REPORT: Central American Migrants Set Fire to Mexican Immigration Facility


A group of Central American migrants facing deportation set fire to a Mexican immigration facility in an apparent attempt to escape. The alleged arson comes at a time when Mexican authorities reported the use of firearms and Molotov cocktails within the migrant caravans as they make their way through Mexico to the United States.

The fire was reportedly started at a facility dual-purposed as a checkpoint and makeshift detention center for Mexico’s National Migration Institute (INM) in Pijijiapan, Chiapas, when a group of migrants housed there set fire to their mattresses, Televisa Noticias reported. According to local public safety director Jaime Marroquin, authorities were housing 21 men, five women, and three children which were in the process of being deported. The migrants reportedly set fires to give cover to their escape.  MORE

Armed Migrants in Caravan Opened Fire on Mexican Cops, Say Authorities.

Mexican authorities arrested two Hondurans who allegedly shot at federal police officers escorting the migrant caravan across the southern state of Chiapas. The attack follows shortly after government warnings about Molotov cocktail attacks around a second caravan near the border with Guatemala.

The attack took place near Ignacio Zaragoza, Chiapas, when members of Mexico’s Federal Police were escorting the migrant caravan as part of “Operativo Caminante” or “Operation Walker” across the southern border state. According to Mexico’s Interior Secretariat, two men identified only as 22-year-old “Jerson” and 17-year-old “Carlos” spotted the group of police officers guarding the caravan and began firing at them.

The attackers’ pistol jammed, allowing police officers to arrest them without any injuries. Federal authorities seized a .380 caliber Glock with nine rounds still in the magazine.  MORE

  1. It will be interesting to see just how ‘tolerant’ the Mexicans are of the low-lifes using Mexico as a foolish springboard for the invasion of America by gypsies, tramps and thieves that are willing to trample anyone attempting to impede their passage.

  2. These “migrants” are gonna get just a little bit more aggressive and end up getting themselves “lethal weaponed”. They are revealing themselves for the punk/thugs they actually are. Shoot them and be done with it.

  3. Just more info for our troops at the border to consider when constructing whatever it is they’re constructing to deal with the invaders.

    But what if all of those conspiracy theories about FEMA camps built by…the Deep State?…are true, except now Trump has control of them?

  4. Their behavior highlights that they are not mere migrants, they are determined invaders. Building increasing evidence why they need to be kept out. A nation isn’t preserved by borders alone, but by preserving the culture within those borders. Deluting and destroying the culture is what destroys the nation.

    Someone please remove the “m” key from the “reporters” keyboards, and color the “i” key a bright fluorescent orange color so they can find it & be a reminded to use it to type “invaders”.

  5. The press referred to the invaders as poor and “hungry” peasants fleeing tyranny. Most of those viewed on cameras were young men and the few women mixed in looked anything but deprived of food. If they were livestock they’d be ready for market.
