    Migrant caravan heading for US clashes with police in Mexico

    Tapachula, Mexico (CNN)Honduran migrants in a massive caravan surged across a bridge leading to Mexico on Friday before they were halted in a chaotic confrontation with a phalanx of Mexican police in riot gear.

    Chanting and cheering migrants pushed through or climbed over a steel gate until police threw tear gas and smoke canisters and pushed the migrants back. Video showed coughing and weeping migrants collapsed on the bridge. Several police and an undetermined number of migrants were injured.

    and Mexico won't stop them

    'You can’t even walk, there’s just so many people': Migrant caravan bound for US swells

    The illegal migrant caravan is sweeping through Chiapas in southern Mexico on Sunday, their numbers having jumped to over 7,000 overnight from just a few thousand as it became apparent the caravan would not be stopped by Mexico.

    “No one will stop us, only God,” he said. “We knocked down the door and we continue walking.”

    Trump has been pressuring the three countries to halt the caravan, threatening to cut off aid in the region and deploy troops along the border if the caravan makes it that far. He has made the caravan a central theme of the midterm elections, accusing the Democrats of supporting open borders and encouraging mass migration.

    "I'm willing to send the military to defend our southern border if necessary, all caused because of the illegal immigration onslaught brought by the Democrats," he said at a campaign rally last week. "They like it. They also figure everybody coming in is going to vote Democrat, you know. Hey, they're not so stupid when you think about it."

    When half of the country along with their complicit, corrupt media is telling these people they want them to flood the borders and get free everything in America, this is what you get. And it won't slow down any time soon.

    Congress should call an emergency session and change the laws concerning refugees. Shut the border down and force them to stay in Mexico. I'd also shut off all aid to those countries and cut off all financial transactions between the U.S. and Mexico (Mexico gets billions of dollars from illegals here) until this is under control.

    What works best for Democrats right now? A humanitarian crisis at the southern border. Trying to force the Presidentís hand and make the Republicans look bad.

    Like the Kavanaugh hearings, I think that will backfire on them.

    What are these people going to do once they get in the country? I just don't know how people can support total abandon of the law. Does the govt pay for these people? Do they just wonder around the streets...

    More handy work by the commie pinko lefties. Send the military. Mexico had better get off its ass. This political border exploitation is getting real old.

    I'm sure. He's probably getting things ready for them now. Brown is such a dolt.

    Maybe we should gather up arms as civilians head to the border and do the job our government is too damn afraid to do. a hundred thousand legally armed Americans should give them pause to rethink their actions.

    What are these people eating? Where are they shitting?
    They look pretty well dressed, most have backpacks.
    This doesn't look like a migration, it looks like a demonstration/organised march.

    This is looking more and more like an invasion. I thought we had a military to stop that?

    The Caravans are a disgrace to the Democrat Party. Change the immigration laws NOW!

    If the Democrats would stop being obstructionists and come together, we could write up and agree to new immigration laws in less than one hour. Look at the needless pain and suffering that they are causing. Look at the horrors taking place on the Border. Chuck & Nancy, call me!

    Full efforts are being made to stop the onslaught of illegal aliens from crossing our Souther Border. People have to apply for asylum in Mexico first, and if they fail to do that, the U.S. will turn them away. The courts are asking the U.S. to do things that are not doable!

    There's no way this caravan just happened. It has obviously been organized and is being supported with money, probably from Soros.

    This is clearly their plan to influence the elections. The problem is this will only drive more votes to Republicans. Hollywood and elitist types think everybody wants open borders because they only take to each other. The assume that everybody is controlled by identity politics. That's why they assume that all hispanics and all blacks are in favor of more minorities flooding into the country.

    The problem is, they're not. Any honest poll shows that even the liberal base is not in support of open borders. Black people and hispanics already here trying to make a living know that a flood of even more immigrants will only make it more difficult for them to find a good paying job.

    Dems should be real scared about this. If a mob of people storms and overruns the border at election time, lots of people will be voting Republican.

    This....
    The figure I heard ( havent verified) is roughly 2000 miles to go.
    At 3.something mph for 10 hours a day = around 60some days......

    But the real evidence will be in how the countryside looks, once the 'caravan' has passed by.
    If these ppl act like locusts, they might get real unpopular REAL fast. ('course, that will just be with the locals, but still).
    If they don't, one must wonder, where they will get provisions.
    Between 5 and 10 K ppl equates to a decent sized army, and there is plenty of historical background on those size armies footing it around countrysides.
    I seem to recall from history lessons many moons ago, that peasants found defending armies as much of a problem as attacking ones.
