Doesn’t it strike you odd that the President and others have pretty much stopped talking about the Caravan now that the election is over? They’re even removing the troops, after having done virtually nothing. You make a great point about border security, but if this were a real crisis, it would still be front and center. Since it was purely political, now it doesn’t matter. And anyway, even if it is a group of young men, don’t you think ICE was certainly capable of handling them? This was far from an armed invasion demanding military intervention, don’t you think?

I am, by the way, genuinely interested in your views on this. Thanks for your insightful comment.
