The “Migrant Caravan” is now set to attempt to cross the Mexican border into the United States.
It’s uncertain as to what will take place, but there have been very pointed statements by both those opposing, and supporting the undertaking.
On Yahoo, the story quotes:
As the issue exploded into a diplomatic row, organizers of the caravan quietly broke it up.
The Department of Homeland Security issued a stark warning Wednesday to the first 120 who arrived, including some 50 minors.
“If you enter our country illegally, you have broken the law and will be referred for prosecution,” DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said.
Nielsen said those making false immigration claims or helping others to do so would also be prosecuted.
Around 600 migrants are still traveling more or less together by hopping trains and taking buses.
The first two buses will be followed by three more, said organizer Irineo Mujica of the migrant rights group People Without Borders.
and Reuters reports:
Busloads of migrants began arriving on Tuesday at a shelter that was a five minute-walk from the border and within sight of a U.S. flag waving under an overpass connecting the two countries.
While many rested in tents after a month-long journey across Mexico, others wandered up to the border to contemplate the next stage in their journey.
“The wall doesn’t look that tall,” said Kimberly George, a 15-year-old girl from Honduras as she looked toward a stunted barrier a few feet away. “I really want to cross it.”
