For months, the media and Democrats have been championing the cause of the migrants marching toward the U.S. border. These caravans were supposedly about good, hard working migrants just looking for job opportunities in the United States and fleeing oppressive governments. In reality, the caravans have been a melting pot of different agendas. While some are truly looking for opportunities, others are scam artists.
With an army of 10,000 migrants closing in on the Southern border, The White House is considering a range of options including a temporary halt to asylum. The first step should be to order the United States military to secure the 2,000-mile border with Mexico. Today, it was reported that approximately 1,000 troops would be deployed to the border to provide additional resources to the U.S. Border Patrol. While this would be a good first stop, it is woefully inadequate. The time is now for President Donald Trump to take dramatic action and these bold steps would have the support of the American people.
