Las Playas is a beach neighborhood of Tijuana, which is on the border and a hot spot for open-borders political activity. This is where Enrique Morones, founder of the Border Angels, had his so-called refugee shelter, called the “Embajada Migrante shelter”. Morones is internationally know and was a frequent guest on national talk shows, such as Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News.
Morones appears to have been fired by the Border Angels last fall for unknown causes after six months of paid leave. To learn more, see this post, Enrique Morones Ousted From ‘Border Angels’.
Enrique and the new management of the Border Angels had a public spat recently about plans o close his shelter on the beach in La Playas.
There was a dramatic mural of the Border Angel wings on the side of the building and a sign with their logo was above the door. This is the way it looked last Fall (of 2019).
In March of 2020, the wall has been repainted and all traces of the Border Angels removed as seen in this second photo.
The new management of Border Angels closed the shelter, saying that it’s not in livable condition. Morones was known for charging those “refugees” and illegal border crossers, who stayed there, daily rent.
In addition the Border Angels has fired the manager of the shelter, Hugo Castro, on February 21, 2020, whom Morones often called his right-hand man.
It appears that he used the space mainly for propaganda purposes and for storage and probably charged a couple dollars rent per day to encourage fake refugees and illegal crossers not to move in and, if they did, not to stay too long.
