Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen released an official statement regarding the ‘migrant caravan’ members attempting to enter the country illegally this week; saying her Department is prepared to “shut down” ports of entry due to “security concerns.”

“This morning, CBP was forced to close the San Ysidro Port of Entry to ensure public safety in response to a large number of migrants seeking to enter the U.S. illegally. After being prevented from entering the Port of Entry, some of these migrants attempted to breach legacy fence infrastructure along the border and sought to harm CBP personnel by throwing projectiles at them,” said Sec. Nielsen.

“As I have continually stated, DHS will not tolerate this type of lawlessness and will not hesitate to shut down ports of entry for security reasons,” she continued. “We’ll seek to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone who destroys federal property, endangers our frontline operators, or violates our sovereignty.”
