Here is a little bit of good news, for a change. After nearly a year, the fake refugees have finally been evicted from their encampment at the “El Chaparral” border crossing in Tijuana. The filthy encampment was completely blocking pedestrian crossings on the west side of the border crossing. It had severely hurt businesses and street vendors on both sides of the border and put local residents in Mexico in fear of crime and violence. At its height, the encampment was home to well over a thousand, would-be asylum fraudsters, as well as accompanying criminals, drug users and local homeless persons. There was a significant threat that they would decide to rush the nearby vehicle border crossing.
When asked how long the camp was expected to be there, one local businessman said, they get everything they need free here, why would they want to move? Some prefer a camp like this rather than a formal shelter, because they can drink and use drugs in the camp and it’s better for the sex and drug dealing. One resident said that they are very powerful people, meaning probably that that they have very powerful backers, the organized crime groups that smuggled them them to Tijuana.
Progressive nonprofits, social justice churches and UN agencies are paying to keep these mostly illegitimate refugees on our border, waiting to cross. In spite of that, the size of this particular encampment has been on the decline in recent weeks.
Last time I visited several weeks ago, there were many children and few adults. It seems likely that some of the children had been abandoned there by those, who exploit and abuse small children as a free ticket into the US to live illegally.
The Carmen Serdan federal shelter, mentioned as the new destination of many, was built to house those sent back under the Return-to-Mexico program. However, it is not clear that a significant number of people are being returned under that program after a court ordered it to re-start a few months ago. Biden created large loopholes in his new implementation of the Return-to-Mexico program.

Migrants evicted from El Chaparral by Khennia Reyes
The migrants were transferred to an established shelter.
Tijuana BC.- Approximately 500 migrants were evicted from the “El Chaparral” encampment, which has been there for a year.
The operation initiated at 2 o’clock in the morning with participation of the National Institute of Migration, National Guard, Coepris (Health Department), Civil Protection, Tijuana Welfare Department, Directorate of Migrant Affairs, among other authorities.
The action surprised migrants, Central Americans and Mexicans displaced by violence, who were asked to take their essential belongings to an established shelter.
The family units were relocated to the Carmen Serdan federal shelter; to to the Ambassadores-de-Jesus (church shelter); and the LGBT community in the Jardín-de-las-Mariposas shelter.
During this morning and afternoon, there will be a clean-up at the El Chaparral port of entry.
Univision explains to the Spanish-speaking public how Biden has created a loophole in Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program and how fraudulent asylum seekers can exploit this loophole to avoid being sent back across the border. They just have to claim to have a fear of being returned to Mexico and call an attorney while they are still in the US.
In evaluating these claims of fear in returning to Mexico, the US government will, no doubt, use the same weak standard that they use in the initial “credible fear” interview that allows them so easily to fraudulently gain access to the asylum program. That is, if the interviewer can’t verify what they say, the official has to take their word for it (scouts honor) and release them into the US.
Mexico passes out some humanitarian visas caravan members, so that they can travel easily by bus to the US border without need to hire a cartel coyote to smuggle to them to the border. Irineo Mujica is the leader of this caravan and a couple of weeks earlier he was boasting that he would lead a caravan of ten thousand to the Arizona border. His original caravan had about four thousand members. The Mexican police and National Guard whittled it down to a few hundred via multiple confrontations on the highway. A resident of Chicago, Mujica is reportedly funded by George Soros. Probably, some pro-illegal organization paid for these visas and the appropriate cartel probably got their cut as they normally do.
This seems like it may be a face-saving measure for Mujica for him to be able to disband he group without taking it all the way to the border. A large caravan at the border gets attention from the media, which would embarrass Biden. Having this one disperse will not mean that any less number of illegals cross the US border, but that they will not show up as a large group. This allows the illegal immigration to go forward in record numbers without upsetting too much the American public. The great majority of illegals and asylum fraudsters come quietly in smaller groups, trafficked by the cartels, as Americans sleep on while their country is being colonized.
Handing out visas to fake refugees for various reasons is not unusual for the Mexican government. According to a documentary by National Geographic, “Blood on the Wall”, humanitarian visas can be bought from corrupt officials via a coyote at the Mexican border with Guatemala (in Tapachula) for a few thousand dollars each.
The American English language media moves on to another subject after a while, but that does not mean the record flow of illegals is any less. On the other hand, the Spanish language media continues their intensive coverage over the longer term, informing their viewers how well the invasion is going.
The great majority of these people will be asylum fraudsters who are not qualified to obtain asylum from a court and will end up living illegally in the U.S. They are illegally manipulating our asylum system. Their “sponsors” will be illegals or others close to illegals who have paid the Cartels in a conspiracy to traffick the so-called refugees into the country. This is itself a felony conspiracy. Their trafficking fees often come from the proceeds of illegal activities and they may be put into debt bondage and/or exploited for sexual services. The Biden administration, the State of California and these nonprofits are aiding and abetting the cartels in trafficking illegal aliens into the country. All those involved should be prosecuted and/or deported as may be appropriate.
Asylum tourists and fake refugees in Tijuana looking to gain easy entry in to the US via asylum fraud have developed a new, less-hazardous, easier strategy for crossing the border that also avoids having to pay a huge amount of money to human traffickers. This, according to a video news report from an outlet in Tijuana, Imagen Noticias.
This video was transcribed and automatically translated to English via an Internet service. The service even produces a SRT-formatted file for adding subtitles to the video. I just edited the files to correct obvious errors in the translation and to improve the appearance of the subtitles. The cost is only about a dollar for a short video, like this.
The migrant camp in Tijuana is now shrinking. According to this google-translated article below by the “El Imparcial” website. (El Imparical owns the major newspapers in Tijuana and Mexicali.) They fenced off the camp a couple weeks ago and started monitoring who comes and goes, with criminals and other undesirables not allowed to enter the camp. They are not allowing new migrants to move into the camp, either.
I checked out the camp yesterday. There were US Customs agents manning he guard shacks on the US side going into Mexico and saw a troop of about 20 Mexican National guardsmen at the vehicle crossing going into Mexico. So, they appeared to be prepared in case the migrants try to rush the border via the Mexican vehicle crossing, which is right next to the camp.
This migrant camp is totally blocking the pedestrian crossing on the west side of the port of entry. There is another pedestrian crossing on the east side, but the PEDWEST crossing is the newer crossing and a lot better positioned for access to shops and other tourist attractions.
The camp has caused a huge hardship for the Mexican businesses and street vendors and somewhat less hardship on the US side. Local sentiment near the camp is very much in opposition to the camp being there. When the caravanners rushed the border in 2018, the businessmen and workers in the area counter-rioted against the caravanners in this area, because they feared the border would be closed and impact their livelihood. So, we see here that the U.S. Government is not the only government that puts the interests of their own citizens second to foreigners, who are in this case mostly intent on fraudulently entering the US via manipulation of the asylum process should not be there in the first place.
I am not claiming everything is rosy now, but this may be a little bit of good news. On the other hand, the camp could also be shrinking because they decided to cross illegally or because the US has started accepting them to apply for asylum.
Also, this is only one group of many in Tijuana waiting to cross the border. At any given time there are a couple to a few thousand people in Tijuana waiting at 1-2 dozen shelters and in rented apartments to cross the border illegally and/or defraud the asylum system.
(I made minor corrections to the article below where the google-translation obviously failed.)
Families who are victims of forced displacement continue to arrive, and are prevented by the authorities from entering the camp.
By Khennia Reyes
15 November of 2021
Tijuana, B.C.- Little by little the migrant families that inhabit the El Chaparral camp are decreasing due to the fact that they gave up humanitarian asylum in the United States.
In that area at the time lived more than two thousand people; At the end of October, the municipal directorate of Migrant Assistance counted 769 after placing a metal fence to detect those who enter and leave.
The head of the agency, Enrique Lucero, estimated that there are currently 680 Mexican and Central American children and adults who seek the protection of the North American government.
He said that another factor in the decline in the population of the camp is the pain of separation before the December holidays.
Lucero commented that from October to date 21 people have been assisted in returning to Michoacán, Guerrero and Veracruz.
On the other hand, he acknowledged that families who are victims of forced displacement continue to arrive, who are prevented by the authorities from entering the camp.
“That is the idea, of not populating it anymore, which is work that was not done before. Before they came and were allowed into the camp; We now have a policy of immediately looking for a shelter, then “Grupo Beta” supports us with the transfer, ”said the director.
Currently, the Directorate of Attention to Migrants has a census of 25 shelters, but only supports 12 that are legally constituted and have permits to operate, which are helped by pantries.
Biden Ambassador to Mexico accused Irineo Mujica and other caravan organizers of working with human traffickers and organized crime (Cartels). Mujica may not be paid directly by the Cartels, but they control the trafficking of illegal immigrants, if he was not working with them they would stop him from doing it, because it would compete with their own trafficking business. The cartels are, no doubt, getting their cut of the money that the caravaners have to pay — or some group pays for them — to be transported to the U.S. border.
Mujica is a U.S. citizen, who lives in Chicago, and he is reportedly paid by George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.
The irony in this is that the ambassador’s boss, Joe Biden, is also complicit with the cartels, because it is his illegal policy of releasing fraudulent asylum seekers into the US that makes it possible for the cartels to profit from the trafficking of millions of adults and children to and across the border. If he wanted to do so, Biden could put a stop to this mass human trafficking — and the human misery associated with it — overnight by just changing his policy.
So far, Mexican authorities have been chipping away at Mujica’s caravan. It has dwindled from 4,000 down to less than a thousand participants. Mujica claims that he is going to meet up with other groups on November 18th and eventually he will have 10,000 caravaners headed for the Arizona border. It seems that the Mexican National Guard may well disrupt these plans, too, however.
Maniacal, radical progressives, like Mujica are angry with Biden, because they think he is not destroying America fast enough. There are more illegal crossers coming, who don’t come in caravans. With these caravans, they are trying to embarrass Biden. This is why Biden has unleashed the ambassador and the Mexican authorities on Mujica. Mujica has led several caravans and he is the most prominent caravan leader. They want to discredit him in his ability to raise a caravan and knock him out of the business, because he is not a team player. His caravan may well evaporate before reaching the border. This is my opinion, at least. Let’s see, whether Mujica shows up at the border with 10,000 caravanners in the next weeks, as he claims he will do.
However, it is not because Biden has had a change of heart. Large caravans produce bad publicity for Biden and more public reaction against his efforts to promote illegal immigration via asylum fraud. There are thousands of non-caravanners coming across the border every day, but they come in small groups, more quietly, without generating nearly as much negative publicity for this illegal invasion of America as do a relatively small, much less significant number of caravaners.
Things are looking very bad already for Democratic prospects in the mid-term congressional elections. The last thing Biden needs are large, noisy caravans showing up at the border during this next year before the elections.
Thousands of Brazilians are flying to Tijuana, monthly, to take advantage of Biden’s criminally permissive open-border’s policy, reports the El Imparcial website in Tijuana. Open-borders activists have requested an investigation by the Mexican National Institute of Immigration (INM), as to whether these people are being trafficked from Brazil by the Cartels or whether they are just flying to Tijuana on a tourist visa and then seeking the help of a cartel coyote in crossing the border. There is concern by the activists that if they seek a a cartel coyote when they arrive, they could run into the wrong people and be kidnapped, tortured and held for ransom via a threat to the family that they will be killed if they don’t pay.
International travel by plane is cheap now and people fly from all over the world to cross the border illegally in large numbers. Of course, this is unsustainable. Mainly, it is progressive Democrats, who during the Obama era engineered this system of mass fraud of the asylum system, in order to eventually increase the numbers of progressive voters in the US and ultimately destabilize the country. Another motivation is to provide cheap labor for business interests, so some Republicans quietly support it, also.
Biden is the king of human trafficking. He is the most important motivator and enabler of human/child trafficking in the world at this time. It is his policy that requires families to be released immediately into the country if they pay to have a child trafficked with them to the border. The Department of Homeland Defense is forced to illegally assist in the transport of trafficked children to other illegals in the US, who may be a parent or relative or may be someone pretending to be, for unknown criminal purposes. There is no way to be sure and conspiracy to traffick a person/child into the US, even to their illegal parents, is a felony. It should be prosecuted, not rewarded.
Below is the google-translated article. The comments in parenthesis are my own.
Since April of this year, CBP San Diego has registered a significant increase in illegal crossings by Brazilians on its border with Baja California.
Tijuana BC.- Since April, an average of two thousand Brazilians have tried to cross into the United States irregularly from Baja California each month, according to Customs and Border Protection (CPB).
From April to September 2020, 623 Brazilians were insured, but the number shot up to 11,938 in the same period but this year; an increase of 1,816%.
The situation has prompted migrant activists to ask the National Migration Institute to investigate a human trafficking network.
They search for a place to stay
José María García Lara, founder of the Movimiento Juventud 2000 association (a shelter for illegals), said that they only enter the shelters to eat and then they looked for hotels or houses for themselves to stay.
For José Luis Pérez Canchola, counselor of the Mexican Academy of Human Rights, the National Institute of Migration (INM) stated that it should initiate an investigation, because the lives of Brazilian migrants could be in danger. He warned of the following.
The line of investigation by the INM should be for traffcking. How are they coming out? Almost everyone by plane? There is a strong possibility that it is organized trafficking and it should be investigated as such.”
Pérez Canchola commented that if the intention of the Brazilians is to reach North America in an irregular manner, they will look for human traffickers and the traffickers will take advantage of it to extort money from the families of the migrants (by kidnapping them).
He recalled that a week ago a group of 70 migrants, the majority from Brazil, was rescued from a trailer box near the border wall with the United States.
“Brazilian migration has been going on for months, there was even a time when 20, 30, 50 were arriving, daily six or seven months ago, they arrived with their tourist visa. How do you plead if they bring a tourist visa? They arrive in the city and then disappear. For me it is trafficking and they are somehow crossing somewhere into the United States.” said the activist.
For his part, Francisco Garduño Yáñez, commissioner of the INM, during his visit to the Tijuana-San Ysidro checkpoint, acknowledged the problem but in Veracruz, Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosí, where they rescue at least 200 migrants from containers of trailers while trying to reach the US border.
‘Yes (the migrants) are victims, the law says that they have the right to a humanitarian visa (from Mexico) and if they also want to return, as happens in many of the families and women who bring their children, they are supported,’ he said.
I google-translated this article at the bottom from a Tijuana news site with minor corrections and reposted it, so that people can read about what’s happening on the other side and understand better how would-be illegal immigrates come to the border. There are a number of ways and motivations for illegals to be smuggled, but this is probably the most common situation, a lot of people are crammed into the back of a freight truck and smuggled through the many military checkpoints that Mexico has on the highways. They are likely going to try to claim asylum. If the Mexican authorities find illegals without the proper visa and paperwork, they will send them back, unless there is someone that can be bribed, which is often not possible. This is why the Cartels are needed to smuggle them, because Mexico does not generally allow them through.
I estimate his truck’s cargo area is about 15 feet by 9 feet, that is 135 square feet and they found 75 people in the back of this truck. There were then less than 2 square feet per person. They most likely travelled the entire way across Mexico crammed together like this in a small space without ventilation or cooling. 30 of them, almost half are children, because the Democrats, by design, have made it so that if you drag a small child with you on such a dangerous and torturous trip, you can use the child as a get-in-free pass into the US. This is actually “trafficking of children”, smuggling children for an illegal purposes, though may not be for sexual purposes. It is also trafficking of adults. Many politicians support this kind of illegal immigration, for political or financial reasons. People who do this and/or make it possible ought to be prosecuted and put in prison. If you or I did this to children and were caught, we would certainly be put in prison for a very long time, but not if you are an illegal alien exploiting the child to defraud our asylum system.
Biden is the world’s biggest trafficker of children and humans, because he invited the whole world to come like this and has made it possible via his executive orders. I voted for Trump, but am not a fan of his. However, this is a much worse crime than Trump ever did. The progressive Democrats have designed and implemented an illegal immigration scam, so they can gain more government-dependent, serf-like, progressive voters and eventually dominate the Country, politically. This is, of course, treasonous, an attempt to destroy the constitutional sovereignty of the US, much worse even than storming the Capitol. The Republicans are to some extent complicit in this, to the extent that they are not aggressively exposing and pursuing these crimes by the Democrats.
Why is it that progressive leftists and the media can pin a lie, for example, such as represented by that irrelevant, photo-shopped photo of a crying child, on Trump or other lies on the Border Patrol, much easier than we can pin the truth on them? It’s those who support illegal immigration and asylum fraud, who are overwhelmingly responsible for the abuse of children in this criminal enterprise of trafficking illegals into the US via the cartels.
A truck that was hiding 75 South American migrants was seized by elements of the National Guard when it was traveling on International Avenue.
By Ángel González and Khennia Reyes
November 06, 2021
Tijuana BC.- Elements of the National Guard detected a freight truck that was transporting 75 people of foreign origin, most of them Brazilians, on International Avenue on Thursday night.
At 9:00 p.m., the elements stopped a cargo truck and after making a review of the cargo area of said unit, with signs of the company ‘Transportes Amparo’, they found a number of people sitting inside.
(Blogger’s NOTE: “Amparo” can mean protection, help or asylum. So the sign on the truck can be taken to mean “Asylum Transport”. There’s no reason that smugglers cannot also have a ironic sense of humor.)
Personnel from the National Institute of Migration arrived moments later and reviewed the status of each of the people.
After carrying out a review of the documentation of each of the people, it was discovered that in total the truck was carrying 75 people.
The report by the authorities indicated that there were 58 people of Brazilian origin, 16 from Venezuela and one born in Portugal.
It was also detailed that there were 17 complete families from Brazil and five from Venezuela; 24 are women, 21 men and a total of 30 are minors.
All foreigners were channeled to the National Migration Institute, where they were granted temporary status for humanitarian reasons.
For their part, the truck driver and his companion, whose identities were not revealed, were turned over to the Attorney General’s Office, pending their legal status being determined.
They take advantage
Human traffickers in Tijuana are taking advantage of the desperation of migrants to cross into the United States irregularly, said the director of “Embajadores de Jesús”, Pastor Gustavo Banda.
Faced with necessity, the migrant will try to invent or do the impossible to reach the United States. People are desperate to cross into the United States right now, but from September until now no one has passed. Everyone sees the promised solution in the United States without knowing that it is not as easy as they think,
He said that the Mexican government also encourages migrants to go to the ‘polleros’ (smugglers), since it denies them the possibility of travel in Mexican territory due to the lack of a humanitarian visa. which also prevents them from working.
“As long as the authorities in Tapachula, Chiapas, close the doors, the only thing they are going to cause is that criminal groups take advantage of this. Migration will never stop, so you have to look for other different measures. We must offer them humanitarian visas, because Mexico denies them, it does not give them a humanitarian visa so that people can at least work, ‘said Banda.
100 foreign families in 1 day
He commented that in recent months the arrival of Brazilians to the shelter has been occurring repeatedly; Sometimes in a single day they receive 100 families, but they do not stay in the shelter, because unlike migrants of other nationalities, they have financial support.
The activist explained that Brazilians are also fleeing poverty, lack of work and violence from armed groups in the slums.
(Blogger’s NOTE: Fleeing poverty, unemployment and crime are not qualifications for asylum in the US. Most hope to be released in the US so they can live here illegally until the next amnesty is granted by Democrats.)
According to the Migration Policy Unit, 612 Brazilians were handed over to the National Migration Institute (INM) in Baja California for not providing valid credentials for their stay in Mexican territory from January to September of the present.
A fence has been put up around the camp of about 1,000 people near the Chaparral border crossing on the Mexican side, in order for the police to be able to control who goes in and out. This will much discourage the illegal activity in the camp and probably greatly reduce the number of people staying there, if they cannot continue the reported drug sells and sexual services in the camp, as before.
This is in preparation for the US to start allowing foreign citizens with tourist visas to cross into the US. During the pandemic US citizens have always been able to cross into Mexico by car or by foot at the border crossings and return without any proof of a Covid test or vaccination. Though this crossing was blocked by the camp, there is another pedestrian crossing on the east side of the port of entry that has always been open during the pandemic.
The US Government and media misled the public during the pandemic and made many US citizens and permanent residents believe that they could not cross the border and return, unless it was “essential business”. That only applied to non-resident, foreign citizens with visas for non-essential travel coming into the US.
At that end of the article the Mayor of Tijuana says that the mission of most of these people is “to enter the US legally“. That’s not true, the mission of most of these people is to fraudulently manipulate our asylum system, so that they can be released into the US to live illegally with very little risk of ever being deported. They often exploit and terribly abuse small children in order to fraudulently gain entry into the US, because the US government has intentionally made that possible for child abusers and child traffickers for political and economic reasons.
Mayor of Tijuana denies that there is pressure from the United States to evict migrant camp.

TIJUANA, Mexico – A man approaches a group of municipal police in Tijuana. He takes out an ID from his bag and with it, he is granted entrance to the migrant camp set up for months in El Chaparral.
This is the new dynamic for hundreds of migrants living in the site after local authorities surrounded the area with around 180 linear meters of chain-link fence on Thursday night.
The objective, according to authorities, is to carry out a census of the people who live in said settlement, and grant them an ID so that in addition to identifying them, they have control of entrances and exits.
‘Who enters and who leaves will be registered, and we are going to provide them with security and human rights conditions,’ said Tijuana Mayor Montserrat Caballero on Friday.
In total, on Thursday night, 738 migrants were counted out of an estimated 1230 people. This Friday, it is planned to continue with the registration of those who were missing.
It was found that most of the people living in the site are of Mexican nationality, in addition to migrants from Colombia, Brazil, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and a person from the United States, Caballero said.
It is intended to offer support to families who want to return to their countries of origin, and recommend asylum for those who prefer to stay in the city, Caballero added. A family from Honduras has already requested there return, he said.
This camp was set up since the beginning of the year right at the entrance of the PedWest pedestrian crossing on its Mexican side. This border crossing has been closed since April 2020 in response to the pandemic.
But a few days from now the United States will reopen the land border with Mexico to tourists who are fully vaccinated, it is thought that the crosswalk could reopen operations.
A spokeswoman with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said in connection with PedWest that ‘the agency will continue to work closely with its international partners to determine how to resume travel safely and sustainably.’
Caballero denied that there is pressure from the US government to clear the entrance to the pedestrian crossing.
“Pressure for the United States, there is none. On the contrary, there is patience and the desire to support what we need for the opening, ”said Caballero. ‘It will not open on November 8 (…) we will still continue with this problem, but the important thing is first to have the certainty of the information.’
However, he did acknowledge that the goal is for the space to eventually be cleared again.
“The goal is that, that we can once again travel there and that people relocate, (either to) their places of origin, in Tijuana, or achieve their mission of legally moving to the United States. I am not the one to limit anyone’s dreams and I am here to help them ”.
