Members Of Central American Caravan Scaling Border Wall And Heading Toward Showdown

Published

on

More than 400 refugees in a caravan from Central America that has moved across Mexico have hit the border wall in Tijuana and want asylum in the US. Unfortunately, the crossing reached capacity immediately.

These illegal aliens have climbed the border fence and are taunting US officials while shouting “Gracias, Mexico!” Some are crossing over illegally. Many, in reference to former president Barack Obama, chanted “Si Se Puede!” (Yes We Can!) from atop the fence.

The group originally consisted of over 1,500 refugees. Some turned back, but a number of groups broke off to come into the US under the cover of dark at other entry points. They are from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. Pro-immigration groups have dispatched lawyers to Tijuana to help instruct the refugees how to get into the country. President Trump has ordered that they not be allowed in. “I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country,” Trump tweeted Monday morning. “It’s a disgrace. We are the only Country in the World so Naive! WALL.”

Mexico allowed the invading force to proceed unimpeded through their country and to the border, which won them gratitude from the illegal immigrants. Arizona Republic reporter Daniel Gonzalez said the border is at “capacity.” A showdown is coming over this and it is hard to tell exactly what will happen next.

“A pregnant woman and some children as young as 4 were detected entering the US through a canyon,” the Los Angeles Times reported. It is a dark, dangerous canyon notorious for human and drug smuggling. They reportedly climbed over a broken-down scrap metal border fence near the San Ysidro Port of Entry, a land border crossing between San Diego and Tijuana. In a statement, the US Customs and Border Protection did not say those who entered illegally were part of the caravan, only that they were “people associated with” the caravan. It’s unclear what that meant.

According to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the caravan is “a deliberate attempt to undermine our laws and overwhelm our system.” He pledged to send more immigration judges to the border, if necessary, Fox News reported. “Individuals of the ‘caravan’ seeking asylum or other similar claims should seek protections in the first safe country they enter, including Mexico,” Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott said in a Customs and Border Protection statement. “To anyone that is associated with this caravan, think before you act,” Scott added. “If anyone has encouraged you to illegally enter the United States, or make any false statements to U.S. government officials, they are giving you bad advice and they are placing you and your family at risk.”

Pete Flores, the Customs and Border Protection director of field operations in San Diego, stated that pedestrians at the San Ysidro Port of Entry will be divided into two lines — those with, and without, travel documents for legal entry. If the facility becomes overcrowded with those who have no entry documents, they may need to wait in Mexico, Flores said. “All travelers will be processed in accordance with appropriate detention and removal enforcement protocols.” Frankly, none of this should be allowed. They should be repelled at the border. Where is the National Guard and why is ICE allowing this?

Five busloads of migrants were escorted through Tijuana to a cross-border rally near San Diego, where supporters gathered on both sides of the fence, The Associated Press reports. Images from the rally show apparent migrants from the Mexican side sitting atop the border wall proudly waving what appears to be the Honduran flag, the banner of the country from which many of the migrants are trying to flee. A number of them got married at the border when they found they would be separated when entering the US.

“The only thing I would tell Mr. Trump is to have a conscious and to look at all the people and the way they suffer. Because the people, they are coming from those countries, they are not doing it for pleasure,” Osman Salvador Ulla Castro, who is from Honduras, told Fox News. “They face danger and extortions and they are looking for a better life.” They could live in Mexico or other countries… this is nothing short of an invading force being let into the US.
