The migrant caravan is still America’s biggest concern at the moment. We have been pretty busy discussing the problem of the crazy person who sent explosive devices to top Democrats, but these migrants are still making their way to the United States.
Liberals are too vocal in their support of migrants, and they even believe that these people have the right to enter the country. Democrats may be worried about all the migrants who intend to cross the southern border with Mexico before the midterms, but they are also using this issue to score points.
Democrats are using the problem to convince people that they are working on a borderless society and unlimited immigration.
These are refugees using legal routes to seek & apply for asylum.
At this point, if you are an outlet adopting the President’s language to describe this as a “caravan,” you‘re playing yourself. And letting him play you. https://t.co/RfUL0d6Owy

The incoming leader of the House socialist caucus Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacked media members for using the word “caravan” and defending the “legal” rights of “refugees” to seek a better life in the US.
Ocasio-Cortez also engaged in a dog whistle trope that President Trump actually encourages “white supremacist” violence.
“These are refugees using legal routes to seek & apply for asylum. At this point, if you are an outlet adopting the President’s language to describe this as a ‘caravan,’ you‘re playing yourself. And letting him play you,” she tweeted.
“Are journalists who actually cover immigration even writing these stories? These are serious errors w/ major implications. Repeating Trump’s rhetoric without fact-check is completely irresponsible, especially in a time of rising white supremacist violence,” Ocasio-Cortes wrote on Twitter.
Breitbart also reported on her comments regarding caravan migrants.
“Socialist Democrat candidate for Congress Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York’s 14th District says the caravan of between 7,000 and 10,000 migrants is comprised of ‘refugees’ who have a right to claim and seek asylum in the United States. Ocasio-Cortez, who has led the Democrat Party’s ‘abolish ICE’ movement, said the migrant caravan headed to the U.S.-Mexico border in order to overwhelm the country’s asylum and immigration system should not be referred to as a “caravan,” but rather as a group of ‘refugees’ who have a legal right to enter the country,” Breitbart reported.
“These are refugees using legal routes to seek & apply for asylum. At this point, if you are an outlet adopting the president’s language to describe this as a ‘caravan,’ you‘re playing yourself. And letting him play you,” Ocasio-Cortez said of the migrant caravan.
