Mexico warned this week that “the mother of all migrant caravans” could be heading toward the US.
Interior Secretary Olga Sanchez Cordero fears that up to 20,000 migrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala are already gathering in Honduras.
“We have information that a new caravan is forming in Honduras, that they’re calling ‘the mother of all caravans,’ and they are thinking it could have more than 20,000 people,” she insisted Wednesday.
It’s time to quit fucking around and deal with this in a way that sends a clear message.
For starters, cut off all trade, aid and relations with Mexico and close the fucking border indefinitely. They’re allowing this shit to pass through their country, let them deal with them.
And after I scheduled the post above, this popped up. It’s a good start, but I really think Mexico should’ve been included.
WASHINGTON, March 30 (Reuters) – The United States is cutting off aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, known collectively as the “Northern Triangle,” the State Department said on Saturday, a day after President Donald Trump blasted the Central American countries for sending migrants to the United States.
“We are carrying out the President’s direction and ending FY (fiscal year) 2017 and FY 2018 foreign assistance programs for the Northern Triangle,” a State Department spokesperson said in a statement. The department declined to provide further details.
