Caravan Members Arrested…

Do these people still think it’s the Obama Administration where they can just hop over the border without consequence? 

Several caravan members decided to test the waters and hopped over the border. They were arrested immediately. 

As reported by washingtontimes.com

At least 30 people from the illegal immigrant caravan had already been arrested for jumping the border as of Monday morning, border sources told The Washington Times, and the government filed the first criminal charges against them later in the day.

One group included nearly 20 people, while others attempted to sneak over in smaller groups, one source said.

Agents nabbed them and confirmed they were part of the caravan that’s been traversing Mexico for more than a month.

Most of the migrants still in the caravan appear to be waiting to try to enter the country through the legal port of entry, planning to make an official asylum request. But other migrants who had concluded they were unlikely to win asylum had said they would try to jump the border between the ports of entry, hoping to elude capture.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced charges filed against 11 illegal immigrants nabbed Friday and Sunday, who were apparently part of the more than 30 captured.

Congress needs to close the loopholes allowing caravans to seek refuge in the U.S. These “‘migrants” need to stay in their country and make it great.
