Watch: Chaos Erupts As "Caravan" Of Illegals Scales US Border Fence, Cheering "Gracias Mexico"

Scores of migrants gathered at the U.S. border began scaling the San Diego "wall" while shouting "Gracias, México!" presumably to thank the Mexican government for allowing them to travel from Central America to the U.S. border in the hopes of obtaining asylum from the Trump administration. 

Some 200 migrants, many traveling with children, attempted to apply for asylum at San Diego's San Ysidro border crossing - approximately six miles inland from where the fence is being scaled - only to be told that they port of entry is at capacity.

"At this time, we have reached capacity at the San Ysidro port of entry for CBP officers to be able to bring additional persons traveling without appropriate entry documentation into the port of entry for processing," Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said in a statement. "Those individuals may need to wait in Mexico as CBP officers work to process those already within our facilities."

Or they can just go six miles West and hop the fence. 

Despite being told that the San Ysidro port was at capacity, around 200 migrants began walking towards it.

Rodulfo Figueroa, the top Mexican immigration official in Baja California state, told caravan organizers to send in an initial group of 20 migrants to see if U.S. border inspectors would entertain their request for asylum.

Figueroa said he doesn't know if they would be allowed in and had not received word from U.S. immigration officials.

Nicole Ramos, an attorney working on behalf of caravan members, expressed disbelief that U.S. authorities cannot process more asylum seekers until its backlog eases. -AP

"They have been well aware that a caravan is going to arrive at the border," she said at a news conference. "The failure to prepare and failure to get sufficient agents and resources is not the fault of the most vulnerable among us. We can build a base in Iraq in under a week. We can't process 200 refugees. I don't believe it."

As we reported yesterday, the approximately 400 migrants about to cross into San Diego have been refusing the advice of immigration attorneys, who say the asylum-seekers risk a lengthy detention, or being separated from their families, before eventual deportation back to Central America.

Kenia Elizabeth Avila, 35, appeared shaken after the volunteer attorneys told her Friday that temperatures may be cold in temporary holding cells and that she could be separated from her three children, ages 10, 9 and 4.

But she in said an interview that returning to her native El Salvador would be worse. She fled for reasons she declined to discuss. -AP

After crossing through Mexicali earlier last week, the migrants been gathering in Tijuana on Tuesday. So many reportedly showed up that the shelter they were occupying was overflowing by Wednesday. Most members of the group are from Guatemala, El Salvador or Honduras, and are fleeing their homes, they say, because of death threats from local gangs, or political persecution.

That, according to many, is worth dealing with US authorities and deportation for the small chance they might be granted asylum. 

If they’re going to separate us for a few days, that’s better than getting myself killed in my country,” said Avila.

 As Reuters pointed out on Thursday, the timing of their arrival could sabotage NAFTA talks after President Trump repeatedly threatened to scrap the deal if Mexico doesn't do more to stop Central American migrants from traveling through its territory.

Gov Moonbeam sent 500 social workers to the border. DMV agents to distribute drivers licenses and voter registration. Housing authority to help with section 8 registration. MediCal because we are sure many new citizens are to be delivered soon.  Food stamp and Social security agents on hand to make sure no one falls through the gaps. The Dept. of education is there to make sure all our new students are enrolled , granting federal funds. Lawyers are present to make sure your none of your "rights" are violated. Welcome to California Norte.

Our laws do not allow for this. Our treasonous, pussyfied politicians do.....including Trump.

If I were president, this would never happen. If I had to cause an "international incident", then that is what we would have. Where is Trump on this? He'll condemn it in a series of tweets tomorrow.

It has to be clear that the only way we stop this is for Americans to see this coming and bodily block it from happening. We'll get arrested for sure but maybe....just maybe people will wake the hell up.....that DC doesn't intend to do jack shit about this.

One practical solution to block illegals on the west coast. Partially expand the San Diego military base in the far south of California to include the US boundary from the ocean to 20 miles inland but only a half mile deep. The military will then have the jurisdiction to directly arrest trespassers in this area which is a main entry for illegals.

Lack of respect of our borders should begin being met with the same lack of respect.

This has been an annual "event" for some time now. Only this time it is being "televised" and promoted to the masses of the US.

The natural reaction of the left will be hipocracy: let them all in as long as they don't stay in my neighborhood.

A look at Europe shows the future.

Presidente Nieto aided & abbeted this friggin spectacle from start to finish. 

He's worse than Calderon by a factor of ten and thats saying something because Calderon walked into our Congress and begged it to ban our guns & denigrated a sovereign state (Arizona) for trying to protect itself from HIS people. 

I say it's high time we set up a GoFundMe account for one of the cartels to take care of this little weasel ;-)

Mexico is about to go swirling down the flusher, it is now a daily event in Mexico for their to be cartel killings and the vacation areas are the targets.  I decided about 10 years ago not to return and use to visit the Mayan peninsula area before it turned into a crime zone.  

Mexico’s party hotspot Cancun sees 14 murdered in 36 hours as tourist town is overrun by drug gang violence

Not worth the cheap drinks, cheap labor.. build a wall and then use water cannon to keep the problem south of it.  Ask Russia and China to take these people.. it is so wonderful there.. I read about that daily at this website.. maybe the Kremlin trolls could use these people in Russia to pick cabbage.

Do not need the crime these people bring.  They should be arrested, split the families, and simply drop them off on the side of the wall they came from.. not spend a cent on these people with the veterans in this nation homeless

That's like holding your neighbors responsible for allowing a thief to walk across their yards on his way to rob you, while you knew he was coming, and were sitting on your ass with a gun when he came through the door, but you never looked up from the teevee as you told him the beer is in the fridge.

You lash out at foreign presidents (agreed), but give your own (sitting on his ass) a free pass. If Trump or any US President can't deal with this....right now, on the spot.....then we are no longer a sovereign nation....and all bets are off.

Picking up where we left off Shirley, it is your "analysis" that is flawed.

ACTUALLY it's like your neighbor (Nieto) inviting thieves to come across his back yard while giving them food & water while they wait for their moment to break into my house.

If you anti-Trump fags are going to make analogies at least keep them in the realm of the real world because that is exactly what Nieto did.

I agreed with the blame put on Nieto...to a point.

But you Trumptard, dicklickers miss the main issue because you can't bear to put the real blame where it belongs.....on the responsible person. This is the direct responsibility of the President of the United States! You thick headed sack of shit! You, me, none of us have any say about what goes on in Mexico. But we are supposed to have some say in our own house. Bitches like you that give the responsible party a free ride because you want them to be something they are not or because you day dream about being their buddy, is everything that is wrong with our political system. You are no different than the liberal wackos that gave Obama a free pass.....because he was a liberal wacko.

I am not anti-trump, you little bitch baby! I am anti-bitch-baby-fan-boys like you. You act like I am supposed to praise the man for just doing his damn job. Well, I damn sure am not going to sing his praises when he won't do his job.

Time for excuses is over.....bitch!

The main issue, you little fag, is that Nieto IS LETTING THEM PASS FREELY THROUGH HIS COUNTRY (in fact feeding, sheltering & watering them) without any kind of health quarantine, without a visa, without a passport, without deporting them back nothing...they are fucking illegal, right there in HIS OWN country and he's ushering them straight through to HIS NORTHERN BORDER!

But don't let your TDS get in the way of you being a drooling useful idiot.

Oh thats right, you never have before, why stop now!

Your cognitive dissonance is thick you self absorbed jackass! Nieto can let all of South America walk through HIS country if he wants to....THAT'S NOT THE PROBLEM, YOU MAN WORSHIPPING, NONTHINKING, HEAD-UP-TRUMP'S-ASS DICK!.....THE PROBLEM is when your pussy president LETS them come into OUR country because he is too weak and uncommitted to do his job.

You are definitely going on the "COULDN'T-THINK-PAST-TRUMP-IF-YOUR-LIFE-DEPENDED-ON-IT" list, super chump.

Granted. However I don't see that applies as much in this case....in that as far as I know, we haven't invaded Mexico and overthrown their government. At this point we might as well do just that, since for all intents and purposes we seem to have extended the Bill of Rights to their people.

In any case, our failure to secure our borders.....as every other country on earth does....is just another nail in the coffin of what used to be a great republic.

"Zionists are killing this Nation and its people. We are at war!"  Yes we are ! 

The jew supremacists have waged war against us since 1811 and we are severely losing. 

They are rejoicing, sipping their cognac grinning ear to ear saying "we had a good day"

When is enough U.S. of America ? 

The jew supremacists of the world are everyones #1 Enemy- they are the destroyers !!

The title should accurately read "GRACIAS JEW SUPRMACISTS"

My impression is the Trump Admin plans to criminally charge illegal entry. This will prevent fence hoppers from any legal entry in the future. For those coming to a legal entry point, they get rejected as an economic migrant. (Obummer made everyone an asylum seeker and unconditonally let them loose in the US.)

This should send a message to would-be migrants that the game has changed.

Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of being strong, good and successful. They hate America, they hate Western civilization, they hate white males, they hate rationality. The reasons that leftists give for hating the West, etc. clearly do not correspond with their real motives. They SAY they hate the West because it is warlike, imperialistic, sexist, ethnocentric and so forth, but where these same faults appear in socialist countries or in primitive cultures, the leftist finds excuses for them, or at best he GRUDGINGLY admits that they exist; whereas he ENTHUSIASTICALLY points out (and often greatly exaggerates) these faults where they appear in Western civilization. Thus it is clear that these faults are not the leftist’s real motive for hating America and the West. He hates America and the West because they are strong and successful. The West must therefore be destroyed.
