The migrant caravan’s invasion of the United States is underway.
Thousands of migrants appeared at the U.S.-Mexico border to demand entry into America.
But they were greeted by the one surprise they never expected.
Up to 3,000 migrants are using Tijuana, Mexico as a staging ground for invading America.
They expected to be granted safe passage.
But instead, hundreds of Mexicans are protesting the caravan’s arrival and demanding they return to their home country.
Residents of Tijuana – a city where 2,000 murders were committed this year – are afraid the caravan will bring even more death and destruction to their community.
The Associated Press reports:
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 don’t want them in Tijuana,” protesters shouted.
Juana Rodriguez, a housewife, said the government needs to conduct background checks on the migrants to make sure they don’t have criminal records.
A woman who gave her name as Paloma lambasted the migrants, who she said came to Mexico in search of handouts. “Let their government take care of them,” she told video reporters covering the protest.
The fake news media tried to frame Donald Trump and his supporters’ opposition to the caravan as a matter of racism.
But the protests in Tijuana prove this is a lie.
No country wants to absorb thousands of another nation’s poorest and most desperate people.
It is a recipe for disaster.
