The caravan moving north toward our border is a serious threat to the sovereignty of the United States. It is a blatant challenge to the rule of law. For this reason we sent our Director of Investigations and Research Chris Farrell and Judicial Watch Investigator Reporter Irene Garcia to Guatemala to uncover the truth about caravan. Here is their first report in our Corruption Chronicles blog.
The migrant caravan marching northbound through Central America is an elaborately planned movement thats benefiting human smugglers and bringing disturbing numbers of violent gang members and other criminal elements through Guatemala, according to government sources in the capital city.
MS-13 gang members have been detained and coyotes (human smugglers) are joining the march with clients who pay to get smuggled into the United States, a Guatemalan official told Judicial Watch. People from Asian countries waiting to get smuggled into the U.S. through Central America are also integrating with poor Hondurans in the caravan, a high-level Guatemalan government source confirmed. Among them are nationals of Bangladesh, a south Asian Islamic country thats well known as a recruiting ground for terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda Indian Subcontinent (AQIS). There are lots of dirty businesses associated with this, Guatemalan authorities told Judicial Watch. Theres lots of human trafficking.
Sandwiched between Honduras and Mexico, Guatemala has been overrun with the onslaught of migrants that began their journey last week in the northern Honduran city of San Pedro Sula. At last count around 7,000 have participated in the trek, a great deal of them rowdy, angry men ages 17 to 40 . President Jimmy Morales has ordered the military and police to detain all of the migrants and facilitate their safe return back to Honduras, though thousands have already reached the Mexican border. In a morning interview with Judicial Watch at the Guatemalan Ministry of Defense, Secretary of Defense General Luis Miguel Ralda Moreno said more than 2,000 Hondurans have been sent back home on buses. Were doing everything possible to stop the caravan while still respecting human rights, General Moreno said.
During an afternoon interview at the National Palace, President Morales said that Guatemala has absorbed the huge cost of mobilizing police and military to return thousands of people to Honduras. He would like the United States to help him find the organizers of the caravan so they can face legal consequences. Mass immigration like this endangers lives, Morales said. This is unprecedented. We are in the process of investigating who is behind the caravan. Morales assures that Guatemala is doing everything possible to curb illegal immigration and asked for cooperation from the United States.
It has been a delicate and complicated task, Guatemalan officials say, because the caravan is a very organized movement that has been well orchestrated. There are rest points along the route with food, water and shelter for the migrants as well as medical care in some areas. Its very strategic and extremely organized, a Guatemalan government source told Judicial Watch. It is very complex, not a simple march. There is nothing spontaneous about it. During a visit to the Guatemalan-Honduran border this week Judicial Watch interviewed multiple migrants who repeated the same rehearsed line when asked who organized the caravan, insisting it was a spontaneous event even though there were clearly organizers shouting instructions in Spanish and putting select persons in front of cameras for interviews. All of them said the caravan was not about politics but rather poverty.
Guatemalan officials disagree, estimating that the caravan is a movement of radicalized forces to destabilize Central American countries. Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández, a conservative, echoes that assessment. In a local newspaper report published last week Hernández asserted that leftist interests seeking to destabilize the country are manipulating migrants. Women and children are being used without regard to the risks to their lives, Hernández said. The irregular mobilization was organized for political reasons to negatively affect the governance and image of Honduras and to destabilize the peace of neighboring countries, the president said, adding that many have returned to the country after realizing theyve been fooled.
Too much of the media and the open borders crowd are tying to fool Americans but this will be harder thanks to Judicial Watchs educational efforts.
We have been reporting for years that many of those crossing our southern border arent innocent women and children, but rather hardened criminals and even terrorists. Why would this current caravan be any different? Our team on the scene in Guatemala (see above) has this disturbing exclusive report :
Besides gang members and mobs of young angry men, the Central American caravan making its way into the United States also consists of Africans, Bangladeshis, Sri Lankans and Indians. Judicial Watch is covering the crisis from the Guatemalan-Honduran border this week and observed that the popular mainstream media narrative of desperate migrantsmany of them women and childrenseeking a better life is hardly accurate. Guatemalan intelligence officials confirmed that the caravan that originated in the northern Honduran city of San Pedro Sula includes a multitude of Special Interest Aliens (SIA) from the countries listed above as well as other criminal elements and gang members.
There are also large groups of men, some with criminal histories, aggressively demanding that the U.S. take them in. During a visit to the Guatemalan town of Chiquimula, about 35 miles from the Honduran border, Judicial Watch encountered a rowdy group of about 600 men, ages 17 to about 40, marching north on a narrow two-lane highway. Among them was a 40-year-old Honduran man who previously lived in the United States for decades and got deported. His English was quite good, and he said his kids and girlfriend live in the U.S. Another man in his 30s contradicted media reports that caravan participants are fleeing violence and fear for their life. Were not scared, he said waving his index finger as others around him nodded in agreement. Were going to the United States to get jobs. Others chanted vamos para allá Trump! (Were coming Trump) as they clenched their fists in the air. We need money and food, said a 29-year-old man who made the trek with his 21-year-old brother.
All of the migrants interviewed by Judicial Watch repeated the same rehearsed line when asked who organized the caravan, insisting it was a spontaneous event even though there were clearly organizers shouting instructions in Spanish and putting select persons in front of cameras for interviews. A few claimed they heard about it on local news in Honduras. All of them said the caravan was not about politics but rather poverty. I just want to get back to the U.S., said a 32-year-old man who admitted he has been deported from the U.S. twice. We are all just looking for work. The group radiated a sense of empowerment. One marcher, who appeared to be in his late teens, yelled you go live in Honduras and see what its like!
Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández, a conservative, said in a local newspaper report that leftist interests seeking to destabilize the country are manipulating migrants. Women and children are being used without regard to the risks to their lives, Hernández said. The irregular mobilization was organized for political reasons to negatively affect the governance and image of Honduras and to destabilize the peace of neighboring countries, the president said, adding that many have returned to the country after realizing theyve been fooled.
Guatemala is overwhelmed with the sudden onslaught and immigration officials confirmed 1,700 migrants have been returned to Honduras on buses. The first wave of migrants totaled about 4,000, according to Guatemalan government sources, followed by a second, less organized group of about 2,000. The impoverished Central American nation needs help, including logistical, communications and civil affairs support to stop the human caravans. There are only so many resources we can dedicate to this, said Guatemalan Secretary of Strategic Intelligence Mario Duarte. Guatemalans are getting robbed and crimes are being committed by the people in the caravans, Duarte said.
You can be sure that Judicial Watch will use its resources to monitor and investigate the border crisis and give you the unvarnished truth about this existential threat to our sovereignty and the rule of law.
This caravan/invasion doesn’t even pretend to be pro-American. They fly their own flags and condemn/challenge President Trump. They must be met with all necessary force.
Off the Wall Ping!
Contact to be added.
It is high time that we tell our “representatives”, in no uncertain words, that we are not going to stand by and do nothing. If the caravan enters the US in violation of our laws, then we will not obey any laws.
More undocumented Democrats. All the more to carry out violent criminal attacks on Americans.
They will gain entry into the U.S. President Trump will talk a good game, but in the end https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hIcKkKID8k
Due to a recent Supreme Court decision, it is very clear that the President has the authority to do whatever he wants to secure the country. The democrats/ judges took their shot and lost.
It is NEVER over for the left. All they need is a 'rat judge to rule the caravanistas can come in. They will be allowed in until the whole thing ends up at the SCOTUS again in a year or two. SCOTUS will rule in favor of the Trump administration but the illegals will NEVER be sent back.
Rinse and repeat.
Not at all. President Trump can tell any judge to pound sand.
Jeff, lol, you may, in the end, be right. But, I think that most freepers agree with me that “Trump” can be trusted to not let that happen.
My dad used to tell me a long time ago in situations like this...”son, there’s a long way to slip between the cup and the lip”. And these 14,000 pawns of The Left have a lonnnnngggg way to go.
I guarantee you that “No Sleep Trump” is meeting with his most capable people, civilian and military, and they are formulating a PLAN.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
Nice to know we're getting some help with this horror...
R U shur he’s not just asking for a few more million bucks ?
There are Honduran flags, Guatemalan flags and Mexican flags. All flags of where they claim has done them wrong. But not a single US flag to be seen anywhere.
They’re timing the border assault for the election. A couple days ago, one group was north of Mexico City and within 500 miles of McAllen, TX but they’re going to head to CA. Another group is still south of Mexico City and were in Arriaga, Mexico yesterday. Arriaga is the crossroads to determine which direction they’ll turn. Watch and see if they don’t turn toward Texas so they all hit the border at the same time.
The demonrats are counting on swaying the vote. If they’re allowed in, Trump loses his supporters. If there’s a violent confrontation, Trump is labeled the bad guy. Either scenario is a win for the swamp.
Along with troops, Trump should station judges at the border. Instead of catch and release, hold court right then and there. Rubber stamp each with deportation orders. Have military planes ready to drop them back in their own countries. Or, better yet, drop them all at Terminal Aerea on the Honuras/Nicaragua border for pay back.
Stop this from happening time after time. Get a conservative judge today to rule they can’t come in.
Don’t hold your breath.
Stop all funding to every country to our south. Might as well cut all funding to the world.
Force? In what form?
If you're picturing our military manning the border, guns ablaze, cutting down bodies like a machete through sawgrass, that's simply a fantasy that will never happen.
If not that, then what other sort of force? Tear gas and non-lethal high tech crowd control devices? Perhaps, but we've already been told that our military is being deployed to the border to provide tents and logistical support to the Border Patrol.
I'm not trying to pour cold water on your fighting resolve -- I'm just trying to cooly assess this situation in a rational manner. In essence, what's it really going to take to stop the horde?
The fact that they are not an armed force precludes the use of lethal weapons and tactics. That virtually eliminates our military as a useful contingent, so what other options do we have?
I would submit that the most effective way to repel the invaders (under these unique circumstances) is to suspend their 'right' to claim asylum in order to game our system.
Lacking that 'right', there is no way for them to bypass our established law enforcement measures and apparatus. They can be physically apprehended and repatriated to Mexico, or their countries of origin.
This will require the President to issue an immediate executive order, temporarily suspending that 'right'. It's been reported that the President and his advisers are currently considering such a move.
In my mind, it's the surest way to stop the horde in its tracks, and prevent them from melting away into the existing illegal alien population.
Trump cannot afford to lose this one decisive battle. If he caves and let's them in, he's toast, and so is the MAGA agenda. America itself will soon follow.
He has it in his power to issue an executive order temporarily suspending the granting of asylum requests by anyone illegally crossing our borders.
Taking that away from the invaders is the key to unlocking the power of our law enforcement agencies and Border Patrol, who currently have their hands tied by this suicidal immigration policy.
Once issued, our Border Patrol can detain the invaders for documentation and immediate deportation. Setting foot on our soil will no longer automatically give the invaders a surefire method to legally game our immigration system.
We need that executive order now.
