The new president of Mexico sure seems to have a better grasp on immigration and the border crisis in general. He sure seems to care more about it than the Democrats do.
Recently, Mexico shut down a shelter that was housing the caravan.
MEXICO closed a migrant shelter in Tijuana, near the border with the US, sparking protests from caravan trying to enter America.
A two-story warehouse in a zone known for crime and prostitution near the US border was closed on Friday, with Tijuana officials citing sanitation as the reason why. Isain Venegas, a supervisor in Mexico’s public health system, said the shelter was overcrowded, poorly lit and lacked proper facilities for food preparation.
Federal police took steps to close a migrant shelter in Mexico’s city of Tijuana on Friday, sparking protests from some of the dozens of U.S.-bound people who had been staying there after traveling in a caravan from Central America.
The arrival of several thousand migrants in recent months, many fleeing poverty and violence in Honduras, has challenged Mexico’s new president to make good on pledges to protect migrants in Mexico, just as the United States makes it increasingly hard for them to cross the border.
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who began his presidency last month, has yet to detail how he will improve what he has described as deplorable conditions for people trekking thousands of miles across Mexico to the U.S. border.
Mexico doesn’t owe this caravan anything. Mexico should look out for Mexico and the Mexican people.
