The Caravan(s)

297 posts in this topic

from the Washington Post:

In a statement, Minister of Justice and Public Security Mauricio Landaverde emphasized that “mobility is a reality and a right.”

Salvadoran 'President' Salvador Sánchez Cerén has rejected Trump’s demands to prevent migrants from leaving....“For us, migrating is a right, and so migrants’ rights have to be respected,” Sánchez Cerén said at a news conference.

Upon hearing rumors of the caravan in El Salvador, the Salvadoran Ministry of Justice and Security dispatched police to patrol the perimeter of the plaza where migrants gathered Sunday morning....Stunningly the measures were 'to 'ENSURE THE SAFE PASSAGE' of the people rather than hinder their journey, according to a ministry spokesman.

If these good people want to become Americans, they need to learn English, learn our history, and learn our culture. Preferebly, this would be sanctioned by the U.S. military.

Otherwise, this is nothing other than an invasion, and I hope Trump is serious about sending troops to the border, and building the wall.

Apparently by law they need to seek asylum in the first country they enter, which is Mexico. They're allegedly refusing to do so. 

I wonder if Trump will use that as the reason for denying them admission and consideration for asylum.

It's obvious to anyone with half a brain their intention is to come here and stay.

No.  If these people really want to become Americans.  They should wait in line at the consulate El Salvador.  Fill out the proper paperwork.  Have the proper background checks done on them.  Get the proper immunizations.  And wait like the thousands of others across the globe that are hoping to get into the US legally.

And of course the El Salvadorian government wishes them well on their journey.  A few thousand less deadbeats that they have to worry about.

We should trade them even up for a few thousand of our deadbeats. Lets start with Washington DC

if reports are accurate, the first caravan won't arrive until early december. they have a lot of mileage to cover and they're mostly on foot.

fwiw.

It’s all bullshit.  It’s not a crisis.  Hardly any of these people will end up getting close to the United States.  I doubt any of them are allowed to enter. 

I read a few days ago that Mexico is offering all of them asylum if they turn themselves over.  I’d suspect a decent number of them will accept that.  Even if there are those who decide to press on (and who will fail)

Lol.  Some of you guys swear the Visigoths are coming.  An “invasion”.   Oh brother.  Looks like good old Donnie and Fox News have ammo for the next 2 weeks. 

 

So, two things ...

1)  The definition of invasion actually fits.  "an incursion by a large number of people or things into a place or sphere of activity."  Or, "an unwelcome intrusion into another's domain."

2)  I think a lot of people a missing what using the word invasion allows the President to do on this from a constitutional standpoint.  It's actually a smart play.  Slimy ... but smart.

Why is it the US' responsibility to take care of the rest of the world's messes?

Probably because we contributed to Facking up their home country.

I get that the dictionary definition of invasion is accurate.  They use words like invasion because of the frightening and negative connotations.  On a lot of levels it’s pretty dishonest. 

You bring up an interesting point about the use of the word.  Anyway, it’s not a national security crisis.

We may be partially to blame for some of these Central American basket cases (Guatemala comes to mind), but a lot of them are also full of corruption.

I’m sure Donald is in some situation room right now very urgently studying what can be done to protect the United States from these destitute women and children.  

He’s deeply, deeply concerned that a bunch of people looking to be baby sitters or day laborers will severely harm the American way of life.
