As the first caravan gets closer to our borders, Gen James Mattis is working to prepare the perfect reception this country has always been willing to show unwelcome invaders. Long strings of razor wire, now adorn the ground along the border as active duty soldiers pour into the area.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has reported that at least 270 people with violent criminal history are in that caravan and there are three more caravans right behind them. I look for the caravan to get violent as they did against the Mexican national police. It would be a bad mistake for them to try that against our troops.
What began as one migrant caravan has now grown into four, according to a New York Times report on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the Department of Homeland Security released a report on what is known about some of the individuals in the leading caravan and the news was horrifying.
There are more than 270 known criminals and gang members in the caravan, according to the DHS report.
There is good reason for Trump to get Mattis & Co. involved in securing the border.
More than 5,000 soldiers sent to the border have been busy putting up concertina wire in anticipation of the caravans, whose journeys have been marked by violence.

U.S. Army troops, part of “Operation Faithful Patriot” arrived to the U.S. border with Mexico, deployed by President Trump ahead of midterms. Soldiers spread out barbed wire along the Rio Grande in south Texas. #immigration #border #caravanamigrante #undocumented #army pic.twitter.com/PVD6YIbCvk

#StopTheCaravan– @SaraCarterDC: President @realDonaldTrump is 100% right. We have every right to protect our border. This is a very dangerous situation, a situation that we can’t allow to get worse. That’s why he’s sending the troops to the border. #MAGA #TrumpTrain #Dobbs pic.twitter.com/l8EDVzpbKj
