Migrant Caravans Heading North Again

They plan to arrive around January 20th.

It’s been a while since we heard about migrant caravans, such was the success of Trump border security programs. But that’s gone and the resumption of open borders and migrant caravans may be the order of the day. Even in pandemic conditions, Democrats and the Left want open borders. It’s insane. But it will very possibly be the law by the afternoon of January 20th.

 

FNC: “A migrant caravan moving from Honduras toward the U.S. border is calling on the incoming Biden administration to honor what it says are ‘commitments’ to the migrants moving north, amid fears of a surge at the border when President-elect Joe Biden enters office…More than 1,000 Honduran migrants moved into Guatemala on Friday without registering, The Associated Press reported. That is part of a larger caravan that left a Honduran city earlier in the day. The outlet reported that they are hoping for a warmer reception when they reach the U.S. border, and a statement issued by migrant rights group Pueblo Sin Fronteras, on behalf of the caravan, said it expects the Biden administration to take action.”

PSF demands unrestricted rights to enter the United States and said this on Saturday.  “We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility. We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments…A new United States Government is an opportunity to work with the Mexican Government to develop a cooperation plan with Central America to address the causes of migration, together with civil society organizations, as well as an opportunity to increase regional cooperation regarding the persons in need of protection, and to dismantle illegal and inhuman programs such as Remain in Mexico, the United States’ Asylum Cooperation Agreements with El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, as well as the Title 42 expulsions by the United States authorities.” Title 42 expels migrants with seriously Infectious duseases. This group wants a waiver on that. The goal is the same as it always has been, inundate Texas with illegal Democrat voters. It worked in Arizona.

But to open the border to disease, illegal voters, and terrorism may take time. “Processing capacity at the border is not like a light that you can just switch on and off,” incoming Biden domestic policy adviser Susan Rice told Spanish wire service EFE. “Migrants and asylum seekers absolutely should not believe those in the region peddling the idea that the border will suddenly be fully open to process everyone on Day 1. It will not…Our priority is to reopen asylum processing at the border consistent with the capacity.”

Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan responded, “We’re looking at two groups that are well over five thousand. And one of those groups have already gotten through the Guatemala border. And they’re on their way to El Rancho, which is about the located centrally in Guatemala. It’s coming. It’s already started, just as we promised and anticipated it would with this rhetoric from the new administration on the border.”
