Former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer said President Donald Trump is right to warn of a security threat to the United States from caravans of Central Americans marching to the U.S. border with Mexico.

Brewer, a Republican, made her comments in a column posted by The Hill.

“President Trump has pledged that he will deploy the military to defend our territory, but the Democrats are demanding that we throw open the gates and let the hordes through unchecked,” she said.

“The migrants themselves frequently employ both martial and religious terminology, referring to themselves as ‘warriors’ and vowing that nothing will stop them from entering the United States. ‘Only God’ will stop the caravan, one migrant preached, while another declared that ‘Donald Trump is the antichrist.’

And she maintained the Department of Homeland Security has confirmed that some of those in the caravans are “gang members or have significant criminal histories.”

“The agency also reported that people from the Middle East, South Asia, and other countries outside Central America are also walking to the United States, which is particularly troubling in light of the fact that we know there is a terrorist presence in Central America,” she said.

Brewer noted “the migrant caravans are a serious national security threat and must be treated as such.”

“President Trump is not only right in his approach to fixing our broken immigration system in America, he is right in his convictions about enforcing the rule of law and protecting our communities in the process,” she said.
