Who/what entity organized this...at this time? What is the real story? Why should any nation accept all these people? Why didn't Mexico welcome then in....not to pass through ...but to stay in Mexico?

Apparently these caravans have been occurring for a number of years, its just that with this one Trump has decided to use it as a way of inflaming his base for the mid-terms.

Exactly. It's a narrative they can't sell to anybody but the knuckle draggers. This is where their policy of separating children from their parents, and imprisoning them in desert tent jails, is coming back to bite them.

Prosecuted for what? Cities like Portland, Ore have a huge "homeless" problem. I can't take care of the people living there. Every person that crosses our border who is not able to take care of themselves steals needed dollars from a citizen. Trump, thank the heavens puts his nation and it's needs first. It might make you "feel good" to defend unfortunate foreigners, but how many to you welcome into your home, to live and for you to support???

This is really screwing up our stability... no good can come of his success.

Take some time, read up a bit, so you can at least ask informed questions, please.

It sure would make sense to try to understand why economic conditions in Central America are so bad, and how decades of US policy toward CA have contributed to them.

It's insane that we spend hundreds of billions of dollars as well as losing thousands of US lives in regions half a world away, but we can't put together a sensible plan for our hemisphere.

How about what we have done to the Cuban people?

We are a Christian nation? LOL
