CARAVAN CRISIS: Thousands Abandon Caravan, Apply for Asylum in Mexico

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.25.18

At least 1,700 Central American migrants have abandoned the “caravan” slowly making its way towards the United States; either applying for asylum in Mexico or accepting government offers to transport them to their countries of origin.

According to the Associated Press, thousands of undocumented workers from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador are abandoning their 1,500 mile journey north due to weather, sickness, lack of food, and exhaustion.

“We got hit by rain, and ever since then I’ve had a cold,” said one immigrant. “No. I’m going to make my life in Honduras.”

“We didn’t know what lay ahead,” said another. “We want to return to our country, where you can get by — even if just with beans, but you can survive, there with our families, at peace.”

The caravan has progressed just 95 miles into Mexico since crossing the border late last week. They remain over 1,000 miles from the United States.

The migrant caravan slowly making its way towards the United States’ southern border with Mexico continued to grow in recent days, with local reporters saying the marching immigrants are now estimated at 14,000 individuals.

According to Newsweek, the “caravan” is gradually gaining more members as it makes its way north towards American border crossings in Texas and California.

“In a series of tweets, President Donald Trump has unsuccessfully urged Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to halt the migrant caravan, which is believed to have reached more than 14,000 members in southern Mexico,” writes Newsweek.

The President has routinely warned the migrants to return to their home countries in recent days, saying “We are a great Sovereign Nation. We have Strong Borders and will never accept people coming into our Country illegally!”

CARAVAN CRISIS: Trump Threatens to Cut Honduras Aid Over ‘Growing’ Migrant Caravan

President Donald Trump warned Honduras Tuesday that his administration is prepared to cut aid to the Central American country should they fail to crack down on a second migrant caravan making its way towards the United States’ southern border.

“The United States has strongly informed the President of Honduras that if the large Caravan of people heading to the U.S. is not stopped and brought back to Honduras, no more money or aid will be given to Honduras, effective immediately!” tweeted the President.

The second caravan this year reached 3,000 migrants and continued to grow as more workers joined fellow asylum seekers along the Honduras-Guatemala border.

“The impoverished nations of Central America, from which thousands of migrants have fled in recent years, are under mounting pressure from Trump’s administration to do more to curb mass migration,” reports Reuters.
