Flashback: Legal Migrant Trashes Caravan Movement, Stuns Panel

Combined Shape

Editor’s Note: This was a popular story with our readers when it originally ran; we’re re-posting it here in case you missed it.

Amapola Hansberger is the founder of LIFA, Legal Immigrants for America, and she told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade on Monday the caravan headed to America is an “act of war.”

Hansberger is a legal immigrant from Nicaragua. She explained she went through the normal legal process by going to the embassy, filling out forms, submitting to a vetting process and waiting for the embassy to approve her application.

“The caravan is an invasion and an act of war which is defined as an active aggression by a country against another which constitutes an immediate threat to peace,” she said, “and, I must add, a immediate threat to national security.”

“The are a threat to our national security because today it’s not only countries that go to war. It is groups such as ISIS, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Taliban — and they have declared war openly against the United States, so with the open borders policies we have had, how many of them are in America now?”

“And at what point are we going to (say) the organizers are committing an act of war?” she asked Kilmeade. “Is it at 40,000, when they bring in 40,000 strangers?”

Hansberger believes the Nicaraguan and Hondurans are “enticed by people that fund their caravan with money. They are instructed what to say, what to do.

“They are also brainwashed to believing that they belong to the United States of America and they have rights to come in and ask for benefits,” she added.

Do you agree the caravan approaching to enter the U.S. is an act of war?

Hansberger’s comments came the day after President Donald Trump tweeted that migrants at border would be turned away if they failed to apply first for asylum in Mexico.

Maybe the liberals who have been so squishy in sympathy for illegal immigrants would be enlightened by someone who actually made it through the process they have already deemed unfair and impossible to navigate.

It can be done and those that do it really appreciate what this country has to offer, apparently so much so at least one has founded an organization that “gives a voice to all Americans, including both native-born citizens and legal immigrants, who want to save the United States of America before it becomes a borderless, lawless, toothless remnant of the great nation that it once was.”

Thank you, Amapola Hansberger, for being a voice of reason on immigration when is seems so absent from so many, too often.
