Got Him! Ex-Lawmaker Who Organized HUGE Migrant Caravan In Custody!
A former lawmaker who organized 2000 some odd migrant caravan march towards the US has been detained.
A former Honduran lawmaker traveling with a caravan of migrants heading toward the U.S.-Mexico border was detained by authorities in Guatemala on Tuesday as President Trump threatened to arrest anyone entering the country illegally.
Ex-legislator Bartolo Fuentes, who is said to have organized the march, was detained by Guatemalan authorities after failing to register with migration officials upon entering the country. Wilmer Simon Gomez and Michael Fajardo were among two others detained from the migrant group.
An official with the country’s migration agency said that Fuentes was to be taken to a migrant shelter and then deported, according to Fox News.
Trump was forced to double down on his threats to cut off aid to Honduras because of the massive caravan:
“We have today informed the countries of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador that if they allow their citizens, or others, to journey through their borders and up to the United States, with the intention of entering our country illegally, all payments made to them will STOP (END)!” – Trump tweeted Tuesday.
The President then added, “Anybody entering the United States illegally will be arrested and detained, prior to being sent back to their country!”
So far the Honduras government has labeled the caravan “irregular mobilization” saying that the group is aiming to ‘upset peace in Honduras and the United States.”. However, what the Honduras government has done to prevent these “irregular mobilizations” is not known at this time.
Honduras’s foreign ministry, in a statement reported by local news, said the caravan was being politically manipulated in order to make the country look bad, just days after leaders were in Washington promising better cooperation with the Trump administration, according to the Washington Times.
But no matter what happens with this caravan, security experts say the U.S. is already being flooded with other caravans with hundreds of people on a near-daily basis, and that shows no signs of stopping.
