People living near border slam Trump’s threat to close U.S. border with Mexico

Mexican and U.S. citizens who live near the border separating San Diego and Tijuana said a threat from U.S. President Donald Trump to close the southern U.S. border with Mexico unless he gets the money he wants for a wall would wreak havoc on their livelihoods.

Tens of thousands of Mexicans enter the United States daily to work or study and a closure of the border could mean they can no longer cross upending their lives.

Asked about Trump’s threat, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador told reporters it was an internal U.S. government matter.

Lopez Obrador added, however: “Of course we will always defend our sovereignty … we have already demonstrated our respect for (migrants) human right to migrate.”
