How the World Sees the Caravan

 

Around 80% of the asylum seekers’ caravan heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border come, according to BuzzFeed, from Honduras. They are fleeing intolerable conditions in their country following the U.S.-supported coup against President Manuel Zelaya that happened nine years ago. HuffPost reports that  “thousands of indigenous activists, peasant leaders, trade unionists, journalists, environmentalists, judges, opposition political candidates, human rights activists, and others murdered since a military coup ousted the democratically elected president Manuel Zelaya in 2009.” They are fleeing a hell-hole.

In 2012 there were 20 homicides a day in Honduras, which has a population of nine million. Honduras has one of the highest murder rates in the world, as well as the highest rate of sexual violence. The violence mainly results from urban gangs’ drug trafficking and competition for global markets. MS-13 and the 18th Street Gang (both founded in Los Angeles) are entrenched in Tegucigalpa (the capital), and the industrial city of San Pedro Sula.  Many asylum seekers have been threatened by such gangs and are fleeing from them with the same sense of terror as those trying to escape government death-squads elsewhere in Central America.

One might argue that the U.S. has, through its support for the coup nine years ago, patronage of the current regime, and its vast market for cannabis, heroin and cocaine, helped produce this desperate exodus of Central Americans to the border. People with a hard choice: stay home, let the kids get recruited into a gang, killing or get killed while at least drawing steady pay. Or flee north, facing dangerous challenges, and pray for North American compassion at the end of the road. Anything for safety, food and shelter.

The slow-moving caravan of several thousand people is a latter-day Children’s Crusade. About half of it consists of boys and girls, accompanied or non-accompanied by parents. Donald Trump–citing law enforcement officials–wants you to believe the oncoming horde (which he calls the “lawless caravan”) is ridden with MS-13 gangsters and criminals who have been convicted of crimes ranging from armed robbery to sexual assault. He says “lots of people are saying” George Soros is funding the caravan–it could, that is to say, be linked to what fascists consider “the radical left.”

On Oct. 22 the U.S. commander-in-chief, widely understood in the world to be a bullying buffoon, declared, “Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in.” Thus he announced in advance, to all prospective asylum applicants: “Nobody’s coming in.” And he says he will deploy “anywhere from 10,000 to 15,000” U.S. troops to defend the border against this “invasion.”

No show of Merkel-like compassion. No echo of the Statue of Liberty’s inscription: “Give me your tired and your poor…” Just rage against the brown, the desperately poor, vilifying them to produce warm fuzzy feelings in your racist supporters…

Karen Tumulty on CNN calls Trump our “stuntsman in chief” for threatening to deploy not just National Guard and border control but regular troops.  (One wonders what the troops will think about their deployment on such an unusual mission.) Should anyone so much as throw rocks at a U.S. soldier, Trump has declared that the soldier will respond in self-defense, meaning by gunfire since ” a rock is not much different than a gun.”

Think: rock-thrower. What images come up? David and Goliath. Palestinian boys with their sling-shots, responding to Israeli occupation. What happens to the boys? Too often, they get shot dead. Trump’s thinking sounds very Israeli: when the weak use the weapons of the weak, you shoot them dead. And positively boast about the deployment of “disproportionate force.” Because you want the world to FEAR you, always, big-time.

Plainly Trump hopes to rally his base over this issue before tomorrow’s balloting. He is surely familiar with Hermann Goering’s dictum: “All you have to do is tell [the people] they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.” Trump-backed TV ads depict the mass asylum bid as an “invasion” and Democrats who support as wanting the country flooded with rapists, murderers and drug traffickers.

Will the president’s manifest racism, ignorance, cruelty, and fear-mongering win his party victories tomorrow, or cost them? Polls show his racist rants are most popular in states with least immigration.  These fear tactics could produce a backlash; one hopes so. Or they could work. The world that rarely cares about U.S. midterm elections is paying keen attention to this one. Most rational people are hoping for the Democrats to take the House and stymie the Trump agenda, including plans for war with Iran.

Leftwing opiners do not speak for "the world", nor do they even speak for all or most Americans.  This kind of crap peddling represents confirmation bias that guarantees no responsible or reasonable immigration policies.  Personally I'm sick to death of the extremists on both sides. 


Either we are a sovereign nation or we aren't.  If the former, then we have a right to decide who we let into our nation based on what is best for our nation.  And what is best for our nation is take in immigrants in a measure that will ADD to our stability more than DETRACT from it.  We can absorb SOME number of assylum seekers along with LEGAL immigrants we WANT to come here, but we should accept ZERO who refuse to follow the process or are here for criminal or subversive intent.  As for illegal immigrants already here, we encouraged it, so we should figure out how to keep those who ADD to our stabilty while at the same time not advantaging them over those who came in legally or our own citizenry. 


As for those seeking assylum because of our meddling in foreign countries, we have to be grown ups here as well.  Sometimes it is necessary to protect our interests, sometimes it is necessary as a human rights stand, but at no time can we absorb the full burden of those impacted.  We are neither the world's police, nor are we the world's welfare agency as an absolute and we carry more than "our fair share" of both.  And in so far as foreign nations goes, here is the list who should be ignored in regard to criticism:


-Those who live in countries suffering the impact of what the author opines

-Those who do nothing to help their regional need when they are better suited to help

-Those who have harsher policies/consequences regarding illegal immigration than we do


The above list is almost every other country in the world.

I will tell you this. It is legal for citizens to own sniper rifles. Self protection don'cha know? So, we have about 100 neo nazi minutemen on the border with about 100 more heading there. I say give each of them a sniper rifle and let them start taking shots at those kids when they get closer that 2 miles. Problem solved....

We don’t tinker well with other governments. Whoever we support turns out to be a con man worse than the one before. We’re responsible for securing our borders which led to northern Mexico being stuck with gangs, cartels of drug traffickers. Is that our problem? Legalize drugs and it rips the black market to shreds. Let’s just deal with the people who use them, get the others out of jail, put our tax dollars to better use. Leave Honduras, and all other drug producing countries to sort out their economic declines. Merciful heavens our stupid laws have done them no favor.

IMO, Easy, the left is doing no better in regard to truth telling.  Trump, in no small part, got elected as a push back on both the hyperbolic dishonest rhetoric directed at anyone who wants the ILLEGAL flow to stop AND by folks who are actually impacted directly.  I could not care less that my neighbors are brown...I do care that both the H1V1 workers and the manual laborers are being exploited and that there is one of the largest sex slave rings in my state capital, and a drug problem in my state, all aided by illegal trafficing.

I don't think most rational folks disagree with your formulation above, QZ. And if that were what Trump were saying, then I think there'd be little difficulty.


But you and I both know that's not what he's saying. He is jimmying up fear and hatred, was doing so to stoke the fears of the aging population who support him, and we ALL know by now that older people are more scared. He is not painting this as a situation where we recognize the issues that these people face, but have to watch out for our own interests, he is calling it an invasion, and by that specifically, even if not openly admitting it, is intended to cast the caravan in a military light.


And can you think of anyone of the rightwing biddy coterie on this site that would prefer your formulation of the issue to Trump's?


I can't.

I'm not defending or excusing Trump's hyperbolic fear mongering, but at the same time I recognize he didn't just spring out of Zeus' head.    That he gins up his base makes him no different than the left who gins up theirs.  Meanwhile, MOST Americans want sensible enforced laws AND to not be called a racist or xenophobe or homophobe or misogynist or fascist for what the Dems used to support.

The "caravan" does not likely have a lot of members who qualify for asylum under the following criteria:


Asylum has three basic requirements. First, an asylum applicant must establish that he or she fears persecution in their home country.[4] Second, the applicant must prove that he or she would be persecuted on account of one of five protected grounds: race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or particular social group. Third, an applicant must establish that the government is either involved in the persecution, or unable to control the conduct of private actors.


The video clips I have seen seem to show several things that argue against asylum as a legitimate goal. First, the "caravan" consists of what appears to be mostly young males. They are proudly carrying the national flags of the supposedly oppressive regimes they are fleeing. They didn't settle in the first nation proviing safe haven (Mexico). A question also: How many of these thousands of asylum seekers made their way to a US consulate in either Honduras or Guatemala to apply for asylum? It seems like they could have saved themselves a long and dangerous (especially to the few women and children I have seen) hike.


Poverty and widespread criminal voilence are not sufficient grounds to be granted asylum. The young (military age) males who mostly look fit perhaps could be spending their energies on making their wretched home countries safer and more prosperous. Coming to the US will not solve anyone's problems except for the few that finally make their way across our border and begin reaping the benefits of life in the US. What do we Americans get in return?

Live it or live with it.

As I understand it, you cannot apply for asylum at a consulate, but at a port of entry? I would agree that most of the caravan will not actually be granted asylum. I read that this happens every year. By the time they get here the numbers will likely be a few hundred, a few of them will be granted asylum and the majority turned away.

You should probably add that of the few hundred that may reach our borders, many could be Mexican serial killers, Islamic fanatic terrorists, or otherwise carrying leprosy or typhus.

Hey Anjy!


Actually you are correct. You can apply for Refugee status from another country. You must apply for Asylum from within the US or at a border crossing (not by wading across the Rio Grande or hopping a fence!). The criteria I mentioned above would still apply though and I seriously doubt many, if any, of the people in the "caravan" qualify.

The caravan is being treated well in Mexico City, but determined to reach the United States.    Why?  


The 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act states that any foreigner who arrives in the USA, "whether or not at a designated port of arrival," may apply for asylum. A United Nations treaty signed in 1951 by the United States says "refugees should not be penalized for their illegal entry" because extreme situations sometimes "require refugees to breach immigration rules."

The administration's rule change was adopted under a provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act that allowed the Department of Homeland Security to limit or restrict asylum claims, which already included restrictions against immigrants who were convicted of serious crimes or were designated dangerous to U.S. security.

Several groups have already filed lawsuits in California and the District of Columbia challenging the administration’s actions to limit asylum. The latest asylum announcement will add to the litigation, which could be decided by a Supreme Court that includes two Trump appointees.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2018/11/09/donald-trump-denies-asylum-central-americans-migrant-caravan-honduras-border-immigration/1934635002/



MEXICO CITY – Central American migrants traveling in a caravan plan to leave Mexico City early Friday to continue their long journey northward to the U.S.-Mexico border even as the Trump administration moves forward with its plan to dramatically cut back immigrants’ ability to request asylum.

The migrants voted late Thursday night to leave Mexico City, beginning at 6 a.m. (EST), en route to the city of Querétaro, which is about 120 miles north of the Mexican capital. The migrants, who number between 4,000 and 5,000 and include women and children, will be on foot along a heavily traveled highway after they failed to secure buses from United Nations officials to get them to the U.S. southern border. About 200 marched to a local UN office to demand buses to transport them.

Supporters say the group is looking to go through a safer – albeit longer –  route to Tijuana, which is at least 1,600 miles away from Querétaro.

Heya Bones! What the hell is wrong with a nice blue? 😜



As I said, I agree that most will be turned away, just like they are every time this happens. My point being that this "crisis" is being blown out of proportion by our president.
