Who organized the caravan? Who is financially supporting it? These people have to be fed along the way.
Is this a politically-driven effort? After all, the current administration has already violated international law by criminalizing asylum-seekers. There have been numerous cases of those already granted still being deported. So there is zero expectation that anyone from this caravan will even get a hearing. I feel these people are being used as pawns, in a most deadly game of politics.
An unarmed group of migrants seeking asylum. I wouldn’t call that an invading force. If our response is going to be military, it would be a bloodbath of unarmed men, women and children. Looking at US history, it would be Constitutional and legal, as we have done so time and again. I would not say that it is right, though.
I have my suspicions behind whoever organized this exodus. It is organized, it is funded. And i feel we all expect this to end violently, like lambs to the slaughter. My issue isn’t with the refugees themselves. They were risking their lives when they were stuck at home. They had nothing else to lose by fleeing. But i feel that one way or another, they have become fatal pawns in our political rivalry.
This is a crisis that will showcase the WORST in America, rather than our best. I pray for a miracle of the exact opposite.
US President Donald Trump has pointed to a massive caravan of migrants trekking north through Mexico as a major issue in the upcoming midterm elections.
