Migrants to Trump: Give us $50K each or Asylum…You have 72 Hours! (Read Their Letter)

Posted by FactReal on December 13, 2018

MIGRANTS IN TIJUANA DEMAND ENTRY OR $50,000 EACH TO GO HOME
Their ultimatum is full of contradictions:
* While they want to come into the U.S., they blame America for their countries’ problems.
* When they say U.S. interference offends them, they also ask Trump to remove their president from office.
* While they claim they believe in respectful dialogue, they give Trump 72 hours deadline to respond to their demands.
* They claim to be peaceful, but threaten the U.S. with more migrations if the U.S. doesn’t remove their military bases and companies from their territory because they offend their homeland.
* They chant communist slogans but leftist policies are destroying their countries. On video below, you see them chanting, “The people united will never be defeated.” (“El pueblo unido jamás será vencido.”)

Paraphrasing their letter: “Either pay $50,000 to each of us to go home or let us into the U.S….because we are fleeing due to the 100-year U.S. intervention in Central America…if you don’t want to be invaded by more migrants, stop intervening in our country…but we want you to remove the Honduran President from office…Ah! And your military bases and companies offend us, but we still want your U.S. dollars ($50,000 for each of us)…and we believe in respectful dialogue, but we are giving you 72 hours to respond …with all our heart…on you depends the best outcome…or else…respectfully!!”

VERBATIM VERSION: (Translated to English; original in Spanish)
Translation:

Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico December 7, 2018

Donald Trump

President of the United States of America

Your Excellency, Mr. President

By this means may you receive a cordial greeting from all the members of the Honduran Migrants Caravan and other countries of Central America.

The purpose of this is to request you in the most respectful manner, allow us the free entry to all the members of the exodus to the United States. We are a peaceful conglomerate composed of families made up of women, children and men, most of them young men who are fleeing from poverty, insecurity and repression caused by the dictatorial government of Juan Orlando Hernández and by the economic, political and military interference that your country has been exercising for more than 100 years in our country and other Central American countries.

We remind you that if the US does not want more migrations, it must put a stop to economic, political and military intervention in our territory. Therefore, we ask you to take your 13 military bases and all their extractive companies that offend and loot our homeland.

If you do not want our entry into the United States, we ask you to take Juan Orlando Hernández and grant us an amount of US $ 50,000, so that each of us can return to our homeland.

We believe in an open and respectful dialogue, but with the desire to follow up on this request, we establish a deadline of 72 hours to receive a response, from the time it is delivered to your representative in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico.

Wishing with all our heart that your response will be positive, we thank you for granting us asylum to protect our safety or our life. On you depends the best outcome of this humanitarian crisis as a result of the dictatorship in Honduras.
