Trump says he has 'instructed' DHS Secretary Nielsen not to let caravans into US: 'It is a disgrace'

President Trump said Monday he has “instructed” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen not to allow “large caravans of people” into the U.S. as a group of Central American migrants starts to reach the border, calling the situation a “disgrace.”

“Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country. It is a disgrace. We are the only Country in the World so naïve! WALL,” Trump tweeted early Monday.

The president’s directive came as a group of about 50 Central American migrants who left southern Mexico in March reportedly reached the U.S. border, planning to seek asylum. According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, asylum seekers must “demonstrate [they] have suffered persecution or fear that they will suffer persecution due to” five factors: race, religion, nationalist, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion."

Mexico has enlisted foreign auxiliaries in its campaign of conquest by means of infiltration.

Let’s see how Mexico deals with the immigrant camp that will develop on their side of the border. Let’s learn from them.

Once here they will be released into the US and we will be stuck with them.
Mexico let them in, they are Mexico’s problem.

Worth repeating, you're dead on the mark.

It’s just a “group of about 50 Central American migrants.” How bad can a tiny group like that be? That Trump is sure mean to keep only 50people out.

Just a couple weeks ago the “caravan” was reported to be 1,000 to 1,500 people planning to mount an assault on our border. What happened to the rest of them?

Or is the press lying again about the numbers?

They were allowed entrance into the country of Mexico. I would now consider them to be legal residents of the country of Mexico. They are no longer persecuted as they were allowed to enter the country of Mexico.

Has DJT run this plan by the neo-Bolsheviks at the National Review? The Weakly Standard? Dana Perino? This clown?

This should be considered an act of aggression by Mexico...and we should retaliate. Big time

If you shoot the first wave the second wave, and successive ones thereafter, don’t happen.

In the end it is the least-harm approach to solving the problem.

Good point...and I would bet a bundle that the greedy Mexicans are pocketing bigtime to let these people gather at the border.

Their in Mexico. Thus, they’re and no longer subject to any persecution in their home country and Mexico’s refugees, not ours.

DO NOT LET A SINGLE ONE IN!
