  • Could Hurricane Eta be the "last straw" for Central Americans considering joining a migrant caravan?

    11/12/2020 11:54:12 AM PST · by 11th_VA · 20 replies
    Hurricane Eta struck the coast on Nicaragua and Honduras as a Category 4 hurricane leaving hundreds of thousands of people homeless. That comes on top of an economic recession due to the pandemic. Now experts fear they feel obliged to leave the country. SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras - Twenty-year-old Andry Pacheco has never had it easy, but he never thought of leaving his country. But now, after losing everything he owns due to flooding caused by Hurricane Eta, he finds himself homeless and often without food, he’s considering migrating for the first time... Eta is the worst natural disaster to...

    Residents of Marin County near San Francisco claimed that a caravan of Trump supporters that rolled through the area reminded them of “terrorists,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Allen-Peirson said she was worried that the Trump convoy had purposefully selected Marin City as a minority-majority community in a county that is 80% white. Marin City has had a strong African American presence since World War II, when many people worked in wartime shipyards.

    Hundreds of Donald Trump supporters gathered in Manhattan on Sunday morning as part of flag-waving convoy to wish the president well as continues his battle with COVID-19 at the Walter Reed Medical Center. A procession of around 100 vehicles packed Fifth Avenue outside Trump Tower this morning, temporarily bringing traffic to a standstill as dozens of MAGA-supporting motorists honked their horns, cheered and waved ‘Trump 2020’ flags. The supporters, from Suffolk County, Long Island, also chanted ‘four more years’ outside the president’s former residence. Many were clad in Trump 2020 and Make America Great Again attire. Very few opted to...

    On Friday, John reported on the return of an unwelcome fall ritual. That would be the start of the migrant caravan season when illegal aliens gather together in huge groups to attempt the trek from Guatemala and Honduras up through Mexico to either try to cross the United States border illegally or present themselves for asylum. (Frequently both if they get caught trying to jump the border.) In this case, roughly 1,000 migrants, primarily from Honduras, formed up and headed through Guatemala toward Mexico’s southern border heading north. By yesterday, their numbers were estimated to have swollen to 2,000....

    Mexico on Friday ordered the military to deploy along its southern border to block a migrant caravan that President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador suggested was linked to the US election. Thousands of mostly Honduran migrants were traveling through Guatemala, heading for the United States via Mexico, just weeks before a tense US presidential vote in which immigration is a key issue. “It seems very strange to us. It’s very strange that this caravan leaves on the eve of the election in the United States,” Lopez Obrador told reporters. “It has to do with the election in the United States. I...

    During his daily news conference, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) said Mexico was “not sucking their thumb” as they prepared for the new migrant caravan that he claimed appears to be more politically motivated rather than a humanitarian cry for help. “We find it very weird, very awkward, that this caravan begins on the eve of the U.S. presidential election,” Lopez Obrador said. “This is too much of a coincidence–how is it that in Honduras, where they have a lockdown, they are allowing this group to form?” Despite the Coronavirus crisis in Central America, an estimated 6,000 migrants...

    Reports from the Honduras-Guatemala border shows large groups of migrants illegally pushing past security personnel. Despite the threat of COVID-19, the migrants forced their way across the border. A tweet released by New York Times video correspondent Brent McDonald shows a “large caravan of Central American migrants fleeing pandemic-induced poverty” pushing their way past Guatemalan border security officials. He reports the group is heading to Mexico — presumably with an intended destination of the U.S. southern border. McDonald reported that Guatemalan border officials expect an additional 3,000 to attempt to enter from Honduras on Friday, raising the total two-day crossing...

    The incident occurred about 11:20 a.m. Aug. 31, when the parade stopped in front of 20544 Ventura Boulevard, Los Angeles Police Department officials said. The scene turned violent when people in a nearby apartment “began to shout and throw glass bottles at the participants,” police said. At one point, one person allegedly pointed a rifle at a participant as the two were arguing. There were no reports of any injuries during the incident and the caravan, which hundreds participated in, continued on its planned route to Studio City, police said. Andrew Allen Young was identified as the suspect who pointed...

    While the world is absorbed in the Coronavirus drama, yet another caravan of illegal immigrants is heading north to the United States from Central America. The group departed recently from the northern Honduran city of San Pedro Sula and is making its way to Guatemala en route to the southern Mexican state of Chiapas. The final destination is the U.S., according to a Mexican news report that reveals the caravan has some 500 Central Americans but is expected to grow along the way. “They left their country due to a lack of work opportunities and prevailing violence,” according to the...

    The Dodge Grand Caravan’s journey is finally ending this spring. The minivan is scheduled to end production on May 22, the automaker has confirmed. The Caravan was introduced alongside the Plymouth Voyager in 1984 as a “garageable” van that helped kick off the minivan craze that continued through the 1990s, until family car buyers started making the shift to SUVs. The stretched Grand Caravan was added to the lineup in 1987 and eventually became the only version offered. The Caravan lived through five generations, with the current one dating back to 2008. U.S. sales topped 300,000 in 1996 and 1997,...

    TACUN UMAN, Guatemala – Chanting “Hon-dur-as! Hon-dur-as! Hon-dur-as!” hundreds of migrants from the first U.S.-bound caravan of 2020 last week showed up at the Puente Rodolfo Robles International bridge in this violent smuggler’s town on Guatemala’s northwestern border with Mexico, always a symbolic turnstile to the American goal line. Mexican officials on the other side had let the hundreds of caravan migrants stacking up here by the hour know they would be allowed to cross in the morning. But visible excitement went negative, then dissipated into disbelief, as I explained to a dozen young male migrants surrounding me of the...

    A new caravan formed in Honduras with about 2,500 migrants traveling toward the U.S.- Mexico border. Saturday the Mexican National Guard stepped up and honored the “safe third country” agreement. The migrants were denied entry into Mexico at the Guatemala-Mexico border. Last November the Trump administration entered into a series of regional agreements with countries including Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador. The goal is to reduce the burden of Central American migrant caravans arriving at the U.S. border. Migrants are being returned to Guatemala, sent back to their home country, or allowed to enter the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP)...

    San Pedro Sula (Honduras) (AFP) - Close to 1,000 people have gathered in Honduras' second city forming a migrant caravan that will soon head for the United States, a human rights activist told AFP. Thousands of Central American migrants have been braving the risk of extortion, kidnap and even murder as they flee poverty and gang violence in their homelands in a bid to reach the American dream, much to the annoyance of US President Donald Trump. "Right now we're close to 1,000 people but there are buses arriving from different parts of the country," Bartolo Fuentes, a journalist, human...

In the last 12 months, a combination of US deterrence policy and a massive Mexican immigration crackdown has destroyed northward movement towards Tijuana... Tijuana looks much different today than it did a year ago. When the caravans first arrived, the international media descended on the city in a swarm; camera flashes lit up shelters. Now, the city has mostly recovered from the chaos of last fall. Migration from the...

    A caravan of roughly 2,000 migrants bound for the United States early Saturday was halted by Mexican authorities only a few hours into their journey, according to officials. The caravan, which consisted of migrants from Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America, left before dawn from Tapachula, a town in southern Mexico near the Guatemalan border, Reuters reported. Many of the migrants who departed from Tapachula early in the morning had been held up there for weeks or months, awaiting residency or transit papers from Mexican authorities. About 24 miles into their journey, federal police and national guardsmen blocked their path....

    by Jenn Carter This year has witnessed an unprecedented invasion of foreigners across the U.S. Southern border, as caravans of migrants and illegal aliens, mainly from Central America have flooded through Mexico en route to a wide-open American border, and totally understaffed and unprepared Border Patrol. The numbers have been an absolute nightmare for the United States, blowing past any prior year on record: On May 31st, President Trump threatened Mexico with massive tariffs on their goods unless they immediately took major actions to stop this invasion. And just 8 days later, Mexico capitulated, agreeing to a broad swath...

    Trump’s success in getting Mexico to agree to do more to curb the flow of illegal immigrants through their country and into the United States should be receiving universal praise, but unfortunately, Democrats, who we all know want to see illegal immigration increase to help secure their party’s power in government, couldn’t concede that Trump’s plan worked. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Trump’s tariff threat, which succeeded in its goal, a counterproductive exercise in “threats and temper tantrums.” “President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor...
