The migrant caravan making its way north from Honduras has been the subject of much media attention, due to the United States being their reported destination.
President Donald Trump has declared that he will do whatever he can to keep the thousands of migrants from breaching the United States southern border.
Democrats, on the other hand, have used the migration as a campaign strategy, with even some politicians saying that they think closed borders are unethical.
Representative Nancy Pelosi has said time and again that it’s immoral to keep our borders firm, saying that “unchecked immigration will strengthen their hold on power,” according to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
“An entire political party is inviting it,” Carlson said, pointing out when Pelosi told an audience it would be “immoral” to build a wall, it is because she believes “unchecked immigration” will help their political future.
However, Mexico does have some borders on its southern border, as do many countries, and the migrants moving up from the south have found those borders to be unacceptable to them.
The New York Post reported that “Thousands of migrants who’ve trekked from Honduras in hopes of making it to the United States broke down a metal gate at the Mexico-Guatemala border Friday afternoon.
“The caravan of migrants rushed toward a border bridge in Mexico just after noon local time — as hundreds of federal police and Guatemalan cops in riot gear stood guard.
The migrants, who have been portrayed by the left as freedom loving, would be Americans, are reported to have among them scores of men, women, and children who carry the Honduran flags, and changed, “One way or another, we will pass” and “We are not smugglers, we are immigrants.”
The crowd retreated briefly when confronted by the metal gate in the south of Mexico, but soon found that to be a penetrable barrier as young men tore the gate down with brute force.
Still, others climbed over it and made their way atop the US-donated military jeeps, according to the Post.
After breaching the gate, the group of immigrants rushed the border bridge, which forced police to unleash pepper spray. That retaliation caused the illegal immigrants to begin throwing rocks.
This on-slot of immigrants has caused the president to declare that he will secure the southern border, even if it takes a deployment of soldiers to keep out the unwanted migrants.
