White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed on Monday there is “evidence” that Middle Easterners have embedded themselves inside the migrant caravan marching toward the U.S.-Mexico border.
Even worse, she made it clear that the terrorist threat at the border is serious.
When a reporter asked her if President Donald Trump had “evidence” that Middle Easterners were in the migrant caravan, Sanders offered a blunt response.
"Absolutely. We have, and we know that this is a continuing problem,” Sanders said.
She then dropped another fact that makes the border crisis even more concerning.
“It's not just in this, we have 10 individuals, suspected or known, terrorists that try to enter our country illegally every day,” Sanders added.
The thousands-strong migrant caravan broke through Mexico's southern border and continued the march toward the U.S.-Mexico border over the weekend.
Trump came out guns blazing, threatening to cut foreign aid to countries that fail to stop immigrants from coming illegally to the U.S.
"Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them," Trump tweeted.
President Trump placed blame at the feet of the Democrats.
"The Caravans are a disgrace to the Democrat Party," Trump tweeted. "Change the immigration laws NOW!"
He also made it clear that "full efforts are being made to stop the onslaught of illegal aliens from crossing our Souther Border."
"People have to apply for asylum in Mexico first, and if they fail to do that, the U.S. will turn them away," Trump tweeted. The courts are asking the U.S. to do things that are not doable!"
Do you approve of President Trump's handling of the border crisis so far?
