President Trump isn’t taking any chances.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that they are sending immigration judges and prosecutors to the border in an attempt to stop an oncoming caravan of illegal immigrants.
DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen made the announcement Monday afternoon.
“DHS, in partnership with DOJ, is taking a number of steps to ensure that all cases and claims are adjudicated promptly – including sending additional USCIS asylum officers, ICE attorneys, DOJ Immigration Judges, and DOJ prosecutors to the southern border,” Nielsen said.

The President tweeted about the move on Monday as well.
“I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country,” he wrote on social media. “It is a disgrace.”
Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country. It is a disgrace. We are the only Country in the World so naive! WALL

It is just the latest effort by the White House to halt, or at least uphold the law regarding, the arrival of illegals from Central America.
Earlier this month, President Trump announced that he would utilize the nation’s military to guard the southern border.

Many of the migrants in the caravan vowed to defy the President and enter the country illegally regardless.
One Salvadoran national, according to the Daily Mail, referred to Trump as being ‘crazy’ and ‘racist.’
“I’ll be reunited with my family,” he said, having been deported previously. “See you soon Mr. President.”
It might not be the President you’re seeing soon … it might be the military or prosecutors from the DOJ and ICE.
“DHS continues to monitor the remnants of the ‘caravan’ of individuals headed to our Southern border with the apparent intention of entering the United States illegally,” Nielsen said.
“If you enter the United States illegally, let me be clear: you have broken the law. And we will enforce the law through prosecution of illegal border crossers.”
