    It’s all a game until somebody dies :(

    Already hearing about tear gas being fired at migrants.

    Yep.
    Then again, if they rush the border they are lucky someone or someones haven't been shot.

    If they rush the border and harm border agents or Americans living nearby, remember who supported them.

    That's a whole lot of business lost close to the border on the Mexican side. Some businesses might shut down for good over this.

    Yes hey welcome back. How many recipes did it cost you? :p

    On topic: I hope everyone at the border thinks twice before acting.

    BOTH sides are between a rock and a hard place. The caravan is not welcomed in Tijuana and cops and cartels are taking a toll on them. Things are pretty nasty so I’m guessing the caravan is going to push through pretty soon due to how bad things are for them there right now

    Asking the cartels to think twice about how to resolve anything is probably futile...

    I think the immigrants overpowering the Mexican authorities and charging towards the US border definitely makes the situation a lot worse.

    I’m alll for legal immigration and acceptance of refugees, but brute force and disrepect of the government/authorities is a bit disturbing. I’m also not entirely sure about the US judge’s ruling that refugees can enter the country before they apply for refugee status. Perhaps more problematic is that one judge anywhere in the country can have such a major impact on federal legislation and policy.

    This is all just one giant mess that highlights the need for reform on immigration.

    Will they shoot and bomb them like they did in Gaza?

    Such a distortion of the facts. Maybe the US will bomb Mexico if the Mexican government starts launching rockets indescriminately at population centers within America.

    And I believe pictures are actually Palestinians burning tires in attempt to blind the Israeli border forces from people trying to raid the border- not Israel bombing Gaza. Remember how Hamas was literally paying people to get shot trying to cross the border as part of their propoganda campaign. And when Gazans fly kites with incendiary devices to light farmland on fire, you must really wonder what their intentions are crossing the border.

    I put 2 pictures from Gaza and 2 pictures from the California border :p They are starting to look similar ;) The last protest and march in Gaza I believe started peacefully but ended up bloody. Let’s see how this one ends up. Knowing Trump it should end up peacefully :p:D;)

    I think Trump would enjoy it if somebody dies.

    I was referring to pictures 2 and 3 with the billowing black smoke. The Gaza protests never had any intention of being peaceful, rather a provocative action meant to stir up trouble.

    The immigrants in Tiajuana overpowering the police and raising the border crossing zone sounds less than peaceful and sounds like they are the primary instigators in this fiasco. That said, the Mexican police don’t exactly have the best reputation.

    If I’m not mistaken the US Military is technically not allowed to intervene directly in immigration issues. So I don’t think we need to worry about the military bombing Mexico.

    You’re right. The Israeli military was always going to open fire on Gaza.

    Maybe they should have applied for 'asylum' in their country of origin?

    But, no. They aren't being processed fast enough for their tastes so they decide that they are entitled and storm the border.

    Good job defending our borders.

    Applying for asylum in your own country makes no sense.
