Guatemala Gets Serious About Detaining Migrants and Halts Caravan Coming from Honduras

The caravan is blocked.

According to a report by the Associated Press, Guatemala announced that it would detain and deport approximately 2,000 Hondurans on October 1, 2020.

Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei promised that the caravan would be compelled to return to Honduras due to the Guatemalan state’s concerns about the Wuhan virus.

“The order has been given to detain all those who entered illegally, and return them to the border of their country,” Giammattei declared, according to the AP report. “We will not allow any foreigner who has used illegal means to enter the country, to think that they have the right to come and infect us and put us at serious risk.”

In order to halt the caravan, Giammattei revealed that a number of constitutional rights would be suspended in provinces the caravan was expected to reach. At the border, migrants were asked to supply negative Wuhan virus tests and register themselves. Nevertheless, most migrants apparently crossed the Guatemalan border without complying with these demands.

The AP reported that the Guatemalan military set up interior checkpoints to look at migrant’s documents. In addition, the bulk of the migrants were young men. A woman in the group who brought her daughter and granddaughter said she learned about the caravan via Facebook.

Per the AP, the Central American migrants started traveling in large groups as a means to safely travel and avoid paying predatory smugglers. The possibility of the caravan making its way to the U.S. border appears to be slim due to Central American and Mexican governments’ willingness to play ball with the U.S. and start tightening their borders. This was evidenced by Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy. Under this policy, southern border crossers claiming asylum would be ordered to return to Mexico or Central American countries while waiting for their asylum requests to be processed.

One aspect of migration reform policy that must be exploited is interstate cooperation to guarantee stable borders within the Western Hemisphere. Fluid borders in America’s backyard will bring about mass institutional disruption and could wind up exporting Latin America’s perennial state of dysfunction to the states.

The Trump administration is correct in engaging with Central American governments to tackle these issues.

Tom Cotton Calls Out Joe Biden for His Pro-Amnesty Comments at the Last Debate

At Least One Senator Has the Stones To Call Out Democrats’ Immigration Plan to Transform the Country

Published

on

After former Vice President Joe Biden declared at the presidential debate last week that Americans “owe” Deferred Amnesty for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to illegal aliens, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton quickly pounced on Biden’s pro-amnesty declaration.

“We do not owe anything to these illegal aliens,” Cotton said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily interview with Alex Marlow. “They should be grateful that they’ve been tolerated in this country for all these years,” he declared.

This remark came the day after Biden called for a mega amnesty of the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens currently in the U.S.

Biden said:

I am going to send to the United States Congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people and all of those so-called ‘dreamers,’ those DACA kids, they are going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship … They [DACA migrants] have been here — many of them are model citizens. Over 20,000 of them are first responders out there taking care of people during this crisis. We owe them. We owe them.

Cotton was quick to respond to Biden’s remarks:

He didn’t just say that we’re gonna give them an amnesty in the first hundred days — encouraging a rush to our border over the next six months — he said that we have to do it because we owe it to these illegal aliens.

We owe nothing to illegal aliens. We owe a duty to American citizens to help them get back on their feet and get back to work. And that’s true whether you know whether your parents came over on the Mayflower or it’s true whether you came here the right way, the legal way, and just took the oath of citizenship last week. That’s who we owe something to — to American citizens, not to the foreigners.

In Biden’s plan for mass amnesty, there was no real attempt to at least shore up border security or clamp down on visa fraud, which Cotton highlighted:

Biden is saying ‘I’m gonna send an amnesty bill to the Congress in my first hundred days without asking anything in return, without trying to secure our border, without enforcing immigration at workplaces against unscrupulous employers, without cracking down on visa fraud’

In Cotton’s view, the Democrats are “now the party of open borders, mass migration, and blanket amnesty … that’s a big shift and from where the Democrats were just eight years ago.”

Though Cotton has very hawkish views on foreign policy, his immigration views on are in line with Middle Americans. Immigration patriotism would be best served by politicians who prioritize policing our border, ports, and customs office, as opposed to countries who don’t bend the knee to the foreign policy blob’s demands.

When Cotton talks about immigration, he at his best. This issue is of critical importance to America and the GOP’s ability to stay competitive. Not only does mass migration disproportionately benefit Big Capital thanks to the depression of worker wages, it also create a massive voting bloc that will benefit the Democratic Party in future elections.

It’s time for Americans to realize what’s at stake in this election and vote for Donald Trump.
