St. Louis, MO: In a series of tweets on Sunday and Monday mornings, President Trump warned of the massive caravan of Central American migrants marching through Mexico right now toward our southern border. He called on Republicans in Congress to act immediately on measures to strengthen the border and end more dangerous immigration practices. One of his statements read: "Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!"
"Phyllis Schlafly Eagles is thrilled to see the Trump Administration taking a stand to stop this migrant caravan from Central America and to follow through on yet another campaign promise from 2016," said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. "Phyllis Schlafly demanded for years that Congress rein in lawless Obama-era policies that allowed for the mass entrance of refugees and immigrants without proper background checks or appropriate restrictions. President Trump has signaled that he will follow through on his campaign promises to end dangerous immigration policies and to fight to secure our borders.
"We urge Congress to follow the President's warning about the coming caravan. This is a golden opportunity for Republicans and Democrats alike to prove to American voters that they take our national sovereignty seriously. Phyllis Schlafly Eagles will work tirelessly to remind voters who in public office took action to defend our American jobs, families, and values.
"With midterm primaries upon them, we urge Congress to put American citizens first. They must pass measures swiftly and avoid the gridlock for which the swamp is so despised."
