The very size of it may well be having the reverse effect as intended:
"Republicans See Boost From Migrant Caravan Before Midterm Elections — While Democrats Continue To Avoid The Issue
Republicans believe their opposition to the migrant caravan filled with thousands of illegal immigrants who are approaching the U.S. border will help energize their base before the Nov. 6 midterm elections, while many Democrats have continued to remain silent on the issue.
The caravan, which was roughly 2,000 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border near Tijuana and about 800 miles from the southern tip of Texas as of Thursday, has been a key issue for Republicans less than one week out from the midterm elections, as GOP candidates have been hammering their Democratic opponents for not mentioning the potential threat to the U.S.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) and Republican strategists have all echoed similar messages, saying the migrant caravan would indeed help the GOP before the midterm elections — many saying it reminds voters that Democrats are putting U.S. citizens in danger. They also mentioned how the silence from Democrats on the issue will end up helping Republicans, who have so vocally denounced the caravan entering the country."
Looks like whatever happens at the border, it will happen after the election, but the effect could be felt this Tuesday.
Hey, speaking of stupid, here's an extra layer of it!
"Pro-migration lawyers have recruited several Honduran caravan migrants to demand judges block President Donald Trump’s asylum reforms, due for release next week.
The Nov. 1 lawsuit admits that the migrants are not in the United States, but are “travelling [sic] by foot to the United States to seek asylum.”
The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and is so rushed that it targets Thomas Homan, the retired former acting Director of ICE. “Defendant Thomas Homan is sued in his official capacity as the Director of ICE,” the lawsuit says.
“This complaint is poorly written and looks more like a press release than a lawsuit, using politically charged terms and hyperbole instead of carefully reasoned legal claims,” says Breitbart News Senior Legal Editor Ken Klukowski."
The "Hondurans" - who somehow have the wherewithal to not only find a lawyer but pay for one - are claiming there US Constitution rights are being violated. Despite not being in the US. Or being citizens.
Well, it's the hardest evidence yet that, yes Virginia, the dems are behind it. Well, the hardest evidence is that it's a really bad idea, one that has already hurt them.
