Caravan of 1,500 Central American Migrant Families Crossing Mexico to Reach U.S. Border

Breitbart – by Ildefonso Ortiz and Brandon Darby

A caravan of more than 1,500 familes including men, women, and children are making their way from Central America through Mexico and are expected to arrive at the US-Mexico Border in the coming days to request refugee status.

Known as the Viacrucis Migrante 2018, the caravan began on March 25 in the state of Chiapas and is expected to reach Tijuana within a month where the members of the group are expected to request refugee status from the U.S. government. The caravan is organized by the immigrant rights group Pueblo Sin Fronteras who have been posting updates about the caravan’s journey through Mexico.   

The group is reportedly made up of familes from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras who are fleeing extreme poverty and gang violence. The group has been demanding a stop to the violence.

While the group is made up primarily of individuals who could be considered undocumented by Mexican authorities, officials have stepped aside, Mexico’s El Universal reported. Additionally, the group has been thankful to the local governments in various rural communities in southern Mexico for helping the caravan by providing transportation, food, and other aid.

The push to the border comes at a time the Trump administration has clashed with the Mexican government over their apparent leniency when dealing with drug cartels, border security, and the payment of walls.

    1. Except for maybe food and lodging. Oh, and healthcare, education, a shot at becoming a congressman, full impunity. One could go on, but… you get the picture.


  1. This should be treated as and responded to as an invasion, which it is. IQ’s in the 65-75 range, useless, unskilled, sickness bearing, immoral, unethical lowlifes who once in, will try to get even more of their relatives into our country. Sorry, but that’s the way it is.

  2. I keep going back to the one thing that I think will solve this problem, as well as our problems in DC: Napalm. “It’s the only way to be sure” (yes, a rip-off from “Aliens”).

  3. And naturally, we’ll just be forced to take them in because it’s a “humanitarian crisis”

    Watch this: The Jew-TV is going to make a big deal out of this caravan, and they’re going to make comparisons to American wagon trains going west a century ago. This is going to be the newest sales pitch for more wetback arrivals here. (they’re just like your ancestors, who drove the wagon trains west generations ago)

    If you know they’re on the way, you have plenty of time to tell them they’re not welcome here.

    And what about the white South Africans who are seeking asylum because they’re about to be slaughtered??? Well they’re not welcome because they’re white.

    And that’s why I don’t mind anti-Semitism in the least. (you stinking Kike) I’m NOT going to be the only acceptable victim of racial discrimination. If I have to listen to endless white genocide propaganda coming from these Kike bastards, they’re going to hear what I think about their hook-nosed race of miscreants.
