Trump Goes More Bonkers Over the Migrant Caravan: New at Reason



As the midterms approach, President Donald Trump's rabble rousing about the approaching migrant caravan is reaching a fevered pitch. This morning he shotAsylum Seekers off two tweets calculated to strike fear in the hearts of Americans. "We will NOT let these Caravans, which are also made up of some very bad thugs and gang members, into the U.S. Our Border is sacred, must come in legally. TURN AROUND!"


Actually, coming to the U.S. border and requesting asylum is very legal. What's illegal is what Trump is doing: deploying the military to shoo(t) them away before they can request an asylum hearing.


The notion that the caravan consist of thugs and gang members rather than their victims is obscene. But what is even more obscene, notes Reason Foundation Senior Analyst Shikha Dalmia, is that American policy has contributed mightily to creating the "thugs" and "gangs" that these migrants are trying to flee.


The only decent thing for America to do would be to take responsibility and roll out the welcome mat just as it did for the boat people fleeing war-ravaged Vietnam.
