The caravan is making ground fast.
They are working their way across Mexico both on foot and in shuttles.
And they just revealed the day they are arriving.
The Caravan’s Threat To America
A caravan of illegal South American migrants is heading to the U.S. border.
They claim to be seeking asylum in the U.S.
But as many point out, that isn’t the case.
Ann Coulter explosively exposed that fact to the world, saying:
“None of these are asylum cases or they’d stop in the first country they get to.”
In reality, they are coming to the U.S. for welfare benefits they wouldn’t get in Mexico.
And the ones who aren’t are coming for more nefarious reasons.
It is well known that there are criminals in the caravan, as one person in it openly admitted, saying “there are criminals everywhere.”
That’s why President Trump is doing everything possible to stop them.
Already he has had Defense Secretary James Mattis send troops to the border.
Those troops are setting up barbed wire, and making it clear they will stop the caravan.
But the biggest voice standing against the caravan is Trump himself, who has consistently made it clear they won’t get in.
The First Caravan Members Arrive
Earlier this week, a small contingent of the caravan made its way to the border.
Around 80 are in Tijuana seeking asylum in the U.S.
They are gay asylum seekers who are not welcome in the full caravan.
They claim that they were discriminated against by others in the caravan for being gay.
Because of the danger they perceived, they split apart and found transport to get them the rest of the way to the border.
Since arriving they have not yet been given any asylum.
That proves that Trump is following through on his promise to stop them.
But in reality, this is just a small test.
The caravan currently has upwards of 12,000 people.
All of them hitting the border at the same time is the real test.
According to Axios, much of the caravan will arrive by the weekend.
So that test is happening very soon.
But thankfully, troops are on the border with barbed wire barriers up.
Even Mattis himself is at the border ready to prepare his troops.
The Best Defense Against The Caravan
While the barbed wire fencing is a good step, it is far from what’s needed.
Thousands of people crossing the border can easily make their way through the temporary barrier.
But if there was a wall on the border, that would become much harder.
It is the top promise of his campaign.
And while he is following through on many of his promises, progress on the wall has been slow.
Much of that is to blame on the Democrats and weak-kneed Republicans.
And with Democrats having control of the House, building the wall just became much more difficult.
Do you think Trump will be able to build the wall?
