Hundreds of Hondurans have gathered in the city of San Pedro Sula with plans to make their way north toward the U.S.-Mexico border. Immigration authorities in Guatemala have warned that around 1,1000 migrants on buses were headed toward the two countries common border.

The migrants composing the newly formed caravan have told reporters that President Donald Trump’s threat to seal the United States southern border wouldn’t hinder their efforts to make it to the U.S. Many say that they are unable to support their families in Honduras, so they decided to join the caravan, hoping to have more opportunities in the U.S.

According to the Associated Press, a woman by the name of Nohemy Reyes who waited at the bus stop with one of her five kids,  said that her country’s economic situation was causing her to head north.

“The economic situation is very difficult,” she told AP reporters. But if she finds that the border is closed upon her arrival at the U.S.’s southern border, she said that she would return to Honduras.

Another migrant in the caravan told a reporter from CNN: “I’m not afraid. When you set yourself a goal and you trust in God then you do everything to get there and in my case, my goal is to get to the US.”

According to Mexico’s immigration authority, the National Migration Institute, a group of 350 Central American migrants from another caravan of 2,500 strong – this time from Guatemala – forced their way into Mexico on Friday. A spokesman from the National Migration Institute stated, “With an aggressive attitude, the migrants broke the padlock on the border gate and entered the country.” The group clashed violently with local police in Metapa de Dominguez – a town in southern Mexico – after crossing the border from Guatemala.

More than once, President Trump has warned migrants attempting to reach the southern border of the United States from Central America and Mexico to stop forming caravans. Trump has even ordered the suspension of all U.S. foreign aid to Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala – the states from which the vast majority of migrants in caravans are originating from.

But neither of these actions have helped to stem the unrelenting tide of migrants.

Meanwhile, United States border facilities and immigration services are swamped with Central American and Mexican migrants. Officials have described the migrant crisis as being close to reaching a breaking point.

This week, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that more than 103,000 migrants were apprehended or deemed ‘inadmissible’ in the month of March – up nearly 77,000 from February.

With the newest caravans from Honduras and Guatemala already on their way, the U.S. can only expect the numbers to increase and the strain on the immigration system to worsen.

  1. THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THESE PEOPLE HAVE WHAT THEY DESERVE. THEY DO NOT HAVE ONE NEURONE IN THEIR BRAINS. THEY THINK THAT BECAUSE THEY HAVE 5 CHILDREN, WHICH SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENNED IF YOU ARE POOR, AND YOU CANNOT SUPPORT THEM. THEN WE HAVE TO SUPPORT THEM. PRESIDENT TRUMP YOU HAVE TO APPREHEND THEM, AND SEND THEM BACK IMMEDIATELY, WE CANNOT AFFORD THEM. THEY ARE NOT OUR PROBLEM, THEY ARE THEIR OWN PROBLEMS. WE HAVE TO DEFEND OUR PEOPLE, THERE IS A LOT OF AMERICAN BORN PEOPLE THAT HAVE NOTHING TO EAT, THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT WE HAVE TO CARE, THE REST IS NOT OUR PROBLEM. IT IS SAD, BUT IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. AMERICANS FIRST, TODAY, TOMORROW AND ALWAYS. VIVA “USA” OUR BELOVED COUNTRY…….

  2. Amen! These people who claim to not have enough to eat sure do have more energy than I do to procreate! Where’s that energy coming from?
    They need to stay home and build up their own country not invade mine! We worked for everything we have ,we support our own families! We owe these foreigners nothing. We are the first responders to the world. Go back because we have a real man in charge now & Donald Trump loves America. He won’t be letting you into our country . Turn around and plan on working like we did to build up your own country. You’re coming for free stuff,well we’re running out of free stuff!

  3. It’s ridiculous, that our democrat leaders like Pelosi, Schummer , can’t help control the that migration at the border by increasing security . Our border patrol checkpoints are are closed because the agents are busy processing the new migrants. According to one of the agents, he says some of them can’t even hold a pencil to sign their name or to place an X by their name. How are they supposed to contribute to our system? At this time once anyone crosses the border they can go anywhere in the country and take any drugs they want. Nothing to stop them. Who will support these migrants? Let’s have these liberal lawmakers take some home. I live close to the border and our shelters are full

AND IF YOU THINK DRAGGING YOUR POOR KIDS ALL THAT WAY IT WILL SOFTEN OUR HEARTS THINK AGAIN. WE ALL STRUGGLE TO CLOTH, FEED AND SHELTER OUR OWN KIDS SO WHAT MAKES THEM THINK WE CAN TAKE CARE OF THERES. GO HOME…STOP COMING HERE TO MY COUNTRY.

  7. If the wall is not enough or completed enough to stop them use the military. Guard our borders even if it means standing troops shoulder to shoulder. Screw catch and release. Turn their asses around and send them back home. Any force should be met with equal or more harsh force. Make a f*****g stand. It’s OUR country and OUR money they want. We’re DONE !
