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.
Military tension in Tapachula due to possible caravan of Cubans and other migrants
A new migrant caravan would leave Honduras this week
Migrant Cubans continue to try to obtain a humanitarian visa in the city of Tapachula, on the border with Guatemala, to be able to move legally in Mexican territory to the United States.
Local media reports indicate that since December 23, hundreds of undocumented immigrants from the island and Central America have tried to process the document at the offices of the National Institute of Migration (INM).
The desperation for this situation caused a fight between Cubans and Hondurans who gathered enter these offices a few days ago.
On that occasion, the Mexican authorities decided to suspend the service, claiming that the migrants were not complying with the preventive measures to avoid contagion of the Covid-19 coronavirus.
The Reuters agency reported that given the possibility of a new migrant caravan forming for traveling to the border between Mexico and the United States, the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador deployed riot control teams in that city to prevent the advance of the contingent.
In addition, Guatemalan and Honduran authorities reported that they will also position troops from their respective armies to prevent the advance of a caravan from Central America.
The caravan that is supposed to leave Honduras this week led to a meeting on Monday between authorities from this country, El Salvador, Guatemala and Mexico in order to establish a comprehensive plan towards this situation.
“We just want them to give us an answer,” said a Cuban woman in a protest that was organized in front of the aforementioned INM offices and was captured by the cameras of said agency.
In addition, another Cuban citizen assured that the migrants will not move from the vicinity of the offices until they receive a response regarding their visa applications.
A Cuban woman interviewed by local media last week assured that several of her compatriots are initiating procedures at the INM and the Mexican Commission for Aid to Refugees so that they can legally be in Mexico.
She also said that at the moment thousands of others are crossing Central America and then entering Mexican territory.
A few hours after the end of 2020, hundreds of Cubans jumped over the controls of the Paso del Norte international bridge, located in Ciudad Juárez, to demand asylum in the United States. This caused the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency to activate one of its riot groups to prevent illegal entry into the United States.
Most migrants are confident that during the first days of Joe Biden’s administration, favorable immigration measures will be established for entering the United States, however, experts assure that this will not happen soon and for a while the policies established by Donald Trump will continue.

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.
This is the direct link to the video on Bitchute, in case you want to share or embed that.
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.
