Fox News host Laura Ingraham called the caravan of migrants from Central America a “mobile mob” that’s trying to “overwhelm” the U.S. southern border.
“One thing is clear, they know that there is protection in numbers — that if they flood the zone they’ll be able to overwhelm border patrol officials as they did in Guatemala and in Mexico,” she said on “The Ingraham Angle” Monday.

“It’s no wonder the mobile mob feels emboldened,” Ingraham continued. “After vowing not to allow them through Mexico, Mexico, its police force is actually now providing an escort to the migrant caravan, if you can believe that.”
Ingraham said the average American is against letting the caravan of migrants cross the border and sees it as an invasion.
“If they come illegally, guess what? Most Americans think it’s not fair. And Donald Trump knows this,” she said. “When he says he wants to stop this mobile mob, a lot of people calling it invasions — most Americans see it as not just an economic burden and it is one, but a flagrant flouting of the rule of law as well.”
Ingraham said allowing the caravan to cross the border would be a slap in the face to those who are waiting in line for citizenship and to homeless American veterans who need assistance.
“Like [Supreme Court Justice Brett] Kavanaugh, it does come down to a basic sense of fairness,” she said, adding:
“Not only would allowing this crush of people into our country be an insult to the millions of Americans who went through the legal process, how is it fair to those Americans who need assistance today and are not getting it? Like the 40,000 homeless veterans on the street on any given night.”
