Trump Calls Out California For Suddenly Wanting Stricter Border Control
Dems have been hassling Trump about the border since practically the beginning of his presidency. Trump went to war with the Dems to get the Trump wall built and strengthen our border security. But now it appears some of the same Dems, that were all about sanctuary cities and open borders, are now trying to get tough on border security, namely Californians. California has many sanctuary cities and Governor Newsom bashed Trump for wanting the border wall, except now he should be thanking him, as Californian leaders are trying to keep illegals out since there is a serious COVID outbreak in Mexico.
"Mexico is sadly experiencing very big CoronaVirus problems, and now California, get this, doesn’t want people coming over the Southern Border. A Classic! They are sooo lucky that I am their President. Border is very tight and the Wall is rapidly being built!"
"Some believe the president put out the message in response to a letter sent out by San Diego County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar.
In her letter, dated April 19, Gaspar asks for seven measures to help Mexico control COVID-19 south of the border and to keep it from spreading to San Diego County, where there have been a reported 3,927 positive cases, four times the number just south of the border in Tijuana.
“I am writing to ask for your assistance with a growing concern south of our border,” Gaspar wrote."
"Additionally, Scripps Health President and CEO Chris Van Gorder and Sharp HealthCare COVID‐19 Strategic Response Executive Consultant Daniel Gross wrote a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf asking for help in dealing with coronavirus cases at the border.
As of Sunday, the Otay Mesa port of entry is closed to pedestrians and vehicles at night. This is apparently due to decreased traffic in that area ever since the U.S. and Mexico's agreed on March 21 to limit travel across the border to essential only."
This is why Trump wanted the border wall, to strengthen our border security and keep Americans safe. But I am sure the MSM will be thanking Trump for foreseeing a need to harden our borders anytime now...
