Hundreds of U.S.-bound Honduran migrants who had entered Guatemala this week without registering were being bused back to their countrys border Saturday by authorities who met them with a large roadblock.
By 5 a.m. Saturday, none of 1,000 or so migrants who had been stalled by police and soldiers remained along a stretch of rural highway remained. Police said that hours earlier, migrants had boarded buses and army trucks to be taken back to the border.
Small groups of fewer than 10 migrants each could still be found walking along the highway before the roadblock Saturday morning.
Olvin Suazo, 21, was walking with three friends, all from Santa Barbara, Honduras.
Were going to continue, he said. We were resting and the bigger group continued. We didnt know what happened to them.
The four, all in their early 20s, are farmworkers. They heard about the caravan that formed earlier this week in San Pedro Sula via WhatsApp and Facebook.
On Friday, over 100 Guatemalan soldiers and police blocked the migrants, who became increasingly frustrated with the lack of food and forward movement after walking from Honduras earlier this week...
Seldom since 2018 had the prospects for a migrant caravan been so discouraging. Guatemalas president saw them as a contagion risk amid the coronavirus pandemic and vowed to deport them. Mexicos president speculated that the caravan was a plot to influence the U.S. elections. And newly formed Tropical Storm Gamma threatened to dump torrential rain on their planned route through southern Mexico.
On Thursday, Guatemalan President Giammattei vowed to return the migrants to Honduras, citing efforts to contain the pandemic...
This week, Mexico has been warning that it will enforce its immigration laws and even prosecute people who knowingly put public health at risk.

The Soros paid phonies, the supposed “huddled masses yearning to be free.
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu.
A big thanks to AMLO, that’s why it’s been a non-starter.
What a difference a year makes!
Yes, he has been a pleasant surprise.
AMLO also understands that a lot of Mexico’s income comes from manufacturing plants near the border that depend on supplies from the US ...
they all operate on “just-in-time” delivery systems, so ANY interruption in that supply really botches things up ...
so Pres. Trump has Mexico in a vice simply by threatening to close the border if Mexico doesn’t cooperate
The really amazing thing is that even Guatemala is falling in line. Its like everyone suddenly understands whats good for them. Truly it must be said of Trump, I cant spare this man. He fights!
There are no crops to harvest for much longer.
Winter is already on the way.
Where is Ann Coulter. This is her number one issue. She should be praising Trump.
The absolute arrogance of these bastards who have NO consideration or respect for America’s borders and immigration laws or the fact that Americans are sick and damned tired of Third World garbage that thinks it has a God given right to just barge in here. I HATE these people for this attitude.
It’s akin to kicking in your neighbors door and demanding you be allowed to live in his home because you think it’s better than yours.
Heard a commentator speculate based on probable 25 million new immigrants who will come in quickly the first few months of a Dem Admin (God forbid). Wall? What’s that?
He said each could bring in relatives such as a man having children with one or more women, and many women having 4-8 children unlike the average in America. So even the low guess of 4 new relatives for each, times 25 equals 100 million new mouths to feed in the US. Each with a new welfare entitlements card and a Dem voter registration.
New immigrants who will need electricity,water,sewage,housing,health care, dental care and food quickly supplied by us. Police, urgent care and emergency staffs unable to cope with that many so quickly. And our workers pushed out so some can get jobs here. And how many dark haired young supposedly “Latino” men coming in freely and unvetted will be armed Muslim terrorists? Border offiers every month find Korans discarded in the mountains of garbage at the borders. Didn’t know so many read Arabic./s
A nightmare. I predict anti-immigrant riots (as happened before in the US and elsewhere many times).
Cloward Piven. Overwhelm the system. Break the system.
Very perceptive. Thanks.
I actually forgot about the 1966 Cloward - Piven Strategy to overburden our entitlement system.
If people here have a few minutes I hope they will read about it online. Nasty people whose evil dreams are coming true tshanks to the current Dems.
Cloward and Piven were buds with Slick Willy.
They are welcome partners in the modern democrat party.
Also in 2008, the CPUSA chose not to run a presidential candidate because the dimrats were so close to their philosophy. Also did not run a candidate in 2012.
Wow. Vultures of a feather stick together.
Pete Seeger once said years after lying to Congress about being a Communist: I don’t need the Party any more. Don’t need them. I’m all through with them. Look at what I wanted from them: rights for blacks, a better life for union members, taking down the evil parts of how America got started. A chance for peace in a world government coming closer. All that has been supplied without the Party.
And then there is no more system for anyone to escape to. Idiots, all of them.
