Tensions rising, USA struggles with growing problem on the border

Lizeth Babuca said her city depends on the business of Mexicans who cross the border

More than half of those are families with children, who require extra care.

The attorneys general claim that Trump is disregarding the will of Congress and separation of powers by moving these funds, which hurts their states, and also failing to provide the required environmental impact statement, particularly for New Mexico and other border states.

The visit comes after Trump sparked confusion with a threat to seal the southern border.

The President's late night tweets on immigration came after he insisted that illegal crossings must be stopped as he inspected a refurbished section of fencing at the Mexican border. Such a move would have paralyzed the US auto industry as virtually every automaker sources some vehicle components from Mexico.

On Thursday, Trump indicated there would be a one-year deadline for Mexico to improve the situation before tariffs kicked in.

House Democrats officially filed their lawsuit Friday afternoon challenging President Trump's plans to shift money to build his border wall, demanding federal judges step in and referee between the two sides.

It was not immediately clear if Trump's demand for Mexico to crack down on the flow of migrants also faces a one year deadline or has to be satisfied in the near future.

"(Mexico has been) setting up checkpoints along the way to try and curtail some of this illegal crossing", Gidley said.

The president spent part of yesterday at theU.S. Mexico border pointing out a rebuilt section of wall completed last fall and claiming it as part of the wall he's been demanding be built since his 2016 campaign.

"If Mexico doesn't do what they can do very easily, apprehend these people coming in. we're going to tax the cars, and if that doesn't work, we're going to close the borders", he said.

Though Mr Trump, who has pulled a series of about-faces in recent days, walked away from this threat to close the border, he still intends to highlight conditions at the boundary with Mexico.

He said, "I have always believed there was a crisis at our southern border, but upon the conclusion of my trip today I am more convinced than ever that immediate action is necessary".

"Since our founding, this country has been a place of refuge - a safe haven for people fleeing tyranny, oppression and violence". "His words show a total disregard of the constitution, our justice system, and what it means to be an American". Rather, notes the Post, it is a long-planned replacement for older fencing in that area.

But he seemed to suggest that he might seek to punish Mexico at any time he thought the southern neighbor was not doing enough. His administration so far has only replaced existing fencing.

According to Federal Aviation Administration flight restrictions, Trump will then pay a visit to his private golf club outside Los Angeles in Palos Verdes, California.
