Expected to hit the border this week, Texas is looking down the barrel of an insane influx of yet another 60,000 Haitian migrants, but yet another caravan of Haitians has already managed to cross into Mexico, and the leader of the caravan, who is American, has voted to lead the migrants to the border between the United States and Mexico, which leaves in just over two weeks.
“A migrant advocate in Southern Mexico says a Haitian caravan will depart for the U.S. border from Tapachula around Oct. 25 – with or without clearance from Mexico,” reported Border Report this past week, going on to add that the advocate, Irineo Mujica, is an American who currently works with the nonprofit Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or translated “People Without Borders.”
As seen in a video posted on social media, Mujica declared “war” on the border of the U.S. and Mexico.
“We are leaving in 20 days,” he stated. “We prefer to march with papers. […] And this time, with papers or without papers, we are ready for war. If the National Guard comes and they are cowardly enough to beat women and children, let them prepare because God’s hand is with us.”
He seems to be making reference to the Mexcian National Guard, which had an incident with Haitian migrants that turned into protesters this past month, and forcing many of them back across the border, as reported by the Daily Wire.
As of yet, the Mexican authorities have managed to hold back this new migrant caravan, leaving them stranded out in southern Mexico, and the “migrants and their advocates have been holding rallies and marches in Tapachula in recent days, according to local media,” as reported by Border Report.
The Mexican authorities have started policing their own southern border, and this past month the Mexican government broke up at least one caravan, which was made of mostly Central Americans but did include a few Haitians, catching them in Tapachula, the main border city, and turning away the illegal immigrants back across their border. As of this past September, there were over 55,000 migrants throughout shelters in Tapachula, currently waiting for processing.
News of yet another migrant caravan seems to pop up just behind the report that 60,000 Haitian migrants are making their way across Central American and could make it to the U.S. border as early as this week, which has the authorities in Texas running wild.
“Texas government and law enforcement leaders have stepped up efforts to make up for the federal government’s absence, and leaders spent the weekend preparing for a possible rush of more than 60,000 Haitian migrants,” stated the Washington Examiner. “Most of the Haitians have traveled from South America to cross the border rather than traveling to a port of entry.”
“The number of Haitian migrants headed to the U.S. could be four times the size of the group that made it across in Del Rio last month, leading to chaos as 15,000 people camped out under an international bridge waiting to be taken into federal custody,” noted the outlet.
