New York state Sen. David Carlucci slammed the caravan and called on state police to charge those involved.

'What was seen in New York was aggressive, dangerous, and reckless behavior by some Trump supporters,' Carlucci said in a statement posted to Twitter.

'The New York State Police should be working to identify these individuals and charging them. We all have the right to show support for a presidential candidate, but we do not have the right to endanger others and break the law,' he said.
