Mexico Offers Asylum To Caravan – Their Response Speaks Volumes

They didn’t mince words, either.

Time is running out for the migrant caravan currently sauntering through Mexico, as they approach the United States.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has already warned this horde of Central American immigrants that the US is not prepared to allow them to enter without the proper protocol, telling them simply to turn back as opposed to attempting any illegal crossing.  As they continue onward, Mexico has even reached out to make offers of asylum for the huddled masses, to which the caravan responded with intent.

Several thousand Central American migrants turned down a Mexican offer of benefits if they applied for refugee status and stayed in the country’s two southernmost states, vowing to set out before dawn Saturday to continue their long trek toward the U.S. border.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto announced what he called the “You are at home” plan, offering shelter, medical attention, schooling and jobs to Central Americans in Chiapas and Oaxaca states if they applied, calling it a first step toward permanent refugee status. Authorities said more than 1,700 had already applied for refugee status.

But after one of the caravan’s longest days of walking and hanging from passing trucks, the bulk of the migrants were boisterous Friday evening in their refusal to accept anything less than safe passage to the U.S. border.

They didn’t mince words, either.

“Thank you!” they yelled as they voted to reject the offer in a show of hands in the town of Arriaga. They then added: “No, we’re heading north!”

What awaits this caravan when they arrive in the US is yet to be fully determined, but we do know that up to 1,000 military personnel will be ready to respond to any instances of violence or trespassing at that time.

Furious Furloughed Federal Workers Descend on DC Swamp to Demand Action

It’s the ruling class versus the working class on the streets of DC this weekend as protesters take their gripes to Pennsylvania Avenue.

government shutdown

Americans are becoming increasingly disenfranchised with the asinine behavior of our elected officials, and a breaking point seems to be in the offing.

The partial government shutdown that we are currently navigating is undoubtedly sending us in the direction of civil unrest, as nearly a million government workers are being asked to continue toiling away at their jobs despite their net-zero paychecks.

This has led to massive callouts at the TSA, the suspension of routine food inspections by the FDA, and a general sense of anger and lament among We The People.  The Washington fat cats are too proud to compromise, and the working class Americans who are affected by this sinful pride have reached a tipping point.

It’s the ruling class versus the working class on the streets of DC this weekend as protesters take their gripes to Pennsylvania Avenue.

Hundreds of furloughed government workers and contractors descended on the White House on Thursday to plead to be allowed to return to work.

Holding signs such as “Stop the war on workers” and “We want work, not walls,” the protesters assembled in the bitter cold outside of AFL-CIO union headquarters before making their way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The anger was palpable.

“I’d like the shutdown to end. I’d like to go back to my job,” said Matthew Chrichton, a 32-year-old staffer for the Peace Corps, adding that he’d moved to Washington for his job four months ago and “living in DC is expensive.”

“I have rent to pay,” he said. “I have bills I need to pay. I want to go to work, and I can’t because they can’t figure out how to fund the government.”

The action comes after weeks of populists uprisings in France, in which the French people have railed against their own government’s lack of care for the people of that nation.

If the American government shutdown doesn’t end soon, there is little doubt that scenes similar to those we’ve witnessed in Paris could be on the horizon.

Blackface-Wearing Comedian Joins Dems in Dismissing Border Crisis

There is a crisis on the border where women are being raped and children are dying, but don’t worry! Blackface-wearing comedian Jimmy Kimmel says everything is fine.

There are no shortage of disturbing issues with the liberal left’s stance on border security, not the least of which was on full display last night.

Shortly after President Trump delivered an 8-minute address to the nation on the subject of the southern border, the media spin-machine was turned up to 11.  In the immediate aftermath of the Commander in Chief’s speech, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took to the podium, looking eerily similar to the famous Grant Wood painting American Gothic.  During their terse, dry, and unconvincing read of their vetted and re-vetted verbiage, the two failed to make any sort of point that resembled a counterattack to the President.

The American people weren’t buying it, with anchors on CNN even visibly disappointed by the lackluster language.

Then came the late night hosts, who again attempted to downplay the severity of what it happening on the border.

“All the major networks covered his speech live, and for good reason,” Jimmy Kimmel began. “It was historic. Rarely does a president of the United States interrupt primetime television to warn us about a completely made-up thing.”

Kimmel then suggested that the speech should be accompanied by the following disclaimer: “The following presidential address is a work of fiction. All personalities, incidents, events, locations and facts were pulled directly from the president’s ass.”

“So with that as a caveat, the president spoke. He did not mention the caravan that was coming to get us three months ago. I don’t know what happened to that, but I guess it disappeared when the election was done,” Kimmel said. “But he does want us to believe there is a crisis at the border beside the one he created. He desperately wants us to be worried about the border.”

Kimmel’s remarks are akin to denial of the horrific conditions that many of the migrants face.

Not only are these human beings subjected to blistering temperatures, dangerous trails, and nefarious ne’er do wells on their journey, but we have already seen at least two instances in which children are dying as a result of their attempts to be marched across the border.

And this doesn’t even take into account the unspeakable and unfathomable things that occur to women and children as they mingle with these hardened smugglers.

If the democrats and the comedians want to downplay the severity of that, they do so at the peril of being labeled “Border Crisis Deniers” – a term purposefully reminiscent of “Holocaust Deniers”.

But, what else do you expect from a man who habitually wore blackface for chuckles?
