Mexico City

BBC NEWS

In the capital, city officials prepared food and shelter as well as medical services to those arriving at the Jesus Martinez “Palillo” stadium.

‘There are pregnant women, many children, vulnerable people and we have to guarantee the space and the services they require,’  said city leader Jose Ramon Amieva Galvez.

Many of those arriving were so exhausted they only grabbed a blanket before falling asleep.  ‘From what I brought from Honduras I have nothing.  Even yesterday I walked barefoot,’ Kenia Alvarado, 21, told El Universal newspaper.

Residents of Mexico City have donated clothes and shoes for the travelers, local media reported.”

At a campaign rally in Montana, US President Trump praised  troops installing razor wire along the US-Mexico border to stop an approaching migrant caravan, saying “barbed wire, used properly, can be a beautiful sight.”

“For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.”  Matthew 25:42-44

Shame upon us!  The wealthiest nation in the Western Hemisphere sends troops and  lays barbed wire.  One of the poorest nations feeds, clothes and gives shelter.  How dare the United States call itself Christian?

    It’s heartbreaking. Just this morning I read a propaganda site here on WP saying these refugees has come across the border and taken over a stadium in Washington DC. There’s no end to the lies.

      Sad indeed. My Grandpa always said to believe nothing you hear and only half of what you see. I watch a lot of BBC, Aljazeera, and Reuters. Thanks for the visit.
