The migrant caravan advancing through Mexico is a serious threat to America’s security and sovereignty.
Reports have indicated the caravan has swelled to a size larger than some U.S. cities and towns.
But Donald Trump said the two words that spelled the caravan’s doom.
Donald Trump Calls In The Military
Donald Trump took the threat of the migrant column seriously.
He ordered 5,200 troops to the border.
Troops have deployed to Arizona, Texas, and California.
They will perform support tasks so Border Patrol can focus on stopping the migrant caravan from illegally entering the United States.
Trump told the caravan to “turn around.”
The Caravans are made up of some very tough fighters and people. Fought back hard and viciously against Mexico at Northern Border before breaking through. Mexican soldiers hurt, were unable, or unwilling to stop Caravan. Should stop them before they reach our Border, but won’t!
Our military is being mobilized at the Southern Border. Many more troops coming. We will NOT let these Caravans, which are also made up of some very bad thugs and gang members, into the U.S. Our Border is sacred, must come in legally. TURN AROUND!
But Trump wasn’t finished.
He told reporters he could send up to 15,000 troops to the border.
“We’ll go up to anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel on top of Border Control, ICE, and everybody else at the border,” Trump declared. “Nobody’s coming in. We’re not allowing people to come in.”
Secretary of Defense James Mattis described the mission.
“The support that we provide to the Secretary for Homeland Security is practical support based on the request from the commissioner of customs and border police, so we don’t do stunts in this department,” he explained.
The Fake News Media Howls In Outrage
Members of the fake news media whined that Trump was just carrying out an election year stunt.
‘Meet The Press’ host Chuck Todd lied to his viewers and claimed, “…there’s no evidence of any criminals in the Central American caravan, no evidence that somehow Democrats are funding the caravan.”
But Nixon Hernandez – a member of the caravan – told Fox News there were “criminals everywhere.”
“Criminals are everywhere,” Hernandez stated. “There are criminals in here, I mean it is, but it is not that many. There is good people here trying to get through Mexico and then get to the United States but that doesn’t mean everybody is a criminal.”
Journalists also demanded that Trump stop campaigning and accept responsibility for the shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.
What they really mean is Trump should stop talking about issues that hurt the Democrats and let the left win the election.
Journalists also complained that Trump sent almost as many troops to the Southern border as the U.S. deployed to Afghanistan.
But Trump campaigned on defending the United States’ borders and not those of far-away lands.
That helped him win the election.
And the fake news media is terrified it will help Republicans win again this year.
