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.”

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’
Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.
The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.
The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”
The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.
Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.
“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
UPDATE: The judge granted our motion to compel. CISA has 14 days to comply. https://t.co/2bhwQQJTG6
