The resolve of our government, our nation, and our culture overall are currently being tested at the southern border by thousands people who seem to think they will succeed by just bursting into our country, like an intruder breaking down the front door of your home while you’re watching television.
Mexico is watching. Central America is watching. The whole world is watching to see if our government, led by our president, keeps its word and secures that border.
In many ways, this parallels what we have watched happen in the past few years to Western European countries who have allowed in hundreds of thousands of “refugees” from Africa and the Middle East, only to watch their laws and their culture be rapidly eroded away by the newly arrived. The effects can be seen in Marseilles, Berlin, London, all the western European countries.
The same cultural disaster awaits our nation if our borders are not secured.
There are now reports of rock throwing at border agents. One illegal alien from Honduras was arrested in western Arizona. He was hiding in a tree, threw rocks at the agents and a helicopter, then he set the tree on fire. He had several previous arrests in Florida and had been deported from the U.S. earlier this year, on June 4. As crazy as that sounds, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has now blamed this invasion on President Trump, calling the caravan a “… political ploy of the president of the United States of America.”
The president temporarily closed the San Ysidro Port of Entry on Sunday morning, which he threatened to do last week. The Port of Entry had re-opened by Sunday afternoon, but could be closed again if the situation warrants it.
Mexican authorities have to be evaluating how closing the checkpoint and shutting down legal traffic into southern California will have devastating economic effects on the Mexican economy generally, and the Tijuana economy specifically. The salaries earned in California are spent in Mexico.
And that is the prime motivator for the Mexican government to deal with the caravan, get them away from our border and sent back to Honduras, or wherever, in Central America.
The situation is fluid. No doubt the Mexicans will respond brutally if the caravan members don’t begin heading south soon. Casualties are inevitable, unfortunately.
But should these invaders make their way into our country, the next wave will be bigger, and the one after that even bigger. In the current age of instant worldwide communication via cell phones, texting, emails, the internet, everybody who had a serious thought about coming to America illegally will be convinced they can make it.
A deterrent message must be sent worldwide, and that is why our border will be secured, whatever the cost.
No border, no nation. No law, no civilization.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
