The Dems are not for open borders. Trump has closed some of the usual entry points and made long wait times to enter legally. Without Mexicans to pick our fruit and vegetables we would soon run out of fresh produced because it is next to impossible to find American citizens to do that work. Ask anyone who employs them.


U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reportedly closed the pedestrian and vehicle bridges at the San Ysidro port of entry near San Diego, Calif., on Sunday.

CNN reported that the roads and bridges at the entry point have been closed in both directions, and additional personnel has been dispatched to the area in anticipation of the arrival of Central American migrants who are part of a so-called caravan.

San Ysidro is one of the largest land border crossings between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, where hundreds of migrants have been staying in recent days before attempting to enter the U.S


WASHINGTON Sen. Ted Cruz joined other congressional Republicans representing border states Wednesday in warning President Donald Trump against closing the U.S.-Mexico border, saying such a move would be "devastating" to Texas.

"Of course, we should secure the border. We must. Our broken immigration system and years of unwillingness to secure our southern border has produced a security and humanitarian crisis," Cruz said a statement.

"But the answer is not to punish those who are legally crossing the border. The answer is not to punish Texas farmers and ranchers and manufacturers and small businesses," he said. "Closing legal points of entry would harm American commerce and legal transit between Mexico and the United States, and leave coyotes and human traffickers to roam free in the wilderness of our unsecured border."
