WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said without evidence on Thursday that Arizona “is bracing for a massive surge” of immigrants along a portion of the U.S. southern border that does not have a protective fence, reiterating his call for Democrats to back funding for his proposed border wall.
“Arizona, together with our Military and Border Patrol, is bracing for a massive surge at a NON-WALLED area. WE WILL NOT LET THEM THROUGH,” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.
