After being a top news story for months, there is little talk about the Central American migrant caravan.
It was nothing but a ploy by the Democrats to try to gain sympathy going into the midterm elections.
But now the caravan is done for after waving the white flag to Trump.
Migrant caravans have been all over the news for the past year.
In recent weeks, a massive caravan made its way to the U.S. border.
Filled with documented criminals and gang members, and even terrorists, they made multiple attempts to force their way into the U.S.
Terrifying scenes of waves of illegal immigrants throwing rocks, and climbing the wall were open for the world to see.
And with that, Democrats began to realize they weren’t going to get the sympathy they expected.
They were hoping for waves of women and children to make their way to the border.
From there, they could try to muster up enough sympathy across the country to force Trump to allow them into the country.
But after trying everything, including using pictures of women being tear gassed, they are finally realizing they won’t be able to convince President Trump.
And with that, just as quickly as they arrived, those at the border are either on their way home or finding some way to stay in Mexico.
This is a clear win for President Trump and proves just how serious he is about securing the border.
Trump is making that so clear that future caravans are already giving up on trying to enter the U.S.
In recent days, news of a new caravan forming in Central America began spreading.
But, unlike every single past caravan, this one isn’t headed to the U.S.
Instead, the caravan, scheduled to leave Honduras on January 15th, is heading to Chiapas, Mexico to request work.
“We assume that this caravan … will pick up more people in El Salvador and Guatemala. But their aim is to arrive in Chiapas and request work there,” Irma Garrido of migrant advocate group Reactiva Tijuana Foundation said according to a story by Mexico News Daily Monday.
This caravan is expected to have upwards of 15,000 people, which is similar to the most recent caravan that attempted to enter the U.S. from Tijuana.
Chiapas is much closer to Central America, and nearly 2,400 miles from the Tijuana border crossing.
So this means that this caravan is likely to be full of actual people seeking asylum.
If one is seeking asylum, they generally enter the closest safe country to theirs.
So in the case of Central American migrants, Mexico is the closest country to them that is safe, at least comparably to their home countries.
Only time will tell if this caravan chooses to simply stay in Mexico, or if they try to push further north.
There is no indication that will occur, as they know that President Trump is not going to appease them in their demands.
Do you think Trump has finally defeated the migrant caravans?
