I bet you won’t see this headlining the nightly news.
Actually, forget about headlining, I bet it won’t be covered at all.
Because it doesn’t really fit the Leftist narrative very well, does it?
The Left wants you to believe these are just poor, peaceful migrants trying to survive.
The only problem with that is peace-loving people don’t generally set fire to immigration facilities.
That’s right, according to the report, the Central American migrants were facing deportation in a Mexican immigration facility and set it on fire to try and escape.
Wait a second, Mexico was going to deport them? I guess if you follow the Left’s logic, then Mexico must be a racist White nationalist, huh?
Not only that, but the same story recounts how only hours earlier, the Mexican Federal Police arrested two men in the caravan for shooting at the police guarding the caravan!
Just more peace I guess.
From Breitbart, here are more details:
A group of Central American migrants facing deportation set fire to a Mexican immigration facility in an apparent attempt to escape. The alleged arson comes at a time when Mexican authorities reported the use of firearms and Molotov cocktails within the migrant caravans as they make their way through Mexico to the United States.
The fire was reportedly started at a facility dual-purposed as a checkpoint and makeshift detention center for Mexico’s National Migration Institute (INM) in Pijijiapan, Chiapas, when a group of migrants housed there set fire to their mattresses, Televisa Noticiasreported. According to local public safety director Jaime Marroquin, authorities were housing 21 men, five women, and three children which were in the process of being deported. The migrants reportedly set fires to give cover to their escape.
Firefighters responded to the scene while Mexican Federal Police officers detained the alleged runaways and moved them to a large immigration facility in Tapachula, Chiapas.
The fire comes only hours after Mexican Federal Police arrested two Honduran men who allegedly shot at cops guarding the migrant caravan currently in Chiapas, Breitbart News reported. The caravan began its journey earlier this month in Honduras and publicly announced its intent to reach the U.S. border. The Mexican government offered the caravan temporary jobs, health care, and education if they agreed to stay in southern Mexico and follow the country’s legal procedures for requesting asylum. The group largely turned down the offer, however, according to the INM, 111 migrants agreed and requested Mexican identification documents.
