Trump Sending Military To Border To Stop Caravan

The military will be deployed to the U.S.-Mexico border to prevent a caravan of thousands from entering the United States, announced President Trump on Tuesday.

“We are going to be guarding our border with our military. That’s a big step,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

“We cannot have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing, and by the way never showing up for court.”

Media aggregator Matt Drudge sounded his iconic “Drudge Alarm” in reaction to Trump’s bold announcement.

The caravan is comprised mostly of Hondurans led by far-left political outreach group Pueblo sin Fronteras, or “Peoples Without Borders,” who vow “to provide shelter and safety to migrants and refugees in transit, accompany them in their journey, and together demand respect for our human rights.”

The group released a list of demands on Monday for the U.S. and Mexican governments to adhere to, which include that the U.S. “open the borders to us because we are as much citizens as the people of the countries where we are and/or travel.”

Hours before his announcement, Trump warned that Congress must act to legislate laws that strengthen the U.S. border with Mexico.

“The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our ‘Weak Laws’ Border, had better be stopped before it gets there,” he tweeted. “Cash cow NAFTA is in play, as is foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen. Congress MUST ACT NOW!”

    Focusing on these caravans will allow the drug cartels to ship their
    deadly cargos across the border in different places away from all of
    the attention. Maybe if we can stop the money criminals pay to our
    political elites and others and jail our traitors, Americans can go back
    to a livable life with morals, hopes and dreams……………..William

  2. It’s interesting that the US is experiencing a similar event to what Israel is currently going through – an attack on our border. Will these invaders be as violent? They are surely brazen in their demands to be given entrance to the US, disrespecting the sovereignty of the US. I hope the US military takes the advice of their own state dept and uses “restraint”, and respects the rights of the invaders to express their desires to invade. The lesson here is watch what you demand of others, because if you fail to put yourself in their place, a power bigger than you may bring the same scenario into your own backyard and you will be forced to choose to take your own advice or appear as a hypocrite.
