A popular Qatari-owned media organization called Mexican citizens of Tijuana who bucked the migrant caravan as “xenophobic.”
“Is xenophobia growing in Mexico?” AJ+ asked in a video highlighting Mexican citizens protesting a horde of illegal migrants moving through the region.
“Hundreds of Mexicans held an anti-immigrant protest near the U.S. border and injured Central Americans,” the video said.
Of course, AJ+ left out the crucial subtlety that makes this a debate in the first place – these are not simply “immigrants,” they are illegal immigrants. There is a genuine debate to be had over whether countries should be allowed to defend their borders, and most sane people would agree that they should. What defines a nation if not its borders? The network, which usually targets white, American Republicans with its race-baiting segments, took an extraordinary leap in targeting Mexicans, whom they often depict as victims of racism by Americans.
Even the Mayor of Tijuana stated his malcontent with the caravan migrants. Big League Politics reported on the Mexican protests Friday:
In an interview with the Mexican television network Milenio TV, [Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel] Gastleum repudiated the lawlessness of the caravan, affirming that Tijuana was a “city of immigrants,” but that “we don’t want them this way.” He would go on to characterize the thousands-strong caravan of mostly Central American illegal migrants as “a horde, if you would pardon the expression.”
In the interview, Gastelum appealed for the Mexican authorities to take action- stating that they should deport the migrants as soon as possible.
Sources allege that up to 3,000 of the caravan migrants have already arrived in the city of Tijuana, which sits in Baja California across from San Diego on the other side of the U.S.-Mexico Border. Tijuana regularly faces the challenge of taking back deported Mexican nationals from the United States, and further accommodating large quantities of people who aren’t even Mexican citizens attempting to find a way into the U.S. would strain an already troubled city. According to the Daily Caller, Tijuana residents have already begun to protest the arrival of caravan migrants near an area where they have invited themselves in to set up a camp.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
