There was once a day when illegal immigrants tried to hide the fact that they were blatantly violating immigration laws, but now, not only do they break the law in record numbers, but they are protesting for easier access to the American border.
Honduran Immigrants rallied in Mexico City this week to protest to the Mexican government demanding safer passage across the country on their way to cross the American border.
These immigrants from Central America have risked their lives to make the long trek to the southern American border facing dangers of the road from falling off the trains, to violent gangs and corrupt police who are raping and murdering at their leisure.
Central American Illegal Immigrants ride “The Beast” on their way to the southern United States border
Thousands are catching a ride from south to northern Mexico on a freight train they have called “La Bestia” which means “The Beast.” They call it that “The Beast” because many times, people will fall off the train and get caught underneath the wheels losing life and limb in the process.
Along the route many will end up either losing their limbs or being killed as a result of falling under the wheels.
Many others end up being robbed or attacked by gangs.
If that is not enough of a risk, if you make it alive, you still have a chance of getting caught and arrested.
During a protest Monday, more than a dozen people in attendance had lost a limb in their attempt to cross the border.
They say it should not be that dangerous and are calling for safer alternatives.
The whole ordeal seems unbelievable. Why would you put yourself and your family in such danger?
If you think about it, the answer is clear. They have a chance to live off the American welfare system, which to them seems like a splendor of riches that they can only dream of in their current countries.
Obama’s immigration policies are not only causing enormous strain on our economy by paying for all these entitlements, but he is equally guilty in giving these poor souls false hope that gives them the will to risk their lives in pursuit of an entitlement system that will not be there in 18 short months.
Their lives are on Obama’s hands. It’s time to reverse these policies, let these people work to fix the internal politics and economies of their home country instead of just abandoning it with the hopes of free stuff in America.
