NATIONAL EMERGENCY: After Mexico Fails, Trump Preps Military To Take On Migrants

Mexico has been unable to stop the migrant caravan from infiltrating its southern border. Now, the only thing that stands between 7,000 undocumented immigrants and the United States is our military. President Donald Trump has declared this a national emergency and is preparing the military to take on the caravan.

Thousands of Honduran migrants are headed for the United States border. Some 1,300 people, including young children, left San Pedro Sula in northern Honduras last Saturday, in what some are calling the “March of the Migrant.” Over the weekend, that number increased to 7,000 people as the caravan swarmed over the southern Mexico border.

President Donald Trump alerted the U.S. military on Monday, as the caravan of migrants crossed into Mexico. “I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergency,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Must change laws!”

Trump has repeatedly vowed to stop the caravan from crossing into the United States by using the force of the U.S. military:

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S.” Trump tweeted.

“In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!” the president threatened.

“The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!” Trump tweeted.

Mexico responded by dispatching two Boeing 727s full of federal police officers to its southern border. However, it appears that their efforts to halt the caravan were fruitless, as the migrants headed for the U.S. border have only increased in number.

The government of Mexico dispatched two 727 Boeing planes filled with federal police officers to its southern border with Guatemala on Wednesday to intercept a caravan of Central American migrants who are trying to reach the U.S. border.

The Interior and Foreign Relations ministries said in a joint statement that any migrant in the caravan without proper immigration papers would be arrested and “returned to their country of origin.” Those with proper documents or wishing to apply for asylum would be allowed to enter Mexico.

Now that Mexico has been unable to stave off the caravan, the president is preparing the military to take on the 7,000 migrants headed for our border.

“Sadly, it looks like Mexico’s Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States,” Trump tweeted. “Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in. I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergency. Must change laws!”

“Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws!” added the president. “Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally.”

“Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them,” Trump tweeted.

Please keep the brave men and women of our military in your prayers as they prepare to take on the thousands of migrants intent on invading our country illegally. Make no mistake — this is an invasion and it must be stopped.
