The New York Times recently shared a report on the number of migrant families crossing the southwest border, and let’s just say, the amount will make you question everything you believe in!
Thus far, over 76,000 migrants have been reported as crossing the border without authorization and the numbers are continuing to grow.
Those affiliated with Customs and Border Protection continue to bitch about the fact that they are being slammed to capacity and that they are at their breaking point. They are crying real tears about their inability to control a growing number of migrants that seems to multiply out of the blue on a daily basis.
But let’s be real! Are the migrants really multiplying out of the blue or is their growth being assisted by a money source that is linked to American politics?
Let’s start at the beginning, shall we?
Before we can understand how so many migrants are crossing the border, we must first attempt to understand how they physically got to the border in the first place with a basic breakdown. The distance between Honduras and Mexico is approximately 1,211 miles. It takes 20 days to walk this distance and probably longer when you have children in tow.
According to Live Science, a human being can only survive 10 days maximum without water (4 days if in the desert). Looking at these calculations, we can’t help but notice that it would be virtually impossible for a group of poor individuals without food or water to survive a walk from Honduras to Mexico without some form of assistance. Currently, over 76,000 people have made this trip on foot, supposedly, and only seem to suffer when they get into Mexico. I don’t know about you, but something seems fishy.
Why migrants are such a big American deal
If you think about it, the issues surrounding the asylum seekers became really big when Trump wanted to push his big wall. Keep in mind, he spoke of this wall long before the migrants became an issue in Honduras. So now, the discussion of the wall has led to a sudden burst of poor migrants who are risking life and limb to get into a country that is treating them like shit before they even cross the border.
It was already discovered that interest groups were funding the migrants and providing them with transportation. It can be assumed that these same groups are also paying for gas, food, water, and medical supplies. It’s interesting that America is so big and bad when it comes to its power over other countries, yet suddenly it keeps getting kicked in the balls by a group of poor people who are rushing here to be taken care of by its citizens. Trump has continued to use the migrants as his stepping board to encourage Congress to pay for a wall bordering the U.S. and Mexico, yet no one seems to care that the wall won’t stop the problem of illegal immigration.
If we are being honest, we will admit that the migrants have been the best damn thing to happen to the Democrats since Obamacare and they know it! This doesn’t excuse the interest of the Republicans, however. The migrants have provided both parties with purpose, a platform, and a cause to ride…and yes, they are both riding the poor migrants like a wild bull.
When we hear of unauthorized migrants crossing the border, we should always think twice. They were authorized long before they even left their own land and they serve a political purpose. Unfortunately, they are paying the price for political gain…but hey…America has shown throughout history that a group must pay for the advancement of those in power. This is no different.
