The migrant caravan marching toward the United States is a national security threat.
That’s why Donald Trump used any means necessary to stop the invasion.
And he just unleashed this secret weapon.
The Department of Homeland Security inserted paid informants in the caravan to track their movements and to identify dangerous individuals.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The Trump administration has paid informants embedded within a caravan of Central American migrants who are leaking information about the group’s movements and other details to Homeland Security officials, according to a report published Tuesday afternoon.
An NBC report did not specify how many informants the department had inside the moving group, whether they were migrants or U.S. officials, and how much they are being compensated. U.S. officials on Monday estimated that up to 10,500 people were traveling to the U.S. in a handful of different cararvans.
The government has been reading messages migrants are sending through messaging app WhatsApp to learn where they are headed.
Trump beefed up border security including deploying 5,000 troops to the border to assist in defending the country from a mob of migrants trying to invade the country.
But to know how to best defend the border, the Trump administration needs to know where to deploy their resources.
That’s where the paid informants come in.
They transmit the caravan’s movements back to the administration so they can best deploy the border patrol or – in some cases – shut down points of entry to stop migrants from flooding vulnerable entry points.
That’s exactly what happened at the San Ysidro point of entry in San Diego.
The Trump administration shut down the busiest point of entry in the country because they received intelligence that migrants planned to rush it.
Americans applauded the administration for taking every lawful step to preventing this migrant invasion.
