Latino media are practically salivating at the idea of new audiences flooding into America as part of this heralded. Mother of all Caravans, set to begin its “march” through Mexico tomorrow morning – October 23rd – at 6:00 AM, and estimated, as per Telemundo´s Nacho Lozano, at 95K strong.
Lozano is seen at the morning kaffeeklatsch Hoy Día,The migrants are “protesters”, who have made their way to America. To seek asylumThis is:
ARANXTA LOIZAGA: Thousands of migrants of various nationalities who are stranded on Mexico’s southern border, that is, with Guatemala, are preparing to begin a march to the United States that some are even calling ‘The mother of all caravans’.
RAÚL TORRES: It is expected that tomorrow at six in the morning this caravan will depart from here, which some call ‘The mother of all caravans’.
NACHO LOZANO – The sheer number of migrants that might be taking part in this caravan (caravan), is quite impressive. They have actually called it the’mother of all caravans’.
Although the exact number of protesters remains to be determined, it is likely that the majority of 95,000 migrants from Mexico will pass through the border while they wait for papers to enter the United States to apply for asylum.
LOIZAGA – It is important to note that when we asked this exact question last week to Alejandro Mayorkas (Secretary of Homeland Security), he stated that they are closely following every migratory movement and that if a caravan tried to reach this country it would not succeed. This is what he stated emphatically.
LUIS GARCIA VILLAGRAN, THE CENTER FOR HUMAN DIGNIFICATION: We’re going to walk, and it is not a caravan. It is an exodus away from injustice, poverty and dignity for the migrant community. Either they move or they die.
Lozano´s estimate is on par with what the networks have been anticipating in recent news reports, some of which highlight threats from the caravan´s organizer, activist Irineo Mujica from Pueblo Sin FronterasTo the effect that they are ready to fight against any attempt to stop them. Hence Lozano´s description- not as migrants- but as protesters.
Will Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, be on Mujicas´ hit list? After all, as per Loizaga, Mayorka EMPHATICALLY told her on air “that if this caravan tried to get here to the country, it simply was not going to succeed”.
Make sure to get some popcorn. We´ll be watching.
