Meanwhile, a small group of Central American migrants marched to a border crossing on Thursday to demand better conditions in shelters housing them.

The group of about 150 migrants carrying white flags that read, “La Paz y Dios” or “Peace and God” separated from the larger caravan and inched within 500 feet from the U.S., the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Thursday. More

It’s clear now that Central American immigrants in the caravan aren’t seeking asylum. They just want jobs in the US because they rejected asylum and jobs from Mexico. They believe that they have a right to illegally enter the US to get jobs here.

Get them to the border and then claim that it’s a humanitarian crisis, insert United Nations and then demand that the United States take their ‘fair share.’ Did anyone else see this coming? Please comment below and let us know your thoughts.
