I’m done calling this a migrant caravan.
This is a migrant mob invasion!
Just watch as they break down the border fence and pour into Mexico:
Good grief. Trump is right. It’s time to get the military on the border because this mob can’t be allowed to succeed. These people clearly are not trying to enter the country peacefully. If they will do this to Mexico, they will try and do this here.
And we should offer Mexico assistance if they request help at repelling this mob.
This cannot be allowed to continue.
Here’s more from the AP on what’s happened since they broke through this fence:
The head of Mexico’s federal police says that they have achieved their first objective of preventing a violent breach of the border by some 3,000 migrants trying to enter from Guatemala.
Manelich Castilla told Foro TV the migrants will enter in an orderly fashion.
“It will be under the conditions that have been said since the start: orderly, with established procedures, never through violence nor by force,” Castilla said from the Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo.
Police deployed pepper spray after some migrants tried to push their way through the Mexican side.
Some migrants are now forming lines on the bridge while others are sitting down and preparing for a long wait.
Central American migrants in a mass caravan have clashed with Mexican riot police guarding a border post on the country’s southern frontier.
About 50 migrants managed to push their way through. The rest retreated after officers unleashed pepper spray. Some in the caravan threw rocks.
After police held off the migrants, they closed the border gates again.
A federal police officer used a loudspeaker to address the masses, saying: “We need you to stop the aggression.”
