Trump Told Mexico to Stop Migrants From Reaching the U.S. So Far, His Plan Is Working | The Dispatch


“… dozens of National
Guard police.” I’m on the
Guatemala-Mexico border. This bridge is
the main crossing for migrant caravans on their
way to the United States. But this group, which left
Honduras in mid-January, is about to hit a barrier. And they’re still over 1,000
miles from the U.S. border. [Shouting] “Mexico shouldn’t
allow millions of people to try and enter our country.” Last year, President Trump
threatened Mexico with import tariffs,
if the country didn’t seal its border with Guatemala. So Mexico deployed a
newly formed security force to block migrants
from entering. Now this wave of
some 4,000 migrants is putting enforcement
here to the test. I wanted to see how Mexico
would handle the challenge. What I find is a country
taking a much harder line on its southern border,
in response to U.S. pressure. I witness three
attempts by migrants to cross into Mexico, each time,
met with increasing force. This attempt ends with
Mexican authorities letting small groups through
to register with Migration. It’s a legal obligation, and also a way of breaking
up the caravan. Once in Mexico,
the first thing migrants hear is a warning from the U.S.
repeated over a loudspeaker. And then, an offer
to send them home. By the end of the day,
close to 2,000 migrants have registered
to stay in Mexico, many with the goal of someday
still reaching the U.S. What they don’t know is that
Mexico will end up returning most of them to Honduras. It’s a new day, and more migrants
are on the border, undeterred and ready
to cross into Mexico. This time, a few petition
Mexican authorities on behalf of the group, appealing
for compassion to let them continue the caravan. But Mexico doesn’t budge. So the group turns to Plan B. Border security are
waiting for them on the other side of
the Suchiate River. The standoff ends
with the migrants staying put in Guatemala,
and waiting for an opportunity to try to cross again. A few days later, with border
security nowhere in sight, hundreds of migrants
manage to get through, by crossing the river
at a different spot, only to be met by
dozens of troops who were waiting for them
several miles down the road. [Screaming] [Shouting] Some 800 people are rounded
up and forced onto buses, soon to be deported. In the face of pressure
from all sides, Mexico stopped this group
from reaching the U.S. border, giving the Trump administration
exactly what it wants.

    Borders have to be closed to illegal immigrants until the U.S. takes care of the immigrants that have gone about this the legal way..the illegal ones that are already in the system come next..
    A halt to everyone else who is doing this illegally is a must..
    If you want to come to the U.S. do it legally..
    Mexico is doing a great job. Thank you..

    Southern Mexico and all those countries in Central America are the same people because they are some type of Mayan. Not all of Mexico is the same. Plus there is even an English-speaking country in mainland Central America known as Belize.

    The sad thing about it is that the US is guilty of creating poverty and misery in Latin America. All it cares about is to usurp the oil, gold and other natural resources as well as harboring and protecting corrupt public officials. One perfect example is how the US has protected ex president Alvaro Uribe Vélez a well known narco paramilitary criminal.

    The problem isn’t going to go away. As long as people are unable to get jobs and feed themselves in their home country they are always going to migrate to somewhere with better prospects. You can see the desperation in their eyes.

    Where is the logic? Why were the ancestors of the same trump allowed to come and become Americans, and the rest who want to repeat their path, can not? When they came to America, future Americans disregarded the rights of the Indians, seized their lands and settled where they wanted, and the Indians were killed and driven out. Now the descendants of these people forbid others to come to the United States and forget that they themselves came from illegal immigration.

    I hate Trump, viscerally. However, these groups are ridiculous. Letting them through would be tantamount to condoning the actions of people traffickers and other ill intention-ed groups. Stopping them is one sure way of ensuring these groups are no longer able to leach money out of the ignorant and the innocent. Truly it is agony to watch, but immigration of this nature is dangerous for the immigrants, and supports too many criminal groups. Yes, it takes an eternity to get a visa, or even permission to enter the US, but it is better than starving to death in the desert, and for anyone who argues that it is too expensive, ask them how much they pay the smugglers to let them through.

    In principle, Trump is defying international law by obstructing lawful claims of asylum– by simply preventing the refugees from reaching the physical point of contact with officials who would be required to apply due process.

    It's completely typical of Trump to simply go around the law, or trick his way through. If he was serious about managing the number of refugees eligible for legal entry into the United States under asylum claims, he'd address it in the courts or in Congress– so that he could legally restrict the number of claims, legally and officially. That would be orderly and decent, if he could make a case.

    Trump has no regard for law or process or the implications of justice and reasonable consideration that are supposed to undergird the immigration bureaucracy. Neither does he even recognize international law or consensus on human rights.

    Neither does he have even the slightest inclination to apply his powers legally and honorably, in anything. The pattern has been consistent throughout, with him: he does something desperate and inhuman and brutal and highly questionable, even as strategy itself– if not wholly illegal–, gets caught at it, retreats into safer territory by making apparent moderations, then subverts the law on its flanks, lies, propagandizes the issue, and keeps a pack of sycophantic lawyers nearby to sweep it all under the carpet long enough for him to run his next grift.

    Trump despises poor people. When he describes them as "vermin" and an "invasion", his disgust is real. These are not human beings, to him. And since he is a malignant narcissistic sociopath, he has no empathy for the plight of the suffering and miserable, and cannot possibly put himself in their position. These are not people victimized by failed states and systemic poverty and tragic societal instability and neglect; they are insects. Dirty creatures. An infection.

    Trump is succeeding at installing a zeitgeist of open malice in the presidency, and a zeitgeist that entirely extinguishes mercy from American policymaking.

    The Honduras example has to do a lot with US foreign policies from Obama and Trump. Obama gave the okay to a Overthrow the presidency of Mel Zelaya after years of chaos there finally they had some stability and the last election there was fraud and Trump this time gave the okay to the Juan Orlando President to Stay even relatives of the now president have been or are being convicted of drug crimes in Florida yet they're okay with the Honduran government because it's useful for them both to US corporate interest and US military. The US has a lot of US military bases in Honduras.
