What to call caravan members
Regarding the Dec. 1 news article “Leery caravan migrants moved to new shelter”:
There is a problem with using the wrong noun to describe the people at the U.S.-Mexico border. These people are mistakenly called migrants when it is clear they are refugees seeking asylum. Migrants come for seasonal work, then return to their countries; refugees are escaping slavery, wars and death.
