Talk about entitled!
Imagine what she will demand if she enters the United States!
I love this Tweet, which reads: “What did she expect, a medium rare steak from Mastros?”
By the way, I've had a medium rare steak from Mastros and it's amazing.
But I paid for it, with money I earned while working extremely hard at my job!
The Daily Caller also covered the story:
Six thousand Central American migrants have encamped in Tijuana, Mexico, waiting to enter the United States, legally or illegally.
The migrants are part of a thousands-strong migrant caravan that originated in Honduras. The caravan reached the American border with the assistance of charter buses and are now camped in Tijuana with no place to go as they apply for asylum at the American ports of entry.
President Donald Trump, who made the migrant caravan a critical part of the 2018 midterms messaging for the GOP, has hardened the southern border with armed soldiers and razor wire.
Deutsche Welle’s Spanish language channel, DW Español, traveled to Tijuana in order to interview some of the migrants living in the camps. A reporter asked one of the migrants how the living conditions were in the camp. The woman complained about the food she had been given in the camp, calling it food for “pigs” and saying she would “die of hunger” if she did not eat it.
“The truth is, the food that they’re handing out here is terrible,” the woman complained while holding up the food platter. “Look at what they’re giving us. Refried beans, as if they were feeding the pigs. And the truth is, we don’t have any other options. If we don’t eat this, we will die of hunger,” according to the Spanish translation of her answer.
The Desert Sun had more:
Hundreds of Tijuana residents, opposed to what they described as the "chaos" of the Central American migrant caravan, gathered at a prominent roundabout in Tijuana Sunday morning, before marching to a large, temporary shelter, which now holds about 2,400 migrants.
They chanted "Mexico! Mexico!" and "yes to migrants, no to invaders!" They sang the national anthem and waved Mexican flags and banners and signs, with messages urging the migrants to go home and urging the government to take action.
Tijuana resident Guadalupe Barrera said the protesters oppose how the migrants entered the county. She held a sign that read in Spanish "no more caravans.""This is not racism," she said. "We are opposed to the invasion."
Barrera said Mexico doesn't have the resources to care for its own people, let alone migrants from Central America. She pointed to communities affected by a recent hurricane that hit Sinaloa and Nayarit, which caused flooding and other damage, as well as the homicide rate in Tijuana, which has reached an all-time high.
"Our country doesn’t have the resources to sustain itself," she said.
Barrera also said she's concerned that the presence of the caravan would cause the U.S. to close the border, jeopardizing people who live by the Mexican border and depend on the U.S. economy.

America Villa, of Rosarito, said she was in Playas de Tijuana on Wednesday and watched as a young caravan member climbed up the border fence and tried to pull off a corroded part of the wall. That proved to her that some of the migrants are delinquent, she said.
At the protest Sunday, she wore the Mexican national team's red, white and green soccer jersey. She said she would like to see the Mexican government register all the migrants. Those that have a criminal history should be immediately deported, she said.
Fidel Ernesto Gonzalez, of Tijuana, said the Mexican government should secure Mexico's southern border with Guatemala and require all immigrants to enter the country legally, with passports and visas.
"It's the same thing that Donald Trump is dealing with in the United States," he said. "If you want to enter the United States, you can enter but you have to do so legally."
