Even Trump didn’t expect Mexico’s reply to his caravan demands.
Just in time for the midterm elections in a few weeks, 4,000 “refugees” from Honduras are marching to our border to demand entrance into our country.
These people are claiming to be desperate migrants, yet many of them appear to be well-fed men who are waving the Honduras flag.
Some have even speculated that this has all been orchestrated just days before the 2018 midterms by the Left.
The wall is still under construction, and there’s virtually nothing stopping these people from reaching our border – except the countries that lie between Honduras and the United States.
Trump has warned Honduras he will pull all U.S. aid from the country if they allow this caravan to continue, but despite orders from Honduras to turn back, the group is walking on.
Trump sent out another warning to Mexico, the country that stands between us and this horde of invaders, telling them that if they don’t intervene he will unleash the might of the U.S. military at the border.
….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

Now it appears that Mexico is finally waking up and taking action.
From USA Today:
The government of Mexico dispatched two 727 Boeing planes filled with federal police officers to its southern border with Guatemala on Wednesday to intercept a caravan of Central American migrants who are trying to reach the U.S. border.
The Interior and Foreign Relations ministries said in a joint statement that any migrant in the caravan without proper immigration papers would be arrested and “returned to their country of origin.” Those with proper documents or wishing to apply for asylum would be allowed to enter Mexico.
It’s about time Mexico started doing its part in intercepting these illegal immigrants.
Too often the Mexican government has helped people from Central America reach our borders, providing them with food and transportation in an effort to get them out of their country to make them our problem.
SHARE if you think Trump just proved he can protect Americans from border invasions!
Now it’s official! Mexico is working with Trump hand-in-hand on this issue. Maybe because of the new NAFTA treaty, maybe because he’s threatening to pull funding and aid.
But maybe it’s because they respect a strong, principled president like Trump! From Fox News:
U.S. and Mexican officials have agreed on a plan to handle the approaching migrant caravan making their way up from Central America, a senior administration official told Fox News on Thursday.
If an individual manages to evade the new system and travels through Mexico to eventually cross the border into the U.S., Mexico will now allow those persons to be returned to Mexico, the official told Fox News.
The Democrats are firing back, accusing the President and Republicans of having no sympathy for these refugees feeling violence and poverty.
But we have violence and poverty in our own country, and Trump has vowed to put America first.
He is keeping his promise, and no matter how much the media tries to spin the situation, the President is treating this caravan like the invasion it is.
No one is sure how this will end, but it looks like Mexico has come to heel, and Trump is going to get a huge win out of this.
Having Mexico’s assistance will hopefully spare our Border Patrol and our citizens from being put in a dangerous situation.
SHARE if you’re proud of the President for standing up to this mob!
