from Conservative Review:
We can keep the ports open to commerce, secure our borders, and eat our avocados too
There is a difference between shutting down the border for commerce and suspending all immigration at our border.
The good news is that the media are finally admitting that the president has the authority to close the border. The bad news is that they are obfuscating the distinction between shutting off the entire border for commerce and suspending immigration requests at the border. The Trump administration would be wise to push back against it immediately and clarify this distinction.
The media is in full meltdown mode over Trump’s threat to “shut down” the border, as they predict doom and gloom for our economy, loss of jobs, and loss of revenue. We might even face an avocado shortage, according to the New York Times! Imagine that.
Never mind that the cost of one year’s border flow could add up to at least $150 billion for taxpayers.
