On Thanksgiving, Trump threatens to shut down the border

On Thanksgiving, Trump threatens to shut down the border

"If we find that it gets to a level where we are going to lose control or our people are going to get hurt, we will close entry into the country for a period of time until we can get it under control", Trump warned.

Having won control of the House in midterm elections, Democrats have said they will be even less motivated than before to meet Trump's wall demands.

The 9th Circuit recently ruled that Trump's administration is required to consider claims of asylum regardless of where migrants cross the US border. This might be the first, but we are in very, very strong negotiations in Afghanistan.

The migrants said they are carrying the white flags to show that they are peaceful, and will attempt to present themselves as asylum seekers near Baja, Calif., The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Roberts had issued a strongly worded statement Wednesday defending judicial independence and contradicting Trump over his claim that judges are partisans allied with the party of the president who nominated them. Under that new policy, Trump declared no one could apply for asylum except at an official border entry point.

He also told American service members on duty around the world, "Your courage truly inspires us". You're so anxious about the Thanksgiving holiday for them.

Trump also referred to an Indiana-born judge of Mexican descent, who was presiding over a fraud lawsuit against Trump University, as a Mexican who would be unable to rule fairly because of Trump's proposal to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

He was then asked whether he knew the timing: "I do, but can't tell you".

"They called me up".

"If they have to, they're going to use lethal force".

Speaking with a USA general in Afghanistan, Trump likened the fight against terrorists to his efforts to prevent a group of migrants from illegally entering the United States, and he assailed federal judges who have ruled against his administration.

The migrants are mostly fleeing poverty and unrest in Central America's "Northern Triangle" - El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, where gang violence has fuelled some of the highest murder rates in the world. "Judges must not Legislate Security..." the President added.

A day earlier he slammed the court because its decisions are "overturned more than any circuit in the country, 79%". He said the military was providing them "the very best Thanksgiving meal our country has to offer". Neither president nor chief justice in earlier times wanted to be thought unseemly.

The call was a uniquely Trump blend of boasting, peppered questions and off-the-cuff observations as his comments veered from venting about slights to praising troops - "You really are our heroes", he said - as club waiters worked to set Thanksgiving dinner tables on the outdoor terrace behind him.

The 9th Circuit actually ranked third in Supreme Court reversal percentages out of a total of 13 circuit courts in the nation from 2010 to 2015, according to an analysis by Politifact, based on statistics from the Supreme Court's own records.
