Mexico Gives Transit Visas to Illegal Alien Caravan Marchers

Mexico Gives Transit Visas to Illegal Alien Caravan Marchers

While a handful of the migrants may attempt to cross into the USA and some are planning to seek asylum, the yearly march is mostly held to raise awareness to the dangers of fleeing gang violence or political upheaval and corruption in Central American nations.

Mujica reiterated that the point of the caravan was to emphasize the need for legal reforms, draw attention to the migrants' plight and press for more welcoming policies from Mexican authorities.

Rangel and the criminal groups reached their truce despite the Mexican government rejecting the idea.

The president has been tweeting about the caravan since Sunday after the Fox News program Fox & Friends and other media outlets reported a group of more than 1,000 migrants was traveling to the USA border and Mexican authorities were doing little to stop them.

Buzzfeed started the media frenzy over the marchers when it posted an article on March 31 titled "A Huge Caravan Of Central Americans Is Headed For The US, And No One In Mexico Dares To Stop Them", except ... someone dared.

Lopez Obrador said on Wednesday that "we will not accept the use of force, the militarization of the border".

"There was a story, I believe it was the LA Times, that documented some of that", she said. The state registered the highest number of homicides in Mexico in 2017, which went on record as the country's most violent year in recent history.

In his first tweet of the day Thursday, Trump noted the feared caravan invasion was no longer a threat, then shifted the focus to illegal drug smuggling.

With the recent news of Kyrie Irving missing the rest of the season, the value of that third seed has risen exponentially. Despite being shorthanded, one thing is for sure - the Sixers won't be entering the game with a mindset of an underdog.

In fact, this year's procession is called the "Stations of the Cross Refugee Caravan" to emphasize the humanitarian crises Central Americans are facing. He said "the best thing we have won" from the spotlight Trump has turned on this particular group is a high-level meeting with Mexican immigration authorities to talk about long-term reform.

The caravan at the heart of the latest border flareup was marching northward to draw attention to the migrants' plight, with most heading to official USA border crossings to apply for asylum and some hoping to break off and cross illegally.

"About 80% of them are from Honduras", he said.

Santiago: Organizers have not said.

'They crossed into the United States, or tried to'. "They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people", he said previously. More than 20 people were killed in post-election protests, and Honduras has always been a unsafe place for activists. They're not sending you.

Trump has made the migrant caravan a central theme in tweets. These are the types of investments - not a further militarized border - that will lead to more sustainable solutions for the United States, migrants, and their home countries.
