A migrant caravan moving out of Honduras toward the U.S. border called the incoming Biden government to honor their"responsibilities" to the migrants moving north, mentioning the incoming government's vow to facilitate Trump's limitations on asylum.
But on Sundayan undercover Biden transition officer stated that migrants expecting to claim asylum from the U.S. throughout the first couple weeks of this new government"have to know they are going to have the ability to come in the USA instantly," NBC News reports.
Over 1,000 Honduran migrants transferred into Guatemala on Friday without enrolling as a portion of a bigger caravan that left a Honduran city earlier in the afternoon.
The Associated Press reported they are hoping to get a warmer reception once they hit the U.S. boundary, and a statement issued by postsecondary rights team Pueblo Sin Fronteras, on behalf of the caravan, said it anticipates the Biden government to do it.
The Biden transition officer, however, warned migrants against coming back into the U.S. throughout the first days of this new government, telling NBC that while"there is help along how," currently"isn't the opportunity to make the journey."
"The situation in the border is not likely to be changed immediately," the officer told that the socket.
"We need to extend a message that hope and health is on the way, but arriving straight now does not make sense to their own security...while we put into place procedures which they could be able to get later on," the official stated.
The Trump government has stated the program has helped finish the pull factors that attract migrants northwest, but critics say it's cruel and sets them in danger.
The migrants' group pointed to claims to terminate the asylum cooperative arrangements the government made out of Northern Triangle countries.
President Trump cautioned last week that finishing his policies and raising incentives could result in"a tidal wave of illegal immigrationa tide just like you have never noticed before," asserting that there were signs of flows.
