Migrant Invaders Just Proved Trump Right – Dems DIDN’T Need This 11 Days Before Midterms!

Published

Bring the United States Military to our border and stop this invasion!

From The Daily Wire:

Over the weekend, a mass caravan of some 7,000 prospective illegal immigrants, mostly from Honduras, made their way to the United States through Mexico. According to The Daily Mail (UK), the line stretched for a mile, with people walking 10 abreast. Mexican authorities attempted to limit the number of migrants crossing the border with Mexico, but migrants simply swam across the river illegally.

Hundreds of those migrants had sought refugee status in Mexico, but that didn’t stop far more from entering Mexico without permission. The Mexican government has pledged to stop the caravan from reaching the American border, but so far, the caravan has proceeded unmolested.

This prompted a spate of tweeting from President Trump:

Now, many of those moving toward the US are looking for work and a better way of life. As The Daily Mail (UK) reported:

Olivin Castellanos, 58, a truck driver and mason from Villanueva, Honduras, said he took a raft across the river after Mexico blocked the bridge. ‘No one will stop us, only God,’ he said. ‘We knocked down the door and we continue walking.’ He wants to reach the U.S. to work. ‘I can do this,’ he said, pointing to the asphalt under his feet. ‘I’ve made highways.’

Some of those in the caravan have previously been deported from the United States:

Nearby, Julio Asturias, 27, a migrant from San Juan, El Salvador, charged his cellphone from a dangling wire.

“I want to return to Arizona, and when I heard that the caravan was passing, I joined it,” he said, adding that he was deported a couple of months ago after being pulled over for a burned-out tail light.

But just because there are millions of people across the world who would love to enter the United States for purposes of finding work does not mean that the United States has either the resources or the responsibility to open its borders to all comers. As a libertarian on the flow of labor, I have no problem with people coming to the United States to work – but there are obvious economic costs associated with unchecked illegal immigration in a welfare state. Furthermore, the failure of the United States to assimilate new immigrants has increased radically in recent years with the rise of a multicultural ethos on the political Left. To suggest that the United States leave its borders wide open to anyone wanting to enter is to suggest national suicide, as it would be for any nation.

It’s also not clear who all the migrants are. Pictures have emerged of members of the caravan carrying the Honduran flag, for example – an odd choice for people fleeing the situation in Honduras.

If you’re leading a march of economic migrants, not an invasion of citizens of a foreign state, why carry the flag of the nation you are escaping, exactly?

What’s the solution to illegal immigration? More ease in legal immigration would be useful; so would serious governmental attempts to ensure that those entering the United States cannot access the social safety net built for and paid for by American citizens. But in the end, the key to any successful immigration wave is an American program of cultural assimilation, rather than an attempt to suggest that such assimilation represents cultural xenophobia. Immigrants who want to leave behind the failed policies of their homelands often make incredible American citizens; the most obvious examples include but are certainly not restricted to the Soviet and Cuban refugee populations. But that doesn’t mean they always do. That’s why we have to check who is coming into the country, and we have to insist that our incentive system is structured properly to draw the best immigrants rather than simply assuming that everyone who enters the United States enriches the country equally.

And what is the solution to waves of migrants seeking entry to the United States? In the end, regime change in failing countries. That doesn’t mean American military involvement. It means incentivizing and supporting movements in countries like Honduras determined to bring democracy, rule of law, and property rights to bear. So long as failing states continue to maintain power on our southern border, such caravans will continue.

Whoopi Starts Screaming At Trump Says He Needs To “Shut Up” – TOO BAD!

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Breitbart News

Monday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg criticized President Donald Trump for his comments about the California wildfires.

In a video clip from his California weekend visit, Trump said, “I was with the president of Finland and he said we’re a forest nation. He called it a forest nation. And they spend a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things and they don’t have any problem and when it is, it’s a very small problem.”

Goldberg said, “Actually, as you probably know, Finland has a very different atmosphere. They get rain periodically. California, it doesn’t rain much so raking really isn’t going to help. You know, just being realistic. And the Finnish president said he never suggested raking, you know. I don’t know why the new guy just won’t acknowledge that if you don’t have any rain, raking everything out is fine but if everything’s is dry someone drops a cigarette or someone lights the fire or, you know, some spark happens, stuff’s going to burn. Raking it is not going to really help. So I would like him to stop with this raking stuff.”

Co-host Joy Behar said, “When did he become an expert on forest fires? Who is he, Smokey the Bear all of a sudden?”

Co-host Sunny Hostin said, “It’s amazing, I have some really good friends that are from Finland and the Fins are having such a ball with this. There are memes online with them vacuuming the forest. My friend is sending me all this stuff but in a sense, we’ve almost become the laughing stock in so many places.”

She added, “And it’s just so embarrassing because if you know anything about Finland, it rains like half the year. It’s really cold.”

Goldberg said, “What I need him to do is shut up. And I try not to be, you know, I try not to be too rude, but you know what, people lost their lives. Families lost their homes. This is not a joke. Raking? I’m sorry. Raking is not funny to people in California. This is not cute, you know, this idea. And if you don’t know this, if you really don’t know this, man, everybody needs to start rethinking what you’re saying and how you’re saying it because you sure don’t give a damn about the people in California.”

She added, “I just want him to stop talking in California. People are dying. People died. People lost everything. Listen, if you’re not going to help stay home.”

Tijuana Protesters Chant ‘Out!’ At Migrants Camped in City

Published

* By

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 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.

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.

A block away, fewer than a dozen Tijuana residents stood with signs of support for the migrants. Keyla Zamarron, a 38-year-old teacher, said the protesters don’t represent her way of thinking as she held a sign saying: Childhood has no borders.

Most of the migrants who have reached Tijuana via caravan in recent days set out more than a month ago from Honduras, a country of 9 million people. Dozens of migrants in the caravan who have been interviewed by Associated Press reporters have said they left their country after death threats.

But the journey has been hard, and many have turned around.

Alden Rivera, the Honduran ambassador in Mexico, told the AP on Saturday that 1,800 Hondurans have returned to their country since the caravan first set out on Oct. 13, and that he hopes more will make that decision. “We want them to return to Honduras,” said Rivera.

Honduras has a murder rate of 43 per 100,000 residents, similar to U.S. cities like New Orleans and Detroit. In addition to violence, migrants in the caravan have mentioned poor economic prospects as a motivator for their departures. Per capita income hovers around $120 a month in Honduras, where the World Bank says two out of three people live in poverty.

The migrants’ expected long stay in Tijuana has raised concerns about the ability of the border city of more than 1.6 million people to handle the influx.

While many in Tijuana are sympathetic to the migrants’ plight and trying to assist, some locals have shouted insults, hurled rocks and even thrown punches at them. The cold reception contrasts sharply with the warmth that accompanied the migrants in southern Mexico, where residents of small towns greeted them with hot food, campsites and even live music.

Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum has called the migrants’ arrival an “avalanche” that the city is ill-prepared to handle, calculating that they will be in Tijuana for at least six months as they wait to file asylum claims. Gastelum has appealed to the federal government for more assistance to cope with the influx.

Mexico’s Interior Ministry said Saturday that the federal government was flying in food and blankets for the migrants in Tijuana.

Tijuana officials converted a municipal gymnasium and recreational complex into a shelter to keep migrants out of public spaces. The city’s privately run shelters have a maximum capacity of 700. The municipal complex can hold up to 3,000.

At the municipal shelter, Josue Caseres, 24, expressed dismay at the protests against the caravan. “We are fleeing violence,” said the entertainer from Santa Barbara, Honduras. “How can they think we are going to come here to be violent?”

Some from the caravan have diverted to other border cities, such as Mexicali, a few hours to the east of Tijuana.

Elsewhere on Sunday, a group of 200 migrants headed north from El Salvador, determined to also find safety in numbers to reach the U.S. Edwin Alexander Gomez, 20, told AP in San Salvador that he wants to work construction in New York, where he hears the wages are better and the city is safer.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who sought to make the caravan a campaign issue in the midterm elections, used Twitter on Sunday to voice support for the mayor of Tijuana and try to discourage the migrants from seeking entry to the U.S.

Trump wrote that like Tijuana, “the U.S. is ill-prepared for this invasion, and will not stand for it. They are causing crime and big problems in Mexico. Go home!”

He followed that tweet by writing: “Catch and Release is an obsolete term. It is now Catch and Detain. Illegal Immigrants trying to come into the U.S.A., often proudly flying the flag of their nation as they ask for U.S. Asylum, will be detained or turned away.”
