The largest migrant caravan currently making up 11,000 people, expected to reach 15,000 by the time they reach the US border, left Tapachula on the Mexico-Guatemala border Monday.
The current caravan making its way through Mexico is one of the largest yet and they are heading right for the United States just in time for former vice president Joe Biden to head to the Summit of the Americas in LA.
Many of the migrants heading this way are from Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua. Countries that are under authoritarian rule, where we’ll end up if the current regime doesn’t stop what they’re doing.
According to Fox News: A Haitian migrant taking part in what could be the largest ever migrant caravan through Mexico to the U.S. is demanding that President Biden keep his promise to allow them to stay once they reach the border.
“He promised the Haitian community he will help them,” the migrants, who were interviewed by Fox News Friday, said. “He will recall Title 42. He will help us have real asylum.”
The Summit of the Americas didn’t send invitations to the three countries where migrants are coming from and on Monday Mexican President Manuel Lopez Obrador confirmed he would not be going to the exclusive meeting due to this slight on the authoritarian countries.
An administration official cited ‘lack of democratic space’ and human rights situations’ in the trio of nations as reasoning for leaving them out.
“There cannot be a summit if all countries are not invited,” López Obrador said Monday, indicating that Mexico would instead be represented by his foreign affairs secretary, Marcelo Ebrard, “Or there can be one, but that is to continue with all politics of interventionism.”
Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard will attend the conference in López Obrador’s place.
Other migrants in the caravan hail from Haiti, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and even India, Bangladesh, and some African countries.
Title 42, which is what many of the migrants are counting on, was due to end on May 23. A federal judge in Louisiana granted an injunction on Friday that stopped the policy from ending. Title 42 is the pandemic-era Centers for Disease Control (CDC) restriction that allows border agents to quickly expel migrants.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has repeatedly stated his department will continue to enforce Title 42 and has warned migrants not to make the dangerous journey to the United States.
“The restrictions at our southwest border have not changed. Single adults and families encountered will continue to be expelled, where appropriate, under Title 42. And those who are unable to establish a legal basis to remain will be removed,” Mayorkas said last month.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials have said they expect up to 18,000 migrants per day once Title 42 is lifted. Border resources are at capacity when 5,000 migrants attempt to cross per day.
In April more than 234,000 migrants were stopped at the border by US authorities. This is a 22-year high and surpassed the previous high of Biden’s presidency of 209,906 set in March, and the highest level since March 2000, when it reached 220,063.
Don’t forget that our country is suffering and barely able to provide for citizens here already. The baby formula shortage is still raging, with all-time high inflation, and ridiculously high gas prices. Yet the Biden regime has made sure that the border is fully stocked with baby food and baby formula.
“Building a Sustainable, Resilient, and Equitable Future”
The United States developed the theme for the Ninth Summit with the region’s governments, civil society, and private sector, and the thirteen international organizations that comprise the Joint Summit Working Group and support the summit process).
People, institutions, and governments across our hemisphere have shared with us their priorities and concerns, and these include the COVID-19 pandemic and the cracks it exposed in health, economic, educational, and social systems; they include threats to democracy; the climate crisis; and a lack of equitable access to economic, social, and political opportunities that places a heavy burden on the most vulnerable and underrepresented among us.
The success of the summit will depend on the adoption of an ambitious and action-oriented agenda, and on the implementation of the commitments leaders make in Los Angeles in June to address these challenges.
The summit will last from June 6 to 10 in Los Angeles. The supposed goal is to strengthen the hemispheric solidarity. It seems more like a time for over-inflated world leaders to pat each other on the backs for the terrible jobs they are doing in their countries. Ours included.
The Biden regime says it selects countries based upon the acceptance of political freedom, human rights, and democratic values. So they left out Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela. Despite the fact that the current track that we’re on, we’re going to end up just like them in no time.
Will this event be a huge flop as our border is completely overwhelmed?
Probably. When isn’t something Biden does not a huge failure?
