The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the largest U.S. business lobbying group, has been in contact with the White House to discuss the "very negative economic consequences that would occur across the country," said Neil Bradley, the group's top lobbyist, on a call with reporters.

I really wanted to close it, Trump said on Tuesday night at a fundraiser for congressional Republicans.
“They say they’re going to stop them. Let’s see. They have the power to stop them, they have the laws to stop them,” Trump said earlier on Tuesday.
Trump never intended to close the border. Ever.
He needs to stick with it, It’s working already, They are starting to sweat.
They say theyre going to stop them. Lets see. That is what Trump wanted to begin with, sounds like he got it.
How about the economic fallout of all these people invading our country, and putting extraordinary strains on our resources?
Trump delivers ultimatum to Congress: Immigration deal or border closure
After many years (decades), Mexico is apprehending large numbers of people at their Southern Border, mostly from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. They have ALL been taking U.S. money for years, and doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for us, just like the Democrats in Congress!
I havent seen any Democrats down here at the Border working with us or asking to speak to any of us. They have an open invitation. We are getting overrun, our facilities are overcapacity. We are at an emergency crisis. Art Del Cueto, National Border Patrol Council.
The Chamber of Commerce is a globalist org. They are not America’s friend.
I hope not but suspect you are correct. Else, my worry, is he’ll take some half-baked action, let the courts shut it down before the ink is dry, then complain. Some might disagree, but I do think this is a repeated pattern. Blaming the courts doesn’t excuse it in my opinion as some of the actions really are half-baked.
The Chamber of Commerce is a globalist org. They are not Americas friend.
It’s a race to see who can be more disloyal to the POTUS hand that feeds them. President Trump’s Generals had the early lead but the open borders agenda corporate tax gifted Chamber of Crony Capitalism is gaining on them fast.
Like this was not obvious last week?
Nobody should make promises or threats they can’t keep.
Bluffing is for poker.
You haven’t read “The Art of War”, have you. Sword of Damacles hanging over the COCs and the like and their minions. Trump doesn’t bluff. Immigration will solved shortly, OR ELSE.
This isn’t a bluff. It is an or else.
The President seems to feel that he can change laws by ignoring them and not having his staff check the legal feasibiity before he declares some new action. My brother who lives in New York state was doing architectural work at a historic site which had been bought by Mafia folks as a tax shelter. He had a terrible time trying to get them to follow the laws for historic sites. He said even when the law would work better, they got a perverse pleasure out of cutting corners when trying to get things done. So, is it a New York thing, or a Mafia thing?
