The Tijuana Mexican residents protesting the Honduras caravan were chanting, “Donald Trump was right, this is an invasion!” and “get out Hondurans, we do not want you here.” Apparently Trump is even making Mexico Great now.
The Associated Press noted, “Tijuana residents waved Mexican flags, sang the Mexican national anthem and chanted “Out! Out!” in front of a statue of the Aztec ruler Cuauhtemoc … they accused the migrants of being messy, ungrateful and a danger to Tijuana. They also complained about how the caravan forced its way into Mexico, calling it an “invasion.” And they voiced worries that their taxes might be spent to care for the group.”
The Honduran ambassador in Mexico, Alden Rivera, told AP that Honduras wants the migrants to “return to Honduras.”
