Despite the lies and denials from immigration activists who are actively working to put these treks together, local media reports confirm that an enormous caravan of more than 10,000 Central Americans is expected to land in Mexico City this week. Described by the Mexican Interior Department as “caravana madre” – the Mother of All Caravans – this horde of migrants is only the latest sign that El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras are doing little or nothing to stop the flow of immigrants out of their misbegotten countries.
From the Washington Examiner:
The Human Rights Commission said it is working with the federal government in advance of the caravan’s arrival to ensure migrants have food, shelter, and any access to other services they may require. Beds, covers, bathrooms, and other items have been brought in for the group, according to Diario de Mexico.
The migrants are expected to be housed in the Magdalena, a sports stadium that was used in the 1968 Olympics.
Mexican officials said they have deported thousands of people this month, but 10,000 have made it past federal officers and intend on traveling to the U.S.-Mexico border.
In a tweet on Wednesday, President Trump said the federal government may have to take drastic action to prevent this caravan from breaching our borders.
“A very big Caravan of over 20,000 people started up through Mexico,” wrote Trump. “It has been reduced in size by Mexico but is still coming. Mexico must apprehend the remainder or we will be forced to close that section of the Border & call up the Military. The Coyotes & Cartels have weapons!”
Unlike previous caravans, which consisted mainly of Central Americans, the current group is reported to include immigrants of all stripes, including people from Haiti, Cuba, and even Africa. This demographic makeup not only increases the chances of terrorists and other wrongdoers being mixed into the population but also increases the risk of diseases for which there are no ready cures in place.
Furthermore, it makes a mockery of international asylum laws, which demand that migrants take refuge in the first country that offers them sanctuary. This clause has been conveniently overlooked by Democrats and immigration activists when it comes to Central Americans, many of whom were offered asylum in Mexico. To ignore it now is to give the game away: The point is not to adhere to asylum laws, the point is to flood the U.S. with third-world rejects.
And boy, are they succeeding.
