Two more large groups at Antelope Wells. Part of an overall pattern of large groups going to this remote crossing point, crossing when the border is closed and stopping to claim asylum.
The second group was 330 migrants
The preceding was 290 migrants
Customs and Border Protection said the migrants were from Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Honduras .
There have now been 28 groups with more than 100 migrants. Some think perhaps a wall might stop this, but instead I think it shows: (1) groups are going to be fluid to adjust to situations – if it wasn’t here it would be somewhere else (2) likely a direct effect of the metering policy. Note that these are not people trying to “sneak” into the US, but instead asylum seekers finding their best place to claim and then organizers bringing buses.
