#1  In the impoverished Mexican town of Tapachula, a short distance from the Guatemalan border, patience is wearing thin. “We’re used to seeing them [migrants] pass through but they didn’t stay before. Now it’s out of control," says Maria at her taco stand.

Hmmm..wonder if the Orange Man reads history. For years Washington complained and Mexico City did nothing in stopping the Apache from crossing the Rio Grande and raiding Texas and the southwest territories. The Donks obstructed the Army budget (sound familiar?), but when the Apache raids became too frequent the Texas Donk delegation busted open funds needed to deal with the problem. We put full pressure on the border to include hot pursuit involving confrontation with obstructing Mexican military. Finally the Apache found it easier to raid and loot among the local Mexican population. That got a response from Mexico City.

#3 AMLO is a friend of Corbyn's? If Corbyn wins in GB, send the colonizers there! At least it will be a contrast to the "Asians"!
