With the U.S. media insisting that the so-called “migrant caravan” invaders are just peaceful women and children, news broke yesterday that a second large group of invaders erupted in a battle with Mexican police bloodying the police with sticks and rocks. Some police also reported that the migrants had weapons on them, too.
On October 29, hundreds of illegal aliens in a second large group tried to break through into Mexico from Guatemala. Mexican police were on hand to stop the group’s progress but instead of obeying police, the caravan of invaders erupted in violence. A battle broke out between the two sides with police ending up bloodied and battered and the migrants breaking through unimpeded.
According to Time magazine:
Several hundred migrants tried to cross the Suchiate River from Guatemala to Mexico en masse on Monday, but were met by ranks of Mexican federal police who blocked them from entering.
The standoff on the riverbank follow a more violent confrontation that occurred on the nearby bridge over the river the night before, when migrants tossed rocks and used sticks against Mexico police. One migrant was killed Sunday night by a head wound, but the cause was unclear.
While migrants on the bridge had appeared to be preparing for a second day of confrontations early Monday, instead they tried the route taken by the first caravan 10 days ago after it, too, was blocked: turn to the river below.
Then there was this…
Guatemala’s Interior Ministry said the second group had wounded Guatemalan police and used children as human shields, and Guatemalan firefighters confirmed that a 26-year-old Honduran had been killed from a blow to the head.
Mexican police also reported that some of these invaders were tossing Molotov cocktails at them, Breitbart News reported.
These are the “innocent” and “peaceful” “migrants” that the left wants us to throw open our borders to allow into our country.
The large group of invaders still walked right into Mexico after that country’s police were beaten down and pushed aside.
Finally, I want to warn you all about passing around a fake news photo being linked to this attack.
Twitter user Mike Allen, for instance, tweeted a photo of a bloodied Mexican police officer that was said to have come from the confrontation with the migrant army.
Mexican police are being brutalized by members of this caravan as they attempt to FORCE their way into Mexico – And WE are supposed to believe these are just poor, helpless refugees seeking asylum??? I am 100% behind POTUS deploying our military! #ma4t pic.twitter.com/79WLKwWe8s

But don’t pass this photo on. This photo was actually taken several years ago in a whole different part of Mexico. It was NOT taken during the recent migrant army confrontation at all. Don’t pass on this fake news.
