Mexican Governor Now Warning Migrant Caravaners to Stay Away from His City


After the Mexican Governor of Coahuila bussed nearly 2,000 illegal immigrants to a lightly guarded part of the U.S. border to let them sneak into the U.S., he is now warning other migrant caravans to stay away.

“In the case of the state government, we will not allow more migrants to travel to Coahuila,” Gov. Miguel Riquelme told reporters, according to Fox News.

Riquelme added that he does not have the power to stop illegals from crossing Mexico’s southern border, but he does control the area of his border with the U.S. and he does not want any more illegal migrant caravaners coming to Coahuila.

A multi-agency force that includes federal, state and local law enforcement has partnered with Coahuila’s Mexican Army and military police to keep all the migrants housed while they process temporary asylum claims.

Out of nearly 2,000, only 139 migrants have obtained their official cards that will allow them to leave the shelter and travel freely throughout Mexico.

Riquelme says that the operation is for the security of his region.

The Security Secretary for Coahuila, Jose Luis Pliego Corona, wants Americans to know that they are doing everything possible to identify and remove any criminal threat in this group.

All this sounds great… except… officials in Coahuila recently chartered 49 busses to transport 1,700 illegals to a lightly guarded part of the U.S. border to help them sneak into the U.S.

The story comes from the excellent border coverage by Breitbart News:

Coahuila officials deployed 49 private buses and dozens of police vehicles to help transport and safeguard more than 1,700 migrants to an unsecured part of the Texas border. The caravan recently departed from Honduras.

This comes on the heels of not only Gov. Miguel Riquelme but the whole national Mexican government claiming that it wanted to end illegal immigration both in their own nation and ours.

As you can see, they constantly talk out of both sides of their mouths.
