This is more like one of the weekly Leftist Lexicon posts by my esteemed guest author Thomas. We will be defining a few words/phrases here since the Left wants to take over the language. We must take out language back. Words have meaning.
There is a caravan of illegal aliens coming northward through Central America. Not only are these aliens from several different Central American countries, they also come from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. These people are well provisioned and their numbers are getting larger.
The Left wants people to believe that this invasion force are refugees fleeing from gang violence and economic hardship to get a better life in the United States. But this is where the Left has taken over the language. None of them are refugees.
A refugee is an internationally recognized legal status where the individual has proven that they are subject to persecution on the basis of race, religion, or political views in their country of origin.
Likewise, an asylum seeker is someone seeking to become a refugee. Very few, if any, of the illegal alien invasion force marching towards our southern border will qualify for refugee status.
This band of mostly able-bodied men of military fighting age are possibly fleeing devastating economic issues and extreme gang violence. But neither of these are grounds for refugee status. By leaving their homelands they have become criminals. And their crimes are legion.
For the most part these people are a lawless marauding invasion force. They have unlawfully exited their nations of origin. They have unlawfully entered multiple nations during this march against the sovereign territory of the United States of America.
When crossing borders they have assaulted the legal authority of invaded nation. Leaving bloodied officers of the law in the streets. They have used weapons such as bottles, knives, clubs, and even fists in these assaults.
They have no regard for life as they use the few women and children with them as human shields at the front of the caravan when illegally crossing the borders of sovereign nations.
Once through the border these marauding invaders have no regard for property as it’s destruction and theft is clearly evident by this lawless band.
We, as a nation, must first and foremost protect our citizens and our borders from this lawless marauding invasion force. And we must do so by any and every means available, including lethal force.
Personally I don’t want it to come to that but this band of lawless marauders does not have any regard for the rule of law. They use women and children as human shields, breakdown barriers and assault law enforcement officers. And I don’t think they will be any different by the time they reach the US border.
