Today a reporter attempted to corner President Trump with a "gotcha" question by asking "Are you really okay with the military firing on the caravan?" Trump curtly replied, 

"[T]hey won't have to fire. What I don’t want is, I don’t want these people throwing rocks. It's turned out, in fact it was just announced, by Homeland Security you have in just certain areas over 300 people they know are trouble. What they did to the Mexican military is a disgrace, they hit 'em with rocks, some were seriously injured, and [the caravan] were throwing rocks in their face... They do that with us, they’re going to be arrested. There’s going to be problems.... I didn’t say 'shoot.' I didn’t say 'shoot.' But they do that with us, they’re going to be arrested for a long time. We’ll arrest them.”

The Homeland Security report covered earlier today by MRCTV indicated nearly 300 known criminals with charges from sexual assault to gang-related crimes are among the caravan's ranks.
