If they close the southern USA border, what's the worst it could happen. Can people still legally cross the border?

    Actually closing the border would be economically devastating to the US. Alot of goods travel back and forth, as do alot of legal tourists...in both directions.

    Border closures like that are usually either temporary or very localized to deal with a specific issue.

    No. A closed border means just that - closed.

    No, no commerce or traffic across the boarder, and if we did it, Mexico would stop the caravans within 72 hours, of lost commerce.

    Like everyone says, Trade and business would stop. It would hurt the USA more than Mexico. This is just more proof how poor a president Trump is.

    Probably not. All ports of entry will close. Trucks carrying goods either way will be stopped. Auto and foot traffic for visitors to Mexico and from Mexico will not pass.

    Should cost US companies several tens of millions a day. Might cost Mexico a few million also.

    A lot of commerce will be affected. Goods and manufacturing parts (including many car parts) cross the border on a regular basis. If these are stopped then a lot of business will lose money. A lot of people also travel across the border regularly and these people's lives will be affected. Spring break is also happening, and that means a lot of student may be stuck in Mexico and cannot get back in time for school. It means GDP growth will take a hit.

    Trump once again shows that he creates new problems when he tries to solve a non-existent problem.

    The southern border doesn't need to be closed - illegals need to be stopped from sneaking in. Illegals are the ones making it difficult for those who want to immigrate to the USA.
