Why The Migrant Caravan Is More Like A Dangerous Invading Army

I want to preface this by saying that other than the American Indians every single one of us is a descendant of an immigrant. I am not against immigration, but coming here is NOT an entitlement. It is NOT a right. If you want to live in this country, you better be darned sure you do it the legal way, or are allowed here as a refugee due to dire circumstances in your homeland- like the persecuted Jews in Nazi Germany (many of whom were tragically turned away), or Christians in ISIS riddled lands.  Running away from poverty and crime doesn't cut it. I feel for them, I do. I have plenty of empathy, in spite of what liberals might think of those of us who oppose this. But we have a terrible problem with crime and poverty right here in the USA, and we need to tackle that before we allow thousands upon thousands of migrants to cross over our border to add to that burden.

So we currently have an ever increasing army of migrants marching towards the U.S. Yes, I call it an "army" because that's what it appears to be. The media, bleeding-heart liberals, and immigration activists are calling it a caravan, but this caravan is marching towards our country waving flags- and not the Stars and Stripes- their country's flag. And some have even burned our flag. Way to endear Americans to your cause.

Tearing down walls with a fierce sense of entitlement.

Claiming: "To emigrate is not a crime. We are free. Without borders."

Yes, it is a crime if you are trying to cross a border, uninvited, without legal documents. And no, you are not free to emigrate to any country you choose without proper documents. Countries have borders, even yours.

I've also noticed that the bulk of the trekkers in the videos and photos I've seen are young men- how many of these are criminals, drug dealers, and even terrorists? Guatemala's president Morales told attendees at the 2nd Conference on Prosperity and Security in Central America that they had apprehended and deported almost 100 ISIS-affiliated terrorists. How easy it would be to take advantage of this horde of humanity making its way here by foot, truck, and bus and tag along. We don't know for sure, but what if?  It's not like we haven't apprehended terrorists at our border before.
PBS's Frontline writes about how easy it is for a terrorist to obtain a fake passport and enter a country as an asylum seeker. In fact, some Bangladeshis were detained, although there was no mention as to whether they were tagged as terrorists. And we certainly don't need any more criminals. And I can guarantee there are criminals in that throng.

There are now 7,000 and counting, and no doubt there will be more. And you know they have to be getting help from somewhere. Some think Soros. I don't know. There's no proof. But there have been videos floating around the Twittersphere of people handing over money to the migrants. And the timing is mind-blowing. Just ahead of the mid-terms and this happens? It smacks of U.S. liberal politics and Latin leftist activism. Take Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who is lobbying to become the next president of Mexico. He recently said:

“Soon, very soon, after the victory of our movement, we will defend migrants all over the American continent and the migrants of the world who, by necessity, must abandon their towns to find life in the United States,” Lopez Obrador said during a rally in the Mexican city of Culiacán, reports.
“It’s a human right we will defend,” he added. 
Say what?! Uh, no it's not, and no you won't! Problem is- they vote next July, and he could win. He's very popular. Without help from the Mexicans we could be in for some scary times ahead.

DailyMail has a bunch of photos of the migrants here.
