Mexican policeman scolds caravaners who ‘put children at the front’

    The policeman had heard some of the migrants instruct the rest of the mostly adults to put the children at the front before the border attack and decides to step in to stop them.

    “You know the US put a very big fence, it’s full of military —no, no, allow me, let me speak, I want you to listen because these are human beings, there are kids, and something could happen to the kids.

    “It’s not your children’s fault, they didn’t want to come here, you brought them here.

    “So there’s two things. One, the gringos [white Americans] have everything militarized. Another: at the moment you get there, they’ll close the border and all the people that was going to cross to the other side will get stuck, and what will happen? Violence.

    “Allow me, let me finish speaking.

    “There’s going to be violence and you’ll hurt your chances of entering. There’s cameras and everyone there is getting recorded by the Americans.

    “Besides, you’re risking your families, because I heard one of you saying ‘put the children at the front’ and that is not manly, how would we put our children at the front? It’s not their fault, you have to be reasonable.”

    Not only human traffickers, but also a MS-13 gang member who had planned on entering the US with the caravan, was arrested over the weekend by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

    The member of the notorious drug gang, known for beheadings, told authorities that he traveled within the Central American migrant caravan to the United States, Fox News reported.

    The man, a 29-year-old Honduran citizen, was apprehended by US agents at the Calexico Port of Entry in southern California on Sunday.

    It appears that he is an active gang member with the notorious Mara Salvatrucha 13 (MS-13) gang. The man also told agents that he intended applying for asylum in the United States.

    “As President Trump and Secretary Nielsen warned, over the last few weeks we have identified over 600 known criminals and gang members in the caravan,” the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement to Fox.

    “We are now predictably seeing members of the caravan — which includes criminals – show up at the border and claim asylum. These threats are only going to increase in light of illegitimate judicial injunctions and loopholes created by Congress.”

    President Trump warned in late October that there were “definitely” MS-13 members and terrorists arriving with the caravan.

    Since mid-October, between 12 000 and 14 000 migrants have passed through the Guatemalan and Mexican borders heading to the US. While most are from Honduras, increasing numbers are joining from Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador – including a number of children under the age of five.

    According to the UN, some 100 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons (LGBTI) are also travelling with the caravan.

    “UN experts” have raised the alarm over “racist and xenophobic language, and US border control”, which they say, ignores “international human rights, equality and non-discrimination standards”.

    They accused the US of “fueling a climate of intolerance, racial hatred and xenophobia” against the migrant caravan.

    “This has detrimental effects on the right to mental health not only of migrants,” the UN said in a statement and it was an “incitement to hatred and discrimination in the political and public sphere”.

    The UN also argued that “threats to cut aid to the countries of origin of the migrants is counterproductive, as this may only worsen the living conditions from which these migrants were fleeing in the first place”.
