Trump Says Deported Gang Members Coming Back Into U.S. ‘Like Water’: ‘We Need The Wall!’

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday morning to call for his long-promised border wall, explaining that it is needed to thwart deported MS-13 gang members from returning to the United States.

“MS-13 gang members are being removed by our Great ICE and Border Patrol Agents by the thousands, but these killers come back in from El Salvador, and through Mexico, like water,” Trump tweeted. “El Salvador just takes our money, and Mexico must help MORE with this problem. We need The Wall!”

It’s unclear today what is meant by Trump’s infamous “Wall!” proposal — first pitched as a mighty 40-foot monolith covering the entirety of the Southern Border, the White House now says the wall is really more a euphemism for “border security.”

Trump is expected to give a speech at the CPAC conference this morning, so expect him to bring up the wall before a rowdy crowd of MAGA-hat clad activists.
