Judge Andrew Napolitano defended President Donald Trump’s tweet on Monday asserting that caravans of people are illegally crossing the Mexican border into the United States.


Trump asserted that “Mexico has the absolute power not to let these large ‘Caravans’ of people enter the country” and “must stop them at their Northern Border.”

On Fox Business Network, Napolitano said that Trump is “right” about the caravans and that the issue is not an “exaggeration.”

“He’s talking about serious reports with photographs — this is not just anybody’s exaggeration,” he explained. “About 1,200 people — men, women and children — marching from Central America, intending to march through Mexico and enter the United States.”

“He’s basically saying Mexico can stop them: he’s right. But Mexico needs to stop them, Stuart, before they enter Mexico,” Napolitano continued. “Because once they enter Mexico, Mexico’s goal will just be to push them out, and it doesn’t care if it pushes them out its Southern border or if it pushes them out its Northern border which is contiguous with us.”
