President Trump warned that “unknown Middle Easterners” are mixed in with the invading army of migrants who are heading toward the U.S. Border.
Sadly, it looks like Mexico’s Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States. Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in. I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergy. Must change laws!

The Mainstream Media pitched a royal fit — accusing the president of being a racist.
“It’s not even a dog-whistle, it’s fear-mongering at its most naked,” CNN’s S.E. Cupp said. She referred to the caravan as a “humanitarian crisis,” and said that instead of trying to find solutions to the problem, “the president is choosing fear, to just keep people afraid.”
Sen. Jeff Flake, a longtime opponent of the president, said the approaching invaders are “either fleeing violence or looking for a better life.”
“That’s long been pretty much a canard and a fear tactic,” Flake told CNN.
