Another massive migrant caravan heading towards our southern border which only proves why we need tighter border control and now.
Here is more from Fox News:
Hundreds of Honduran migrants reportedly boarded buses in the city of San Pedro Sula before dawn Wednesday and a set out in a caravan hoping to travel the more than 2,450 miles to the United States.
Some of those gathered at the bus station said they are seeking better opportunities away from Honduras because they cannot support their families with what they can earn in their home country.

Nohemy Reyes, who waited at the bus station with one of her five children sleeping on the floor beside her, said her country’s economic troubles are driving her north.
“The economic situation is very difficult,” she said. But if she finds the U.S. border closed, she said, she will return to Honduras.
Officials in San Pedro Sula told reporters that nearly 1,000 people gathered at the bus terminal after news of a new migrant caravan spread. Some there were unable to board buses and began walking through the rain – some pushing strollers or carrying sleeping children in their arms.
This caravan follows the several thousands of migrants who made the trek north and now remain stranded on the Mexico-U.S. border. …

Democrats and the liberal media alike continue to push the narrative that there is no crisis at our Southern border.
They are dead wrong.
Even Obama-era Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan admitted that we are “experiencing a crisis at the southern border at a magnitude never seen in modern times.”
“This is not a manufactured crisis created by those of us who live and work in the border area,” Morgan said. “Border Patrol continues to apprehend record numbers of people who purposely violate U.S. immigration laws, we are taken advantage of by gaps in our legal frameworks and that undermine the rule of laws.” …
And it’s growing.
