Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Over 7,000-strong migrant caravan inches closer to US border as Biden vows to end Trump's asylum policies”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

About 7,000 to 8,000 migrants have entered Guatemala from Honduras in just the past day, Reuters reported, citing Guatemala's immigration authority. Video footage shows thousands of people forcing their way through a police cordon as they cross the border into Guatemala.

Two migrant groups with well over 5,000 people are working their way toward the US, including the one that has already breached the Guatemalan border, US Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan said Saturday in a Fox News interview.

"It's coming," Morgan said. "It's already started, just as we promised and anticipated it would with this rhetoric from the new administration on the border."

Biden, who's scheduled to be inaugurated on January 20, has said he plans to "immediately" introduce an immigration bill upon taking office. His immigration plan, reported by the Los Angeles Times on Friday, reportedly includes a "pathway to citizenship" for some 11 millions of illegal aliens who are already living in the US. 

Unlike past amnesty proposals, Biden's plan wouldn't come with provisions for toughened border enforcement, according to the report.
