Trump put back 60-70 thousand mostly fraudulent asylum seekers into Mexico to await court hearings, instead of allowing them to simply disappear into the US and live illegally with little chance of being deported. Biden’s order that the fake refugees should be welcomed back into the US to live illegally is attracting more hordes to the border, hoping to obtain a free pass into the United States. DHS has told their sub agencies that have to react immediately to be ready — to welcome, nurture and take care of — the wave that is coming.
The number of fake refugees being released into the US jumped in the last few days from 25 to 100 in Brownsville and probably the two other sites when they are returned, McAllen and San Diego. We can expect this number to continue to grow as more head to the border. They do not need to travel to the border in a large caravan, which will attract unwanted media attention. They can also come as individuals and in small groups and that is the most common way they have traveled to the border traditionally.
This news report by Univision states that, under Biden’s policies, known fake refugees are held only for one night and then released into the U.S. Reportedly pregnant women and families are being allowed into the U.S. in this way. Adults and unaccompanied minors are being sent back to Mexico.
In a later report, the reporter said that that the so-called “refugees” are being tested for for Covid-19 if they have symptoms and that the Border Patrol was preparing for a “large wave” of refugees that may be come in the next days.
If this is true that they are just keeping them overnight and releasing them the next day, there would not seem to be time to give them a “credible fear” interview, which I believe is required by law. They are just giving them a court date and releasing them into the US.
Also the rules for deportation from the interior of the US are being relaxed by Biden and this is expected to cause a dramatic reduction in the number of deportations. Even before the new deportation rules, only a small fraction of the tens of millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. were at any risk of being deported back to their homeland. This is the new memo that reduces deportations even more.
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.
