Armed Migrants In Caravan Open Fire At Police Officers, Trump Makes Them Regret It

President Donald Trump was right. There are violent young men, who are not only armed with weapons but are also making Molotov cocktails, in the caravan of migrants getting ready to storm our Southern border, according to Mexican authorities. Two migrants allegedly opened fire at police officers today. Well, thanks to President Trump, the migrants are now regretting ever joining the caravan or opening fire. Don’t miss this.

The violent incident took place in Ignacio Zaragoza, Chiapas, Mexico, which is approximately a 30-40 hour drive to our Southern border. According to Mexico’s Interior Secretariat, two Honduran men opened fire at police officers who were escorting the migrant caravan across the southern state of Chiapas.

President Trump made it crystal clear that the caravan would be met by the US military. This seemed to upset many of the rogue young men inside the caravan, who are armed and now attacking law enforcement. They are even making Molotov cocktails.

Breitbart reports, “Mexican authorities arrested two Hondurans who allegedly shot at federal police officers escorting the migrant caravan across the southern state of Chiapas. The attack follows shortly after government warnings about Molotov cocktail attacks around a second caravan near the border with Guatemala.”

They add, “The attack took place near Ignacio Zaragoza, Chiapas, when members of Mexico’s Federal Police were escorting the migrant caravan as part of ‘Operativo Caminante’ or ‘Operation Walker’ across the southern border state. According to Mexico’s Interior Secretariat, two men identified only as 22-year-old ‘Jerson’ and 17-year-old ‘Carlos’ spotted the group of police officers guarding the caravan and began firing at them.”

As the attackers’ pistol jammed, police officers were able to arrest them without any injuries. Federal authorities then seized a .380 caliber Glock with nine rounds still in the magazine. Thanks to President Trump, who has seemingly been the lone voice bringing attention to the violent nature of some in the caravan, police officers were on hand in Mexico to handle this. But, there’s more.

These violent migrants are part of the second caravan en route to the San Diego border. Hearing President Trump was absolutely denying them entry, it seems Guatemala migrants started to weaponize themselves. “Mexico’s immigration authorities issued a warning about individuals in Guatemala who are building Molotov cocktails and other makeshift incendiary devices to be used against federal police officers guarding their southern border,” Breitbart reports.

“The alert follows an incident where a group of migrants in what’s being dubbed the second caravan threw rocks at officials at the Guatemala-Mexico Border and tried to break through international barriers. Mexican law enforcement confirmed that some of the protesters in the clash carried firearms,” added Breitbart.

President Trump told Fox News on Monday evening that Central American migrants who are approaching the U.S.-Mexico border in caravans are “wasting their time” and vowed, “they are not coming in.”

Fox News reports, “Trump spoke to ‘The Ingraham Angle’ hours after the Pentagon announced it would deploy some 5,200 troops to the southern border in what the commander of U.S. Northern Command described as an effort to ‘harden the southern border’ by stiffening defenses at and near legal entry points.”

“When they are captured, we don’t let them out,” Trump told host Laura Ingraham. “We’re not letting them out … We’re not catching, we’re not releasing … We’re not letting them into this country,” the president added.

“Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border,” Trump tweeted Monday morning. “Please go back, you will not be admitted into the United States unless you go through the legal process. This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!

Trump also said the administration would build “tent cities” to house any asylum-seekers who have joined the caravan. “We’re going to put tents up all over the place,” the president said. “We’re not going to build structures and spend … hundreds of millions of dollars. We’re going to have tents. They’re going to be very nice, and they’re going to wait, and if they don’t get asylum, they get out.”

Trump is doing everything possible to warn Americans that the caravan is not full of little kids and women, who are fleeing for political asylum. This is now an armed invasion heading to our Southern border. Spread this information far and wide since so many on the left are refusing to deal in reality.
