GETTY: Border Patrol Agent Rick Grimes looks tired as diseased horde presses against crappy chainlink fence behind him.
I have little confidence in the Mexican ability to test this group for health problems, and I suspect that numbers are actually higher than this.
Furthermore, the 35% with health problems probably doesn’t overlap much at all with the 10% who are known criminals. Criminals tend to be more virile.
Tijuana’s Health Department is warning that migrants who came with the caravan are suffering from respiratory infections, tuberculosis, chickenpox and other serious health issues.
The spokesman told Fox News that out of 6,000 migrants currently residing in the city, over a third of them (2,267) are being treated for health-related issues.
There are three confirmed cases of tuberculosis, four cases of HIV/AIDS and four separate cases of chickenpox, the spokesman said.
At least 101 migrants have lice and multiple instances of skin infections, the department’s data shows.
There’s also a threat of Hepatitis outbreak due to unsanitary conditions, the spokesman said. The thousands of migrants are being sheltered at the Benito Juarez Sports Complex near the San Ysidro U. S. -Mexico Port of Entry, despite the place is capable of providing for 1,000 people.
The location also has only 35 portable bathrooms. A sign reading “No Spitting” was put up as coughing and spitting by migrants is rampant in the shelter.
Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum said Tuesday that the city has enough money to assist the migrants only for a few more days, with the city saying it’s spending around $30,000 a day.
“We won’t compromise the resources of the residents of Tijuana,” Gastelum said during a press conference. “We won’t raise taxes tomorrow to pay for today’s problem.”
Yeah, the federal government of Mexico is refusing to financially assist Tijuana with these hordes, which shows that they really were not prepared for this situation at all.
We all remember when they barely made an effort to pretend that they were trying to stop these people from crossing their Southern border, and then police and other Mexican government officials actually helped them move across the country toward Tijuana.
Presumably, Mexico simply assumed that America would crack and let these people through, and they view that as beneficial to their overall agenda.
It is very much a reflection of the 2015 migrant crisis, when Erdogan facilitated the flooding of Europe with various groups of Moslems, mainly from Afghanistan and Pakistan. He had no love for these people, but figures – rightly so – that more Moslems in Europe is good for all Moslems in the world. It also gave him a way to hold the EU hostage and demand money from them to stop the flow, which they eventually paid.
Erdogan had a well-oiled machine to move migrants into camps and then send them off in waves to Greece.
Mexico is effectively doing the exact same thing, they are just much less competent. To be fair, Erdogan is arguably the single most competent actor on the global stage. But at the very least, Mexico could have been prepared to set up a camp for these people on the border.
Instead, they are in crisis and now doing the Erdogan move of demanding money from white people to house the migrants. But they are in a state of crisis, and the US border authority is able to repel a large scale rush on the border, which Europe was incapable of doing, so they are in a much worse bargaining position due to their lack of planning.
The only thing Mexico can really do at this point is encourage the “migrants” to rush the border and hope someone dies, which will then enable American Jews to demand the border simply be opened up. And I fear that President Trump would crack in the instance of pictures of dead bodies, just like he cracked over complaints of migrant children crying in cages.
But right now, the tear gas defense has worked, and may continue to work. Presumably there is a number of migrants that could overwhelm the tear gas defense, however. Obviously if it was tens of thousands, the border forces would be forced to either stand-down or use lethal force. It’s not clear which they would do, or which would be better for them to do, politically.
I have no idea how the American people would respond to pictures and video of American forces opening fire with live ammo on the border. Americans are so soft, and so easily manipulated with emotionally charged imagery. I just don’t know.
This all would have been prevented by a wall.
