We definitely have a love-hate relationship with Mexico and once again we find a Mexican government taking actions to help hundreds of illegal aliens to break our laws and sneak across our border. This time the Mexican government went out of its way to sends dozens of busses to cart 1,700 illegals to a lightly guarded part of our border to help them surge 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 the Mexican government claiming that it wanted to end illegal immigration both in their own nation and ours.
In the last few days thousands of illegals began assembling at Coahuila but instead of deporting them, officials there decided to charter the 49 busses to pawn off these lawbreakers onto the U.S.A.
The officials there first set up a series of shelters for the illegals. But soon they moved on to “other” things.
Riquelme ordered that state police forces travel with the caravan to the cities of Piedras Negras and Acuna to ensure their safety. Piedras Negras is immediately south of Eagle Pass, Texas, while Ciudad Acuna is immediately south of Del Rio, Texas. As Breitbart News reported, both cities lack any form of physical barrier other than the ports of entry.
Breitbart went on:
In Coahuila, private companies provided 49 buses at the request of the government to move the migrants in a safe and efficient manner. The buses are funded by local businessmen and municipal governments, said Coahuila Secretary of State Jose Maria Frausto Siller in an interview with Vanguardia.
That was the solution that our “friends” in Mexico devised to sole their illegal problem.
This is bad enough, but once the illegal criminals who haven’t come yet realize what Coahuila just did, that will become a destination for more of them. Coahuila started with 1,700 illegals. But they just invited tens of thousands.
