Guatemala let them through.
Mexico let them through.
Will the United States let them through?
That’s the question President Trump must answer about the “migrant caravan” surging through Mexico toward a rendezvous with the U.S. Border Patrol and National Guard.
The Trump administration is wringing its hands, flummoxed at the prospect of dealing with an invasion that, if successful, could mean the beginning of the end of national sovereignty and set a precedent that could lead to the destruction of the United States as we know it.
Debate Within
The Trump administration, the Associated Press reported today, “has not settled on a plan for what to do if a migrant caravan arrives at the southern border, despite threats by President Donald Trump to declare a national emergency or rescind aid from the countries whose people are journeying north.”
Apparently, no one knows what to do, although Trump has, as The New American reported, sent 2,100 National Guardsmen from four states to the border, 1000 of whom are unarmed.
Reported AP:
Top immigration officials and close Trump advisers are still evaluating the options in closed-door meetings that have gotten increasingly heated in the past week, including one that turned into a shouting match as the caravan of about 7,000 people pushes north, according to administration officials and others with knowledge of the issue. They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly on the topic....
But the president's inner circle on immigration is grappling with the same problems that have plagued them for months, absent any law change by Congress.
The debate within the administration is between those, such as Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who want a diplomatic solution, and hardliners who want to declare a state of emergency, as Trump did on Sunday, albeit unofficially in a tweet.
That “would give the administration broader authority over how to manage people at the border; rescinding aid; or giving parents who arrive to the U.S. a choice between being detained months or years with their children while pursuing asylum, or releasing their children to a government shelter while a relative or guardian seeks custody.”
Apparently, AP reported, the debate has been heated:
Tensions boiled over last week, when Nielsen suggested going to the United Nations Committee on Human Rights in a meeting with White House chief of staff John Kelly. National security adviser John Bolton, a longtime critic of the U.N., exploded over the idea, the officials and people said. Nielsen responded that Bolton, not a frequent attendant of the immigration meetings, was no expert on the topic, they said.
Border Apprehensions
However hot tempers were at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, things will get a lot hotter at the border when 14,000 + people arrive, pushing against a much smaller force protecting America’s frontier.
The caravan rolled into Guatemala without a problem, and as TNA reported today, Mexican cops are escorting the relentless Camp-of-the-Saints horde through the country.
How hard are things at the border now, though?
Border Patrol data paint the picture of a border under siege, and that’s not including the “caravan” moving north now. The agency collared 521,090 individuals on the Southwest border in fiscal 2018. Of those, 107,212 were family units, and 50,036 were unaccompanied minors.
The patrol also collared 124,511 who were “inadmissible.” That figure included 53,901 family units and 8,624 unaccompanied minors.
And some of them, of course, will be criminals, Breitbart reported yesterday.
“Border Patrol agents assigned to the Rio Grande Valley Sector arrested a Salvadoran migrant who illegally crossed the border with his minor son and a large group of families. Court records indicate the man is wanted for murder in South Carolina.”
And “later that day, agents assigned to the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint in Brooks County, Texas, disrupted an attempt to smuggle an illegal immigrant through the checkpoint.”
So what’s Trump going to do about it, having unofficially declared it, again, a “national emergency” in a tweet on Sunday? Mexican authorities surrendered their border, he wrote.
The last caravan deposited 300 illegal aliens at the border. Authorities released them into the country.
The border-busting, human battering ram that began on October 12 is 14,000 strong, the latest reports estimate, and now another has begun in El Salvador, the nation that gave the United States the murderous MS-13 gang.

Migrant Invasion Force Doubles and Another 

From El Salvador Starts

The “caravan” of Central Americans snaking toward the U.S. border through Mexico is almost 10 times the size of the group that started marching from Honduras on October 12, news reports say.
It shows no signs of stopping, Mexican authorities are pushing it north, and it’s now unclear whether even President Trump has the courage to stop the army of jobless illegal aliens when they storm the border.
This “migrant crisis” is, as Trump says, a national emergency, and even worse, another caravan has begun in El Salvador.
The Latest
Media reports had put the number of migrants in the metastasizing human tsunami at anywhere from 6,500 to 7,500. As well, the U.S., Mexico, and United Nations had come up with a plan to deal with the problem.
But yesterday, news reports put the number at 14,000, nearly 10 times the 1,600 who left Honduras on what used to be Columbus Day.
According to Breitbart, “the Mexican El Universal news outlet is reporting that more than 14,000 Hondurans — not counting people from other countries who are marching toward the United States — are leaving that Central American nation to seek asylum here.” The figure came from “‘municipal authorities,’ the Catholic Diocese in the Mexican city of Tapachula, and the Mexican National Migration Institute (INM).”
And the marching horde, which carries the Honduran flag and paints Old Glory with swastikas only to burn it, has official help, the Washington Times reported. Mexican cops “who failed to stop them at that country’s border with Guatemala now serve as escorts for the caravan as it barrels north, its members clear that they have no intention of staying in Mexico, and have eyes only for the U.S.”
Troops on the Border
Trump has said he will declare a national emergency and has sent 2,100 National Guardsmen from Texas, California, New Mexico, and Arizona to the border, 1,000 of whom are unarmed.
The question is, what will they do when the caravan arrives and begins pushing across? Will the troops fight back, or as authorities in Guatemala and Mexico have done, will they surrender the border and let the migrants enter?
Whatever the answer, one thing is clear, as The New American reported yesterday: The caravan is an organized invasion of the United States. The media frequently quote its “leaders,” who are affiliated with Pueblo Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders), a group of leftist, anti-American subversives operating behind the facade of concern for pool illegal aliens who have nowhere to go.
News stories have repeatedly demonstrated that the caravan is a march for jobs in the United States, its members having joined after receiving alerts through Facebook, WhatsApp, and other social media. The Washington Post, for instance, recently opened another of its typical tales of woe with a woman who needed a job, and saw that a caravan was headed North. Where did she get the news? On Facebook:
Edith Cruz was sitting at home in central Honduras, scanning Facebook on her phone, when she saw the post about the caravan on a community news page.
It was Oct. 12. She and her cousin had just opened a small business selling tortillas when they were confronted by a gang, threatened with death if they didn’t hand over half of their profits. She looked at the Facebook post: “An avalanche of Hondurans is preparing to leave in a caravan to the United States. Share this!” Within three hours, her bags were packed.
Whether and how the Post verified this tale we are not given to know. But the Post repeated the point:
By mid-October, the explosion of media coverage and viral social media posts across Central America prompted an explosion in the number of migrants. Within days of the caravan’s departure from San Pedro Sula on Oct. 13, almost no one could pin down the group’s official origin story. They could cite only the Facebook post or television program that led to their own decision to migrate.
Another Break-the-Border Train Starts
Frighteningly, another caravan has begun.
“The Department of Homeland Security is also tracking a new caravan taking shape — this time from El Salvador, according to two U.S. officials, a local source on the ground in Central America and an internal U.S. government report obtained by NBC News.”
The next Break the Border Train leaves next week, the network reported. DHS is tracing the messages of its members, “including a 230-member WhatsApp group that intends to leave on Oct. 31.”

The Caravan Attack on America ~ VIDEO

SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:

USA – -( The caravan from Central America that has grown from 3,000 to 4,000 people in the last few days is an attempted invasion and an attack on the United States. [and has now entered Mexico]
This assertion will almost certainly be denounced by the usual sources as being hateful or offensive, but it is long past time we stop letting the Left prevent us from using words which clearly communicate reality.
The fact is: Thousands of people have openly stated their intention to break American law and invade our country. Other people, some of them Americans, are funding this deliberate effort to invade America.
If you think “invade” is too strong a word, watch this video [above] of the caravan tearing down fences separating Guatemala and Mexico while waving the Honduran flag (the country these people no doubt plan to claim asylum from). How is this not an invasion?

Newt Live: The Caravan Attack on America

We cannot allow ourselves to be intimidated by the heart-wrenching pictures and misleading words the left-wing media will doubtlessly manufacture if this caravan arrives at our border.
We also must reclaim our narrative from the Left. We cannot allow them to demonize us and distort what we stand for and what we are trying to do.
Let me be clear about where I stand.
I strongly favor legal immigration. I am happy that America remains the most welcoming country in the world for legal immigrants. According to Pew Research, in 2015 there were a little more than 30 million legal immigrants in the country. This is higher than the population of Texas – our second most populous state. I think this is a great thing that makes America stronger. It is simply a lie to say I oppose immigration.
Furthermore, I have worked very hard to get sound, responsible immigration reform for decades.
In October 1986, I voted for the Simpson-Mazzoli Immigration Reform Act, which granted amnesty to about 3 million people (originally estimated to be 300,000). I voted for the bill in return for two commitments: to control the border and to establish a guest worker program. Similarly, President Reagan wrote in his diary that he would reluctantly sign the bill, because as he wrote: “It’s high time we regained control of our borders and [Simpson’s] bill will do this.”
The harsh lesson of 1986 was that liberals took the amnesty for 3 million illegal immigrants and then broke their word on controlling the border and creating an effective guest worker program.
Finally, on a personal level, I spent much of my childhood living in foreign countries (my dad spent 27 years in the infantry, and I now live part-time in Rome, Italy).
I outline my record to make clear that I don’t fit any of the nasty stereotypes with which the Left smears those who threaten them (see “the Kavanaugh effect”). And neither do the vast majority of Americans who want a functional immigration system that reflects American values.
The very idea that thousands of people believe (or are being told) they have a right to invade America and demand that we take care of them tells you how sick the system has become.
The time to draw the line and fight for an honest immigration and border control policy is now.
The caravan is the perfect symbol of the arrogance – the organized effort to destroy the rule of law – and the contempt for the American system which the Left exhibits every day.
We have been so conditioned by a half-century of political correctness doctrine (developed and sustained by the liberal news media, college professors, and left-wing politicians) that we have forgotten how to tell the truth about illegal immigration.
The truth is: It has substantially increased the risk for Americans.
Caravan From Central America
Caravan From Central America
MS-13, the vicious El Salvadoran gang, killed 17 people on Long Island in a 17-month period in 2016. The gang has an estimated 8,000 to 10,000 members in the United States. Fentanyl and opioids also come across the uncontrolled southern border. Last year, more than 72,000 Americans died from drug overdoses – more than the number killed during the eight years of the Vietnam War. There is a substantial safety impact of uncontrolled borders and the routine breaking of the law by illegal immigrants.
If America is to survive, we must win some key arguments about facts and prove that much of what left-wing politicians say – and what the liberal news media reports – is simply wrong.
If America is to survive, we must heed George Orwell’s warning in his great essay Politics and the English Language – that “political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible.” Nothing could more accurately characterize the Left’s speech about political correctness and their unending effort to shut down language that exposes the hypocrisy and falsehood of their members’ positions – especially when it comes to their animus toward American sovereignty and defending the border.
As I wrote in my New York Times bestseller Trump’s America: The Truth About Our Nation’s Great Comeback, the liberal media has actively participated in creating propaganda designed to manufacture sympathy for the lawbreakers and delegitimize those who would defend American sovereignty and the rule of law.
When House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says to Harvard Kennedy School students that Democrats are for controlling our borders, she is simply lying. When she goes on to say, “we do need to guard our borders, and we do need to have immigration reform,” you have to wonder how stupid she thinks we are.
There is no evidence of any Democrat-backed program that would be effective in controlling illegal immigration. They oppose the wall in any form. They would hobble or abolish ICE. They favor so-called sanctuary cities and states in order to shield illegal immigrants from the legal immigration process. Senator Dianne Feinstein has introduced an open borders bill, which every Democratic Senate incumbent has cosponsored. The national vice chair of the Democratic Party campaigns in a t-shirt which says in Spanish “I don’t believe in borders.” Democrats only ever favor complicated, impossible-to-implement legal systems, which create opportunities for people to enter and stay in America illegally.
Not only do Democrats oppose controlling the border and stopping illegal immigration, they welcome illegal immigrants as an offset to legal American voters.
Consider what Pelosi said in El Paso to immigration rights activists: “We believe that we will have leverage when we win in November. And why is that important? Because it gives leverage to every family” who came to America illegally.
Stacey Abrams, a Democratic candidate for governor in Georgia, is even clearer in her commitment to illegal immigrants. In a recent speech, she said the blue wave is comprised of “those who are documented and undocumented.” There could not be a clearer indication of the Democrats’ belief that illegal immigrants are an integral part of their coalition.
The San Francisco Democrats have even adopted a new regulation to allow illegal immigrants to vote in city elections.
The caravan invasion is a useful starting point to insist on an honest debate about our future as a country.
Every Democrat should be forced to answer these six questions before the election:
  • 1. Do you think 4,000 or more people should be allowed to invade the United States whenever they want to, and, if so, how big and how frequent do you think the next caravans will be?
  • 2. Who do you think is paying for these efforts to undermine American sovereignty, break American laws, and impose foreign will on the United States?
  • 3. When you are told it is only a small number of people in this first caravan, how do you respond to the fact that we already have an estimated illegal population of 1.8 million Central Americans, 650,000 South Americans, and 425,000 immigrants from the Caribbean? Does that change the scale of the problem? If caravans are accepted the numbers will grow dramatically in a very short period.
  • 4. When you learn that the Gallup World Poll estimates that 29 percent of people in Latin America and the Caribbean (that would be about 197 million people) want to migrate – and 29 percent of those people (about 57 million) want to come to the United States, does this change your concern about controlling the border?
  • 5. When you learn that beyond our hemisphere, the Gallup World Poll estimates that millions more would come to the United States if they could, does that increase your interest in controlling the border?
  • 6. If you do not think this caravan should be allowed to illegally enter the United States as an invasion of our sovereign border, what would you do to stop them?
If Democrats really wanted to control the border, how do we have an estimated 11 million-plus illegal immigrants currently in the United States – and a system that can be gamed so easily that people have continued to brazenly and openly break the law?
This caravan attack is the right place to draw the line and say, “no more.”
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy is right. Congress should come back and pass the laws that would enable Americans to re-establish the rule of law at the border and protect our country with dignity and authority.

President Trump is right. Stop the caravan now.

If you want to defend America, let your House member and Senators know how you feel.

“I guarantee they will all miraculously appear at our border right at midterm election week”

SEE: below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Actor James Woods is questioning how the migrant caravan has been able to travel so quickly through Central America without massive aid from authorities and other shadowy groups.
“So consider this: it is over 2,000 miles from Tegucigalpa, Honduras to Phoenix, Arizona,” tweeted the conservative actor. “Hard to believe a bunch of people just randomly decided to pack a lunch and walk TWO THOUSAND MILES to anywhere. Where is this mob sleeping, using bathrooms, procuring food and water?”
“Oh, and the “spontaneous” mob would have to walk 20 miles a day for a hundred consecutive days, without rest, to get here. That’s over three months obviously, and yet I guarantee they will all miraculously appear at our border right at midterm election week,” he added.
While the migrants are undoubtedly being given aid by several different left-wing NGOs (some of which are directly funded by George Soros), reports confirm that the migrants also “received help Sunday from sympathetic Mexicans who offered food, water and clothing and that, “Hundreds of locals driving pickups, vans and cargo trucks stopped to let them clamber aboard.”
Mexican officials have also repeatedly suggested that large numbers of migrants could be used as a political weapon against the United States.
Mexico’s socialist president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador told migrants back in June that they should leave their home towns and flood into the United States.
“And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.” He went on to emphasize that was “a human right we will defend.”
Two months later, Mexican Economic Minister Ildefonso Guajardo threatened to use migrants as a leverage for trade agreements.
“If they do not treat [us] well commercially, they should not expect us to treat them well by containing the migration that comes from other regions of the world and crosses Mexico,” Guajardo said. “Or they should not expect to be treated well in collaboration with security issues in the region.”
Summing up the mood of many Mexican powerbrokers in relation to mass migration, Mexico’s former foreign minister, Jorge Castaneda, made stunning comments during a CNN appearance back in January 2017 when he told Fareed Zakaria that the Mexican government could counter Donald Trump by unleashing drug cartels upon the U.S. border.
