TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) Hundreds of Tijuana residents congregated around a monument in an affluent section of the city south of California on Sunday to protest the thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived via caravan in hopes of a new life in the U.S.
Tensions have built as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road, and with many more months ahead of them while they seek asylum. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000.
U.S. border inspectors are processing only about 100 asylum claims a day at Tijuanas main crossing to San Diego. Asylum seekers register their names in a tattered notebook managed by migrants themselves that had more than 3,000 names even before the caravan arrived.
On Sunday, displeased Tijuana residents waved Mexican flags, sang the Mexican national anthem and chanted Out! Out! in front of a statue of the Aztec ruler Cuauhtemoc, 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from the U.S. border. They accused the migrants of being messy, ungrateful and a danger to Tijuana. They also complained about how the caravan forced its way into Mexico, calling it an invasion. And they voiced worries that their taxes might be spent to care for the group.
We dont want them in Tijuana, protesters shouted.

The Press would ridicule us for doing the same. Shame on the Press!
‘White guilt’ among liberals is powerful. Mexicans don’t have to deal with that crap, so they just call them the parasites they are.
The Mexicans are calling the illegal alien so called caravan an invasion !!!
Hundreds of Tijuana residents congregated around a monument in an affluent section of the cityWhere they won't get their hands and heads chopped off.
AND it will happen once again, our government will betray us and do it.....hide and watch.
As for me and some like minded patriots we will once again use our cash, time and equipment to visit the Rio Norte to do what we can do. Getting long in the tooth but ready to go.
Sad, but the Dems won’t see this
for what it is. I would love to
see Smuckey Schroomer defend this one.
The Mexicans are pissed because some
dare to invade their country....
Our citizens don’t have the balls.
Best President ever. By closing the border and forcing the asylum seekers, (and the NGO’s), to apply at the port of entry he has slowed the process. This has forced the asylum seekers to stay in the border towns for an extended length of time and compete with the locals for food, lodging space, health care and funds used for the poor in the local community. Up to now they were only in town for a short period of time so it was no problem. Now they have to absorb these “invaders” and their taxes are paying for the freeloaders.
Does this protest prove to Liberals that the caravan is really being persecuted and deserving of asylum? A good MSM spin doctor could pull this off, IMHO
They could make Tijuana their own new country and name it Palestino.
“We dont want them in Tijuana, protesters shouted.”
Fine, we don’t want them in the United States! So show them where the back door to Tijuana is. Their “exit strategy” should be to go back to where they came from!
Those intolerant racists!! Oh, wait ...
Maybe they could crowd fund a few cartel enforcers to take care of this problem for them.
I’ve got one thing to say to these freeloading, border jumpers. It isn’t up to their dumb asses to decide whether they are invaders or “migrants”. That’s OUR decision, ***holes!
great strategy-now improve on it. Do the government shutdown which would restrict services for asylum claims. Noone at the office until...
