      Of course Polly leaves out the fact that Mexico has turned back over 6,000 illegal immigrants since then....but carry on.

        Your other retard marxist buddy posted this too in the box.

        You realize Mexico has promised this repeatedly through the years, right.

        But only Trump has caused it to actually happen.

          If they agreed months ago, then why did they wait until a few days ago to take any action?

                Well-beamed laser spot, Swonkey.
                When Trump's 8 years are completed, the left will "trump-ette" that he accomplished nothing. So far, they've mudslung hoax-evil crimes that he never got near. So far, TDS is an incurabull chronix raging infection.
                What the Left so harangue as the world hating Trump's America is their contorting towards respect for a change. And new and better "dealings" are resulting.

                Just think how smooth America's sailing, once Trump's ship is unlashed from the restraining-ropes by the Kerry groupies, by Nadler needling, etc.

                  You do realize that in the last 6 months over 600,000 illegal aliens have traveled through Mexico and crossed our southern border don't you? If this agreement was "hammered out" as you claim months ago then why didn't they stop the hordes? Nervous Nancy is beside herself, she knows that the immigration victory Trump has pulled off while away in France doesn't bode well for that superb lineup of 2020 thoroughbreds.

                    Talks were secret.

                    ” But the Mexican government had already pledged to do that in March during secret talks in Miami between Kirstjen Nielsen, then the secretary of homeland security, and Olga Sanchez, the Mexican secretary of the interior, the officials said.

                      Yes and remember they did stop people for a bout a week or so back in March-April.....then they stopped again…..I recommend you not playing Poker with real money.....This is only Trump buying time to get more of the wall built before they quit stopping people again....And we threaten tariffs again...rinse and repeat.

                          I feel that’s not relevant.

                            ... so in the dealings with the Mexicans who are illegal, who run the businesses of sex-trafficking, drug-smuggling, so in those cases we should mistrust our President, the oath-sworn boarder officers, plus all the President's appointees.

                            So what if a tariff-threat faked out the adversary? One cannot succeed in a bluff if you let the public know. And in this case (sex trafficking, drugs influx) lives could be spared by the bluff working.

                                  So they pledged to do "something" in March and for over the two months following record numbers continued to flood over the border unabated by Mexico. So Trump gets fed up, threatens them with tariffs and, Presto! Mexico somehow finds a way to actually DO "something".

                                  We'll see how long this "something" lasts before more threats prove necessary.

                                          All I have seen from liberals is bash Trump on anything he he does. Never any ideas from the left, just anti trump.

                                                Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
