The video report below describes an attempt by a group of migrants to get across the border between Bosnia and Croatia.
The situation is eerily reminiscent of the caravan of “migrants” that originated in Honduras and is now passing through Mexico, heading for the southern border of the USA. Those Honduran migrants didn’t regard Guatemala or Mexico as their final destination, but merely as transit countries through which they had to pass to reach their ultimate goal.
The same is true of the migrants in Bosnia who were trying to get into Croatia. Their ultimate goal wasn’t Croatia, or Slovenia, or even Austria, but Germany. That’s the Promised Land for all the “refugees” who follow the Balkan Route into the EU.

|00:01||In Bosnia-Herzegovina, the police have stopped approximately 200 people from getting to the|
|00:06||Croatian border in order to reach EU neighbouring countries. They are migrants who have been|
|00:15||housed near the border. After they were stopped, most of them returned to their accommodations.|
|00:24||Others were holding out at the border for hours, in hope that they would be let into Croatia after all.|
|00:32||In northwest Bosnia, there are thousands of migrants waiting to be able to continue their|
