The financial burden on the border city is only one cost. Add in crime, illness, and unsanitary conditions…

As thousands of immigrants gather in Tijuana after a months-long march through poverty-stricken countries to reach the Calexico border, it appears the Guatemalan, Salvadoran, and Honduran wannabe refugees are receiving an unhealthy dose of reality.

Their promised America — mostly advertised as a life replete with bountiful resources, including unending welfare, free child care, and high-paying jobs for the uneducated — refuses to process the entire lot. And as a government scale-back and standoff over border security tediously plods along, legal immigration into the United States is held in perpetual limbo.

What could possibly go wrong?

As Host Cities Go

Tijuana is fed up with playing host-city to some 6,200 migrants bringing illness, creating fear for businesses and residents, and financially burdening the busy border town. In an interview with Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum, pent-up frustrations were obvious, as he said the caravan is “hitting us hard. It’s costing us 550,000 pesos a day.” That figure approximates $28,000, but is widely disputed by other officials as nearing an unmanageable $40,000 per day.

Tijuana City Delegate Genaro Lopez Moreno added details about the city’s migrant caravan-induced crisis on Fox News’ program Tucker Carlson Tonight:

“Things got out of hand because they kept growing and growing…

But we’re carrying the financial load of keeping these people with medicine, food, shelter, blankets, and whatever. There’s a lot of trash because the 360 grew to 6,200, and that’s when it got out of hand …

There’s like 1,500 people here, there’s 2,200 people there, and there’s 2,000 people that are not accounted for.”
