I hear ya, amigos. I also wish the Mexican government would have enforced their southern border and not allowed thousands of people to spend weeks roaming through Mexico.
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 Tijuana’s 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 don’t want them in Tijuana,” protesters shouted.
The Pentagon is set to begin a drawdown of its 5,800 troops from the Southwest border as early as this week, the Army commander overseeing the mission told POLITICO today—even as the approaching caravan of refugees prompted U.S. customs officers to close a port of entry near Tijuana, Mexico.
In other words, Trump’s 200 million dollar scam of sending troops to the border in an attempt to influence the midterm failed it’s intended purpose.
Mexicans make good sense not wanting their country overrun by unchecked migrants.
They don’t want to be a migrant cesspool like Europe.
Those Tijuana residents must be some hard-core, racist, right-wing, religious fanatic, climate-change-denying, conservative hate-mongers, eh?
Help us follow the logic, Owen. Tell us how the Mexicans should’ve enforced their southern border.
You ever been to Europe?
>Help us follow the logic, Owen. Tell us how the Mexicans should’ve enforced their southern border.
My Native American buddies probably feel the same about us Europeans.
>You ever been to Europe?
Well. Using that logic, Kevin should ask if you went to church on Sunday and if you say no, then you don’t get to comment about the good Lord any more. Right, dummy?
Wrong. And I didn’t need to call you names.
I was in Europe in spring.
They have army with automatic weapons at the Eiffel Tower, central areas of London, the Colleseum, and The Louvre.
It’s mainly because of migrant problems and the violent mindset that comes along with many of the migrants.
Good for you. Travel usually helps make normal folks wiser. You, not so much.
I didn’t see any armed folks of any type in Munich, Stuttgart, or Frankfurt.
They let migrants rape women freely in Germany.
Sure they do, k. More alternative facts from the master.
Bloomberg is”alternate facts”?
Did you notice that it isn’t Bloomberg’s story, but an opinion piece ? Don’t you even try?
That does not invalidate the facts listed.
So you stand for unfettered migrant rape?
Germany has a big problem with it.
Nope, not in favor of rape, nor of opinion posed as fact.
So when a women gives a tearful account of being gang raped by migrants and authorities refuse to arrest the perpetrators simply because they are migrants…that is just “opinion” to you?
Awful. Just awful.
Well, since you provided no facts to back up your claim I’ll will defer until you do so.
Strange that you would use that description, seeing as how the newest member of the SC fits the same type. Sooooo many hypocrites, soooo little time.
Nort confuses himself: “Nope, not in favor of… opinion posed as fact.”
Speaking of posers… And here you are, continuinuing to spew fact-less opinion all over this board. False windmill economics, made up district LED savings, and ignorantly opining state permits have no mandates, to name just a few.
Oh Great Elected Official, heal thyself.
I provided more fact in each of those examples than k ever has in total with all his outrageous claims. But you are too lazy and biased to see it.
Have a great Thanksgiving.
I can post facts all day long. The “fact” problem is: you do not take migrant rape seriously. That is awful. Just awful.
“I can post facts all day long”.
Congratulations ! Great policy change, and a real break from your past practices. There is hope for you yet !!
What a miserable and worthless piece of shit you have to be to sit here on a holiday and continue to bully and harass another poster.
The sooner your trash family shoves your trash ass in the nursing home, the better. You’re a scumbag, Nord. Die soon, old man.
You threatening me again, little paulie? You are really a tough guy in your head, but I learned long ago that the loudest, toughest talkers were really the biggest cowards.
FYI, the holiday was yesterday.
I always deal in facts.
The real issue is: there are many facts you do not wish to process.
I cannot fix that.
Oh, Prince of Irony!
Nort lies s’more: I provided more fact in each of those examples…
1) False windmill economics
You posted a link which contained convoluted and already-known false info. When called on to explain your ignorance, you merely slinked away.
2) made up district LED savings
You claimed your school district was saving “thousands” after it spending untold amounts on an LED lighting retrofit project. When asked to supply specifics you merely replied “saving thousands and thousands”, refused to document said savings/costs, and slinked away.
3) ignorantly opining state WPDES permits have no mandates (while stating “That is all a product of [Kevin’s] imagination.”)
Are you denying that you wrote, “Sorry k, but there are no ‘mandates’ in a WPDES permit.” ? When Mark H. kicked your ass on that one – with a simple link to an actual state WPDES permit – you merely tried to change the subject and slinked away, still muttering about Kevin not supplying facts.
And I’ll add two more just for grins:
4) “CWD spreading across the state, no plan or response” -Nort
All Jason had to do to prove your ‘opinion, not fact’ idiocy was go to the DNR web site and find the DNR CDW Response Plan…. which has been in effect since 2010.
5) “Looks like it was Vos, not 1 million residents, that wanted it cut.” – Nort, regarding the Marquette-zoo I-94 project.
A project that had been in the works since the latter part of the Thompson administration. Took me all of 30 seconds to expose that lie.
And all this in just the last month.
Your own words describe yourself perfectly: ” Sooooo many hypocrites, soooo little time.”
A very hearty congratulations on that excellent post by MJM.
Nord does everything he accuses others of, but no one has been as eloquent at nailing him with his own words through the lens he demands others live by.
It took a lot of research to sort through all that liberal tripe. Wow. Well done.
I’ve said it many times, LeRoy is a turd.
