Caravan report UPDATE: “We are all the organizers"

David MenziesMission Specialist

On route to Acayucan, Veracruz, Mexico, I met a woman named Daysania who is part of the caravan heading toward the U.S. border.

She explains why she didn’t opt to try to enter the U.S. legally instead, her plans if she is denied entry, and why there are so few women like her in the caravan.

Her tell was when she smiled just before denying there are any organizers.

COMMON SENSE….did you really think my post was serious?

David Menzies is definitely treating these migrants with respect and sincere consideration.

How did they find out about the caravan? They mustn’t be able to afford the tech devices that would reach that many people?

In those 3 rd world countries, the cause no. 1 of poverty is corruption. At the gov’t and at all levels of society. And finally, between the people.

She doesn’t have 50 cents but has had blonde streaks done in her hair. There are billions of poor people like her in the world. What are we going to do? I remember my first trip in a 3 rd world country. I cried for hours, seeing so much poverty. But then I also saw that they are not unhappy. And later, I saw that they have kids at a very young age, instead of working hard. Not the same values as me. Finally, I accepted that I cannot change the world.

Jamie Macmaster, why don’t you bring them to your basement, and your daughter’s room, and when those are full, let them camp in your back yard. They are illegal, have no right to cross the border whatsoever. They can apply just like everybody else. By the way, check out all the footage, very few women, children, mostly males, young adults. That looks very familiar to Europe. Why would they leave all those family members behind in what you called atrocious conditions with gangs, warfare, crime, famine, jobless? Why? Because it is an invasion paid for and orchestrated quite obviously by some very big money. So Jamie, invite them to your place and take complete and total responsibility for them forever. Oh, that’s right, you wouldn’t. Neither will we because they have no right to be here, especially without applying like all the sane genuine immigrants do. The moment this caravan crosses or tries to cross into the United States, they are criminals.

If this female try’s to get into the US illegally she, though not a Muslim, should be treated as one. Using Sharia Law, cut off one arm and one leg on opposite sides, drive her back into Mexico for fifty miles and leave her.

‘Just joking Folks’. In fact if these people are not Muslims, perhaps it would be better to just allow them to enter the USA. Just remember to deport the same number of Muslims first.

Feel sorry feeling for someone like her, preferable to mass Muslim immigration, but immigration has to be done legally.

I hope they are met at the border by the army…who should escort them safely to US sanctuary cities.
