Tijuana Not Welcoming Invaders Trying to Get into U.S.

Tijuana illegal immigrants and protesters.

by Daveda Gruber:

If the Migrant Caravan members try to enter America the legal way, the group is finding out that they will have to wait for up to six (6) months. They are now in Tijuana, which is close to a U.S. border crossing near San Diego. They have found out that they are not welcome.

Early Monday, U.S. Border Patrol temporarily closed all northbound lanes at the busy San Ysidro Port of Entry. The U.S. continues to position additional port hardening materials.

Sometimes lessons are not easy. There are a lot of people with no where to go. I suggest they head back south.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen tweeted:

Top U.S. officials are insisting that the migrants will not simply be allowed to enter the U.S. This means that the crowds in Tijuana that are growing by the day, may end up having to wait six months for their asylum claims to be heard.

Lenin Herrera Batres, a 20-year-old who left Honduras with his wife and 2-year-old son, asked the New York Times, “We have to wait… for how long? We don’t have the money to stay here for one month, two months.”

So where will they get money if they cross into the U.S.? From us, the taxpayers.

The Mexican people don’t seem to want these people either.

There are clashes between demonstrators with signs that read in Spanish, “No more Caravans”, and “Let’s save Tijuana, no more caravans,” and the caravan group.

The protesters do not want the presence of thousands of Central American migrants in Tijuana, Mexico.

The processing of people into the U.S. by U.S. border inspectors has begun but only about 100 asylum claims per day at Tijuana’s main crossing to San Diego.

Before the first members of the leading caravan started arriving last week, more than 3,000 names of asylum seekers are registering their names in a ragged notebook managed by the migrants themselves.

A group of about 3,400 migrants, who were last in the border city of Mexicali, should make it to Tijuana Monday. More will continue to arrive.

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastélum has referred to the arrivals as “bums”. He also questioned whether a referendum in the city of 1.6 million is needed to determine whether or not they should be allowed to stay.

Friday the Mexican Interior Ministry announced that close to 2,700 Central American migrants have applied for asylum in Mexico under a program that was launched late last month and pledged to provide them with work and living permissions faster.

Officials anticipate that the migrant caravan arrivals in Tijuana will soon expand to an excess of 10,000 people. They will need to be housed for an extended period of time. The Mexican government says it lacks the funds for this.

Was the U.S. supposed to pay?

The majority of migrants, who have been on foot for more than a month, are sleeping on a dirt baseball field. The outdoor sports complex in Tijuana is close to the newly-fortified barbed wire fence that separates Mexico from the United States.

Tijuana residents are not happy, to say the least.

On Sunday, hundreds of locals gathered around a monument in the city to protest the migrants’ arrival. The stood waving Mexican flags and chanting “Out! Out!” and “We don’t want them in Tijuana!”

The Mexican people believe that the Mexican government needs to conduct background checks on the migrants to make sure they don’t have criminal records.

“Let their government take care of them,” woman who gave her name as Paloma said.

So now Mexico has the problem. Hopefully this type of invasion will stop as word gets out that the U.S. is not letting people enter illegally. The gravy train stops here.
