Second caravan of illegals heading for US border
According to reports, there is now a second migrant caravan heading for the US of around 1000 people. They crossed from Honduras into Guatemala on Sunday night. The first wave comprises between 10 000 and 14 000 migrants, and includes notorious MS-13 gang members.

The award winning US reporter Sarah Carter, says MS-13 gang members form part of the first migrant caravan heading towards the United States.
“Guatemalan intelligence discovered people from India, Bangladesh, Africa had also joined in with the caravan – I bumped into a number of young MS 13 gang members,” tweeted Carter, a Fox News contributor.

Carter’s report backs up President Trump’s claim that there are “bad people” and criminals who are part of the caravan. He had also singled out the Mexican gang.
“You’re going to find MS-13, you’re going to find Middle Eastern, you’re going to find everything,” Trump had warned.
While fielding questions from the press on Friday at Luke Air Force Base in Phoenix, Arizona, Trump snapped at a New York Times reporter by calling her a “baby” when she challenged his claims that migrants were often “hardened criminals”.
The reporter asked Trump: “What evidence do you have that these are hardened criminals that are coming to the United States?”
He responded: “Oh please. Please, don’t be a baby, OK. Take a look, just take a look, look at what’s happening, look at the Mexican soldiers that are laying on the ground.”
In May this year, the left and the mainstream media lambasted Trump for calling MS-13 gang members “animals”.
At least 200 murders by MS-13 gang members have been committed in the United States since 2012. The group is notorious for its gruesome executions, including rape and dismemberment of women and children.
Fox News reported on Monday that the migrant caravan from Guatemala and Honduras is “about 80 percent” men “under the age of 35” while mainstream reports spoke mainly of “women and children”.
“We’ve been told that about 1000 people have applied for asylum here in Mexico,” a Fox News reporter said, “but about 80 percent of the people here are men under the age of 35”.
“They’re going to have to try to cross [into the US] illegally, which of course is why the president says he might call up the military,” the reporter added.
Conservative author and columnist Pat Buchanan meanwhile noted that the Central American nationals heading for the US illegally is President Trump’s chance to demonstrate that he can stop a “third world invasion of the West”.
During an interview on the Laura Ingraham Show, Buchanan said the migrant caravan now presents an opportunity for Trump ahead of the 2018 midterm elections to show that he has the willpower to stop mass immigration. “It’s the major issue in Western Civilization right now,” Buchanan said.
“And it enables Donald Trump to demonstrate he’s a leader on this issue, this is his issue. And he can take action to secure the borders and prevent what is really a third world invasion of the West.”
The migrant caravan has been described by the establishment media as a group of “asylum-seekers” but actually a number of migrants interviewed by Fox have openly admitted that they were looking for jobs, not asylum.
Migrants with the caravan profiled by the New York Times and the Associated Press have all stated their main goal as job searching — which happens not to be an eligible claim for asylum.
The US currently admits more than 1,5 million legal and illegal immigrants every year, with more than 70 percent coming to the country through the process known as “chain migration”, bringing an unlimited number of foreign relatives into the country.
