The Homeland Security Secretary has likened the immigration crisis to a ‘Cat 5 hurricane disaster’ and revealed plans to send soldiers along the Mexican border.

Speaking on Tucker Carlson Tonight Tuesday, Kirstjen Nielsen said the Trump administration was treating the issue like a natural disaster, adding: ‘We are bringing all of the agencies together; we’re asking everybody to chip in.’

‘Why wouldn’t we put the U.S. military along our border if it’s really a crisis of that magnitude?’ the Fox News show host asked Secretary Nielsen.

‘I think we’re looking into that. We’ve made the request. I’m in constant contact with the acting secretary of defense,’ she said.

‘I talked to some of the combatant commanders today. We are in fact pushing more and more military resources to the border,’ Nielsen added.

Nielsen’s comments come a day after President Donald Trump threatened to close the border this week if Congress doesn’t change America’s immigration laws.

‘I’m ready to close it, if I have to close it,’ he told reporters on Tuesday in the Oval Office.

Trump complained that the U.S. has the ‘worst, dumbest immigration system in the world,’ and he said he’s lobbying congressional Democrats to change it.
