CARAVAN STALLS: ‘Migrant Caravan’ Stalls After Mexican Government Denies Buses

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.01.18

The ‘migrant caravan’ slowly making its way towards the United States’ southern border hit a major snag this week, with Mexican authorities refusing to bus the immigrants north; a request that would have drastically reduced the time needed to reach the US.

According to Fox News, “The leading migrant caravan trying to make its way to the United States border is admitting defeat after asking the Mexican government to provide dozens of buses to speed up the group’s journey northward.”

“The attempt to travel by bus failed,” an organizer behind the caravan told the Associated Press

The estimated number of migrants has dropped to 4,000 people after thousands applied for asylum in Mexico or returned to their country of origin.

“Of the friends that I have been with, all want to go back,” said a 28-year-old mother of three.

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!”

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.
