Little clearer now, that the Hondurans have a just reason for fleeing...and when you put it into perspective on what happened to the previous administration Zelaya who was ousted in US backed regime change.
Who is to blame?

I'll agree we do not need to be in the business of regime change around the globe. But I fail to see how that means we should be drug down to the level of other countries. Wouldn't it be better to raise them to our level?
In a previous post, someone said that the migrants attempts to enter the US was an affront to sovereignty.
Yet the US has attempted to 'raise to their level' of many countries and sent 'peacekeeping' troops (often unrequested) everywhere.
Where, and when, is the sovereignty of other countries ever respected by the US?
Did the European migrants respect the sovereignty of the Native Americans?

Unfortunately I believe these invaders will be granted access across the border, with or without “asylum”, legally or illegally. There are too many people here (judges, politicians, socialists) who will make sure they’re seen as the great humanitarians who spited Trump and his followers and led the progressives to a great win for the world.
No way will that happen, not under Trumps watch. Trump has the Ultimate Unlimited power under National Security. Especially protecting our borders. The border patrol and local police will be the sacrificial lambs till the
Military is forced to beat the INVADERS down.

also to note more specifically:
The US role in the Honduras coup and subsequent violence-
....a number of U.S. officials -- most notably then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton -- played an important role in preventing Zelaya’s return to office and the junta consolidating its power in the face of massive nonviolent protests.
How US policy in Honduras set the stage for today's migration
Since the coup, writes historian Dana Frank, “a series of corrupt administrations has unleashed open criminal control of Honduras, from top to bottom of the government.” The Trump administration’s recognition, in December 2017, of President Juan Orlando Hernández’s re-election—after a process marked by deep irregularities, fraud and violence. This continues Washington’s longstanding willingness to overlook official corruption in Honduras as long as the country’s ruling elites serve what are defined as U.S. economic and geopolitical interests.
Organized crime, drug traffickers and the country’s police heavily overlap. The frequent politically motivated killings are rarely punished. In 2017, Global Witness, an international nongovernmental organization, found that Honduras was the world’s deadliest country for environmental activists.

This brief video of a Father, whose daughter was murdered by an ILLEGAL ALIEN on Thanksgiving day, is touching.
This Could Be Any One of Us: twitter.com...
If Congress cared about the people who elected them, construction of a long-deep-high Wall between the U.S./Mexico would be well underway. And number of Americans killed by illegal aliens, or the drugs smuggled in, would be steadily decreasing.
But since Congress doesn't give a damn about the safety of citizens, President Trump should call for an urgent, nationwide vote. YEA or NEA for building "The Wall", starting IMMEDIATELY.

In the first video you can even hear the "leader" in the loud speaker say "vamos compañeros, adelante...No somos criminales"
"Compañeros" is how communists/socialist revolutionaries name each other. It means "Comrads." So you got a "socialist revolutionary" or even "communist" being one of the leaders of this particular "caravan."
Clearly the mob is being directed by agitators -the video speaks for itself. This is an invasion charge; it's legitimate to repel it AS NEEDED.
typical ISIS behavior. use kids to cover illegal activity
Hatred is a strong emotion exploited by propagandists. Loaded language is particularly effective in triggering it. There seems to be a nearly endless supply of nasty words that promote and exploit hatred toward particular racial, ethnic, or religious groups.
How can you protect yourself from the types of people that the Bible calls “profitless talkers” and “deceivers of the mind”? (Titus 1:10) Once you are familiar with some of their tricks, you are in a better position to evaluate any message or information that comes your way. Here are some ways to do this.
Be selective: ...
Use discernment: ...
Put information to the test: ...
Ask questions: As we have seen, there are many today who would like to ‘delude us with persuasive arguments.’ (Colossians 2:4) Therefore, when we are presented with persuasive arguments, we should ask questions.
First, examine whether there is bias. What is the motive for the message? If the message is rife with name-calling and loaded words, why is that? Loaded language aside, what are the merits of the message itself? Also, if possible, try to check the track record of those speaking. Are they known to speak the truth? If “authorities” are used, who or what are they? Why should you regard this person—or organization or publication—as having expert knowledge or trustworthy information on the subject in question? If you sense some appeal to emotions, ask yourself, ‘When viewed dispassionately, what are the merits of the message?’
