Massive Migration From Guatemala, Honduras

But Dems are more concerned with making the Mueller report say the opposite of what it found.

Just how bad is the immigration crisis at the U.S. southern border? Well, here’s an instance where percentages can help people gain a greater overall perspective of the immensity of the problem. According to active Homeland Security Department Secretary Kevin McAleenan, since September of last year over 1% of the entire populations of both Guatemala and Honduras have crossed into the U.S. McAleenan stated, “The current migration flows, especially of vulnerable families and children, from Central America through Mexico, to remote areas all along the U.S. border, represent both a security and humanitarian crisis. The situation is not sustainable.”

As we recently noted, you know it’s gotten bad when even The New York Times admits there’s a crisis.

McAleenan noted, “In March, we had over 103,000 irregular arrivals of undocumented migrants — 90% crossing the U.S. border unlawfully and unsafely in the hands of human smugglers. We will see similar numbers in April.” And the reality is the situation is not getting better. McAleenan further explained, “These trends are deepening and accelerating. According to a recent USAID funded study conducted by Vanderbilt University’s Latin American Public Opinion Project in Guatemala earlier this year, 1 in 4 Guatemalans have an intention to migrate from Guatemala, with 85% of them expressing the United States as their preferred destination.”

“That’s over four million Guatemalans who intend to migrate to the United States,” McAleenan observed. “Imagine if almost the entire population of the Western United States left the country. What kind of impact would that have on the economy, culture, and identity? What does that mean for future generations?”

Meanwhile, Democrats are engrossed in a fight with the White House over the conclusions of Robert Mueller’s special investigation. These Democrats can’t see past their own anti-Trump hatred to recognize that the country is in the midst of a massive crisis that needs all hands on deck.
