Make Mexico A Prison?
Are you frustrated about illegal immigration in the US?
Are you wishing somebody would do something to stop it?
Donald Trump is demanding that Mexico prevent people from entering the United States.
On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied,..

Are you hearing that?
Do you get the implication?
In order for Mexico to stop the flow of illegal immigrants they have to actively suppress people leaving.
Think Berlin Wall.
“You can’t leave.”
Are you really sure that is what you want?
Our President encouraging other nations to keep their people in?
Apparently the US military is giving local law enforcement in the USA some of their tools of war:
Coming soon to your local sheriff: 18-ton, armor-protected military fighting vehicles with gun turrets and bulletproof glass that were once the U.S. answer to roadside bombs during the Iraq war.
The hulking vehicles, built for about $500,000 each at the height of the war, are among the biggest pieces of equipment that the Defense Department is giving to law enforcement agencies under a national military surplus program.
For police and sheriff’s departments, which have scooped up 165 of the mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles, or MRAPS, since they became available this summer, the price and the ability to deliver shock and awe while serving warrants or dealing with hostage standoffs was just too good to pass up.
“It’s armored. It’s heavy. It’s intimidating. And it’s free,” said Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, among five county sheriff’s departments and three other police agencies in New York that have taken delivery of an MRAP.
