Just in case you were worried that we might run out of illegal aliens that the President could ship to sanctuary cities, fear not. The next caravan from Honduras and Guatemala is on the move in southern Mexico and the number of travelers is increasing. They just received hundreds of additional recruits when a mob of significant size broke through the fences at one border crossing, overwhelming police in the area and moving to join the caravan heading north. Rather than peaceful asylum seekers, authorities described them as being hostile and aggressive. (Associated Press)
Mexican authorities said a group of about 350 migrants broke the locks on a border gate Friday and forced their way into southern Mexico to join a larger group of migrants trying to make their way toward the United States.
The National Immigration Institute did not identify the nationalities of the migrants, but they are usually from Central America…
The institute said the migrants were acting in a hostile and aggressive way, and accused them of also attacking local police in Metapa, a Mexican village that lies between the border and the nearby city of Tapachula.
This latest group brings the number of migrants in that caravan to well over 2,000. They’re heading toward Tapachula, where authorities expect them to wait to be issued documents allowing them to travel north to the United States. Members of the caravan are complaining that Mexico is slow-walking the admission process as well as the distribution of humanitarian aid.
This latest group may have competition in the race to make it to the US border. There’s already another 2,500 strong caravan stuck further to the west in Chiapas. They are similarly awaiting paperwork allowing them to strike out to the north.

How exactly is this helping the Dems at the ballot box?
Close the border!
These migrants are not innocent people fleeing violence and a lot of them are actually the violent gang members who are terrorizing people in their home countries and who are coming to America to spread a little terror here
Are Democrats getting this news, or just conservatives? Democrats are being told, when it is discussed at all, that these are all poor women with children just wanting to escape violence and male oppression and poverty , just looking for the opportunity to pick organic tomatoes and arugula and maybe clean hotel rooms.
Could it be the same thing is happening that happened when Castro emptied his jails and sent those poor “migrants” to the US?
The Mariel boatlift was a mass emigration of Cubans, who traveled from Cuba’s Mariel Harbor to the United States between 15 April and 31 October 1980. The term “Marielito” (plural “Marielitos”) is used to refer to these refugees in both Spanish and English. While the boatlift was incited by a sharp downturn in the Cuban economy, generations of Cubans had immigrated to the United States before the boatlift in search of both political freedom and economic opportunities.
After approximately 10,000 Cubans tried to gain asylum by taking refuge on the grounds of the Peruvian embassy, the Cuban government announced that anyone who wanted to leave could do so. The ensuing mass migration was organized by Cuban Americans with the agreement of Cuban president Fidel Castro. The arrival of the refugees in the United States created political problems for President Jimmy Carter.
His administration struggled to develop a consistent response to the immigrants, and it was discovered that a number of the refugees had been released from Cuban jails and mental health facilities. The Mariel boatlift was ended by mutual agreement between the two governments in late October 1980. By that time as many as 125,000 Cubans had reached Florida.
You may be right.
The immigration is owned by the democrats they refuse to protect the country little do they know they will never have the power the once had.
Their party is a joke.
Call me cruel but I say “shoot to kill”.
The proper way to respond is a simple, four letter combination of letters and numbers. AH64. Fully fueled and armed. Preferably about a dozen of them.
The word is out. Show up at the US border and you get in. The 2016 election changed rhetoric but not policy.
These are the putative voters that will get them over the top.
It is like a gold rush to them.
Until somebody busts out the tear gas and machine guns this sh!t will continue.
Whether Mexico’s border or ours.
Every illegal immigrant should have a full biometric scan done. Face, stride, DNA, and voice. This data should be published online, and anyone who hires one of them in the USA should be fined heavily fined, and anyone who reports the hiring of one of them should get a reward.
Family values dont stop at the Rio Grande.
Hollywood will be glad to take them.
