VIDEO: Students say open border to caravan
- As thousands of immigrants seeking asylum in the United States make their way toward the southern border, the situation has reignited the national conversation on illegal immigration.
- Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips traveled to Lockhaven University in Pennsylvania to ask students if the caravan should be granted asylum in the U.S.
This month, a migrant caravan of nearly 7,500 people began making its way from Central America toward the United States in search of asylum.
The caravan, currently in Mexico, has renewed the national conversation surrounding illegal immigration and border security and will likely have a strong impact on the approaching midterm elections. While some have said it’s time to open our borders and welcome those in the caravan, others, including President Donald Trump, have said it’s time to secure the border and prevent them from entering.
