Invasion force or refugees?

Huixtla (Mexico) (AFP) - Thousands of Honduran migrants heading to the United States -- a caravan President Donald Trump has called an "assault on our country" -- stopped to rest Tuesday after walking for two days into Mexican territory.

Sleeping on cardboard boxes or plastic bags, the migrants set up a massive, impromptu camp in the southern town of Huixtla, 70 kilometers (45 miles) from the Mexico-Guatemala border.

Many nursed bleeding feet mangled by 10 days of walking nearly 800 kilometers in plastic shoes or flip-flops.

"They're exhausted," said migrant rights activist Rodrigo Abeja, of the group Pueblos Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders), which is accompanying the caravan.

"They're going to rest here today and tonight," and then continue their journey north, he told AFP.

The Department of Homeland Security on Thursday defended claims by President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence that violent criminals are a component of the Honduran caravan making its way through Mexico toward the U.S., after reporters at the White House questioned how they know that.

"@DHSgov can confirm that there are individuals within the caravan who are gang members or have significant criminal histories," DHS spokesman Tyler Houlton wrote in a series of tweets Tuesday evening.

"Citizens of countries outside Central America, including countries in the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, and elsewhere are currently traveling through Mexico toward the U.S.," he said.

How it started?

Donald Trump is threatening to deploy the US military and close the southern border with Mexico if a convoy of migrants from Central America is allowed to keep moving northwards.

The president made his threats in a series of tweets early on Thursday morning, demanding that the Mexican government turn around the convoy.

?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!? he said.

Invasion force. As many of them intend to enter illegally.....Breaking the law the very second they cross the border.

By some reports the number of refugees in the caravan is now 12,000.  In order to reach the U.S. border in time for the elections, these people are going to have to be bussed, mostly with the news media looking the other way.

Exactly and there are credible reports that's exactly what's happening.  I read on one report that its a minimum 70 day trek on foot.  Well they best get hoofin it if they're gonna make the elections.

Now I have no doubts that many are indeed running from economic disaster, thank you socialism (again), but America is STILL a sovereign Nation with laws and a border that needs to be respected.

My wife and I are slogging through that front door via the immigration system and it really grinds my gears to watch people sneak in the back door (illegally).  Come thru the front door or stay the fork out.

The last bunch didn't actually, but who knows how this one will play out.
