    The Invasion

    The Invasion
    "The Invaders" - that is what the citizens of the city of Tijuana, Mexico are calling the 'caravaners' coming up from Honduras. Many holding signs that say, "Donald Trump was right!"

    Tijuana – Donald Trump Was Right!!!, 2449
    (Nov 20, 2018)

    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAAGeAr7EYA

    Description:

    Well, guess what, just as we predicted a month ago, the so-called caravan didn’t walk all the way to Tijuana, Mexico. Somebody paid for busses to take them all the way. President stopped them from entering by Executive order, so now a liberal judge has ordered him to stop doing that – essentially opening the borders. Well, lemme tell you, that has caused such a clog of caravaners crammed into an already crammed Tijuana, Mexico that the townspeople marched on the invaders and called them just that – invaders.

    lol...you know what OSHO says don't you? The thing about mental and maturity age? Perhaps, it's time for a little agonizing reappraisal. We know Trump is a pathetic and very disturbed thing...Propaganda needs to be sourced elsewhere to at least inspire outrage.

    It is disappointing however, that even a small percentage of Mexican citizens are as lacking in humanity, education, and intelligence as many in the United States. I think I know at least one of them that might have been out holding signs. I think you might like him Turiya...he's spiritually clueless, narcissistic, and just generally a sad human being (but according to his self-assessment amazingly enlightened). We know they exist, but given that their innate approach to survival is self-immolating likely not for long.

    Tijuana protesters chant 'Out!'
    3 days ago...

    Tijuana protesters chant 'Out!' at migrants camped in city


    Anti-immigrant protesters march towards an immigrant shelter on November 18, 2018 in Tijuana, Mexico. Several hundred Mexican demonstrators marched, demanding members of the migrant caravan leave the country.

    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.

    2 days ago....


    Officials from the Tijuana border city of Mexico have said they have arrested 34 migrants from a large colony of Central American migrants traveling through Mexico.

    Migrants have been arrested for drug possession, public drinking, disturbance of peace and police interference, said Reuters, adding that they would be deported to their countries of origin.

    In the main refugee column, there are currently between 4,000 and 6,000 migrants.

    'This is not racism'
    3 days ago...


    TIJUANA, Mexico — Hundreds of Tijuana residents, opposed to what they described as the "chaos" of the Central American migrant caravan, gathered at a prominent roundabout in Tijuana Sunday morning, before marching to a large, temporary shelter, which now holds about 2,400 migrants.

    They chanted "Mexico! Mexico!" and "yes to migrants, no to invaders!" They sang the national anthem and waved Mexican flags and banners and signs, with messages urging the migrants to go home and urging the government to take action.

    Tijuana resident Guadalupe Barrera said the protesters oppose how the migrants entered the county. She held a sign that read in Spanish "no more caravans."

    Trump Quotes Tijuana Mayor to Argue
    Against Accepting Asylum-Seekers



    Migrants rest inside a temporary migrant shelter next to the U.S.-Mexico border on November 17, 2018 in Tijuana, Mexico. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)

    Tijuana’s Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum has made a number of public statements since the caravan arrived in the border town. He called the influx of people an “avalanche” and said the city is “ill-prepared” to handle the situation. It is estimated migrants could be in town in Tijuana for as long as six months or more as they attempt to gain asylum in the United States.

    Puro Tijuana - do'h! Signs are written in Spanish...
    2 days ago...


    As I mentioned previously, the mud wars are coming. Someone should think about how to televise this. Camera drones or something.

    Hundreds of people fleeing violence from Central America were hit with punches, stones, and coffee. Far from being the danger, police are protecting them from what’s outside.





    “There is no food, no toilet paper, no water, no blankets. We’ve had to go out in the street and rely on good samaritans for help.” — Gladys Cardoza, from Honduras

    On Sunday, anti-caravan protesters clashed with riot police near the shelter, vowing to “sacar los migrantes de allí” (“get the migrants out of there”). Migrants at the shelter were kept on lockdown for hours while protesters overturned concrete barriers put in place for crowd control and threw plastic bottles and trash at a helmeted line of police with riot shields.

    Protesters decried the migrants as “invaders” and “ingrates.” Behind the police lines, migrants were restricted from leaving the shelter. Dozens of them huddled inside a fence.


    “Invasion disguised as immigration. I respect your human rights, you respect my country’s sovereignty.”

    German News... Where's the American Main Stream Media???
    3 Days ago...


    Tijuana (dpa) - Hunderte Menschen haben am Wochenende in der mexikanischen Grenzstadt Tijuana gegen den Zustrom von immer mehr Migranten aus Mittelamerika protestiert. Sie schwenkten mexikanische Flaggen und zeigten Transparente mit der Aufschrift «Nicht noch mehr Karawanen».

    Die Demonstrantin Celia Oaxaca forderte: «Raus mit den Invasoren» und fügte hinzu: «Später stellt sich heraus, dass das Mörder sind. Es sind keine guten Leute. Und hier sind schon genug Menschen.»

    Rund 2500 Menschen aus Honduras, El Salvador und Guatemala kampieren derzeit in einer Sportanlage, weitere 3000 Migranten wurden in den kommenden Tagen erwartet. Die Mittelamerikaner sind seit rund einem Monat auf dem Weg in die USA. Viele wollen dort Asyl beantragen.

    Am frühen Montagmorgen (Ortszeit) sperrte der US-Grenzschutz wegen Bauarbeiten vorübergehend den Grenzübergang San Ysidro. Für Fußgänger blieb er allerdings teilweise geöffnet. San Ysidro zwischen Tijuana und San Diego ist der meistfrequentierte Grenzübergang der westlichen Hemisphäre. Pro Tag reisen dort durchschnittlich 70.000 Menschen in Fahrzeugen und weitere 20.000 Fußgänger in die USA ein.

    Die Menschen aus Mittelamerika fliehen vor der bitteren Armut und der Gewalt durch Jugendbanden in ihrer Heimat. Die sogenannten Maras erpressen Schutzgeld, kontrollieren ganze Stadtviertel und zwangsrekrutieren Jugendliche. Honduras und El Salvador gehören zu den gefährlichsten Ländern der Welt.

    US-Präsident Donald Trump hatte zuletzt immer wieder betont, die Migranten nicht ins Land zu lassen. Er sprach von einer «Invasion» und ließ rund 5600 Soldaten an die Grenze verlegen, um die Menschen zu stoppen. Insgesamt sind über 8000 Migranten in verschiedenen Gruppen auf dem Weg in die USA.

    Recent Trump tweets regarding the border situation...



    The Fake News is showing old footage of people climbing over our Ocean Area Fence. This is what it really looks like - no climbers anymore under our Administration!



    11:10 AM - 19 Nov 2018




    Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have “Obama judges,” and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country. It would be great if the 9th Circuit was indeed an “independent judiciary,” but if it is why......

    12:51 PM - 21 Nov 2018




    .....are so many opposing view (on Border and Safety) cases filed there, and why are a vast number of those cases overturned. Please study the numbers, they are shocking. We need protection and security - these rulings are making our country unsafe! Very dangerous and unwise!

    1:09 PM - 21 Nov 2018




    “Thank you to President Trump on the Border. No American President has ever done this before.” Hector Garza, National Border Patrol Council

    1:31 PM - 21 Nov 2018




    There are a lot of CRIMINALS in the Caravan. We will stop them. Catch and Detain! Judicial Activism, by people who know nothing about security and the safety of our citizens, is putting our country in great danger. Not good!

    1:42 PM - 21 Nov 2018




    ....and Safety at the Border, or anywhere else. They know nothing about it and are making our Country unsafe. Our great Law Enforcement professionals MUST BE ALLOWED TO DO THEIR JOB! If not there will be only bedlam, chaos, injury and death. We want the Constitution as written!

    4:30 AM - 22 Nov 2018




    Justice Roberts can say what he wants, but the 9th Circuit is a complete & total disaster. It is out of control, has a horrible reputation, is overturned more than any Circuit in the Country, 79%, & is used to get an almost guaranteed result. Judges must not Legislate Security...

    4:21 AM - 22 Nov 2018




    Our highly trained security professionals are not allowed to do their job on the Border because of the Judicial Activism and Interference by the 9th Circuit. Nevertheless, they are working hard to make America a safer place, though hard to do when anybody filing a lawsuit wins!

    There is a slippery slope here and it's a dangerous one. We can start calling any immigrant group we like an 'invasion'.

    Invasion can be used as an excuse to wage war and worse.

    If we start to be so careless with the use of words which are just lies anyway we have no morals and no standards. That's where we lose our freedom.

    I think some folks should give Mr. Passio a listen.

    If the migrants were armed and taking land by force, then it would justifiably be called an invasion. Since they're unarmed and not actually kicking anyone off their lands, it is just fearmongering, pure and simple. Nobody's life will be negatively impacted by this migrant caravan and that's just a fact. I honestly think this fear of Native American migration (because that's what it mostly is) is just classical projection. White settlers in North America know full well how they treated the Indians in the past, so they're projecting that into their fears of the very same people they dispossessed coming back and retaking the land that used to belong to their kind.

    "Invasion" is meant to trigger people. And it does. Sadly, the more people are triggered and put into fearful mindsets, the more often and easier that happens.

    This is why we're supposed to be able to rely on our President to unify us, reassure us, comfort us.

    Trump doesn't care for that duty and appears unable to execute it. He has to read from a teleprompter for that sort of thing and it sounds forced. Because it is.
