Honduran Migrant Says 20,000 Will Soon Force Their Way Through U.S. Border; Claims Applying For Asylum Is A “Waste Of Time”

Marco Gómez, a 26-year-old construction worker from Honduras who is currently traveling with one of the Central American caravans, recently said migrants are about to “send a message” to President Donald Trump.

Per The Epoch Times, Gómez stated:

“We’ll stay together and be strong, and then move on to the US, like people going from one country to another. Marching.”

He added that himself and many others will most likely not apply for asylum. They’ll choose a different path: entering the U.S. illegally and, if necessary, forcefully.

“It’s a waste of time. It’s a process that takes months and years—it’s a long time,” Gómez said.
