January 1, 6,000 Migrants Head for US Border



1856: 500 Mormons leave Iowa City, Iowa, and head west for Salt Lake City, Utah, carrying all their possessions in two-wheeled handcarts.

A caravan of at least 6,000 migrants left southern Mexico, headed for the U.S. in time for the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles, California.

Reuters reported that no less than 6,000 migrants left Tapachula early on Monday. Many of the migrants are from Venezuela.

“These are countries collapsing from poverty and violence,” said Luis Garcia Villagran, caravan organizer. “We strongly urge those who attend the summit … to look at what is happening, and what could happen even more often in Mexico, if something is not done soon.”

Robinson Reyes, a 35-year-old migrant from Colombia, told the outlet he hoped the caravan would capture the attention of leaders at the Summit of the Americas.

“We want a future for our children … we want to cross Mexico without any problems,” Reyes said. “God willing, they can talk and resolve this.”

    Maybe Martin County Commissioners ought to retrieve a few thousand of these folks (without papers) and build “affordable housing” for them – right in Palm City, as close as possible to Mr. Ciampi’s home. He wants to form a housing initiative. Here his answer. BTW, there is an affordable housing county committee and apparently there are a dozen places already planned, some under construction. And he, who was so opposed to a Costo, which would bring jobs, more competitive prices, should be happy at that.
    There is nothing in the US constitution, nor the Florida Constitution calling for affordable housing subsidized by the government (taxpayers) at any level. Where does Martin get its justification for providing homes for anyone?

    Biden, et al, are turning America into the same type of country as these migrants left to get away from. Border Control needs to do their job an the hell with what Biden wants and do what’s right for the PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES!!!!! What a unique concept that would be — do what’s RIGHT FOR AMERICANS!!!

    The United States of America cannot solve the problems of the world nor can we be the dumping grounds for illegal immigrants.
