Donald Trump has said he is prepared to send as many as 15,000 troops to the US-Mexican border to head off a caravan of Central American migrants.
Just two days after announcing the deployment of 5,200 troops to the border and with the midterm elections imminent, the President held a brief presser before leaving for a campaign rally in Florida.
There has perhaps been no bigger lie detrimental to the future national security and economic well-being of the United States, than that the 14th Amendment somehow confers citizenship on the offspring of anybody who can sneak past the U.S. Border Patrol.
The President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, finds it necessary, through executive order, to reaffirm the meaning and intent of our nation’s founding documents, specifically the Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution.
Consider how far down the path of ignorance and indoctrination this country has traveled.
The caravan making its way through various parts of Central America to the U.S. border has swelled to around 14,000 people, according to a major Mexican newspaper. This staggering statistic, and even more conservative estimates, would render the mass of migrants larger than many American towns and communities, according to a review of U.S. census data.
As many as 5,200 U.S. troops will deploy to the southern border to bolster U.S. border enforcement activity as a caravan of would be illegal immigrants is making their way north, General Terrence O’Shaughnessy announced Monday.
A second migrant caravan, believed to be armed with bombs and guns, crossed into Mexico on Monday despite a huge police presence.
Hundreds of migrants following in the footsteps of the first caravan heading to the U.S. border crossed a river from Guatemala.
A low-flying police helicopter hovered overhead as the migrants waded in large groups through the Suchiate River’s murky waters, apparently trying to use the downdraft from its rotors to discourage them.
In the 1960s, an informed but naïve undergraduate, I was walking across the campus of the University of Pennsylvania with the Chairman of the Chemistry Department, Prof. Charles C. Price. He told me that he was president of the United World Federalists, and asked if I knew what that organization was.
