Our President will do everything within his power to keep the United States safe!
And he just proved it again.
While the Lefties want to accept all the Migrants in and probably give them welfare, Trump sees them as an invasion force.
President Trump has said that we either have strong borders or we don’t have a country!
And he’s right.
Do you agree?
The Des Moines Register had more on the story:
President Donald Trump on Monday vowed to send as many troops as necessary to the U.S.-Mexican border to block a growing caravan of Central American migrants, calling their trek “an assault on our country.”
In an exclusive interview with USA TODAY aboard Air Force One, the president said there were “people from the Middle East” in their ranks, reiterating a claim he made without evidence in a morning tweet. The president declined to say whether his assertion was based on intelligence agencies or some other source.
While Trump has made unsubstantiated charges that Democrats had funded the migrants, he said the television footage that showed them straggling north was rebounding to the political benefit of Republicans in the midterms. The caravan could be seen on a TV, tuned to Fox News, on the wall of his office aboard the presidential aircraft.
Honduras' Human Rights National Commissioner Roberto Herrera is pictured after being briefed on the situation regarding the recent passage of a massive caravan of Honduran migrants, at the Guatemala-Mexico border bridge, in Ciudad Tecun Uman, Guatemala, on Oct. 23, 2018. Late Monday, Mexico allowed another group of about 400 migrants to enter the country after they spent days packed onto a bridge over the Suchiate River, which forms Mexico's southern border with Guatemala.
“I think this could be a blessing in disguise because it shows how bad our laws are,” he said. “The Democrats are responsible for that.”
That was akin to the unexpected political repercussions of the bitter Senate confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh, now a Supreme Court justice. The controversy helped energize GOP voters in advance of the Nov. 6 elections, he said.
How many troops was he prepared to send to the border?
“As many as necessary,” he replied.
Trump has pummeled Democrats for weeks on immigration, harping on a proposal raised by some in the liberal wing of the party to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Though the idea is unlikely to ever become law, Trump has used it to paint Democrats as soft on crime and border security.
The president has also repeatedly used the caravan of Central American immigrants making its way to the United States as a political issue, at one point framing the election as hanging on the outcome of the migrants' journey. He has threatened to seal the border with Mexico and reduce foreign aid to Central America.
Despite the threats from the White House, the caravan has grown and there are reports that the number of families crossing the border has swelled after the White House backed down from parts of a stricter enforcement policy that forced the separation of thousands of immigrant families this year.
Trump made immigration a central issue of the 2016 campaign and polls show it still resonates, especially with Republican voters, with only weeks to go before the midterms. A CNN poll last week of voters in Texas, where Trump was holding a rally Monday evening, found that immigration was virtually tied with the economy as the top issue in the state's Senate contest.
