The pictures I see of the caravan show many more men of military age carrying a flag that is NOT the American flag.  How do you know none of them are armed with ill intent?

The theory is that the caravan heading north is composed of asylum seekers. If asylum is offered along the way and refused, can they still be called "asylum seekers" when the arrive at our border?

They can not guard even one inch of the border as it is against the law if they do. Only the far right would not understand the law. The one thing the far right do understand is how to keep people from voting so they can steal elections. Breaking laws is something Trump and his supporters do every day. Lets hope next Tuesday the people throw out every Reb. trying to be elected, and as Oprah told the people of GA rise up and get rid of your overseers and elect an honest Dem as Gov. We even saw Jimmy Carter at 94 tell the people of GA stop being used and vote for the Dem who will be a real Govoner.

Wow - I dont know if it's because its Halloween or not - but when you throw the spaghetti against the wall & it sticks like that - it's really really scary

 

Oh my - 700 Feet Per Soldier - Alone Maybe in the Dark

 

How many feet is it from the Southern US/Mexican Border to New Hampshire

 

Are there enough Soldiers to Station them  every 700 feet all the way up here

 

Never mind

 

I think I'll Have to Vote Republican to Stop the nightmares

 

 


It is absolutely nonsensical to see the things that are posted in defense of trump sending the military there. One soldier every 700 feet is a fine example, like the immigrants are going to spread out all across our border. Oh well ......... a good laugh before bedtime.

So let's say, those unfortunate people end up having

"w-a-l-k-e-d" the last thousand miles (on foot mind you).  Let's say they actually reach that border between Mexico and the U.S.   So now they're standing in front of this amassed military fence made up of our soldierswith guns at the ready.  Then what?  What if the throng of people, out of frustration and desperation, lunge forward in order to press their way across that divide?   Are our troops on orders to shoot first and ask questions later or what?  What carnage.  How horrible.  What a terrible international incident that would be.  And then America could be on the receiving end of  human rights violation charges and  sanctions by other nations.  What a disgrace that would be.

sp362:  US laws prevent them from physically detaining anybody.  What do you expect them to do?  They can report to the Border Patrol people who are coming across, but that doesn't take anywhere near that number.  Some in aircraft and some in vehicles on the ground should suffice.  It is far less than the 15,000 who are being sent.  Why are they deploying from now?  California is still over 2,000 miles away.  The closest point is 1,000 miles and it doesn't look like they are heading there.  Even if they were, they are on foot and only moving about 20 miles a day.  The only reason for the deployment is to rile up the base.

 

 

That's very true. Trump has his base frightened silly that America is about to be invaded by hordes of horrible people who will arrive and start slaughtering them.

What we think of when we hear of the caravan:

Meanwhile the Russians are constructing sub bases all over arctic

 

The Hondurans Caravan is made up of mostly woman & children 

 

No one in the Caravan is armed

 

Every border they have crossed has been at a Port of Entry/exit

 

If the US Military can track a individual car full of bad guys in the mountains of Afghanistan - by Satellite from Phoenix Arizona

 

Who thinks they can keep track of a Caravan comprised of 5000 people
