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.

Gov. Ron DeSantis Puts Anti-E-Verify Republicans On Notice

Some Republicans want to water down the proposal.

Published

on

As a battle over a strong statewide E-Verify law heats up in Tallahassee, Florida Governor Rick DeSantis is cautioning Republicans who seek to neuter the law over the ire they’ll face from conservative voters.

Florida is set to pass a E-Verify law that will prevent businesses from hiring illegal immigrants as workers. Currently in the Florida Senate committee process, big business interests are seeking to institute special exemptions for industries that commonly hire illegals.

DeSantis is pushing back hard against the effort to put free passes in the legislation for the agricultural industry. Another area of contention is over the law’s enforcement mechanism. Elements seeking to neuter the Florida E-Verify system want employers to merely promise they aren’t hiring illegals, as opposed to making them definitively prove it.

DeSantis was clear about warning Republicans who try to neuter the e-Verify proposal when speaking to the press outside of the state capital on Wednesday.

DeSantis’ warning to Republicans who tacitly support giveaways of cheap labor and non-enforcement of immigration law should be taken seriously by any legislator who considers themselves a conservative, and relies upon a conservative constituency.

Senator Tom Lee, who represents Florida’s 20th district, is cautioning that Governor DeSantis could veto the entire bill and force lawmakers to start over if they stuff it full of exemptions for scofflaw big business interests. He says that the effort to make employers merely promise to hire illegals is no different than instituting an impotent “honor system.”

The law currently will mandate that businesses in Florida verify their employees’ legal status by July of 2022.
