NORTHCOM and North American Aerospace Defense Commander General Terrence O’Shaughnessy is warning that the mass of humanity en route to the U.S.-Mexico border from Central America is unprecedented. “This caravan is different from what we’ve seen in the past,” said O’Shaughnessy. “What we have seen, is . . . violence coming out of the caravan, and we’ve seen as they’ve passed other international borders.” Their level of violence – and entitlement – is unprecedented, and their storming of Mexico’s border with Guatemala, violence against law enforcement, and rejection of an offer of asylum in Mexico are just the beginning of the fight. This is the justification for Iraq-level reinforcements at our border with Mexico.

The U.S. commander overseeing the military’s response to the migrant caravan headed from Central America to the U.S. southern border said Tuesday that the caravan was unlike anything officials have seen before.
“This caravan is different from what we’ve seen in the past,” Air Force Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy, commander of U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command, told reporters at the Pentagon. “What we have seen, is we’ve seen clearly an organization at a higher level than we’ve seen before.”
“We’ve seen violence coming out of the caravan, and we’ve seen as they’ve passed other international borders, we’ve seen them behave in a nature that is not what we’ve seen in the past,” he added.
There were reports of violence from the caravan earlier in the day. Mexican authorities arrested two Hondurans who allegedly shot at federal police officers escorting the caravan across the southern Mexican state of Chiapas.
