ABOVE VIDEO: Trump threatens to close border if Mexico ‘doesn’t get with it’

(FOX NEWS) – Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen affirmed Friday that the possibility of closing the southern border with Mexico is “on the table.”

Nielsen made the remarks during a phone call with reporters, adding, “If we have to close ports to take care of all of the numbers that are coming, we will do that. … It’s on the table.”

The question arose after President Trump tweeted out that “if Mexico doesn’t immediately stop ALL illegal immigration coming into the United States throug (sic) our Southern Border, I will be CLOSING……..the Border, or large sections of the Border, next week.”

Nielsen asserted that there are so many people coming to the areas between legal ports of entry that DHS is being forced to reallocate its resources, basically taking personnel from legal sites and sending them to the portions of the border where migrants are slipping in illegally.
