Political promise to house migrants may clash with reality

David MenziesMission Specialist

I spoke with the mayor-elect of small town Loma Bonita, Mexico, currently home to northbound Central Americans we've followed in the migrant caravan.

Mayor-elect Raymond tells me that the town will support the migrants for the long haul if the US government denies their entry, but Loma Bonito's modest emergency shelter tells a different story.

Three ’caravans" in the works. What is the lesson here? That what you subsidize, you encourage. Stop feeding and housing them.

On the other hand the Dhimmicrats and Lieberals away assure us that immigration is good for the economy. So stand by for an economic boom in Northern Mexico when Trump keeps them out.

Keith, American tax payers are fleeced by UN slush funds…. who directs it the to the bagman Soros. President Trump is cancelling and putting up blockades to these slush funds. One example is Climate Change and the Paris Accord.

The Mayor seems generous as long as the Caravan moves through or is only stopping temporally and most important another level of Government pays.

This Caravan story is so much like the European Invasion where so many Countries were cheering for the Refugees as they were herded towards someone else’s Country that had good welfare and selfish Governments that would force these freeloaders on their citizens.

If Mexico keeps them then they should send a very large bill to Mr Sorros.
