Migrants in Caravan Reject Mexico’s Offer for Help, Heading to U.S. Instead

Mexico’s government unveiled a plan to provide employment, health care, and education to thousands of Central American migrants who are part of the caravan that is traveling from Honduras towards the U.S border.

This week, Mexico’s government unveiled their plan called “Estas En Tu Casa” or “You Are in Your Home.” The program provides the migrants with temporary employment, access to government-funded health care, and education for their children. The migrants who take part in the program will be employed in the cleaning and maintenance of public buildings and roads. As Breitbart News has reported, thousands of migrants from Honduras are making their way into Mexico in an effort to reach the U.S. Border. The caravan has caused international tension as the U.S. government threatened to remove international aid to Central America if the caravan is not stopped.

In order to take part in the program, the migrants and their families must be in the country legally and reach out to immigration authorities who will sign them up. The program will only be available in the southern Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca. Those who are part of the caravan and entered the country illegally will be given time to begin the immigration process and must follow Mexico’s immigration law.


UPDATE October 27, 9:20 CDT: Members of the migrant caravan from Honduras rejected Mexico’s offer of asylum, jobs, and benefits on Saturday, CBS and the Associated Press reported.

Thank you but no was the response from a group of migrants in Arriaga, Mexico. “No, we’re heading north.”

Another migrant, 58-year-old Oscar Sosa, told the reporters, “Our goal is not to remain in Mexico. Our goal is to make it to the (U.S). We want passage, that’s all.”

Use Military and form skirmish lines used in riot control and not let them through. Use gas and high pitched sonic sound to drive them back. That way you don't have to arrest anybody. Just drag the down ones back across the border and put them in a heap. They are a bunch of all male thugs invading the US.

Doesn't this violate international laws of Asylum? Aren't you supposed to ask for Asylum in the 1st. country you get to when fleeing a conflict?
If I am right, Trump can refuse them entry and Asylum.

God I hope I am right, or somehow this invasion starts killing, and raping each other and don't get here.
