Images of 7,000 migrants marching through Central America frightened many Americans.
They demanded Washington take action to stop what many see as an invasion.
So Donald Trump stepped up and sent out one tweet that could shut down the caravan immediately.
Americans Concerned About The Migrant Caravan
The 7,000-person migrant caravan threatening to pour over America’s border rocketed to the top of many voters concerns.
Americans are worried about the dangers posed by the caravan.
It threatens America’s sovereignty.
And they are worried about dangerous criminals using some of the migrants’ legitimate asylum claims to sneak into America.
Trump won the election on the strength of his proposed immigration crackdown.
He knows his base stands by him because of his commitment to this issue.
So he took action to stop the caravan in its tracks.
Donald Trump Responds
Trump ordered the military the border.
And Secretary of Defense James Mattis sent 5,000 troops to help stop the caravan from violating America’s borders.
But then Trump sent the caravan a final warning.
He told the people in the column to turn around and go home because the government would not allow them to enter America illegally.
MANY GANG MEMBERS AND SOME VERY BAD PEOPLE ARE MIXED INTO THE CARAVAN HEADING TO OUR SOUTHERN BORDER. PLEASE GO BACK, YOU WILL NOT BE ADMITTED INTO THE UNITED STATES UNLESS YOU GO THROUGH THE LEGAL PROCESS. THIS IS AN INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY AND OUR MILITARY IS WAITING FOR YOU!
Trump warned that this was coming.
He sent out earlier messages on social media declaring he would send the military to the border.
TO THOSE IN THE CARAVAN, TURNAROUND, WE ARE NOT LETTING PEOPLE INTO THE UNITED STATES ILLEGALLY. GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY AND IF YOU WANT, APPLY FOR CITIZENSHIP LIKE MILLIONS OF OTHERS ARE DOING!
He also 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!
The Media Tries To Downplay The Caravan
Many so-called “mainstream” media outlets want to downplay the caravan.
Reporters claim Trump is using racist dog whistles and images of foreigners to stoke racial fears before the election.
This is fake news and deserves to be called out as such.
The media has adopted a more aggressive posture to censor conservative speech.
They claim any opposition to the caravan entering America is racist.
That’s because they know Democrats support for open borders is a losing stance.
So they’ve gone nuclear with the race card to try and discredit Trump and the idea that America deserves a secure border.
But many Americans see through this farce.
That’s why Republicans are surging in key Senate races.
And Trump’s move to stop the caravan with the military could both prevent a debacle on the border and boost GOP candidates into the winner’s circle.
