Unlike America, Mexico Enforces Border Security by Arresting Migrants

Published

on

DW reports that Mexican police arrested around 300-500 Central American migrants outside the city of Pijijiapan, Chiapas close to the border of Guatemala and Mexico.

Mexican police and immigration authorities apprehended the illegal immigrants who broke into Mexico with the goal of obtaining asylum in the United States.

This raid is one of the largest mounted against caravans since these mass migrant waves took off last year. After President Donald Trump threatened to close down the border last month if the caravans weren’t detained, Mexico has responded in kind with greater enforcement.

ZeroHedge reports that ” Thousands of Central American migrants – mostly from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador – made international headlines last October when they marched north through Mexico to the southern US border.”

This has inspired other caravans to make a similar trek northward. who claim to be running away from violence and poverty in their respective home countries. Curiously, they refuse offers of food, shelter, and work in Mexico.

Such movements have caused trouble in the U.S. with certain border towns like McAllen, Texas being flooded by unprecedented numbers of migrants.

BLP reported on how border crossing are on the verge of exceeding Bush-era levels.

There are steep costs to mass migration coming from Third World Countries.

Europe is already witnessing this at the social level, with countries like Germany becoming host to immigrant ghettoes.

On top of that, BLP detailed how current mass migration trends from Central America are costly for U.S. taxpayers.

It’s a bizarre time in politics when Mexico has more control over its border than the U.S.

Bezos, Bill Gates, Zuckerberg, Buffett and Larry Ellison saw their wealth increase by a total of $76 billion.

“The surge in billionaire wealth during a global pandemic underscores the grotesque nature of unequal sacrifice,” declared Chuck Collins, director of the IPS Program on Inequality and co-author of the Billionaire Bonanza 2020 report. “While millions risk their lives and livelihoods as first responders and front line workers, these billionaires benefit from an economy and tax system that is wired to funnel wealth to the top.”

However, some billionaires haven’t benefited so much:

Still, the pandemic hasn’t been kind to other billionaires – whose yacht upgrades may need to wait. Those in travel and retail have taken a beating. Ralph Lauren saw his wealth drop by $100 million to $5.6 billion, while hotelier John Pritzker has seen a $34 million drop to $2.56 billion. We know, time to get a collection going.

 As Americans experience economic uncertainty, certain business giants are clearly benefiting.The country needs to re-open in a timely manner.Failure to do so will widen this economic gulf and catalyze social unrest.
