We have no idea who these people are. The migrant caravan is sure to have ISIS fighters, MS-13 gang members and people with exotic diseases, not to mention the financial strain they will cause as they leech off our welfare system. When the migrant caravan makes it to the border, the MSM is going to try and crucify President Trump with stories of “babies being ripped from their mother’s arms.” Just watch.
The director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies Jessica Vaughan offered her four suggestions to President Trump and his administration on how to solve our border crisis caused by the huge stream of migrant caravans seeking entry into the U.S. via Mexico.

Vaughan offered her remarks in a Friday interview with Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight.
1 – Close the Border
Vaughan said the executive branch “needs to do something in the short-term,” including consideration of shutting down crossings through the U.S.-Mexico border.
Vaughan stated, “If it gets to the point where [caravan migrants] get to the U.S. border in a group like that, which they may not, they could be broken up. Some of them are going to get to the U.S. border, for sure, because there’s just no way Mexico is going to find all those people who busted through that fence … and they may not come as a caravan, they’ll just try to cross illegally.”
Vaughan recalled how the U.S. essentially shut down the southern border in 1985 after Mexican drug cartel criminals murdered Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent.
Vaughan remarked, “But if they come as a group we could shut down a border crossing or shut down a part of the border. It’s been done before in order to shut down drug trafficking and make a statement. When a DEA agent was killed in Mexico, we shut down the order to make a statement. … It could be done. … That might be what it comes to, and I don’t think Mexico wants to see that.”
2 – Refuse Bogus Asylum Claims
Mansour noted the economic reasons for caravaning migrants seeking entry to the U.S.: “The media is not even trying to pretend that these people are fleeing for anything other than economic reasons.”
News media outlets such as the New York Times and Washington Post have described caravaning migrants’ motivations for seeking entry to the U.S. as economic.
Vaughan described the openly stated economic motivations of the caravaning migrants as “[making] it harder to justify allowing these people to set foot in the United States.”
Vaughan recalled how left-wing lawyers had previously coached foreigners — providing them specific scripts to recite before border security and immigration officials — on how best to enter America via existing refugee and asylum laws and policies.
We really don’t need an immigration expert to tell us what should be done at the border just ask the American people they know what should be done.
