The founder of Legal Immigrants for America (LIFA), Amapola Hansberger, appeared on Fox News this past Monday. During her time on the air, she told Brian Kilmeade that the migrant caravan coming to the United States from Central America is an “act of war.”
Conservative Tribune reports that Hansberger, a legal immigrant who came to the United States from Nicaragua, explained that she did everything the legal process to enter the country entails. She filled out forms, underwent a vetting process, and then waited on the embassy to accept the application.
She said on the air, “The caravan is an invasion and an act of war which is defined as an active aggression by a country against another which constitutes an immediate threat to peace, and I must add, a immediate threat to national security.”
She continued, “The are a threat to our national security because today it’s not only countries that go to war. It is groups such as ISIS, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Taliban — and they have declared war openly against the United States, so with the open borders policies we have had, how many of them are in America now?”
“And at what point are we going to (say) the organizers are committing an act of war?” she questioned Kilmeade. “Is it at 40,000, when they bring in 40,000 strangers?”
Hansberger feels that both the Nicaraguans and Hondurans are “enticed by people that fund their caravan with money. They are instructed what to say, what to do.”
“They are also brainwashed to believing that they belong to the United States of America and they have rights to come in and ask for benefits,” she continued.
The comments from Hansberger came one day after President Trump sent out a tweet saying that migrants coming to the southern border of the country would be sent away if they did not apply for asylum in Mexico first. He wrote, “Full efforts are being made to stop the onslaught of illegal aliens from crossing our Souther(n) Border. People have to apply for asylum in Mexico first, and if they fail to do that, the U.S. will turn them away. The courts are asking the U.S. to do things that are not doable!”

Conservative Tribune writes:
Maybe the liberals who have been so squishy in sympathy for illegal immigrants would be enlightened by someone who actually made it through the process they have already deemed unfair and impossible to navigate.
It can be done and those that do it really appreciate what this country has to offer, apparently so much so at least one has founded an organization that “gives a voice to all Americans, including both native-born citizens and legal immigrants, who want to save the United States of America before it becomes a borderless, lawless, toothless remnant of the great nation that it once was.”
