Migrant Caravan Planning ‘Human Stampede’ Into America; One Group 500 Feet From U.S. Border

Members of a migrant caravan that marched from Central America through Mexico are reportedly talking about crossing the U.S. border in what amounts to a "human stampede" in order to draw reaction from the Trump administration

“They have that intention,” Sergio Tamai, a founder of Angels without Borders, a group that is aiding the migrants, told Telemundo 20 in San Diego, Fox News reported. “I believe that thousands could make that jump.”

Some 6,000 migrants have gathered in Tijuana, Mexico, across from San Diego, Calif., in the last couple of weeks. The Trump administration says as many as 10,000 could arrive in the next weeks or months. Most are sleeping in the streets or camped out in makeshift tents.

“Most of us, yes, we want to be on the other side,” Jorge Molina, a Honduran migrant, told Telemundo. “Some want to jump over the wall, others to go another way, and others want to wait and see what kind of response they get.”

Tijuana councilman Manuel Monárrez said a mass border would "further strain economic relations with the U.S."

"A human stampede would be an immediate provocation to the U.S.,” Monárrez and justify Donald Trump to impact the binational dynamics of the economy.”

Meanwhile, a group of about 150 migrants split from the main caravan and moved within 500 feet of the U.S. border, according to one report on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My hope is that if these people are physically repelled, that no one gets hurt; the optics for even one person (or, God forbid, a child getting hurt) would be horrific for the White House right now.
