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.

SUV Carrying 27 People Crashes with Semi Truck Near Mexican Border, At Least 15 Killed

A tragedy that could’ve been avoided.

Published

on

A Tuesday morning crash involving an SUV and a semi truck has killed at least 15 people.

The crash occurred near Holtville, California, a town close to both the Arizona border and the US-Mexico border. The SUV, according to the New York Times, pulled into the path of the semi at an intersection.

14 of the victims were pronounced dead at the scene, while another died at the hospital. At least six other victims are currently receiving treatment at the hospital as well.

It is believed that 27 passengers were packed inside the SUV, which had a maximum legal capacity of seven to eight people. Because of this and the crash’s proximity to the US-Mexico border, it is probable that the passengers were illegal immigrants being smuggled into the United States.

The California Highway Patrol has not officially confirmed their immigration status because it is still under investigation, but Dr. Adolphe Edward of the El Centro Regional Medical Center said he believes the victims to be illegal aliens.

Big League Politics is closely following the illegal immigration crisis that’s been brewing since Joe Biden’s assumption of the White House. We recently reported on how the Border Patrol expects 13,000 illegal alien minors to arrive at the US-Mexico border in just the month of May. We also reported on Biden’s DHS secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claiming that he didn’t think the situation at the border constitutes a crisis:

Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.

Illegal immigration is harmful to both the nation and the migrants. Tuesday’s accident near the border was a tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
