If there’s one good consequence to the caravan, it’s that the media was finally forced to cover how Mexicans actually feel about illegal aliens.
Shouting ‘Mexico First,’ Hundreds In Tijuana March Against Migrant Caravan – NPR
The message for the migrant caravan was clear from marchers on Sunday in Tijuana, Mexico: We don’t want you here.
“We want the caravan to go; they are invading us,” said Patricia Reyes, a 62-year-old protester, hiding from the sun under an umbrella. “They should have come into Mexico correctly, legally, but they came in like animals.”
Demonstrators held signs reading “No illegals,” “No to the invasion” and “Mexico First.” Many wore the country’s red, white and green national soccer jersey and vigorously waved Mexican flags. The crowd often slipped into chants of “Ti-jua-na!” and “Me-xi-co!” They sang the national anthem several times.
“Tijuana is a place that welcomes anyone, but you must have papers, you must identify yourself,” demonstrator Magdalena Baltazar said on Sunday, as she waved a Mexican flag and marched through the city. “We work hard here. We don’t get handouts. The government shouldn’t be giving things to migrants when plenty of Mexicans are in a difficult position.”
Most of the protesters said the migrants should be detained and deported.
All of this is deeply confusing to good white lefties who were taught that opposition to illegal migration is only due to white supremacy.
And yes, there are Make Tijuana Great Again hats in the mix.
Some protesters said the Mexican government should follow President Donald Trump’s lead and adopt tougher border policies.
“He’s defending his border, unlike our president,” said protester Elvia Vijeras. “Now there will be more violence in Tijuana.”
Francis Belmontes, who brought his two children to the protest, said his seven-year-old daughter told him that some of the migrants were urinating outside of her school and asking for money.
He said not all the migrants were mothers seeking a better life for their children, and he had seen young men with tattoos who he believed were gang members. He said he worried for his children’s safety.
“It’s chaos,” he said. “We’re sounding like Trump’s America here in Mexico.”
This is only confusing to white lefties with no clue about the rest of the world. It’s actually a pretty typical reaction to migrants.
Venezuelan refugees have been attacked in border countries. African migrants making their way to Europe have been attacked in Muslim countries along the way.
No one wants migrants in their country except the wealthy lefties who don’t have to be around them.
