Here We Go Again: Another Honduran Migrant Caravan Launching in January

Published

on

According to multiple reports, a new caravan of illegal aliens will leave Honduras at the beginning of 2019 an march towards the southern United States border.

“Another migrant caravan — with estimates of as many as 15,000 participants — is preparing to leave Honduras on January 15, according to migrant rights advocates and Spanish-language media,” the San Diego Union-Tribune said.

The news comes during a heated battle over border security which has forced a partial government shutdown. President Donald J. Trump has refused to reopen the government until Democrats sign off on the dotted line to provide $5 billion for a desperately needed border wall.

According to the report, Irma Garrido, a member of an advocacy group for migrants called Reactiva Tijuana Foundation, said that this caravan expects to pick up far more members en route to the United States than the last one.

“Garrido said this new, larger caravan will likely be joined by more people in El Salvador and in Guatemala, but she said they don’t plan on coming straight to the Tijuana-San Diego border, where resources are already stretched nearly to a breaking point,” according to the reprt.

Thousands of attempted invaders from the last migrant caravan are still camped out at the border waiting for asylum claims to be processed.

The report also said the Mexico’s new president has promised Central American workers visas and work. Hopefully, they will take him up on this offer.

“Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has pledged visas and work in Mexico for Central American migrants,” the Tribune reported. “In his inauguration speech, he pledged public works projects like planting two million trees and construction of his Maya Train, a 1,500-kilometer railroad.”

There was much commotion about the first migrant caravan that careened toward the border just before the midterm elections in November. The climax of that surge of invaders occurred when 500 or so members of the caravan attempted to storm the border. Many who were caught were deported reportedly from Mexico.

Now would be the perfect time for Trump to build that big, beautiful wall.

Coronavirus Stimulus Contains Whopping $350 Million Refugee Resettlement Boondoggle

This has nothing to do with the virus, or the economy.

Published

on

It appears that a $350 million dollar appropriation for purposes of “Migration and Refugee Assistance” managed to slip inside the coronavirus stimulus package.

Populist commentator Ryan Girdusky first reported on the hidden boondoggle as the legislation was being prepared for a Senate vote Wednesday night. It’s one of several unrelated pork planks in the massive $2 trillion stimulus that was able to slip in without the scrutiny of Republican senators.

The proposal to enrich refugee resettlement contractors appears to have migrated into the legislation originally introduced by Mitch McConnell from Nancy Pelosi’s rivaling proposal. The Speaker of the House had temporarily derailed the stimulus package by introducing a plan of her own, but from the looks of it, she’s getting a crucial element of the left-wing social agenda Democrats have tried to tie to the stimulus with the refugee resettlement package.

Florida’s Matt Gaetz appears to be one of the few members of Congress to question the totally unrelated refugee giveaway in the moment of legislative urgency.

Nominal charitable and non-profit entities have gamed and rigged the American refugee resettlement process for years, enriching themselves to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars if not more on the taxpayer dime. Migration skeptics have long questioned the utility of such an arrangement, pointing out that spending hundreds millions of dollars to resettle people in the United States could be used to far greater effect in providing relief for displaced peoples closer to their homes countries.

Existing refugee resettlement programs have continued in spite of the raging coronavirus pandemic. More than 3,000 people have been resettled in the United States since January, when the disease began surfacing on the radar of the federal government.

The Washington D.C. Swamp appears to have succeeded in utilizing one of its oldest cards in this instance, attaching a totally unrelated refugee proposal to a sorely needed economic relief package. It’s likely the proposal would have shot down on other circumstances, but congressional Democrats ultimately proved tactful enough to advance their preferred and entirely unrelated special interest in a moment of great legislative urgency.
