The caravan is perhaps the biggest threat to the U.S. currently.
While many are trying to get away from dangerous conditions, several of the migrants are gang members and criminals.
And the first part of the caravan just arrived and revealed something crazy.
The Caravan Moves On
The caravan of illegal South American migrants is getting closer to the border every day.
It is filled with people attempting to gain asylum in the U.S.
But among them are droves of gang members and criminals.
The DHS confirms this fact.
That’s why Trump is working tirelessly to stop them in their tracks.
There’s no telling when the entire caravan will reach the border.
They are working their way across Mexico, both on foot and with the help of shuttle buses.
But one group has just arrived at our border and provided a crazy revelation.
The First Group In The Caravan Arrives
While much of the caravan is still on the move across the country, a shock has come out of nowhere.
A group of nearly 80 members of the caravan are now at the border city of Tijuana.
Speaking to border authorities, they are requesting asylum.
They claim that the reason they are alone from the rest of the caravan is because they were facing discrimination.
Those in this group say they are gay and had been facing harassment.
It is unclear if they will receive asylum.
But if President Trump’s statements are any indication, they will not.
He is adamant that the United States will not be accepting the caravan.
If they want asylum, they can gain it in Mexico.
The government is already accepting some who have split off.
But the main difference between Mexico and the U.S. is our welfare system.
If they get into the U.S., they gain access to welfare programs.
Considering how poor those in the caravan are, this is a huge incentive.
But if they all get in, that welfare will be paid for with money from U.S. taxpayers.
So not only will the caravan bring in criminals, they will live off the dime of U.S. taxpayers.
That’s why it’s important to stop them.
Trump Is Ready To Stop The Caravan
Thousands of U.S. troops are on the border ready to stop the caravan.
They are placing barbed wire and setting up perimeters.
And while these are good moves, they may not be enough.
Up against thousands of people with nothing to lose, things could end badly.
This proves just how important Trump’s main campaign promise of building a wall is.
While they may be able to push through temporary barbed wire fencing, a wall would be much more difficult.
If Democrats wouldn’t have blocked funding the wall during the first year of Trump’s presidency, this issue would be less dangerous.
Do you support building a wall on the border?
