I was wondering when someone in the cartels was going to see that opportunity.

I heard last week that these people woldn't get past Culiacan.

The last I heard the caravan was down the road from where I am which is past Culiacan, so I am not sure if they actually did what they said they were going to do.

I never posted it, but I was always wondering if the cartels were going to take advantage of all this free-for-the-taking unarmed slave labor walking past their front yards.
Surely someone would have told them some areas are like the tribal areas in Pakistan. The only law there is the tribal (cartel) leader?

On the outskirts of Culiacan it is completely cartel controlled.

We were told while driving through there to roll our windows down because if we didn't they would think we were trying to hide who we were and open fire.

At least you know the rules.
I am sure you could write a book when you get back.
I would buy it.

I wonder if the Mexican government will charge anyone with Human Trafficking that assists the people that are in charge of these groups of people?

trump and his minions have done everything in their power to stoke fear and to misinform Americans about the true nature of this "dreaded" caravan. trump and the caravan are therefore inseparable as components of this horror/myth.

What do you consider misinformation in this case?

Do you know why this hoard is on the way to the US?

If you want to deny reality, then go ahead.

Thousands of migrants are in Mexico and only a few visas have been issued.

All the rest are in Mexico illegally. To say it another way, they are criminals. You would know this is you read the first link.

We will see when they reach the US border how many are not from the two named countries.

By the way, Guatemala itself said they have deported Arabs back to their country, so it is not a stretch to think they are traveling with the caravan.

There was no misinformation where any of that was concerned.

You wouldn't care anyway if there was Arabs with the caravan, would you?

It's obvious that he doesn't, but I'm still expecting a well attempted lie none the less.

There at the door, throwing rocks, call the US military ! Since a week ago, Trump sure has been quiet on this issue. I guess he is too busy licking his wounds from the GOP House loss.

Maybe because a week ago Trump was blowing the dog whistle loud and clear for his supporters, now not so much. Its totally relevant, or it was until last Tuesday.

They are making their way through Mexico with the help of many federal officials.

This is an interesting read.

https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/migrant-caravan-splits-after-leaving-mexico-city/

There are a lot of agencies...from a lot of different places...supporting the mobs. The primary organization is that Soros-funded Pueblo Sin Fronteras. Millions of dollars being spent to get these people to the US border.


The sad thing, for those people being used by leftist political organizations, is that most of them will be refused asylum into the US. Will those organizations help them settle in Mexico? Will they help them get back to their home countries?

btw, where's all the women and children? Most of the people in that video are men.

You don't care that you're being lied to by our president because it accomplishes your goals - keeping rural white people terrified into supporting your broken political party. Open your eyes.

The apparent impetus for this outrage was a segment on Fox News that morning that detailed a migrant caravan thousands of miles away in Honduras. The caravan, which began sometime in mid-October, is made up of refugees fleeing violence in their home country. Over the next few weeks, Trump did his best to turn the caravan into a national emergency. Trump falsely told his supporters that there were “criminals and unknown Middle Easterners” in the caravan, a claim that had no basis in fact and that was meant to imply that terrorists were hiding in the caravan—one falsehood placed on another. Defense Secretary James Mattis ordered more troops to the border. A Fox News host took it upon herself to ask Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen whether there was “any scenario under which if people force their way across the border they could be shot at,” to which Nielsen responded, “We do not have any intention right now to shoot at people.”

If you're part of the propaganda machine you're part of the problem.

I don't give a **** what Trump says.

I am in Mexico not the US.

I am not being lied to by anybody.

There are stories here about the hoard that have nothing to do with Trump. I know that is hard for you to believe, but there is a real, world out there that does not revolve around what Trump tweets.
