BREAKING: The American Civil Liberties Union files a legal challenge to President Trump's order denying asylum to migrants if they cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally. https://t.co/yLo7ePGI9w

Trump tells us he’s issuing proclamation suspending the entry of immigrants who cross the border unlawfully, barring them from eligibility for asylum. Any inadmissible immigrants to ports of entry, where they will be processed “in a lawful manner,” staff said yesterday. pic.twitter.com/XYqvLNWy8c

The Trump administration is sending thousands of troops to keep out Central American asylum-seekers, but it may well lift a travel ban on a far-right bigot—who previously snuck in to the US—so he can speak to @SteveKingIA and other fellow racists. https://t.co/6GUVR3k5cG

It was just a ploy to get his cult to vote. He duped his cult and the media.

Other than retweeting one WH message about new asylum rules, Trump’s Twitter feed has been silent since Election Day about the caravans approaching the southern border, which he constantly called a crisis in the days running up to the midterms
— Manu Raju (@mkraju) November 11, 2018
Notice that the caravan totally disappeared as an issue as soon as the votes were cast — not just Fox News, but mainstream media too. Guys, you really need to take a hard look in the mirror and ask why you're so easily played 2/

Trump tweets about the "caravan:"
Before Election Day: 9
After Election Day: 0
Meanwhile, there are more than 5,000 troops deployed along on the border, away from their families, for this political stunt. Shameful.

The president has not tweeted about the caravan “invasion” since before the election.

To those who believed Trump’s lies about the phony caravan crisis before the election, why isn’t State Run Media talking about the caravan today?
Because Trump and his media hacks played you for racist fools. And what did you do but swallow the bait whole. 🤔

Post-election reality: The caravan is no longer front page news, but mass shootings still are.

Well, coverage of the migrant caravan stopped on November 7.
Just like coverage of Weiner's laptop stopped November 9, 2016.
Just like coverage of Ebola stopped November 5, 2014.
The media's top story is whatever Republicans say it is. Every. Single. Time.

Every Republican voter I spoke to in Texas, without exception, mentioned the caravan & border security as motivating factors in their midterm vote. https://t.co/4QPMZYWnMA

To those media outlets who covered extensively the " the invading caravan" before the election– sometimes on page one — but now have completely dropped reporting on this alleged national security threat, realize how badly Trump played you & don't repeat.
— Michael McFaul (@McFaul) November 8, 2018
While Trump had you focused
on a caravan of immigrants
killed 12 people in a a bar
killed 11 people in a synagogue
sent pipe bombs to other Americans
tried to shoot up a black church
killed black people at a Kroger

My latest: Now that the election's over, Fox News and Trump seem to have lost interest in the caravan.

Trump dropped that Caravan like a second wife who hit her 40's.

This is scary with big potential for violence.
I hope Trump-inspired people like these don’t try to intimidate voters on Tuesday.
According to the Army, the great danger posed by the caravan is that it will provoke domestic terrorists / unregulated militia members into violent action https://t.co/ZRL4w3gxVh

— Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) November 2, 2018
It is … sobering that, years after saturation “what about those emails???” coverage, both NYT and WaPo could be gulled into front-page focus on “caravan” “crisis” manufactured by Trump. (A few thousand people on foot, 1000 miles from US) @Sulliview was, and is, right on this https://t.co/AGWgPxmtYL

The right wing will lie with pictures as well as words. Sad!
Another day, another viral caravan hoax. I reported this to FB earlier today, when it had <10,000 shares. (It's a photo of a border detention center published by @HoustonChron in 2014, nothing to do with caravan.) Still up, and now at 33,000 shares. pic.twitter.com/jo5oT45gPT

A group of Honduran migrants traveling through Mexico toward the United States has attracted lots of attention, including a litany of false statements circulating on social media. Here is a closer look at five widely shared images of the caravan: https://t.co/mUbHyVsdWB

Tons of misinformation about the caravan floating around. This photo of a bloodied police officer has tens of thousands of shares on a few big FB pages. It was taken in 2012, and has nothing to do with the caravan. pic.twitter.com/CPxPBygbRv

Notice Ginni Thomas calls the caravan an invasion. The alleged Pittsburgh shooter called the caravan members invaders so I guess that’s the buzz word on the extreme right.
A photo of bloodied law enforcement officers from 2012 was used to make false claims about the migrant caravan. Here’s Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, helping spread it: https://t.co/03omMOnwPS pic.twitter.com/2bqji6TwwH

1) An important point is getting lost in all the discussion of Trump’s decision to send troops to the border to “protect us” from the migrant caravan.
And we need to recapture it.
