Is a caravan made up of Central Americans immigrants headed to the U.S.?
President Trump's tweet (see below) about the caravan of more than 1,000 people headed northbound through Mexico has attracted a lot of attention to an event that's occured yearly around the Easter holiday.
Mexico has the absolute power not to let these large “Caravans” of people enter their country. They must stop them at their Northern Border, which they can do because their border laws work, not allow them to pass through into our country, which has no effective border laws.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2, 2018
Carl DeMaio Monday, spoke with Irineo Mujica, an organizer with "Pueblos Sin Fronteras" to find out the group's intent and whether participants plan to make their way to the U.S. to request asylum.
Mujica says the organization is working to find sensible solutions to the immigration system in both countries.
In past years, the group has traveled through Mexico, gathering asking for changes in the immigration policies with some participants seeking asylum from Mexico or the U.S. This is one of the largest caravans according to The New York Times.
Currently the caravan is Oaxaca, Mexico an estimated two days from Tijuana according to Mujica.
When pressed for an answer on whether they plan to come to the U.S./Mexico border, Mujica grew frustrated and wanted to end the interview.
