Immigrant Caravan's WTF?!



This is just kerrraaazy!

I've heard mention of it over the last few days but only read into it tonight. According to different sources there are between 4 and 15 thousand people marching toward the border of the united states, with more joining in each day.

This particular caravan is from Honduras in the main, but already there are apparently several other copy-cat caravans starting from Salvador and other places too.

Looking at videos of the marching lines it just seems apocalyptic. Whats going to happen here, and more importantly, whats the knock-on effect going forward? Is there going to be violence at the border and people killed en masse (already many clashes along other countries borders)?

Why are they walking through several safe countries if they just want to escape so-called immediate oppression?

If the united states lets them in, surely that's the signal for the whole of central and south America to just walk in and set up shop. What signal will that send about Europe, if any?

This is going to end really badly. Its so out of control, I don't even have a suggestion as to how to fix it.

Does anyone else see this ending in a good way?

I mean, even if a gigantic wall were built, this gives the impression that people are going to just camp out beside it, in ever greater numbers.

What then?!

I completely understand people needing to escape dangerous situations. But this is something different. This isn't about safety or danger.

I feel that the majority of the blame lies at the feet of those who rolled out red-carpets for immigration. It was always going to end this way. A bad idea for everyone involved, except for the short-term, feel-good, no-brainers who got this ball rolling.

Plenty of things shouldnt have happened in the past with regard wars and western intervention, but this insanity was never going to solve any of it. In fact, it seems like it has made things far, far worse going forward.

Its almost incredible.
