Army of more than 1,000 Central Americans fleeing violence and unrest march unchallenged through Mexico towards the US border
Mexico needs to stop these refuges from entering their southern border in the first place. Failing to do so and by allowing them safe passage to challenge our borders should bear repercussions. This is not acceptable. While I favor DACA this is not OK. I've often said allowing too many on a boat will sink it. They must be stopped even if it requires troops to do so.
There are already a bunch of unsavory traffickers we know who profit by bringing pregnant women from Russia and elsewhere to give birth here. Thus allowing their children to become U.S. citizens. We don't need this BS. I'm all for compassion but this is far from acceptable. Compassion is not to be made a fool of by those who wish to exploit our good intentions. By no means should we mete out our compassion based upon threats when we choose not to do so in certain instances.
Their intention is to use social media to gain three or four thousand more as they continue to march towards us. Even if there were five thousand I'm confident we don't need a wall. I bet between rubber bullets, sonic repellers, tear gas, smoke bombs, water cannons flash bangs and batons our law enforcement would be able to handle them.
Sad thing is this will reinforce Trump's ill will towards those wishing to come here and those already here who will suffer because of it. However be that as it may we simply can't allow those unwilling to fight for themselves in their own country to come here and force their way into ours. Americans have fought hard and long for what we have. This they must do the same for theirs. There's only so much empathy I have for their suffering. I don't want the United States to become the military policemen of the world. Neither should these people. Nor do I want to become the world's dumping ground for everyone in the world who has a problem with their government.
I like to think of myself as open minded. But liberalism is not a fool to be taken advantage of. These people marching towards our border seem to believe everyone who is progressive is not in support of a strong military to sustain our way of life. In that they are very much mistaken. Trump needs to stop this invasion at our border by whatever means it takes.
