Mexicans Protest Central American Migrants in Tijuana

HeadlineNov 20, 2018
H mexicans protest caravan

As more migrants from several Central American caravans arrive at the Mexican border city of Tijuana, some local residents are protesting their presence, echoing language used by President Trump, referring to the migrants as an “invasion” and chanting “Mexico first.” Some demonstrators clashed with police as they protested outside of a migrant shelter Sunday. This is Honduran migrant Karina Rosales addressing the recent protests.

Karina Rosales: “They have the right to protest because they don’t like that we’re here, but in spite of everything, [Mexicans] are good people. They are the same as us. But we’re only passing through. We won’t stay here.”

An estimated 3,000 Central American migrants are in Tijuana to request asylum in the United States, with more arrivals expected in the coming days.
