This is a news report on the almost immediate startup again of catch-and-release under the Biden Administration. The report states that hundreds have come across and surrendered in an hour. The Border Patrol are not allowed to hold them are return them to wait Mexico, so they simply have to release them in to the US. Many are pregnant or have children with them.
The English-language media in the US does not pay much attention unless a very large caravan is coming. However, many people can come as individuals or in small groups. I believe it is generally the case that more come in small groups than come in large caravans. Unfortunately, just because a large caravan is not on the way does not mean their is no problem at the border.
I think the migrant caravans were used as a weapon to embarrass the Trump administration. With Biden in office illegal immigration and fake asylum seekers may be less obvious, but still just as bad if not worse as before Trump was able to get it under control. Biden is undoing much of what Trump did to stop illegal immigration and fake asylum seeking.
Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa, called “Comandante”, rebukes the Guatemalan government for blocking the Caravan from Honduras in January, 2021. El Comandante is a leader of the Caravans, not the only or main leader, but his way of thinking is no doubt similar of that of the other Caravan leaders.
El Comandante is the Caravan organizer, who presented a letter to the US embassy in December of 2018, demanding $50K per person, if they would agree to go home. Considering the amount of money the Government ended up spending on fake refugees from Central America, that may have been a fair deal! LoL.
He is called comandante like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez were and, in fact, he sounds like a communist and anarchist.
Alfonso is a terrorist who lives in Mexico, where he was granted asylum after being accused of a terrorist attack in 1987 in Honduras, his homeland. He planted a bomb in a Chinese restaurant where six American soldiers and contractors were eating, injuring two of them.
He was a member of a leftist terrorist group, Revolutionary Popular Forces Lorenzo Zelaya, that hijacked an airliner in the 1982.

Several thousand fake refugees poured across the border from Honduras to Guatemala on the night of January 15th. The video below shows some of them crossing. Below that, there is an article that has been translated from Spanish into English, which claims more than 6,000 crossed and 3,000 more are reportedly on the way. In the video, the police at first block the asylum fraudsters, but then later step aside and allow them to cross the border without proper documents or Covid-19 test results.
Note that two international agencies, the United Nations and Red Cross, are providing assistance to the asylum fraudsters in their trip north to the promised land. The is the second caravan that has crossed in recent days. The first one was much smaller and is already in Mexico. The Mexico has sent hundreds of national guardsmen to the border, reportedly to attempt to stop this crossing.
Migrant caravan: more than 6 thousand Hondurans entered Guatemala and rest in the country before continuing to the United States.
Thousands of migrants who travel on foot from Honduras to the United States were moving through Guatemala this Saturday, January 16, preparing to go to Mexico, the next obstacle to overcome in search of better living conditions, which they long to receive from the future government of Joe Biden.
On the night of Friday, January 15, some 6,000 migrants managed to cross the border line in El Florido, 220 km east of Guatemala City, after yielding to police controls. The figure was provided by the Guatemalan Migration Institute.
On the morning of Saturday, January 16, there were still more migrants gathering at that border crossing to enter, according to official reports.
Despite the fact that a decree empowered the police to use force to contain the advance on Friday, the decision to open the way was made after verifying that there were many families with children in the group, according to what a police chief told AFP. The caravan ignored the requirement to present documents and a negative COVID-19 test.
In a report presented this Saturday, January 16, at 11:15 a.m., staff from the Guatemalan Migration Institute indicated that they expect more than 3,000 Hondurans to come the next day.
That would raise the figure and register 9 thousand Honduran migrants in the national territory (Guatemala) in less than 48 hours.
The Road to Mexico
After resting in the surroundings, several groups entered Guatemalan territory, reaching Jocotán, Chiquimula department, bordering Honduras. Some went in search of institutions to support migrants, and others received support from the Red Cross and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
“I decided to go to the United States because in my country there is no work, there is nothing, and I have to leave because the pandemic and hurricanes destroyed the country,” 20-year-old Honduran Carlos Flores explained to AFP.
The migrants say they are fleeing a Honduras heavily hit by the passage of hurricanes Eta and Iota in November and the lack of employment caused by the pandemic, which adds to the endemic evils of a country riddled by violence associated with gangs and the drug trafficking.
Almost all carry backpacks with their few belongings and most of them wear sandals. On the way, it is common to hear them chanting “out JOH”, the initials of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández, whom they blame for their situation.
“I have come on foot, penniless, suffering. Thank God we are now going here in Guatemala, now to leave (to the United States) ”, Agustina Rodríguez, 40, told the press.
Most of them left at dawn on Friday from the San Pedro Sula bus station, in northern Honduras, the usual starting point of caravans.
“We came about 400 (in his group), some grabbed from other sides, they all scattered. I had to go through some rivers with the wet clothes that I wear there. When they have given us food, we have eaten and, when not, we have endured hunger ”, added Agustina.
Most go on foot and some ask for a “hitchhiking” ride. On their way, they will still run into several police control checkpoints within Guatemala before reaching the border with Mexico, which has already announced that “it will not allow the irregular entry of caravans of migrants” and deployed 500 agents in Chiapas and Tabasco, border states with Guatemala.
After traveling 450 km within Guatemala, the bulk of the caravan will try to enter Mexico through the border crossing of Tecún Umán (southwest), according to the Migration Office.
Many participants in this caravan are convinced that Joe Biden, who assumes the presidency of the United States on January 20, will be more flexible than his predecessor, Donald Trump, with the immigration rules.
But Washington has already ruled out the possibility of special treatment. “Don’t waste your time and money and don’t risk your health and safety.” “It’s a deadly trip,” said Acting Commissioner of the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Mark A. Morgan.
Trump himself extended the “national emergency” on the border with Mexico on Friday, first imposed in February 2019 to unlock funds and build his much-heralded wall.
“More action is needed to address the humanitarian crisis and control illegal migration and the flow of narcotics and criminals,” said a statement from the White House.
More than a dozen caravans, some with thousands of migrants, have left Honduras since October 2018, but have encountered thousands of US military and border guards positioned on the southern border with Mexico by Trump.
However, through calls on social networks they insist on making this long journey that, if completed, will have made them travel more than 5,000 km (3,000 miles).
About 3,000 fake refugees have left Honduras headed for the border of the United States. Some reports say they have already broken through the Guatemalan border. Mexico has sent about 1,000 national guardsmen to try to stop them at the Mexican border with Guatemala.
This new update at the link below states that this caravan was stopped at the border by Guatemalan police and sent back to Honduras in buses.
Caravans of Fake Refugees are already forming in southern Mexico and Mexican authorities are not stopping the illegal migrants any longer. This report is about a small group of about 100 persons, but the caravans could soon become much larger. This news report is from 1/1/2021.

Biden is cited in this report as planning to revoke Trump’s restrictions on fraudulent asylum seekers in about six months after he takes office and restore the old asylum system, which was so easily abused by those who just wanted to enter the US illegally to work illegally or for other nefarious reasons. This will certainly revive the so-called migrant caravans from Central America.
He is discouraging people form coming at this time, because it will take some time to dismantle the Trump restrictions and restore the more lax, fraud-ridden, asylum system. Also, it would be a great embarrassment to him and animate his opposition, if huge caravans show up at our borders as soon as he takes office. So, he apparently wants to reopen the borders gradually over some months in a more orderly way.
Enrique Morones is the Founder of the Border Angels, a group that promotes and aids illegal immigration and asylum fraud. He says in this video that he is not a hyphenated Mexican-American, but identifies proudly as 100% Mexican. Morones is obviously embarrassed by his American citizenship. Apologetically, he says his US citizenship is only birth, that he had no choice in where he was born.
This video was posted by the Mexican Consulate in San Diego, on the occasion of their giving Morones the Othli Award in 2009. The award is one of the highest honors given to Mexicans living abroad. The Ohtli Award recognizes Mexican expatriots who promote the interest of Mexicans and Mexican culture in the United States and other countries.
Morones is a subversive, anti-American propagandist, who has been promoting illegal immigration and aiding illegal aliens and fraudulent refugees trafficked by cartels for over 30 years. In the next video, he denied being American on CNN Latino:
Mexico enacted a dual citizenship law to enhance Mexican influence in the United States. The United States does not actually recognize dual citizenship. The oath of nationalization still requires new citizens to renounce allegiance to any other country. The authorities just ignore dual citizenship and don’t enforce the law.
The benefits we have as American citizens, should be reserved for American citizens only, who have a overriding interest in the welfare of our country, not for those who want to promote the interests of another country to the detriment of our own welfare.
This article states that there are no large numbers of caravaners at the usual place they cross. Another website Herald of Mexico had claimed yesterday that about a 1,000 were waiting there. It is speculated that Honduras and El Salvador are breaking up the large groups and that the caravaners may be crossing in a dispersed way in small groups in a so-called “ant operation”. If they slip across in small groups potentially they could all meet up somewhere north of the Mexican border at some designated place. However, if this is what’s happening the Mexican National Guard can also just round them up wherever the get back together. The Mexican National Guard has a lot of resources. I think the caravan may just be fizzling out at this time.
Below is the English translation of an article by Diario del Sur.
There is no information on this new exodus, they could have changed strategy and are arriving in small groups to Mexico.
Alejandro Gómez | Diario del Sur
It is not clear the Devel’s Caravan is forming, since there is no concentration of people in Tecún Umán waiting for the group as has traditionally happened with the previous exoduses; It is presumed that this group was broken up by the authorities of El Salvador and Honduras themselves and that they could be traveling in small groups.
In an interview, Luis García Villagrán, director of the Center for Human Dignity, said that they have gone to the border municipality of Guatemala to meet with the migrants and that if they are going to enter Mexico, they should do so in an orderly and legal manner; However, he said that he did not find the large groups as he has been claimed in some media.
According to the group, it was dismantled by their country of origin and now they are only arriving in small groups that are undergoing and “ant operation” on Mexican soil so as not to attract the attention of the authorities.
On the other hand, he informed that he will file a lawsuit against the National Migration Institute (INM) for not allowing him to enter the 21st Century Migration Station with a judicial mandate.
He explained that this time he did not arrive as an activist but as a legal representative of a Honduran migrant who filed his claim for protection and to not be deported by the INM.
“We come with an claim from the Third District Court that grants us the suspension of the claimed act so that José Luis N is not deported, who was the only one who ratified his claim after being detained by the National Guard in Frontera Hidalgo,” he said.
He indicated that he asked to speak with his defendant but they only passed it to him on the EMS-XXI telephone and that does not guarantee that he is well or if it was actually José Luis N who spoke to him.
‘I do not know that fact and therefore I will proceed legally against the National Migration Institute with the appropriate judge for the lack of communication and mental torture to which the partner we are representing is being subjected,’ he said.
He added, ‘We are going to file criminal charges with the Attorney General of the Republic against the director of the immigration station with the surname, “Damiano”, the legal officer and the delegate, “Yadira de los Santos”.’
García Villagrán said, it is unfortunate that the INM continues to commit such abuses and against migrants who are leaving their home country out of necessity.
Another thousand fake refugees have shown up at the border on 2/2/2020 wanting to take revenge on the Mexican National Guard for earlier treatment of the first caravan that they turned back. This is in addition to about 100 that crossed into Guatemala, yesterday, in a different location. Another fracas with the Mexican National Guard may be developing.
NOTE: Now two days later, there has not been any confirming reports of this news, yet, as of 2/5/2020. It is just this one website, saying there are a thousand fake refugees waiting at the border at Tecan Uman on the Mexican Border for more to come. It looks like it could turn out to be fake news. Maybe this “Herald of Mexico” site is wildly exaggerating in order try to to encourage more to caravaners to assemble.
There have been multiple reports confirming that only a much smaller group of about 100 crossed the border from Honduras into Guatemala in another place, Agua Caliente. It is not clear whether they ever crossed the border into Mexico. If so, they may slipped into Mexico in small groups.

Migrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua ready to enter Mexico through the border line with Guatemala
Approximately one thousand Central Americans await more people on the border line between Mexico and Guatemala, to organize themselves by caravan and cross the Suchiate River; Another group in Tapachula also threatens to join.
Although there are 170 people who left San Pedro Sula, Honduras, last Friday, via WhatsApp they were organized to await those arriving from El Salvador and Nicaragua. ‘They have arrived in small groups throughout the weekend,’ said authorities from Suchiate, Chiapas.
They are coming for revenge,’ added activist Luis García Villagrán. He said that many of those deported in the first caravan of 2020, return to the border line with all the intention of facing the National Guard, who maintain a permanent surveillance fence.
“We are warning that this caravan has been very manipulated to confront (the National Guard). It is the perfect pretext of the authorities to repress them, leave them without the right to shelter and deport them. ” They expect this new exodus to try to enter the country on Monday.
A new caravan, the second of 2020 left Honduras early in the morning of January 31, 2020. Organized on social networks, reportedly, it has only 150 members at this time, but the first caravan of 2020 also started small and grew to thousands as it neared the Mexican border. The president of Mexico has warned them to expect the same treatment as the first caravan received, which appears to have been pretty effectively disrupted by the Mexican National Guard.
The translation to English of the the linked article follows:
A group made up of around 150 people, including men, youths and women with their children in tow, left this Friday from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, in the second migrant caravan of 2020, self-styled ‘caravan of the devil’, which will try to reach the United States fleeing poverty and the dangers of their home country.
When attending an anonymous call issued on social networks, migrants, mostly from Honduras, met on Thursday night in the metropolitan bus terminal, where they spent the night to leave the next day as part of the ‘devil’s caravan’ heading to Mexico, as reported by the website, Digital Tiempo (Digital Times).
– Despite the restrictions that the members of the first migrant caravan faced with the Governments of Guatemala and Mexico, a Honduran citizen consulted by local media said that “the road to the north is dangerous, but it is more dangerous to live in Honduras’.
Preparations for the ‘devil’s caravan’
Last night when they began to gather from various departments near San Pedro Sula, migrants from the ‘devil’s caravan’ said they learned about this caravan through social networks, but that they do not know in which direction they are going to go, whether to Agua Caliente, in Ocotepeque or Corintos in Omoa Cortés, reported the Tribuna.
– Some media in Honduras have indicated that migrants who were returned from the first caravan and possibly others arriving from El Salvador have also joined this march.
With backpacks on their shoulders, the members of the ‘caravan of the devil’ will go to Guatemala, where only people who carry their personal documents and those who manage to enter (by some other method) will arrive. When they reach the Mexican border, they will be deported back to their home country, predicted the Tiempo Digital.
In a recent report issued by the Consular and Migratory Observatory of Honduras (Conmigho) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of that same Central American country, it was estimated that from January 1 to 26, around 5,615 Hondurans demanded to enter Mexico in order to transit to the United States.
