Illegal Alien Caravan Inching Closer to US Border

A caravan of thousands of illegal aliens is headed for the U.S. border, and their numbers are growing by the day.

Reports say they caravan of migrants crossing Mexico is already over 7,000 individuals.

U.S. security experts are concerned that there could be terrorists or contagious diseases being transmitted in the caravan.

From the AP:

The caravan’s numbers have continued to grow as they walk and hitch rides through hot and humid weather, and the United Nations estimated that it currently comprises some 7,200 people, “many of whom intend to continue the march north.”

The same could well happen this time around as some turn back, splinter off on their own or decide to take their chances on asylum in Mexico — as 1,128 have done so far, according to the country’s Interior Department.

While such caravans have occurred semi-regularly over the years, this one has become a particularly hot topic ahead of the Nov. 6 midterm elections in the U.S., and an immigrant rights activist traveling with the group accused Trump of using it to stir up his Republican base.

Some have questioned the timing so close to the vote and whether some political force was behind it, though by all appearances it began as a group of about 160 who decided to band together in Honduras for protection and snowballed as they moved north.

President Donald J. Trump is having none of it.

Earlier in the day Trump renewed threats against Central American governments and blasted Democrats via Twitter for what he called “pathetic” immigration laws.

In another tweet, he blamed Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador for not stopping people from leaving their countries. “We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them,” he wrote.

  1. Over 7K people? This is an invasion force! Article IV; Section 4 of the Constitution requires the United States to protect the States against invasion. And we have yet to hear of any democrat politician or Hollywood celebrity step forward to sponsor any of these people or offer to take any of them into their home until they can get established. How may people could Maxine Watters, Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, Robert De Niro, or Jane Fonda house in one of their mansions? Actually they have walls and guards to keep people out.
