Earlier today our fearless leader gave a long speech at the White House which too direct aim at what he called the “chaos at our southern border”. The speech took place while US troops were landing at the southern border to take control of the situation there. A caravan with fifteen thousand MS13 members, babies with small pox, and anchor babies is slowing nearly the US border with Mexico.
Trump also insisted his administration will require asylum seekers to “lawfully present themselves” at the southern border in a neat, proper, and orderly fashion.
The caravan seems to have lost a few members, but continues forward towards the United States with the intention of violating our border. It’s entirely possible asylum claims made by migrants caught crossing the border illegally would seemingly be summarily denied under Trump’s new policy.
Trump has called members of the caravan “not legitimate asylum-seekers”. Trump also said today that “Asylum is not a program for people living in poverty.” Trump is clearly on a roll, days before the midterms.
The President also issued a direct warning to the caravan members, warning them that if they throw rocks at US troops they will be considered to be using “deadly force” and US troops would be allowed to return fire.
The president also issued something of a warning to members of the caravan, including those who reportedly threw rocks at members of the Mexican police this week. “We will consider that a firearm,” Trump said. “We will consider that the maximum we can consider that, because they’re throwing rocks viciously and violently. …. We’re not going to put up with that. They want to throw rocks at our military, our military fights back. I told them to consider it a rifle. When they throw rocks, like they did at the Mexico military and police, I said, consider it a rifle.”
