'There's Help On the Way': Biden Official Tells Migrant Caravans To Wait Until Border Is Open

The incoming Biden administration is now telling thousands of would-be illegal aliens from Central America not to make the journey to the Southwest U.S. border “now,” saying the administration will need time to roll back the Trump administration’s restrictions on asylees so hoards of “migrants” can be allowed into the U.S.

The Biden transition official, who spoke to NBC News anonymously (which normally isn’t a good standard, but hey, it was good enough under the Trump administration) said migrants, who’ve already formed multiple thousand-person caravans to journey to the United States’ border, "need to understand they're not going to be able to come into the United States immediately."

"There's help on the way, but now is not the time to make the journey," the official said.

Translation: let us work out the situation so you can get in illegally without a problem.

The official also reportedly said those who’ve been waiting on the Mexico side of the border for admission into the U.S., thanks to Trump’s more stringent immigration enforcement policies, will be the top priority for entry after Biden takes office Wednesday.

The report comes just days after viral video shows thousands of Honduran migrants breaking through a security checkpoint at the Guatemalan border on their way to the United States, flooding past border guards without so much as passing a COVID screening first.

As many as 9,000 migrants from Honduras alone are already reportedly headed to the Southwest U.S. border to attempt to cross into the United States illegally as soon as Biden is inaugurated.
