On October 26, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto launched a program on Friday dubbed “You are home.” His program promised shelter, medical attention, schooling and jobs to Central Americans who would agree to stay in the southern Mexico states of Chiapas or Oaxaca.
It wasn’t safety, medical care, schooling or jobs they wanted. They were determined to illegally invade the United States and Democrats have embraced their plans.
If criminals living in the U.S. were offered jobs, health care, and free education, but they refused because they preferring breaking into homes and stealing the belongings of law-abiding Americans, how popular would it be for Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) or Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to stand in front of a microphone at a press conference and defend them? So why then, do Americans accept it, when they stand in front of a microphone and defend the illegal invasion of our country by thousands of mostly men invaders who refused to accept an offer to stay and work in Mexico?
Two days ago, President Trump addressed the illegal caravan situation:
We’re going to have a strong border. Our southern border is going to very strong. … [Y]ou’ve got to have borders. If you don’t have borders, you don’t have a country.
I mean, the Democrats want open borders, and they want these people coming in. Many of those people are criminals, okay? And have been so adjudged. We know who they are. They have records. They have, some, very substantial criminal records, some very bad criminal records. They’re in the caravan.
You saw what happened in Tijuana, where a number of the people said these are tough people. They start fighting; they’re starting fistfights. They have fistfights all over the streets. They’re starting fistfights. They said, “These are not like normal, innocent people.” These are people, you talk to them, and they start a fistfight. I don’t want that in this country. Okay?
You ask the people in Tijuana, Mexico — they opened with wide arms, just, “Come in, come in. Let me help you. Let us take care of you.” And within two days, now they’re going crazy to get them out. They want them out. Because things are happening. Bad, bad things are happening in Tijuana. And again, it’s not in this country, because we’ve closed it up.
I actually — two days ago, we closed the border. We actually just closed it. We’re saying, nobody is coming in, because it was out of control. But you take a look at Tijuana, Mexico, and you see what’s happening there — it’s really a bad situation.
And Mexico cannot believe how tough these people are. The mayor of Tijuana and so many others had said, “Boy, these are tough people.” They start fighting right away; they’re tough people. You have many criminals in that caravan, and the big caravan hasn’t arrived yet. And we’re very well fortified. We have fencing and walls like very few people have. We’ve been able to do it rather quickly. Concertino wire — Concertina wire. And so many other things are there now that they didn’t have. And they’re not coming through. We’re not letting criminals into our country. Got to come in legally. You have to come into a process.
And we want people to come in because I have many, many companies moving back into the United States. They’re opening up car plants. They’re opening up factories all over the country. The United States is booming. We have the lowest unemployment we’ve, essentially, in most groups, ever had.
So we have a lot of good things happening. We need workers, but they have to come in legally. We want them to come in, but they have to be people that want to work and want to do a great job for our country. They come in through a merit system. They have to come in.
Right now, under the Democrats, they don’t have a merit system. They want open borders, and people can just flow in. You have tremendously dangerous people in those caravans. And we do not want them coming into the United States, and we’re not going to let them.
