Gateway Pundit – A Bridge Under Construction in the Darien Gap Will Soon Provide an ‘Easier and Less Dangerous’ Path to the United States: Congressional Candidate

Mara Macie, a small group of journalists, and a few others arrived in Panama last Thursday to get a first-hand look at the Darien Gap between Colombia and Panama—a place largely considered one of the world’s most dangerous migration routes.

The group was led by Michael Yon, a former Army Green Beret, war correspondent, and expert on the unabated migration crisis happening south of the U.S. border. Macie, who is running for U.S. Congress in Florida’s 5th Congressional District, said she is “very concerned” about the number of people coming through Central America to cross the southern border of the United States.

Often desiring to reach the United States, she said, migrants from all over the world cross the Darien Gap. In 2023, a record reported number of migrants—over 520,000—crossed the jungle that stretches between Colombia and Panama.

The first camp Macie visited, Lajas Blancas, received 1,300 new migrants over the course of the day. Most individuals she encountered came from Venezuela, while many others were from Africa, Afghanistan, Iran, and China. “When I [spoke to migrants and] asked about their final destination, a minimum of 95 percent of them said the United States,” she estimated.
