President Trump threatened again on Thursday to close the southern border, accusing Mexico of not helping to stop the flow of illegal immigrants.

Trump’s new threat came in a series of early morning tweets.

The President accused Mexico of being “all talk and no action” on immigration and ended by saying, “May close the Southern Border!”

Nearly $2 billion in trade flows across the Mexican border daily, as well as hundreds of thousands of workers.

During a 5-hour shutdown in the San Diego sector in November, businesses in San Ysidro along lost an estimated $5.3 million.
