In some of the Mexican towns playing host to a “caravan” of more than 1,200 Central American illegal alien invaders heading to the U.S. border, the welcome mat has been rolled out despite President Donald Trump’s call for Mexican authorities to stop them.
Local officials have offered lodging in town squares and empty warehouses or arranged transport for the illegal alien invaders, participants in a journey organized by the illegal alien invader advocacy group Pueblo Sin Fronteras. The officials have conscripted buses, cars, ambulances and police trucks. But the help may not be entirely altruistic.
“The authorities want us to leave their cities,” said Rodrigo Abeja, an organizer from Pueblo Sin Fronteras. “They’ve been helping us, in part to speed the massive group out of their jurisdictions.”
At some point this spring, the caravan’s 2,000-mile (3,200-km) journey that began at Tapachula near the Guatemalan border on March 25 will end at the U.S. border, where some of its members will apply for asylum, while others will attempt to sneak into the United States, Reuters reports.
So far the Mexican federal government has provided little guidance on how to handle the illegal alien invaders but Abeja worries that local reactions will change.
“There’s a lot of pressure from authorities to stop the caravan because of Donald Trump’s reaction,” he said.
Meanwhile, the caravan of illegal aliens sent out this press release of demands.
President Donald Trump warned Honduras and Mexico he will retaliate if an alleged “caravan” of immigrants from the Central American country enters the United States, reports Roll Call.
The president has paid close attention to the illegal’s claims of planning on invading the United States, and says if they do, Trump says he might cut off U.S. aid to Honduras and terminate the North American Free Trade Agreement, which has greatly benefited Mexico. But Congress might object to the former, since lawmakers control federal funding.
The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our “Weak Laws” Border, had better be stopped before it gets there. Cash cow NAFTA is in play, as is foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen. Congress MUST ACT NOW!

That caravan of illegal aliens is “now coming across Mexico and heading to our ‘Weak Laws’ Border,” Trump said, apparently disclosing intelligence information and also revealing American satellite and other surveillance assets inside and over its southern neighbor.
The alleged caravan “had better be stopped before it gets there,” Trump warned, reminding Mexican officials that their “cash cow NAFTA is in play,” and letting Honduran and other Central and South American leaders know “as is foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen.” And he again tried to nudge forward a stalled immigration overhaul process at home: “Congress MUST ACT NOW!”
