Mexico issues transit visas to surge of African migrants

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican immigration authorities say 424 migrants from African countries arrived at the southern state of Chiapas over two days last week.

The National Immigration Institute said Tuesday that it has issued them 20-day transit visas that will allow the migrants to reach the U.S.-Mexico border, where they plan to request asylum.

Officials call it an unusual surge and say most of the migrants first went to Brazil or Ecuador to start their journey through Latin America.

Mexico isn't staisfied with just mexicans illegaly entering another country?
Now, in what I would call a provocative and "in your face" move, openly allows other nations to come to their country with the specific intent to enter the U.S. for asylum?
Anyone think the wall isn't a great idea??

How can a transit visa be issued with an ultimate destination for which there is no proof of legal entry? I smell money changing hands.

Hopefully Trump looked the Mexican President right in the eye and spoke of this.. it's almost an act of war.
