As the members of the caravan from Central America arrived in Tijuana, Mexican residents did not exactly receive them happily.
The caravan in Tijuana includes Hondurans, Guatemalans, Nicaraguans and Salvadorans. It is made up of gangs, unskilled rejects, and transgender men and women. In other words, the low end of society. Why would we want Central America’s worst in our country?
As tensions mount at the border, President Trump is not taking the invasion lightly, and is expected to close down the border entry points entirely. According to international law, asylum seekers should be accepted in the first country they arrive into, which, in this case, is Mexico. Whether they have a claim on entry to America, or not, President Trump’s plan is to have the asylum seekers wait for the news about where they can go while in Mexico.

Do our Congress critters have the intestinal fortitude and the spine to get the wall funding in place before the Democrats take control in January?
