In the weeks leading up to the midterm elections, President Donald Trump repeatedly warned Americans about the approaching caravan of thousands of Central American migrants advancing through Mexico toward the southern U.S. border.
It was a mass of people that Trump characterized as an “invasion.”
Course - Media - CNN - Jim - Acosta
Of course, the liberal media — from CNN’s Jim Acosta to Fox News’ Shepard Smith — summarily dismissed the president’s warnings, asserting that the caravan was not an “invasion” or a “threat” to American sovereignty, and that it would likely never even reach the U.S. border.
Fast-forward to a week after the election, and the first waves of the approaching caravan began to arrive in Tijuana on the Mexican side of the U.S. border, an arrival that was marked by dozens of migrants who mounted the existing fencing along the border and symbolized the very real threat that hundreds or thousands more like them could pour over the top in a massive breach of the border.
Migrants - US - Way - Journalists - Threat
Unfortunately for those migrants threatening to illegally enter the U.S. that way — as well as the liberal “journalists” who defended and dismissed the threat — Trump’s administration was keeping a watchful eye on the developments and took action shortly thereafter to mitigate that potential threat of a mass of migrants climbing over the border fence.
Trump tweeted, “The Fake News is showing old footage of people climbing over our Ocean Area Fence. This is what it really looks like — no climbers anymore under our Administration!”
Photo - Section - Border - Fence - Rows
The attached photo showed a section of the border fence that featured no less than seven rows of coiled concertina wire, a nasty and razor-sharp deterrent that covered the entirety of the U.S. side of the border fence from top to bottom.
Do you support the use of razor-sharp concertina wire to deter illegal border crossings?
