As President Trump said: ”Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries. Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!”
They won’t apply for asylum because it takes too long & they don’t want to wait. Well that’s just too damn bad!
“Migrants in the Central American caravan heading towards the US border are planning to wait until an expected 20,000 migrants arrive in Tijuana and then enter the United States illegally en masse, according to a report.
The group plans to attempt to illegally enter the US through vehicle lanes at San Ysidro, because “it’s more spacious.”
Marco Gómez, 26, is a construction worker from Honduras who is currently marching with the caravan. According to the Epoch Times, he was with a larger group of migrants who were discussing how they want to “send a message” to President Donald Trump to “open the gates.”
“We’ll stay together and be strong, and then move on to the U.S.,” he said. “Peacefully, like people going from one country to another. Marching.”
Gómez and several others told the Epoch Times that they plan to enter illegally and are unlikely to apply for asylum.
“It’s a waste of time. It’s a process that takes months and years—it’s a long time,” Gómez said.
“I personally, and I know many people will attempt to do the same thing—it’s to cross illegally. I will enter illegally,” Martinez said. “Because we want a better life, and I’m in a hurry.”
“Mexico should deport migrants attempting to enter the US back to their home countries, Donald Trump has said, adding that many members of the so-called “caravan” were “criminals” and that the US would seal its border if necessary.
“Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries. Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!” the US president tweeted on Monday.
Over 7,000 migrants from Central America are seeking asylum in the US, with 5,000 currently being housed in a converted sports stadium in Mexico while they wait to apply for refugee status.”
