A group of migrant women in the caravan announced Thursday that they would begin a hunger strike to protest the slow pace at which they are being allowed to apply for asylum, as officials from the United States and Mexico are set to meet this weekend to negotiate a plan to process their claims.

The fast, which has no set end date, represents a dramatic escalation from the migrants, most of whom have been waiting in Tijuana, Mexico, to cross into the United States through official ports of entry for weeks.

The article goes on to state the following:

The protest raises the stakes for the governments of the United States and Mexico, which have been engaged in a back-and-forth about how to process migrants’ asylum claims. On Sunday, President Donald Trump said on Twitter that Mexico would essentially act as a waiting room for migrants as their applications are processed in the United States, though Mexican officials said no deal had been agreed to yet.

Fifteen women are set to begin striking, and they expect the number will increase gradually. The women who led the group said they want the governments to expedite humanitarian visas for them, to increase the number of migrants being allowed to cross into the United States, and to halt any deportations against migrants.

  1. How arrogant are these women and the marchers who think they have any rights at all in this situation. They do not. They should be humbled and grateful that people even listen to their griping about how horrible their own country is to force them to run 2000 miles away. Why not go back and have a hunger strike to force their own government to help them. Why come to our border and suck off our compassion and our generosity? No. This is not how you get asylum. Go through the legal steps as I did. It takes years, but it is legitimate.
