If you thought these invading armies of “migrants” have subsided, news has broken that yet another group of illegals has left Honduras and is headed for the U.S.A.
According to Fox News, another invading army of illegals has left Honduras:
The caravan left the northern city of San Pedro Sula earlier than expected. There was chatter on social media that the group would leave at 5 a.m. on Tuesday. It is unclear why the group left earlier, but rainy weather could have played a role.
The scene was a familiar one: The group had a mix of people that included some mothers carrying their young children on their shoulders. It’s unclear where the group will rest, but past migrants have used the Honduran city of Quimistan, which is 35 miles from the bus stop, as an early checkpoint.
Indeed, Trump warned of this latest troop of invaders.
“There is another major caravan forming right now in Honduras, and so far we’re trying to break it up, but so far it’s bigger than anything we’ve seen,” Trump said last Thursday. “And a drone isn’t going to stop it and a sensor isn’t going to stop it, but you know what’s going to stop it in its tracks? A nice, powerful wall.”
Many are dragging kids along on this dangerous journey and they are doing so in a cold calculation that having kids in tow will increase their chances of being allowed in despite being illegals.
As The New York Times reported:
Héctor Romero, 37, has decided he is going to join the caravan on Tuesday. “I have had only two days’ work a week for the past three months and that barely covers expenses,” said Mr. Romero, who collects bus fares in a small town about 40 miles west of San Pedro Sula, the city from which the caravan intends to start. “I didn’t have the courage to go last time, but this time I do.”
The divorced father of four is taking his 12-year-old daughter with him, believing that it may improve his chances with United States immigration authorities.
Sorry pal, but you not being able to get a job in Honduras and then putting your own daughter in danger during a long walk to the U.S. is not any reason we should just let you in.
Why do we need such bad parents here?
The U.S. is not the world’s jobs bank. And being an economic migrant is not a reason for refugee status.
