A caravan of over 500 migrants from Honduras dissolved upon entering Guatemala, with some being returned to Honduras due to lack of documentation.

President Biden’s administration has downplayed record-high illegal immigration levels, attributing it to seasonal surges and a broken immigration system.

The failed caravan follows a larger one of 8,000 people in December.

The situation at the border has been described as “not unusual” by the White House, with historical patterns of migrants using various means to reach the U.S. border.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, “What we’re seeing here at the border, the increased migration flow, certainly, it ebbs and flows.”

“And we’re at a time of the year where we’re seeing more at the border. And it’s not unusual. This is an immigration system that has been broken for decades. And the president has taken this very seriously to try to do more. That’s why we have the comprehensive immigration policy legislation that the president put forth on day one,” she continued.
