Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Mexico braces for new caravan of Central American migrants
"We have information that a new caravan is forming in Honduras, that they're calling `the mother of all caravans,' and they are thinking it could have more than 20,000 people," [MX Interior Secretary Olga] Sanchez Cordero said Wednesday. But a WhatsApp [?!] group calling for people to gather Saturday in El Salvador to set off for Guatemala only has about 206 members.

Activist Irineo Mujica, who has accompanied several caravans in Mexico, said reports about "the mother of all caravans" were false, claiming "this is information that (U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen) Nielsen is using to create fear."

Now, that is an intriguing theory: MX and US gov COLLUDING to deny human "rights" to war (conflict, "intercommunal conflict") refugees in both! territories.
"We are going to do everything we can to help. We don't in any way want a confrontation with the U.S. government," he said. "It is legitimate that they are displeased and they voice these concerns."

Sanchez Cordero has pledged to form a police line of "containment" around Mexico's narrow Tehuantepec Isthmus to stop migrants from continuing north to the U.S. border. The containment belt would consist of federal police and immigration agents, but such highway blockades and checkpoints have not stopped large and determined groups of migrants in the past.

Soooo *.mx "pays for the wall" like some NATO ahh peripheral states pay for "containment."

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
