Posted on 10/30/2018 12:01:23 PM PDT by Kartographer
Mexican authorities arrested two Hondurans who allegedly shot at federal police officers escorting the migrant caravan across the southern state of Chiapas. The attack follows shortly after government warnings about Molotov cocktail attacks around a second caravan near the border with Guatemala. The attack took place near Ignacio Zaragoza, Chiapas, when members of Mexicos Federal Police were escorting the migrant caravan as part of Operativo Caminante or Operation Walker across the southern border state. According to Mexicos Interior Secretariat, two men identified only as 22-year-old Jerson and 17-year-old Carlos spotted the group of police officers guarding the caravan and began firing at them.

Is this the first or second group???
No MS-13 members in the caravan.
I could speculate but I will wait and see.
Let’s see what happens if they fire upon an United States contingent. I bought the really large popcorn thingy at Costco ... so I is prepared!
The Mexican Army has an active duty force of 274,500 with 110,500 men and women of military service age (2015 est.).
Mexico has no major foreign nation-state adversaries.
So is it asleep?
We are putting UNARMED troops on the border. Same as last time. They put UNARMED troops in BP offices to free up active Border Patrol troops to ignore the situation.
Definitely what happens when things get out of control.
I can see Mexican & US authorities paying off the cartels to rid BOTH countries of this problem.
Of course with impunity, the cartels will turn them all into ‘mules’...
Like the LIBs say, don’t let an opportunity go unwasted.
If that clown Congressman ( I KNOW, I have to be more specific) that said the sharks were still following the trade routes of the slave ships, the unmarked graves in the desert will ensure nothing grows forever..
Just an uptake of ‘Where Bambi goes, NOTHING grows’.
This is not going to end well, I know if I ‘walked’ thousands of miles with some sort of ‘guarantee’ of getting into the US, and found out someone was lying to me, I may be ‘upset’... this will make Kent State look like a picnic....
Some of the army is tied down with cartel duties, both pro and con.

The Mexicans are escorting them, not stopping them.
They’re just good boys. Do we have their high school graduation photos yet?
After all, this is what the Left says and shows for any of their beloved criminals.
Shouldn’t be long before invaders from Central and South America do the same.
The article reads like they were firing at the caravan, not from it.
Pretty much. At least firing at these guys “escorting” the caravan. Here, let us guide you safely to the U.S.A. and Democrat $$$$.
They are in fact deploying with weapons,” U.S. Northern Command Air Force General Terrence O’Shaughnessy said during a press conference. “I think the President has made it clear that border security is national security.”
Then they will open fire on US troops too.
Facts don’t stop whiners.
One can hope.
