This week, 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. In fact, one Mexican, Belem Gonzalez warned the caravan members by saying…
“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. Mexico is just like your country. 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.”
Belem Gonzalez, Mexico resident
Also, Luis Mendez said…
We do not want caravans of (emojis of rats). Fight conditions in your own country. You are not welcome here.”
Luis Menendez, Mexico resident
According to the Honduras National Commission of Human rights, by Tuesday afternoon, in what started out to be a 500 strong caravan, it quickly swelled to 2,000 and continues to grow. Migrants have been boarding buses destined for the Honduran/Guatemalan border, while others set off on foot. Once again, the Open-Border groups “Pueblos Sin Fronteras” or “Communities Without Borders”, and “Dignificacion Humana” or “Dignifying Humans” once again organized the migration, and claim that the group will swell to 4,000 or more. Both groups are being heavily financed, and it is believed that Billionaire George Soros backed Globalist and Marxist-Socialist groups are behind the migration push, as well as the millions of dollars in expenses required for them to organize and carry out the migration.
Many experts are not surprised that the caravans are beginning to see hostility from the Mexican people, as they have brought dangerous criminals, rapists, murderers, MS-13 gang members, and virulent contagious diseases with them. Reports of Mexican citizens feeling overwhelmed by the mass influx of migrants has taken its toll on the Mexican people.
Today, regardless of the apparent crime, drugs, and disease that is being brought northward to the American border, Democrats refuse to give the President the funds he needs to build a wall, which is to protect American interests, and the American people! In fact, House Democrats refused to participate in a meeting with President Trump on Tuesday, after the White House’s requested Congressional members meet to try and negotiate an end to the partial-government shut-down and border security issue. Although President Trump has offered to give demands that the Democrats have asked for like humanitarian aid to the caravan migrants, and by lowering the amount he gets to fund border security and a wall, Democrats refuse to agree to anything but what they demanded. They said that they would not give any money for the wall, but want their demands met regardless. Even when Pelosi and Schumer refused to meet with the Trump, the President reached out to the more moderate Democrats in the Party, requesting they help end the shut-down. However, Pelosi and Schumer intervened and threatened the House members, officially ending any negotiations!
Then, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on Tuesday afternoon…
“I’ll meet with him anytime he wants. But the last time I spoke to him was when he threw a temper tantrum and walked out, and we haven’t heard from him since then.”
However, Republicans pointed out that the President walked out of the meetings because Schumer and Pelosi said that they would not concede any money to fund a wall that secures the southern border. Therefore, the President decided that if they were not willing to negotiate, but instead demand their way, he had other matters to deal with and walked out.
Ultimately, Tuesday’s meeting to resolve the shutdown and border crisis saw eight Republicans in attendance, but no Democrats. When they emerged from the meetings, House Representative Rodney Davis (R-IL) said…
“If you don’t show up at the table, how in the world are you ever going to come up with a solution?”
Instead of showing up to talk, Democrats held a press conference, marched to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office, and demanded he bring up bills to fund the government that the House Democrats passed. However, being they were riddled with Progressive treats for Democrat districts with no wall funding and little border security funding, McConnell refused, and the President vowed to veto, citing he would not sacrifice American safety.
Reports indicate that President Trump and his Administration will be sending out the second round of invites in an attempt to negotiate, but at this time it seems pointless, as Democrats are holding funding hostage.
Representative Linda Sanchez (D-CA) said…
“Trump said it was his shutdown, he’s hurting everyday families that are in all of our districts. People see the hostage-taking and we’re not going to give in.”
However, the President actually said that…
“I am proud to shut down the government for border security because people don’t want criminals, people that have lots of problems, and drugs pouring into our country. So, I will take the mantle.”
Therefore, the President is fighting for border security, but as the Democrats now refuse to even talk or negotiate, they are assuming responsibility. In fact, since they are demanding to fund the government and giving them everything that they want or else, it has morphed into blackmail of both the President and the American people!
Currently, both the House and Senate are planning on staying in session during the Martin Luther King recess next week, especially after House Speaker Pelosi was caught vacationing at a Hawaii resort, and 30 other members were being wined and dined at a resort in Puerto Rico during the shut-down. However still, Pelosi just met in a closed-door Caucus meeting on Tuesday, where she told Democrats to remain strong and keep the government shut-down, as she pointed to polling numbers that showed Americans blame Trump. Pelosi went on to encourage House Democrats to go on Media outlets and social media to talk about families being hurt by the shutdown and gain the sympathies of the American people.
Meanwhile, as Democrats in pro-Trump districts keep in lockstep with Pelosi, some refuse to answer questions about their allegiances. For example, Spanberger, one of nearly two dozen freshmen Democrats in Trump-won districts, wouldn’t answer reporters’ questions about whether she had received an invite from Trump. She ended up telling reporters to contact her staff, of whom no one could reach or never heard back. Even Representative Dave Brat (D-VA), who said Democrats were losing the messaging war, after talking with Pelosi, was silenced.
Ultimately, the Democrats have vowed to keep the government shut down to defy the President, block his ability to secure the border, and to try and remove his credibility with the American people. However, in the process, they are exhibitioning their disgust they have for the Constitution and the powers it grants to the American people, as well as their entrenchment in ideological Marxism over their representation of their real bosses, ‘We the People’! Therefore, it is high time that the American people speak up and tell them what they think of their obstruction and defiance of their constituents!
