South of California, in the rough and tumble town of Tijuana, Mexico, a storm is brewing.
There, in the city known for its seedier aspersions, thousands of Central American travelers are waiting for their chance to storm the gates of California and become illegal immigrants to the United States.
For what it’s worth, US President Donald Trump has been trying everything in his power to persuade these would-be illegal immigrants into the citizenship system, attempting unsuccessfully to ban the seeking of asylum for those caught entering the nation unlawfully.
Now, after one clash on the border has already turned ugly, plans have emerged for yet another storming of the gates…something that has certainly piqued the concerns of political observers.
Breitbart Texas Editor Brandon Darby reported exclusively on caravan migrants’ plans for a Saturday march to the U.S.-Mexico border from an encampment in Tijuana, Mexico. He joined Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight to speak with host Rebecca Mansour and special guest host Rick Manning.Trending:
Darby was live on the scene in Tijuana Friday night with his colleague Robert Arce to report on the Central American migrants encamped in the border city waiting their turn to request asylum at the U.S. port of entry in California.
“In talking with people, among other things, we learned that they are in fact marching again tomorrow morning to the border,” reported Darby. “We had reported earlier that agitator groups were trying to rile the migrants up to go to the border. Many of the migrants have already left here, and Mexico is putting them in an inside-shelter — a shelter that’s enclosed — maybe some 45 minutes away, and there are buses coming [and] taking people, but a lot of people chose to stay here because some of them believe that Mexico is taking them to be deported and it’s a trick, and others are staying here because they’re going to march again tomorrow. So we can expect to see some of what we saw last week possibly happen again tomorrow. They are, in fact, planning on marching.”
There were other concerns as well.
Darby described poor sanitary conditions and widespread sickness among caravan migrants in their encampment.
