The caravan bringing illegal aliens to cross the border into the United States has quit the fight after President Donald Trump announced that he would use US troops to stop the invasion.
Just 24 hours before, the organizers swore they wouldn’t back down. They still have people in place to help them cross into the US illegally but the caravan members must get to the border on their own, so the danger hasn’t passed completely.
Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen announced on Wednesday that President Trump will sign an order that will move National Guard troops to the border until a wall is built.
A caravan of Central American migrants whose trek across Mexico infuriated President Donald Trump has decided not to travel to the US border, leaders said Tuesday.
“We will wrap up our work in Mexico City,” said Irineo Mujica, the head of the migrant advocacy group People Without Borders (Pueblo sin Fronteras).
“We have support teams at the border if there are people who need assistance there, but they would have to travel on their own,” he told AFP in the town of Matias Romero, in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. […]
The Republican president vowed to send the US military to secure the border and threatened to axe the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) if Mexico did not stop the caravan.
The fact that 1,200 in the caravan wanted to get into the United States in itself would not have been a big deal, but the president understood that if they had made it, the floodgates would open and there would be a new caravan every week or so. The United States is not the refugee camp for the world and invaders have no right to come here.
It not only provides an added cost burden for citizens of this country but it is also a slap in the face to those who wait and do everything by the book to get here.

Slowly but surely our open borders are closing.
