By now we have all heard about the migrant caravan traveling from Central America, through Mexico, with the intention of reaching the United States, and entering illegally.
President Trump has come forward to make it very clear to Central America and Mexico that this is a serious matter, and the caravan must be turned around… or else.
Now, we have learned more about what’s been taking place on the caravan of migrants.
The caravan of migrants heading to the U.S.-Mexico border has grown to more than 7,500 people, according to a Monday report by CNN.
Caravan organizer Dennis Omar Contreras told CNN the group is set to leave Mexico’s southernmost city of Tapachula on its way north.
The caravan, which started in Honduras early last week, has created a political firestorm as President Trump threatens to cut aid from the countries where the migrants are coming from, as well as those countries that did not stop it.
It’s ridiculous the way the liberal media is pretending that all of the migrants traveling with the caravan group are simply looking for refuge and legal asylum. The truth of the matter is that we don’t know who these people are, and they must be properly vetted before being allowed to enter the United States. We have to keep OUR citizens safe before all else.
Now, we have found out that Honduran protesters who support the migrant caravan painted a swastika on an American flag, then proceeded to burn the flag. These are not the kind of people we want in our country. The media keeps telling us this is not an army, not an invading force, yet some of the most vocal people marching are behaving just as if they were.
Breitbart News reports that the Associated Press posted a photo which shows Honduran protesters burning an American flag that they had painted a swastika on. The protesters were in support of the migrant caravan that has been making its’ way to the United States from Central America.
The Associated Press Image description reads, “Two people burn a United States flag during a protest in favor of the caravan of migrants that is currently stuck on the Guatemala-Mexico border, in front of the American embassy, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Friday, Oct. 19, 2018.”
On the weekend, President Trump took to Twitter to announce a National Emergency. He wrote, “Sadly, it looks like Mexico’s Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States. Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in. I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergency. Must change laws!”
He tweeted just twelve minutes later, “Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws! Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally.”
In a third tweet, the President wrote, “Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them.”
It’s time for the migrant caravan to turn around and head back to Central America. Unless these people are willing to go through proper protocol to enter the country legally, we cannot have them here.
