A second invasion caravan, believed to be armed with bombs and guns, crossed into Mexico on Monday despite a huge police presence.
Hundreds of migrants following in the footsteps of the first caravan heading to the U.S. border crossed a river from Guatemala.
A low-flying police helicopter hovered overhead as the migrants waded in large groups through the Suchiate River’s murky waters, apparently trying to use the downdraft from its rotors to discourage them.
Once on the Mexican side the invaders were surrounded and escorted by black-uniformed officers as sirens wailed.
The second group back at the Guatemalan frontier has been more unruly than the first that crossed. Guatemala’s Interior Ministry said Guatemalan police officers were injured when the invasion caravan broke through border barriers on Guatemala’s side of the bridge.
Mexico authorities said barbarians attacked its agents with rocks, glass bottles and fireworks when they broke through a gate on the Mexican end but were pushed back, and some allegedly carried guns and firebombs.
On Monday, Mexican Interior Secretary Alfonso Navarrete Prida lamented what he called a second ‘violent attempt’ to storm the border, accusing people of placing the elderly, pregnant women and children at the front, putting them at risk of being crushed.
‘Fortunately, that did not happen,’ he said.
The standoff at the riverbank followed a more violent confrontation that occurred on the bridge over the river Sunday night, when barbarians threw rocks and used sticks against Mexico police. One invading barbarian died from a head wound during the clash, but the cause was unclear.
Hundreds of miles up the road in southern Mexico, the first invasion caravan of some 4,000 barbarians resumed its advance, still at least 1,000 miles or farther from their goal of reaching the United States as the Pentagon announced it would send 5,200 active-duty troops to ‘harden’ the U.S.-Mexico border. There are already more than 2,000 National Guard troops providing assistance at the border.
The invasion caravan currently has about 4,000 people, but has been dwindling. Earlier this year, only about 200 from a caravan of some 1,000 barbarians reached the Tijuana-San Diego frontier.
At a checkpoint near the town, some barbarians gathered to ask for help returning home to Honduras, the origin of the great majority of those in the caravan.
Exhausted from many days on the road, and disheartened by the many miles yet to go and misbehavior by some fellow travelers, people have been dropping out from the caravan, which at its peak was estimated at more than 7,000.
The generosity shown by small towns and residents when the invasion caravan first began trekking through southern Mexico has also lessened. At the last stop, few people came out to offer food, clothes and other items, said Hasiel Isamar Hernandez, a 28-year-old Honduran mother of three who has been with the caravan since it started in her hometown of San Pedro Sula.
‘Of the friends that I have been with, all want to go back,’ Hernandez said, adding that many had blistered feet. For her, the last straw was when her husband told her that her 3-year-old daughter back home had stopped eating because she missed her mother.
Another Honduran, Teodozo Melendez, 31, was also waiting for a bus back home after fighting a fever for two days. His body ached.
‘I thought it would be easier,’ Melendez said, lying on the ground.
Melendez’s goal had been to join relatives living in Houston. His experience with the caravan had taught him one thing, he said: ‘The next time, I’m going to need a ‘coyote,” or smuggler.
Mexico said Sunday that temporary identity numbers had been issued to more than 300 barbarians, which would allow them to stay and work in Mexico. Pregnant women, children and the elderly were among those who joined the program and were now being attended at shelters.
At least 1,895 have applied for refugee status in Mexico, and hundreds of others have accepted assisted returns to their country of origin.
While the majority of the caravan moves toward the United States, the Pentagon announced it is sending thousands of active-duty military to stop the invasion of 3rd world barbarians.
The Pentagon announcement comes as President Donald Trump tweeted: ‘This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!’
President Donald Trump is making another hardline immigration play in the final days before the midterm elections, declaring that he wants to order an end to the constitutional right to citizenship for babies born in the United States to non-citizens. Pro-invasion “scholars” think he can’t implement such a change unilaterally.
Many conservatives believe this action will bring the Supreme Court to revisit the 14th Amendment, redefining birthright citizenship as actually defined in the 14th Amendment, which was only written for slaves, and the children of slaves at the time. This proper definition would end automatic citizenship by being born in the United States.
The Fourteenth Amendment (Amendment XIV) to the United States Constitution was adopted on July 9, 1868, as one of the Reconstruction Amendments. Arguably one of the most consequential amendments to this day, the amendment addresses citizenship rights and equal protection of the laws and was proposed in response to issues related to former slaves following the American Civil War.
China has an entire tourist industry devoted to abusing the law, bringing its pregnant citizens to the United States with the intention of giving birth to a brand-new American citizen. This then allows Chinese citizens to skirt American immigration laws, as mothers of birthright children, ie: anchor babies, are often given preferential status to remain in the United States.
Trump, seeking to end the invasion of the United States, has frequently reminded Americans about an invasion caravan of Central American barbarians making its way to the U.S.-Mexico border.
Jon Feere, a senior adviser at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is among those who has long argued that that the president could limit the citizenship clause through executive action.
“A president could direct his agencies to fall in line with his interpretation of the Supreme Court’s rulings, which are arguably limited to children of permanently domiciled immigrants (the court has never squarely ruled on children born to tourists or illegal aliens). He could direct his agencies to issue Social Security numbers and passports only to newborns who have at least one parent who is a citizen or permanently domiciled immigrant.”
