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.

Here’s Where Hispanics Will Play a Decisive Role in the 2020 Elections

In 2020, Hispanics will leave their mark in presidential elections.

During the present election cycle, Hispanics will be the country’s largest ethnic minority in a U.S. presidential contest. 32 million Hispanics will be expected to cast their ballots in the 2020 presidential election. They will make up 13.3 percent of all eligible voters. That said, the number of Hispanic eligible voters is significantly lower than the 60 million Hispanics who live in the country.

Nationally speaking, 62 percent of Hispanic registered voters identify with or lean towards the Democratic Party  On the other hand, 34 percent hold similar inclinations with the Republican Party.

Pew Research Center highlighted five key facts about the geographic distribution of the Latino vote for the 2020 presidential election:

Here are five facts about the geography of Latino voters for the upcoming 2020 presidential election:

1 Two-in-three Latino eligible voters live in just five states. California alone holds roughly a quarter of the nation’s Latino electorate, with 7.9 million Latino eligible voters. Texas is second with 5.6 million, followed by Florida (3.1 million), New York (2.0 million) and Arizona (1.2 million).

2 Latinos make up the highest share of eligible voters in New Mexico (43%). The other top states are California (30%), Texas (30%), Arizona (24%) and Florida (20%).

3 Texas’ 20th Congressional District is home to 359,000 Latino eligible voters, the highest number of any congressional district in the country. Texas’ 16th, 34th and 23rd districts, and Florida’s 26th District, round out the top five, each with at least 321,000 Latino eligible voters.

4 California’s 40th District has the nation’s highest share (80%) of Latinos among its eligible voter population. Texas is home to the next four highest districts, where at least seven-in-ten eligible voters in each are Latino: the 34th District (79%), 16th District (77%), 15th District (73%) and the 28th District (71%).

In 26 congressional districts, Latinos represent at least half of all eligible voters. Most are in California (11 districts) and Texas (eight districts). Florida (25th, 26th and 27th districts), Arizona (3rd and 7th districts), New York (15th District) and Illinois (4th District) also are home to congressional districts that meet this threshold.

5 Only about half of the nation’s 60 million Hispanics are eligible to vote – the smallest share of any racial or ethnic group. While the Hispanic population has grown rapidly in recent decades, many are not eligible voters. More than other racial or ethnic groups, many Hispanics are young (18.6 million are under 18 years old) or non-citizen adults (11.3 million, more than half of whom are unauthorized immigrants).

Hispanics will be one of the key constituents that will play a huge role in American politics from here on out. Despite all the media hype about them being a reliable bloc vote because of the GOP’s  supposedly tough stances on immigration restriction, many Hispanics do in fact support tighter controls on immigration. Additionally, in certain crucial swing states such as Florida, Hispanics are beginning to head on over to the Republican side.

Trump’s national populism, not Hispandering, is key in making sure that Democrats don’t turn the Hispanic vote into a dominate segment of its coalition. All things considered, Hispanics will play a pivotal role in leading Donald Trump  to victory on November 3.
