Left’s manufactured crisis timed to coincide with midterm elections using a strategy intended to overwhelm immigration authorities
With its obvious liberal bias running at full tilt, Politico accuses President Trump of “whipping up a frenzy” on the issue of the caravan numbering an estimated seven thousand invading our country. The author terms them “migrants,” as though they are swallows leaving Goya, Argentina, making their annual 6,000 mile migration to California’s San Juan Capistrano Mission. Unlike the small birds, these Central American “migrants” don’t leave. The swallows don’t expect handouts of taxpayer money, living subsidies, numerous benefits including health care and education for their children.
Those illegally crossing the border into the United States include waves from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. All are well coached in the necessary jargon of showing “credible fear” of persecution in their home country as they seek “asylum.” They know that bringing children along — their own, or “borrowed” ones, serves as insurance. Many of the children are abused by those purporting to be their relatives.
Another “caravan” is currently making its way through Mexico en route to the U.S.
The average length of schooling in Honduras is 6.2 years, though on average it takes 9 years to complete what amounts to a sixth grade education.
The literacy rate of Guatemalans over the age of 15 is just 75% — apart from Haiti, this is the lowest literacy rate in the Western Hemisphere. Only 35% of Guatemalan teenagers attend middle school.
In El Salvador, only 33% of children up to age 14 attend school. Six percent of Salvadoran children never attend any school.
These “migrants” are so grateful at the prospect of entering the United States of America, they proudly wave flags of the nations they are leaving and burn the American flag, for good measure. Their invasion is encouraged by a group known as Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders. According to its website, “border walls are imposed by greed.”
The murderous MS-13 gang, now spreading terror throughout the U.S., originated 3 decades ago on the streets of in Los Angeles, comprised of young illegals from El Salvador.
The United States has a hospitable legal system for immigration. We also have a right to determine who will enter our country.
President Trump has stated the caravan will not be allowed into the U.S., and vowed to send troops to assist in securing the border. He tweeted the U.S. will “begin cutting off or substantially reducing” foreign aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. He is also considering executive actions to prevent the caravan from illegally breaching our nation’s sovereign border.
