Migrants Attempt Extortion: Give Us $50K, and We’ll Leave

money poverty policy migrants extortionIn what might be the most obnoxious, humorous, and yet embarrassing demand on a sovereign country ever, migrants in Tijuana marched on the U.S. consulate to demand either entry or payment to go home.

This proves again that the migrants are not running from violence or drug gangs or anything else, a tall tale the leftist media has peddled on their behalf.

They marched north for jobs and welfare in the United States, and now, having found that they simply aren’t going to march across the border unimpeded to press phony asylum claims, are demanding money to go home.

Some might call that extortion.

Two Letters

Two groups of marching mendicants went to the consulate on Tuesday, the San Diego Union Tribune reported, “demanding that they be processed through the asylum system more quickly and in greater numbers, that deportations be halted and that President Trump either let them into the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home.”

The migrants delivered their imperious demand in writing. “When asked how the group came up with the $50,000 figure, organizer Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa of Honduras, said they chose that number as a group,” the newspaper reported.

Yet again, we learn that the migrants have an “organizer,” which belies the impression that the march was a spontaneous eruption of poor campesinos running for their lives, but in any event Ulloa said $50,000 isn’t all that much money. “It may seem like a lot of money to you,” he told the newspaper. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”

Ulloa didn’t explain what the United States has “stolen from Honduras,” but the story then gets even better, as unintentionally amusing journalism goes:

The group’s letter criticized American intervention in Central America. They gave the U.S. Consulate 72 hours to respond. They said they had not decided what to do if their demands were not met.

“I don’t know, we will decide as a group,” Ulloa said.

The letter claimed that the migrants are “families, women and children, the majority of which are young men who are fleeing from poverty, insecurity and political repression under the dictatorship of Juan Orlando Hernandez.”

The migrants expect the United States to kick him out of office.

Why the migrants would return so quickly to such a benighted country Ulloa apparently did not explain.

And then the newspaper reported an even larger demand for money: “Getting $55,000 for each of the caravan members, Ulloa said, might allow them to go back home and start a small business.”

The second group that marched on the embassy, led by the leftist subversives of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, put their demands in writing, too. The open-borders group, which aims to break down the border with Mexico, “helped organize the delivery of the second letter.”

It demanded that U.S. officials let 300 illegal aliens per day cross the border to press fake asylum claims. U.S. officials are processing 100 per day now.

Alarming Statistic

The migrants, the Union-Tribune observed, have been squatting in Tijuana for a month now. About 700 have gone home, 300 have been deported and 2,500 have applied for humanitarian visas.

The newspaper reported that 3,500 are unaccounted for and “presumed to have either crossed illegally into the United States, moved to other Mexican border cities, or simply fallen through the cracks.”

The migrants, a third of whom are diseased and about 10 percent of whom are criminals, have been sneaking under, through, and over the border. They know, as The New American reported on Tuesday, that once in the country they can probably stay indefinitely, if not forever.

But, more importantly, the report in the Union-Tribune confirms what TNA has reported almost since the caravan mounted up to ride on October 12. The migrants are not seeking asylum. They want jobs. The migrants themselves have told reporters the truth. A survey of thousands who attempted to get into the country proved it.

And now, they say, give us $50,000 apiece, and we’ll return home. Sadly enough, that might be cheaper than rewarding them with asylum given the public services and welfare they will receive once in the United States.

Tell them to go home and change their own country! Don’t give them a D*** thing! This may sound harsh but I’m sick of these people, who aren’t citizens of this country thinking that we owe them something!!! We don’t!!! Selfishness is everywhere these days!!!!

Drue

A 50 cent rubber bullet in the butt would help send them home.

Ron Smith

Tell them to go get the money From George S or Obama! They have been fronting them all along! We’re did there buses come from or there water, food & tents? They don’t have any money! So we have enough free loaders form their Country now! Go home get some college edu. & training then come knocking at our door!Ron

Wayne Peterkin

A clear demonstration of the character, or lack thereof, of those wanting to crash our border. They make the case for sealing them out better than I could. Sadly, I wouldn’t be surprised if morons like Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez actually supported paying them!

Angela

How dare they demand money from us…money that will come from our taxes. They were probably told to do this because they won’t be punished; we can’t offend them. But, we as American citizens, don’t dare do such a thing. Imagine if one of us made such a demand…in the loony bin they’d put us. If some govt. moron decides to give them money, there will really be a revolution in this country and many of the fighters will be us oldies, who havene’t received a COLA for several years. The caravan people are not starving, looking for jobs or anything else. They’ve been goaded to this march by the leftists. The caravan people came to destroy America. Believe that. Nancy, Chuck,Maxine don’t want them as next door neighbors, not even sit-ins on their lawns. Come on, let’s grow up and stop pretending we can’t offend people. Some people need… Read more »

Showing their true colors!

Diane

And next year, they will return with even more people and demand $100,00. per person.

The imagrants are getting a bit brassy===I believe in imagration the legal way only…. greet these greedy pilfers at the border with some lead and the rest will get the message.. and the ones here illegal need to camp out an all the democrats homes.. let them feed them and take care of them… sure that would not last

Glenn Lego

I wouldn’t give them 50 cents. But they could give them some lead in their rear end.

Paul

To Hell! With the lot of them.
No money! No access! Go Back Home!
The options are suffer the consequences for invading the US Homeland. The American People are determined to defend our Country.

Larry Ralston

TO THE EXTREME LEFT RANK AND FILE; 1. Name a country on the planet Earth that DOES NOT have borders. 2. How is that working out for those countries? 3. B. Obama, H. Clinton, C. Schumer, you folks supported border protection a few years ago–you are even on tape stating such (I just watched it). To those of you who do not support the border security wall–protecting citizens of the U. S. FROM ILLEGAL ALIENS is of NO CONSEQUENCE. Successfully stopping our President from building that wall only because his name is Donald Trump will absolutely have NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES on the citizen of the United States regardless of the name of the state in which we live. 4. Bluedog Democrats, are you comfortable with the socialistic direction your leadership is taking your party?

Barbara

I would send them to live all around Nancy Pelosi’s house, Diane Feinstein’s home, Maxine Waters and George S many homes!

Anthony Green

Get rid of these pieces of shi_

Albert J. Evans

Instead of gold offer them a serving of hot lead.

Don Cook

Let’s give them their $50 in precious metals. LEAD!

D.T.

Do not let those murdering, raping, gang member thugs into our country! This story proves that these scum bags only want to suck off of our social programs, take, take, taking from the American taxpayer and never contributing anything to this country.

Papa Coach

if we were to give them the money would they really go back? I don’t think so.

Silas Longshot

Suppose they got their $50k. Do these clowns think they can get back to Honduras (where they were paid to join the ‘march’) without some predator taking that kind of money from them? If they actually got the money, the publicity would be all over Mexico, Guatemala, etc. and every criminal within 1000 miles would be looking for them.

Keith H

Fat chance !!! That will not happen. But I’m willing as a taxpayer. To provide them with a plane ride back to what ever rock they crawled out from under !!! And as a bonus, each one of them can take 2 brain dead libtards with them !! TAKE 45 BILLION DOLLARS AND BUILD THE WALL ACROSS THE ENTIRE BORDER !!! Not the pawltry 5 Billion everybody is talking about. What an insult to our intelligence. Stupid welfare bum politicians !!! They live the Hi Life while we get Screwed right in the backside. Butt Sniffing politicians are a dime a dozen !!!

Tony Catania

I wouldn’t give them 1 cent instead I would like to fly a helicopter full of manure over them and drop it on them
