(1) Thread #6: Mass illegal immigration attempts.

November 25, 2018: The standoff continues in Tijuana and other border cities. The US has the ability and the will to win this, even with existing crappy laws.

Directory of caravan threads:

(2) BTW, the man dressed in camo and holding a rifle in the above photo isn't military, he's law enforcement. They've always been able to lawfully use force to save the lives of others. Border patrol officers get murdered. Of course they are allowed to shoot back.
(3) I've seen liberal MSM reporters refer to Tijuana as a "town." The population is >1.2 million.

If 10k caravaners are there, that's a ratio of 1:120. There's bound to be a few open borders fans among the locals. They could billet people in their homes, but no.
(4) Tijuana's socialists cd temp. house caravaners, protecting them from violence & infectious disease in the squalid "campsites." They won't, bc socialists are usually selfish & hypocritical, they want to storm the border & garner sympathy through photos.

All doomed to fail.
(5) Every time I see a photo of caravaners that is designed to garner sympathy, I just think of the other 9,200,000 Hondurans (for example) who have at least as much need to "flee poverty & violence" but had more sense than to drag their babies & kids through all this.
(6) Since Oct 11, while all this has been going on, the US military have been generously aiding Central & South American countries with visits by the USNS Comfort, replete with hundreds of medical staff, operating theaters, and so on.

(7) US aid to Latin America is not a waste of taxpayer money. It is in America's interests to carry out a range of activities in the hemisphere, for more reasons than I will explain here. It is also a carrot the US can threaten to take away, avoiding the need to use a stick.
(8) In recent days, the US has been backing the Mexican govt into a corner of their own making, by insisting that MX deal with its caravan-appeasing problem. Anyone who thinks they can "wait out" the Trump-led GOP on this issue is sorely mistaken. Actions speak louder than words.
(9) The source of accurate news about the border situation that I rely on the most:…
(10) This incredibly foolish woman from Guatemala tried to climb over a border fence, along with children aged 3 and 5!

She's now in a US hospital with some rather painful injuries, & the kids being PROPERLY cared for. I wouldn't give them back. Ever.…
(11) To be clear: The woman obviously made it over the fence & landed in the US, so the US is stuck with her & the kids for now. I'd imagine in due course that #YouHaveToGoBack, but I wish those kids could be adopted by adults, somewhere, who won't risk their little lives.
(12) Here's what happened in Tijuana Sunday.…
(13) Just one of many cases to come, where current caravan members are arrested for violence and, upon checking their record, are found to have a criminal history that means they would never be allowed in lawfully.
