The migrant caravan, the supposed group of refugees fleeing violence in Central America, has all but admitted that they are not asylum seekers but economic migrants looking for better financial situations in the United States.
After refusing Mexico’s offer for asylum in two of Mexico’s safer states as well as provisional jobs and healthcare, it seems the caravan is now asking for some pretty high-and-mighty demands.
It seems they’ve demanded that the United States grant them asylum within the next 72 hours, or to give each and every migrant $50,000 US Dollars to go home. Additionally, they demand that the United States remove all military bases from Honduras.
“It may seem like a lot of money to you,” Organizer Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa told The San Diego Union-Tribune paper. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”
