Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is answering the unrest at the southern U.S. border.
Nielsen says border patrol agents were required to close the port-of-entry from a statement released today, and cited “security concerns” because it is reasoning.
She explains quite a few immigrants attemptedto rush the southern border wall.
After their unsuccessful attempt they allegedly began relying on violence and throwing projectiles at border agents.
The Secretary notes the DHS will prosecute to the fullest-extent in the law anybody who destroys federal property, endangers front-line operators, or violates the nation’s sovereignty.
Further, the military will continue to be stationed with the border for security.
