Trump Puts Timeline on Emergency Border Closure as Beto Rises

The media is obviously hoping to put open-border Beto against wall-touting Trump for the sake of ratings, but will Americans fall for it?

The mainstream media is quickly determining a new strategy to keep their viewership numbers up.

You see, after the release of the Barr summary of the Mueller report, the infotainment industry took a nasty nosedive.  No longer were the masses drawn to the television to hear about “Russian collusion”, and, in all honesty, it seemed a bit early to start covering the 2020 election in earnest.

But now, with their backs against the wall, the media is finding a way to bring eyes back to their product, and they are doing so in pitting Donald Trump directly against 2020 democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke in a battle over the border.

O’Rourke, from El Paso, Texas, is running on an inclusive platform that many believe will include an “open borders” plan.

President Trump, on the other hand, is sprinting in the other direction.

President Trump on Friday threatened to close the Southern Border next week if Mexico does not “immediately stop” the record-breaking surge of illegal immigrants flooding into the United States.

Trump’s warning comes as Customs and Border Protection officials say March is on pace to exceed 100,000 border apprehensions — the highest monthly total in a decade. According to CBP, this week alone, agents have more than 12,000 migrants in custody.

“The DEMOCRATS have given us the weakest immigration laws anywhere in the World. Mexico has the strongest, & they make more than $100 Billion a year on the U.S.,” Trump tweeted. “Therefore, CONGRESS MUST CHANGE OUR WEAK IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW, & Mexico must stop illegals from entering the U.S. through their country and our Southern Border.”

Not a day later, Beto O’Rourke was onstage in El Paso to officially kick off his 2020 campaign, rife with anti-Trump sentiment and messages seemingly advocating for open borders.

With Joe Biden suddenly succumbing to #MeToo accusations, O’Rourke could find himself as the de facto frontrunner for the democrats – something that the media will likely propagate on account of he and President Trump’s diametrically-opposed views on immigration.

After all, the mainstream infotainment industry would cease to exist without such conflict.
