All eyes are on the 4,000-strong caravan of illegal aliens from Honduras, but that group was not the first to start out from Central America as hundreds are already streaming across our border.
Most recently, border patrol agents grabbed up over 100 illegals just in the last few days, according to Fox News:
It said the smugglers never crossed the border while they helped migrants over the wall in four places. The group was comprised of 100 Guatemalans and eight Hondurans. They included 52 children, nine of them 5 years and younger.
The mass crossing occurred while another drama was being played out much farther south as a caravan of several thousand Central American migrants traveled northbound, prompting President Donald Trump to warn Mexico to stop them from reaching the U.S. border.
Arizona Border Patrol agents for weeks have been overwhelmed by the arrival of large numbers of Central American migrants traveling in families.
Immigration officials have been dealing with this wild influx for months.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Arizona earlier this month began releasing hundreds of people to await court dates, saying it didn’t have the capacity to hold an “incredibly high volume” of migrant families showing up at the border.
“Coordinated smuggling of large numbers of Central Americans is taking place daily here,” Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Anthony Porvaznik said in a statement.
This has all been going on long before the giant army of invading illegals formed in Honduras and began their march toward the U.S.A.
But, many eyes are on that giant caravan of illegals headed north as we speak.
As to that army of invaders, the president of Guatemala recently had some frightening news.
As the migrant caravan of some 4,000 illegal aliens continues to course through Honduras, Guatemala, and into Mexico, some sources in Guatemala are now claiming that there are more than just migrants in the group.
Guatemalan newspaper Prensa Libre quoted Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales as saying that his government had detained “close to 100 people completely linked to terrorist issues, with ISIS, and that not only have we arrested them within our territory, but they have been deported to their countries of origin,” according to a translation by the Center for Immigration Studies.
