Updates: Eagle Pass, Texas Border Rally Sunday, March 3

Oath Keepers, Bikers for Trump, and Latinos for Trump launch a “human wall” border security operation along Rio Grand in Eagle Pass, Texas.

From Stewart Rhodes, Founder of Oath Keepers:

Saturday, March 2, we started our boots on the ground operation along the border in Texas, with patriots coming from as far away as Florida and South Dakota to help us stand watch on the border in support of Border Patrol.

We kicked it off with a prayer, a pledge, and a few words in honor of Texas Independence Day, and also a moment of silence and remembrance for the men who fell at the Alamo, which fell on March 6.

We had local residents speak their minds about the reality on the border.

  1. Pueblos sin Fronteras (Peoples Without Borders) is driving the caravans. This from the Mexican Secretary of the Interior Olga Sanchez Cordero, who accused the group of being one of the organizers of the Central American migrant caravans that are entering Mexico for the purpose of reaching the United States. She also stated that mass migration in caravans is a “new phenomenon” that will become a trend in the future.

    Recently the Mexican government arrested leaders of Peoples Without Borders accusing them of human trafficking. Secretary Sanchez Cordero said Mexican authorities detected a pair of individuals wanted by Interpol among the migrants of the caravan that entered the country on January 17th and stayed in Piedras Negras. She explained about work being done on a data exchange protocol that allows an almost immediate detection of individuals who are not permitted to enter Mexico.

    “We have identified the leaders of non-governmental organizations that are recruiting these caravans, specifically there are some from Pueblos sin Fronteras,” Secretary Sanchez Cordero said. “You have to see who is promoting the caravans, who are the leaders, how do these leaders recruit people and how they carry out this unusual movement, but very soon it will turn into something normal to have caravans northward.”

    Sanchez Cordero said that if Mexico is agreeing to receive these migrants while their asylum applications are being processed in the United States, it is due to the “humanitarian and defense of human rights” policy promoted by the new President of Mexico Obrador. She remarked on the new government’s change in approach to the migration issue. It now places an emphasis on attacking the causes of migration, particularly with respect to the exodus from Central America. This is something “radically different” from previous administrations which were only doing “containment and mass deportation.”

    The minister also pointed out that the flow of Mexican migrants towards the U.S. is practically negative: “We are not a migratory flow problem, but we want to be part of the solution.”

    Secretary Sanchez Cordero made her remarks in a speech at an event at the Migration Policy Institute at the start of her visit to Washington, during which she met with Secretary of Dept. of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and with some members of Congress. The Migration Policy Institute is a nonprofit think tank in Washington D.C. which espouses liberal views on immigration.

    The above is my summary of a story reported Friday in el Universal:
    https://www.eluniversal.com.mx/nacion/impulsa-pueblos-sin-fronteras-las-caravanas-segob

  2. P.S. I’ve not been able to confirm the arrests of any leaders of Pueblos sin Fronteras by Mexican authorities. Nothing is reported in the Mexican or American media, other than the reports of several criminals being detected among the migrants in the Piedras Negras shelter, who were detained and deported, and in early February 2 members of Pueblos sin Fronteras being detained in Mexico and then deported back to Honduras. Have put a question about this out to a couple of places and will report back.
    .
    The organization Pueblos sin Fronteras issued a statement on Thursday Feb. 28th after Secretary Sanchez Cordero’s remarks. Irineo Mujica, a representative of Pueblos sin Fronteras, rejected the accusations of Sanchez Cordero. He said that the accusations are part of an onslaught by the new government of Mexico to criminalize organizations which stand in defense of the rights of migrants. Pueblos sin Fronteras said in their statement, “We have never organized or recruited any caravan from Central America.”

  3. PPS. Re. the arrests of leaders of Pueblos sin Fronteras, this statement in the el Universal article is most probably referring to the arrests of 2 members of the organization in early and mid February.

    One man is Carlos David Cueva Ramírez, a Honduran, who was initially reported as having been “disappeared.” Later it was learned that Mexican police had detained him and the Mexican government deported him back to Honduras, allegedly for accompanying Central American migrants in transit to the U.S. border. He arrived in Honduras on Friday Feb. 8th and said that he had been deported by the National Institute of Migration (INM), despite having a migratory card which allowed him to be permanently in Mexico. Cueva Ramírez said that Mexican federal police and INM agents detained him on Monday Feb. 4th along the coast of Chiapas when he was accompanying a group of 400-500 migrants who were traveling in a caravan. He said that Interpol agents asked him if Pueblos sin Fronteras charged the migrants, why were they accompanying them, and if they sold organs.

    The other individual is Cristobal Sanchez Sanchez, of Mexican nationality, who was arrested by Mexican federal police in Mexico City on Friday Feb. 15th. He was one of a few people arrested, including 2 women who are human rights activists, when they were at an entrance to a large sports stadium, which was sheltering a new migrant caravan. Sanchez was released shortly afterwards, since no charges were brought against him. Police reportedly were sent there because authorities had received complaints from neighbors against a group of migrants who had consumed alcohol and disturbed the peace the night before. The police arrived in the afternoon to persuade the migrants to leave the area.

    In a statement Pueblos sin Fronteras said that human rights defender Cristobal Sanchez Sanchez is the sixth detainee of Mexican nationality. But it’s not clear whether all six are members of their organization or if some are activists working with them.
