To be perfectly frank, I had no idea how to start this border roundup today. I still don’t. The times are truly unprecedented, and the full scope of the U.S. government’s actions are still unknown.
Here are some of the things we do know:
The tension continues over the proposed border wall (the one that doesn’t yet exist, as opposed to the one that already does) and who, if anybody, is expected to foot the bill. In a high-profile change of plans, Mexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto, canceled a meeting with Presdeint Donald Trump that was originally set for this Tuesday.
Naturally, the bickering took place over Twitter:
The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico. It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA with massive numbers…

of jobs and companies lost. If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 26, 2017
We Stand Up for You. Will You Stand Up for Us?
I guess we will never stop hearing the sob stories. Especially the mother's talking about splitting up the family. Well, guess what. They knew they were breaking the law when they came. I say don't split up the family. Take your kids back to Mexico with you. Easy enough.
The left-wing media, thousands of protesters who want non-vetted aliens,and the Ninth Circuit Court just awarded President Trump a great gift. He now has a "free pass" for any future terrorist attacks during his term. I see the future tweet>>"I tried to warn you, blame the courts".
A dozen guys left San Diego Saturday morning for Tijuana and a bachelor party. Two of them were Chaldeans (Syrians that belong to the Eastern Rite Catholic Church). Those two have been in the country for more than six years, and had permanent resident visas. Sunday afternoon they found they would not be allowed back in.
Syrian Christians with green cards were turned away.
@DavidM Should have stayed home and had the party here. Especially during these political times. Hope they packed extra underwear.
