Hubris Rides Laredo: Trump Visits Border After Patrol Pulls Invite


If anything, he's a man of conviction and though he has no firearms; Donald Trump sticks to his guns. Even deep in the heart of Texas. Despite his invitation to the border town of Laredo being withdrawn by the US Border Patrol Council, Trump landed at the Laredo International Airport Thursday. The council withdrew their invitation in the morning. During a press conference Trump answered questions focused on immigration, in particular his narrative of Mexico sending criminals across the border in the US. When asked by reporters to verify his claims, Trump simply replied in the affirmative. Though his anecdotal statements gave an impression he had spoken with sources that could prove his claims; he made his comments about an hour after his arrival. Trump offered no specific evidence, instead saying evidence will be shown.

  • Trump Pitches U.S. Immigration Overhaul Looking To 2020 Election

    According to a report by Reuters, on Thursday, President Donald Trump proposed overhauling the US immigration system to favor young, educated, English-speaking applicants instead of people with family ties to Americans, a plan that faces an uphill battle in Congress but gives Trump a platform for his 2020 re-election campaign.

Trump reportedly said, "If for some reason, possibly political, we can’t get the Democrats to approve this merit-based, high-security plan, then we will get it approved immediately after the election when we take back the House, keep the Senate, and, of course, hold the presidency."
