Gorka: Trump Has Authority to Block Migrant Caravan

By    |   Friday, 26 October 2018 12:08 PM

President Donald Trump has the "unique constitutional authority" to decide who comes into the United States and to use the same laws he used for a travel ban to block a migrant caravan from crossing the Mexican border, former Trump deputy assistant and analyst Sebastian Gorka said Friday.

"I was involved with preparing the original travel moratorium," Gorka told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "I was involved in selling it to the American people and explaining it. It was challenged and what happened...the president has the unique constitutional authority to decide who comes into the United States and under which yardstick they are measured."

Gorka also dismissed critics who say the caravan does not pose a threat to the United States.

"People like Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch and Sara Carter have gone down and interviewed the caravan, and found people from south Asia, from Bangladesh," said Gorka. "The president of Guatemala has said he just deported a hundred ISIS members."

He also claimed that "80 percent of the caravan are military-aged male," making the caravan a "potential national security threat."

Gorka also disagreed with the thought that the caravan walkers should be allowed in because of the economic conditions in their own countries.

"There is 7 billion people in the world," he said. "A lot of them are poor. Where do we stop? Do we open the borders and let everybody in? Then America ceases to exist."
