Thousands of foreign nationals in caravan mode are traveling through Mexico seeking to surge into the United States, en masse, either legally claiming asylum and refugee status or illegally crossing the U.S. border without inspection (8 USC section 1325).
The moving force behind these caravans is Pueblo Sin Fronteras (Town Without Borders).
Pueblo is actively involved with organization and movement of the present caravans coming from Central America — Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
On March 23, 2018, at Tapachula, Mexico, Pueblo Sin Fronteras published a demand proclamation, “Refugee Caravan 2018.”
Basically, the demands were for the United States to respect the rights of caravan members as refugees, open the nation’s borders to the caravan as they are as much citizens of the United States as the present U.S. citizens, there are to be no deportations of foreigners, no abuse of migrants, dignity and justice for all migrants, U.S. to keep TPS (Temporary Protective Status) for any foreigners covered by it, U.S. to stop financial aid to Mexico for detaining and deporting Central American migrants, and U.S. to respect all caravan members' rights under international law.
Will the new Democrat-controlled House of Representatives side with the foreign nationals and provide easy entry into the country and accede to these demands? Or will they side with the law?
Americans await the House Democrats’ actions.
Estimates place the number of persons in the first caravan moving north from Mexico City at about 5,500 persons. This number appears to be in constant flux. Some news media reported on Wednesday, November 14, 2018, that the caravan reached the U.S-Mexico border. Some migrants have now reached the border, claiming to be the caravan.
According to news reports, there are two following caravans heading to the U.S. border and their numbers appear to be equal to the first caravan.
Depending on your political view, these caravans are an invasion of foreign nationals made up of many undesirables and mere mortals seeking a good life by escaping crime, poverty, oppression, and death. Or, they are suffering humans seeking help.
Never has the United States experienced such mass migrations having no regard for its laws. The United States does not have facilities to process, to care for, and to house a surge entry of possibly 15,000 people at once.
The radical left/Democrat politicians and their funders demand that all illegal aliens have all the rights of American citizens — just like the migrants’ demand.
The lawyers for Florida Democratic candidates Bill Nelson for Senator and Andrew Gillum for Governor and who are subjects of the Florida election recount sought extraordinary help — illegal voters.
On November 9, 2018, lawyers representing Nelson and Gillum objected to the Palm Beach County voter canvassing board not counting non-citizen votes. Nelson and Gillum allege that they did not approve the lawyers’ objections. Palm Beach County is in confused ballot recount.
Congresses for decades made exception after exception, modification after modification, and amendment after amendment to gut both the immigration law fountainhead, the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The result has been decades of illegal alien border crossers and persons overstaying their visas, adding millions — as high as 30 million illegal aliens now in the country. There is no accurate count, nor can there be, of illegal aliens presently in the country.
In the history of the world, the USA is the only nation established and committed to assimilation by immigrants. At this hour, foreign nationals are crossing U.S. borders illegally or overstaying their visas to disappear into the population. Visa overstays make up as much as 40 percent of foreign nationals residing illegally in the United States today; the rest are crossing U.S. borders openly or surreptitiously.
Openly, migrants are claiming asylum or refugee status knowing they have no valid right to such claims. They are doing what open-borders advocates are telling them to do to access the United States.
Once in the United States, they are apprehended and released until a future hearing date.
Very few migrants appear.
