Members of the so-called “migrant caravan” are now demanding that the U.S.A. pay them $50,000 each to turn around and go home.
According to reports, activists supposedly representing the illegal aliens have made the demand during a rally outside the U.S. consulate in Mexico on Tuesday.
The first group of about 100 migrants appeared outside the consulate around 11am on Tuesday.
According to the Daily Mail:
Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the $50,000 figure is not a very big sum.
“It may seem like a lot of money to you,” he said.
“But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”
Thanks to this amount, he said, the migrants could return home and start a small business there.
And get this… then they demanded that the U.S.A. remove Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez from office.
So, not only do they want us to give them billions of dollars for free, but they want us to start killing off foreign leaders all on their say so.
If this isn’t arrogance, what is?
To compound the arrogance, they then warned the U.S. that it has 72 hours to bow to their demands!
I am sure that the Trump administration is just going to ignore these arrogant demands, as well they should. But, imagine the hubris of all this!
