Invasion of the US Southern Border Guided by Leftists
There is a war on the US-Mexican border, and American leftists are guiding and financing it, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich claimed Monday, while commenting on reports of clashes between migrants and Border Patrol agents at the California border.
“This war on the border is real,” Speaker Gingrich said in a TV interview early Monday.
“What people are trying to do is a psychological war, very often guided, by the way, by American leftists who are activists and American left-wing organizations who are helping finance it.”
This is happening, Speaker Gingrich said, because “their goal is to find some way to embarrass the US government so we cannot even control our own border, and we have to be prepared to stand up to that, and to do whatever is necessary.”
However, Congress has been failing to act for years, Speaker Gingrich said, even back when he was “with President Ronald Reagan trying to get those things done.”
“You are either going to have a country and have a border or you are not going to have a country,” said Speaker Gingrich.
However, he said there are also conservative businesses who “want cheap labor,” but also a “number of left-wingers who do not believe in borders.”
Meanwhile, there are “at least 100 million people who would come to the US,” said Speaker Gingrich. “I think this is a very serious moment. I think President Donald Trump is doing the right thing.”
Monday, President Donald Trump threatened to shut the US-Mexico border “permanently,” while calling on Mexico to deport “flag waving migrants” a day after several people tried to illegally cross the border.
“Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries,” the President tweeted. “Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the USA. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!
Sunday, the that Mexico’s Interior Ministry had announced it will deport some 500 migrants who attempted to storm the US border.
