GUATEMALA-MEXICO BORDER Approximately 1,000 Central American migrants in the newest caravan have begun the process of crossing into Mexico from Guatemala, a Mexican immigration official stationed at the border between the two countries told Fox News on Thursday night. A new process instituted by Mexico means that migrants will have to wait five days for their paperwork to be processed before entering the country. The new system is meant to keep things orderly after the last caravan rushed the border
Julia Escalon, 43, of the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula, rested under the shade of a tree on the Guatemalan side, cradling her 2-year-old daughter in her arms. Escalon brought along a total of four daughters on the trip. "In San Pedro, we have nowhere to live. We can't even afford to rent a place," Escalon told The Associated Press. "I'm going to fulfill my dream and get to the United States."
However, that may not be easy. The border city of Tijuana was saturated by the first caravan in November, testing the patience of the city's residents, and Mexico's new government has since agreed to house third-country migrants while their asylum claims are heard in the United States.

I’m going to make this a two-fer. Here’s a short article about a coyote dump of a group of 247, most of which needed medical care. If we consider that each person was taken to the hospital, and a minimum charge to the govt of $1,000 per person seen, that’s $247,000 for the one group, on just the one night, plus any continuing care.
If our BP are running an endless stream of people to the hospital, how can they patrol the border, too?
Your dream and our nightmare, lady.
What gives you the right? You admit you have nothing - hence you will expect your basic needs (and those of your kids) to be met by someone else.
Go home - mooch there.
Invasion,colonize,destroy..there are many historic examples of this.....old testament Israel....when being judged by Jehova..
Something to think about.
No pix no clicks
Live TV coverage 5 minutes ago show that no Mexican police
are on the border to stop border crossings.
I am sure Trump wants Mexico to let them come so the optics and stories next week will be all about the invasion.
Pelosi will have to admit there is a big problem and the news networks will be covering it since it will be such a great story.
I can see the polls shifting to Trump from those who drank the Dem Coolaid that a wall isn’t needed, and there is no border crisis.
Other than Fox, I don’t think the networks will show much of it.
Hmm...you may be on to something. If I recall correctly, Trump and the new Mexican president get along, and Mexico lately doesn’t seem to be happy with the illegal immigration situation either now.
The networks covered the current border chaos and the new Caravan probably be larger if Mexico allows unimpeded migration of illegals to cross Mexico.
I am sure this is well funded and buses will be providing transit to our border.
The public opinion will change and demand a wall.
New poll shows Trump Latino support at record high, and I believe blacks don’t like more low wage competition coming in to take their jobs. These two key Dem voting groups could upset Dems plans to import more voters at the expense of American minorities.
Like they all peacefully submitted paperwork, then waited for approval to rush the border gates and invade.
One America News on Direct TV is just about 24/7 pro-Trump. Its the only Tee-Vee I’ve watched in over a decade.
Wise up Americans....Build that Wall yourself by giving a small ($5.00-$100.00 contribution) donation to the USAF, Hero, Brian Kolfage’s “Fund the Wall Campaign” with private funds. Join hundreds of thousands fellow Americans that have already made their donations.
Contribute today...”ALL” Americans & support the wall, that will provide safety, security, pro-active protective action on the Southern USA Border and stand behind our great POTUS, Donald J. Trump...!00%.
Other than Fox, I dont think the networks will show much of it.
And Fox will blame it on President Trump. They suck just like the rest of them these days.
“Process of entering” = invading
So she had a baby when she was 41 years old? Okay, got it...
And that’s what needs to be done. The true math needs to be calculated and shared with this mess.
Enjoy walking about 1,200 miles, assholes - Mexico currently has a huge gasoline and diesel shortage, owing to their President’s shutdown of all oil pipelines because of massive thefts of oil that could only occur with the cooperation of those at the top of Pemex. If Mexicans can’t get gas in Mexico, Guatemalans aren’t going to get it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ And Fox will blame it on President Trump. They suck just like the rest of them these days.
I can't speak to the other shows/hosts...but Tucker sure wouldn't.
**** Keep in mind, these numbers represent those who were caught. How many were not caught? ****

How many actually showed up for any kind of immigration hearing? Less than 10%? How many are actually deported? Less than 5%?
That also doesn't take into account those who are NOT apprehended.
We were told for years that there were 11 million foreign nationals in our country unlawfully. It was a lie.
And 22,000,000 undoubtedly, is under estimated as well.
That's more people than the ENTIRE state of Florida, and darn near as many as the whole state of Texas! An entire large state's worth of foreign nationals who have disrespected our sovereignty and rule of law and are living here illegally, many (most, who really knows?) receiving taxpayer paid for housing, food, medical, dental, legal, schooling and other "welfare."
According to a recent Gallup "World" poll, 158 MILLION people would "immigrate" to the United States if they could.
For the "average" Mexican perhaps...but the George Soro's types will make sure the caravan of invaders have all the food, fuel and transportation they need.
