    Default Record numbers arrested at southern border in December



    TIME FOR NEW SIGNS - THEY'LL NEED TO BE IN SPANISH


    According to Department of Homeland Security data released Wednesday, 60,782 migrants from Central America were apprehended by Border Patrol agents stationed at the U.S.-Mexico border or turned away by Customs and Border Protection officers at official crossing points. Illegal immigration apprehensions at the southern border have skyrocketed.

    One of the reasons for the increase is that organized caravans of people from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras have allowed illegals to migrate north without having to pay the average $8,000 fee for smugglers to get them through.

    Historically, groups of five to 10 people would be escorted over the border by a smuggler.

    The dramatic increase in group size and their arrival in rural parts of Arizona and New Mexico has presented a major challenge for Border Patrol, which is responsible for arresting people who have illegally entered.

    Default Mexico prepares for arrival of next invasion caravan



    WHO'S INVITING INVADERS TO SWARM OVER OUR BORDERS?


    Mexican authorities will meet with Central American officials to prepare for the arrival of a planned new caravan of migrants headed to the United States next week.

    An appeal is circulating on social media for invaders to assemble in the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula next Tuesday to start the illegal trek north to the United States.

    Other social media posts invite invaders to leave from nearby Santa Barbara on Jan. 20.

    The head of Mexico’s immigration office, Tonatiuh Guillen, left on Wednesday on a trip to El Salvador and Honduras to meet with his counterparts and other authorities, said Interior Ministry spokesman Hector Gandini.

    Mexico hopes to discourage another mass exodus from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, and wants Central Americans who decide to migrate north to do so in an orderly way and through legal ports of entry.

    “The doors to Mexico are open to anyone who wants to enter in an orderly fashion,” Gandini told Reuters. “But whoever wants to come in illegally will be deported.”

    Previous Central American invasion caravans became a flashpoint in the debate over U.S. immigration policy.

    There are 12 legal ports of entry for Central Americans on Mexico’s southern border, but Mexican authorities have identified an additional 370 illegal points of entry on that frontier, Interior Minister Olga Sanchez said this week.

    Mexico borders in the south with Guatemala and Belize.

    The illegal entry points will be “monitored and controlled to avoid undocumented access of people to our territory,” Sanchez said.

    Guatemala’s deputy foreign minister, Pablo Cesar Garcia, met with Mexican authorities on Tuesday to discuss the caravan and to “provide all the necessary support to the migrants,” said Guatemalan Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marta Larra.
