Migrant Caravan Members Attempt to Extort $50k Each from U.S. Government

Published

Members of the migrant caravan that paraded from Central American to the southern border attempted to extort the United States in a bold move Tuesday.

“Two groups of Central American migrants made separate marches on the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana Tuesday, demanding that they be processed through the asylum system more quickly and in greater numbers, that deportations be halted and that President Trump either let them into the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home,” according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. 

Now that we know that they’re looking for handouts and that they’re willing to extort us, how could anyone possibly defend the caravan? Democrats will surely find a way.

The caravan has been fairly quiet for the past week, but Tuesday was the one month anniversary of their arrival at the border. The report said that about 700 of caravan members have voluntarily returned home, while 300 have been deported and some 2,500 have applied for Mexican humanitarian visas. Around 3,500 are reportedly unaccounted for, and according to the Union-Tribune, have likely crossed the border illegally into the United States, or “simply fallen through the cracks.”

“The first group demanding action, numbering about 100, arrived at the U.S. Consulate at about 11 am Tuesday. The migrants said they were asking that the Trump Administration pay them $50,000 each or allow them into the U.S,” according to the report.

The organizer of the group is Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa of Honduras, who accused America of stealing from his home nation. Another migrant who harbors animosity towards the United States? Sounds like an excellent candidate for citizenship!

“It may seem like a lot of money to you,” Ulloa  reportedly said. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”

The group of migrants has reportedly given the United States 72 hours to respond to their demands. They have not stated what they will do if their demands are not met.

Greyhound Gives Amnesty to Illegal Immigrant Riders, Bans Immigration Checks on Their Buses

They have caved to the leftists.

Published

on

Greyhound has announced that they will not permit immigration checks on their buses any longer, effectively giving amnesty for illegals who are using their services to evade ICE and federal enforcement.

“Our primary concern is the safety of our customers and team members, and we are confident these changes will lead to an improved experience for all parties involved,” the company said. “We plan to begin the implementation of these changes immediately.”

Previously, Greyhound had allowed U.S. Customs and Border Protection to come aboard their buses and perform immigration checks. Far-left groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) had criticized their policy, saying it harmed the constitutional rights of the individuals in the country illegally.

“We are pleased to see Greyhound clearly communicate that it does not consent to racial profiling and harassment on its buses,” said Andrea Flores, who works as the deputy director of policy for the ACLU’s Equality Division, to the AP. “By protecting its customers and employees, Greyhound is sending a message that it prioritizes the communities it serves.”

Liberal state attorney generals had threatened Greyhound with lawsuits if they kept allowing immigration enforcement on their buses. Far-left Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson is thrilled that his threats made the company capitulate.

“Today’s announcement from Greyhound confirms what should have been obvious to the company since I contacted them a year ago – it has both the power and the responsibility to stand up for its customers, who suffered for far too long from Greyhound’s indifference to CBP’s suspicion-less bus raids and harassment,” Ferguson said in his statement responding to the change in Greyhound’s policy.

President Trump had changed a policy from the Obama administration that relaxed enforcement of immigration law due to concerns over “racial profiling.” Under Obama, agents were forced to stay away from train and bus stations, which are common hubs for illegals, unless they found “actionable intelligence” about an alien, and their actions had to be directly approved from Border Patrol headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Trump gave immigration officers more discretion to enforce the law in order to remedy the national emergency that has resulted from the border being flooded by waves of third-world migrants.

“The U.S. Border Patrol conducts regular outreach with transportation companies to foster good working relationships,” the Border Patrol said in a statement earlier this month.

Left-wing groups will stop at nothing to replace Americans with third-world foreigners who will vote Democrat and usher in a new era of socialism. It may be time for these subversive, anti-American entities to lose their tax-exempt status, or be ejected from the country, like Hungary Prime Minister Viktor Orban did with the Soros network in his nation.
