I lived in Providence, RI for a while. You avoided public transport during non-rush hour simply because the people on it were just awful.

In fairness, the concern isn't that there is 7000 "invaders", but that letting them in will result more making the attempt as well. If the US hadn't been letting in millions of illegal immigrants and/or providing amnesty in the past, this caravan wouldn't formed at all.
