Do you think the caravan migrants know how asylum works?
I think they think that as long as they charge into the country, thats asylum.

Most only seem to know what the caravan organizers are telling them...that they're desperately needed in the US and that they'll be received with open arms (and free stuff). When you're offered asylum by the wealthiest country in Latin America yet turn that down, preferring to go home instead, it's clear you didn't really plan things out all that well.

No. They heard that the US was a kind country made up of nearly all people descended from immigrants, with even a statue with a placard of welcome outside New York. They didn't know about the new regime, exploiting every opportunity to whip up hate and prejudice. You 'all should change that Statue of Liberty, (Truth in Adveristing...)

No, they actually don't.

Of course they know, which is why they refused asylum in Mexico, they also know that there are millions of illegals in the USA who have lived there for decades without being removed and they know that every now and then the USA give citizenship to illegals like they did in the 1980s and temporary 'permission' to remain like DACA...and that is what they are hopeing for...and as long as the USA give a tiny hope they will come and many more will follow

They know how it works
1) You must enter the country to apply for it. You cannot get it outside the country.
2) The law says that once someone arrives at a border crossing and asks for it, they must be allowed to apply for it. Turning them away without letting them apply is illegal.

They know exactly how asylum works, and they know they are not qualified or eligible for asylum, especially since they refused asylum & job offers from Mexico. They have also bypassed asylum officers ready to take their applications & stormed the fence, assaulted law enforcement officers. They want to get into US, and intend to violate the border, visa & immigration laws. They know exactly what they are doing.

That was what they were told when they started the trip to the border.

They don't care. That's the criminal mind.

No, they just want to survive in a cruel world.
