Honduran migrant: ‘President-elect Biden is going to help all of us’

In an interview with CNN, a Honduran migrant said a caravan is traveling to the U.S. because President-elect Joe Biden is giving migrants “100 days” to arrive in the country.

“I just want patience and prayers that we can get to the U.S. because they’re having a new president, Biden,” the migrant said. “He’s going to help all of us, he’s giving us 100 days to get to the U.S. and give us [legal] papers, so we can get a better life for our kids and family.”

Thousands of Honduran migrants are making their way to the U.S. after Biden promised to end the immigration policies of the Trump administration.

A transition official told NBC News that “the situation at the border isn’t going to be transformed overnight.”

Biden’s transition team has urged migrants to turn back because “now is not the time” to come.

“There’s help on the way, but now is not the time to make the journey,” the official said, according to NBC News.

According to the Associated Press, a caravan of as many as 9,000 Honduran migrants are trying to reach the U.S. border after their home country was devastated by hurricanes.

On Friday night, about 2,000 members of the caravan overwhelmed the Guatemalan authorities and entered Guatemala without showing documentation or negative COVID screenings. The caravan is predicted to arrive at the U.S. border in the coming weeks.

The official said that people in the caravan “will not find when they get to the U.S. border that from Tuesday to Wednesday, things have changed overnight and ports are all open and they can come into the United States.”

“We have to provide a message that help and hope is on the way,” the official continued. “But coming right now does not make sense for their own safety…while we put into place processes that they may be able to access in the future.”

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
