The first Migrant Caravan formed last year and by some accounts hit as many as 15,000 migrants.
It was turned away at the U.S. border and the migrants have largely been kept in Mexico.
But according to President Trump and CBS News, a new Caravan is forming and is already at least 8,000 people strong.
Folks, what more proof do you need that it’s time to Build The Wall?
Take a look at this warning from our President:
We have turned away, at great expense, two major Caravans, but a big one has now formed and is coming. At least 8000 people! If we had a powerful Wall, they wouldn’t even try to make the long and dangerous journey. Build the Wall and Crime will Fall!
And to the people who say we don't need a Wall because we turned away the first Caravan without one, please pay attention to the "great expense" part of Trump's tweet.
Wouldn't it make a lot more sense to get a permanent barrier in place and reap those benefits for decades to come, rather than deploying many troops to the border to manually push back the Caravan?
And beyond that, it's impossible to manually patrol the entire border, it's simply not feasible.
We need the Wall. Period.
Here's more on the new Caravan, from CBS News:
A migrant caravan trying to reach the U.S. is expected to grow as thousands gather at Mexico's southern border awaiting entry. Last week, Mexico decided to fast-track humanitarian visas so migrants can enter legally and nearly 8,000 people have applied. So far, more than 500 visas have been issued.
Thousands of migrants are gathered on both sides of Mexico-Guatemala border because of the five-day waiting period to get visas. Now, those who had originally entered Mexico illegally are trying to backtrack to the border, so they too can get visas, reports CBS News' Adriana Diaz.
As the buses arrived in Tapachula, 15 miles north of the border, desperation set in. The lines began forming before dawn Tuesday as word spread that the Mexican government was transporting migrants who had entered illegally to get humanitarian visas.
In the line, Diaz met Salvadoran Aura Guinea and her 5-month-old daughter. She sees the visa as a means to get to the U.S. and is willing to keep trying. Many of the migrants have their sights set on the U.S. after entering Mexico illegally in the larger October caravan.
But some we spoke to, like Honduran Penny Steward, don't plan on leaving Mexico. She told us Donald Trump doesn't want anyone in his country and that the people who aren't stopped by that aren't thinking. Steward earned $2 a day washing dishes in Honduras but said a humanitarian visa could mean a better paying job in Mexico. In Honduras, she was homeless.
