~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
This is an INVASION! The President must send our military to the border once they get close! This can not be allowed to stand any longer! Period!
President Trump tweeted on Sunday that border security officials continued their "full efforts ... to stop the onslaught of illegal aliens" attempting to travel to the U.S. southern border via a large migrant caravan — while also describing such caravans as "a disgrace to the Democrat Party."
"People have to apply for asylum in Mexico first, and if they fail to do that, the U.S. will turn them away," Trump tweeted. "The courts are asking the U.S. to do things that are not doable!"
The caravan of Central American migrants has anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000 people — mainly from Honduras — according to estimates.
In a follow-up tweet, Trump stated: "The Caravans are a disgrace to the Democrat Party. Change the immigration laws NOW!"
At his campaign rally in Montana Thursday night, Trump told the crowd the upcoming midterm elections will be "an election of Kavanaugh, the caravan, law and order and common sense. ... Remember, it's gonna be an election of the caravan."
The president, without elaborating further, blamed the Democrats for the caravan on Twitter last week, blaming them for "weak laws."
U.S. and Mexican officials agreed upon a plan to handle the approaching caravan, a senior administration official told Fox News on Thursday. The plan includes Mexico requesting that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) establish shelters along its southern border with Central America, the official said.
UNHCR spokesman Chris McGrath confirmed Saturday the agency has “deployed teams to the Mexican border with Guatemala where they are working closely with Mexican officials . . . so all individuals can be processed and provided with essential services, including access to health services, food and shelter.”
Get Mexico to allow US troops inside Mexico for up to two miles past the US-Mexico border.
Get Mexico to provide supervisory personnel to ensure the US does not move past the two mile limit.
Any of the invading force that enters the two mile buffer zone will be redirected to assembly areas where they will be put on transportation to a military aircraft and then flown back to their country. The entire operation will take place in Mexico and therefore not trigger US laws on immigration.
This may very well end up as the showdown of showdowns. The U.S.'s resolve is about to be tested to the breaking point. Mexico will never allow U.S. troops to take a stand in Mexico, any more than the U.S. will allow Mexican troops onto U.S. soil. I'm afraid that these paid unarmed, unsuspecting civilian mercenaries will need to be fired upon, but not until they illegally cross the border. Of course this will draw the ire of every Leftist and Leftist nation in the world, and may very well determine if the U.S. values it's sovereignty enough to protect it with lethal force. Either way, the U.S. will be considered weak, or tyrannical or strong against invasion. A lose, lose or draw for the American citizen, caused by Leftists calling themselves Democrats. This entire orchestrated scenario was designed to bring down Constitutional Conservative government and replace law and order with mob rule and eventual anarchy. If blood needs to be spilled to preserve our Republic, then so be it. A country without laws isn't a country at all. Weakness is the one side the U.S. cannot show, regardless of the consequences. Our nation can defend it's right to protect it's borders from invasion whatever the cost, but it will never have a defense of it's weakness and sell out in the eyes of it's own citizens, or it's allies.
As our founding fathers did 243 years ago, so should we do today. Seek the Lord's Divine Providence, and then follow through. The United States of America, a Republic born through an ideal of freedom and liberty that stood against insurmountable odds to achieve that ideal, cannot allow weakness in the face of it's enemies today, especially it's enemies within.
"The tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it's natural manure." (Thomas Jefferson) We may well approaching that time once again. Long live our Republic!
Short of using force, which I doubt we will do, I don't know any way to stop them. Even using non-lethal force may not be enough given the size. They could easily overwhelm us. That is a HUGE amount of people. I hope I'm wrong, but unless there is some miracle between now and then, I'm not very optimistic.
This is getting mighty UGLY! This is a flat out invasion! They aren’t asylum seekers! We must demand that our government protect us, and, close borders now. American citizens are gearing up to go there and do it! This must be stopped!/strong>/strong>
They are walking only for the cameras, then, being loaded in buses and onto trucks, then are being driven further north.
The Lawless Caravan of illegal aliens from Honduras was offered asylum in Mexico.
Current estimates are around 10,000. However, the South American group is expected to hook up with an organized group of approximately 40,000 Mexicans in the next few days and reach the U.S. border near election week with well over 50k people total.
Check out these vids below.
Louie Gohmert on the caravan: "It's called an invasion.
The president has to close the border until this threat is over. Because it is an invasion.”
More footage of beleaguered invaders Trecking through the backcountry on foot.
Univision is reporting that the number is closer to 10k than 7k. Also at the 2 minute mark the reporter says there are buses that will take these people to our southern border. This is clearly an organized, well funded invasion.
Trump Cuts Off Aid To Countries Helping Migrant Caravan
According to The Hill…
President Trump on Monday said that the U.S. will begin to cut off or reduce aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador as citizens of those countries flee for the U.S. as part of a so-called “caravan” of migrants.
In a trio of tweets, the president escalated his rhetoric surrounding the group of migrants, declaring a national emergency as they approach the border and claiming that “unknown Middle Easterners” had joined the group.
“Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them,” Trump wrote in a tweet.
Cutting off aid to the countries of origin will most likely only encourage those governments to open the floodgates even more. Also, the President did not mention what — if any — sanction against Mexico we would be issuing being the caravan is heading north over 2000 miles of Mexico to get here.
THE CARAVAN ISN'T WALKING TO THE U.S.!!
They only walk for the cameras. Then they are being SHIPPED here in trucks and buses.
‘Thank God’: Former ICE Director Says Trump Is A ‘Bulldog’ Who Will Stop Migrant Caravan
Former Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan said he’s “glad” that President Trump is leading the defensive effort to prevent a migrant caravan from entering the United States.
After leaving Honduras, a caravan of between 5,000 and 10,000 migrants has made it as far as central Mexico and is heading to the U.S. President Trump has repeatedly said he would not allow any unlawful entry to take place and has threatened the use of U.S. military forces to deter or prevent the caravan.
Homan, who retired from his post at the immigration agency over the summer, called Trump a “bulldog” and said he would do what it took to protect the U.S.-Mexico border and prevent entry.
“I’m glad we’ve got a president that’s a bulldog and is gonna protect this country at all costs,” Homan said, as Fox News Insider reports.
Sara Carter Proves Trump 100% Right, Officials ID Overseas Nationals Lurking in Caravan
In a tweet posted Monday, independent reporter Sara Carter announced that people from India, Bangladesh, and a country in Africa are now part of the 7,000-strong mob. Caravan members plan to request asylum at the United States border.

Guatemalan intelligence discovered people from India, Bangladesh, Africa had also joined in with the caravan -I bumped into a number of young MS 13 gang members. @JudicialWatch Chris Farrell and Guatemalan Secretary of Strategic Intelligence Mario Duarte on the border w/ me

With no clear picture of who the caravan is made of, late joiners and outsiders have a seemingly easy time of blending in. For terrorists, this would be a golden opportunity.
Some even claim the U.S. military should intervene on the southern border, likening the mob to an invasion force.
I'm hearing this today, which I fully expected. The left will be screaming about Posse Comitatus from the top of their lungs. The President can send the military and he darn well better. Read the last paragraph! This IS A NATIONAL EMERGENCY!
Posse Comitatus and Martial Law
The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 prohibits the use of U.S. military forces to perform the tasks of civilian law enforcement such as arrest, apprehension, interrogation, and detention unless explicitly authorized by Congress.
The Posse Comitatus Act, signed into law by President Rutherford B. Hayes on June 18, 1878, limits the power of the federal government in the use of federal military personnel to enforce U.S. laws and domestic policies within the borders of the United States. The law was passed as an amendment to an army appropriation bill following the end of Reconstruction and was subsequently amended in 1956 and 1981.
As originally enacted in 1878, the Posse Comitatus Act applied only to the U.S. Army but was amended in 1956 to include the Air Force. In addition, the Department of the Navy has enacted regulations intended to apply the Posse Comitatus Act restrictions to the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.
The Posse Comitatus Act does not apply to the Army National Guard and the Air National Guard when acting in a law enforcement capacity within its own state when ordered by the governor of that state or in an adjacent state if invited by that state’s governor.
Operating under the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Coast Guard is not covered by the Posse Comitatus Act. While the Coast Guard is an “armed service,” it also has both a maritime law enforcement mission and a federal regulatory agency mission.
The Posse Comitatus Act was originally enacted due to the feeling of many members of Congress at the time that President Abraham Lincoln had exceeded his authority during the Civil War by suspending habeas corpus and creating military courts with jurisdiction over civilians.
It should be noted that the Posse Comitatus Act greatly limits, but does not eliminate the power of the President of the United States to declare "martial law," the assumption of all civilian police powers by the military.
The president, under his or her constitutional powers to put down insurrection, rebellion, or invasion, may declare martial law when local law enforcement and court systems have ceased to function. For example, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, President Roosevelt declared martial law in Hawaii at the request of the territorial governor.
What the National Guard Can Do on the Border
The Posse Comitatus Act and subsequent legislation specifically prohibit the use of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines to enforce the domestic laws of the United States except when expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress. Since it enforces maritime safety, environmental and trade laws, the Coast Guard is exempt from the Posse Comitatus Act.
What the National Guard Cannot Do on the Border
Operating within the limitations of the Posse Comitatus Act, and as acknowledged by the Obama administration, National Guard troops deployed to the Mexican Border States should, as directed by the states' governors, support the Border Patrol and state and local law enforcement agencies by providing surveillance, intelligence gathering, and reconnaissance support. In addition, the troops will assist with "counternarcotics enforcement" duties until additional Border Patrol agents are trained and in place. The Guard troops may also assist in the construction of roads, fences, surveillance towers and vehicle barriers necessary to prevent illegal border crossings.
Under the Defense Authorization Act for FY2007 (H.R. 5122), the Secretary of Defense, upon a request from the Secretary of Homeland Security, can also assist in preventing terrorists, drug traffickers, and illegal aliens from entering the United States.
Where Congress Stands On the Posse Comitatus Act
On Oct. 25, 2005, the House of Representatives and Senate enacted a joint resolution (H. CON. RES. 274) clarifying Congress' stance on the effect of the Posse Comitatus Act on the use of the military on U.S. soil. In part, the resolution states "by its express terms, the Posse Comitatus Act is not a complete barrier to the use of the Armed Forces for a range of domestic purposes, including law enforcement functions, when the use of the Armed Forces is authorized by Act of Congress or the President determines that the use of the Armed Forces is required to fulfill the President's obligations under the Constitution to respond promptly in time of war, insurrection, or other serious emergency."
Here We Go!

*** PRESIDENT ORDERS MILITARY DEPLOYMENT TO SOUTHERN BORDER ***
Category: U.S. National News
Monday, 22 October 2018 11:36
President Donald Trump signed DEPLOYMENT ORDERS for the 82nd Airborne Division of the United States Army, instructing them to deploy from Ft. Bragg, NC, to the U.S. southern border at Mexico.
In addition, the 1st Armored Division of the United States Army at Ft. Bliss, TX (Corrected Base info at 7:18 PM EDT) has been given 72 Hour ready-standby orders to begin shipping armored vehicles to the southern border via rail.
Covert Intelligence information confirms the present "migrant caravan" heading toward the US border from Honduras and Guatemala has grown to slightly more than TEN THOUSAND, but that an additional 40,000 Mexicans are staging in northern Mexico to join-up with that caravan.
The OPEN PLAN THEY ARE IMPLEMENTING is for more than fifty thousand of these so-called "migrants" to physically storm the U.S. border to gain entry into our country.
President Trump is not going to allow that.
Article 4, Section 4 of the US Constitution REQUIRES the federal government to protect each of the states from invasion. The "migrant caravan" is now classified as "an invasion force" against which the US government will take action.
Trump Sending Troops to Border, an Issue That Fires Up Base
There already are about 2,000 National Guard troops assisting at the border under a previous Pentagon arrangement
The Trump administration is planning to dispatch at least 800 active duty troops to the southern border at the direction of a president who has sought to transform fears about immigration into electoral gains in the midterms as a caravan of thousands of migrants makes its way through Mexico.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is expected to sign an order sending the troops to the border, bolstering National Guard forces already there, an official said Thursday. The action comes as President Donald Trump has spent recent days calling attention to the caravan of Central Americans slowly making their way by foot into southern Mexico, but still more than 1,000 miles from U.S. soil.
This is great news!
President Trump will be signing an Executive Order To Stop the 14,000 Migrant Caravan from entering the US
Reuter’s is reporting the migrants will not be permitted to enter the US and NO ASYLUM claims will be granted.
President Trump is doing what he can to fulfill a promise to secure the border and to not allow the 14,000 strong migrant caravan to invade America. Yes, the caravan is an invasion. There’s no other way to put it. What other country would allow thousands to descend on them like this?
President Trump is weighing an executive action and regulatory change to block a caravan of Central American migrants from entering the United States, according to a DHS official, an administration official and three people familiar with the move. The president warned the caravan members earlier today to turn around: The caravan has grown to 14,000!
Under the plan, Politico reports the Trump administration would publish fast-track regulation that would restrict certain migrants’ ability to seek asylum. The regulation would be paired with a related proclamation from President Donald Trump.
A White House official reports:
“The administration is considering a wide range of administrative, legal and legislative options to address the Democrat-created crisis of mass illegal immigration. No decisions have been made at this time. Nor will we forecast to smugglers or caravans what precise strategies will or will not be deployed.”
BUILD THE WALL!
Trump just does not give up! MAGA!
Confirmed: Open Borders Group Behind Illegal Alien Caravan Is Linked to Soros’s Open Society
The open borders group behind the illegal alien caravan marching to the US border is funded by several liberal organizations including Soros’s Open Society.
The Pueblo Sin Fronteras (“People Without Borders”) is a project of La Familia Latina Unida, a Chicago, Illinois-based 501(c)(4) illegal immigration advocacy organization formed in 2001 by Elvira Arellano, an activist for immigrants living illegally in the United States.
The group is part of the CARA Coalition and is funded by a number of major left-of-center grantmaking foundations, including the Open Society Foundations, MacArthur Foundation, Ford Foundation, and Carnegie Corporation of New York.
