The Real Prime Target Of Trumpís Threat To Close The Border

American Thinker
By Thomas Lifson
April 2, 2019

Excerpt:

I think that President Trump is going after what the Left calls ďroot causesĒ in their typical grab for money to redistribute, purportedly to eliminate some social problem they blame on poverty. But Trump is not seeking a nebulous version of Ultimate Social Justice, he focused on the real obstacles to immigration reform, and I think he has a specific goal in mind as he threatens a complete border closure.

Simply stated, at home, Trump wants big business, as embodied in the US Chamber of Commerce, to grasp that he will not allow them to continue stonewall on open borders, targeting their donations to prevent any legal reform. Ever since NAFTA, huge investments have taken place predicted (sic) on the free movement of good across the border. Those investments are now held hostage by Trumpís threat. The implicit deal: either loudly and emphatically lobby for a simple revision to immigration law to allow asylum claimants to wait on the southern side of the border while their claims are adjudicated or endure a semi-catastrophic disruption.

Trump knows that he has an excellent public case to make for this simple reform. With illegals now well aware that bringing along minors and an asylum claim guarantee admission to the USA, a hundred thousand a month are flooding in. The claims of a ďmanufactured crisisĒ look silly. Even Jeh Johnson, Obamaís DHS secretary admits it is real.

But with the C of C directing massive donations to Republicans to help sabotage reform, and to Democrats to stonewall it, no progress can be made. If Trump is able to carry out the threat and make it stick, the C of C and its big business constituents might well decide that a push for asylum claim reform is in their interest. Especially since the change in asylum reform would have minimal impact on the availability of laborers. The problem is with families and children.

If Trump is able to stick it to the Chamber of Commerce or better still get them to agree to his terms regarding immigration reform and enforcement? He will achieve Teddy Roosevelt level status of trust-busting.

WTF is "avocado toast"? Closing the border will remind Mexico that they need us more than we have to put up with them.

Yup. I love avocados. I could eat them every day. But if it means finally securing our out-of-control southern border, I'll do without.

I asked the same question on another blog and I guess it is just sliced avocado on toast.

You use it instead of butter on toast, toast your bread then smear/spread avocado on it. It's yummy. But like I say, I can live without avocados to seal the border.

Let's see.... just started my garden Monday

Cucumbers.. check
Tomatoes...both Cherry and regular check and check
Eggplant...check
Greens...check
Bell Peppers...check
Edamame Peas...check

Anything else that I can't do without which comes from south of the border?

Plus, all the produce and commerce can simply come in via ship anyways. We have far greater control of those ports and the logistics are just as good vs trucks anyhow. Might even be cheaper and not much longer as well.

I caught an add for The Late Show. The host was commenting on how Trump was going to anger all the college students who's spring break he would be ruining.

He missed the point that if Trump closed the border Mexico would be missing out on all that American money those college students would not be spending.

I like them in salads and guacamole too but one of my favorite sandwiches is tuna salad, a layer of cream cheese with avocados sliced on top. Needless to say I rarely eat them or I'd be big as a house.

I doubt they'd grow well here in NW WA state...
