A San Diego border crossing was shut down Sunday (November 26) after hundreds of migrants tried to enter the United States and were stopped with tear gas and a police blockade.
Migrants, including young children, ran away, choking on tear gas before the Trump Administration tweeted in defense of his border policies. He also says that officials should ship thousands of Central American migrants back to the countries they came from.
Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries. Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!— Donald J.

Your policy is not the same as @BarackObama Tear gassing asylum seekers and demonizing them on social media does nothing to make us safer or promote American values. The orderly processing of the asylum seekers claims will do both.— Judge Clay Jenkins (@JudgeClayJ) November 26, 2018
Percentage wise, I think I’d bet on there being more criminals in your staff than there are at the border. Unfortunately, you couldn’t take that wager as all your casinos have failed.— Jason Hoffman (@HoffmanJason) November 26, 2018
Physically taking people and moving them against their will is called kidnapping. Just fyi.— Heather, HBIC (@seraphicpetal) November 26, 2018
