'Our country is full': Trump claims emergency during border visit

DHS sending 750 more agents to U.S.-Mexico border over 'influx'

Trump's new border policy was first announced in a confusing statement to journalists at a White House meeting on the completely unconnected subject of United States urban renewal. I'll do one or the other. One economist predicted that would cause the entire United States auto industry to shut down within a week, because every U.S. auto plant depends on parts made in Mexico.

"The system is full".

Mr Trump has yet to complete any new mileage of fencing or other barriers anywhere on the border.

Trump's "tougher direction" statement suggests he may pressure Department of Homeland Secretary (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to implement policies that top agency staffers oppose, such as rejecting legal interpretations and bureaucratic practices set by former President Barack Obama. "I may shut it down at some point but I´d rather do tariffs", he said. That wave is expected to deliver one million migrants into the United States by October, and it is made possible because Democrats are blocking any reform the border loopholes.

He also said that Mexico was apprehending migrants "by the thousands", doing more in the past four days than they have ever done before, but if that does not stem the flow of migrants he is "totally willing to close the border". "Over 100,00 Americans die each year, sooo many families destroyed!" the president tweeted.

Though Mr Trump, who has pulled a series of about-faces in recent days, walked away from this threat to close the border, he still intends to highlight conditions at the boundary with Mexico.

"America is facing an unprecedented crisis at the border", he said. And on Thursday, Mexico's ambassador to the U.S. Martha Barcena told The Associated Press the country was working to make its own border "more orderly" but "migration will never be stopped".

"Also, I'm looking at an economic penalty for all of the drugs that are coming in through the southern border and killing our people", he told reporters in Washington before departing for southern California.

Trump would sideline USMCA for new auto tariffs

Trump loves to dangle the threat of auto tariffs in worldwide negotiations, and suggested in February that he might impose duties on vehicles made inside the European Union.

On Thursday he added a new threat, warning of hefty tariffs on cars made in Mexico if the country doesn't abide by his demands.

"The tariffs will work just like they've worked with steel", he said. The furor over family separations last summer helped to highlight the fact that families won't be detained for long in the US if they're detained at all.

It also was unclear where Trump got the $500 billion figure.

Vitiello is a longtime law enforcement employee, having first joined the Border Patrol in 1985. More than half of those are families with children, who require extra care.

Although the wall - his signature campaign promise - remains unbuilt, Trump declared that at least 400 miles of the border barrier would be erected over the next two years even as he tried to blame Democrats for a lack of progress on the wall. The president vetoed House-passed legislation to terminate the emergency declaration, prompting the lawsuit.

Administration officials had been studying ways to minimize the economic impact of a potential border closure in case Trump went through with his threat, including keeping trucking lanes open or closing only certain ports.
