A group of women and children from the migrant caravan are expected to arrive in Mexicali, on the Mexican side of the US border, sometime Tuesday after an overnight bus trip from Hermosillo, in Mexico’s Sonora state.[…]
The first group of migrants to arrive at the border will be housed at Hotel Migrante, just yards from the US border. The two-story building, which takes up almost an entire block, is able to house hundreds of migrants and sits above a bar and restaurant.
Sergio Tamai, director of Hotel Migrante and Angeles Sin Fronteras, a migrant aid group, said they were more than willing and able to house the migrants. They were also preparing for more people to come later in the day or Wednesday.
He said the group had been told to expect 250 people Tuesday on buses, and that another 400 people who are traveling atop trains should arrive shortly after. The hotel, he said, could accommodate as many as 600; the overflow can easily be accommodated at other nearby locations, he said.
On Tuesday morning, he was yelling at volunteers to start blocking off parking spaces in front of the building for expected government vehicles, while a woman ran upstairs with her arms weighed down with blankets.
On Monday, the Department of Homeland Security vowed to arrest and prosecute the caravan of illegal aliens currently marching through Mexico if they enter the United States.
President Trump unleashed on the caravan of illegals in a pair of tweets Monday morning.
POTUS Trump said he instructed the DHS to NOT let these large caravans into the US, calleing it a “disgrace,” then said we need a wall.
About a month ago, a caravan army of illegal aliens, mostly from Central America, entered Mexico through the Guatemalan border with a goal of reaching the Unites States where they would seek asylum.
Although the number of aliens marching to the US border has reduced from the original 1,500 or so, many still plan to seek asylum from the United States.
In early April, President Trump signed the proclamation directing the National Guard be deployed to the Mexican border.
On Sunday, Fox News reported about 50 Central American migrants had already reached the US border.
