MONICA SHOWALTER - CARAVAN ARRIVES, HONDURAN FLAGS FLYING, MIDDLE FINGERS FLASHING..... Is Pelosi down at the border handing out voter registration cards?

Caravan arrives, Honduran flags flying, middle fingers flashing

After a big buildup, the migrant caravan full of Central America's finest has finally arrived, and as screengrabs from local television broadcasts show, they gave America the bird.
Seriously.  Buried in a News 8 broadcast from San Diego was footage of illegal migrants and their supporters on the U.S. side breaching the U.S. fence on the border, waving a big Honduran flag, victory-style, and whipping out a big middle finger at America.
In times past, arriving immigrants used to kiss the earth.  Today, they wave the middle finger at us.  Look at these photos, both from News 8 and the CBS national report, rough and blurry, admittedly, showing just what that caravan was about in all its anti-American tenor, which frankly, should have been the lede to the story:
For a publicity stunt as staged as the migrant caravan from Central America, one that one might have expected to have been carefully choreographed to advance their narrative of needy people with sob stories needing asylum, what does it say that all we see are military-aged young men, some with tattoos, illegally entering the U.S. under the Honduran banner and angrily flashing the middle finger in what might be their first moments in America?
Here are more photos showing that this crowd (and its cheering section on the other side) is anything but the women and children in peril being promoted by the group's organizers.  Actually, it's almost all single military-aged young men in small groups, who seem to be angry at our country and us for not letting them in on demand.
The beach from the San Diego side, where one Honduran flag is featured.

This appears to be the scene from the Tijuana side, using the ocean as a reference, which also features Honduran flags in the crowd and at the top of the border fence.


More migrants.  One of these pictured may be from among the Haitians who tried to get in from Tijuana a few months ago.  A Haitian flag was featured earlier in the report.

More than one Honduran flag of conquest over the U.S. border.  Note the military-aged young men bunching in groups at the top and the yellow left-wing militant flag below.
The sign in English suggests that the above photo was taken from the San Diego side, but the climbers are likely to have come from the Tijuana side since the idea is to get in.  News reports said some did.

The fence-scalers also wore masks.

Not exactly pleading as pitiful refugees.

Adios, Sanctuary La Raza Welfare State of California  

A fifth-generation Californian laments his state’s ongoing economic collapse.

What’s clear is that the producers are leaving the state and the takers are coming in. Many of the takers are illegal aliens, now estimated to number over 2.6 million. 
The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates that California spends $22 billion on government services for illegal aliens, including welfare, education, Medicaid, and criminal justice system costs. 

Border Patrol Catches Migrants ‘Associated with’ Caravan Crossing Illegally

U.S. Border Patrol reported Saturday that it had apprehended several individuals “associated with the Central American Caravan” who were trying to cross illegally into the country.

While many members of the group reportedly planned to apply for asylum at the San Ysidro point of entry on Sunday, others had tried to enter the U.S. “by climbing over the dilapidated scrap metal border fence” on Friday and Saturday, according to a statement by U.S. Customs and Border Protection Chief Patrol Agent Rodney S. Scott.
“In several of these incidents, children as young as 4-years-old, and in one case a pregnant female, were detected entering the United States illegally through a dark, treacherous canyon that is notorious for human and drug smuggling,” Scott said.
He continued with a warning (original emphasis):
Entering the United States at any place other than an official Port of Entry is illegal. …
To anyone that is associated with this caravan, Think Before You Act.  If anyone has encouraged you to illegally enter the United States, or make any false statements to U.S. government officials, they are giving you bad advice and they are placing you and your family at risk.
We are a very welcoming country but just like your own house, we expect everyone to enter through our front door, and answer questions honestly.  On a national level that front door is the Ports of Entry.   If you enter the United States at any place other than a Port of Entry it is a crime. You will be arrested and referred for prosecution.
As the Los Angeles Times and other outlets noted, it was not clear what “associated with” the caravan meant, and whether it referred to “people who actually had taken part in the bus trek from Central America, through Mexico, to seek political asylum in the U.S.”
The Times reported that members of the caravan spent Friday and Saturday receiving legal advice and training for how to present themselves to request asylum at the border on Sunday.
