In all, more than 60,000 migrants were either detained at U.S. ports of entry or taken into custody along the border for the third straight month.

Still, the number is a marked decrease from earlier in the 2000s when border patrol agents regularly arrested more than 100,000 migrants a month, the newspaper noted. On two occasions they made more than 200,000 arrests a month.

USA Today pointed out that Democrats have accused President Donald Trump of using the caravans as a political tool in trying to get funding to build a wall on the southern border.

Meanwhile, another caravan, estimated at up to 15,000 people, is reportedly set to depart from Honduras in mid-January.

“They say they are even bigger and stronger than the last caravan,” said Irma Garrido of Reactiva Tijuana Foundation, which advocates for migrants.

    • Mexico has an Open borders policy like the democrats want. That’s why. Mexico is now being forced to take remedial actions because of the vast numbers flowing in to it’s country.

  1. In all, more than 60,000 migrants were either detained at U.S. ports of entry or taken into custody along the border for the third straight month.

    Still, the number is a marked decrease from earlier in the 2000s when border patrol agents regularly arrested more than 100,000 migrants a month, the newspaper noted. On two occasions they made more than 200,000 arrests a month.

  2. Yes, President Trump is using these invading caravans as reason to build the wall NOW. If all these invading morons entered America LEGALLY, there would be no need for a wall. Since they have tried to crash the border regularly over the last 20 or more years, a Barrier is Necessary to stop them.

  3. “It’s a Manufactured Crisis” eh? That’s an atrocious democrat mendacity on the part of fake news, an extension of the Democrat (DemonRat) party.

  4. Judge Roberts, Following Gov. Jerry Brown’s Policies, treat the Illegals like the Royal Family. The 9th Court of Appeals is dictating to Trump, taking his executive powers away and forcing theirs on our Nation. Trumps catch and release into Mexico was struck down, Judge Robert’s said turn them loose in the USA, knowing for a fact they will never come to their hearing for asylum. Judge Robert;s wants them to come to Jerry’s Sanctuary State. For, Jerry Brown has set up a Instant Retirement Plan for these Illegals, Come to California and retire off the taxpayers back’s, Jerry gives them Instant Welfare, Instant Food Stamps, Instant Medicaid with Dental(best free Health Care in the world),and free housing, also their people to help the illegal fill out Gov. Grants to start a Business which never has to be paid back that’s right folks free money, and they get free College, Illegals never worry about commiting a crime for they will be protected from the Law. Just why has most of the Caravan went to Tijuana, next to San Diego, CA.
    I am not lying this is exactly what the Democrats want, which is to buy a new voting base to keep them in power for the next 40 years. This was Obama’s Dream to create a one Party Dictatorship. Already, Democrats have been screaming how they want to rewrite our Constitution, and allow every Perversion under the sun for a vote.
    Folks, I contributed the the Wall Fund, seems that every member of the Democrat Party have joined George Soros’s “Open Borders Society” and we have seen exactly how George brought that to the European Union and now Europe is in total Chaos. This is exactly what George wants for the US for he has Bought the Democrat Party with his election funding, and funding every anti-America Rioters. So, Liberals decide what do you want? Is that to allow Illegals to retire off your backs, Oh you say they work so hard?? Baloney! They work for CASH, just so they can keep their free Welfare money. Remember Welfare is meant for out Poor Citizens, Now in CA. Illegals now own 60% of HUD houses which are meant for our Poor Citizens along with Food Stamps. Democrats are giving our Country away, for they want to keep the Million’s they have made from Corruption. Look Gov, Jerry Brown has a 5 million Dollar 300 Acre Estate with walls built around his r house and fencing around his 300 acres, look at Maxine Waters house 4.3 Million estate with the same walls around her house, Nancy Pelosi, who got Rich steering Government Contracts to her Husband Company “Corrupt??” and she also has walls built around her house. Yet, all of them demand Open Borders, allowing drugs to pore into our Country then Create a Opioid Crisis, telling the World Doctors are creating this, and take Medicine away from older people. Come on People, Chuck Schumer, Obama, Hillary all made famous speeches about building walls along the Border and the Liberals loved it!! Ate it up the Media followed suit! Now Trump ask for the same thing and the two Liberals cry foul, even Chuckie screams no borders when the liar ask for them in the past. This is just anti-Trump, “THE HELL WITH WHAT 80% OF AMERICA WANTS! This is the new Democrat Party, they Hate “WE THE PEOPLE” and love the Illegals, Schumer will step on the Citizen to give Welfare to the Illegals. The Democrat “BETO” has went to Central America to bring more Illegals to our Country traveling with them holding their hands along the way. That’s right think, why did the Democrats want Illegals to vote, was it Because Obama said it was OK in the 2016 election for Hillary.

  5. Mexico should consider, to stop letting them come inti their country. Because they are the one’s that are the one’s that are going to have to pay the price. DEARLY. Wake up, Mexico leaders. Whatever part of this is you problem, if so.
