    We haven’t been seeing nearly as many migrant caravan stories in the news this winter as compared to the same time one year ago. And there’s a reason for that. It’s because there haven’t been as many migrant caravans, and the ones that did manage to form up haven’t made it very far past Mexico’s southern border. When asked to comment on this trend yesterday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) predicted that there would almost certainly be more caravans, but he sees them growing smaller and less frequent. (Associated Press) President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Friday that...

    As a new migrant caravan makes its way through Central America with the final goal of reaching the U.S., Mexico announced this week that it will not allow passage. Mexico’s Secretary of Interior Olga Sanchez Cordero said no visas or permissions for the caravan will be provided. “We will not have a transit visa or safe passage,” Sanchez Cordero told Expansion Politica. “There will be special enforcement and there will be immigration agents.” However, if caravan migrants want to stay in Mexico, procedures are available. “Mexico is not a country of transit that gives passage, it is a country that...

    Trump has claimed that the countries had "set up" caravans of migrants in order to export them into the United States The United States is cutting off aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, known collectively as the "Northern Triangle," the State Department said on Saturday, a day after President Donald Trump blasted the Central American countries for sending migrants to the United States. "We are carrying out the President's direction and ending FY (fiscal year) 2017 and FY 2018 foreign assistance programs for the Northern Triangle," a State Department spokesperson said in a statement. The department declined to provide...

    You might think that VSG-PDJT is directing the migrant hordes in Mexico for his own purposes. Why else would there be thousands of migrants currently planning to swarm the Texas border where there is no fence, no wall, no official entry point for processing? Mexican authorities in two border states announced the arrival of nearly 2,000 Central American migrants who are part of a caravan headed for the border cities Piedras Negras and Nuevo Laredo. The area between those two municipalities does not feature any type of fencing or barriers like the ones a previous caravan encountered in California. State...

    SALTILLO, Mexico -- More than 2,000 migrants boarded dozens of buses provided by the Mexican State of Coahuila en route to the border city of Piedras Negras, where a shelter with federal resources awaits them. The caravan will arrive at the border on Monday, a day ahead of President Trump’s State of the Union speech – and on the heels of the Pentagon’s announcement that nearly 4,000 troops will be deployed to the region in the coming weeks.

    As the partial government shutdown enters its fourth week and Democrats continue refusing to provide POTUS Donald Trump with a paltry $5.7 billion in funding for his long-promised border wall, another migrant caravan is forming in Honduras. As reported by The Keene Sentinel, the plan is for migrants to set out next week “on a journey that will once again test the immigration policies of Mexico and the United States.” Like last year, word of the new caravan is being spread via social media, the local report noted. “We’re looking for refuge. In Honduras, we are being killed,” a flier...

    When this idea was first proposed it was deemed to be a non-starter right out of the gate. The President wanted migrants presenting themselves at the US border with Mexico to wait in that nation while their applications for entry were processed since detention facilities to hold them on our side of the border were strained well beyond capacity. The previous Mexican administration wanted nothing to do with it and the liberal cohort on our side of the border described it as inhumane.Now, with AMLO in office, we’re seeing yet another shift in policy. The Mexican government seems to be...

    I bet the head of Homeland Security is sitting in his office right about now saying, “How did we not think of this first?”The leaders of the migrant caravan currently parked on the other side of the Mexican border have come up with a brilliant solution to the standoff that’s been going on for quite some time now. They’re tired of waiting to have their asylum claims heard and are unhappy with all of their comrades being arrested when they try to cross the border illegally. So roughly 100 of them have contacted our government with a counteroffer. Just give...
  • Top Dem Says There Hasn't Been 'Adequate Justification' for Troops to Be at the Border

    Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.), the presumed incoming chairman for the House Armed Services Committee, voiced his extreme displeasure after the Department of Defense extended the deployment of active-duty service members on the U.S.-Mexico border. They will stay at the border until January 31.The Department of Homeland Security requested the extension due to the “ongoing threat” of large, and sometimes violent, migrant caravans.“I continue to strongly question the deployment of U.S. military service members at our southern border. Furthermore, the decision to extend this deployment to the end of January 2019 is not a responsible use of Department of Defense resources...

    Following the shocking scenes last week, when hundreds of Central American migrants violently stormed the US Southern Border, a mother from one of the caravans has spoken out to say she was "forced" to join the march toward the border and felt "pressured" to rush the fence. María Luisa Cáceres traveled from Honduras to the US-Mexico border with her 15-year-old special needs son and went to the El Chaparral border area in Tijuana on November 25 to check the status of her asylum number, where she was given the number 1537 and told she had to wait three weeks until...

    Mass migration "lit the flame" of the right-wing populism that is burning up the Old Continent, she said. Europe must "get a handle on it." "Europe must send a very clear message -- 'we are not going to be able to continue to provide refuge and support.'" Should Europe fail to toughen up, illegal migration will never cease to "roil the body politic." And who is the lady who issued the dire warning and dispensed the tough-love advice to Europe? Marine Le Pen? No. It is Hillary Clinton, spouse of the Great Triangulator. Democrats may have piled on Clinton for...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), fresh off her underdog congressional win in New York, is quickly distancing herself from the Trump White House. While the president is sending troops down to the U.S.-Mexico border to prevent the 7,500-strong migrant caravan from entering the U.S., Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Sunday that we have nothing to fear from these individuals who are simply seeking asylum. Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany.It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria.And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central...

    Is this another case of fake news or is the incoming left-wing populist government simply trying to play hardball with Seńor Trump? Hours after the Washington Post reported that a supposed deal had been met to keep the Central American migrant caravan in Mexico as the United States sorts through asylum applications, Mexico's incoming foreign minister denied that any agreement had been reached and that conversations are still continuing. According to the BBC, "Marcelo Ebrard denied reaching an agreement which would see asylum seekers waiting in Mexico while their claims were processed in US courts." Likewise, the man who will serve in president-elect...

    The Washington Post reports that President Donald Trump has reached a deal with the Mexican government to keep the migrant caravan, composed of thousands of Central American asylum seekers, within Mexico as the United States' court system processes refugee applications. The deal known as "Remain in Mexico", would "break with long-standing asylum rules and place a formidable barrier in the path of Central American migrants attempting to reach the United States and escape poverty and violence. By reaching the accord, the Trump administration has also overcome Mexico’s historic reticence to deepen cooperation with the United States on an issue widely...

    TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — Hundreds of Tijuana residents congregated around a monument in an affluent section of the city south of California on Sunday to protest the thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived via caravan in hopes of a new life in the U.S. Tensions have built as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road, and with many more months ahead of them while they seek asylum. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000. U.S. border inspectors are processing...
