Bongino.com is reporting that the Mexican government has denied access to buses and as a result, the caravan that has been macrching toward the Southern US border has stalled.
According to Fox News, “The leading migrant caravan trying to make its way to the United States border is admitting defeat after asking the Mexican government to provide dozens of buses to speed up the group’s journey northward.”
“The attempt to travel by bus failed,” an organizer behind the caravan told the Associated Press
The estimated number of migrants has dropped to 4,000 people after thousands applied for asylum in Mexico or returned to their country of origin.
“Of the friends that I have been with, all want to go back,” said a 28-year-old mother of three.
How does this impact on the election narratives?
Those that get permission to stay in Mexico will still be that much closer. There are still several thousand lingering. And whatever initiated this exodus that reached, at least in some reports, the size of a military division, didn’t cease to exist.
Someone got this train rolling. If that trigger is not identified future “caravans” may be motivated to make a run for our border.
Does any of this motivate either base? Does it move the needle? Or has this new development deflated whatever ire it raised in recent weeks?
