Under pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump, Mexico has arrested nearly 400 illegal immigrants from Central America who were forming yet another illegal “migrant caravan.”
Mexican authorities arrested hundreds of illegals from Guatemala and Honduras in the south Mexico town of Pijijiapan. The illegals were marching through Mexico on the way to the United States to illegally enter our country.
According to the Daily Wire:
Raids continued throughout the day on Monday, with immigrants reporting they were being “hunted” by immigration officials and targeted for deportation back to Central America.
Mexican authorities also arrested a large number of illegals last week near the Mexican town of Mapastepec, a town just northwest of the border with Guatemala.
For months, Trump has been railing that Mexico isn’t doing enough to stop these so-called “migrant caravans” from traveling through Mexico.
However, even as he slams Mexico, Trump did claim that Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has promised to do more. Well, so far, two mass arrests have occurred.
Mexico also noted that it has drastically cut the number of visas it awards to supposed asylum seekers and has reported the deportation back to central America some 11,800 illegals in April alone.
Still, Mexico says it isn’t just responding to Trump but also to its own citizens. Millions of Mexicans are getting sick and tired of tens of thousands of illegals roaming around leaving garbage, spreading diseases, and using billions in social services.
Mexican citizens have about had it with these rapacious illegals.
Haven’t we all?
