The migrant caravan is real.  The caravan is a hard, tangible fact.  And the caravan is headed for the southern border; there is no doubt.  What is the Biden administration doing to prepare for what's coming?

Haiti is not part of Central America.  Neither is Ukraine.  Or any other Middle Eastern or African country.  Yet migrants from around the world are heading toward the southern border of the United States.  Why?  What is so special about the southern border?

Reality is not aligning with the political narrative.  The political narrative about immigration is as disconnected from reality as has been the political narrative over gun control, abortion, gender identity, racial justice, and a host of other politicized issues.  The problems have become so large, so complex, and so visible that it's no longer possible to sweep them under the rug of political narratives.

A Haitian migrant taking part in what could be the largest ever migrant caravan through Mexico to the U.S. is demanding that President Biden keep his promise to allow them to stay once they reach the border.

"He promised the Haitian community he will help them," the migrants, who were interviewed by Fox News Friday, said. "He will recall Title 42. He will help us have real asylum."

The migrant is taking part in a caravan that could become the largest ever to reach the U.S. southern border, with the current number of close to 10,000 migrants, is expected to swell to about 15,000 before it reaches the border.

The caravan departed Tapachula on the Mexico-Guatemala border on Monday. The migrants, which mostly come from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua, will travel what is known as the coastal route to reach the U.S. border.

Migrants walk in a caravan heading to Mexico City, in Pijijiapan, Mexico in 2021. The new caravan is expected to be the largest ever.

"We consider we are around 9,500, it measures 5 1/2 km from the start to the end, people keep on joining, in the first police check there were approx 100-150 national guard, INM, state police and let us through freely," the caravan's organizer, Luis Villagran told Fox News Monday.

The migrant's comments come as the Biden administration continues its fight to end Title 42, a Trump-era rule that allows the U.S. to expel asylum seekers without the typical legal process. The policy was enacted early in the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to help prevent the virus from spreading, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announcing earlier this year that it planned to lift the order.

But a lawsuit filed by 24 states at least temporarily put plans to end the rule to a halt, with a Louisiana U.S. District Judge ruling that the restrictions can stay in place until the lawsuit is resolved. The states have argued that lifting the rule would lead to a "wave of illegal migration and drug trafficking."

Critics have blamed the president for creating what has become a crisis at the southern border, arguing Biden's reversal of Trump-era immigration policies has created an incentive for migrants to make the dangerous journey through Mexico to the U.S. border.

The crisis has become politically challenging for the White House, seemingly leading to Biden's change of tune when it comes to migrants seeking refuge in the U.S.

"Don't leave your town or city or community," Biden said in an interview with ABC last year. "We're gonna make sure we have facilities in those cities and towns run by department of — by DHS and also access with HHS, the Health and Human Services, to say you can apply for asylum from where you are right now."

U.S. Border Patrol agents capture a migrant near the U.S. and Mexico border fence in Calexico, California, U.S., on Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2021. The number of undocumented immigrants apprehended trying to cross the southern border is down slightly compared to this time last month, when crossings were at a 21-year high, NBC News reports.

But the administration's fight to end Title 42 has seemingly sent a different message to migrants amassing for the caravan, who are calling on Biden to allow them into the country."

"Now we need him to keep his promise." the Haitain migrant said.

The migrant caravan is real, the caravan exists as a verifiable fact.  Without a doubt, the caravan is headed toward the southern border.  What is the Biden administration going to do about it?  Is the Biden administration going to ignore that reality until it becomes another crisis?

What is the Biden administration going to do about it?

With any luck, the Biden Administration is preparing to fast-track their immigration while simultaneously organizing a job fair with Texas restaurants.... which are closing by the dozens because they can't find staff.

The Biden administration will ignore it. The msm will for the most part-under report it. The American left will celebrate what it will do to the nation.

That does seem to be the modus operandi of the incompetent.

42 has not been dropped so, these folks "should" be stopped at the border and not allowed in until they follow and meet the standards/requirements for requesting asylum.

But, our "Border Queen" VP obviously isn't doing her job - why not?

Key word in that is "SHOULD".  They SHOULD be stopped.  But given the Human Fuck up's stance and the hookers performance at securing the border, I doubt they will be stopped. 

They'll be loaded onto Biden Air and moved all over the country just like they have for the past year.

Biden has shown to be able to fit them under one bridge. Sweep 'em away in a few days. No problem.

Funny how future Illegal aliens know Joe is so weak they can make demands of him.  Why don't the dems see how weak he is, he is showing it day after day.

They know he is weak. That is why they nominated him. He is easily controlled. He had to give up all power to the radical left to get the Democrat nomination. 

They are getting exactly what they want out of Biden. The inmates are running the asylum; and we are all paying for it.
