Mexican Citizens Agree With Trump as They Protest ‘Invasion’ by Caravan Migrants

Mexican Citizens Agree With Trump as They Protest ‘Invasion’ by Caravan Migrants

“We demand respect. We demand that our laws be followed.”

Mexican citizens in Tijuana have discovered their inner Trump as the city becomes overwhelmed by the influx of thousands of members of the Central American caravans. Protests are happening and the word “invasion” is even being used.

Katie Pavlich reports at Townhall:

Mexican Citizens: Trump is Right, This Caravan is Absolutely an Invasion

A caravan from Central America reached the U.S.-Mexico border last week. Thousands of people are camped out as they wait at the Tijuana port of entry to claim asylum. A number of other caravans are currently making their way north to do the same.

Locals in Mexico have already had enough and organized a protest against the illegal migrants over the weekend.

Pavlich points to this report from the Associated Press:

Tijuana protesters chant ‘Out!’ at migrants camped in city

Hundreds of Tijuana residents congregated around a monument in an affluent section of the city south of California on Sunday to protest the thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived via caravan in hopes of a new life in the U.S.

Tensions have built as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road, and with many more months ahead of them while they seek asylum. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000.

On Sunday, displeased Tijuana residents waved Mexican flags, sang the Mexican national anthem and chanted “Out! Out!” in front of a statue of the Aztec ruler Cuauhtemoc, 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from the U.S. border. They accused the migrants of being messy, ungrateful and a danger to Tijuana. They also complained about how the caravan forced its way into Mexico, calling it an “invasion.” And they voiced worries that their taxes might be spent to care for the group.

Trump has tweeted on this topic:

Angry Tijuana Residents Push Back Against Migrant Caravan: ‘This Is an Invasion’

Hundreds of angry residents took to the streets of downtown Tijuana on Sunday to protest the caravan of Central American migrants that has been streaming into the city in recent weeks.

Carrying Mexican flags and singing the national anthem, the demonstrators marched to a sports complex where about 2,000 of the migrants are being housed. There, held back by a wall of riot police, they denounced the mostly Honduran migrants as “criminals” and “freeloaders” who were openly flouting Mexican law.

“This is an invasion!” shouted local carpenter Luis Alexis Mendoza, according to the Los Angeles Times. “We demand respect. We demand that our laws be followed.”

Are Democratic lawmakers and liberal cable news hosts taking any note of this?

The media is already labeling this as a tiny fringe of extremists and racists. Because, you know, people of Latin heritage can still be racists against other people of Latin heritage……or something. Not sure how that works. I guess borders DO count when you want to define origin only for the purposes of using the tired phrase “racist”. So a person of similar heritage in Mexico can now be “racist” against a similar heritage person from Guatemala. Once that is done, we can now begin to ignore borders again….

    “Not sure how that works.”

    Do you actually know any Mexicans or people from Central American or South American countries? You’ll sometimes hear some of the most virulent racism between the various groups… Mexicans for example will quite often look down on and discriminate against Guatamalans. There are different indigenous groups with their own histories, mixed in with the Spanish colonialists, etc. They may all “look the same” to you, but they’re not.

    Asians like to get in on the racist action too. You should hear how Thai talk about Vietnamese. The Japanese are the most racist people on earth. Heck, even African Americans will “cast shade” on actual Africans, and on black people of the wrong “tone” of black for that matter.

    Racism exists everywhere. I’m all on board with efforts to minimize it, but first we have to all agree that racism is not something limited to white people.

      Um, I lived in Mexico City for a little less than 6 months in the late 1990s. Granted, I was a business ex-pat and we were living in a provided and furnished place. But we still lived a normal life.

      Not sure if I can tell you’ve 100% bought into the “new” definition of racism, or not. But given what you say, I assume these circumstances fit your definition as well: In my formative years we lived in MA. About the time in entered middle school, we moved to GA. The things yankees and southerners said about each I guess is now racism, ignoring of course ethnicity and DNA. Later in life I worked for a global company with significant European operations and a head office in The Netherlands. In negotiating deals in France and Switzerland, all kinds of things were intimated or said about the, well, “miserly” and “aggressive” negotiating tactics the Dutch are known for on that continent. I guess that, too, is now racist, ignoring of course ethnicity and DNA.

      Borders are now the defining line for what used to be immutable human factors like race, eh?

        No, I’m not talking about borders. I’m talking about race and ethnicity. As I noted before, “mestizo” Mexicans will often discriminate against indigenous Mayan people from Guatemala (and other places). Japanese are a distinct ethnic group from other Asians, and as I said before, they are (generally speaking) the most racist people on earth.

        I don’t buy into much progressive thinking, but I’m not sure exactly what you’re referring to here. The “new” prog thinking regarding racism that I am aware of is the preposterous idea that racism requires both “prejudice plus power” which is a typically dense prog attempt at pinning the evils of racism on whitey only.

        That’s really the only point I was trying to make; that racism (or to be more precise, ethnically-based prejudice) exists everywhere. Stop trying to tell me I’m the only bad-guy in the room and I’ll be a lot more open to dialogue about how to fix the problem.

          In my time in Mexico, there was a clear culture war between Hispanics with European ancestry and those with more clearly native ancestry such as Aztec or Comanche or perhaps even Zapotec. In that sense it was rightfully deemed racist in most circles. But most North American natives have surprisingly similar DNA with a few exceptions.

          But even if we now accept that people with Aztec ancestry criticizing those with Mayan ancestry or people with Seminole ancestry criticizing those with Mashantucket Pequot ancestry is an act of racism, I’m still not buying the cry about what is happening in Tijuana. Unless there is some evidence that known Aztecs were identifying and shunning known Mayans within the hoards, it is a bogus accusation. It’s a cultural clash. Not a racist one.

          All of this is beside the actual point – Is what they are saying about the “migrants” in the “caravan” true or not? If it’s true, it doesn’t matter if they are racists.

        I lived in northern Italy as a kid. Europeans do use the term race when we would use nationality. On the other hand, people moved slowly through the landscape, and it was normal up until modern times for one’s family to have been in one area for generations, so that groups were said to have distinct habits and even looks. They take that for race. (Leave it to an American to bring up DNA tests! What counts are opinions, shared knowledge, and group cohesion.)

          PS – The ones who are unique are us, the Americans. Great amount of movement of various people, all facing common danger in pursuit of one goal (land). Emphasis on the individual, as opposed to the group that individual was born into, and great enthusiasm to form a new group in their new circumstances. I don’t think any of this was true in Europe. Note that Germany, post WWII, repatriated a lot of ethnic Germans from the Baltics, as Germans were no longer welcome there. The Germans never lost their ethnicity. A friend’s family was forced out of Egypt after being there for generations, and returned to Greece. They had never lost their Greek identity. And Russia now claims oversight of Baltics, Belarussia, and even the Ukraine, based on the number of ethnic Russians living in those terratories. There is a danger in ethnic diversity when assimmilation is not enforced.

    You don’t seem to be aware of the Maya. They look different. It is normal for different populations to actually look different. That comes from hundreds of years of living in the same general area, mating with the same people. The indigenous Indian tribes did not cooperate. Certainly, the highest status goes to people with legitimate Spanish blood. They are quite proud of that. There is a lot your college didn’t teach you.

      As a matter of fact, as a teacher of English for speakers of other languages, I have taught indigenous Mexican and Central American students. Some of my Guatemalan students, on figuring out that they won’t be scorned for being “indio” or “indigena”, admitted to having Ixil or Kakchiquel as their first languages rather than Spanish; and some of the Mexican kids spoke of family members who prefered to use Nahuatl dialects.

Well okay then. So now I know why the media was not reporting on the caravan movements north.

Still no word on those 2,400 tired and exhausted left in the sports complex in Mexico City. Or on the 100 missing women and children that Ann Coulter mentioned.

Human trafficking for cheap labor and the sex trade. Nothing noble or humane about it.

These same people were cheering the invasion when they were just marching through. But once they start sticking around and their true character emerges, they suddenly turn into “white nationalists”. Where is the concern over “the innocent children” now?

It’s like when ISIS was marching through parts of the ME and Turkey to crowds of locals cheering. There is no more cheering today there either.

Wait until the migrants start taking jobs that Mexicans won’t do at wages even Mexicans won’t accept.

Mexicans know an invasion when they feel one. Their government is in on it too.

Trump has won this one for now. The reason Jim Acosta got so excited about the word “invasion” is that it allows Trump to defend our border.

Trump seems to know how to get the Soros crowd to do his bidding. First, they pay for a caravan that allows him to call it an invasion which gives Trump three things:

1. Ability to use military at border;
2. Inspire Mexican participation for a solution;
3. Forces press to provide visual scope of problem.

Now Trump plays them again. We NEED the workers. Trump even stated that during the Acosta circus. There must be tremendous pressure on Trump to allow the underpaid labor through. The SF judge is helping Trump by taking some of the steam out of the kettle and allowing workers through – but not until they have been vetted for criminal records (at least 500 so far), vaccinated and documented.

What’s not to like?

    Military at the border is useless without actually repelling these invaders. Since they aren’t, presumably at Trump’s direction, this is all kabuki theater.

    “We NEED the workers”

    No, we don’t. American blacks need work at good wages more than Mexican invaders need work here at crap wages. Keep them out.

And just like that, Mexicans are racists. Heh.

Emigration reform.

Immigration should not exceed the rate of assimilation and integration before Planned Parenthood and other cover-ups (e.g. labor arbitrage, social justice adventures).

“We demand respect. We demand that our laws be followed”

Hypocrites. Where is Mexican respect for US law?

Since the USA is supposedly a racist and exploitive society where these migrants will be relegated to the bottom of the social heap, why aren’t the progs also calling for the organizers of these caravans to be arrested and tried for human trafficking?
