Skip to comments.'Tijuana first!': protests grow against migrant caravan in Mexico

Tensions have risen in Tijuana as members of the Central American migrant caravan continue to arrive at the Mexican border city, while US troops continue to tighten security along the frontier.
On Sunday, anti-caravan protesters chanted: Out Hondurans, we dont want you here, Tijuana first and Long live Mexico, and waved Mexican flags and signs reading no to the invasion and no more migrants.
The group, which at its height numbered about 300, gathered in front of a statue of the Aztec warrior Cuauhtémoc before making their way to a sports complex serving as a temporary shelter to about 2,500 migrants from the caravan.
When they reached the shelter, they were met by a line of riot police. The standoff lasted several hours, with the crowd throwing water and beer cans at officers before eventually dissipating.
While many have welcomed the migrants as they have the thousands of others who have come to the city over recent years some Tijuana residents have expressed hostility to the caravan, amid intense media coverage and aggressive rhetoric from the US president, Donald Trump.
At the sports complex, the protests were met with a mix of fear and resignation.
Im not afraid of them, this is just racism, said Alonzo Castillo, 37, a construction worker from Honduras.
Others were more fearful. The protest came just days after anti-immigrant protesters harassed, threatened, and hurled rocks at a group of about 100 migrants who were sleeping by the beach.

“Tijuana first!” Absolutely. For Tijuanans (or whatever they call themselves). But it’s fascist to say “America first!”? BS.
The globalists are using these human waves as 21’st century biological warfare.
Mexicans must urge their leaders to build “El Muro”, at the border with Guatemala.
"Anybody want to chip in for a wall?"
Hmm...so non-Gringos are racist against each other?
Hollywood, one hundred or so miles north, would never believe it.
WOW I never thought Id see the day..that these people have more balls than the Democrat Party..Good for them!!
Hey, TJ was a cool place to visit before. It was tourist friendly, fun and festive. I used to drive my own car there and not even worry about insurance. Ensenada too. Great place to visit. It can be great again, but the Mexican people have to decide if they want their country to become an s-hole.
Humans have resisted invasions since the days of cave men. Such is the case in Tijuana today.
It must stop.
Build The Wall. Stop all Benefits. eVerify everyone. End Birth Right Citizenship. You know the rest. It’s natures law. Enforce it.
The Mexican people need to start a Take Our Country Back movement.
They could be a formidable force if they united with all the strong young men that invaded the USA
Millions of them
They should use the money they usually send back home to gather together and march on the corrupt millionaires/billionaires that have been screwing them over for years
Mexico has massive reserves of natural resources but the Powers That Be do not manage them right
Just enough to keep them as the masters and the rest of the population peons to serve them.
(Is this invasion of Mexico reaping what was sown?)
If Mexico provided transportation and food etc for the caravan to travel north, they should be able to do it to take them south.
Oh right Soros/Clinton won’t finance that plan
It’s nice to see President Trump’s plan working so well.
The USA Media Democrat Cartel is having fits.
Their new voters are stuck in Mexico!
Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. The Mexican non-Gringos are descended from Africans, Spaniards and Aztecs mixing it up. The Central American non-Gringos are descended from Africans, Spaniards and Mayans mixing it up. There is a racial difference, except on DNA tests, because their DNA can be confused with Cherokee DNA, which the Cherokees won’t provide. But still, Aztecs are Aztecs and Mayans are Mayans. So there are racial differences, ergo, there is racism. Shout it from the three chambers of commerce, I mean Congress. Mexicans are racists!
Obama already did. But it didn’t keep out the Mayan invaders.
Maybe the Mexicans can contract the cartels to herd the caravans southward. “Head-um up! Move-um south! Double time! Ho!!!
Decades ago there was a documentary talking about how Hitler was able to round up Jews in Poland and put them on trains.
He told them that they were going to be relocated to The Ukraine. The person writing about this piece of the story noted that things had to be pretty horrific in Poland for the Jews to want to go to the dump called the Soviet Union.
Seems similar here. If MEXICANS cannot tolerate these goons from Central America...then we’re talking about one HORRIFIC bunch of people trying to force their way into this country.
