Migrant Caravan Leader Vows to Flood US Border: 'We Are Ready for War!'
'We are leaving in 20 days'
Sixty thousand illegal aliens, consisting of mostly Haitians, are heading to the U.S. border in the next week as a second migrant caravan prepares to flood the United States.
One of the leaders of the migrant invasion is Irineo Mujica, a United States and Mexico dual citizen and also the director of advocacy group Pueblo Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders).
Mujica warned they "are ready for war" and will reach the United States regardless of the consent of governments.
Mujica warned on social media:
"We are leaving in 20 days.
"We prefer to march with [travel] papers."
"And this time, with papers or without papers, we are ready for war," he warned.
"If the National Guard comes and they are cowardly enough to beat women and children, let them prepare because God's hand is with us."

Mujica's remarks came amid frustration that the Mexican government had started detaining caravans en route to the United States.
The United States pays Mexico $320 million in aid every year to incentivize securing its own border.
Donald Trump last year worked with Mexico's leader to stem the influx of illegal aliens.
But after Biden took office, the agreement, which was working very well, was thrown out of the window.
Right now, there are 60,000 mostly Haitian migrants heading to Texas.
That number is on top of the 20,000 Haitians who illegally crossed into Del Rio last month.
Earlier this month, Panama's foreign minister warned the United States that 60,000 migrants are heading toward the US-Mexico border.
Erika Mouynes said the migrants, many of them of Haitian origin, are now making their way through Central America.
"We've engaged with every single authority that we can think of, that we can come across, to say, 'Please, let's pay attention to this,'" said Mouynes.
Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said he ramped up efforts to secure his state's border due to the Biden administration refusing to do anything.
"Texas National Guard is gearing up at the border for increased caravans attempting to cross the border caused by Biden's open-border policy," Abbott tweeted last week.

They are working with the Texas Dept. of Public Safety to seal surge locations at the border & arrest trespassers.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas warned that 400,000 illegal aliens could swarm the border in this month alone.
