Florida AG Bondi: Caravan Migrants 'Not Here Peacefully'

By    |   Tuesday, 23 October 2018 08:30 AM

Migrants heading through Mexico as part of a massive migrant caravan will be arrested if they attempt to breach the United States' border, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said Tuesday, warning that the immigrants are "not here peacefully."

"I'm a career prosecutor. and I have seen first hand what comes in to our country from Mexico, from China to Mexico, into our country," Bondi told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "The heroin, the fentanyl, all the drugs, the gang members...we have to protect our borders."

She referred to immigrants breaking down fences to enter Mexico as "violent" and called for the movement to stop.

"The fact that they would even risk children being out there with them, that shows that they are not here peacefully," said Bondi. "We have seen them burning the American flag. They are here to cause trouble ― I can't say that for all of them, of course."

However, she added, "we have got to protect our country, our citizens and our kids from the drugs, from the human trafficking. That's why we have borders and that's why we have a vetting process in our country."

On Monday, President Donald Trump declared the caravan as a national emergency and said the U.S.will cut off or reduce the "massive foreign aid" given to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador after they did not stop the migrants' trip north.
