San Ysidro, CA. Hundreds of asylum-seeking Hondurans stormed the heavily fortified wall today at this port of entry for those seeking to enter the United States. U. S. border patrol agents used tear gas to turn away the throng when some of the refugees allegedly hurled rocks at the border guards.

On the American side of the border, a number of peaceful protesters sympathetic to those seeking asylum carried signs parodying a Mother Goose rhyme and aimed at President Donald Trump's obsession with construction of a wall along the entire border with Mexico. The signs read:

Grumpy Trump, he wanted a wall.

Frumpy Trump, he threatened us all.

"Fund my wall now, folks, or government stops."

And that made all Wall Street bears lick their chops.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
