President Trump tweeted Monday that Mexican officials need to ship the thousands of Central American migrants who are seeking entrance into the United States back to the country they came from by airplane, bus, or “any way you want.” Also saying that the most of them are “stone cold criminals.” Trump has thrown the threat out there that he, if necessary, will shutdown the American border. Of course adding in at the end of his very demanding tweet, that the United States Congress needs to fund him money to build a wall.

The tweet came right after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials were forced to fire off tear gas onto a hundred or so crowd of immigrants who were trying to force their way across the border on Sunday, near San Diego.  This incident caused the United States officials to shut down the San Ysidro port of entry between San Diego and Tijuana, which lasted for more than 6 hours. This port, San Ysidro, is the largest land border crossing between the United States and Tijuana, it’s also one of the busiest land border crossing in the world. Claiming to have 70,000 northbound vehicles and 20,000 northbound pedestrians.  The reasoning for the tear gas and pepper spray was necessary due to multiple immigrants sticking the agents with rocks and such sorts, however; no injuries were caused or reported.

Kirstjen Nielsen, Department of Homeland Security Secretary, said “DHS will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security and public safety reasons,” in a statement on Sunday. Some of the immigrants were trying to gain access into the United States illegally after being denied access at the port of entry, where they could claim asylum, which isn’t illegal to seek. There were also hundreds of immigrants along the side the Mexican border who were part of a bigger group. The group had about 6,000 members who were crammed into shelters in Tijuana. Those who were on the border from there were trying to seek freedom and escape from violence. So should we let them in if they are trying to escape from the harsh environment of their hometown, or keep them out?
