A group of more than 1,000 mostly Honduran illegal aliens were being assisted by Mexico as they headed to the U.S. border to demand asylum on Easter Sunday, reports said.
The Center for Immigration Studies reported that Mexican authorities allowed the illegals to drive north “with relative ease.”
Researcher Kausha Luna reported that the group pro-immigrant group Pueblo Sin Fronteras boasted about the convoy speeding into Mexico.
U.S. President Donald Trump on April 1 tweeted a warning that the flow of illicit drugs and immigrants from Mexico “must stop.”
“Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!”
Trump also tweeted: “Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!”
“On Monday Pueblo Sin Fronteras posted a video with the caption, ‘The Refugee Caravan knocking down borders yesterday in Huehuetan! Immigration agents abandoned the post when they saw us coming. The people celebrate this first small victory!”
Locals have also provided supplies along the way, the reports said.
The illegals posted celebration videos on Facebook and chanted “We are migrants. We are not criminals. We are workers.”
The group also had in place security measures if something were to go wrong, according to Luna.
“Additionally, the group practiced security protocols, including formations which called for the men of the group to form a wall around the women and children. Moreover, the Central Americans made their way to Mexico’s Commission for Refugee Assistance and made calls for better compliance with international and national laws, faster processing of asylum applications, and an increase in acceptance rates,” Luna wrote.
