By now you have heard about that caravan of some 1,500 families making their way through Mexico in an attempt to come here and cross our Southern border. The question is how we deal with it.
President Trump has said he would kill NAFTA if he had to. Woodlands Congressman Kevin Brady told FOX the possibility of that and a new NAFTA is very tantalizing.
“What they are putting together is the nuts and bolts of a very good trade agreement,” Brady said about the effort currently going on to update NAFTA and make it better for the U.S.
The President has also talked about using another option to secure the border.
“We have very bad laws for our border. We are going to do some things; I’ve been speaking with General Mattis. We are going to do things with our military until we can have the wall and proper security,” Trump explained.
Either way, this is something Mark Krikorian with the Center for Immigration Studies says we have to deal with.
“Are we willing to do what’s necessary to stop this from happening,” he asked.
That said there are now reports saying this caravan has been stalled while the Mexican government considers what to do with those people.
