The Honduran Migrants just came up with a new strategy for getting into the US.
“Let us in, or give us $50,000 each to go home!”
And here I thought bribery was frowned upon. But apparently the 100 Honduran migrants making these demands at the US consulate believe this is a viable solution to their problem.
In fact, Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa of Honduras called it a “small sum of money compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”
Too bad these migrants aren’t quite as smart of those who decided to turn back already. Now, they’ll get a front row seat to the “Art of the Deal.”
The San Diego Tribune reported:
The group’s letter criticized American intervention in Central America. They gave the U.S. Consulate 72 hours to respond. They said they had not decided what to do if their demands were not met.
“I don’t know, we will decide as a group,” Ulloa said.
Clearly, these migrants didn’t come prepared to negotiate. Especially not with a power player like Donald Trump. I’d love to have a camera pointed at the expressions they’re about to make. Soon, they’ll learn they are definitely headed home, but they won’t be collecting $50,000. And surprisingly, this news will come as a shock.
If they’re lucky, someone might toss them a hamburger for the return trip. But I would bet that it won’t be Trump. In fact, Trump’s willing to shut down the government in order to secure our borders.
Obama was never willing to protect us like that!
In fact, earlier this week, Trump racked another win after courts ruled Obama’s immigration plan unconstitutional!
As Kevin Jackson wrote:
Barack Obama pulled a fast one when he tried to allow 68,000 “children” to enter America illegally. He did so under the auspice of reuniting children with their parents.
Of course no Leftist considered how foolhardy the idea was. Who would invite 68,000 children to travel thousands of miles to hopefully see their parents? Put another way, would you want your 14-year old daughter to walk 2,000 miles to reunite with you?
The Trump administration provided adequate justification for its decision to end a program that reunited hundreds of immigrants from Central America with family members in the U.S., a federal judge ruled Monday.
Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler threw out the bulk of a lawsuit that argued the termination of the Obama-era Central American Minors program was arbitrary and violated the U.S. Constitution.
The program allowed parents here legally to apply to bring in children or other relatives living in South America.
One main goal was discouraging children from making the dangerous journey to the U.S. to be with family.
President Trump is right to protect America’s immigration policy. Perhaps more importantly, he is correct to discourage children from endangering their lives. Leftists hardly discuss this aspect of illegal immigration.
Now that we’re rid of another Obama-era policy, Trump will be the one to negotiate our border security! Nancy Pelosi can bank on that.
