This shows that the caravan is made up of people determined to get into Mexico and the US at any cost without any regard for law and rules. Small wonder these caravans are viewed more and more negatively with each subsequent one that enters Mexico. I'm not sold on the idea that these people are as persecuted as they claim when they immediately ask for asylum at the US border, and I question if they're being coached to do so even when the claim is dubious at best.Mexican authorities said a group of about 350 migrants broke the locks on a gate at the Guatemalan border Friday and forced their way into southern Mexico to join a larger group of migrants trying to make their way toward the United States.
I could be wrong, but aren't people with communicable or otherwise non-curable diseases forbidden from entering the US? Of course, the Democrats and other people with pro-illegal immigration stances would likely find such a policy ableist or whatever the -ist of the day is.“I have been HIV positive for 16 years,” said Sandoval, but her reason for going north was not just medical treatment. “It has been two years since I heard from my son” in the United States, and money is scarce, she said. "
Given how they already rushed the Mexican border and intend to the do the same at the US border, I agree in principle. However, Mexico will unfortunately do little - whether by choice or lack of resources - to stop the migration north and someone else will probably bankroll the caravan with free wifi and transportation to give them as posh a trip as possible to the border.It is at this point they should be seen as an invading force and dealt with accordingly.
