That didn’t take long. With President Donald Trump leaving office (we guess) and Joe Biden getting ready to move in (until Harris takes over), a huge migrant caravan is already on its way here and expected/demanding cooperation from Biden like he PROMISED.
“We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility,” a statement from a migrant rights group said on behalf of the caravan. ” We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments.”
Here’s more from the Daily Mail.
As many as 3,000 Hondurans set off on foot Thursday for the Guatemalan border in hopes of reaching the United States, setting up a possible test of the incoming Biden administration’s immigration policies just as a tough-on-migrants Donald Trump is set to leave office.
The people in the caravan likely are hoping to take advantage of what Biden has promised will be a more ‘humane’ approach to immigration, but officials from countries along their route to the US say they’ll be stopped before they reach America by governments – including Mexico’s – that have stepped up efforts to halt the caravan.
And here, from Fox News.
A migrant caravan moving from Honduras toward the U.S. border is calling on the incoming Biden administration to honor what it says are “commitments” to the migrants moving north, amid fears of a surge at the border when President-elect Joe Biden enters office.
Quick question: Y’all think these caravans are full of people wearing masks, observing social distancing, and signing up for the vaccine?
