This will probably be one of those articles where I get some pushback from. But honestly, I don’t really care. This is an opinion piece. If you don’t like my opinion, then don’t read it.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with this specific topic, I’ll explain, briefly and include a video explanation (from a great Conservative YouTuber)
Overview: Over 4,000 “asylum seekers” from Honduras are traveling through Mexico on their way to the United States. They claim they’re fleeing poverty and violence from their country. Due to the length of the journey, the United States has had quite some time to evaluate the situation and attempt to put actions in place to prevent these illegal border crossings from happening. Security of State Mike Pompeo has been working and communicating with his counterparts in Mexico and other countries to try to intercept this caravan along the way.
Caravan definition: any large group of people, typically with vehicles or animals, traveling together in single file.
President Trump has made it very clear that these individuals are NOT welcome in our country. If you cross our border illegally; “we don’t want them”.
Hard to believe that with thousands of people from South of the Border, walking unimpeded toward our country in the form of large Caravans, that the Democrats won’t approve legislation that will allow laws for the protection of our country. Great Midterm issue for Republicans!
Republicans must make the horrendous, weak and outdated immigration laws, and the Border, a part of the Midterms!
I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..
In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..
The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!
And I completely agree. As I’ve stated many times before, these people who cross our borders illegally do not care about our laws. Why would we want them here? If you break our laws you’re a criminal and we do not want you here. Not to mention the fact that there is thousands and thousands of immigrants trying to come here the right way and legally. What type of message does that send to them? How is that fair? The left say they care about immigrants. But what about those people who are being cut in line? They aren’t as important? Some of them are truly seeking asylum.
Many of these people are far from asylum seekers. Many of them are just looking for a job in our booming economy. Those individuals won’t even be contributing back to our economy as they’ll be sending that money back to their country.
Mexican authorities at the Guatemala border were well prepared to stop the caravan. However, they underestimated just how lawless these “migrants” are. The authorities had extra officers and guard rails in place to prevent them from getting through. But that didn’t stop the criminals. They literally slammed through the fences and railings almost running the officers down in the process. The officers released peppers spray and other combat tactical gear. But they only got some of them detained. Many, are still on their way here, to our country.
These migrants threaten our way of life, our sovereignty, they break our laws and don’t respect us. THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED IN!
Reports are coming in that the migrants are politicizing the caravan. Meaning, their putting the woman and children in the very front and some are even pregnant. They think this will play at our heartstrings and we’ll fold, letting them in and allowing them to stay forever. But all I see when I look at those pictures of kids is “those poor children”, “what kind of parents would take their child(s) on a very long and extremely dangerous journey for anything let alone breaking the law with them.
One woman on the caravan even told a reporter that “Trump has to take us”. No, ma’am, we do not have to take you. You’re entering illegally, therefore we don’t want you.

Some say; “we’ll just let them stay here until they get cleared for citizenship”. There’s a number of problems with that. First of which, is that our detention centers are already overpopulated as it is. Secondly, if we allow them to stay before citizenship that burden of cost is on us the taxpayers. How is that fair at all? I understand we all are humans and we all have to help out, and honestly I don’t mind that — to an extent. But what I do mind is paying for people who came into my country ILLEGALLY. They don’t respect me, I don’t respect you.
Since our centers are packed and have no additional vacancies, what normally happens is the alien is given a piece of paper with a court date on it, and they are asked to please be in court at that time. Many, never show up. They’re here, why would they care about showing up when they broke the laws to come here in the first place?
I hope the President holds his tone on this whole caravan situation. If those people do show up on our border, I hope they’re turned away. If the woman or children are sick, treat them, then release them back over to ICE authorities to be escorted out of the United States. We don’t know who any of these people are. I can guarantee you there is dangerous criminals – including coyotes, drug cartel members or even murderers – in that pack. It’s the perfect Trojan horse for violent criminals to come in undetected.
The Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales reported that their officials apprehended 100 ISIS terror cells in their country last week. ISIS fighters could very well be in this group of people in the caravan. How would we know? President Trump said this morning he will deploy the military before he lets them in our country. Thank God for the President’s strong action to secure our sovereignty and keep us safe.
