President Trump has been fighting to get control of our southern border for two years now. Every step of the way he has fought against obstruction by the Democrats, the media, and Republicans who are either just as “progressive” as the left or too spineless to stand up against the bullying tactics of the left (calling them racist, bigot, etc.,). He called for zero “catch and release” for illegal migrants caught by BPS, but the separation of minors from adults (the continuation of a pre-existing policy) drew heavy criticism. He stopped the separation policy, which lead to the minors being held with adults who remained in custody; which also drew heavy criticism and has now brought a return to the “catch and release” policy to a limited basis. Trump demanded that Congress do it’s job and fund a border structure (wall, fencing, barriers designed to discourage free crossing of our southern border). Congress refused, which lead to a government shutdown at the end of which Congress still would not do it’s job. Trump the declared a “State of Emergency”, a power granted by Congress to the Office of the President, in order to obtain the funding needed to build the border structures. Now, frustrated with the lack of help from the Mexican side of the border in stopping, or at least slowing the flow of illegal migrants, President Trump is now threating to close the southern border completely. Gary S. Goldman, host of Business, Politics, & Lifestyles on WCRN in the Boston area, will join me to discuss if President Trump should close the border and if he does, what the economic impact would really be.
