The caravan of migrants made up of residents of several different nations is slowly creeping up on the U.S. border.

Their aim?

To make entry into the U.S. and use our infrastructure the same way hundreds of thousands of illegals do every single year.
This caravan is quite public and there’s no hiding them as their numbers range from 5,000 – 7,000 people.

More so, the countries they have to move through to get here, are well aware of their intentions.

Which is Why President Trump said he will either reduce or totally cut off aid to these countries as a way to deal with this caravan.

Part of the reason Trump is concerned is he believes this troupe of migrants has “unknown Middle Easterners” in the group. And if they gain access to the country, he fears they might actually do something that ends up harming the nation.

Trump took to Twitter on Monday to firmly denounce the migrants and any who would support them, claiming their unrestricted assault on our border would constitute a national emergency.

In his tweets he said:

“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 wrote in one tweet.

In another he wrote:

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

While Trump may have blustered about shutting down aid to the countries, even if he does try and do just that, it won’t happen for sometime.

For one, congress isn’t in session until after the midterm elections.

And another reason is it may not be practical, or even legal.

As some experts have asserted, the governments of these counties can’t restrict people from leaving their counties.

Regarding the possible Middle Easterners in the group, that came from a guest appeared on “Fox & Friends”  and suggested ISIS fighters could take advantage of the large groups size to infiltrate the country.

Trump has for days characterized the caravan as a horde of criminals in cahoots with the Democrats while providing no evidence for his claims.

“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! Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally,” Trump tweeted Monday.

The caravan of thousands crossed into Mexico over the weekend, continuing their journey toward the U.S. border in search of asylum.

The group swelled to close to 5,000, The Associated Press reported, after an initial group of 2,000 crossed the Guatemala-Mexico border rather than waiting for asylum processing there.

The president has pointed to the caravan to stoke fear of an influx of undocumented immigrants and to blame Democrats for failing to pass stronger immigration laws, despite Republicans controlling both chambers of Congress.

Trump last week warned that he may take military action to stop immigrants from crossing the southern border if Mexico does not take action to stop the “onslaught.”

A series of bipartisan immigration bills failed to garner enough votes in the Senate earlier this year, including one bill backed by the White House.
