BORDER OFFICIAL LEADER: TRUMP’S TARIFF DEAL WITH MEXICO IS JUST THE OUT-OF-THE-BOX THINKING WE NEED

Lord, we thank you for creative thinking that can produce solutions. We pray that this deal with Mexico will provide the incentive to reduce illegal immigration into our nation.
526 People Prayed

Against nearly insurmountable odds, President Trump proved his critics wrong once again by getting Mexico to agree Friday to step up its efforts to reduce illegal immigration to the U.S. This is a victory not just for the president but for the U.S. because it will strengthen our national security and uphold the rule of law.

This win by our president shows he understands that politely asking other countries to change their behavior when it harms us isn’t always enough. Sometimes, our government needs to put pressure on other nations – and as President Trump showed once again, pressure works.

Facing the largest border security crisis in the history of the United States, and knowing the Mexican economy is completely reliant on U.S. trade, Trump pulled out all the stops. He threatened Mexico with economically crippling tariffs if our southern neighbor didn’t step up and agree to become a true partner in border security.

Critics on the right and left blasted Trump, saying he was behaving recklessly and irresponsibly to threaten to impose 5 percent tariffs on everything Mexico imports into the U.S. if that nation didn’t move to fight illegal immigration. Trump even threatened to escalate those tariffs by 5 percent a month if Mexico failed to act, so that the tariffs would hit 25 percent in October.

But, as we’ve often seen, President Trump’s critics were wrong again. Trump’s tariff threat got the immediate attention of Mexico’s leaders, who realized Trump was serious and they had better act – fast. They signed an agreement pledging a series of actions to reduce illegal immigration.

As the current president of the National Border Patrol Council – the exclusive labor representative of approximately 16,000 Border Patrol agents – I know President Trump is absolutely right when he says we are facing an illegal immigration crisis on our southern border. This is why the National Border Patrol Council fully supports the president in his effort to protect our nation from illegal immigrants and illegal drug smuggling.

The facts support the president. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said this week that it apprehended 144,278 people trying to enter our country in May – nearly three times the number who tried to enter in May 2018. Democratic claims that this isn’t a crisis would be laughable if the issue wasn’t so serious. . . .

Tariffs were not President Trump’s first choice for convincing Mexico to get serious about stopping illegal immigration. They were not even his second choice. President Trump has been asking Mexico for voluntary cooperation for over a year.

But instead of providing the needed cooperation, Mexico continued taking advantage of the United States’ weak immigration policies that prevailed under the Obama administration. So President Trump substituted strength for weakness, sending a warning that Mexican officials knew they could not ignore.

In hopes of thwarting the president’s single biggest campaign promise – securing the border – Democrats chose to be obstructionists by refusing to fund President Trump’s border security initiatives. These initiatives were devised by nonpartisan border security experts – not politicians.

Undaunted by the partisan Democrats, President Trump made no secret of his intent to think outside the box and come up with solutions of his own. And that’s exactly what he did. . . .

The historic agreement will end the magnet known as catch-and-release. It will free up valuable Border Patrol resources. It will save American taxpayers billions of dollars that otherwise would have been used to fund the many social programs, medical care, housing, education and incarceration (among other things) for illegal immigrants in the United States.

If Mexico follows through on this agreement, the Border Patrol will finally stop being a quasi-social services agency. We will once again become a law enforcement agency. This will allow us to properly focus on the criminal elements and dangerous drugs that flow across our borders, thereby protecting the safety and well-being of the United States citizens we serve.

And the political implications of all this? Overall, I see it as a big plus for President Trump. If Mexico does what it says it will do, the president can rightfully claim to have solved a problem that his predecessors either couldn’t solve – or worse, refused to solve.

The American people want their elected officials to be problem-solvers. And that’s what President Trump is. If all goes well with the agreement with Mexico on immigration, the president’s chances for re-election are now greater than ever. More importantly, the American people and our country will benefit by the Trump victory in the fight over illegal immigration.

  1. Dear Mr President as has been said trying to sweet talk with the Mexican government hasn’t done anything. You are smart and wise in saying they will pay with these tariffs in the event that they won’t cooperate with USA. However. We pray and believe they will come to their senses and Listen before penalties fall in Jesus name
    AMEN

  2. Lord, continue to bless President Trump. Keep him strong and give him wise counsel about the border. A country without a border is not a country. Protect and send those who come here back to their country of birth. Lord, be with those trying to change the political mess south of Mexico. Raise up righteous, godly leaders who are strong in the Word of the Lord to create jobs for their citizens, protection from the drug cartels, MS-13 and those who do evil in the sight of the Lord. God is on the move and will not abandon his people. With our prayers God works through us to help His plans that the captives will be freed to worship Him.

  3. Lord God, thank you for leading and guiding President Trump in problem solving such a complicated issue. Thank you that these border patrol agents will be able now to do their job and that our nation will be safer from dangerous illegal immigrants. Continue to give wisdom, insight, and discernment to our president and surround him with godly, sound counsel. Expose those who are attempting to cause him harm and enlighten the minds of the citizenry to the lies of the enemy of truth. Psalm 33:10-12: The Lord foils the plans of the nations; He thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of His heart through all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for His inheritance.
    In the mighty name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

    1. Dear LORD, help the people of South America hear Your voice and obey You. Order the steps of their leaders to cooperate with President Trump to create and keep security at and on both sides of the border. Dear LORD, deliver us from the destructive arrows of the enemy on both sides. Turn South America around to honor You. Create safety, true freedom, and honorable jobs there, so that they will find joy and contentment staying in their own birthplace. Open the eyes of those fighting against border security here, to see that the resources, time, and energy we’re spending on those who are illegal is needed for our own legal citizens. Dear LORD, I pray that we will begin to use more of these resources to get to the root of and heal our own problems. mental health, despair,
      homelessness, addiction, suicide, and all other deceptions of the enemy. Dear LORD, protect our nation’s sons and daughters. In Jesus name. Amen.
