A local resident said that Mexican cartel members have threatened her family. Her husband had to use a gun to fend off a dozen illegals entering her property heading for the house. She says it is unsafe to go outside without a gun and her neighbors are afraid to call Border Patrol due to threats by drug smugglers.
Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said she is canceling President Trump’s State-of-the-Union address until the government is reopened. Trump countered by denying military air transportation for her public-relations trip to Brussels and Afghanistan, leaving her only the option of flying commercial.
Mexican President Pena Nieto cancelled his meeting with President Trump after Trump tweeted that there was no point in having the meeting unless Nieto was ready to talk about funding the border wall. Then Nieto made statements that, in more sane times, would be considered as a declaration of war. He said that Mexico would use its consulates in every US state to help illegal immigrants get taxpayer-funded benefits and to protect them while they reject assimilation into America, which amounts to an invasion by a foreign country. The Mexican President is supporting the globalist agenda of breaking down the US to the point where it cannot survive without UN permission and control.
