Stevens, nonetheless, stays bullish on the border state of affairs in Mexico.
“There isn’t any disaster, all people is aware of that. The one disaster is the stain I’m about to go away on all these troopers’ sheets,” he stated, winking emphatically. “In reality, I’m going to be opening loads of borders, if what I imply.
