Everyone has to overcome certain barriers to ascertaining the actual facts, no matter who you are.

WashPo: Why Dumb Internet Hoaxes Work

However, 7,000+ people massing at the southern US border will soon become a cholera outbreak (or some other dread infectious disease) as well as a violent mob and a humanitarian tragedy of epic proportions.

We ALL need to try to find out the ACTUAL facts so we can advocate for what we believe are best practices by Mexico, the US and Canada. Right now, American media cannot even agree as to WHERE these humans are today.
Sorry Madeline, we are in a "fact free" world now--far too large a segment of the population. "Alternative TRUTH". That is a quote from Kellyanne Conway. And several REP congressment.

Note, they have gone from "alternative facts" to "alternative TRUTH" in about a year.

The problem is that migration is an ongoing phenomenon.

You are looking at migration in the "caravan" lens. That is a major mistake to begin with/

Migration is fluid and the groups are not a monolithic group with one mind and one set of goals. They may travel together, but their final destination and route may not be the same for all. Many seek refuge in Mexico.



BBC News World is pretty straight forward.

I agree. Humans are no more likely to respect national boundaries whilst fleeing for their lives than any other mammal, fleeing a wildfire.
