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.”

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
