    Caravan of 2,000 migrants detained in southern Mexico

    I wonder how much longer Mexico can/will continue with help regarding immigrants...

    Mexican officials broke up a caravan of around 2,000 migrants that had set out from southern Mexico Saturday in the hopes of reaching the United States, amid increasing difficulty obtaining permission to pass through Mexico.
    Many of the migrants who departed from Tapachula, Chiapas early in the morning had been held up in this city just north of Guatemala for weeks or months, awaiting residency or transit papers from Mexican authorities. The migrants are originally from Central America, Africa and the Caribbean...https://abcnews.go.com/International...exico-66233097

    Every roadblock helps. We've got about 13 more months of this BS before we can shut it down for good. After we elect Republicans and take back the house, they better get the job done.

    I suggest a firing squad for the coup plotters, and any Republican who refuses to close down the border. Once Trump is re-elected, Republican's had damned well better start doing their jobs.

    Trump was talking about this at his latest rally(s) and giving major kudos to the Mexican military.

    There are far fewer "loyal" Republicans than you think.

    If you had gone back 12 years ago, that would have been almost half of them.


    Why do you think Trump met with so much resistance even when the Republicans controlled the House?


    A few of them have been coming around though, in the aftermath of the Recession, and waking up to the fact that if something is not done to reverse course, the other party could soon become permanently entrenched.

    I think the only thing getting them to cooperate with Trump on the border is knowing the Democrats have the majority in the House and they need him now more than ever. It's very paradoxical. Took the Dem's gaining a slight majority to get anything done on the border.
    Trump was able to foresee all this, if anyone listened to his remarks, somewhat cryptic at the time, when the Republicans lost the House. Now we can see why he didn't seem to be phased. It was time to switch into plan B and start exerting some leverage on the frightened Repubs.

    "I told you the economy was going to tank under Trump". "Yeah you did. Pre Pandemic". "It was going to tank even without the Pandemic". "Uh-huh. Trumps economy was hitting it out of the park Pre Pandemic." <---My cut and paste time saving signature - for all the doom and gloom predictors who will try to rewrite history.
