Just In: Secretary State Mike Pompeo Drops The Guantlet On The Caravan – Says They May Not “Successfully” Enter Country ‘No Matter What’

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just crystal clear for the Caravan, they will not be allowed in the United States “no matter what.”

From washingtonexaminer.com

A migrant caravan traveling from Central America through Mexico will not be permitted to enter the United States, the top American diplomat pledged in “a message” for “this caravan or any caravan which follows.”

“You will not be successful in getting into the United States illegally, no matter what,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday. “I repeat: the caravan will not cross our border into our southern states under any circumstances.”

Pompeo has been working with the Mexican government and the United Nations agency responsible for refugees to arrange for the migrants to be stopped before they reach the Rio Grande. He challenged criticism that the Trump administration has taken a harsh line with refugees by lowering the number of annual admissions, but also defended a zero-tolerance policy for the current caravan.

“We are determined that illegal entry into the United States from this caravan will not be possible,” he said.
