Next Honduras Caravan Gets Nasty Welcome to Mexico

They’ve only just begun their long journey, but this third migrant caravan is already facing a hostile population.

Migrant Caravan

With their focus solely on reaching the United States, a massive caravan of Central American migrants are headed north through Mexico.

Mexico, however, isn’t exactly thrilled with that.

As a new caravan that began in Honduras and quickly swelled to an estimated 2,000 people made its way toward Mexico on Tuesday, Mexicans who live along the border towns that will likely be most affected took to the Internet to lash out against another wave of migrants.

“Work? Yes, there might be work for people who actually want to work, not for the lazy bums looking for entitlements,” said one commenter, with the screen name Azucena Santos, in Spanish on a YouTube page belonging to Shialeweb, who was recording the caravan. “Poor Mexicans, what’s in store for you!”

The message was clear.

“People of Honduras, all of you who are spinning these grand illusions and getting ready to come on this caravan and in any future others, before you leave your country, please inform yourself about how people who’ve already come on previous caravans are faring in Tijuana,” said Belem Gonzales.

“Mexico is just like your country,” Gonzales added. “There are many problems and needs, and you’re not going to be much better off than you were in Honduras. Please don’t trust these manipulative agitators who are encouraging you to risk everything for nothing.”

Meanwhile, the US federal government is currently locked in a partial shutdown that is beginning to cripple our infrastructure.

Should these migrants make it to the border, there is no telling what sort of American presence will be remaining their to greet them.

THE NUMBERS ARE IN: Florida has Lowest COVID Rate in the Nation

Well, would you look at that.

If Governor RonDesantis isn’t planning to shove this in everyone’s face for a while, we’d be surprised.

Florida, a state that has been the bane of the liberals’ existence in recent months due to their freedom-first coronavirus precautions, now get to gloat.  And bigly.

In mid-August, Florida was averaging about 25,000 new cases a day, or about 116 for every 100,000 residents. That was the worst rate in the U.S. — and one of the worst in the world. Awash in the hypercontagious Delta variant, the Sunshine State became one of the epicenters of the global pandemic.

During the past two months, however, Florida’s daily average has plummeted by more than 90 percent, to about 1,700 cases, or eight for every 100,000 residents. That’s roughly half of California’s current COVID rate and less than a quarter of Vermont’s. Hawaii (with nine cases for every 100,000 residents) is the only other state in single digits.

DeSantis has been absolutely adamant about allowing Floridians to choose the level of risk that they wish to take as it pertains to COVID-19, and has barred businesses and institutions from enacting vaccine or mask mandates.  This has gained him a great deal of criticism from the liberal left, who have insisted that the Governor is being reckless.

Search Warrant in Baldwin Shooting Reveals Blatant Negligence

This is unconscionable.

Published

Any time that someone dies on a movie set, you have to know that something has gone terribly, unforgivably wrong.

These sets are microcosms of the work of enormous and wealthy companies who are lawyered up to the gills, wading around in an industry where someone else’s misfortune is not to be squandered by the competition.

Nothing should ever go wrong on a movie set, if not for these simple facts alone.

That is why the latest details in the shooting death of a cinematographer last week are so damning.

The crew member responsible for overall safety on the set of Rust has admitted he didn’t properly check the gun that Alec Baldwin fired on October 21 and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

“During an interview with David Halls, when Affiant asked David about the safety protocol on set in regards to firearms, he advised, ‘I check the barrel for obstructions, most of the time there’s no live fire, she [Hannah] opens the hatch and spins the drum, and I say cold gun on set,’” reveals an affidavit successfully submitted by the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office for a new search warrant issued today (read the search warrant here).

“David advised when Hannah showed him the firearm before continuing rehearsal, he could only remember seeing three rounds,” the filing adds, noting the interaction that afternoon last week between the First AD and armorer Hannah Gutierrez.

And then…

“He advised he should have checked all of them, but didn’t, and couldn’t recall if she spun the drum,” the affidavit bluntly states of the crew member who has emerged at the core of this tragedy.

No charges have yet to be filed in response to the incident, but prosecutors have made it very clear that they haven’t ruled it out.
