The crisis on the southern border is reaching a critical mass.
There are thousands of illegal migrants caravanning across Mexico, ready to cross the border into the U.S.
And border patrol just revealed a new force that will try to stop them.
The Border Crisis Expands With The Caravan
There is a massive caravan of illegal migrants on their way to the U.S. border.
It may be the biggest threat to the U.S. border in history.
That’s why President Trump is sending thousands of U.S. troops to help defend it.
Defense Secretary James Mattis already has them on the move.
But it may not simply be U.S. troops helping in that effort.
A new force could be on their way to help, whether they are welcomed or not.
A New Force Arrives To Help Stop The Caravan
Militia groups regularly patrol the U.S. border.
They seek out illegal immigrants, and in most cases contact border patrol to report them.
Because they show up heavily armed, many see them as a danger.
But the reality is that the border is a dangerous place.
There are massive amounts of drug cartel activity on the border.
And you can be sure that the cartels are armed and ready to fight anybody who tries to stop them.
So the militia shows up prepared to defend themselves if need be.
And border patrol is claiming that militia groups will likely be on the border when the caravan arrives.
They will likely try to work alongside U.S. troops and border patrol.
But if not, they will simply be another set of eyes on the border.
Border patrol’s message went out to landowners on the border.
Those landowners are being informed so they know to keep a look out for them and anybody else who may enter on their property.
The other group border patrol made them aware of is the media.
They are likely to be on the border to cover the caravan as it arrives.
Trump Is Stopping The Caravan
The reality is that things could get ugly on the border in the coming weeks.
As the caravan arrives they will likely try to cross into the U.S.
And President Trump has made it clear they will not be allowing them to enter.
So U.S. troops and border patrol have the job of keeping them out.
That will likely result in mass arrest or even force if the caravan gets violent.
Because as it stands, there is little keeping them from crossing the border.
Trump is trying to build a wall on the border, but until then, there isn’t much there.
Fencing on the border isn’t going to stop a caravan of thousands of people.
And much of the border doesn’t even have fencing at all.
A wall would fix the problem.
Do you think we need to build a wall on the border?
