Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, under heavy pressure from within the Trump administration to reduce illegal immigration, said Friday that “every option is on the table“ to halt the flow of migrants to the southwest border.
Speaking at a recently completed 30-foot section of border wall in Calexico, Calif., Nielsen said the administration will announce in the coming days measures to address a caravan of Central American migrants traveling through Mexico en route to the United States.
“We are looking at every possible way, within the legal construct that we have, to make sure that those who do not have a legal right to enter this country are not coming,“ she said. “Everything is on the table.”
“30-foot section.” Heh.
