It’s an invasion, there are no more honest words available to describe it…
Migrant caravan within a day of unfenced border area in Texas
According to reporting by Breitbart and Fox News, citing Mexican officials in the border state of Coahuila, about 1,700 migrants from Honduras have arrived in the state, which lies across the Rio Grande from a thinly populated area of southwest Texas. As of Monday, the migrants are being moved on buses to the U.S. border.
Breitbart’s summary indicates the migrants intend to enter the U.S. and request asylum:
The migrants are traveling with the intent to request asylum on U.S. soil, thus making any detention by border authorities irrelevant. The group is expected in Eagle Pass and Laredo, Texas, however, since the region lacks any fencing or physical barriers, some could successfully storm the border with little effort.
As the Breitbart reporters point out, this stretch of the border is unlike the border along Tijuana, where there is an extensive barrier. Migrants who are being organized to “storm” the border between Laredo and Eagle Pass will not be channeled by a barrier system to make their attempts in local areas the Border Patrol can readily focus assets on.
