The caravan of Central Americans making their way toward our southern border has dominated the news for weeks. Rather than rely on others’ reports of what’s happening, Heritage experts flew to Mexico to get the real story, firsthand.
Nolan Peterson, Ana Quintana, and David Inserra brought three different approaches to the caravan. Peterson wrote about what was happening; Quintana about why it was happening, and Inserra wrote about how to fix it.
Left wing organizers with ties to liberal groups in the United States urged people to start traveling northward from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to overwhelm border authorities. Along the way, they actively discouraged those in the caravan from accepting offers of asylum from Mexico. Suffice to say, there’s much more to this story than you will hear from the media, but you can find it in The Daily Signal.
Thank you for letting Heritage get to the bottom of the caravan problem, so we can talk about real solutions to secure our border. Whether it’s a question of drug violence, immigration, border security or all three, Heritage can develop policy solutions because of you.
Beyond securing the southern border, what policies would prevent caravans from forming in the first place?
