An ungrateful Honduran Migrant complains about the free beans and tortillas being served in Tijuana, Mexico.
According to the Spanish translation of her answer: “The truth is, the food that they’re handing out here is terrible,” the woman complained while holding up the food platter. “Look at what they’re giving us. Refried beans, as if they were feeding the pigs. And the truth is, we don’t have any other options. If we don’t eat this, we will die of hunger.”
She sounds grateful…
Six thousand Central American migrants have encamped in Tijuana, Mexico, waiting to enter the United States, legally or illegally.
The migrants are part of a thousands-strong migrant caravan that originated in Honduras. The caravan reached the American border with the assistance of charter buses and are now camped in Tijuana with no place to go as they apply for asylum at the American ports of entry.
President Donald Trump, who made the migrant caravan a critical part of the 2018 midterms messaging for the GOP, has hardened the southern border with armed soldiers and razor wire.
Deutsche Welle’s Spanish language channel, DW Español, traveled to Tijuana in order to interview some of the migrants living in the camps. A reporter asked one of the migrants how the living conditions were in the camp. The woman complained about the food she had been given in the camp, calling it food for “pigs” and saying she would “die of hunger” if she did not eat it. More
What else was she expecting to get for free? She should be grateful she’s getting anything at all. Thousands of American citizens would be happy to have free beans and tortillas. If she doesn’t like the free food, she should head home and prepare her own dinner.
The ingratitude of this woman to me epitomizes the whole ugly situation and charade of these so-called needy invaders.
She calls refried beans pig food. You won’t like the food here, either. I like refried beans. https://t.co/9vCrmAdJlF
