WINNING! ‘Mexico Has Become Trump’s Wall’: Migrant Caravan Stopped by Troops at Border With Guatemala

New caravans of migrants have been stopped cold by Mexican national guard forces at the border with Guatemala, prompting one reporter to observe Mexico has become President Trump’s wall.

A caravan of about 4,000 migrants that originated in Honduras last week tried a different crossing point at the Mexican border with Guatemala than previous caravans but were met by Mexican forces that blocked efforts to rush the border crossing on Saturday.

The migrants regrouped and crossed the Suchiate River on Monday only to again be met by Mexican forces.

Mexico is offering to screen migrants for entry into Mexico, which some have accepted, however most will end up being deported.

El Faro reporter Carlos Martinez reported on the new ‘wall’, “This is the complete story about the caravan that failed. Mexico fulfills its role as Trump’s wall:”

Translated excerpt:

The wall of the Southern Border swallowed the last caravan. He extinguished it, left no trace of it, absorbed it whole in a sigh. And announces that he will deport her.

Of the almost four thousand people who left San Pedro Sula four days ago in Honduras, there are only crumbs scattered on the map of Guatemala and a few wandering the Mexican south wandering, with no one to call them a caravan. Mexico proved to be the efficient wall that promised the White House of Donald Trump to contain Central American migration.

…This mass exodus will be, perhaps, the last. Or at least it will mark a very clear before and after: if before Central American walkers dreamed of crossing the American wall of Tijuana and were desperate to understand that these cold cans are immovable, they will now dream of crossing the Mexican wall. The Border, thus with capital letters, moved towards the south equally immovable and immovable…

…A promise fulfilled from Mexico to President Trump, who has made Mesoamerica as his sentinel.

Video posted Monday shows Mexican forces stopping migrants from illegally entering Mexico.

The Guardian reported last week the U.S. is working with Guatemala and Honduras to return migrants.

Guatemalan police accompanied by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have swept up hundreds of migrants, returning them to the Honduran border and in effect dashing their plans to travel together in a “caravan” to the United States.

Other, smaller groups traveled on in dribs and drabs in a movement involving several thousand people but very different from previous caravans.

Praying and singing songs, the group of 300 migrants – adults, teens and young children – had set out from a shelter in Entre Rios under rainy skies before dawn and walked about six hours before stopping in the town of Morales to eat and rest. There they were challenged by police, loaded on to buses and returned to the border to register under rules governing freedom of travel between Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua.

Guatemalan police officers said the United States paid for the buses.

This is what winning the battle against mass illegal immigration looks like.
