Migrant Caravan Swells to 12,000 at Mexico’s Southern Border
Breitbart ^ | 1/26/2019 | robert arce

The ranks of a new Central American migrant caravan reportedly grew in size to more than 12,000 as of Friday. The caravan is now heading to Mexico’s southern border.

Mexican immigration officials in the city of Ciudad Hidalgo, which borders Guatemala, are establishing procedures to expedite the process in which to approve one-year humanitarian visas for members of the Central American migrant caravan who are arriving daily. The one-year humanitarian visas, promised by Mexico’s new President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, is a newly adopted policy which allows migrants to legally travel and work during their stay in Mexico.

The new policy of handing out humanitarian visas began on January 17 in response to the new caravan of primarily Honduran migrants who left their home country and headed towards the Mexican border on January 15. Officials originally estimated the caravan’s size at about 2,000. Mexico now claims the caravan’s population swelled to over 12,000 migrants, according to local media and Breitbart Texas sources.

The one-year humanitarian visas, ...

Plenty of time to roam the country of Mexico and then penetrate the USA border on a day of their own choosing! Once in the USA - just claim asylum! A new tactic to take the "invasion" talking point out of the headlines.

Yes, the next step is a buildup of a large enough mass that it will take the armed forces to intercept them. That is the goal, to force the feds to back down. It may have a big opposite effect. This is Trump not WB lover GWB.

I wish we could SEE some of these migrants being returned to their home countries.

If Americans and the new caravans forming saw that it is useless to make the big trek they might think before starting.

I NEED TO SEE IT.

Why can't the Socialist 'Rats just go fix the Central American countries screwed up by Spain?

Populations

Guatemala - 16.91 million (2017)

Honduras - 9.265 million (2017)

El Salvador - 6.378 million (2017)

Belize - 374,681 (2017)

Cost Rica - 4.906 million (2017)

*********

Send all of the refugees to Spain if AOC and her ilk can't fix these places.

This will give the President all the justification he needs to declare a state of emergency and make it stick.

..and SOME U.S. states offer DRIVERS' LICENSES to ILLEGAL ALIENS.

The next time you're STUCK in traffic, THANK THE DEMONRATS IN DC!!!

Also, I just read that the plan to return Asylum seekers BACK to Mexico while they await their court dates HAS BEEN DELAYED. That was set to start YESTERDAY but has been delayed until further notice..

HOW COME EACH AND EVERY RULE, POLICY, LAW, ACTION SEEMS TO FALL IN FAVOR OF THE ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION AND NOT WE AMERICAN CITIZENS????

WTF!!!
