OMG! The “Caravan” Nears!

The invasion looms!

You have heard the silliness I am sure.  The mass of people walking their way to the border with the US is somehow a threat to our national security……first what moronic bullshit!

The Defense Department says it’s sending 5,200 active duty troops to “harden” the southern border against a migrant caravan making its way through Mexico, the AP reports. Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy tells reporters that 800 soldiers were en route on Monday and that the remainder of the troops would be at the southwest border by the end of the week. That’s in addition to the more than 2,000 members of the National Guard already providing assistance at the border now. Officials say the troops will provide “mission enhancing capabilities” and will be armed. The announcement comes as President Trump has been trying to focus on the caravan just a week before the midterm elections.

O’Shaughnessy says the military will cooperate with US Customs and Border Patrol as it first strengthens the border in Texas, then Arizona and California, the Washington Post reports. Among the deployed are US Army Corps of Engineers members, three combat engineer battalions, helicopters with night-vision capabilities to tell the CBP where help is needed, military police units, and cargo aircraft including a C-17 and three C-130s. The Pentagon has already sent down 22 miles of concertina wire and plans to send enough to cover 150 miles. The operation is called Operation Faithful. “Border security is national security,” O’Shaughnessy said Monday, per USA Today.

Another thought—–S Forces Deployed: Africa — 1000 Syria — 2000 Iraq — 5000 Afghanistan — 8000 US Southern Border — 8200* + regular CBP * Total includes: 5200 active duty + 2000 National Guard

First why the need for troops?  We already have 2000+ on the border.  What happens if they make it to the border…..are the troops willing to shot and kill unarmed civilians?

Of course if you ask a supporter there are diseased ridden people in the midst and/or gang members with all their weapons and drugs and stuff.

This is all so fucking silly!

Then we need to have a debate on immigration…..that is about as worthless an endeavor as climate change or guns….Americans are NOT capable of having a discourse on these subjects because critical thinking has bee replaced  with personality worship and slogans and most important…HATRED!

Then there are all those “really bad people” that are in this caravan, according to Our Dear Supreme Leader, Trump….there are these bad people but they are not in the “caravan” these people are Trump and the spineless enablers….THESE ARE HOLLOW PATHETIC LITTLE PEOPLE!

  1. This ‘escalation’ was widely reported on the news here today. It seems inevitable that it will end in the deaths of some of the migrants, if tensions do not relax.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Disease ridden ? Not bullshit. High rate HIV, tuberculosis and hepatitis children and adults. Far too many kids never had baby shots. Few have any medical records. I know. Teacher Miami Dade schools 33 years. Kids cannot enter school without all immunizations. Who pays for all the medical services needed ? Immigrants legal and illegal have no health insurance. The ERs are packed.

    1. I believe the last reported small pox case was in Ethiopia……this scare tactic is nothing new as a matter of fact several years ago it was hidden jihadist coming across the border with leprosy….all sacre no fact….with my broken leg and amputation I have spent a lot of time in my local ER and have not seen one of these “freeloaders” that everyone fears…and yes there is a large community of Hispanics here…..chuq

    1. It is women and children and I do not fear unarmed women….but then I am an American that is not afraid of unarmed women…..I leave that to the spineless…chuq

      1. It is unarmed women and children that will require food, medicine, education and jobs which you will pay for in higher and higher taxes and the more we tolerate this kind of stuff the higher the bill will become. How much can YOU afford? How soon will this kind of stuff cause the government to eat away everything you have left in your social security and medicare or whatever, all of it having been given to these welfare seekers who have no greater intent than to live off your earned income and all the work you have done all your life.?

      1. Would justify somebody in washington doing something to save us from what will happen if this kind of crap isn’t stopped.

      2. There will be no massive invasion as much as you would like to see one…..this is all for the election…and will not be a thing like those jihadis that were sneaking across the border to spread leprosy…..chuq

  3. I think we will worldwide have to deal with all the poor people. They are coming from countries forced by our governments to hold them down. Now we will see something like a “payback”. We can not let them die. The world community have to help them, and reduce their military acivities. Michael

  4. This is a terrible, heart breaking situation. I pray for a humane and reasonable response and solution. I do not believe in open borders. Few people do. There will always be poor and desperate people seeking a safe haven in U.S. We must be discerning, wise and just. Yes we will have to turn some of them away, but all? No. I find it despicable that there are those who demonize these mostly hardworking people. What bothers me most are the people who profess to be Christians, who lead the ravenous pack attacking these desperate, vulnerable people seeking not only a better life, but who are often seeking life itself. To these hypocrites I say, “think what you wish, react with all the vitriol and prejudice you can muster,” but don’t mention Christ or Christianity to me. You are repulsive blasphemers.

  5. One theory is that people in Central America are suffering from food shortgages due to climate change., and the food shortage is driving the migrations. This will be an increasing worldwide problem in the future as things get worse.

    I agree we need to talk procedures to end our current policy which is basically a policy of open borders. If an alien gets across the border they are here for life. That is not a sustainable or sane policy.

    1. I believe all sane people know that we need immigration reform….but that is where it stops…few are willing to do the work it is easier to use them as pawns in a rush to an election….chuq
