A new caravan of migrants is headed for our southern border and we’re told this group is armed and dangerous:
Bound for the U.S., the new group of migrants are reportedly following closely behind the thousands-strong Central American caravan currently traveling through Mexico on the way to the American border.
Three hundred Salvadorans left the nation’s capital of San Salvador on Sunday, according to a report from Reuters. The report details how law enforcement is struggling to deal with the new group, which is allegedly using violent tactics against Mexican border agents.
According to Reuters:
A third group broke through a gate at the Guatemala border with Mexico in Tecun Uman on Sunday, and clashed with police. Local first responders said that security forces used rubber bullets against the migrants, and that one person, Honduran Henry Adalid, 26, was killed.
Six police officers were injured, said Beatriz Marroquin, the director of health for the Retalhuleu region.
Mexico’s Interior Minister Alfonso Navarrete told reporters on Sunday evening that federal police did not have any weapons, even to fire plastic bullets.
He said that some of the migrants had guns while others had Molotov cocktails, and this information had been passed on to other Central American governments.
Guatemala’s government said in a statement that it regrets that the migrants didn’t take the opportunity of dialogue and instead threw stones and glass bottles at police.
Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins reported Tuesday that the caravan is now being chartered to the U.S. border by tour buses.
Mexico is clearly aiding and abetting these groups by allowing them to transit their territory.
The President should treat them as the enemy state they’ve become.
No more tourism, no more money transfers, no more foreign aid, no more trade and the border should be sealed tight.
Anyone trying to cross should be treated like an enemy combatant.
How long do you think this would go on before Mexico caved and halted the caravans?
About thirty seconds…
