President Trump may have spoken too soon.
This morning, Trump celebrated the Mexican government’s stopping of the human caravan of Central Americans winding their way to the U.S. border. Trump made the call that Mexico needed to take control of the situation, rather than allow a mass form of people to illegally trespass in their country.
The Mexican government did take action, deporting a few hundred of the migrants. But it looks like what Mexico did to stop the caravan will not be enough. In fact, many of the migrants are threatening to come to the U.S. anyway, whether we like it or not.
The Daily Mail reports:
Defiant Central American migrants from the sprawling human ‘caravan’ snaking north through Mexico taunted President Trump and vowed to continue their push towards the US – declaring: ‘We’ll see you soon Mr President.’
And they told DailyMail.com about the reality of what Trump called ‘the strong immigration laws of Mexico’ revealing that in fact they were being given 20 or even 30-day passes to travel freely and told to report to immigration centers, which dot the U.S. border.
Far from being ‘broken up’ as Trump claimed on Thursday morning, the caravan was being helped on its way to Mexico City with coaches which arrived not long after he tweeted.
And while Mexican officials had encouraged it to disperse, they did so by giving permits to stay in the country without asking a single question about gangs and crimes.
This issue is a stark reminder that the poor of the world need help.
However, the reality of the situation is that America must help its own poor first and stop using its limited resources fighting needless wars & funding other Countries. https://t.co/truyZpfMCz via @MailOnline

If the report is true, this is an unbelievable betrayal. Many of the migrants don’t seem to care about the rule of law in our country. They want to enter illegally, regardless of how our society is governed. Take a look at these quotes from the Daily Mail report:
‘But when it comes to it, I will cross the border. I can assure you that I’m going to get into the US, I have faith in God.’
His determination was echoed by Salvadoran national Marvin Geovanni Alvarez, 39, who lived illegally in Atlanta, Georgia, for a year before he was deported in 2013, wrenching him away from his wife Daisy, 36, and sons, Marvin, 20, and 18-year Gerardo.
‘Trump is crazy. He’s racist. The National Guard doesn’t worry me, it’s all bulls***,’ he told DailyMail.com.
‘I’ll be reunited with my family. See you soon Mr President.’
The hell we will, Alvarez. The National Guard has been deployed. It looks like they’ll have their work cut out for them.
