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.

Woman In London Pleads Guilty To ISIS Terror Plot Designed To ‘Kill As Many People As Possible’

Published

People on the left often wonder why folks on the right are so hardcore about immigration laws being followed and enforced, after all, shouldn’t we, as a nation of immigrants, just allow others who want a better life to come on in, regardless of whether or not they respect our laws? Well, the story of a woman who just plead guilty to an ISIS plot in London is prime example of why that line of thinking is false and why so many conservatives want a secure border. Here’s more on this situation from The Washington Examiner: A British woman said she planned to bomb a hotel and St. Paul’s Cathedral in London after pledging allegiance to the Islamic State. Safiyya Amira Shaikh, 36, pleaded guilty on Friday in London Central Criminal Court. Prosecutors said Shaikh wanted to place an improvised explosive device in a hotel and then carry out a suicide bombing at London’s iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral with the goal of killing herself and “as many other people as possible.” Shaikh was born with the name Michelle Ramsden to a non-Muslim family but converted to Islam in 2007. She became radicalized by 2015 after listening and interacting with Islamic extremists online, according to the prosecution. Shaikh was responsible for casing out the cathedral and stayed close by at a hotel during her surveillance mission last year. What she didn’t know was that she was actually communicating with an undercover officer using an encrypted messaging app Telegram. Shaikh wrote in one message that she would “rather die young and get to paradise quickest way possible.” “I always knows I wanted to do something big … killing one [infidel] is not enough for me,” Shaikh said. The undercover officer working the case pretended to be an expert with explosives and offered…

Katie Hill’s Claim About Why She Resigned Her Post Disputed By Former Republican Lawmaker

Published

on

Former GOP lawmaker Ryan Costello recently stated that he isn’t buying the explanation that Democratic Rep. Katie Hill gave for stepping down from her post. If you’ll remember back, Hill resigned from her position while facing an investigation by the House Ethics Committee looking into an alleged affair she had with a member of her congressional office. However, Hill visited “The View” and said the real reason she actually stepped down. Here’s more on all of this from The Washington Examiner: Hill said the “slow processes” of the investigation would have been “incredibly invasive to my staff and to my entire office.” “It’s also something that I’m glad I was able to take the pressure off of my staff by resigning so that they didn’t have to worry about that,” she said. “But why did I decide to step down? I realized the impact that I was having on my colleagues. I did not want to be a distraction during the time that we were coming up on the impeachment inquiry vote. I didn’t want to be used as a tool against my fellow freshmen who were coming from these swing districts.” Her comments on The View came a day after she claimed “biphobia” was the reason behind her resignation, and that’s where Costello pushed back. https://twitter.com/RyanCostello/status/1230848827621507072 Photos of Hill, 32, were published in October that showed her naked in a hotel room, brushing the hair of a female campaign staffer who worked on her 2018 congressional campaign. Additional photos were later published that showed her holding a bong while undressed. She apologized and admitted she had an affair with the female campaign aide but denied another alleged affair with a staffer and resigned days later. Hill later on said that she struggled deeply with suicidal thoughts after she resigned…
