[Ed. – And it’s a group of several hundred, with some claiming to be LGBTQ. But since almost everyone on earth is said to be more enlightened than the U.S. about being LGBTQ, it’s not clear what we have to offer these folks.]
According to reporters at the U.S. border, a group of LGBTQ persons from the migrant caravans has arrived in Tijuana, and moved on from the border town to the beach.
The exodus from central American countries began with one caravan and about a thousand people, but it has swelled to four caravans with as many as 7,000 or more, depending on different reports.
Migrants were given an opportunity by the Mexican government to obtain asylum there, including work permits, healthcare, and other aid, but they rejected the offer when it was made clear they would have to settle in southern Mexico. Instead, they have pressed on towards the U.S. border.
Some of the migrants are LGBTQ persons who are seeking asylum based on bigotry and violence against them over their their gender and sexual orientation.
