    Joe Biden is letting one of the largest illegal migrant caravans in history move into the U.S., with no effort to stop it. Texas's governor, Greg Abbott, isn't. According to a very interesting report by Todd Bensman of the Center for Immigration Studies, the record-sized 15,000-strong caravan has run into interference from the Texas governor and his counterpart in the adjacent Mexican state of Coahuila, who had the foresight to sign an agreement in April about border security. Bensman writes: AUSTIN, Texas — When Mexico last week granted federal humanitarian travel permits to 15,000 U.S.-bound third-country migrants who’d formed the...
  • Massive Migrant Caravan Targeting Texas Could Be Biggest One Yet

    With their eyes on Texas, a massive new migrant caravan is underway in southern Mexico. It’s the largest of 2022 and—thanks in part to Mexican government accommodations—it might soon be the biggest one on record. Many previous caravans have crumbled in sometimes-violent confrontations with National Guard troops, or upon reaching internal checkpoints where migrants are prevented from crossing Mexican state borders for lack of visas. However, caravan organizer Luis Villigran told Fox News the Mexican government has committed to start issuing 1,000 temporary work visas a day to the migrants he’s leading northward. That will certainly ease migrants’ progress. At...

    One of the largest migrant caravans of all time is making its way to the U.S.-Mexico border, just as President Biden heads to the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles.The caravan now is 11,000 strong and on Monday departed Tapachula on the Mexico-Guatemala border and the group is expected to swell up to 15,000. Many of the migrants come from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua, three countries whose authoritarian rulers have been left out of this week's summit. On Monday Mexican President Manuel Lopez Obrador confirmed that he would not attend the gathering in protest because leaders from Cuba, Nicaragua...

    One of the largest migrant caravans is headed towards the US. According to a Fox News report, a caravan organizer said Mexican authorities let a group of nearly 10,000 depart from Tapachula, Mexico on Monday. The migrants are making the dangerous trek in anticipation of the Biden administration ending the Trump era public health order Title 42 at the border. “We consider we are around 9,500,” said caravan organizer Luis Villagran. “People keep on joining. In the first police check there were approximately 100-150 national guard, INM, state police and they let us through freely.” One Migrant said Biden “promised...

    What could become the largest migrant caravan ever to approach the U.S. southern border had formed in Mexico and was expected to begin heading north Monday. About 11,000 migrants gathered in Tapachula, a city on the Mexico-Guatemala border, with the intention of marching toward the U.S., The Guardian reported. The caravan's numbers were expected to grow in the coming days, and could reach 15,000 people, The Guardian said. News of the caravan came as the migrant surge under President Joe Biden continued to skyrocket. More than 234,000 migrants were intercepted at the southern border in April, breaking the previous month's...

    Gov. Abbott should use the power he has under the U.S. Constitution to repel the invasion crossing Texas’s border every single day.In light of President Biden’s announcement he’s ending Title 42 removal authority at the southern border, last week Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced what he called “unprecedented” actions to stop the flow of illegal immigration. The first part of his plan, while lauded as aggressive, unfortunately falls short of unprecedented and won’t stop the invasion at the southern border. It’s true: the end of Title 42 will ensure a catastrophic surge of illegal immigration heading into the warmer spring...

    In October, the caravan violently pushed through a national guard roadblock in Mexico. Irineo Mujica, a member of a “pro-migrant” organization, is quoted as saying “with or without papers, we’re ready for war.” “It’s true that if they are pushed back into Mexico or halted by the Mexicans, that they will riot. They do get out of hand,” security expert Todd Bensman, with the Center for Immigration Studies, said. “They might try to charge the bridges. They may try to charge over some spot in the river.” Bensman adds that the White House is largely ignoring the threat, making it...

    AMexican activist leading a caravan of over 1,000 Central American migrants announced that his group expects to meet up with a caravan that's 10 times larger, Border Report writes. The two aim to converge and then proceed toward the U.S.-Mexico border. The organizer, Irineo Mujica, said that the caravans expect to meet in Veracruz on November 18. From there, they will head toward the Arizona-Mexico border. This deviates from the original plan to end this journey—which started near the border of Guatemala—in Mexico City. "We are not going to Mexico City, we are now going the northern border....

    The leader of an effort by Central American migrants to walk across southern Mexico said Monday the group will now head to the U.S. border, rather than Mexico City as originally planned. Leader and immigration activist Irineo Mujica said in a video that he will try to organize another caravan of thousands of migrants to reach the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, where both groups will join up and set out for the border. The apparent change in plans comes after Mujica said the group has been pursued and harassed by Mexican government officials. Relations deteriorated after a group of...

    Members of a migrant caravan violently assaulted a Mexican federal police officer, beating him as he lay unconscious and then stripped him of his gear. The brutal incident happened as federal forces tried to stop the caravan from leaving Chiapas and moving north. The clash took place this week along a highway in the southern part of Chiapas where hundreds of Central American migrants were trying to walk north. Mexico’s National Guard used riot gear as they tried to stop the caravan.

    The biggest migrant caravan since the start of the pandemic is heading towards the US, with an estimated 4,000 people walking through Mexico towards the border. The group of mostly Central Americans, branded the 'mother of all caravans' is trekking through Chiapas state in southern Mexico but their progress has been hampered by the large number of children in their group.

    HUIXTLA, Mexico (AP) — A growing migrant caravan set out early Wednesday after a day of rest on its trek across southern Mexico. About 2,000 migrants had walked out of the southern city of Tapachula near the Guatemala border on Saturday. While the multitude is challenging to count, it appeared significantly larger Wednesday and its leaders estimated its size at 4,000. “The caravan is like a magnet, it goes sucking up people, migrants who had been in the towns (of coastal Chiapas) are joining,” said Irineo Mújica, an immigration activist with the organization People without Borders. One of them was...

  • Democrats Choose Illegals Over Americans

    It is a simple choice with only two options for Democrats: do they favor Americans or illegal aliens? Every time they’ve been given the choice, Democrats choose illegal aliens. So why would anyone be surprised that they’re doing it again when it comes to COVID? I don’t care for writers to quote themselves extensively, but in this case I have to. I also have to say “I told you so,” another thing I’m not a fan of. But both are necessary for this because I’ve already written about this and, honestly, I told people so. In December, I wrote a...

    Guatemalan security forces have clashed with hundreds of Honduran migrants and asylum seekers travelling in a caravan bound for the United States. Police and soldiers, many wearing helmets and wielding shields and sticks, formed ranks on Saturday across a highway in the village of Vado Hondo, Chiquimula, near the Honduras border, to block the procession of migrants. snip------ Guatemala’s officials said as many as 9,000 migrants and asylum seekers have entered the country since Friday. About 6,000 pushed past about police and soldiers posted at the border on Friday; most entering without showing the negative coronavirus test that Guatemala requires....

    Two of every three Americans want the federal government to block the caravans of migrant workers from Central America, says a Rasmussen Reports poll. The opposition among likely voters is deep and broad — except among liberals and people who earn above $200,000 per year. The poll asked: “Should the U.S. government stop all of the migrants in the Honduras caravan from entering, or should it allow them to enter this country temporarily until each of their cases can be individually reviewed?” The sample of 880 likely voters opposed the entry of the migrants by 60 percent to 30 percent....

    Returned Honduran migrants are directing anger against their president this week after their U.S.-bound caravan was blocked by the region’s security forces, accusing him of making their county unlivable while thwarting their escape to a better life. Honduras is reeling from two back-to-back hurricanes that devastated Central America in November, as well as an historic economic contraction on the back of coronavirus pandemic. President Juan Orlando Hernandez has also been under fire from U.S. prosecutors that have accused him of having ties to drug cartels, an allegation he has strongly denied. An estimated 8,000 Hondurans sought to flee this week...
