Trump Warns He'll Dump Nafta If Mexico Doesn't Stop Drug Flows

President Trump arrives at Palm Beach International Airport in Florida for Easter weekend

Monday on The Chad Hasty Show Washington Times columnist and political analyst Matt Mackowiak joined the show to talk about immigration, Trump's comments on a DACA deal, and the Senate.

"Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release", Trump went on. He added, "Act now, Congress, our country is being stolen".

"Mexico has the absolute power not to let these large "Caravans" of people enter their country".

Trump wrote: "Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws".

"Congress must immediately pass Border Legislation, use Nuclear Option if necessary, to stop the massive inflow of Drugs and People ..."

As if confirming his previous decision on DACA, Trump returned to the subject and wrote that "DACA is dead because the Democrats didn't care or act..."

"No longer works", he continued.

President Donald Trump is calling for new border wall and immigration legislation, tweeting that moving to the "nuclear option" in the Senate is only way to muscle such a measure through Congress. "Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!"

Trump's statements appear to have come after Fox News reported on a caravan of over 1,000 Central American migrants that is now traveling through Mexico.

"More enforcement will not prevent people from coming to the United States escaping war, poverty from their home countries", she said in a telephone interview.

Smith, Warner banned from IPL
Both Warner and Smith will not be able to play for Australia for a year, as well as domestic cricket (apart from grade cricket). Former Australian cricket captain Steve Smith has also been banned from participating in this year's IPL.

Trump then tied the North American Free Trade Agreement, now being re-negotiated by the United States, Mexico, and Canada, to Trump's campaign promise to build a border wall along the southern USA border.

A group called Pueblo Sin Frontera, or People Without Borders, organized the mass movement through Mexico as a way of helping Central American migrants avoid criminal gangs and harassment by authorities as they trek to the United States border. As I previously reported, seven of the top 24 countries for DACA applicants with the highest acceptance rate are in Asia, Europe and the Caribbean.

Q Mr. President, what did you mean by no DACA deal? The president, however, rejected immigration proposals from congressional Democrats in recent months. They say some but not all of them will seek asylum if they reach the United States.

The president's position on DACA has frequently shifted.

As we've noted before, there have been Democratic and bipartisan efforts to find a solution for Dreamers. Now, despite promises to Dreamers to take action, he says "DACA is dead".

Conservative reaction to the tweets was relatively muted, and no Republican member of Congress had a comment or statement Sunday afternoon.

The Mexican peso trimmed its losses in late NY session on news of the meetings, rallying from a session low 18.355 per US dollar toward 18.20. "Sinclair is far superior to CNN and even more Fake NBC, which is a total joke", tweeted the president about criticism over a message Sinclair Broadcast Group had local news anchors deliver to their regional audiences. "Also, our fully tax paying retailers are closing stores all over the country...not a level playing field!"

Here's a closer look at Trump's tweets, fact-checked and with context.

Trump's tweets come amid tense negotiations over NAFTA between his administration and that of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. The president, who spent much of his holiday weekend golfing with supporters and watching television, was apparently reacting to a Fox and Friends segment on immigration that had aired minutes before.
