The largest yet of the so-called migrant “caravans” could be forming in Central America shortly, according to reports from the Mexican government.
Mexico’s Interior Secretary, Olga Sanchez Cordero, has warned of the possibility that a caravan with up to 20,000 migrants could soon arrive in her country with the intentions of traveling to the United States.
On Wednesday the Mexican government official claimed she had received information about such a group forming in the Central American nation of Honduras.
“We have information that a new caravan is forming in Honduras, that they’re calling ‘the mother of all caravans,’ and they are thinking it could have more than 20,000 people.“
This would be the largest single caravan yet, as even the biggest groups of Central American migrants had around 7,000 people. Formations of migrants of that size tended to decline in numbers as they progressed to the U.S-Mexico border, and there’s reason to believe a caravan of 20,000 couldn’t be supported by existing infrastructure.
Operatives linked to billionaire oligarch George Soros have been previously involved in providing resources and organization to migrant caravans. It remains unclear if Soros-linked networks have the capacity to support migrant caravans of the size estimated by Cordero, however.
Cooperation between the governments of the United States and Mexico is essential to properly and effectively deterring the threatening and costly voyages of Central American caravans. Citizens of Mexico have become increasingly irritated by the large groups of migrants traveling through their country, who often pose a criminal threat, requiring efforts from Mexican government officials such as Cordero to prevent them from coming.
Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
