    New Migrant ‘Caravan’ Sets Off From Honduras, Could Arrive At US-Mexico Border Around

    New Migrant ‘Caravan’ Sets Off From Honduras, Could Arrive At US-Mexico Border Around Election Day

    Are they hoping for a post-election amnesty?

    Published 2 hours ago on Oct 1, 2020

    A new migrant “caravan” departed the city of San Pedro Sula in Honduras on Wednesday, hoping to reach the United States in the coming weeks.

    CBS News has reported that some in Central America have promoted the idea of a new caravan on social media recently. The group had been slated to leave on October 1, but travelers carrying knapsacks and minimal supplies left the staging grounds for the caravan on Wednesday night.

    Initial reports indicate that 900 prospective migrants have joined the caravan. The formations have historically grown as the large groups travel through Guatemala and Mexico, although they usually taper off in size before the travelers reach the US-Mexico border.

    The ‘caravan’ phenomenon reached its peak in 2018, when formations of hopeful migrants of up to 10,000 were traveling through Mexico in hopes of reaching the United States. The introduction of the Trump administration’s ‘Stay-in-Mexico’ policy has proved integral to deterring the phenomenon, requiring those who seek asylum in the country to wait in Mexico while their application is processed.

    This caravan appears to be the first of its kind since the 2018 rush of caravans, and its timing is rather conspicuous. The migrants may very well arrive in the vicinity of the US-Mexico border near election day, and some may be under the impression that a tentative President-elect Joe Biden would grant them generous residence and asylum privileges.

    Illegal immigration has begun to surge in recent weeks and months as an implication of the global coronavirus recession in Mexico and Central America, and the new group represents a potent health risk to those traveling within it, as well as to citizens of Guatemala, Mexico and the United States present where it is intending to travel.

    They may very well be right. Biden has pledged not to deport anyone except illegal aliens who commit felonies(other than immigration violations) in the United States. This would represent a destruction of American immigration enforcement, and the caravan migrants seem only to be taking him for his word in assuming they’ll be allowed into the country.

    WATCH: Thousands of Caravan Migrants Push into Guatemala

    October 1, 2020

    Reports from the Honduras-Guatemala border shows large groups of migrants illegally pushing past security personnel. Despite the threat of COVID-19, the migrants forced their way across the border.

    A tweet released by New York Times video correspondent Brent McDonald shows a “large caravan of Central American migrants fleeing pandemic-induced poverty” pushing their way past Guatemalan border security officials. He reports the group is heading to Mexico — presumably with an intended destination of the U.S. southern border.

    McDonald reported that Guatemalan border officials expect an additional 3,000 to attempt to enter from Honduras on Friday, raising the total two-day crossing to an estimated 6,000 migrants.

    The Guardian also reports thousands of Honduran migrants “hoping to reach the United States” are illegally crossing the border into Guatemala. The report estimates more than 3,000 had crossed the border by mid-day on Thursday.


    The article states the odds of the caravan reaching the U.S. border is small due to increased immigration enforcement in Guatemala and Mexico following negotiations with the Trump administration earlier this year. As part of that negotiation, Mexico created a National Guard for the specific purpose of enforcing its southern border with Guatemala.


    “The migrants who arrived at the Guatemala border on Thursday had set out walking the previous night from San Pedro Sula, and many wore masks,” The Guardian article reports. “They appeared to be mostly young men, though there were the occasional small children being pushed in strollers.”

    Migrant caravan sets out for the US amid COVID-19 concerns

    Thousands of Hondurans begin their journey to the US as Honduras reels from the pandemic’s economic effect.

    The first Hondurans hoping to reach the United States arrived at the Guatemala border on foot on Thursday morning as part of a newly-formed caravan, testing the newly reopened frontier that had been shut thanks to the coronavirus pandemic a month before the US presidential elections.
    Guatemalan authorities reported more than 1,000 people had crossed the border from Honduras without proper documentation on their path to the US.

    Edwin Omar Molino, a 17-year-old from Cortes, said he was leaving Honduras because he could not find work. He blamed President Juan Orlando Hernandez for running the country into the ground.
    “Even when you want to find a job, there aren’t any. That’s why we leave our country,” Molino told the Associated Press news agency.
    “There’s the pandemic, and it scares me,” he added. But he said he would not be able to help his family get ahead without taking the risk.

    Difficult journey
    Central Americans began travelling in large groups in recent years, seeking safety in numbers and in some cases avoiding the cost of smugglers. Calls for a new caravan to leave on October 1 had circulated for weeks on social media, and unconfirmed posts on social media appear to show groups travelling through Honduras towards the border.

    The odds of a large migrant caravan reaching the US border, already low, have grown increasingly slim over the past year. Under pressure from the US, Mexico deployed its National Guard and more immigration agents to break up attempted caravans last year.
    They dispersed large groups of migrants attempting to travel together in southern Mexico. Actually crossing into the US legally is virtually impossible now with the pandemic, and entering without documents is as difficult as ever.

    The departure of the new group was reminiscent of a migrant caravan that formed two years ago shortly before US midterm elections. It became a hot issue in the campaign, driving anti-immigrant rhetoric. While the caravans draw attention, they account for a small fraction of the daily migration flow by small groups that pass unnoticed through Central America and Mexico.
    The group that arrived at the Guatemala border on Thursday had set out walking the previous night from San Pedro Sula, jumping the gun on their own scheduled departure.

    Guatemalan immigration authorities said on Thursday more than 500 were being processed at the Corinto crossing, but most lacked required identification documents. Authorities planned to register those entering the country and offer a voluntary assisted return to those willing to turn back.
    AP journalists reported seeing others crossing the border illegally near the formal crossing. A regional agreement allows citizens of Honduras to transit through Guatemala.
    Guatemalan officials were requiring the migrants to provide documents showing a negative COVID-19 test – even though last week they said they would not require a test for those spending less than 72 hours in the country. Dozens of Guatemalan police and soldiers maintained order.
    Those who walked down dark streets on Wednesday night away from San Pedro Sula’s bus station carried small knapsacks, and many wore masks. They appeared to be mostly young men, though there were the occasional small children being pushed in strollers.
    Governments throughout the region made it known they were watching on Wednesday. Mexico’s immigration agency said in a statement that would enforce “safe, orderly and legal” migration and not do anything to promote the formation of a caravan.
    The US embassy in Honduras said on Twitter on Wednesday migration to the US was more difficult than ever right now – and more dangerous because of the coronavirus.

    Translation: Now more than ever, it is more difficult to illegally cross the US border. The journey is made even more dangerous by the current global COVID-19 pandemic.
    But the factors driving migrants to leave Central America have not eased during the pandemic. As economies have suffered, there are ever fewer jobs available, and the struggle for families to put food on the table has worsened. Some migrants also cited the ever-present high rate of crime.

    Job losses
    The UN’s International Labor Organization (ILO) on Wednesday said at least 34 million jobs have been lost in Latin America due to the pandemic.
    The ILO lists Latin America and the Caribbean as the worst-hit region in the world in terms of lost working hours, with a drop of 20.9 percent in the first three quarters of the year.
    The flow of migrants north from Central America had slowed dramatically during the pandemic as countries throughout the region closed their borders. Most migrant shelters along the principal routes closed their doors to new arrivals as they tried to keep the virus from spreading to vulnerable populations.

    Mexico and the US deported hundreds of migrants back to their home countries in an attempt to empty detention centres.

    The US government effectively shut down the asylum system at its southern border during the pandemic.
    Mexico tried to bus asylum seekers stuck at its northern border to other parts of the country and back to their home countries.
    Mexico has typically offered migrants the opportunity to seek asylum there, but many have their minds set on the US. Migrants are also likely to find it more difficult to find work in Mexico now as the economy is expected to contract 10 percent this year due to the effect of the pandemic.

    Turn them ALL back whether they are "willing or unwilling".

    We do not want them here!

    Get our National Guard on the border to expel them all.

    They are NOT our responsibility to find them work!

    Give them nothing! Let their country pay their transportation back home. We are not their travel agent!

    Guatemala is concerned the caravan could spread COVID-19

    A massive migrant caravan charged into Guatemala, the first since the coronavirus pandemic hit Central America in March. Videos show thousands of Honduran migrants pour across the Guatemala border as they march toward their final destination of the United States.

    More than 3,000 migrants illegally crossed from Honduras and into Guatemala by midday on Thursday, The Guardian reported. New York Times correspondent Brent McDonald said, "Guatemala border officials expect another 3,000 migrants to enter from Honduras" on Friday. "That makes 6,000 so far en route to Mexico and the U.S. Just in time for the U.S. election."

    Guatemalan authorities had planned to register the migrants and offer assistance to anyone willing to turn around and go back to Honduras. However, the caravan stampeded through the border and past the massively outnumbered armed guards in the Guatemalan city of El Corinto.

    One Honduran man died during the chaotic scene.

    "The Guatemalan Institute of Migration said the man, who was not identified, was traveling aboard a tractor-trailer in the border town of Entre Ríos when he fell to the ground and was subsequently run over by the truck," the Daily Mail reported.

    "The migrants who arrived at the Guatemala border on Thursday had set out walking the previous night from San Pedro Sula, and many wore masks," according to The Guardian. "They appeared to be mostly young men, though there were the occasional small children being pushed in strollers."

    "They're leaving in groups and what they're looking for are life alternatives outside Honduras because Honduras has nothing to offer," Scalabrinian Sister Nyzelle Juliana Donde, director of the Honduran bishops' migrant ministry, told the Catholic News Service. "What most migrants do is leave for basic needs. The pandemic exacerbated hunger, poverty, lack of opportunity. 'Maras' and gangs have also worked very hard during this time."
    Guatemalan officials have concerns about a massive caravan traveling through the country.

    "We're talking about a caravan in the middle of a pandemic," said Guatemala's migration director Guillermo Díaz. "The situation is complicated because they broke the health protocols and we don't know who has entered (the country)."

    Guatemala has had over 3,200 COVID-19 deaths, and Honduras has had nearly 2,400 coronavirus deaths, according to Worldometers. Guatemala only opened its borders last week after being closed for six months to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

    The Guatemalan government promised to detain and deport anyone caught illegally crossing its border.

    In October 2018, President Donald Trump said he would be ending or "substantially reducing" foreign aid to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador if they didn't do something about the caravans flowing into the United States.

    In June 2019, Mexico and the U.S. reached a deal to curb migrants flooding across the border.

    "Given the dramatic increase in migrants moving from Central America through Mexico to the United States, both countries recognize the vital importance of rapidly resolving the humanitarian emergency and security situation," the joint agreement states. "The Governments of the United States and Mexico will work together to immediately implement a durable solution."

    On Friday, journalist Todd Bensman posted a video of Mexican federal troops at the Guatemalan border preparing to stop the migrant caravan from entering Mexico.

    The last time Mexico marshaled federal troops like this for a migrant caravan (January 2020), every single migrant ended up on a bus back to Honduras and Guatemala. Sure there were extended melees but full buses still rolled south.

    Looks like these migrant caravanners are heading straight into a Mexican brick wall.
