Illegal Immigrant Caravan Puts Trump Legacy on the Line

USA -(Ammoland.com)- Our mainstream media remain consumed with the grisly killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, and how President Donald Trump will deal with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Understandably so, for this is the most riveting murder story since O.J. Simpson and has strategic implications across the Middle East.

Yet far more critical to the future of our civilization is the ongoing invasion of the West from the Third World.

Consider the impact of the decision by Chancellor Angela Merkel in 2015 to throw open Germany's doors to 1 million refugees from Syria's civil war.
Last weekend, in a crushing blow to Merkel, the Christian Social Union, the Bavarian sister party of her CDU, won its smallest share of the vote in half a century, 37 percent. Her coalition party, the SPD, saw its share of the Bavarian vote fall to a historic low of less than 10 percent.

The right-wing Alternative for Deutschland saw its support rise to 10 percent and has become a force in German politics. Some conservatives are urging the CDU to adopt the AfD hardline on illegal immigration.

The message sent by the Bavarian electorate is the message voters across Europe have been sending to their own capitals for years: You are failing in your first duty — defense of the homeland from foreign invasion. The mass migration of unassimilable peoples and cultures from a global South represents an existential threat to our Europe.

As Merkel's chancellorship approaches its end, French President Emmanuel Macron, her progressive EU partner, has seen his approval fall to below 30 percent.

The U.S.-led NATO alliance may guard the Baltic and the Black Sea regions against a Russian invasion from the east. But in Central, Southern, and Western Europe, the more feared invaders are the peoples of Africa and the Muslim world, whose numbers are expected to triple or quadruple by this century's end.

And as their numbers grow, so, too, does their desperation to escape, even at risk of their lives, the poverty, wars, and repression of their homelands to cross the Med and fill the empty spaces left by a depopulating Europe.

It also now appears that the U.S. elections, not three weeks away, may be affected by another immigration crisis on the U.S. border.

As of Thursday, a caravan of 4,000 refugees without visas had crossed from Honduras into Guatemala and was heading toward Mexico. By Election Day, it will either have been stopped, or it will be here. And this caravan is a portent of things to come.

According to The Washington Post, during FY 2018, which ended last month, 107,212 members of “family units” crossed over into the U.S., “obliterating the previous record of 77,857 set in 2016.

Citing DHS figures, the Post adds, “Border patrol agents arrested 16,658 family members in September alone, the highest one-month total on record and an 80 percent increase from July.”

When Trump, under intense political fire, ended his “zero tolerance” policy of separating refugees from their children, this message went out to Mexico and Central America:

Bring your kids with you when you cross the border. They will have to stay with you, and they cannot be held for more than 20 days. Thus, when they are released, you will be released to await a hearing on your claim of asylum. The odds are excellent that you can vanish into the U.S. population and never be sent back.

Enraged, Trump has threatened to cut off aid to El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala if they do not stop the caravans and has warned Mexico he will use the U.S. military to secure our border.

Unwanted mass migration is the issue of our time, as there is no foreseeable end to it before it alters America irremediably.

As these migrants are almost all poor, not highly skilled, and do not speak English, most will join that segment of our population that pays no income taxes but qualifies for social welfare benefits like food stamps, medical care and free education in our public schools.

They are thus a net drain upon the resources of a nation that is already, at full employment, running a deficit of $779 billion a year.

These migrants, however, are a present and future benefit to the Democratic Party that built and maintains our mammoth welfare state, and which, in presidential elections, routinely wins 70 to 90 percent of the votes of people whose trace their ancestry to Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

Not without reason, Democrats believe that if they can change the composition of the American electorate, they can control America forever.

If Donald Trump was elected on any one issue, it was immigration and his promises to secure the border, build the wall and halt the invasion. How he deals with the impending crisis of the migrant caravan may affect both the fate of his party in November and his presidency in 2020.

    1. Make it illegal to hire an ILLEGAL. Fine the Employers (a lot) for each Illegal they hire. Use the money for the wall.

    2. Isn’t this when the militiamen, minutemen and farmers with
      pitchforks, are supposed to ride in to save the country?

      I remember my history lessons. When the barbarians invaded
      Rome ….because they were smarter and more advanced than
      surrounding countries….. Rome fell into poverty.

      Granted, I would not have wanted to live there under their ruling
      system. But it just shows…. “Gimme-Dat’s”…… don’t care who they
      steal from, they just want what someone else, has ((((already built.))))

      It is no different if you built the house of your dreams….. and some
      ghetto rat decides that is his dream house also……and throws you
      out of it. Borders are no different. Pay your own way, the legal way!!!.

      Trump needs to show strength at the border….or this country is done.
      not

    3. This is an ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION, not immigration, immigrants enter the USA legally.

      How nice of these ILLEGAL ALIENS to proudly carry high the flag of their home nation of Honduras,
      while at the same time demand Asylum when invade the USA illegally.

    4. This massive bunch is coming here with a vengeance. They think they have a right and a privilege to invade our country and suck off the government as many before them has done. I hope Trump does dispatch the military to stop them but not with orders not to shoot or no weapons allowed like the National Guard a few weeks ago. Stop means we don’t want or need you here. If they have to keep breeding and producing offspring that isn’t our problem they need to deal with it on their own soil. They are poor and stupid, that’s not our problem either. I know we are supposed to help the less fortunate but there are plenty right here that could use the help. We are not the worlds dumping grounds. Cut off the handouts and leave it that way, it didn’t work.

    5. In my opinion, take it for whatever you think it’s worth, Trump has a clear choice. He either stops this “caravan”, or he is finished.

    6. Wild Bill:

      Interestingly, the operational phrase is If They Wanted To, as in the government of Mexico could stop this “carvan” business.

    7. What a shame the mass news media doesn’t give the same air time and front page story headlines about the innocent Americans killed by illegals in this country but the victims aren’t reporters so they don’t get the same treatment from the leftie news organizations.

    8. Simple fact, or truth. This “caravan” or “invasion” must be stopped, using peaceful means if possible, much preferable, or with as much force as might prove necessary. End of story.

      1. @Alan, Just shoot the bus tires. “The Caravan” consists of bus transport. The people just get off and walk a few hundred yards for the cameras and then get back on the bus. The buses are chartered by Nongovernmental Organizations (NGOs often times called relief agencies). The NGOs also get a discount rate from cartels to let the illegal aliens cross into the US.
        Put a hole in the bus tires. Put sugar in the gas tank. Eliminate the bus and eliminate the caravan. The Mexican government could do it easily if they wanted to.

    9. The wall needed to be already built in Arizona. That would have narrowed down the routes for these invaders to take and required less manpower to repel them. Trump failed to get the wall even started. I hold him (and all the other wimpy Repubs) responsible for that. If Mexico steps up and stops the invading horde, great, but I don’t believe they will. This is the ultimate test of the Trump administration and it won’t take long to see if they pass or fail. If they fail all bets are off for the midterm elections and we can look forward to more invasions resulting in the open borders some of the Dems are so gleefully pushing.

      1. Problem with that is that corrupt officials within the countries were aid is sent steal all the cash. The refugees never see a dime. We could send billions and they still will come.

      2. Turn off ALL foreign aid. We are close if not already 22 trillion in debt, until our Govt can get OUR house in order they have no business putting us more in debt!

    10. There is a parallel to what has happened in the European Union. In the EU it has been through the influx of third-world muslims. In in the US it is the third-world Hispanics. There are also thousands of muslims who have been allowed into this country thanks to the former PIMP in the WH. The end game is the same – destroy the Caucasian, Christian, European culture.
      It is not coincidence this is occurring before the mid-terms either. If Trump waits any longer it will be too late. I question whether or not he will act in time. Some say he is a great strategist but one cannot win every time. If he does not send the National Guard or other armed forces, all will be lost in the Mid-term elections as dead people and illegals will return the House to the communists. If the conservative republicans and/or independents fail to vote in November, well…. I fear for what will happen.
      In the past, I questioned those who say they will never give up their guns. However, since last year with the insanity looming in this country, I not only own a gun, I have a CCW. I now know what it means to say I will never give up my gun. I also know the 2nd Amendment was never about self-protection or hunting but IS for preventing a tyrannical government from overstepping their duties.
      Will Trump act soon or will he wait and botch things up, giving the House to the communists? Is he part of the betrayal or sincere in working to get this country safe and sound again? Only time, a very short time in this case, will reveal who’s “side” he’s on.

    11. The Demoncrats, the One World Government crowd and our treacherous Southern neighbors in Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico have joined forces against President Trump in an attempt to lessen a Republican turnout for the November midterm elections. Due to decades of carefully constructed U.S immigration laws designed to lessen U.S sovereignty, once these invaders feet touch U.S soil it’s a touchdown for the illegals. President Trump would have to order the U.S Army to fire artillery rounds into Mexico to stop the invading horde from reaching our border. That won’t be happening. The media and the invading horde made sure that the women and children are up front in the vanguard. Stand with President Trump, vote against all the Demoncrats and make sure President Trump has another four year term with a Republican House and Senate to set things right. The alternative is a surrender to global socialism’s tyranny. MAGA!

    12. As usual, Mr. Buchanan hits the nail on the head. All this immigration is like a 5th column. If nothing is done to stop it, we are doomed as 1st class Nation. We will become a 3rd world country. What our offspring will have to look forward to won’t be pretty.

    13. If you can’t speak English,…WHY THE FK ARE YOU BEING ALLOWED TO VOTE!?!?
      I’ll answer that: “because Democrats need foreign allies!”
      The democrat party is altering our country by this not “silent” but “unintelligible” and precisely foreign coup.
      It’s treason – plain and simple.
      Charge and disband the democratic party!
      They and their MSM-cohorts need to be beat down.
      (…and ALL corporations need to be extracted from their paid-for-influence position)
