Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” plan would be an improvement. But is it enough?
Central Americans who arrive at U.S. border crossings seeking asylum in the United States will have to wait in Mexico while their claims are processed under sweeping new measures the Trump administration is preparing to implement, according to internal planning documents and three Department of Homeland Security officials familiar with the initiative.
According to DHS memos obtained by The Washington Post on Wednesday, Central American asylum seekers who cannot establish a “reasonable fear” of persecution in Mexico will not be allowed to enter the United States and would be turned around at the border.
Among the thousands of Central American migrants traveling by caravan across Mexico, many hope to apply for asylum due to threats of gang violence or other persecution in their home countries.
Could the caravaneer muds currently en route to the United States and Canada be some of the worst their country has to offer?
Keep in mind… their countries don’t really have anything good to offer in the human resources department.
SHOCKING images offer a glimpse inside the terrifying Honduran gangs feared to be infiltrating migrant caravans – and the misery they cause.
The following are some examples of whole-wheat organic Hondurans that are likely on their way to your neighborhood, and the products they manufacture.
Those are just Honduras’ exports. You will also have some from El Salvador too.
Pretty vibrant combination, don’t you think?
To make matters worse, Honduras’ government doesn’t even know how to differentiate gang members from gang collaborations because everyone there is involved with gangs in one way or another. The number of “official” gang members is grossly underestimated.
Estimates for the number of gang members in Honduras range widely, mostly because authorities have a poor understanding of the differences between gang collaborators versus full-fledged members. Without understanding this difference, the Honduran government may never develop an effective policy for undermining gang influence.
Part of the problem is that Honduran law does not have a legal definition of what constitutes a “gang member” — not even in the country’s tough anti-gang legislation, which was reformed last year in order to increase penalties against gangs.
These collaborators — often including youthful recruits, young children, women, and sometimes the elderly — perform many key tasks for the gangs, but, as noted, the gangs themselves do not see them as “gang members.”
Within the Barrio 18 and the MS13, youths between the ages of 6 and 14 are often recruited to work as “banderas” — lookouts responsible for alerting gangs of any unusual activity in the neighborhood, such as a rival gang’s presence. Sometimes banderas will be given other tasks, such as transporting drugs and weapons, collecting extortion payments, and shadowing the police or crime scenes. While important tasks, these banderas are not part of the gangs.
The girlfriends of gang members will also frequently carry out these types of activities. Family members may also carry messages for the gangs, or stash weapons and drugs on their behalf.
In Honduras, children are pretty vicious creatures.
In Honduran schools, gangs are in control.
It can’t exactly be said that street gangs are recruiting in Honduran schools because gangs in Honduras don’t need to recruit. In a country of limited opportunities, more schoolchildren want to join the violent Mara Salvatrucha, 18th Street and other newly formed gangs than the illegal bands can absorb.
What can be said is that, just as they control most of the neighborhoods of Tegucigalpa, street gangs rule over most public schools in the capital. Gangsters are students and students are gangsters, as are some of their parents.
“The schools are a base of organization for the gangs, and the point through which all children in the neighborhood pass,” said Lt. Col. Santos Nolasco, spokesman for the joint military and police force in charge of security in the country of 8.2 million people.
“The fear is indescribable … because these children are capable of anything,” Ruiz said. “It is a climate of shocking desperation.”
They’re capable of anything. Don’t forget that.
Don’t fall for the “caravans are composed of the good people fleeing the bad people” argument. They carry The Void in their DNA. They’re all tainted. There’s nothing they can offer you other than despair, horrible deaths, and destruction.
“What do we gain by doing this thing? How does my people benefit from this?”
Never stop asking those questions.
