A new caravan is forming in El Salvador and the ‘poor’ migrants are using smartphones to organize on social media.

The Salvadoran migrants are using Facebook and Whatsapp to communicate with each other to quickly spread tips and tricks on how to safely reach the US border and how to get across.

“I found out about the caravan on Facebook. Someone posted a link in a WhatsApp chat,” a 38-year-old widow with children aged 11 and 13, told AFP.

Migrants from El Salvador have to pass through Guatemala and Mexico to reach the US border. They are passing through two countries which could offer them a safe haven if they were truly fleeing violence.

The migrants however, refuse asylum in Mexico because they want free medical care, housing and food stamps that the US government will provide them thanks to the Democrats.

AFP reported:

“As a group of migrants prepare to form a new caravan to set out from El Salvador for the promised land of the United States, eager participants exchange messages over social media.

How will they cross the border? What should they bring? Mothers and their children, youngsters fleeing violent gangs, men hoping to find a way to feed their families: the caravan attracts all sorts.

As soon as one caravan leaves, plans for the next one swamp social media. Hundreds of interested parties fire off questions, engage in discussions or share their hopes and fears.

“My aim is to reach the United States. In the caravan, no one will be able to touch me,” said one rasping voice in an audio post on a chat for the last caravan to leave El Salvador.
