Thanks to Mexico, the lead migrant caravan is stalling

(National SentinelWhittle Away: The lead migrant caravan from Central American currently traveling through southern Mexico appears to be dwindling in numbers, thanks in large part to the efforts of our neighbor to the south.

As Fox News reports, the lead caravan has dropped to around 4,000 people and is currently stalled because the Mexican government refuses to provide them with buses so they can be transported more quickly to the U.S. border.

That and a combination of other things has many dejected and ready to go back home.

Thousands have applied for and received asylum in Mexico under a program offered them by the government that includes housing, jobs, education, and other benefits. Thousands more, however, have refused the offer.

Fox News reports:

The setback comes days after caravan leaders asked for “safe and dignified” transport to Mexico City, a checkpoint along the way for a group that has been dwindling in size as members either apply for protected status in Mexico or drop out over fatigue exacerbated by the sweltering weather conditions they have been facing.

“The attempt to travel by bus failed,” caravan coordinator Walter Cuello told the Associated Press Wednesday night.

It has been a tumultuous journey so far for the leading caravan, which is now estimated to contain around 4,000 people – down from a peak of more than 7,000.

“Of the friends that I have been with, all want to go back,” Hasiel Isamar Hernandez, a 28-year-old mother of three from Honduras, told the Associated Press several days ago.




Some migrants have managed to pick up rides via truck or van, whatever is available. But the trip is clearly taking its toll.

Plus, POTUS Donald Trump has vowed not to allow migrants into the U.S. and has even ordered the U.S. military to the border to assist civilian authorities in preventing the migrants from crossing.

Those who do cross illegally will be captured and likely prosecuted.

There are three more caravans behind the first one, Fox News reports.

“A second, smaller group of 1,000 or so migrants is more than 200 miles back. A third band of about 500 from El Salvador has made it to Guatemala, and a fourth group of about 700 set out from the Salvadoran capital Wednesday,” the network said.

All said, Mexico isn’t doing all it can. Federal police often watch as migrants either wade across rivers to get into the country or pile on top of vehicles for rides.

U.S. military officials in charge of assisting civilian border authorities have hinted that the lead caravan contains some unsavory people.

“This caravan is different from what we’ve seen in the past,” said Air Force Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy.

When pressed by reporters to explain that, he responded, “What we have seen is we’ve seen clearly an organization at a higher level than we’ve seen before.”

Continuing, O’Shaughnessy said, “We’ve seen violence coming out of the caravan and we’ve seen as they’ve passed other international borders, we’ve seen them behave in a nature that has not been what we’ve seen in the past.”

  1. it’s BETTER THEY ALL TURN BACK AND NOT TAKE THE CHANCE OF BEING SHOT FOR TRYING TO BREAK INTO OUR REPUBLIC.
    AND THE PRESIDENT AND MAD DOG MATTI’S MEAN BUSINESS.
    we have HAD ENOUGH OF ILLEGLS AND THEIR SUPPORTERS THE LAWLESS COMMUNIST DEMORAT PARTY.

  2. US law enforcement investigates fake scandals, such as Russian “meddling” and Trump “collaboration”, but will not investigate the people behind this invasion.

  3. It’s important that we not miss the forest because of the trees: The overall pattern is that this “caravan” is but one small part of the global equatorial regions becoming wildly overpopulated and are now erupting human hordes, like lemmings, to both the north and south. Equatorial Africa has erupted swarms into both Europe and South Africa, where the active genocide against white South Africans is being carried out by the illegal immigrants who flooded into that country from African nations to their north. Australia is victim to the hordes of Asians moving southward. Brazil is now victim to Venezuelans flooding south out of their failed state. It’s happening all over the world.
