I am not anti-immigration, and I am certainly not anti-immigrant, but Trump Hate is clouding the position that the media and the Democrats are taking on the Central American “immigrant caravan” and the resulting border crisis.
The position of the Left is going to empower Trump and his supporters. This is the primary issue he ran on in 2016, and he did it by creating ominous visuals of a crisis that didn’t then exist. Now it’s real, and it’s spectacular.
Seventy-five hundred immigrants are attempting to enter California and require the State of California and the United States government to house and feed them while they await the outcome of their asylum claims. At the same time, California is in the midst of its own crisis of recovering from the wildfires and the threat of further damage and displacement from mudslides and other lingering effects of that disaster.
