Trump press conference: President announces 'violence' from caravan will be met with radical military response


Independent

Quote:
Donald Trump has suggested stone-throwing migrants making it to the US-Mexico border might be shot by the US military, as he unveiled a proposal to limit the right to apply for asylum.
Quote:
In a speech at the White House filled with several falsehoods, the president said he was seeking to limit asylum claims only to those who applied at legal entry points. He claimed the move was necessary because a series of migrant caravans – still up to a 1,000 miles from the border – was considered by some people to be “an invasion”.
anyone remember that movie the Russians are coming, the Russians are coming
I love old slapstick
but let's move on with our story:

Quote:
“Asylum is not a programme for those living in poverty. There are billions of people in the world living at the poverty level. The United States cannot possibly absorb them all,” he said.
Quote:
Mr. Trump has ramped up his tough stance on illegal immigration, an issue that appeals to his core supporters, before crucial midterm elections on Tuesday that will decide if his Republican Party keep control of Congress.

“Asylum is a very specific protection based on those fleeing persecution.”

The migrants making their way northwards have come largely from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, all of which suffer from poverty and high levels of violence.
Quote:
He said some had thrown stones at, and attacked Mexican police and troops – a reference to clashes between Mexican security forces and up to 1,500 migrants at the Guatemala-Mexico border, that left one migrant dead. Meanwhile, even as the number of migrants attached to the original caravan continues to dwindle, a third group of around 500 migrants from El Salvador entered Guatemala last weekend.
Quote:
“I hope there won’t be that. But I will tell you this, anybody throwing stones, rocks like they did to Mexico … Where they badly hurt police and soldiers of Mexico – we will consider that a firearm,” the president said.

“Because there’s not much difference when you get hit in the face with a rock.”

People LEGALLY seeking asylum don't commit acts of violence, breaking through Mexico's border by injuring the people there to stop them. I think it's great that our military will be authorized to nip that violence in the bud.

Most are not asylum seekers; there are violent criminals and a lot of people escaping poverty in their own countries who want to live off US taxpayers instead, which is NOT a legitimate reason for asylum. I think it will take shots being fired to halt the increasing invasion of our southern border. I'm glad we have a president with the balls to do what needs to be done to stop this.

Any clowns out there who think an assault with a rock is not dangerous? Please stand still at a "safe" distance while I throw rocks at you, but you don't do anything to hurt me, okay?

President Trump hasn't ramped up his stance on illegal border invading. Border invaders have ramped up theirs. What do you think the response should be?

President Trump's only mistake if he actually said that, is that a rock is a firearm. Arms and weapons need not be firearms.

If you fire that rock from a tube powered by some explosive substance, then I agree with Trump's assessment. I think he meant to say that any physical attack will be deemed as dangerous as an attack with a firearm. Those of you who are well-armed, but do not consider a rock attack dangerous, are welcome to stand militarily with your thumbs up your asses, thank you.

I also think if your superior tells you not to shoot back at some monkeys throwing rocks at you, he just gave you an illegal, unlawful order; one you may not follow. My opinion.

I'm curious what Mattis has to say about that.

I'm generally armed. Throw a rock with the intent to do bodily harm you'll learn what I consider deadly force.

Asshat Democrats think that people should be allowed to throw rocks at Law Enforcement with inpunity, good grief the stupid Democrats don't even think Law Enforcement should be able to pull their guns, the leftists are pure morons in addition to being haters.

those are another smaller group where the only facts known is that one Honduran was killed. Those already heading to the US (but still a thousand mi away) are not the same people.

our military cannot shoot anyone on or from American soil.

most are asylum seekers from the abject poverty of a dictator and illegal election. the demographic would include some sht heads. most are women children and teenagers.

.


We are not being invaded, Virginia. We have a refugee problem. instead of dealing with it sensibly trump is playing politics while drumming up fear and hate.

I am sorry we have an sht head in the Whitehouse who by his fear mongering nudges white supremacist groups to violence and spurs a mentally fvcked individual to focus his anger on 11 innocent parishioners.

his mistake is not attacking the problem instead of making it worse and perhaps causing war in our own hemisphere.
I'll assume by the rock comment you've been drinking again and give you a pass.

But President Trump is attacking the problem. The problem is thousands are on the way to invade our country. How would you solve the problem? Just letting them come in solves nothing.

Never assume. I don't drink before noon, ever.

The rock statement is a fact. A rock is not a firearm. Which does not mean it is not an arm.
