The future of migrant caravans

"More grand caravan is one of those phrases which feels intractable associated with the recently elapsed donald trump era a term which decade sense will like coffee or very stateful genius or four seasons total landscaping separate. Those who can recall this benighted epoch. From those born too late or those who not altogether unreasonably drank too much the migrant caravan. You may recall was one of the vast menagerie of bogeymen and hobgoblins which trump and his media cheerleaders deployed to profitably inflame. The voters and viewers the caravan was telling a marauding horde of insurgents bent on taking your jobs stealing your women perpetrating terrorism proselytizing communism or whatever paranoid fantasy. You were having yourself. The migrant caravan was reason to build that wall. Lock up your daughters stay tuned to fox. Welcome the tucker. Carlson vote republican and generally run around yelping to set by angry wasps. Shortly after having set fire to your own trousers another migrant caravan is on the move now it will be instructive and hopefully at least somewhat heartening to see how the administration of donald trump successor response before we get into that however it's probably proper to be clear about what we mean when we say migrant caravan as outlined above it has been repeatedly slammed up into something other than what it is by various people and organizations whose good faith cannot alas always be taken for granted. Thousands of central american migrants are vowing to continue their march to the us border even though president trump wants to turn them away the migrant caravans about which donald trump became agitated where a phenomenon which pete in late two thousand and eighteen. They were mass trudges of several thousand migrants setting out from central america and plotting doggedly towards the united states where they hope to find safety perchance prosperity. The constituents off the caravans were from honduras. Guatemala nicaragua el salvador and mexico. All countries offering the less fortunate citizens plentiful reasons for leaving political instability gangs crop failure crime drugs poverty etc. The caravan on the move right now is estimated at some eight thousand strong and appears to have originated in the honduran city of san pedro. Soula as off this broadcast. Its chances of reaching its goal. Mexico's border with the united states appears slender early this week. The caravan was intercepted as it crossed. Guatemala guatemalan military and police who detained hundreds of migrants and scattered others with teargas. Nearly a thousand people have already been sent back to honduras and guatemala's chief immigration official modena's has laid down a hardline declaring that you cannot and will not get through president joe. Biden's rhetorical response will be more humane and compassionate the president donald trump's low though that represents but the outcome might not be much different biden's domestic policy advisor. Susan rice has already pointedly given interviews to spanish language media emphasizing that nobody should assume that the us mexico border will be flung. Open on day one. The administration biden previously. Served that of president. Barrack obama deported more than three million people. This latest caravan is obviously not the first large scale migrant and refugee x. flow of times and it won't be the lost. It seems reasonable to assume indeed that any noteworthy disparity in covid nineteen vaccinations between rich countries and poor ones will lead to still further people hitting the road and given what would be reasonable concerns about spreading the virus. Prompt even less compromising responses from destination countries than some. We have already seen what will likely not happen. Regrettably will be the large scale descent of any com- clear-headed logic on the subject in the united states or anywhere else. Those who are furiously against immigration will continue to insist that imigrants ra menace that asylum seekers. Bogus that we should build walls and turn around boats. Those who are passionately in favour of immigration will continue refusing to countenance the idea that countries are entitled to make decisions about who comes and who goes and indeed that it's better that countries do as transparent legal process around migration and asylum lynn's immigrants and refugees va legitimacy they need and deserve and deprives shrieking xenophobes of oxygen as is the case with this and far too many other issues however the loudest voices on both sides will be largely motivated not by their actual opinions on the issue by the visceral loathing of their domestic political opponents and the caravans and the boats will keep coming

Iota still a threat after killing dozens in Central America

"A set of devastating hurricanes have pummeled central america on november third hurricane bertha. I struck nicaragua and then made its way through honduras in guatemala. According to the red cross more than two million people in the region were affected by floods and landslides caused by the hurricane and then this week another hurricane hurricane iota made landfall in central america delivering yet another blow to the region. The two storms back to back aren't only devastating to communities in central america but are also complicating efforts to mitigate covid nineteen joining us. Now to talk about what's happening on the ground is jeff ernst a freelance journalists base in honduras. Jeff thanks for being with us after having me. So what are conditions on the ground in honduras right now right now. Much of honduras is is underwater Particularly in the northwest soula valley region which is home to about two million people and putting the second largest in honduras and pedro soula as really the motor of of the country. So the fact that so much of this area in particular is underwater is really indicative of how damaging is given that roughly forty percent of the gdp or more is produced in this region but really After i iota we have much of a widespread damage Across the whole country was a much larger storm so just particularly crest the north coast and the west. They're still a rising waters. Some parts We've last a lot of bridges and roads and other infrastructure and as many people are currently displaced by the flooding. The storm's first struck nicaragua before going through honduras and guatemala. What were the effects in those two countries with evita it. It was damaging but it went through a pretty lowly populated area of nicaragua but iota so much larger that it really hit harder in nicaragua. And even the wins were harder to so nicaragua. We're seeing pretty widespread damage flooding even in the capital of managua and south of it so nicaragua's pretty devastated this point. You you've been reporting on This region in honduras for awhile have. How have the government's responded to effort on the ground. The the government's response has been heavily criticised ahead of eight to actually scheduled the special holiday for that week. In order to try to promote domestic tourism and and stimulate the economy which has been really hit hard by the covid nineteen pandemic and there was a clear reticence by the government to cancel that vacation and so they did not emit alerts or or evacuation orders which led to tens of thousands of people completely caught off guard been and then ended up getting trapped on the roads some for as many as five days and of course that led to more deaths which we really don't know how much yet because the water was never even able to fully recede from eight to before we got hit by iota So there's really some clear negligence by the government here and then with in terms of responding. They're they're completely overwhelmed By it and a complete clearly unprepared and missouri question of how they're spending the resources government just a year ago or just from israel this for war that really has has seen of her for country like and yet they're emergency response. Units doesn't have the votes necessary to be able to deal with the strong currents that we're seen from the flooding in order to rescue people in until the water gets down. Do people are very upset. Definitely more than ever with the government and and this could definitely to even more political instability than we've seen down here in the past and that political instability could also spur more Migration out of the region is that right coming towards A whether that's the united states are moving towards mexico or other places as people try to survive absolutely. There's already people organizing on social media caravans That looks like they're planning for january most of them Whether or not that materializes There's just no doubt. We're going to see an uptick in migration over the next year particularly as covy nineteen travel restrictions are eased You know. I talked to so many people already particularly the young people Who just see no opportunity They have no work and now they've lost everything so they really have nothing to lose And they see migrating as the quickest way to be able to help to their families to rebuild and recoup everything. They've lost the united states government. has limited at least under the trump administration migration from many of these countries at the same time it's ass many central american countries to help it with its asylum policies Has the us. Government sent any aid to these countries as they struggle to deal with the blows from these hurricanes the lack of leadership from the us Following these crisis is really shocking. There's been no word from the state department or from the white house other than us aid which is down here. Most recently after i iota they designated seventeen million dollars through the region half of which is going to honduras and then also the. Us military base. Don't here has been a source of of rescue missions which has definitely been very helpful but seventeen million dollars when we're talking about billions and billions dollars damage and really in nine hundred ninety eight when hurricane mitch hit which was the worst natural disaster in central america to date it was. Us leadership that mobilized support from the global community and that is completely lacking at this point. president-elect biden has expressed is concerned and support for the region. So there's hope that when he takes office he will take that traditional leadership role of the. Us to help one of its neighbors. I'll be watching to see how this pans out.

Like again, no plan b like all in immediately. And we're both like that.

And then it was around the time where he started to say, you know, you're producing and I said, well, you know, I actually really love. To produce. Now that you say that and so one day he came home from work. And he said, you know, I heard the story on the radio that's about there was about a sex house. That was busted not so far from where we lived in LA, and he said, and they say there's forty four known sex houses in the LA area. And so obviously there's like a ton that are unknown.

So that you really keep. P- the humanity intact. Yeah. You meet her. I you don't meet her circumstances. In terms of like, where she ends up, you meet her where she's at an UN start understanding, the why why would someone be lured into such a, you know, high risk situation will because we're where she's from which we meet known in on doors, and San Pedro Soula is known as the murder capital of the world. You know, she lives in extreme poverty. She doesn't have any family. She has dreams aspirations. And if you know if if she could get anywhere, but here, maybe she could make it. And I mean, I relate I relate to wanting to do something. And I'm sure you, you know, it's it's a human thing to say, I I want something more in my life. And like, what can I do to have it? And she ends up meeting this cute. Boy who says, hey, I can bring you to America. I have an aunt that lives in America. You know, you you've got something special. You shouldn't be here you should be in America. And so she decides to take the risk and travel with him from Honduras through auto, Allah. All through Mexico and into America, and it was upon that that passing from Tijuana into America that she starts to realize that something's not right and the audience kind of realizes that something's not right? And it's it's the moment that she's sold into into sex trafficking. And the approach really the Michael thought the approach that I think will work here is is for you to see the innocence of this person. And the circumstances of this person and feel the sort of elation of perhaps having the opportunity to have something more. So so close, that's right. And then just having it like rich from you, which is which is the the the situation for the reality for so many people sold into human trafficking and sex trafficking. You know, the traffickers prey on the most vulnerable of society. I mean, people who are destitute who are already living in abusive situations who are runaways who have nothing, and they sort of dangle a carrot. Hey, I have something I can help you. And then all of a sudden like you're you're just in a basement somewhere and drugged and sort of held against your will. Or brainwashed so much that you feel like a lot of a lot of times..

"It is super easy go to any global get started. That's any pay dot global as we continue here. The news reporting that apparently the first waves of the migrant caravan have arrived at the US Mexican border near Tijuana as of yesterday, but the vast majority of central Americans remain more than thousand miles away trying to pick up their pace in their quest to seek asylum. The roughly three hundred fifty migrants reached the border were part of a smaller splinter groups who grew impatient. With the caravans progress preferring to forego security of traveling numbers to more quickly file their asylum claims in the United States, according to local authorities and migrant advocates so they basically wanted to get there before the crowd. And maybe actually get in before this the rest of this maybe fourteen thousand estimate get there the estimates. Have they're all over ranged wildly. I mean, they're now saying five thousand here in this story, but I did see one reporter fourteen thousand a couple of weeks ago. But that was after they were saying seven thousand so saying here an estimated five thousand migrants spent Monday night in the central Mexican city of Guadalajara before enduring another round of frustration during their attempts to move farther north on Tuesday, more than two thousand more migrants have received temporary visas to stay in Mexico. State government police go organized buses to take the migrants to the next state to the north now where they expect to have other buses waiting for them to continue the trek north, according to a statement from headless in frontier us a migrant advocacy group traveling with the caravan. And ostensibly the group that started the caravan that essentially fomented the creation of it down in Honduras. The buses dropped off the migrants fifty five miles away from neon leaving the migrants stranded. Imprint Tara said in a statement quote. This is a clear decision by the state government to get us out of Guadalajara it puts at risk. The physical integrity security and health at thousands of families with children were being left in the darkness of the early morning despite the new round of difficulties. Well, ahora Mark the halfway milestone for the caravan which set out October twelfth, so yeah, maybe you're right Daryl over the whole time. It may take about two months to get through all of Mexico, Mexico and Honduras can they start from Honduras starting October twelfth from San Pedro Soula Honduras has traveled roughly fourteen hundred miles so far caravan inch through Central America and southern Mexico enduring brutal, heat, torrential downpours and logistical complications. Now Conan you had said earlier that there's a certain conspiracy theory here suggesting that this group of migrants doesn't even exist that you want to see evidence, you don't believe the photographs.

Thousands of clerics are in the center of a political storm as Ukraine prepares to sever ties to the Russian Orthodox church. And we'll also find out how the improved relationship between Macedonia and Greece is really taking off. That's what the head right here on the globalist live from London. The US is sending five thousand two hundred troops to the US border with Mexico, though there to meet an oncoming caravan of migrants numbering is around food thousand people mostly originating from Honduras and Guatemala, the combo set of from the Honduran city of San Pedro Soula on the thirteenth of October is currently traveling through Mexico, and is around a thousand miles or a few weeks from the US still with military reinforcements sent by Donald Trump now arriving the debate of immigration in the US is reaching a head just as a pivotal midtown. Midterm votes are set to take place next week which owning us to tell us how the US is response to the situation could help shape that vote is Brian class. Assistant professor in global politics at UCLA and co author of how to rig an election, Brian thanks so much for coming in now as well as troops. There are reports of armed vigilantes also heading to the border. Are we expecting a confrontation could this get very ugly? We heard Trump they're talking about consider. Fox's as rifles. I mean, I think this is the entire story is fear mongering. And I think this is fear mongering to what what what these people are doing is. They're walking to the border to claim a Silom, which is you know, despite what Trump says Ray says this is illegal. It's actually exactly what the law says to do. It says to go to a border entry point ask for asylum and get processed accordingly. That's what they're doing. So they're not trying to sneak across the border. I mean, we know exactly where they are. They're not trying to attack border patrol agents. They're just trying to get to the border to climb asylum. So Trump saying that if they throw rocks, we will shoot them. I mean, it's probably a war crime. But beyond that, it's also one of these things where it's not likely to happen because the military that's been sent there under rules of engagement cannot fire punish people and should not actually interact with them. They're supposed to provide logistical support. But it is testament to the fact that there are more soldiers going there are people in the caravan. How ridiculous this overreaction is. I mean, he's really Trump has really ratcheted up the racist rhetoric in the last couple of days, and it's all centered around immigration, clearly the deployment cheuse now possibly weeks before the arrival of the caravans calculated to send a message before the midterms. As is this new television commercial, can you give us some detail on what's been cooled the.

"There are many of those pushes and all of them are pretty strong. So we'll start. With the one that's talked about a lot and we'll focus on hunters. You know, one of the first big push factors is the security threats. And when you look at Passy VP apprehension data, and where people are coming from an Honduras. It's traditionally been the big cities, I'm Pedro Soula Antigua seek out by now in these big cities. There are group's MS thirteen by the coach, oh, these gangs that control territory and extort people who are living in the territory that they control now four hundred this actually I'll use an example of someone who I met in technique. Oh who is fleeing from violence? He was a taxi driver who operated his taxis in zone that was controlled by criminal group. Now, these group the I think it was MS thirteen was the group who came and asked him for money every week the quote them, and he said that he had to pay. Say just over half the amount of money he made every week to the gangs. So just to to pause on that for a second. You know, the president talks about MS thirteen all the time. And he talks about, you know, maybe Nancy Pelosi is a member, right and Chuck Schumer kind of like a joined up with MS thirteen. And and the result of the way the president talks about MS thirteen is some people really tune out. Right. Whenever it's mentioned. And it's almost like it's it's demagoguery and nothing else. This is a serious security problem. And you know, it's it's kind of a new joke organization, even if President Trump is trying to sort of turn it into a political talking point, you're describing a situation in which somebody's walking thousand miles to get away from MS thirteen. Yes. The number one victims for the MS thirteen and for its rival. Buddy of the show are central Americans. This is where the groups have their strongest presence and the real victims of the people that live in the neighborhoods in Central American cities, where they control territory, so for this particular taxi driver, he left the push factor for him was not paying the quota the push factor for him was that the gang would became angry at the taxi drivers in general and the weekend before he loved they came up to a meeting. I think it was a meeting of of taxi drivers or they found the taxi drivers across the city and they killed. He told me sixteen of them in one weekend. And so when you have sixteen of your colleagues who are murdered in weekend. That's when he said, I'm out I'm done, and that was the push factor that drove him out of hunters. And there are other cases, I actually met bus drivers who had similar stories. I met two people who had left because incited particularly that really violent weekend is being. The moment when they decided some of them still had their they'd taken their their credentials that labeled them as a taxi driver or as a bus driver to be able to use in their asylum cases in the United States to say this gang was coming..

"The Associated Press is reporting from the Guatemala side of the Mexico Guatemala border migrants. Traveling in a mass caravan burst through the border fence. Mexican authorities deployed tear gas. They were able to push most of that crowd back about fifty people were able to get through before officers were able to re close the border. There are easily three thousand migrants in this caravan and the chaos has continued there were folks actually jumping off the bridge into the river. They organized a rope gray rope brigade excuse me to get across the water. Some people were floating across on rafts operated by local residents who usually charge a dollar or two to make the crossing. You can imagine. There's there's every possible story here. The Associated Press talks to a man named Christian. He's thirty four year old cell phone repairman from San Pedro Soula. He says he left Honduras because gang members had started demanding protection money from him as much as a fifth of his income. And he finally said he can't do it. And he took his four daughters closed his business and started heading north. He is hoping that he can get refugee status in Mexico. Rather than coming to the United States. Most of the caravan though, wants to get to the US. It looks like that line that was put up by Mexican authorities may not have held and that more migrants are getting through at this point not all three thousand to be sure, but there's going to be another caravan coming towards the US Mexico border and the president of the United States has said that if these migrants arrive at the border and try to crash the gates into America so to speak. That he's considering deploying the military to stop that caravan. I am. I'm really wary of this. I am I am concerned. First of all about the constitutionality of using the military in this way. And I've heard spirited and intelligent arguments about why it would be appropriate. I'm concerned that our existing border. Authorities aren't enough to deal with a wave of bodies of. This magnitude not that they aren't hard working not that they are doing a great job. But. This is a this is a major push. This is a lot of people trying to get through. And I don't know that we've got the staffing or the technology to stand up to it adequately. And when you hear stories like Christians, the gangs, basically ran them out of his own town because he couldn't afford to pay them protection money and feed his daughters. He had to close a business this. This isn't just this isn't a Brown collar day laborer. This is a guy who was running a cell phone repair. Shop. Driver, fresno. How many cell phone repair shops are in business? There's probably to be completely honest is probably a job waiting for him. If he can get here. Certainly that kind of technical acumen is marketable as somebody who who spends a little bit of time working on computers. I gotta tell ya. We're always looking for the next capable person. Cell phone repairs of good first step in that direction. Are you in favor of the president's plan to deploy troops to the border? Constitutionality aside. And look, I'm not a constitutional lawyer. So I I'm really hesitant to to get into a protracted fight about the letter of the law on this are you in favor of that. Is it a necessary thing because for every Christian in that crowd every thirty four year old cell phone repairman who just wants to feed his family. There's a real good chance that there's going to be somebody who doesn't want to abide our laws. They want to get into our country. They wanna make money, but they don't wanna do it within the system. Is it a one to one? I don't think. So is it a is it a part of the makeup of that crowd? You're a fool to think otherwise. Do we deploy the military? Do we deploy the national guard? Do we have a special emphasis on law enforcement, send county sheriff's out to to fortify border patrol rakes? What do we do with this? This is now the second time that a caravan consisting of thousands of people wants to push through into the United States. And while the left jumps up and down and yells and screams about the sometimes tough measures that the administration has taken to discourage this to show people that they can't just ignore are right as a sovereign nation to maintain a secure border. We've got a crisis coming plain and simple because while I believe that we have that sovereign right to maintain our border to pick and choose who we allow into our country. We also have an obligation as human beings not to let Christians four daughters..

"Here we go again another group of migrants coming from Honduras. Yeah. At this point, they are still down in Central America. But working their way, north Lee. This is a group of about a hundred fifty people who started off in San Pedro Soula Honduras, and that crowd has now swelled to an estimated three thousand people who are working their way north currently in Guatemala despite warnings from the United States, and from Guatemala, and from Mexico that they're they may face some hurdles along the way. And in fact, this morning, President Trump tweeted out that the United States has strongly informed the president of Honduras that if this caravan of people heading to the US is not stopped and brought back to Honduras. No, more money or aid will be given to Honduras, effective immediately. So the president issuing a threat over this caravan. Now. Well, I know that everybody is is shaking their head going. This is why we need a wall. This is why we need a wall. This is why we need and more than a physical wall a political wall with actions like the president just took. Now, let's back up for just a minute. Why are these people leaving Honduras? I've been to Rollot on off the coast of Honduras. It seems like a peaceful country. Yeah. Once again, some areas in what they call the triangle down there of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador, some very dangerous areas in the town of San Pedro Soula. Which is where this caravan started is thought to be one of the most dangerous towns in Central America riddled by not only political corruption. But also a drug influencing gang influences. Well, so these people are saying they say they're not trying to seek the American dream what they're looking for is to get away from Honduran nightmares. That's how they put it. And again, they're just trying to get away from violence and poverty. In their home country right now. Now is this the same country where we had waves coming through. What was it six eight months ago, well at generally the same area, those I believe the majority of them started in El Salvador and began to wake work their way northward. And that's when we ran into the situation at the border where some families were separated and started that whole controversy. Now, Mike Pence has has issued a warning. He he's issued a warning even before this started saying that that at the border their fate is uncertain. They could be turned away. They could have made immediately detained and deported or they could be held. So there are warnings out there. But these people apparently wanting to flee the conditions in their home countries are continuing north right now, they're in Guatemala, where the police did meet them at the border, and we're going to turn them back. But after a couple of hours they allowed them to go through. How are they traveling? Are they walking are they driving? Are they trying to hitch rides on trains? More many of them are on foot. This is says an organized effort to many of them are on foot. There are organizations along the way that are helping them out with food and supplies and their individual businesses. In the towns are going through who are helping out for instance, if there's a bakery in a small town, they might bring Brenton and other food out to these people as they head north. But in some cases, Lee, you have a one in one instance, a woman who was pregnant nother with carrying a young child. So there are families and young people involved in these marches as well. And I'm wondering if taking their chances walking three thousand miles or hitching trains for three thousand miles is somehow a better option than waiting to see the political situation in their homeland get better. Yeah. Well, they could make the argument that they've been. Waiting a long time for that. And that they fear for their lives at this point the other part of it is to last time. This happened Lee. The numbers had dwindled by the time. They got to the US border many of them electing to try to stay in Mexico where Mexico granted some temporary visas to those people who had made it that far. But you're right. This is quite a journey. This is a long journey. I would imagine that many of them will have dropped off by the time. They get to by the time. They get close to the United States. Another problem. I know they're coming across. And this is something it's not widely talked about, but I know of it because of my pension for the language, and the culture there is a certain amount of regional racism, the Honduran do not like the Mexicans the Mexicans. Do not like the Hondurans and both of them. Don't like the Guatemalans. Wow. Yeah. And that's that just adds to the whole situation here. Wow. That that's an interesting angle on. You know that creates even more friction it does. And I think it will. Thanks for the update Bill zipper on NewsRadio one thousand K T O if you.
