Mitch McConnell Warns Closing Mexico Border Would Be Devastating

Reuters reports Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell joined Democrats on Tuesday in warning President Donald Trump that closing the U.S. border with Mexico could have devastating economic consequences.

McConnell told reporters at the Capitol, โ€œClosing down the border would have potentially catastrophic economic impact on our country and I would hope we would not be doing that sort of thing." Trump has said he will close the border if he cannot reach a deal with Congress to pass stricter immigration laws.
