Yeah, today Trump said that people are streaming across the border to take advantage of DACA.

And there are people who follow him who are stupid enough to believe it (but I guess I'm underestimating them.)

As to the "invasion" Trump referred to:

Mexico aids Easter invasion of over 1,000 illegals into US

Mexican officials have aided a "Holy Week" caravan of over 1,000 migrants headed to the U.S. border to demand Easter asylum, according to reports.

Mostly Hondurans, they posted celebration videos on Facebook and chanted "We are migrants. We are not criminals. We are workers."

According to an account from the Center for Immigration Studies, Mexican authorities have allowed the migrants to drive north “with relative ease.”

Researcher Kausha Luna added that the group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, which aids immigrants, bragged about speeding into Mexico. It said, “On Monday Pueblo Sin Fronteras posted a video with the caption, ‘The Refugee Caravan knocking down borders yesterday in Huehuetan! Immigration agents abandoned the post when they saw us coming. The people celebrate this first small victory!"

Locals have also provided supplies along the way.

Their goal is to cross into the U.S. this weekend and demand asylum.

"Demand," of course being the Washington Examiner's word.

Has this been reported by any reputable news organizations or any that didn't get their information from an anti-immigrant propaganda mill?

And unless they're coming over in Doc Brown's DeLoreans and arrive here in 2007, they can't take advantage of DACA--conflating this with DACA like Trump did was meat for a group of idiots and racists.

Is the Washington Post acceptable to you?

Moving in a large group is expected to blunt the efforts of criminal gangs and cartels known to isolate and later rob immigrants, many of whom bring large sums of money to make the long journey north through Mexico. The caravan organizers, Pueblos Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, appeared to have concluded that it is safer for these people to travel together.

Good for them. Organized refugees trying to flee the crime caused by drug money--much of which comes from Americans.

Okay, did the Post's account say that they "bragged" about speeding through Mexico with relative ease or that they were going to demand entry to the US?

Or did it say something more like travelling en masse had kept them safe from banditos and that they were going to ask for asylum once they reach the border?

Gotta do their best to make them sound like a menacing brown horde.

And, I might add, this horrendous horde of Hondurans will be asking for asylum on an individual basis. Not even them illegal alien-loving Democrats would wave an entire caravan through the border unchecked.

You missed the point. Trump was complaining that Mexico was doing nothing to stop them. It's evidently okay to enter Mexico illegally as long as you are just passing through on your way to the USA.

La Opinion is reporting that there are 30 transgender=>women in this caravan applying for asylum. Sorry, LGBQ advocates but that's just comical. Their chances wouldn't be any worse if they were all wearing Hail to the Pendejo T-shirts.
