Clash Poll: Trump Says Mexican Illegals Are Ruining The US – Is He Right Or Ridiculous?

Written by K. Walker on April 2, 2018

A ‘caravan’ of 1000+ migrants has kicked up the debate again.

The left is cheering their arrival and eager to raise this as a political issue.

Buzzfeed (who you may remember from their role in making the Steele ‘Pee’ Dossier public) has been described as being ’embedded’ with this caravan of mostly Hondurans making its way to the US border.

First, the background: Right now, there is a massive group — hundreds and hundreds — of Central Americans who are headed toward the US border. They’re in Mexico without authorization, but no one’s made any effort to stop them.

Where are they from? About 80% are from Honduras. They’re fleeing poverty but also political unrest and violence.

Who organized this caravan? A group of volunteers called Pueblos Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders. Yes, the volunteers are also surprised by the size of the group.

Dude, I’m still not clear on why a caravan. The caravan is intended to help migrants safely reach the US, bypassing not only authorities who would seek to deport them, but also gangs and cartels who are known to assault vulnerable migrants.

And what’s their plan? The people in the caravan hope US authorities will grant them asylum or, for some, will be absent when they attempt to cross the border illegally.

They’re hoping to just walk right in. And that’s the problem.

The left cheers that idea, of course. That’s because they don’t really differentiate between an illegal immigrant and a legal one. If they want to learn the difference, we’ve covered that, here:

The key point is, they walked right into Mexico. And nobody said ‘boo’ about it. Because everyone there understands that Mexico is not the last stop on their journey.

If it were, there are certain standards that need to be met, according to an offical website:

To apply for and be granted a permanent resident visa, the applicants must:

have certain close family connections in Mexico, or
apply for retirement status and prove they have sufficient monthly income (or substantial assets) to support themselves, or
have 4 consecutive years of regular status as Temporary Resident, or
have 2 consecutive years of regular status as Temporary Resident where that Temporary Visa was issued through marriage to a Mexican National or a foreign permanent resident, or
meet a minimum score under the Points System*, or
be granted residency on humanitarian grounds or through political asylum.
If your goal is to seek long-term residency in Mexico, or to become a Mexican Citizen, you should apply for a Permanent Resident Visa.

Upon receiving immigrated status, you will receive a plastic card that looks like a driver’s license. This card enables you to pass through Mexico’s borders as if you were a Mexican national.

From another Buzzfeed article, let’s look at the key idea:

Taking a drag from her cigarette, a Mexican immigration agent looked out toward a caravan of migrants that grew larger with each step they took on the two-lane highway.

When the agent, who’d covered her uniform with an orange and white shawl, learned that the Central American migrants heading her way numbered more than 1,000, she took off for the restaurant across the street.

“I’m going to have a relaxing Coke,” she told BuzzFeed News.

For five days now hundreds of Central Americans — children, women, and men, most of them from Honduras — have boldly crossed immigration checkpoints, military bases, and police in a desperate, sometimes chaotic march toward the United States. Despite their being in Mexico without authorization, no one has made any effort to stop them.

The plan is to bully their way into America, by becoming a swarm of people too big to refuse, and becoming — presumably — an international incident.

The key point is… nobody in Mexico has bothered to stop them. This means they have been welcomed into Mexico. That should make them Mexico’s responsibility, shouldn’t it?

Trump is calling on Mexico to stop turning a blind eye to these big groups of foreign nationals marching north across Mexico in hopes of entering America illegally.

If not, he’s holding those NAFTA negotiations as, well, a Trump card.

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.

Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.

Ladies, tell everyone that you don’t like the emasculated, metro-sexual ‘feminists’ — you’d rather have a President with balls:

And gents, let everyone know that you want your President to be just as much of a man as you are:

Donald J. Trump is our 45th President. Why? Because Americans from all races and classes are sick of whining Republicans and corrupt Democrats. Finally, we have a President who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks even if it is not popular with the press. Trump is not a typical politician. Trump can’t be bought. He will back up what he says with action, no matter the cost. Finally. A president with balls!
Get yours today and trigger the leftists and the RINO NeverTrumpers.
