Mayor of Tijuana Slams Honduran Migrant Caravan: ‘We Don’t Want Them’



A shocking and offensive outburst of hate and intolerance directed towards the U.S-bound Honduran caravan of illegal migrants came on Thursday from a surprising place: the mayor of Tijuana, Mexico, a man named Juan Manuel Gastelum.

In an interview with the Mexican television network Milenio TV, 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.

It’s likely that the migrants will become a burdensome challenge for both American and Mexican border communities. Individuals who have traveled from as far as Honduras to the border won’t be deterred easily, and possibly will continue to make attempts at crossing the border until either the U.S. or Mexico repatriates them to their country of origin.

It remains to be seen when globalist progressives unwilling to accept anything other than a world open for unlimited migration will call for him to be removed from office, by any means necessary, for slandering immigrants.
