A caravan of South American migrants is on the move.
Tens of thousands are heading towards the border.
And they are about to make their craziest move yet.
The Caravan Is On The Move
The illegal migrant caravan is ballooning in size.
Upwards of 12,000 people are in it currently.
Those in the caravan claim to be seeking asylum.
But as it is now clear, many in the caravan are criminals and gang members.
One of those people candidly admits that.
The unnamed individual made that clear, speaking through a translator.
“Criminals are everywhere,” he said.
That’s why President Trump is fighting back against the caravan.
He has border patrol on alert and has said he is going to send the military to secure the border.
Trump is also threatening to cut off aid from some South American countries.
The U.S. sends hundreds of millions of dollars to South America in foreign aid.
So the fact that those countries are doing little to stop the caravans is angering Trump.
There is still time for the president, and Mexico to stop the caravan.
But with their craziest move just around the corner that is becoming more important now than ever.
Caravan Is Right Around The Corner
According to Fox News, the caravan is within reach of the border.
The last known position is in Mexico City, but they are gaining ground faster than ever.
They are now utilizing buses, trucks, and trains to move faster than ever before.
So there’s no telling just how quickly they will arrive at the border.
But things are becoming more dangerous than ever.
While the caravan is fluctuating in size, it is only becoming more violent.
Shocking video in recent days shows the caravan throwing rocks at Mexican officials, including a helicopter flying low.
When those videos came out, Trump made it clear that U.S. officials will open fire if the same happens to them.
While that may seem like a drastic move, projectiles hurling towards U.S. authorities is a real threat.
The Department of Homeland Security has found that many in the caravan are criminals and gang members.
Some are even from the Middle East, creating concerns that terrorists may be infiltrating.
That’s why Trump is fully ready to prevent them from getting in.
U.S. Troops Preparing 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 it during the first year of Trump’s presidency, this issue would be less dangerous.
Do you support building a wall on the border?
