The imminent caravan of over 4000 people coming from Central America to America is a big problem. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, this last April, called the caravan “A deliberate attempt to undermine our laws and overwhelm our system.” (Migrant Caravan, After Grueling Trip, Reaches U.S. Border. Now the Really Hard Part. Kirk Semple and Miriam Jordan, New York Times, April 29, 2018)
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said of the April caravan, “This caravan, like those who have gone before, is also rightly understood as a deliberate attempt to undermine the laws of this country and the sovereignty of the United States.” (Migrant caravan remains stalled at US-Mexico border AZ Central, April 30, 2018)
Here is some info about these caravans:
According to the Wikipedia article, Central American migrant caravans,
The Viacrucis del Migrante (Way of the Cross), also known as the Central American migrant caravan, are annual migrant caravans of Central Americans organized by Pueblo Sin Fronteras (People without Borders). Viacruciscaravans have usually been organized since 2010 by the migrants themselves, who set off during Holy Week.
Here are questions with some answers:
Are caravan people being paid by Democrats to come to America? New York Times says No. No evidence. But I wonder.
When did these yearly caravans start? These caravans have been coming every year from Central America since 2010. Obama did nothing about it. And they are getting bigger every year.
Why do they come? What do they expect? Jobs. Better life. To escape poverty.
Do they know that if they are able to get past our boarder that they will be entering in illegally? I think they must know that, but since many have gotten by in the past, they disregard our laws.
Why do some people want them to come despite the fact that they will be coming illegally? The Democrats want their votes, that simple.
Besides it being illegal, what is the problem with their coming? (1) Many are criminal; (2) many are bringing drugs; (3) too many are coming in and overwhelming our system—too many to process; (4) many of them do not regard or respect our laws; some even come carrying their own countries flags.
How can we pray?
Pray for the safety of the people coming in caravans. It is a long hard journey.
Pray for the good sense of the people; that many would choose to go back to their own county, choosing rather to come in legally—and show them how to do it.
Pray for the wisdom of our government and President Trump.
Pray for the funds needed to build the southern boarder wall.
Pray for Mexico to cooperate with our government and to stop the flow of caravans, because they are illegal!
