They’re stuck in Tijuana with nowhere to go.
The weather has been unseasonably cold and there are reports many are sick – along with those who were unwell even before the weather turned.
The Mayor of Tijuana and a great many of the people there want them gone.
The United States has made it clear for over a month that members of this “caravan” will not be allowed across the border. The “caravan” people knew it, the organizers/facilitators of the “caravan” knew it and the Mexican authorities knew it. But they, apparently, assumed that President Trump would cave.
What do they do next? No one knows.
I hope it isn’t anything stupid. I hope the people who, for political reasons, want that border breached don’t convince them to do something that will result in a tragedy.
One way or the other, we’ll find out very soon. Because something has got to give.
Keep your fingers crossed that this resolves reasonably well. But don’t don’t expect it.
