In a series of tweets, President Trump pointed out the irony of large Caravans of people (mostly young men) “marching to our border wanting U.S.A. asylum because they are fearful of being in their country – yet they are proudly waving…
…their country’s flag.”
Trump asked, “Can this be possible?”
He responded to himself, “Yes, because it is all a big CON, and the American taxpayer is paying for it.”
Leading the caravan in this image, is a man carrying a Honduran flag, the nation they claim to be running from.
In mid-October, NBC Chicago reported about Nery Jose Maldonado Tejada, a 29-year-old from San Pedro Sula, said he lost both feet in a June 2015 freight train accident in Mexico while trying to make it to the United States.
Should US taxpayers be responsible for the massive health care costs of migrants entering the US, needing prosthetics, maternity costs, and foreign-born illnesses? What about the millions of working and non-working Americans who can’t afford to pay the health costs for their own families?
Tuberculosis, which occurs in nearly one-third of all people worldwide, is a leading cause of death throughout the world. Eight million new cases of tuberculosis and an estimated 3 million deaths due to the disease occur annually. Tuberculosis was also the leading cause of death in the United States during the 19th century and the early 20th century. As housing and nutrition have improved, the presence of tuberculosis in the US-born population has been largely confined to low-income minority groups, homeless individuals, and alcoholics.
Similar declines have not yet been achieved in developing countries. Thus, in the United States, tuberculosis increasingly is becoming a disease of immigrants. Since 1995, 40% of patients in the United States who have tuberculosis have been foreign-born. More than one-quarter of tuberculosis cases among foreign-born individuals have occurred in immigrants from Mexico.
How many members of the caravan are gang members or drug dealers? How many of them have criminal backgrounds?
Here’s a recent video that was captured in Tijuana as the massive group of migrants wait to cross our borders.
How many are politically motivated activists who will fight with Democrats, who are openly advocating for a Socialist form of government in the US?
In a statement, Honduras’ Foreign Ministry called the caravan a movement that is “obviously political and seeks to upset governability, stability, and peace in Honduras and the United States.” He accused unidentified “political sectors” of organizing the caravan with “false promises” of a transit visa through Mexico and the opportunity to seek asylum in the United States. He also urged the migrants not to let themselves “be used by a movement that is
Meanwhile, Mexico’s immigration authority sent out a fresh warning, that only those who meet entry requirements would be allowed into the country and each migrant would have to satisfy Mexican migration agents. Hondurans need visas to visit Mexico in most cases.
Can the United States of America absorb all of the economic migrants?
“In Honduras, there are no jobs, and the jobs that do exist aren’t enough to live on,” said Jose Francisco Hernandez, a 32-year-old from Copan state in western Honduras. “We can’t go to the city because it is full of gang members, and that is hurting us. We decided to migrate from the country to see if we can find a better life.”
On October 15, Guatemalan officials detained a former Honduran lawmaker, Bartolo Fuentes, who was traveling with the caravan, along with two other men, according to a migration official. Some Honduran organizations had identified Fuentes as a coordinator or spokesman for the caravan, though the migrants said he was merely accompanying them and helping.
Who’s behind the organization of the caravan? Who’s funding the invasion of our southern border with thousands of illegal aliens?
Rep Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tweeted a stunning video showing a man passing out cash to members of the caravan as they traveled to the US:
