All eyes were on the Southern border this week as the infamous caravan of illegal immigrants finally reached the US.
While their numbers had dwindled from the 1,200 that started the journey to around 150, it was still a sight to behold.
The illegal immigrants, many of them men, boldly climbed atop our border fence waving the flag of Honduras, their country of origin, while brainwashed liberals cheered on the marauders.
It’s difficult to not view this as an invasion when the people demanding to enter our country are waving a flag that isn’t our own.
But the liberal media continues to turn this whole spectacle into a sob story, showcasing the women traveling with children and claiming that these illegal immigrants are just people who want to come here to work, and that they aren’t criminals.
This couldn’t be further from the truth however, and even CNN was eventually forced to admit that, indeed, these illegal immigrants are violating the law.
Two Salvadorans, six Hondurans, and three Guatemalans face charges, a federal law enforcement official told CNN.
Ten of them face a misdemeanor charge for allegedly entering the US illegally. Another individual is alleged to have entered the country after they were previously deported, and faces a felony charge.
The probable cause statement alleges many of those charged were seen in an area known as Goat Canyon, about 4 miles to the west of the San Ysidro port of entry, on the US side of the border, the official said. Others were seen on the US side of the border about 2 miles west of San Ysidro in an area known as “W-8.”
These arrests have done nothing to curb the rest of the caravan’s resolve to infiltrate our country. One of the leaders stated to the media that they wouldn’t stop until “every last one is admitted into the United States.”
This horde traveled through several countries before it reached the United States. Why didn’t they stop and seek asylum from any of the other countries they went through to get here? Perhaps because those countries are more strict than America on immigration.
Our border security is a joke. Everyone knows that these people aren’t coming here for asylum. They’re coming here because of their financial and economic issues, and are attracted to America’s welfare state. If they only wanted asylum from danger, they would have stayed in Mexico.
This caravan’s entitled attitude is completely unfair to those who took the time and effort to come here legally.
Our weak border is being exploited by traffickers, terrorists and criminals, but for now at least some of the criminals are being locked up. Well done Border Patrol. Stay safe and keep us safe.
