Six-thousand Central American migrants are currently encamped in Tijuana, Mexico, waiting to enter the United States. When a Spanish language news channel traveled to the scene to interview some of the migrants, they spoke to a very ungrateful Honduran woman. Here’s what she had to say about the complimentary meals she and her cohorts have been provided in Mexico.
A thousands-strong caravan of Central American migrants which first originated in Honduras has reached the U.S. border, although not without the assistance of charter buses, medical aid, and necessary supplies which cost liberal activist groups millions of dollars.
The migrants are currently camped in Tijuana with no place to go as they apply for asylum at the American ports of entry. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has hardened the border with armed soldiers and razor wire which the undocumented immigrants will find difficult to pass.
According to The Daily Caller, Deutsche Welle’s Spanish language channel, DW Español, traveled to Tijuana in order to interview some of the migrants living in the camps. When a reporter asked one of them about the living conditions, she complained about the food she had been given for free.
“The truth is, the food that they’re handing out here is terrible,” said the woman while holding up a container of food. “Look at what they’re giving us. Refried beans, as if they were feeding the pigs. And the truth is, we don’t have any other options. If we don’t eat this, we will die of hunger,” she concluded, according to the Spanish translation of her comment.

Apparently, tortillas and refried beans are considered “pig food” to these ungrateful migrants. Perhaps someone ought to inform them that that is what is served in literally every Mexican restaurant in the country they wish to invade. What does she expect? Filet mignon and lobster tail?
Of course, this woman and the other people of the caravan do have other options. They could turn around and go back to their home countries if the food there is so much better. According to the account of another migrant who was interviewed, the food in Mexico is quite similar to what they were feeding themselves in Honduras.
In an interview last month, a migrant named Pedro Arturo Torres who ultimately decided to return to his native Honduras instead of completing the trek to the border, stated, “We didn’t know what lay ahead. We want to return to our country, where you can get by — even if just with beans, but you can survive, there with our families, at peace.”
Torres’ statement was not what the mainstream media wanted to hear since they have been working overtime to convince us that there is no other option for these people than to immigrate illegally to the United States because they face such dire straits in their home countries.
Just imagine the handouts these people are going to expect if they are allowed into the United States — free food, free housing, free healthcare, free education, and the list goes on and on. But, of course, none of those things are actually “free.” Someone is paying for them.
And what do the migrants have to contribute to our community in return? According to those on the political left, we’re in desperate need of these low-skilled workers. Should they really be given a free ride just because “somebody has to pick the strawberries”?
It may sound harsh, but that’s the reality of the situation. What, if anything, the migrants can contribute pales in comparison to everything it will take to support them once they are here. That is why those who go through the legal immigration process must prove that they can provide for themselves. It’s not evil, it’s simply what is necessary to keep a country afloat.
