New Migrant Caravan from Honduras Heads Toward U.S. Border

They’ll arrive just in time for election day.

A new migrant caravan is heading its way to the U.S.

The Wall Street Journal reported that 3,000 Honduran migrants overwhelmed Guatemalan authorities as they made their way into Guatemala on October 1, 2020. They’re on their way to the U.S. southern border, which will likely create another episode of mass migration squawking by the Left in the U.S.

Immigration has been one of the most heated issues during the Trump era, when the administration has made it clear that it is strongly opposed to illegal immigration. By contrast, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden has vowed to halt deportations for 100 days and will only deport felons after this deportation moratorium is complete.

A number of migration experts claim that the caravan will likely be broken up and a small number of migrants will end up making it to the U.S. border with Mexico.

Thanks to President Donald Trump’s pressure, the Mexican government has bolstered its law enforcement against caravans. Earlier in 2020, Mexico detained and deported over 2,000 migrants from a previous caravan that tried to reach the U.S. border. On October 1, Mexico’s immigration agency announced that it would arrest any individuals attempting to enter Mexico in an irregular manner. The current Wuhan virus pandemic has compelled the Mexican government to keep its borders secure from migration waves coming from its southern neighbors.

During an evening press conference, Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei, revealed that he issued an order for Honduran migrants entering Guatemala to be detained and returned to Honduras. Giammmattei called on Honduran authorities to halt the flow of migrants who were entering the country in violation of immigration and health regulations and endangering the health of Guatemalans.

This could prove to be a major test for President Trump now that election day is a month away. One of the bigger policy victories Trump achieved was his “Remain in Mexico” policy that he established with Mexico, whereby southern border crossers claiming asylum are returned to Mexico or their Central American country of origin while they wait for their asylum hearings in the U.S.

Democrats and their ilk would like nothing more than endless caravans to make their way across the American border. Such an influx of migrants would create an enormous future voting base that would secure Democrat power for generations to come. Based on migrant voting patterns and political views, mass migration and the subsequent political integration of migrants could lead to the end of cherished American practices such as free speech and the right to bear arms.

President Trump should stand strong and call on America’s Latin American partners to stop migrant caravans in their tracks. From a long-term perspective, the U.S. will need a fully built walt and mass deportations in order to deter future caravan attempts.

Joe Biden’s DHS Nominee: I Will Stop Construction of Border Wall

Also says he’s not sure what to do with the amount of wall already built.

Published

on

Joe Biden’s pick to be secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Alejandro Mayorkas, has said that he would attempt to stop construction of the US-Mexico border wall if the Senate confirms him to his post.

President-elect Biden has committed to stop construction of the border wall. It would be my responsibility to execute on that commitment, and I have not looked at the question of what we do with respect to the wall that already has been built,” Mayorkas said before the Senate Homeland Security Committee at his confirmation hearing Tuesday.

Senator Josh Hawley, who announced his intention to object to a quick confirmation of Mayorkas, pointed out that Congress approved $1.4 billion in additional wall funds in December, meaning that Mayorkas simply cannot refuse to keep building the wall.

Mayorkas said in response: “What I would need to do is to understand what the law provides with respect to the obligation of funds to construct the border wall and see what the opportunities are to discontinue any such obligations if in fact the law permits.”

Hawley stated that his objection to Mayorkas’ quick confirmation lies in his failure to adequately explain “how he will enforce federal law and secure the southern border given President-elect Biden’s promise to roll back major enforcement and security measures.”

Big League Politics has written about Mayorkas before. When Biden first nominated him, we recalled his oversight of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) at a time of record-breaking immigration levels and his eagerness to rubber-stamp green card and visa worker applications. We also reported on Senator Tom Cotton’s statement back in November that he would vote against Mayorkas’ confirmation.

As it stands, however, Mayorkas will be confirmed even if every Republican voted “no” and every Democrat voted “yes,” for Vice President-elect Kamala Harris holds the tiebreaking vote.

Brace yourselves for the Biden administration’s all-out assault against President Trump’s immigration policies.
