Just when we thought we were done with the issue of the Honduran migrants, we see that we were only just beginning. The San Diego Union-Tribune recently shared a report that over 15,000 new participants will make up the migrant caravan that will be heading to Mexico on January 15.
This does nothing to support the members of the original caravan who are still finding themselves waiting for asylum from the United States. The original migrants who left Honduras in October are still stranded at the U.S.-Mexico border and forced to live in overcrowded shelters in Tijuana. The migrants that will be leaving Central America in the thousands are expecting to seek work visas in Mexico.
“They say they are even bigger and stronger than the last caravan,” stated Irma Garrido, a member of Reactiva Tijuana Foundation which serves as an advocacy group for the migrants.
