President Donald Trump defended Wednesday his decision to send the military to the border in response to the migrant caravan headed for the United States.
“It’s very important,” Trump said. “We have to have a wall of people —very highly trained people, terrific, dedicated patriots.” Breitbart Reports
“The caravan’s are actually mostly young men, and a lot of rough people … they are pushing the women right up to the front — not good — and the kids right up to the front. They can’t invade our country. You look at that it almost looks like an invasion.” ~ President Trump
That comment was significant, because the 14th Amendment reads: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.”
“Illegal aliens are not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States,” Trump said to applause at Wednesday’s rally, to chants of “U-S-A!”
JONATHAN KARL: Okay, you’re talking about 10,000, maybe 15,000, active-duty U.S. military to the border –-
DONALD TRUMP: Yeah.
JONATHAN KARL: — more than we have fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan. More than we have fighting ISIS in Syria. You’re really going to do that?
DONALD TRUMP: It’s very important. We have to have a wall of people –- very highly trained people, terrific, dedicated patriots. That’s what they are. You have caravans coming up that look a lot larger than it’s reported actually. I’m pretty good at estimating crowd size. And I’ll tell you they look a lot bigger than people would think. So we’ll find out. They had a very rough one just formed in El Salvador if you can believe it. And it was very nasty, you saw what took place. And you look at what’s coming up through Honduras through Mexico. And Mexico is helping us. But these are rough people in those crowds. And Mexico suffered a lot of damage in the last skirmish.
JONATHAN KARL: But they’re 900 miles away. The active duty military –- you know the law. You’re the president –- they can’t arrest people crossing the border –-
DONALD TRUMP: Well it depends, it depends.
JONATHAN KARL: No, they’re not allowed to —
DONALD TRUMP: National emergency covers a lot of territory. They can’t invade our country. You look at that it almost looks like an invasion. It’s almost does look like an invasion –-
JONATHAN KARL: You think those caravans are an invasion?
DONALD TRUMP: I do think so. When you look at some of them, when you look at some of the people in them, yeah, I think it can be considered an invasion. We can’t have it. We can’t have it from a cost standpoint.
There you have it, the blunt truth that the President called this an invasion of illegals at our southern border, you cannot be any clearer on that.
