As the “migrant caravan” surges through Mexico toward the U.S. border, U.S. officials are debating how to handle the mass of people once they arrive and demand entry into the Promised Land.

Tensions are high inside the Trump White House, The New American reported yesterday, with the president’s aides and officials arguing about the president’s options.

But a former federal prosecutor says debate is unnecessary. Trump can close the border.

The Law, the Court Case, and the Criminal Flood
Writing first at the Daily Caller and then speaking on Breitbart Radio, Sidney Powell, former Assistant United States Attorney and Appellate Section Chief in the Western and Northern Districts of Texas, says no one can stop the president from closing the borders to protect the country from dangerous aliens. In this case, the danger is 14,000 people who will immediately become a burden on public schools, the healthcare system, and police and criminal courts.

Title 8, Chapter 12 of the U.S. Code, which governs “inadmissible aliens,” Powell wrote, gives Trump the right to shut down the border.

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

The U.S. Supreme Court recently reaffirmed the president’s authority in the case Hawaii brought against him because of the wrongly named “Muslim ban.”

That statute, the court opined, “entrusts to the President the decisions whether and when to suspend entry, whose entry to suspend, for how long, and on what conditions. It thus vests the President with ‘ample power’ to impose entry restrictions in addition to those elsewhere enumerated in the [Immigration and Nationality Act]…. The sole prerequisite set forth … is that the President “find” that the entry of the covered aliens “would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.”
