Last time I knew, that was call “extortion” (“nice country you have there, shame if we were to enter it”). Yup, that’s what they’re doing – people that shouldn’t be here, didn’t bother to follow our laws, making demands on no basis at all. How about another choice: go home? Oh, and note how they’ve learned the lingo from the American Left who holds that America is horrible (reformatted, emphasis mine):
Migrant group demand Trump either let them in or pay them each $50G to turn around: report
Two groups of Central American migrants marched to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana on Tuesday with a list of demands, with one group delivering an ultimatum to the Trump administration: either let them in the U.S. or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. Among other demands were that deportations be halted and that asylum seekers be processed faster and in greater numbers, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The first group of caravan members, that included about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11 a.m. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, said the $50,000 figure was chosen as a group.
“It may seem like a lot of money to you,” Ulloa told the paper. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”
Right. Let’s see, 10,000 illegals X $50,000 works out to be $500 million – that’s not just “walking around” (pun intended) money. Yet, they feel entitled for that couple of thousand mile walk (ride?) at the request of no one here and after that infamous “bum rush” of our border? With that, and the demands above, it certainly doesn’t paint a picture of people who value our country.
And to that last point they make “United States has stolen from Honduras.” Our American Left makes that claim all the time and their outlook is that we are getting what we deserve because COLONIALISM! However, they never put it into that age’s context, do they? They only judge our past based on their SJW “morals” which, they also refuse to acknowledge, are not shared by most Americans (The Left is embarrassed by America, most Americans are embarrassed by them).
Now, it is a rather short article so I’ll keep this part real short:
- So, what WAS stolen by the US and how did you compute its worth? How does it compare with that $500M figure you came up with?
- And why should it be paid to YOU? What did the US steal from you directly? Can you prove legal “harm” and do you have “standing” in which to bring claims?
Words have meanings but unfortunately, I think Alfonso is merely parroting words here hoping not to bolster a legal argument but a PR one. Silly person – Does he really think that Trump is that spineless to fall for that claptrap? Sure, the Dems will – but only to bolster their own political PR attempts (but only maybe).
Hey, at the end of the day, I’ll bid $2,000 to go back to my home – already a bargain!
