We just learned that a new migrant caravan is coming north. This is the story from The Guardian:
This is not the first migrant caravan to leave Tapachula, but it may be the largest ever recorded in Mexico: its numbers are expected to swell in the coming days, and may reach 15,000 people…..”
According to the article, it is a multinational caravan:
The largest number of migrants in the caravan come from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua – three countries whose authoritarian rulers Joe Biden has conspicuously refused to invite to the summit. But there are also Haitians, Salvadorans, Hondurans, Guatemalans and even citizens of India, Bangladesh, and several African countries.
Up here, the impotent Biden administration is going to play word games (asylum seekers), dump this on the overwhelmed Border Patrol, and put the illegal border crossers on a midnight plane to somewhere. To say the least, it was a lot different when our family came to the U.S. seeking political freedom.
Cuba and the U.S. did not have diplomatic relations back then, so we had to go to Mexico, travel to Jamaica, and wait two months for “el permiso,” or, the permit, as my parents called it. Again, it was more orderly and correctly so.
So what do we do now?
