President Donald Trump has been adamant that he does not want the members of the Central American migrant caravan entering our country due to the “element” that lurks within it.
Recently, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) confirmed his concerns, stating there are “individuals within the caravan who are gang members or have significant criminal histories.”

National Security Issue
While liberals around the globe all want the entire caravan to cross over the U.S. border, our president has not exactly sent out a welcome mat — and for good reason.
Trump, along with most people that have common sense, believe there will be criminals mixed in with those actually hoping for a better life.
There may even be terrorists hoping to infiltrate our country and carry out nefarious plans.
That being the case, there simply is no way we can allow this group of over 7,000 people to enter our country.
Sadly, we have yet to hear any condemnation by Democrats over the security issues of the caravan.
Rather than worry about protecting the United States and its citizens, they are leaving it up to the Republicans to play the bad guys here.
The timing of the caravan could not be more suspect.
Considering that midterm elections are just two weeks away, it is rather convenient that one of the most hotly debated topics of this administration is being thrust into the headlines again.
Not so shockingly, our own vice president stated that the president of Honduras reached out to let him know there were left-wing groups in Venezuela that were actually financing the caravan.
If those reports are actually true, Democrats will be upset to know the stunt is starting to backfire against them.
Citizens on both sides of the aisle are sick and tired of our immigration laws being violated without repercussion.
With the country finally headed down the right track, they don’t want any of that put at risk over the country being flooded by undocumented immigrants.
And make no mistake about it, if this group of migrants is able to cross our borders unchecked, the floodgates will open and we will literally be overrun.
