Posted on 10/22/2018 6:21:20 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
Democrats are struggling to respond to President Trump and his Republican allies, who are casting the caravan of thousands of migrants headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border as a failure of Democrats to help enact immigration policy in the GOP-controlled Congress.
Some Democrats said Trump is vulnerable to a counterattack on his core campaign issue given that his policies failed to reduce the number of unauthorized immigrants. Yet party leaders and Democratic candidates have largely been silent ahead of the midterm elections, refusing to engage with Trump.
The Democratic and Republican strategies reflect the path each party has charted with two weeks till Nov. 6. Republicans are hoping to retain their Senate majority and limit losses in the House by playing on fears of migrants pouring into the country to rally conservatives, a strategy that helped propel Trump to the presidency in 2016.
Democrats, deeply divided on immigration, are trying to maintain a laserlike focus on health care and the GOP threat to protections for people with preexisting medical conditions, envisioning that as the issue that will determine control of Congress.
On Monday, Trump launched a fresh attempt to deflect blame for the more than 5,000 migrants from Honduras who were making their way north through Mexico. The president and his top aides say the rising number of Central Americans attempting to enter the United States without authorization presents a winning campaign issue, by showing Trump is right to call for stronger border control.

Well these people will have to be stopped in Mexico otherwise they can come in so we will need to invade Mexico.
More than 5000 you say? Lies and more lies from the Compost. They know that number is 12 to 14,000 and growing by the minute.
That’s NOT a ‘migrant caravan’ or a ‘humanitarian crisis’, much as the media and the SJWs would like us to believe. History teaches us that any time a group that large is advancing upon another nation’s borders, they are, by definition, an ARMY.
“Hey fellow Rats, I got an idea. Get Soros to round up military age men, sprinkled with women and babies, to rush the US border. Then when Drumpf’s evil soldiers shoot at them, voters will vote for us!” — Stupid Dem strategists
From the ComPost?!? Weird. The reason for the latest DNC talking point -- about the ComPosts's own Jamal Khashoggi -- was to change the subject from the downward spiral of the Tidy Bowl Wave, down, down, down the memory hole, and the astroturf illegals. So, the ComPost will concentrate their coverage on how **** the Demwits' election chances are.
I think the invasion caravan might actually help us on Election Day. Im sure that like Kavanaugh its meant to do the opposite but... how many voters are feeling positive about this?
It’s already over 100,000. The presstitutes will report a larger and large number each day to build drama.

Five myths about the Honduran caravan debunked
Idiot Democrats are indeed struggling with this issue. I went to the DUmp today just to see what their take on it is. And yes I took a shower afterward. They basically are blasting Trump for withholding aid to those countries like Honduras who are sending these invaders. But the invasion itself?
Crickets. They have nothing to say about that. And what can they say? They know it would be a political and economic disaster just as anybody else. But they wont admit it.
People with pre-existing medical conditions (what the f is pre-existing?? It exists, or it doesnt. It never pre-existed) are MORE susceptible to typhus and other diseases the illegals bring.
The Abolish Ice and sanctuary city people are upset? F them.
100,000? I dont think so. I think you are way off the actual target there. And the press will not even admit to such a number. Even today they are reporting 4000 and 5000. So as to keep this from blowing up as a national critical issue.
This whole issue has been staged, organized, and orchestrated by communist money and aided by Democrat stupidity in bucking Trumps reform efforts.
These people are being manipulated by subversives promising them mountains of free stuff like welfare, free medical care, food stamps, and a better life. Unfortunately, they arent going to find it here.
The WashPost is unable to tell us WHO is paying for the caravan?
Pre-existing means the condition existed before the insurance policy was issued.
That is the entire idea about insurance. A person pays into the insurance fund when they are healthy so that they are covered when they get sick or have an accident.
You do not need insurance if you can sign up for it after you get hurt or get sick.
When you can do that, you only need pay premiums after you get hurt, then stop paying premiums as soon as you are cured.
All insurance companies go broke shortly after that, because there would not be any need for insurance.
I think their primary is “Nuh-uhhhh!”
