Trump: Border Security is More Important Than Trade with Mexico

President Donald Trump is very serious about border security – so serious that he recently floated the idea of shutting down trade with Mexico entirely in order to stamp down on illegal immigration, drug trafficking, human trafficking, and all of the other security concerns at the border.

Of course, those on the left were quick to declare that the sky was falling and that shutting down trade with Mexico would mean the end of the U.S. economy. While President Trump admitted that shutting down trade with Mexico would negatively impact the U.S. economy, he insisted that border security is more important. He’s right.

To start, the lack of border security is already having a major negative impact on the U.S. economy. Illegal immigrants who benefit from our society without paying into it are a major strain on taxpayers, while efforts to stop the flood of drugs, weapons, and human trafficking strain taxpayers even more. From an economic standpoint, eliminating our border security problem would just about negate any impact that shutting down trade with Mexico would have.

Economics aside, border security is still an absolute necessity. The war on drugs, the prevalence of gang activity in the United States, the ability for terrorists to easily enter our country, and more all tie back to weak border security. Compared to these problems, no longer trading with Mexico is a minor issue.

Watch Trump himself explain his stance below.
