‘Caravan migrants’ set fire to Mexican immigration facility, as Independent voters and FoxNews express sympathy

On October 22, 2018, asked for their thoughts about the “caravans” of tens of thousands of impressively healthy and well-dressed, mainly young, military-age male “migrants” marching/trucking/bussing across Guatemala and Mexico toward the U.S. border, a panel of independent voters surprised “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy by expressing sympathy for the “migrants” because, as the panel put it, the poor “migrants” are just fleeing poverty, oppression and violence.

One independent voter said:

“I think our immigration laws need to be modernized and updated. But this country is founded on immigration. And all of us come from immigrants.”

Another said:

“There’s a humanitarian crisis taking place in Central America. And yet, this issue gets turned into a complete political football. There’s very little honest discussion about what’s actually happening, it gets turned into talking points.”

Yet another independent voter, when asked how he would feel if the “migrant caravan” reached 20,000 people, grandly said:

“This is the mightiest country on the planet, I think we can handle a caravan of people, unarmed, coming to this country.”

The unexpected sympathetic reaction from the panel of independent voters was celebrated by the Hate America Media (HAM). Washington Post praises the panel as heroic “rebels”; Salon commends the panel for rejecting Fox News‘ “fearmongering”; while The Hill snickeringly calls Fox News’ assemblage of the panel as an “epic fail”.

But it’s not just the panel of independent voters.

On October 22, 2018, Fox News co-host Brian Kilmeade said about the “migrants”:

“I imagine these are good people. Most of them are good people. I’m sure some are up to no good. I’m sure they just want a better life. I get that.”

On October 29, supposedly conservatie Fox News host Lou Dobbs took issue with his guest, Sidney Powell, for saying the “migrants” heading toward our southern border will bring into the United States diseases like polio that the U.S. hadn’t seen in decades. Dobbs defended the invading horde, calling them “illegal immigrants”:

“You can’t very well blame that disease on illegal immigrants. We don’t know the cause of it…I don’t think that’s fair.”

Just remember that the above examples are not from the overtly-Leftwing media. It’s supposedly conservative Fox News.

Bishop Jaime Calderón Calderón of Tapachula, Mexico even claims to know God’s mind — that God will reward those who assist the “caravan” invaders. He said:

“I am deeply grateful to my brother priests and all those people from our parishes who have gone far beyond their means to be able to provide for others. Know that God will always reward that goodness which you have shown.”

These are the disease-free, “unarmed”, “good” “immigrants” who are just fleeing “inhumane” conditions in their home countries, and whom the good bishop urges us to help:

(1) On October 19, 2018, the “migrants” broke through a flimsy border fence on Mexico’s southern border onto a bridge leading to Mexico. A violent clash with dozens of Mexican police in riot gear ensued, in which several officers were injured. See “Thousands of ‘migrant caravan’ invaders break through Mexico border fence – Video”.

(2) On October 28, 2018, as reported by the AP, another group of young male “migrants” stormed Mexico’s southern border in the Guatemala town of Tecun Uman and forced their way across. Some of the “migrants” were carrying rocks and bottles to throw at the police; others were armed with guns and firebombs. A 26-year-old male “migrant” was killed, but reports differ as to who actually killed the man. See “Shocking video of second ‘migrant caravan’ tearing down Mexico-Guatemala border fence; one invader killed”.

(3) On October 29, 2018, in a town in Chiapas, two Honduran “migrants”, one of them a minor, “attacked with firearm” the Mexican Federal Police. As recounted by the Mexican Ministry of Interior, police arrested the two “foreign nationals” — Carlos “N”, 17, and Jerson “N”, 22. They shot at police with a 38 mm Glock pistol, containing “9 useful cartridges”. “Fortunately, the assailants’ weapon failed, so they could not hurt any element of the FP.”

(4) Hours after the shooting in Chiapas, a group of Central American “migrants” facing deportation set fire to an immigration facility in Chiapas in an apparent attempt to escape. As reported  by Breitbart, Oct. 30, 2018:

The fire was reportedly started at a facility dual-purposed as a checkpoint and makeshift detention center for Mexico’s National Migration Institute (INM) in Pijijiapan, Chiapas, when a group of migrants housed there set fire to their mattresses, Televisa Noticias reported. According to local public safety director Jaime Marroquin, authorities were housing 21 men, five women, and three children which were in the process of being deported. The migrants reportedly set fires to give cover to their escape.

Firefighters responded to the scene while Mexican Federal Police officers detained the alleged runaways and moved them to a large immigration facility in Tapachula, Chiapas.

The caravan began its journey earlier this month in Honduras and publicly announced its intent to reach the U.S. border. The Mexican government offered the caravan temporary jobs, health care, and education if they agreed to stay in southern Mexico and follow the country’s legal procedures for requesting asylum. The group largely turned down the offer, however, according to the INM, 111 migrants agreed and requested Mexican identification documents.

“This is the mightiest country on the planet, I think we can handle a caravan of people, unarmed, coming to this country.”

But, what isn’t said is this is ‘just the beginning’…if this is allowed, open the gates for thousands more every month.

Well if President Trump will provide tents for the invading locust, whom eventually will be given a free pass in the US, is he planning to donate HIS $$$$$$$$$$ to: feed them, provide healthcare, clothing, housing, Medicare/Medicaid etc, or is he planning for WE THE PEOPLE to sacrifice for their welfare. There is a family with five children, the oldest 10 and the youngest 5 mo. am I going to be their keeper? They will be absorbed in front of our noses, and we will find ourselves once again with our pants down asking for more!

If the standard is that you apply for asylum from your own home country–then that is it. If you do other than that, you get sent back home. Do we really want people whose mindset is that they burn down public buildings if they don’t get whatever it is that they want? I think not.

This so-called migration may be motivated by The Promise of Sorrows (sic) to give each member of the family that gets inside the USA a gift of $1,000, or something on that order. I don’t know why people keep calling it a migration; that term we reserve for birds, caribou, and butterflies, amongst other critters. This is well and truly an invasion, nothing less!

I avoid watching The Young Turks but occasionally do watch it. Today, for example. If people knew anything about the original Young Turks, current viewers would probably change channels. The original Young Turks was a group seeking the extermination of Armenians and probably Jews as well. And TYT II flanks himself with a woman with an Armenian name and a man with what could be a Jewish name, and both unknowingly serving as dhimmis. Are such followers possessor of fewer brain cells than an amoeba, or are they victims of our present education and general information systems? As for Lou… Read more »

An undercover video shows staffers on U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill’s campaign describing how Planned Parenthood sends money to her secretly so she will not look as pro-abortion to Missouri voters. A pro-abortion Democrat, McCaskill is considered one of the most vulnerable senators running for re-election in November, Townhall reports. After voting against U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, she fell behind her opponent, pro-life Republican Josh Hawley, in the polls. The video, released by Project Veritas this week, shows how McCaskill’s campaign appears to be trying to appeal to moderate voters in the mid-western state by downplaying her radical pro-abortion stance.… Read more »

The answer you get depends on the person you ask. So they got a few in one place who like illegals. I’m not impressed. Most Americans don’t want to be invaded by people who can’t follow the simple rules of applying to be here legally. Criminals from DAY ONE.

There is nothing new under the sun. I may not be a woman, black, hispanic or asian but I know the human condition since I am one. I know the range of emotions and I’ve felt everything I am sure my fellow man has felt. Except I did not break the law even at my lowest point, althought the temptation was there. This is not about human need and has very little to do with misery. It is to aid greedy, power hungry, tyrannical people get and keep power. There’s an old saying about users with selfish purposes. They won’t… Read more »

These illegal invader trying to get into out country are violent people, just like the democRATs and crybaby liberals that are already in this country.
Remember Kate Steinle
Remember Molly Tibbetts
Build the wall…Deport them all.

DemocRATs and liberals are the United States number one enemy.

Outside of an occasional local news broadcast, I stopped watching TV “news” a long time ago.

I can read ten times faster than the nuze goobers can talk, and I know my way around the net and the sites I know I can trust.

The hosts of FoxNews are nothing more than paid prostitutes. They are wholly owned and operated by the man who signs their checks, the Murdochs, who are part of the Bloomberg et al amnesty/open borders activist group.

Left Fox for OAN where hosts such as Graham Ledger are not parrots for their boss’ agenda and who are unafraid to speak the truth.

Heard Pres. Trump’s press conference on the way home from work today. He was talking about the invasion force coming up, and the subject of use of force came up. POTUS said that he told the army to treat a rock like a rifle, citing the damage and injuries they caused the Mexican police as they burst through the border fence; he said that there were a lot of tough men in the invasion force. Pres. Trump said that he hopes it doesn’t come to that, but he stressed again the need to protect our border-yes!

I’m a bit surprised that those independent voters were very sympathetic, usually, it’s CNN that tries to show independents as normally liberal; Fox tried the same thing, and got the result that CNN wishes they could get.

This is a “lose-lose” situation for both President Trump and for the American people: if the president repels this caravan somehow—-both HE and WE will be characterized as Nazi scum in the liberal press around the world (even tho’ much of the world would do the SAME THING out of economic necessity/ survival of their State against such a tide of humanity invading empty-handed and in penury). ANd, if the president can not keep this caravan and the following ones (probably endless) out—he will be construed as a failure and the liberal press far and wide will tout him so—–and… Read more »

Now this BS:

“Group of migrants travelling on foot from Honduras file federal lawsuit against Pres Trump and others. “Trump’s professed and enacted policy towards thousands of caravanners seeking asylum in the United States is shockingly unconstitutional.”

Most countries in the world do not offer birthright citizenship — only 30 out of the world’s 194 nations automatically grant citizenship to children born to illegal immigrant parents, according to the Center for Immigration Studies. No European country has birthright citizenship, and the global trend over the past 30 years has been to halt the practice. Notable countries that have ended birthright citizenship in recent decades include the U.K. in 1983, Australia in 1986, India in 1987 and Ireland in 2004….The U.S. and Canada are alone among developed nations worldwide that automatically grant citizenship to people born within their… Read more »

“Refugee Resettlement: The Lucrative Business of Serving Immigrants”
[Including HIAS]

“Left-wing grant-makers have embarked on a campaign aimed at overwhelming America with unprecedented levels of immigration. These foundations underwrite a universe of liberal organizations that are devoted to bringing in ever more people from all over the world, and the organizations’ motives include money.”
