|New Migrant Caravan Forms as Mexican Cities That Border US Keep Swelling with Asylum Seekers|
“Yet another caravan of more than 1,000 mostly Central American migrants has crossed Mexico’s southern border, according to officials.

“The new caravan begins the march north toward the United States as border cities like Ciudad Juárez are swelling with migrants already here from previous caravans . . .

Col. Tony Shaffer writes in The Detroit News. “As Democrats rally around radical proposals such as ‘Medicare-for-all,’ free college tuition, enormous minimum wage increases, and even guaranteed basic income, it was President Trump’s responsibility to remind us that socialism’s sweeping promises are always empty.”
