There was an absurd story from the border this week in the San Diego Union-Tribune. According to the paper, a group of migrants with the Central American caravan marched up to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana on Tuesday and gave the Trump administration a list of demands. Most hilariously, the group said they would gladly go back to Honduras…but only if the U.S. government gave each of them $50,000 with which to start a small business back home.
“It may seem like a lot of money to you,” the group’s organizer told the paper. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”
What seemed like just another outrageous example of how entitled these migrants feel to enter the U.S. turned into something a bit more disturbing when we realized who this organizer actually was. Thanks to some reporting from the Daily Caller, we now know that Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa is not only the appointed “leader” of this faction of migrants, he is also a suspect in a 1987 bombing that injured six U.S. soldiers in Honduras.
From the Daily Caller:
Ulloa has lived in Mexico since 1987 after fleeing Honduras in the wake of a bombing that wounded six soldiers. Ulloa was suspected of planting a bomb in a Chinese restaurant, but received asylum from Mexico, whose government described the suspected terrorist as a “freedom fighter.”
An appropriations bill passed by Congress in December 1987 included Congress’s findings that “the bomb was directed at American soldiers and did in fact wound American soldiers and an American contractor.” The report noted that Ulloa was a suspect in the bombing.
Ulloa continues to deny that he was actually a party to the bombing, but he has admitted to being a member of a left-wing guerilla group called Popular Revolutionary Forces-Lorenzo Zelaya. This group was behind the 1982 hijacking of a plane that turned into a hostage situation involving eight Americans.
This is the kind of outright human garbage waiting at the border and making demands of the U.S. government. This is the kind of person that the Democrats would like to let into the country.
