(Newser) – President Trump unleashed a Twitter attack on Mexico over the weekend, and he picked up right where he left off on Monday morning. In multiple tweets, Trump said Mexico must do more to stop "caravans of people" heading into the US, blasted Democrats for weak border laws, and again demanded his wall. In regard to those "caravans," a reference to reports about a large group of Central Americans working their way northward through Mexico: "They must stop them at their Northern Border, which they can do because their border laws work, not allow them to pass through into our country, which has no effective border laws," Trump wrote.

The president made a point to include Democrats in the blame game. "Congress must immediately pass Border Legislation, use Nuclear Option if necessary, to stop the massive inflow of Drugs and People," he wrote. "Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are GREAT, but the weak Dem laws don’t allow them to do their job. Act now Congress, our country is being stolen!" He again brought up the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and reiterated that he was through trying to resurrect it. "DACA is dead because the Democrats didn’t care or act, and now everyone wants to get onto the DACA bandwagon," he wrote. "No longer works. Must build Wall and secure our borders with proper Border legislation. Democrats want No Borders, hence drugs and crime!" (Read more President Trump stories.)
