They trued to enter by force and the US frustrated their attempt with teargas.



On the Mexican side of the border a humanitarian crisis has erupted.

I would be curious would the current administration be able to prevent them from marching all the way to Washington DC to protest the current anti asylum seeker friendly policies? I would be curious when they would be on the streets of DC. They moved faster than expected from Central America to the US. Though I still don't understand why this type of caravan activity haven't happened in the past can anyone explain why? Apparently this caravan had to had breached borders of multiple countries including the heavily guarded southern border of Mexico.

I would say they are similar cirumstances. Both are fleeing violence and bad governments. Child malnutrition is worse in Central America than Venezuela. Only difference is Central American countries have right wing "democratic" governments, so no one cares. Plus it's just central America, not anywhere important. Just a bunch of "animals" as one Mexican said on here. Venezuela has a leftist government so its ok to **** on them.
