Remember the caravan of migrants from Honduras making its way from Central America through Mexico?
Well, they’re here.
And reports are that at least a dozen of them successfully scaled the fence near the border gate between Tijuana and San Diego as supporters on the US side cheered them on.
Mexico refused to stop the horde of 1,500 migrants, but President Trump has already ordered National Guard to the border.
Which is probably why the entire caravan hasn’t already waltzed across. As we reported previously, this could be a blessing in disguise.
There’s little better than wall-to-wall coverage of massive illegal immigration to kick up the ire of American voters in favor of a wall.
Here’s more from Daily Caller…
The caravan of migrants from Central America seeking asylum in the U.S. has arrived at the border, and some people associated with the group have already been caught scaling the border fences.
“Several groups of people associated with the Central American caravan” illegally entered the U.S. “by climbing over the dilapidated scrap metal border fence on either side of the San Ysidro Port of Entry,” Rodney S. Scott, chief of the Border Patrol in the San Diego sector, which sits just north of Tijuana, told reporters Saturday.
He said the migrants included “children as young as 4 years old and in one case a pregnant female.” He called it “unconscionable that anyone would expose a child to these dangerous conditions.”
Five busloads of migrants were escorted Sunday through Tijuana to a cross-border rally near San Diego, where supporters gathered on both sides of the fence, The Associated Press reports. Images from the rally show apparent migrants from the Mexican side sitting atop the border wall proudly waving what appears to be the Honduran flag, the banner of the country from which many of the migrants are trying to flee.
