'the Five' Reacts To Growing Migrant Caravan Crisis

PRESIDENT TRUMP VOWING TO SEND AS MANY TROOPS "AS NECESSARY" TO STOP A CARAVAN OF THOUSANDS MARCHING TOWARDS THE UNITED STATES IF THEY REACH THE SOUTHERN BORDER.

THE PRESIDENT ALSO BLASTING DEMOCRATS FOR THE PROBLEM.

>> President Trump: YOU KNOW HOW THE CARAVAN STARTED? I THINK THE DEMOCRATS HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT, AND NOW THEY ARE.

SAYING I THINK WE MADE A BIG MISTAKE.

THAT’S AN ASSAULT ON OUR COUNTRY.

AND IN THAT CARAVAN, YOU HAVE SOME VERY BAD PEOPLE.

AND WE CAN’T LET THAT HAPPEN TO OUR. >> Dana: TRUMP NOT BACKING DOWN AFTER SAYING TERRORISTS IN GANG MEMBERS MIGHT BE AMONG THE MIGRANTS.

SPOKE TO THEM LAST EVENING THE DAY BEFORE. I SPEAK TO THEM ALL THE TIME AND THEY SAY, AND YOU KNOW THIS.

AS WELL AS ANYBODY, OVER THE.

COURSE OF THE YEAR, OVER THE COURSE OF A NUMBER OF YEARS, THEY HAVE INTERCEPTED MANY PEOPLE FROM. THEY HAVE INTERCEPTED ALL SORTS OF PEOPLE. THEY HAVE INTERCEPTED WONDERFUL PEOPLE FROM THE.

MIDDLE EAST AND THEY HAVE INTERCEPTED BAD ONES. THEY HAVE — >> Dana: PRESIDENT TRUMP CONTINUING.

TO ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM THE MEDIA.

SOUND BITE, SOMETHING YOU’RE NOT GONNA BELIEVE ABOUT WHAT WAS SAID ABOUT OUR MILITARY. >> IF YOU PUT MILITARY DOWN THERE, WE KNOW WHAT THE GOD FORBID IS IN THIS SITUATION.

THAT PLAY? I WAS IT GOOD FOR ANYBODY? YOU’RE NOT GOING TO TURN AWAY THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE EVEN IF PEOPLE START GETTING SHOT. WHAT MESSAGE DOES THAT SEND? WHO WINS? >> Dana: DID SURPRISE ME A LITTLE BIT HE WOULD.

SAY THAT BECAUSE OUR MILITARY IS NOT KNOWN FOR GOING AFTER INNOCENT PEOPLE. THEY ARE THERE TO TRY TO PROTECT THE BORDER. ANYWAY, GREG, WILL START WITH YOU. >> Greg: NOT VERY BRIGHT, THAT CUOMO FOLLOW. I WONDER ABOUT THE MEDIA BECAUSE THEY TEND NOT TO ASK THE VERY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS LIKE HOW DID THE CARAVAN START? WHO CALLED IT A CARAVAN? HOW IS IT BEING MANAGED, WHERE THE PEOPLE MANAGING IT? THEY SAY THAT THE.

CARAVAN IS BLOOMING LIKE IT IS SOME KIND OF NATURAL EVENT OR THAT IS SPONTANEOUS. IT’S ORGANIZED BY MEXICAN ADVOCACY GROUPS, AND THEN WHEN YOU GET TO THE SIZABLE GROUP OF PEOPLE IN WHICH YOU CAN’T.

TELL WHO’S IN THE GROUP AND WHO ISN’T WHICH IS WHY YOU NEED A PROCESS, BECAUSE THERE COULD BE TERRORISTS AND OBVIOUSLY THERE COULD NOT BE TERRORISTS. WHO’S GOING TO KNOW? THE MEDIA TAKES THE NARRATIVE AND THEY TWISTED, SO AFTER HELPING THE ONSLAUGHT MULTIPLY, THE ACCUSED TRUMP OF.

SEIZING IT AS AN ISSUE WHEN BEFOREHAND, IT WAS THE MEDIA AND THE ADVOCACY GROUPS WHO HAD SEIZED ON THIS SPECTACLE TO BEGIN WITH TO CREATE AN UGLY POLITICAL ISSUE. AND THEN THEY GO BUT LOOK WHAT TRUMP IS. THEY ARE A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITES. YOU KNOW IT IS SADDER? AVENATTI IS TELLING THE DEMOCRATS TO GROW A SPINE. WHEN MICHAEL AVENATTI BECOMES THE VOICE OF REASON FOR YOUR PARTY, YOU ARE IN TROUBLE? >> Dana: TALK ABOUT IN TERMS OF THE MEDIA.

COVERAGE, SAYING THAT THE MEDIA SHOULD NOT TAKE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S WORDS AND USE THEM SO THAT THE ONSLAUGHT WAS TOO STRONG. THEY THINK MAYBE THERE WAS SOFTER LANGUAGE. >> Jesse: IT’S LIKE THE MOB CONTROVERSY.

IT’S A PARADE, PROBABLY WHAT THEY WOULD SAY. THEY HAVE REPORTED BREATHLESSLY ABOUT HOW MANY SCOOPS OF ICE CREAM THIS PRESIDENT HAS.

AND THEY ARE NOT EVEN CURIOUS ABOUT HOW THIS CARAVAN ARE HAPPENING. I THINK THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO’VE SENT REPORTERS DOWN TO EMBEDDED IN THE CARAVAN, FOX NEWS. "THE WASHINGTON POST" HAS SOMEONE DOWN THERE, AND JUDICIAL WATCH EVEN HAS SOMEONE DOWN THERE. THERE’S NOT A LOT OF INTEREST IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA, SO WHEN TRUMP SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT THE CARAVAN, THERE IS NO WAY FOR THEM TO FACT-CHECK IT. THEY ARE GOING TO ASSUME THE PRESIDENT IS SAYING INCORRECT THINGS, AND SOME OF THE REPORTING.

COMING OUT OF THERE IS VERY INTERESTING. 80% OF THOSE PEOPLE IN THE MIGRANT CARAVAN ARE MALES UNDER THE AGE OF 35, AND THEY ARE NOT FLEEING VIOLENCE. DO YOU KNOW THEY HOLD "THE WASHINGTON POST"? WHEN THEY GET THERE AND START MAKING MONEY IN AMERICA, THEY ARE GOING TO WIRE THE MONEY BACK TO EL. SOME OF THESE PEOPLE ARE GANG AFFILIATED. A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY DEPORTED, AND THAT’S BEEN CONFIRMED. IF THEY ARE REALLY THAT UPSET ABOUT THE CONDITIONS IN THE COUNTRY, INSTEAD OF MARCHING UP NORTH TO AMERICA, MARCH AGAINST YOUR OWN CORRUPT GOVERNMENT. THAT WOULD SOLVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS IN MY OPINION. >> Dana: HERE, JUAN, WE ARE TWO WEEKS AWAY FROM THE MIDTERMS, TWO WEEKS. SOMEONE LIKE JOE DONNELLY OR CLAIRE McCASKILL, TWO RED STATE DEMOCRATS RUNNING FOR REELECTION, THEY KNOW THAT FOR THE NEXT 13 DAYS, THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES ARE GOING TO BE.

USING THIS ISSUE AND IT’S NOT GOOD FOR THEM IN THEIR CAMPAIGN. >> Juan: NO, BECAUSE ANY TIME USE FEARMONGERING, IT REALLY PUSHES A BUTTON AND I THINK THE PRESIDENT AND THE REPUBLICANS RIGHT NOW, ABSENT A MESSAGE FOR THE MIDTERMS MAY HAVE DECIDED THIS IS THE BUTTON TO PUSH. I READ TODAY STEPHEN KING, THE HORROR BOOK WRITER SAID.

THE REPUBLICAN CAMPAIGN THEME HERE IS THE AFRAID. THEREFORE, EVEN TODAY THE PRESIDENT, WHO SUGGESTED GUESS WHAT, THERE COULD BE MIDDLE EASTERN TERRORISTS AMONG THESE PEOPLE. TODAY HE’S A WE DON’T HAVE PROOF BUT THEY COULD BE.

HE JUST PUSHES THE FEAR BUTTON WHEN HE DOESN’T HAVE ANYTHING.

TO ME, WHAT’S INCREDIBLE IS, MY REPUBLICAN FRIENDS BUY THIS STALE BREAD OF HATRED. THE PRESIDENT EVEN GOES HARDER. THESE GLOBALISTS WANT TO COME IN HERE AND TAKE OVER. NATIONALIST, WHERE WE’VE HEARD THAT? WHITE NATIONALIST. SO HORRIBLE, SO INTENSELY DIVISIVE. >> Greg: DON’T YOU THINK IT’S DIVISIVE TO SAY YOUR REPUBLICANS — YOUR SONS ARE REPUBLICANS.

I’M CALLING THIS ACTION BY THIS PRESIDENT, GIVEN THE DIVISIVE NATURE. >> Dana: SHOULD WE JUST DO NOTHING? >> Juan: HOW.

DID AMERICA REACT BACK THEN? IN TERMS OF COME YOU THINK ABOUT THE JEWISH EXODUS, IRISH PEOPLE COMING TO THIS COUNTRY AS A RESULT OF FAMINE.

MOMENT, THERE WERE PEOPLE IN THE FAR RIGHT TOO REACTIVE. STOP THOSE JEWS FROM COMING IN HERE.

EMILY, DO YOU THINK IT’S COMPARABLE? >> Emily: KNOW, AND I WANT TO POINT OUT TWO THINGS. NUMBER ONE, THIS HUMANITARIAN CRISIS PREEXISTED THIS CARAVAN INTO ME THE MIXED MESSAGING AND HYPOCRISY’S POINT FROM THE LEFT WHO ARE IGNORING THE.

FACT THAT 16 JOURNALISTS WERE KILLED THIS YEAR ALONE IN MEXICO, AND ALL OF THE ATTENTION IS ON KHASHOGGI. OR THAT MIGRANTS FOUND DEAD IN TEXAS BECAUSE OF THE CHOKE HOLD THE CARTELS HAVE ON NOT ONLY THOSE GOVERNMENTS SOUTH OF US BUT ALSO THOSE PEOPLE.

INCLUDING THE FACT THAT AN ENTIRE POLICE OFFICE WAS ARRESTED FOR CORRUPTION. THE BORDER SECURITY IS A SMALL PORTION OF THE ABSOLUTE CRISIS IS GOING ON, AND THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IS BECAUSE OF THE POROUS BORDER AND LACK. SECONDLY, ABOUT THE MILITARY AND THE COMMENTS. YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THE NATIONAL GUARD COMES UNDER STATE AUTHORITY WITH FEDERAL FUNDS. THE PRESIDENT CAN FEDERALIZE THEM. ACTIVE-DUTY MILITARY, THE EXCEPTION TO THE POST, TOSS — SUPPORT, NOT LAW ENFORCEMENT LAW ENFORCEMENT. THE HYPERBOLE FROM THE LEFT, SAYING THAT THEY.

ARE GOING TO START SHOOTING PEOPLE IS OFFENSIVE AND TOTALLY INCORRECT. >> Juan: WE DISAGREE, OBVIOUSLY. I FEEL SO PASSIONATELY ABOUT IT. SOMETHING INSIDE, SO IMPORTANT. THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS PREDATES THIS. PEOPLE SHOULD THINK OF IT IN THOSE TERMS, BECAUSE I THINK THE CONSERVATIVES HISTORICALLY HAVE BEEN EMPATHETIC, COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE, NOT LIKE WITH THIS PRESIDENT IS DOING. >> Jesse: I HAVE TO ADDRESS SOME OF THE THINGS YOU. SARA CARTER, WANTED HER CALLING SARAH FOX NEWS, WENT THERE. SPOKE TO GUATEMALAN INTELLIGENCE AND INTERVIEW PEOPLE IN THE CARAVAN AND IS CONFIRMED THERE IS MS-13 AFFILIATED GANG MEMBERS AMONG THEM CARAVAN.

GOING TO SIT THERE AND CALL YOUR COLLEAGUE A LIAR WHILE YOU ARE SITTING IN THIS NICE AIR-CONDITIONED STUDIO IN MANHATTAN, I THINK IT’S UNBECOMING. SECOND OF ALL, YOU HAVE NOT SAID — WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO BUT THE CARAVAN, JUAN? YOU HAVE NO PLAN TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO OUT OF SUBSTANCE TO WHAT TO DO WITH THIS 7,000 STRONG MIGRATION COMING NORTH? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? >> Juan: I THINK.

IT’S VERY CLEAR, GIVEN REPUBLICANS CONTROL THE WHITE HOUSE — >> Jesse: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH THE BORDER? >> Juan: WHY DON’T THEY THINK THE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM THAT IS SO BADLY BROKEN. >> Jesse: FIX THE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM? IT’S BECAUSE OF DEMOCRATIC POLITICS. THIS IS WHAT ATTRACTS THESE PEOPLE. >> Juan: THIS IS LOWBALL POLITICS AND YOU ARE ON MESSAGE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP. >> Jesse: YOU WANT TO PROTECT ELECTION INTEGRITY BUT YOU DON’T WANT TO PROTECT THE INTEGRITY OF THE BORDER. IF THESE WERE RUSSIANS COMING ACROSS, YOU WILL PROBABLY BUILD THE WALL. >> Juan: PEOPLE COMING WITH GUNS, HORDES, THEY’RE GOING TO TAKE OVER AMERICA? >> Jesse: NO ONE IS TAKING OVER ANYTHING. >> Greg: ACCORDING TO JUAN’S MESSAGE, MEXICO IS RACIST. THEY ARE TRYING TO STOP IMMIGRANTS. EVERYBODY IS RACIST IF THEY DON’T AGREE WITH YOU. YOUR FILTER IS NOTHING BUT RACE. >> Juan: I THINK YOU HAVE A DIFFICULTY.

ACKNOWLEDGING WHERE THERE IS RACIAL INJUSTICE AND.
