Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said he is unconcerned about a caravan of several hundred people moving through Central America to the southern border of the United States.
“This caravan is not anything even remotely similar to what we saw in ’18 and a little bit of ’19 — so, it’s a few folks here, a few folks there,” Wolf said in an interview with Fox News on Thursday, marking his first comment on the development.
The article goes on to state the following:
The group embarked from Honduras earlier this week. Photos and video shot by journalists tracking the group’s movement indicate it comprises families with babies and young children, unaccompanied teens, and adults.
Acting Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan tweeted Thursday, We’re closely monitoring the caravan departing Honduras. Our message is clear: don’t place your life in the hands of smugglers. Don’t risk the health and safety of your family on this dangerous trip.”
