Reports show that the Central American caravan Migrants are heading to the American Border. They are waiting for additional 20,000 migrants to arrive in Tijuana after which they want to illegally and massively enter the USA.
Marco Gómez, a 26-year-old construction worker from Honduras is one of the people in the caravan. The Epoch Times reports that he, together with a bigger group of migrants, were seeking options to “send a message” to President Trump to “open the gates.”
“We’ll stay together and be strong, and then move on to the U.S. Peacefully, like people going from one country to another. Marching,” he stated.
He, and a few other migrants stated for the Epoch Times that their plan is to illegally enter the USA and not try to get an asylum.
“It’s a waste of time. It’s a process that takes months and years—it’s a long time,” Gómez said.
Frank Martinez is another immigrant whose idea is comparable to that of Marco.
“I personally, and I know many people will attempt to do the same thing—it’s to cross illegally. I will enter illegally,” Martinez said. “Because we want a better life, and I’m in a hurry.”
Despite the fact that Mexico offered the migrants asylum, they have rejected it and are headed to our borders.
“It’s not my intention, to stay here, in this country. My intention is the United States,” Martinez stated.

Pueblo Sin Fronteras, one of the head leaders of the caravan, posted a video in which one can hear a leader stating they will try to enter America on Sunday, November 25.
“The best day to go to the bridge—peacefully, not with violence—is on Sunday. And write banners with our points — and we don’t want the media to publish this before we do it,” the leader states.
President Trump stated that letting the immigrants in the USA is off the table. He said he would do anything to prevent that, even close the US border.
“If for any reason it becomes necessary, we will CLOSE our Southern Border. There is no way that the United States will, after decades of abuse, put up with this costly and dangerous situation anymore!” Trump tweeted Saturday.
