Pleased to read this rebuke by the editorial board of the Austin American-Statesman of Trump's ghastly spectacle of the U.S. military on our southern border. It's good to keep the record straight that this is NOT a national emergency as Trump maintained. Neither did he provide evidence that criminal elements are mixed in with the so-called "caravan," which is a euphemism of families seeking asylum in response to gang violence, corruption, and grinding poverty back home. Plus, according to our own laws, these families have a right to seek asylum.
This is not at all an "invasion," but rather a very small trickle of folks in desperate need of help. What a waste of money and resources to send our troops on a mission of dubious value as indicated herein. And what a sad chapter in our history of relations with our neighbors to the South.
