BORDER/IMMIGRATION/MEXICO/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The White House said Wednesday [4-4-18] it would deploy National Guard troops to the border with Mexico and would consider building a wall along at least one military base set on the border. Administration officials also said they were hoping for a high-profile congressional debate this spring and summer over U.S. protections for children and migrants seeking asylum, saying these ‘loopholes’ were encouraging illegal migration. The goal of the debate appeared to be in part to create a greater political contrast with Democrats on the issue of immigration. If Democrats resist, a senior administration official said, the administration would work to tell voters that the opposition was ‘the party of open borders.'”
