Thousands of Central American migrants are currently encamped in Tijuana, Mexico, waiting to enter the United States. When a Spanish language news channel traveled to the scene to interview some of the migrants, they spoke to a Honduran woman who likened the free meals she has been given to “pig food.” Karma came eventually, however, thanks to some locals who served up a very nasty surprise for her.
A thousands-strong caravan of Central American migrants, which first originated in Honduras, has reached the U.S. border. The migrants are currently camped in Tijuana as they apply for asylum at American ports of entry. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has hardened the border with soldiers and razor wire, which the undocumented immigrants will find difficult to pass.
According to The Daily Caller, Deutsche Welle’s Spanish language channel, DW Español, traveled to Tijuana in order to interview some of the migrants living in the camps. When a reporter asked one of them about the living conditions, she complained about the free food she had been given.
“The truth is, the food that they’re handing out here is terrible,” said the woman while holding up a container of food. “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,” she concluded, according to the Spanish translation of her comment.
Apparently, tortillas and refried beans are considered “pig food” to this ungrateful woman. Perhaps someone ought to inform them that that is what is served in literally every Mexican restaurant in the country they wish to invade. What does she expect? Filet mignon and lobster tail?
For obvious reasons, the woman’s response went viral, and when the locals heard what she had said, they were furious. They had already gone out of their way to accommodate the thousands of strangers invading their hometown and were kind enough to provide them with food, water, and other essentials. So, the woman’s remarks were the last straw.
In a follow-up interview, the Honduran migrant apologized after revealing that she had been bullied for her comments and ultimately made to leave the shelter where she had been staying. “I ask for forgiveness from the bottom of my heart,” she said.
It appears that her apology is too little too late, however. The damage had already been done. We now know the true motives of the migrants within the caravan — many of them are simply opportunists looking for the best handout they can find.
Just imagine the freebies these people are going to expect if they are allowed into the United States — free food, free housing, free healthcare, free education, and the list goes on and on. But, of course, none of those things are actually “free.” American citizens are paying for them.
And, what do the migrants have to contribute to our community in return? According to those on the political left, we’re in desperate need of low-skilled workers. But, should they really be given a free ride just because liberals claim “somebody has to pick the strawberries”?
It may sound harsh, but that’s the reality of the situation. What, if anything, the migrants can contribute pales in comparison to everything it will take to support them once they are here. That is why those who go through the legal immigration process must prove that they can provide for themselves. It’s not evil, it’s simply what is necessary to keep a country afloat.
