The new migrant caravans have not received much media attention but they are moving to the border as we speak.
Look, it is a tragedy that Central America is such a disaster and while we have helped in many ways we cannot just solve the crisis by taking in all those looking for a better life.
We have laws and smart people from both sides of the aisle wrote the laws to protect our country and be humane to the less fortunate. We must enforce them.
As they Texas cops make clear, if Pelosi and the Dems don’t take this threat seriously they are prepared to act and the Dems cannot be happy with that.
Because this shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that we need some new wall built, not the zero Pelosi is offering.
Like the air traffic controllers who called in sick to end the shutdown, this may be the equivalent on the wall – desperate cops calling attention to a crisis the only way that will get through to the D.C. politicians.
From Breitbart: Police are lining up their vehicles near Eagle Pass, Texas, to help Border Patrol agents stop the illegal crossing of caravan migrants who arrived in the Mexican border town of Piedras Negras last week.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott deployed an additional Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers to the region to assist in securing the border section that has no physical barriers to prevent illegal crossings.
“Texans ask: what’s going on at Eagle Pass?” Governor Abbott tweeted. The governor’s tweet includes a photo showing a large number of DPS vehicles lined up with Border Patrol vehicles along the Rio Grande River near the border community.
DC Examiner reporter Anna Giaritelli tweeted a video showing a long line of police vehicles providing a “show of force” to warn caravan migrants from crossing illegally.
Prior to the arrival of the nearly 2,000 Central American caravan migrants last week, the Del Rio Sector already witnessed a 364 percent increase in the number of migrant families apprehended in the sector. Eagle Pass falls under the jurisdiction of the Del Rio Sector.
Texans ask: what’s going on at Eagle Pass? Below is a picture & statement showing that TX Dept. of Public Safety is on top of it. As part of our border security plan we keep DPS on the border with boats & planes. They work with local & federal authorities to enforce the law. pic.twitter.com/R4m0K11jLf
