    Putting a face behind those who risk it all in exchange for a new life

    Refugee caravan members sleep near the railroad tracks in Sonora. On April 9, 2017, a group of Central Americans from Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua joined to form the 2017 Refugee Caravan, or Viacrucis 2017, put together by organizations from Mexico and the U.S.

    • I mean, Heaven forbid we call it something patriotic!

      The Pentagon is no longer using its name for the U.S. military mission on the southern border, military officials said Wednesday.

      “Operation Faithful Patriot” was the name for the deployment of at least 5,000 active-duty troops at ports of entry along three border states.

        Trump administration to suspend asylum for people who cross border illegally

        https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ly/1933051002/



        I don't fault the people. They seem to be just ignorant about immigration laws, but the activists who want open borders, who are traveling with them. Ugh.

        And if they take them to Tijuana, Tijuana is a cartel war zone.

        I just feel like the people are being used.

          However, in a statement issued jointly by the DHS and DOJ, the administration said migrants will not be allowed to enter the U.S. illegally to file asylum claims, which is how the vast majority of roughly 150,000 Central American families and children entered the U.S. last fiscal year.

          “Our asylum system is overwhelmed with too many meritless asylum claims from aliens who place a tremendous burden on our resources, preventing us from being able to expeditiously grant asylum to those who truly deserve it," said Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker in a joint statement.

          There are 6,000 migrants here in Mexico City and another 4,000 headed north in three additional caravans, according to the International Organization for Migration.

          • They are headed to no good place. The cartels are battling it out over Tijuana, and pay is low, cost of living is high there.

            Central American migrants in Mexico want buses to US border

            MEXICO CITY (AP) - Central American migrants in a caravan that has stopped in Mexico City demanded buses Thursday to take them to the U.S. border, saying it is too cold and dangerous to continue walking and hitchhiking.

            Mexico City authorities say that of the 4,841 registered migrants receiving shelter in a sports complex, 1,726 are under the age of 18, including 310 children under five.

            • Border Patrol arrests nearly 450 migrants in western Arizona

              http://www.fox10phoenix.com/news/ari...stern-arizona_

              YUMA, Ariz. (AP) — The U.S. Border Patrol said Friday it arrested 449 migrants this week during a 48-hour period in western Arizona, including two large groups of Central Americans.

              Arizona Border Patrol agents for several months have been overwhelmed by the arrival of large numbers of Central American migrants traveling in families.

              Border Patrol agents in both the Yuma and Tucson sector farther east since August have increasingly encountered big groups of Central Americans traveling as families being left by smugglers at the border. One group was as large as 275 people.

              The situation became so overwhelming in October that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released hundreds of people to await court dates, saying it didn’t have the capacity to hold an “incredibly high volume” of migrant families showing up at the border.

                  Yeah, someone has to hand out the blankest and medicine.

                  • For Mexico too, migrant caravan represents a major challenge and dilemma

                    http://www.latimes.com/world/mexico-...ed~curatedpage


                    “We can’t receive a large number of people,” Veracruz Gov. Miguel Angel Yunes grumbled last week as the caravan crossed into his Gulf Coast state. “There have been migrants in Veracruz for a long time, begging in the streets. It’s a grave social problem.”

                    But the frosty greeting from the Veracruz governor underscored an often-obscured reality: In Mexico, as in the United States, many view the Central American asylum seekers in less than flattering terms: potential criminals, low-wage job competition and drains on public resources.

                    “It’s not fair that officials treat them like kings — they give them food, water, medicine, it’s not right,” said Antonio Contreras Diaz, 54, an electrician who lives in the working-class district adjoining the sprawling sports facility where caravan members have been staying. “There’s also a lot of poverty in Mexico. Why don’t authorities do the same for Mexicans?”

                          Come on over, budgie. You can hand out blankets and medicine in Tijuana.

                            He'd probably prefer it over your neck of the woods, apparently according to our news a massacre occurs in America everyday.

                              Well, hey, Nancy, in Tijuana many occur in one day, and the cartels like to pretend they're ISIS, and also just dismember people. among other things.

                                Sounds delightful, why you'd recommend such a place to someone you dislike is beyond my understanding.
