Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had a short and sweet message to the 14,000 invaders in the Honduran caravan, “You’re not getting into the US.” That comment was followed by the announcements that the Defense Department is adding another 4,000 National Guard troops to the 2,100 already assigned there along with 800 active duty troops, whose job it will be to provide back up to the Border Patrol.
“The United States also has a message for those who are part of this caravan or any caravan which follows – you will not be successful at getting into the United States illegally, no matter what.”
“I repeat, the caravan will not cross our southern border illegally.”
Pompeo’s laser-focused warning came as President Trump continued to back up a more dubious claim he had made about the migrants – that some were from the Middle East.
“There could very well be,” Trump said Tuesday in the Oval Office. “I have very good information.”
Vice President Mike Pence, who was in the Oval Office with Trump for a bill signing, said it was “inconceivable that there would not be individuals from the Middle East as a part of this growing caravan.”
On a background call unveiling new southern border numbers Tuesday, a senior administration official told reporters that they would need to contact Mexican authorities for details on the “actual current construct of the caravan.”
There is a lot more riding on the caravan being stopped than just the 14,000 illegals trying to cross the border. Should they make it into the United States, there would be an endless chain of invaders trying to make it into the country.
The Democrats are sending a clear message to black and brown citizens of this country that they are less important than the illegal aliens. How racist can you get?
