The Mexicans don't want the thousands of migrants in their country, who are reaching Tijuana.

Well, maybe they get some understanding now of what is it like to have unwanted immigrants.

    I remember hearing countless arguments from fellow Gulchers about how we are denying immigrants' "right to travel". The problem is that immigrants who will violate laws restricting them to certain ports of entry and a reasonable background check will violate countless other laws, too. Immigrants who respect the rule of reasonable laws are worth admitting ... more expeditiously than they currently are, but the force used by those who break down gates like those crossing from Guatemala into Mexico like an invading horde should not be respected.

    May I and por favor would go a long way.

    Me dino heard on Hanniy's radio show today that trucks and trucks and trucks laden with
    food, medical supplies and assorted other gear is what is keeping these caravans sustained.
    Now who oh who oh who would be up to funding such an attack on America?
    It sure isn't Honduras. Honduras does not even have the money.
    Hmm, hmm, hmm! Inquiring minds would like to know.

      Imagine if who ever is feeding these people suddenly stopped.
      Imagine 10,000+ people thinking they’re entitled to these constant trucks full of supplies, suddenly stopped getting them.
      Imagine if that is part of the overall scheme.
      It’s easy if you try.

        Interesting theory. I also heard on the radio that the women and children of the caravan are being marched up front for show.
        The caravan is actually composed of mostly young men of military age and it's now estimated 500 known criminals have slipped in among them.
        They are now at the border where the people of Tijuana don't even like them.
        Then their food is cut off? Well, they sure can't just walk back to Honduras with empty stomachs.
        Why am me dino thinking of poking fire at a powder keg?

    The article was posted by the WSJ as well but taken down in record short time.

    They don't want to be caught in the migrant-hugging left's crossfire.

    Anti-Trump articles stay on for days/weeks.

    Mexico has much more stringent immigration laws than stupid USA does. They turn away almost ALL of the asylum requests. They dont do catch and release- its more like catch and you better leave on your own.....

      Yes, true.

      I watched a reporter the other day (with a Spanish accent) interviewed by Tucker, saying:

      1) There is no "evidence" that the caravan was organized (he is also ignorant in addition to being biased: google who started it by his own admission);

      2) He stated that Mexicans were racists; the old lefty mantra, never mind that Mexicans and Central Americans are the same race);

      3) Now that the San Francisco judge blocked ANY rules by which the migrants should abide by, there will be thousands coming across the border.

        There will be probably 20,000 coming across, each getting $2k per month "re-settlement" money that we will pay for, plus any other welfare benefits they can get.

        Even though they would work for less, I refuse to hire any of these people. They can starve up here for all I care. Maybe better they stay in california and bankrupt that state. I dont want any in Nevada, or federal funds to feed them.

    The whole thing is a scam. America is experiencing a slow burn civil war and the media is a big propaganda tool. Not to be misled, the soft war is being directed and funded by foreign as well as domestic interests. Some are Chinese, Middle Eastern, and some wealthy individuals with their own agenda.

    An Obama appointed judge of the 9th Circuit in San Francisco blocked president Trump's order not to let the migrants enter illegally.

    It'll go to the Supreme Court which must set this issue straight.

    Hypocrites, they have no issue coming across our border illegally.

      Methinks the Mexicans, at least the ones in Tijuana, are looking out for #1 just like we're supposed to do in our own country.
      Just ask Trump.

        It's what the media and liberals in general don't get. Mexicans are not liberal. Most are hard working family people. However the tyranny of governments and consequent national poverty has bred a vicious third world environment that at this point is a quasi government of it's own. "Build The Wall."

          According to this article in my email today, this year Mexico has deported twice as many illegal Central Americans than the USA has.
          Evidently, they back off from these caravans, though. One forced their way into Mexico by injuring police. And then they marched on.

            This could be supported by Cartel to get a more a open crossing and to get distributors into USA. The Mexican Government will not cross the Drug Cartels.

              Yes, that could very well be. Now I'm thinking about one of my favorite TV shows, The Queen Of The South about Mexican cartel gangsters that shows a new series of episodes during the Summer. That future queen is always in some serious trouble.

          It doesn't matter whether Mexicans migrants identify themselves as "liberals"; they come from an environment with widespread primitive beliefs contrary to the intellectual achievements of reason and rational egoism. Many of them are willing to work hard, but see no distinction between that government subsidies as part of the package.

          With little understanding of rights of the individual, including private property rights, and the purpose of law to protect them, they have every incentive to support welfare statism and to engage in anarchic behavior towards individuals.

          In small numbers a civilized society can tolerate such immigrants as long as they are willing to be educated and as long as criminals are kept out. But hordes of illiterates illegally coming into a welfare state by invitation of socialists is a deadly combination.

          "Build the wall" is inadequate; it has become a metaphor for goals not supported by our own government, let alone the leftist mob and its intellectual supporters. They who would not enforce a physical wall, turning it into a one-way gate keeping people in who in the future want to escape.

        Sure they are, unless they want to come in. The pinch they feel is the enhanced scrutiny and the decreasing ability to come and go as they choose to. The Hondurans are ruining their BBQ.

    I didn't see 'countless' arguments from fellow Gulchers about how we are denying 'immigrants' a right to travel. I may have seen a few remarks about persons considering invading our country by illegally crossing our Borders.

    Based on my last trip to Tijuana, it is not a big city. Other than the small tourist area it is mostly residential. Three or ten thousand influx of caravans would put a great strain on them and deny intended projects to their citizens. I'd be pissed off, if I were them.
