Laura Ingraham Posts Stunning Migrant Caravan Photo - 'This Must Be Stopped'

Laura Ingraham, host of Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” on Saturday posted a stunning photo on Twitter of the giant crowd of U.S.-bound migrants crossing a bridge from Guatemala into Mexico.

The photograph shared by Ingraham shows the mass of humanity traveling from Central America into Mexico and the United States.

“4,500 on the Puente Internacional Suchiate bridge—Mexico now recognizes this must be stopped,” Ingraham wrote on Twitter.

The giant group of migrants was crossing the Puente Rodolfo Robles bridge connecting Guatemala and Mexico over the Suchiate River, which acts as a natural border.

The migrant caravan, numbering in the thousands, started in Honduras last Saturday, and it has hit a critical point at the Guatemalan-Mexican border.

Although Mexico prepared for the mass of traveling migrants, four Mexican police officers were injured trying to control the chaos.

Speaking to the media in Mexico City, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expressed his sympathy for the injured officers.

Should Mexico send more police officers to stop the migrant caravan?

“They’ve had four policemen injured already, as they have reported it. We understand that to be accurate. We don’t know the severity of those injuries, but I want to express my sympathy to those four policemen,” Pompeo said.

Pompeo also spoke about how the migrants are using women and children to make their way through.

“This is a group, a large group of people; they are putting women and children in front of the caravan to use as shields as they make their way through,” he said.

The secretary of state said the U.S. is prepared to support Mexico’s decisions to deal with the migrants.

“This is an organized effort to come through and violate the sovereignty of Mexico, and so we’re prepared to do all that we can to support the decisions that Mexico makes about how they’re going to address this very serious and important issue to their country,” he said.

President Donald Trump has warned that If the mass of migrants reaches the U.S. border, they will be arrested and sent away.

“Anybody entering the United States illegally will be arrested and detained, prior to being sent back to their country!” Trump tweeted Tuesday.

Hopefully Mexican officials will be able to handle the caravan before it reaches the United States.

Judging from the photos being released, that won’t be easy.
