They may not be behind the wheel, but Democrats have driven illegal immigrants in the migrant caravan to the U.S. border, President Trump asserted during a raucous rally in Montana Thursday night.
"They also figure, everybody coming in is going to vote Democrat," he added.
“They wanted that caravan and there are those who say that caravan didn’t just happen," he claimed. "It didn’t just happen. I just want to thank the Mexican government because they are stopping it hopefully before it ever gets to Mexico.”
He continued to blame the Democrats on Twitter.
I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 18, 2018
....In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 18, 2018
....The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 18, 2018
Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) said on CNN Friday that the president is using the situation "to divide Americans." This is not a military situation, the Democrat said, "it's a humanitarian situation."
Trump is acting like "a 6th or 7th grader," Castro said, for suggesting Democrats wants these immigrants' votes. "None of these folks are able to vote in the U.S."

"I wish he wouldn't talk about fellow human beings like scapegoats to try and win in the midterms," the representative added.
