caravan

A Facebook event set up by San Diegans for Secure Borders, a group of local grassroots citizens dedicated to securing the San Diego County border and ports, asks supporters to help stop the caravan of some 1,500 illegal aliens making its way through Mexico by preventing them from crossing the border.

According to the event page, supporters are set to meet in Calexico, California early in the morning of Wednesday, April 11.  The group says the date and location “is just a rough estimate and will likely change.”

The event, which can be seen here, further states:

They are currently in Mexico marching towards the U.S. with assistance from the Mexican Government and far left open border activist groups. Join us at the border to stop this mass foreign invasion. If our Federal Government won’t keep out masses of illegal aliens, We the People will.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post and others said the Mexican government has already taken steps to break up and stop the caravan.

According to the Post:

The Mexican government on Monday evening moved to break up the caravan of migrants moving through southern Mexico, with immigration officials registering the travelers and suggesting some could receive humanitarian visas while others would have to leave Mexico.

The caravan, estimated at more than 1,000 migrants, many from Central America, has gained increasing visibility because of tweets by President Trump that have criticized Mexico for not doing more to stop the flow of migrants to the southern border of the United States.

The bulk of the migrant group — part of an annual caravan intended to raise awareness about the plight of people making the dangerous trek across Mexico toward the United States — is currently in the town of Matias Romero Avendano in the southern state of Oaxaca. A portion of the group rode by train to the neighboring state of Veracruz, according to caravan organizers, local officials and others, but it is unclear if that group has so far dispersed.

Most of those traveling through Mexico, the Post added, “mostly stream out of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, where gang violence is rife and the murder rates have ranked among the highest in the hemisphere. Recent elections in Honduras were marred by irregularities and accusations of fraud, and a subsequent crackdown on protesters has been condemned as heavy-handed.”

Buzzfeed’s Adolfo Flores tweeted:

But, he added, an organizer of the caravan said it’s not over:

As of this writing, 44 people said they will attend and another 409 say they are interested.
