Migrant caravans swell to 12,000, get some help along the way
Fox News ^ | Nov. 4, 2018 | William La Jeunesse

In the small town of Veracruz, Mexico, at a gas station and truck stop, two nuns began stopping big rigs Sunday to fill the trailers with waiting migrants from the caravan.

The caravan is trying to make 116 miles, a record for them, considering the first day walking in Mexico they traveled just 20 miles.

The Catholic nuns at the scene are from Guadalajara’s Misioneras de Christo Resuscitado, and as a big red 18-wheeler approached, they flagged down the driver, stepped on the running board on the passenger side and spoke for about 5 minutes. The driver then gave a reluctant wave of the hand, one of the nuns spoke and dozens of young men ran to the rear to open the two tall metal doors.

An organizer appeared with a bullhorn, and loaded dozens of women and children and strollers inside. As soon as that truck left, with one door tied open, another approached. And again the nuns convinced him to fill his empty trailer with migrants.

"Both the mayor of Cordoba and the governor of Veracruz tried to provide the caravan with buses, but were told by federal officials they could be prosecuted for human trafficking, so they withdrew the offer."

Why isn't the Mexican government stopping the trucks and charging drivers with "human trafficking"?

Trump should stop all trade with Mexico until the invasion is stopped.

Why aren’t they throwing the nuns in jail for aiding and abetting?

Walk them across the border single file into buses to planes into the air and right back home.

I think some shock and awe are in order to teach Mexico and illegals a lesson.

Unless the nuns handed them a bunch of cash, they can't afford the fuel for the trip, plus lost work and maybe lost job. They will give them a ride to wherever they are picking up their next load.

Because Mexico hates our guts and wants these people out of their country so they can destroy ours. I hate these people because they've screwed up the countries God gave them and rather than fix them they feel that somehow the American taxpayer ‘’owes’’ them to make up for their deficiencies and that they have some God given right to ignore our laws, our sovereignty and our borders because it's their ‘’human right’’ to do so.

I will go a little bit further. Stop ALL, and I repeat ALL, traffic, mail, vehicles, planes, ships, trains, etc. going from the USA into Mexico. Allow foot traffic from the USA into Mexico so the illegals here can go home but nothing, and I mean nothing from Mexico into the USA.

Separate them into two or more groups.

Hondurans get flown to Roatan Juan Manuel Galvez Airport and herded off the back of our USAF cargo planes.

Guatemalans get dumped off at San Jose Airport. Same routine, herded down the back ramp.

Any Rags get GITMO.

I thank these people for doing this right before the elections. This will flip numerous people undecided to vote RED and "wave" good-bye to the blue.

Governments are instituted by God to restrain evil. Christians therefore must obey the law if it does not run counter to God. These Nuns are encouraging these people to break the law. Like their Pope, they apparently don’t read their Bibles.

According to my measurements, the CRIMINAL invaders are still about 560 miles from the border. The headline of this thread indicates the invaders have swelled to 12,000 folks. I doubt there’s enough 18 wheelers in Mexico to transport that many people.

I reckon they MAY be here in time for Thanksgiving.
