Sickness, Fear, Harassment Whittle Away at Migrant Caravan in Mexico

Source: Associated Press/KTLA

Little by little, sickness, fear and police harassment are whittling down the migrant caravan making its way to the U.S. border, with many of the 4,000 to 5,000 migrants camped overnight under plastic sheeting in a town in southern Mexico complaining of exhaustion.

The group, many with children and even pushing toddlers in strollers, planned to depart Mapastepec at dawn Thursday with more than 1,000 miles still to go before they reach the U.S. border.

But in recent days a few hundred have accepted government offers to bus them back to their home countries.

Jose David Sarmientos Aguilar, a 16-year-old student from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, was one of at least 80 migrants waiting in the town square of Huixtla, where the rest of the caravan departed Wednesday morning, for four buses that would take them back to Honduras.

Sounds like there won't be a whole lot for Trump's troops to shoot at soon...just the desperate families who have nowhere to go back to.

1. What a horrible predicament to be in. I just cannot imagine

aside from the physical hardship the mental strain must be even worse. It certainly seems something could be done by countries that have so much in comparison to these refugees on the highway if the will to do it was there. These are refugees and unfortunately the powers that be don't give a damn especially in our country.

4. I see them limping from blisters and more.

Where do they even get enough water to get through the day? Bath?
Food? The heat!

Oh! They have my deep compassion.

5. A pathetic demonstration of cold Republican hearts....

as the orange buffoon stokes fear in his base over nothing.

Wish we could all give them a big hug and open arms.......

I worry about the weather the ones that make it will see, as they may get stuck on the border indefinitely.....
