    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...
  • Top Democrats ‘Disappointed’ Mexico Tariff Threat Worked, Accuse Trump of Caving to Pressure

    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...

    Rep. Lauren Underwood (D-Ill.) said at a Wednesday congressional hearing that she believes deaths of migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border are "intentional." Her comments, made to Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan as he testified to the House Committee on Homeland Security, come days after the announcement that a Guatemalan teen was the fifth minor to die at the border since December. "With five kids that have died ... the evidence is really clear that this is intentional, it’s a policy choice being made on purpose by this administration and it’s cruel and inhumane," the freshman Democrat, who is...

    Boarder agent explains how boarder policy is what is creating the mess at the boarder. They are not allowed to hold family longer then 21 days and they're crossing by the thousands. His job is to go after the smugglers which they must release because the jails are full. He personally captured the same smuggler six times in the past month an it's happening everyday. He says he catch's maybe 5% right now. He keeps repeating over and over after every story "it's bad is bad" https://youtu.be/daadAu-TE2I?t=224

    Pope Francis donated $500,000 to Mexico-based projects to help migrant communities as media attention has faded, the Vatican said Saturday. The funds will be distributed between 27 projects associated with 16 Mexican dioceses and congregations, all of which asked for help to continue providing food, lodging, and basic necessities to those fleeing their home countries through Mexico. “In recent months, thousands of migrants have arrived in Mexico, having travelled more than 4,000 kilometers on foot and with makeshift vehicles from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. Men and women, often with young children, flee poverty and violence, hoping for a better...

    For some time, I've written here that my Mexican friends south of the border are puzzled with the caravans walking through their country.   For whatever reason, Mexico may be changing strategy.   Yesterday, we learned about the fate of some Central Americans who entered Mexico.  This is from the Los Angeles Times:    Mexican police and immigration officials in the southern state of Chiapas on Monday rounded up hundreds of undocumented Central American migrants headed for the U.S. border.  It's one of the largest raids targeting a caravan since the exodus began last year, and comes as the U.S. ramps up...

    TONALA, Mexico (AP) — Central American migrants traveling through southern Mexico toward the U.S. on Tuesday fearfully recalled their frantic escape from police the previous day, scuttling under barbed wire fences into pastures and then spending the night in the woods after hundreds were detained in a raid.

    Several towns in Mexico where Central American migrants have been congregating are showing the strains of taking care of the mass of humanity. In many cases, the Mexican citizens are as poor and as desperate as the migrants. That hasn't stopped them from demanding money, food, and medicine as the Mexican government struggles to deal with the crisis. Reuters: Hundreds of migrants have been camped out for weeks in Mapastepec, where locals say six migrant caravans have arrived since last Easter. By far the biggest was a group of thousands in October that drew the anger of U.S. President...

    Just in case you were worried that we might run out of illegal aliens that the President could ship to sanctuary cities, fear not. The next caravan from Honduras and Guatemala is on the move in southern Mexico and the number of travelers is increasing. They just received hundreds of additional recruits when a mob of significant size broke through the fences at one border crossing, overwhelming police in the area and moving to join the caravan heading north. Rather than peaceful asylum seekers, authorities described them as being hostile and aggressive. (Associated Press) Mexican authorities said a group...
  • Trump rejects idea of summit with Mexican, Central American presidents

    President Donald Trump said Friday that there was no need for a summit with the Presidents of Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador because "they understand" the implications of his recent move to cut stabilizing aid to the Central American countries. Trump's dismissal of a summit comes in light of a recent uptick in Mexico's apprehensions of migrants at its southern border, shared with Central America. It remains unclear whether the increase was spurred by Trump's threat to shut down the US-Mexico border if Mexico didn't stop migrants from illegally crossing the US border or simply from greater immigration traffic.

    Mexico's top immigration official said Monday the country will not order the militarization of the border with Guatemala as caravans of residents from Central American countries make their way north. Interior Secretary Olga Sánchez Cordero said Mexico will regulate and provide security to migrants from Central America, El Universal newspaper reported. She added that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador's government is "not repressive" and won't militarize its southern border "under any circumstances." Sánchez Cordero's comments follow López Obrador's vow to respond with "peace and love" to U.S. threats to close the U.S.-Mexico border. President Trump vowed in recent days to...

    If you’re not ready, you may as well hide under your blanket because the next caravan is on the way. And once again, we’re not talking about a few dozen stragglers. Reuters is reporting that more than one thousand migrants from various nations have formed up in the southern end of Mexico and have begun the march northward. And since they are already inside the country, the Mexican government is unlikely to do much about it until they reach our border. A caravan of some 1,200 migrants from Central America and Cuba began moving towards the U.S. border from...

    Catch and release is back -- in a big way. Illegal migrants are pouring in now, and borders are apparently non-existent at this point. Here's the Daily Caller report: ICE detainment centers have become so overwhelmed with illegal aliens that the agency has been forced to release over 100,000 migrant family members in the past three months. While speaking to reporters on Thursday, Nathalie Asher, a senior official with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, revealed that her agency has had to reallocate resources as it deals with a “crushing” surge of illegal aliens on the country’s southern border. ICE has not only been forced...

    Last year there were multiple caravans made up of thousands of Central American migrants which made their way to the border. Some of the migrants caught rides on trucks or buses part of the way, but a lot of them also walked a significant portion of the journey, making it a long and difficult trip. Today the Washington Post reports smugglers are perfecting a new approach to bring people to the southern border, one which makes the journey a lot more comfortable and treats smuggling almost as a form of tourism. Criminal organizations in Mexico have mounted a lucrative...

This is a vote for the Constitution and for the balance of powers that is at its core," Romney said in a statement. Romney is the sixth Republican senator to say he will vote for the resolution of disapproval, which is getting a vote in the Senate later Thursday.

    Secretary of homeland security Kirstjen Nielsen told the House Committee on Homeland Security on Wednesday that a surge in illegal immigration is underway at the southern border and will overwhelm U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents if they are not provided additional resources. In February, we saw a 30 percent jump over the previous month, with agents apprehending or encountering nearly 75,000 aliens[.] ... This is an 80 percent increase over the same time last year.

    A transgender woman died this month in her native El Salvador shortly after being deported from the U.S., according to the Salvadoran trans advocacy group Asociación Aspidh Arcoiris Trans (ASPIDH). The woman, Camila Díaz Córdova, 31, joined one of the migrant caravans heading from Central America to the U.S. last year to escape violent threats, Mónica Linares, director of ASPIDH, told NBC News. Linares, who said she had known Díaz Córdova for 10 years, stated that the threats were frequent and dated back to at least 2014, when Díaz Córdova first filed a report with El Salvador’s National Civil Police....
