The asylum caravan or should we say invasion force is on our southern border. The president of the U.S. and the mayor of Tijuana describe them as mobs seeking the eternal gravy train in America. The hordes are currently massing for the upcoming big break through at the border.

These people are not like the people who came west to find land to farm and start business. There was no welfare or government handout of money just the land if you could conquer it. These people at the border are headed toward the welfare offices of the stupid gringos because everything is free in America.

One wave of immigrants were called the “Dreamers” They were just looking for a chance but a study by Harvard University showed that 74 percent of them are now on welfare and essentially wards of the state, so much for opportunity.

Where did these people come from and how did they make it so far? Let say 5,000 people, think of the logistics maybe a gallon of water each a day, 5000 gallons of water, where did that come from and the food, tons of it. Also 3,000 miles on foot maybe 40 miles a day that about 75 days although I saw some of them get rides but still that was a fast journey. It was nice that they had a medical crew with them as you might think some of the people might have gotten blisters from the fast pace.

Looking at some of the pictures I did see buses and trucks helping some but for 5,000 people that is about 125 bus loads. Who paid for all of this? Makes you wonder when it also appeared to be people directing the whole event with black tee shirts and some kind of pull over to identify them.

Looking at the caravaners waving the flag of their country it didn’t seem much like they were desperate to escape which makes you wonder why they are coming north. Do you think it might be the free stuff in the United States? Of course all the free stuff is for the people who claim asylum. The Section 8 housing, the EBT cards, free college scholarships in many states and Mass Health benefits and let’s not kid ourselves the vast majority of these people will end up on the dole, as they have almost no skills and most do not speak English.

The good news is that they will soon be able to vote Democratic so they can protect their handouts, just like the millions who preceded them to the Land of the Free Stuff. They can even live in sanctuary cities so they can get away with crimes. Makes you wonder, where do the working classes of America go to get “asylum” from the foreign criminals who have already crossed our border or will cross with this group. Of course, not all the invaders participating will want to commit crimes. But some just commit crimes because that is the life they know and they know nothing will happen here so they continue.

Consider Luis Rodrigo Perez, a Dreamer, age 23, illegal immigrant from Mexico. His dream was to murder Americans, and this month he has succeeded beyond his wildest dreams, thanks to the fact that New Jersey refused to hold him on an ICE detainer when he was jailed on domestic violence charges.

Not only did New Jersey Democrats not honor the feds’ detainer, they didn’t even tell ICE when they cut him loose. Days later, the career criminal was in Springfield, Mo., accused of murdering three Americans. Two were heard begging for their lives. He allegedly wounded two others before finally being collared.

America wasn’t always like this. Once we were a sovereign nation. We had borders, and everyone had to obey the law, not just taxpayers, citizens and legal immigrants. But something happened Fifty-five years ago when John F. Kennedy was buried and Lynden Johnson took over. Eighteen months later, at the beh est of Ted Kennedy, the Democrats passed the Immigration Reform Act of 1965. The floodgates then opened, and now the Democrats support ever more illegal immigration.
