Caravan swells to 5000, Rebuilds to enter US

Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, about 2,000 Central American migrants swam or rafted across a river separating that country from Guatemala, re-formed their mass caravan in Mexico and vowed to resume their journey toward the United States.

Their numbers swelled to about 5,000 overnight and at first light they set out walking toward the Mexican town of Tapachula, 10 abreast in a line stretching approximately a mile.

It was not immediately clear where the additional travelers had materialized from since about 2,000 gathered on the Mexican side Saturday night. They seemed likely to be people who had been waiting on the bridge over the Suchiate River or in the Guatemalan town of Tecun Uman and who decided to cross during the night.

At dawn there were still an estimated 1,500 migrants on the Guatemalan side hoping to enter legally.

They marched on through Mexico like a rag tag army of the poor, shouting triumphantly slogans like “Si se pudo!” or “Yes, we could!”

As they passed through Mexican villages on the outskirts of Ciudad Hidalgo, they drew applause, cheers and donations of food and clothing from Mexicans.

Mexico had sought to maintain order after a chaotic Friday in which thousands rushed across the bridge, only to be halted by a phalanx of officers in riot gear. The authorities began handing out numbers for people to be processed in a strategy seen before at United States border posts when dealing with large numbers of migrants.

But despite a continued heavy police deployment on the bridge, a steady stream of migrants made it to Mexican soil with relative ease by crossing the Suchiate River, which demarcates the notoriously porous border. They were not detained upon reaching the Mexican side.

    • Clay-moors and trips with a warning in their languages that if they cross they will detonate mine fields at their own peril. Enough is enough!!!!!!! The demonRATS want these illegals to vote them in and bring about third world status to America—All part of the New World Order——-How does that NWO sound to you Americans?

      • NOW THAT IS A GREAT IDEA HARD HAT…….Wonder if the Border Patrol would be allowed to use those in designated places……..If the military put them in w/o BP knowing where they were at, might get one of our guys hurt…..Another idea would be to hire all CPL holders as guards everywhere in 4 hr. shifts…….We certainly know how to get rid of illegal aliens……..

  1. This is an invasion paid for by globalist to attack the USA economically and culturally. Look at them and not one of them looks poor or oppressed. They are being fed and supported along the way.

    This demands a U.S. Military response.

    Also citizen militias need to mobilize as well!

    The U.S. Constitution demands it!

  2. Where do thousands go to the bathroom? Where do they get food and water…where did the semi-trucks come from to run through gates. There is far more to this than we know.

    • DA.CLAY………In Calif they live on the streets in cardboard boxes (big cities), and use the streets for their bathrooms………So you can imagine how those SEMI’s smell………One whiff and that dog searcher would know in a minute………The people on the borders (& their dogs) are pretty good at recognizing those trucks……

  3. We need to get our troops put at the border and I mean a great many of them for this isn’t a peaceful group of people this is a invasion on our country and we have the right to use force to stop these people and we should let these people know that they risk losing their lives if they even try to cross over into our country!!! The Democrats started this crap and it is time for the Congress to call for an immediate season to pass Trump’s immigration laws so we can let these people know that are border is closed and that we now have new laws and that there is no aid or welfare of any kind that will be given!!! That means no free anything!!!! If these Democrats don’t act we the citizens of this country need to show them that come November they hopefully will no longer be a party of power in our country for what these Democrats have started is a disgrace and has put our country in a desperate position!!!

    • Well said. But states such as California want to give them a free ride, medical and Snap. That’s where our tax dollars are going. Each day more dirt and crime in our U. S cities. And to boot they act like they have the right to receive all of this. And the democrats are definitely the blame. And we have all these ignorant Americans still voting for them. God forbid if they win the house and or Senate. We’re screwed if they do. Our children and grandchildren are going to have it the hardest. Get the military there A.S.A.P

  4. We might as well prepare for invasion. Stock up on ammo and lock up anything you want to keep. You know they won’t stop them at the border. This is all thanks to democrats. When they can’t find a job that will support their family because one of these folks will do it cheaper they will be sorry but it will be too late….. I plan to defend my property by whatever means necessary!

  5. Wow ! We have invasion of 5,000 barbarians and we do not know what to do !!! Wow ! Were our army is located ? Somewhere in The Middle East ?? We would not menage to bring it on time. Now , we, the people should put whole government with all our representatives under wall for shooting.They refused to bring safety to our people and it is treason. We do not need them any longer!!!

  6. Absolute Miracle … with only the clothing they wear, no supplies, toiletries and no outside funding $upport or leadership, this army of healthy men abandoned their friends and family and spontaneously gather to march over 1000 miles for asylum in a foreign language country.
    By Instinct, they disperse to overwhelm the Mexican border and guards and magically reconvene in their march. Another miracle is to find an outpouring of free prepared food, shelter and other spontaneous healthy men joining the march.
    I bet they will miraculously find free buses, trains, cars and trucks to help that journey to a Democrat’s asylum sanctuary of free food, medicine, medical insurance, education, drugs and waiting “Rich-Americans-Victims” for plunder and sex without fear of law enforcers.
    All this surprisingly timed with the election and with mean Republicans saying they should go home and help their own country.
    Every vote for a Democrat says they approve of this and hate our Constitution as Anti-American and can’t be a Biblical Christian.

  7. Will these “cultures” ever have enough stamina, intelligence and determination to build sustainable societies? There simp!y aren’t enough White People to continually intervene on these idiots behalf.

  8. All I know about the law is if they step foot on American soil & cry asylum, then they have to take their applications. They know this to & that is their goal. The democrats are to blame for this they have posted this in their countries. Trump has to follow the law so congress needs to convene an immergecy session & change the laws. Most of these people have no ID are we supposed to take these liars word that they are who they say they are& or should common sense be used to deny them entry? I go for the common sense approach. This is going to happen over & over until they can make a living in their own countries. America can no longer afford to take in the ones that want to come here without applying like over a million do each year. They aren’t invited to just walk in & take up residency. They think they can it’s time to show them that the answer is not to make that journey for nothing. Just don’t let this group in & the word will spread that you have to come legally or not at all.

  9. Time for rubber bullets and tear gas. If that does’nt work, lethal force is justified. This is a Sros funded invasion, pure and simple
