‘God’s army’ promised to bring 700,000 trucks to the border. They’re 699,950 short

‘God’s army’ promised to bring 700,000 trucks to the border. They’re 699,950 short

As Texas Gov. Greg Abbott duels with the Border Patrol and the Supreme Court over his right to drown migrant children with the help of razor wire, Republican governors have been sending in the troops to back the state’s horrific efforts. But that isn’t good enough for most of the MAGA contingent. Online organizers calling themselves ”Take Our Border Back” have been promising to bring ”over 700,000” semitrucks from across the United States and Canada to three locations along the southern border so they can fight the “illegal invasion.” 

The average semi is over 72 feet long, so 700,000 of them would represent 9,545 miles of 16-wheelers. That would be enough to line the entire U.S.-Mexico border almost five times over. Only it looks like the convoy is going to be about 9,544.5 miles short of its goal. Because as the convoy departed for the border cities of: Eagle Pass, Texas; Yuma, Arizona; and San Ysidro, California, only a few dozen participants had turned up. 

There are two good reasons for the shortfall: 1) the organizers were lying from the start and 2) these “patriots” are all so unstable they became convinced that their own convoy was an FBI sting operation.
