If you believe them, house them yourself

With the avalanche of invaders from Central America, things are getting very tough for the town of Tijuana and its citizens. This situation is something never seen before.
With about 3,000 people that already reached the Mexican border across from California and thousands more anticipated, they are destroying the peace of the town’s citizens.
Tijuana has always been a port of entry of illegal aliens crossing the border and many of the residents of Tijuana have made a living for years as “coyotes” transporting those illegally entering from this side of the border.
This phenomenon could last six to seven months considering the numerous people trying to cross the border of the United States planning to file for political asylum. It has been reported that Immigration authorities are ready to take 100 applications for asylum a day.
We, at this side of the country, have problems understanding the situation — Political asylum? When none of them can prove that they are persecuted in their country of origin for political and/or religious matters? Everyone interviewed by reporters claims they have no jobs and most of all are poverty-stricken.
Is everyone in the entire nation forgetting the definition of “Political Asylum?”
Even the Mayor of Tijuana, Juan Manuel Gastelum, is in fear. He said, “No city in the world is prepared to receive this avalanche. It is a tsunami; there is a concern among all citizens of Tijuana.”
Gastelum warned migrants against criminal behavior. Authorities reported seven arrests — five for drug consumption and two for disorderly conduct.
Does anyone remember when President Trump said that illegal aliens bring drugs to our country and everybody jumped against that statement because they claimed he was talking about Mexicans? He was talking about illegal aliens in general. Well, now Mexico needed to arrest five for drug consumption, the same thing we don’t want in our
country.
The Mayor of Tijuana said: “Supposedly they are fleeing catastrophe, mistreatment in their countries of origin. How is it possible that they arrive here and, if they want, create disorder?”
I hope the honorable mayor now understands why we are so frustrated with the protesters on our soil from his country demanding rights they don’t have because they are in our country ILLEGALLY.
It is time for the National Guard to be deployed to our borders to protect our safety. That’s what the Army is supposed to do.
It was some time in April 2017 that California Governor Jerry Brown agreed to take money, but not marching orders, from President Trump in deploying 400 National Guard troops to different locations around
California emphasizing that any service members near the border would not enforce federal immigration law.
Governor Brown is of the opinion that “This will not be a mission to build a new wall. It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life.
The California National Guard will not be enforcing federal immigration laws.”
This is great, great support from the Governor of California for the people crossing the border illegally. He will welcome 11,000 of them into his socialist state and probably shelter several of them into the Governor’s Mansion and several others into his personal home. And if there is not enough room in those two places, the several reporters of Univision — such as Enrique Acevedo and Jorge Ramos, defending such causes — no doubt have room in their homes to shelter several of those demanding rights.
