The Caravan has become the Democratic Party’s Achilles Heel

You should know that according to the Greek mythology, Achilles was a powerful and immortal semi-god. The story says his mother, in order to make her son immortal, immersed him in the River Styx. As an infant, he was submerged into the river by his mother who held him by his heel, and so this part of his body remained mortal.

Achilles was immortal and there was no way to kill Achilles. He was all powerful. The only way he could be killed was through his heel.

That brings me to the Democratic Party and the caravan of immigrants coming through Mexico headed to invade the United States of America. According to some accounts, the number of individuals involved with the caravans ranges from 7,000-15,000 people. All of them heading to the United States. This includes all kinds of individuals from innocent children and women to criminals, members of the terrible gang MS-13, and terrorists making believe they are immigrants.

It is important for you to know the way in which the leaders of the Democratic Party have behaved requesting the abolishment of the Immigration & Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE), and the manner in which Democratic leaders have incited people to disturb the peace of Trump’s cabinet members, have given Trump the opportunity to turn the march into the Democrats Achilles heel.

Even Puerto Ricans — who are US citizens by birth — and many Hispanic immigrants, who came here legally and waited so many years before becoming US citizens, are turning against the Democratic party. So much that a few weeks ago, it was almost certain that the Democrats would take control of the US Senate, now it seems that the Republicans will be keeping control and might be gaining up to 55 Senators.

As you know countries have their own immigration rules to protect their borders. This is not only happening in America, this happens in the Dominican Republic with the neighboring Haitians. This caravan could also inspire other immigrants to invade other countries, especially among Latin American countries.

Another issue that was poorly handled by the Democrats was the case of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court Hearing. All these issues have given President Donald Trump a boost in popularity and the Republican Party the opportunity to keep control of the Senate and the House.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Democratic Party nationally has less than two weeks to come up with the right strategy or I am afraid on November 6th they will be hit in the “Achilles heel” by a Republican arrow.
