Leader of Illegal Aliens in Mexico Says They’re ‘Ready for War’ Against Border Patrol


The following article, Leader of Illegal Aliens in Mexico Says They’re ‘Ready for War’ Against Border Patrol, was first published on Flag And Cross.

The leader of the latest “migrant caravan” gathering in southern Mexico says that they are “ready for war” against border agents.

This caravan of illegal aliens looking to crash our border as early as Oct. 25 is led by a criminal named Irineo Mujica who says he and his army are ready to attack.

“We are leaving in 20 days,” Irineo Mujica said in a video posted on Oct. 10. “We prefer to march with (travel) papers. […] And this time, with papers or without papers, we are ready for war. If the National Guard comes and they are cowardly enough to beat women and children, let them prepare because God’s hand is with us.”

“They have no intention of letting the Haitians leave, unless it is to Haiti,” he added. “That is why we are seeking the amparos. With those writs, (Mexican) immigration cannot detain them, and they know it.”

The statement from Mujica, a U.S. citizen with the nonprofit Pueblo Sin Fronteras, comes amid growing frustration from thousands of Haitians and Central American migrants seeking humanitarian visas to either stay in Mexico or have free transit north. The migrants and their advocates have been holding rallies and marches in Tapachula in recent days, according to local media.

The new caravan would come on the heels of the mid-September arrival of 15,000 Haitians and Central Americans to Del Rio, Texas. It would also confirm concerns recently voiced by a Panamanian official regarding the passage of an additional 60,000 to 65,000 Haitians through her country on the way north.

Mujica and other advocates in Tapachula last week turned to federal courts in the state of Chiapas to force the National Migration Institute (INM) and the National Refugee Commission (COMAR) to acknowledge the right of some 12,000 migrants there to seek asylum.

The court writs, known as amparos, wouldn’t guarantee asylum but would at least protect the migrants from deportation, the activists say.

The INM responded with a news release saying no Haitians have been granted such protection so far and that the writs don’t guarantee free transit, anyway.

“The INM makes this information available so that people who are migrants aren’t given erroneous information, false documents or become victims of extortion,” the agency said.
