It looks like a scene out of the The Walking Dead:  Thousands of disheveled and otherwise desperate walkers are on their way though Central America, lumbering toward the American border.

In the age of President Donald Trump, this movement is just as much a protest as it is a migration, with these illegal aliens making an enormous political statement during their stampede northward:  We will not be stopped by law and order.

In fact, the defiant tribe of would-be criminals has already defied several legalities on their trek toward Texas.

For five days now hundreds of Central Americans — children, women, and men, most of them from Honduras — have boldly crossed immigration checkpoints, military bases, and police in a desperate, sometimes chaotic march toward the United States. Despite their being in Mexico without authorization, no one has made any effort to stop them.

Organized by a group of volunteers called Pueblos Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, the caravan is intended to help migrants safely reach the United States, bypassing not only authorities who would seek to deport them, but gangs and cartels who are known to assault vulnerable migrants.

Organizers like Rodrigo Abeja hope that the sheer size of the crowd will give immigration authorities and criminals pause before trying to stop them.

“If we all protect each other we’ll get through this together,” Abeja yelled through a loudspeaker on the morning they left Tapachula, on Mexico’s border with Guatemala, for the nearly monthlong trek.

According to the confidence of the rhetoric, the migratory masses do not believe that they will be stopped by conventional law enforcement – possibly setting up a massive showdown between the United States government and the bleeding heart liberals what will undoubtedly side with these travelers.

And, as if there was any doubt about the group’s intentions, participants aren’t mincing their words one bit.

When they get to the US, they hope American authorities will grant them asylum or, for some, be absent when they attempt to cross the border illegally. More likely is that it will set up an enormous challenge to the Trump administration’s immigration policies and its ability to deal with an organized group of migrants numbering in the hundreds.

The number of people who showed up to travel with the caravan caught organizers by surprise, and has overwhelmed the various towns they’ve stopped in to spend the night. Pueblos Sin Fronteras counted about 1,200 people on the first day.

Should the group reach the border unimpeded, either by Mexican officials or the criminal cartels who would just as readily snatch stragglers for their human trafficking profit potential, there is little doubt that President Donald Trump would simply allow the zombie-like herd to waltz into the country.  The defiance alone would likely bring liberals to the borders in droves, creating the potential for one hell of a border battle.
