At this very moment, there are thousands of men, women, and children, from Central America making a two thousand mile hike from their native countries to the Texas border. Together they form an “immigrant caravan.” The main reason for the immigrant caravan is due to dangerous conditions within their own countries. Most of the immigrants, if they stay in their native countries, are subject to violence and possible death.Many of the immigrants in the caravan are pressured to join gangs within their own country, or suffer the alternative. As the massive group continues their journey, the number has begun to fall, because of dehydration, hunger, and exhaustion. Last checked, the caravan still has approximately 1,500 miles left in their walk.

To make matters worse, President Trump, after learning about the caravan, has chosen to blast this group on social media. Trump places the blame on the Mexican police and army for not stopping the caravan. He even threatened to cut ties with Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador, since they allowed the caravan out of their countries. “Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them,” Trump tweeted Monday. Trump has also decided to place some of the blame on Democrats. “Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws! Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally,” tweeted Trump following the tweets about revoking aid.

After failing to stop the caravan, federal officials told immigrants that the easiest way to stay in the country would be to apply for asylum. Although, when asked, many in the group said that they believed it to be a scam for deportation. As the immigrants get closer to the U.S. border, most Americans living along the U.S. – Mexican border will anxiously await the outcome of this dilemma.
