Trump Doubles Down on Migrant Caravan Military Threat

Americans are growing nervous about just what this clash at the border could look like.

Published

on

In the middle of Mexico, thousands upon thousands of Central Americans are headed this way.

Many come from Honduras, and were seen crashing the gates of the Mexican border when they arrived.  Now strolling through our southerly neighbor’s land, the crowd is swelling with locals eager to take advantage of the spectacle in order to enter the United States.

President Trump, who has long been keen to secure our borders, seems to be targeted in particular by the herd of migrants, with their actions coming at such a time as to become a massive conversational piece during the 2018 midterm elections.

Given that the President has yet to be able to fund his “big, beautiful” wall on the border, his only option for stopping the 7,000-plus immigrants from running roughshod over our agents when they reach US soil is to send in the military – a threat that he made late last week.

Now, the President is doubling down.

President Trump vows to send as many troops “as necessary” to the U.S.-Mexican border to keep out thousands of migrants marching to America, calling their attempt to illegally cross the border “an assault on our country.”

“In that caravan you have some very bad people and we can’t let that happen to our country,” including “people from the Middle East,” said Trump to USA Today.

Addressing the media outside the White House on Monday, Trump warned Central American countries, saying they are currently “doing nothing” about the caravan.

Trump continued:

“It’s a lot bigger than 5,000 people,” Trump said, “and we’ve got to stop them at the border.”

“And unfortunately, when you look at the countries, they have not done their job,” Trump said. “Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador — they’re paid a lot of money every year, we give them foreign aid — they did nothing for us. Nothing. So we give them tremendous amounts of money — hundreds of millions of dollars. They, like a lot of others, do nothing for our country.”

“What happened on the border is caused by the Democrats. Because they won’t let anyone change immigration laws that are horrible.”

Unsure of what this confrontation will ultimately look like, Americans are perhaps rightfully nervous about the coming weeks.
