WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Senate Republican chief Mitch McConnell stated closing the U.S. border with Mexico might have devastating financial penalties, and joined his Democratic colleagues in warning President Donald Trump towards such a transfer.

“Closing down the border would have doubtlessly catastrophic financial affect on our nation and I might hope we might not be doing that form of factor,” McConnell informed reporters on the Capitol.
