Migrant 'caravan' at U.S.-Mexico border prepares for mass crossing
Reuters ^ | 26 Apr 18 | Delphine Schrank

Posted on 04/26/2018 2:15:35 AM PDT by SkyPilot

Hundreds of Central American migrants from a caravan that crossed Mexico reunited in Tijuana on Wednesday and planned to cross the border together this weekend in defiance of threats by U.S. President Donald Trump to repel them.

The timing of the migrants arrival could compromise a flurry of talks this week to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which Trump has repeatedly threatened to scrap if Mexico does not crack down on the flow of Central Americans through its territory.

Busloads of migrants began arriving on Tuesday at a shelter that was a five minute-walk from the border and within sight of a U.S. flag waving under an overpass connecting the two countries.

While many rested in tents after a month-long journey across Mexico, others wandered up to the border to contemplate the next stage in their journey.

"The wall doesn't look that tall," said Kimberly George, a 15-year-old girl from Honduras as she looked toward a stunted barrier a few feet away. "I really want to cross it."

Migrants said they fled their homes in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras because of death threats from local gangs, the murder of family members or political persecution.

Moving from town to town, the migrant caravan became a stumbling block for U.S.-Mexico relations after Trump unleashed a series of tweets in early April, telling Mexican authorities to stop them.

More busloads of migrants arrived during the course of the day, overflowing the first shelter. Local migrant aid groups said it was the biggest single group they had seen arrive together as they scrambled to find places in ten shelters.

Methinks the US will deal far more violently than the oft-criticized Israelis at the Gaza border.

Difference:

US-Mexican border - they want in to find a better life an employment.

Israel-Gaza (HAMAS) border - they want in to kill every single Jew.

They went all the way from central America to the U.S. Mexican border and no one turned them back?

There is no “Caravan” of people marching towards the border.

These are people who Mexico has given free passage through Mexico to crash out border in a propaganda event.

They are being bussed from event to event by paid community organizers who are funded by open borders NGOs. Once they get to their events they all line up into a caravan, march a few miles and then get back on their buses and drive to a new event closer to the border.

It's a group of insurgents producing a stage managed media propaganda event.

This is an Invasion of our nation - pure and simple. The Invasion is aided and abetted by Mexico, Guatamala, El Salador, Honduras, and the United Nations.

They are literally traveling in buses provided by the Globalists.

Migrants said they fled their homes in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras because of death threats from local gangs, the murder of family members or political persecution.

Everyone knows this is complete BS. The "migrants" have been coached for years to simply say they are fleeing "threats, murder of family, or political persecution" because they know those are the "trigger" words that "justify" them getting "asylum" in the United States. These Invaders are doing this for two purposes:

1. To obtain economic freebies from the US taxpayer in the form of Universal Program for Subsidized Phones for Low Income (ObamaPhones), EBT Food Stamps (SNAP), ObamaCare Subsidies for Immigrants, ObamaCare Subsidies for Low Income, Medicaid, TANF Welfare, Energy Assistance, EITC, General Assistance Cash, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Assets for Independence, School Lunch Block Grant, Job Assistance, Job Training, Minority Job Assistance, Job Relocation, Woman Infants and Children's Program, Hispanic Jobs Program, Needy Families Cash Assistance, Migrant Education, Title One Grants to Local Education Authorities, Social Security for Refugees, and anything else they can scam.

2. The Globalists and the Deep State are pushing and encouraging the Invaders in order to destroy sovereign borders and accelerate the New World Order (an no, this is not a "conspiracy theory." It is a conspiracy fact.

Are you sure. They aren’t just living off food from your table? If they can’t fix their own country, we don’t need them here unless they are a persecuted minority. Might I add, they hate America.
This defiant, televised act is really a big kabuki production. Arrest them all, give them choices, go home, go to prison, or sign this document forfeiting all public taxpayer assistance and forfeit the right to sponsor other foreigners regardless of relationship.. for 20 years.

If I was a caravaneer, I, too, would use Tijuana as the entry point. Surely Gov Moonbeam wouldn’t shoot or harm us and we’d be adding to the Democratic vote, right?

The SOLUTION:

No NAFTA talks, build the damn wall, set up a false wall inside Mexico’s territory, defend our incursion onto their land with our military and keep the aliens OUT and on the Ave of No Escape. Make Mexico feed them, water them and clean up their excrement. Send them back into Mexico and make Mexico accountable. Notify the world this WILL happen.

Those who planned this march have only one thing in mind: dead bodies. They want some of migrants to be dead while attempting to cross the border and clashing with U.S. LEO's. The left will use it to whip up hysteria and rally their base, carrying this momentum to win mid-term election and probably more.

However, this is a double-edged sword and can easily work against them. This circus could drive independents to Trump's side.

Let's see. These grifters claim that at home they live in a neighborhood with gang members and criminals, so that qualifies them for "refugee" and "asylum" status.

Well than, I suppose that logic makes half of Chicago native born into "refugees". And half of St. Louis, Baltimore, Detroit, and NOLA, etc, etc.

We should put these clowns on a boat and ship them to Sweden or Germany.

Is that the ISIS salute? Mr. Gatling had an interesting invention that would be useful for stopping mass invasions.

Bingo. And it is the EXACT same strategy as the Fakestinian invasion of Israel from Gaza that is taking place right now.

The Mexican government is helping and aiding them. Right out in the open.

Not only is illegal invasion prosperous to Mexico (gets rid of their undesirables and also Billions in ca$h flows from US back to Mexican economy), the Mexicans learned from Erodgen in Turkey.

Erdogan threatens to let 3m refugees into Europe

Erdogan has successfully employed the "refugee" card for several years now, and does so to this day. If he doesn't get his way on something, he floods the EU with even more "refugees."

Our "friends" in Mexico are using the "refugees" as a bargaining chip for NAFTA renegotiation's with Trump.

Commies love dead bodies because they can be used as martyrs. Live humans have far less value. They are perfectly capable of killing one of their own to manufacture a martyr.

“Our “friends” in Mexico are using the “refugees” as a bargaining chip for NAFTA renegotiation’s with Trump.”

Then it’s time to cancel a whole bunch of Mexican diplomatic visas and put a hold on any “aid” money. Let the Mexican Government know that if they let a single one of these criminals past their side of the border these actions will be permanent.

And while we are at it start closing Mexican consular offices and restrict it to one someplace in Wyoming.

Donald Trump ran on building the wall and securing our borders.

I believed in and supported Donald trump from the very beginning, but I have yet to see a wall.

I'm sad to say; If he lets this mob of HOSTILE INVADERS into our country, I think we've all had.
