Second migrant caravan gathering in Guatemala, report says
A second migrant caravan is forming at the Honduran border and is expected to follow the larger caravan of more than 7,000 from Central America towards the U.S.-Mexico border, The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.

Guatemalan authorities on Sunday estimated the new group -- which gathered in a Guatemalan city near the border of Honduras -- to be at 1,000. But the group appears to be growing. The Journal, citing estimates from church-run charities and activists, reported that the group is now made up of about 2,500.

The new caravan reportedly plans to follow in the footsteps of the larger group, who passed through the southern Mexico border over the weekend.
Yes, a success, a flaming success....

New Poll: Voters Want the Caravan Invasion Stopped at the Border

Yesterday President Trump officially announced he is proceeding with foreign aid cuts to governments that have failed to stop the illegal, 7000 person strong "caravan" from moving north to the United States.
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.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2018
Now, a new poll shows the majority want the caravan stopped if it reaches the U.S. southern border with Mexico.
Voters agree with President Trump’s efforts to stop the horde of Hondurans marching through Mexico from entering the United States illegally.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the U.S. government should stop all the Hondurans headed this way from entering the country. Thirty-eight percent (38%) disagree and say the government should allow them to enter temporarily until each of their cases can be individually reviewed.
...
....In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 18, 2018
Going to see if I can find the actual poll....

Hey Gnome, have you seen a single Democrat politician come out and say the caravan must not be allowed to enter the USA?

There are hundreds of millions of poor people. If we let them in we will be poor too. And this helps how exactly?

Going to see if I can find the actual poll....
Actual Poll: Voters Say Government Should Stop Hondurans At the Border
...
Eighty percent (80%) of all voters have been closely following news reports about the Honduran group that is coming here illegally, with 46% who are following Very Closely. By comparison, 88% were closely following news reports about the Senate confirmation hearings of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, with 66% who were following Very Closely.

Among voters following news reports about the Honduran caravan Very Closely, 61% think they all should be stopped.
...
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on October 21-22, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Voters continue to believe illegal immigration is a major problem, and few feel the government is doing enough to handle it.

Seventy-nine percent (79%) of Republicans and 53% of voters not affiliated with either major political party say the government should stop all of the Hondurans. Sixty-four percent (64%) of Democrats think they should be allowed in temporarily until their cases are reviewed.
Okay Donald...you're on!

The flip side of this is that if the USA is really as bad as the lefties think, isn't it our duty to prevent exploitable people from entering?

Just happened to flag a ride from a flat-bed truck that just happened to be going our way!

It embodies the "astro-turf" nature of this "caravan."
