also noting that some migrants have been violent while attempting to cross the Mexican-Guatemalan border.
There’s a new sheriff in town now! The MSM media asked about keeping the poor little kids in the tents like that would be too harsh for them to handle… Really, these kids just traveled 2000 miles in all kinds of danger and now we are supposed to worry about them living in a tent because the MSM thinks it’s too harsh! SMH. If you ask me it’s child abuse to drag kids here in the first place.
These people will get tents, warmth, food every day, showers, water, and medical treatment.
President Donald Trump warned would-be illegal immigrants advancing toward the U.S.-Mexico border that if they threw rocks at U.S. law enforcement or military it would be considered the same as firing on them, in a Thursday afternoon speech.
These migrants threw rocks at members of Mexican law enforcement, injuring some of their authorities in an attempt to continue through towards the U.S. to claim asylum. The president has been incensed by the advancing caravan which has swelled to nearly 6,000 people, largely citizens of Central America.
The Trump administration is concerned because current U.S. law requires a lengthy asylum adjudication process and believes many migrants are using loopholes in U.S. law to illegally immigrate. Trump announced that he will issue an executive order to force asylum seekers to only enter at legal ports of entry, allowing for orderly processing. More
Trump added any rock throwing “we will consider it, the maximum that we can consider that…We’re not going to put up with that. They want to throw rocks at our military, our military fights back….I told them to consider it a rifle.”
Rocks thrown across US Southern border have severely wounded (and lethal in some cases) US Border Patrol and other LEO. THIS DECISION BY Trump is very welcome and very smart: rocks thrown will be considered as firearms discharged https://t.co/AWpC0UeaVT
