The onslaught on the US border

There are now three waves of central American migrants aiming to force their way into the US across the border.

As reported here by JE Dyer, the first group was temporary halted by a Mexican police barricade. Mexican authorities offered the migrants asylum, jobs, and an array of social assistance programs. When they refused them, the police took down the barricades and the migrants resumed their trek.

On Sunday afternoon, the second wave from Honduras reached the border with southern Mexico. The Mexican border guard requested entry in an orderly manner.

“The men at the front began to throw rocks, and rushed to attack the border gate. According to news media on-scene, the attacking men broke down a gate and at least 100 of them were able to push through it. An unknown number of people were injured in the resulting scuffle. A 26-year-old Honduran migrant reportedly died of a head injury, which some outlets are saying was the result of being hit by a rubber bullet from the Mexican guards”.
