A Univision Spanish TV reporter spent weeks embedded within the migrant caravan heading to the US/Mexico border has reported that a group of people from Bangladesh joined the caravan attempting to cross into Mexico.
Francisco Santa Anna reported that the Bangladeshis were detained in an immigration facility, but nothing further has been reported as to their current status or whereabouts.
“The borders in Central American are not as strong as the U.S., which makes it possible for people from Panama and Ecuador to cross easily,” Santa Anna said on Univision. “They cross from Costa Rica, then later go through Guatemala and eventually make it into our country.”
“Yesterday when we were traveling through Guatemala, we noticed people from El Salvador and even people from Bangladesh,” he continued. “Can you imagine what they had to do to get here? They infiltrated themselves in this caravan and tried to cross with the crowd. That would have benefited them greatly.”
Bangladesh is known to have one of the largest populations of Muslims in the world, more than Iran, Afghanistan, and Saudi Arabia combined.
In reaction to the growing Central American migrant caravan hoping to enter the United States, President Donald Trump launched a Twitter attack directed at both the migrants and the Democrats.
According to the Associated Press, the caravan’s size has grown to nearly 5,000 migrants and it intends to reach the US/Mexico border despite efforts by Mexican officials to stop it.
Here is what the President of the United States had to say:
“Full efforts are being made to stop the onslaught of illegal aliens from crossing our Souther Border. People have to apply for asylum in Mexico first, and if they fail to do that, the U.S. will turn them away. The courts are asking the U.S. to do things that are not doable!”
“The Caravans are a disgrace to the Democrat Party. Change the immigration laws NOW!”
“Sadly, it looks like Mexico’s Police and Military are unable to stop the Caravan heading to the Southern Border of the United States. Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in. I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that this is a National Emergy. Must change laws!”
“Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws! Remember the Midterms! So unfair to those who come in legally.”
“Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them.”
