Default First wave of the Caravan of migrants has already reached the border

https://www.foxnews.com/world/carava...-officials-say

Quote:
The vanguard of the huge Central American migrant caravan pushing its way to the border arrived in Tijuana on Wednesday -- at least a week ahead of schedule -- as troops continue to mass on the U.S. side of the border amid President Trump's vow to repel the group.

A "breakway group" of several hundred migrants from the main caravan has already arrived at the border city of Tijuana, aided in part by buses, officials from the Department of Homeland Security told Fox News.

"As we have said repeatedly, being a member of a caravan doesn't give you any special rights to enter the country," DHS spokeswoman Katie Waldman told Fox News. "If they arrive at a Port of Entry, they will have to wait in line in keeping with the lawful processes at our ports of entry. If they attempt to enter illegally, they will have violated U.S. criminal law and in accordance with the President's proclamation and the Interim Final Rule they would be ineligible for asylum."

Waiting on the American side of the border are thousands of U.S. troops and border enforcement authorities -- and, on Wednesday, Secretary of Defense James Mattis.

The migrant group arrived in the border town after nine buses trucked 357 travelers through the penultimate leg of their intended journey, Tijuana's head of migrant services said.






Damn, they're even bringing their dogs with them too!

i trust that the 5,000+ troops who were sent to the border at a cost of $200 mil will put a stop to this?

And then what? Straight to a home with a white picket fence and a steady 9-5 job?

Where do these migrants go and what happens to them once they get into this country?

Should be entering into a free unregulated labor market, and letting capitalism work itís magic.

That's interesting. So I should be able to hire them right off the street? No ID, no SS#, no background check available. No proof of income obviously cause I haven't hired them yet. No mode of transportation either cause obviously they need to work first to afford transportation. They don't speak the language either so that could get tricky.


Are you sure it's that easy? Where do they sleep and what do they eat until they start to see paychecks rolling in? There has to be an easier way.

You have to let the market dictate it. Thatís capitalism. What are you going to do, use that state? Is that your easier way?

But how productive would my business be by hiring these migrants versus an American citizen? Please don't tell me that I should let the market dictate it!

Outside of picking oranges, what else can these migrants do? Can they automatically become doctors and lawyers? I know what you're going to say....let the market dictate it! Ahh! Ahh!

70%+ of them over the age of 16yo end up being apart of the workforce...not sure about 9-5, usually it's labor intensified jobs with long hours and which no born-american (homeless included) willingly wants to do, for the most part

Pretty hilarious that the Mexican government paid for those buses to get the migrants quickly through our territory and to the US border

It's y'all problem now.
