The migrant caravan’s attempts to invade America are even worse than anyone thought.
Thousands of migrants appeared on the U.S.-Mexican border and demanded entry into the United States.
And now they shut down the border with this crazy stunt.
Thousands of migrants were planning to storm The San Ysidro Port in an attempt to illegally enter America.
As a response, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen announced the government was closing the port.
The Daily Caller reports:
Homeland security officials shut down all northbound lanes at the San Ysidro port of entry early Monday morning, after receiving reports that caravan migrants were planning to rush the border and cross illegally, U.S. officials said.
Port operations were suspended for just over three hours while border authorities, supported by military personnel deployed to the area, carried out “hardening efforts” at the facility, according to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
“This AM, all of #SanYsidro Port of Entry’s northbound lanes were temporarily closed to initiate additional port hardening efforts after @CBP officials were notified that a large # of caravan migrants were planning to rush the border in an attempt to gain illegal access to the US,” Nielsen wrote on Twitter.
The closure at San Ysidro, one of the world’s busiest land border crossings, began at 3:15 a.m. Monday and was lifted at 6:25 a.m., according to DHS officials. When northbound traffic resumed, port authorities were operating 15 entry lanes, down from 23 lanes before the temporary suspension.
The San Ysidro port of entry handles 20,000 cases and 70,000 pedestrians crossing the border on a daily basis.
The migrant invaders picked this port of entry as their staging ground because they figured the Border Patrol was already stretched thin.
But Trump and his team foiled this plot by closing down the port of entry before the migrant invaders could execute their plan.
