The Democrat Party is in a bind.
A migrant caravan is marching towards America and voters are demanding answers on how to stop it.
But the Democrats awful response to the caravan will leave you speechless.
Democrats Ignore The Caravan
Democrats are ducking for cover over questions about the caravan.
They don’t want to deal with the thousands of migrants threatening to invade America.
That’s because the midterm election is Tuesday and they can’t afford to do anything that would depress their voter turnout.
Large portions of the Democrat base supports open borders and believes any enforcement measures are white supremacy.
That is a political loser.
So last month, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi put out a joint statement begging Democrats to ignore Donald Trump making immigration a big campaign issue.

The GOP is threatening to gut protections for pre-existing conditions. Dems are focused like a laser to #ProtectOurCare. pic.twitter.com/WtOPeTUMrb

Democrats Follow Schumer And Pelosi’s Advice
Democrats worked hard to follow Schumer and Pelosi’s advice and avoided talking about the caravan.
The Daily Caller contacted 20 Democrat campaigns and only Elizabeth Warren’s responded.
They sent a statement that read, “In regards to the caravan, we have laws for people who come to the border seeking asylum, and Senator Warren believes that we should follow those laws. However, she also knows that we should never have been in this situation. The real problem is Donald Trump’s chaotic foreign policy and lack of a long-term strategy in the region.”
While Democrats run and hide on immigration, Donald Trump is making the caravan and the threat of a migrant invasion the top issue in the closing days of the midterm election.
There is a good reason Democrats want nothing to do with the issue and Trump wants to make it the focus of the campaign.
A Numbers USA poll found 65 percent of voters in swing districts want to keep the caravan out of America.
That’s why at a rally in Missouri, Trump declared, “If you don’t want America to be overrun by masses of illegal aliens and giant caravans, you better vote Republican.”
The fake news media responded by claiming Trump was engaging in racism.
That’s their go-to move.
Whenever Democrats are losing on an issue, the fake news media swoops in and declares Republicans as being “racist.”
Trump addressed this gutter tactic during a speech in Missouri.
“We have forcefully condemned hatred, bigotry, racism and prejudice in all of its ugly forms, but the media doesn’t want you to hear your story,” the President stated. “It’s not my story. It’s your story. And that’s why 33 percent of the people in this country believe the fake news is, in fact — and I hate to say this — in fact, the enemy of the people.”
But every tactic the Democrats and the media are trying – either smearing Republicans with the race card or trying to ignore the issue – is failing.
Polls show the Republicans are likely to keep their Senate majority and may even expand it by two to three seats.
