Earlier this week, reports indicted that a caravan of about 1,000 people left Honduras, heading north to the United States.
Within days, the caravan grew to 1,500 and then to 3,000.
Today, it’s reported that the caravan has grown to at least 4,000 people, all seeking entrance into the United States.
President Trump warned the president of Honduras to stop the caravan or risk losing US aid and funding, but the caravan continues north.
Trump is determined to stop the caravan from entering the United States and is threatening to send US military troops to the border to stop the caravan.
Fox News – The U.S. military will “CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER” with Mexico if officials there don’t soon stop the northward push of a massive migrant caravan, President Trump warned Thursday, amid reports the procession had swelled in size to about 4,000 people.
Trump’s latest threat against the caravan — which originated in Honduras and is bound for the U.S. in a bid to escape pervasive poverty and violence – comes as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo heads to Central America to discuss the issue.
“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S.,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.
He added: “In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!” …
Democrats want to open the border and take in every refugee and migrant from anywhere in the world without any questions or vetting.
If that happened, in just a few years, the United States would be overrun with refugees, migrants, gang members, criminals and terrorists.
The population would swell to the point that American citizens would be a minority in their own country and the government would be bankrupt.
This is why it is so important for the United States to close the border and carefully regulate who is allowed to enter.
