There is evidently not going to be any type of reprieve for border agents at the U.S.-Mexico border due to President Joe Biden’s lenient policies involving immigration enforcement. Moreover, it is these policies that continue to attract an unprecedented number of migrants attempting to seek entry into the United States.
Roughly 1,500 miles south of the border in an area known as Tapachula, organizers and activists are going to be massing tens of thousands of immigrants not only from Central America but also from Haiti as well. This “mother of all caravans” is planning on departing for the United States on October 23rd, according to the report. Officials are already referring to this group as the “Caravana Madre” or Mother Caravan.
There was a video posted to Twitter that announced that this expected migration had apparently stated that the migrants are going to leave for the United States “with or without documents in hand.”
When reached by the Border Report, both the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Department of Homeland Security indicated that they were aware of the forthcoming surge and had been taking steps to prepare for it, but they refrained from acknowledging any specific attributes.
“U.S. Customs and Border Protection plan for all possible scenarios based off information on the operations of smugglers or the movements of migrants,” a CBP spokesperson said. “Our posture and response are based on comprehensive analysis, not on any single report. CBP stands ready to address any potential increase in migrant encounters.”
“The Texas Department of Public Safety is committed to securing our southern border,” the agency reportedly replied in an email. “While the department does not discuss operational specifics, we continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds in order to make real-time decisions and will adjust operations as necessary.”
The reports of this caravan come just weeks after there was yet another disaster in Del Rio, Texas, where approximately 15,000 Haitian migrants were gathered under a bridge and clashing with federal agents. Yes, you read that right: these people were indeed from Haiti.
The Texas DPS announced that they had taken action during the crisis in Del Rio as a response to the federal government’s failure to handle this situation. They worked together with the Texas National Guard and the department deployed literally thousands of squad cars and state troopers that lined this border area and created a barricade.
Under the Biden Administration, there were as many as 200,000 migrants that crossed the border each month. Moreover, there were tens of thousands of migrants that had been released directly into the United States, presumably with a court date, but who’s counting?
There is no question that this unraveling situation is putting both state and local border residents at risk.
