For John, BLUF: Illegal immigrants, streaming north, are not just a problem for the US. They are also a problem for Mexico. And think of the problems in South America, being caused by the Venezuelan diaspora. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Fox News, by Reporter Griff Jenkins, 6 February 2019.
Here is the lede plus three:
PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Mexico -- The Governor of Coahuila, the Mexican state where this border city is located, has one thing to say after overseeing the arrival of a caravan of nearly 2,000 migrants: “No Mas Caravanas,” or no more caravans. That was the headline in the local newspaper.I am glad to see that President Trump and I aren't the only persons with concerns about migrant caravans.
“In the case of the state government, we will not allow more migrants to travel to Coahuila,” Gov. Miguel Riquelme told reporters.
The governor explained it wasn’t up to him to stop this caravan when it crossed Mexico’s southern border nearly three weeks ago because that’s the federal government’s job. But this one is here now and he’s doing everything he can to deal with it in the most humanitarian way.
And that way involves the enormous security operation that has contained the migrants at the shelter.
