Construction Of Central American Superhighway Could Increase Flood Of Illegal Immigrants

Pacific Corridor

A Central American superhighway project that recently broke ground in Guatemala could worsen the invasion of unaccompanied minors from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras by providing a direct, high-speed route through Mexico to the U.S. border.

Mexico is taking some steps that could stem the flow of illegal aliens, such as speeding up trains to reduce the number who stowaway on the freight train known as “the Beast.” But as WND reported, Mexico and Guatemala have signed an agreement that “fast-tracks” the delivery of Central American illegal immigrants to the United States through the Mexican government’s issuance of a regional visitor card that will allow Central Americans to remain in Mexico for as long as it takes for them to travel to the U.S.

Last weekend, while visiting the border with Mexico in McAllen, Texas, with Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, WND reported the Central American illegal immigrants who do not have the $6,000 to $9,000 required to hire the services of a criminal “coyote” guide are forced to walk to the Rio Grande, ride “the Beast” or take commercial buses to journey north.
