    They're looking for "refuge"

    Mexico Offers to Provide Jobs, Education to Caravan Migrants

    Mexico’s government unveiled a plan to provide employment, health care, and education to thousands of Central American migrants who are part of the caravan that is traveling from Honduras towards the U.S border.

    This week, Mexico’s government unveiled their plan called “Estas En Tu Casa” or “You Are in Your Home.” The program provides the migrants with temporary employment, access to government-funded health care, and education for their children. The migrants who take part in the program will be employed in the cleaning and maintenance of public buildings and roads. As Breitbart News has reported, thousands of migrants from Honduras are making their way into Mexico in an effort to reach the U.S. Border. The caravan has caused international tension as the U.S. government threatened to remove international aid to Central America if the caravan is not stopped.

    In order to take part in the program, the migrants and their families must be in the country legally and reach out to immigration authorities who will sign them up. The program will only be available in the southern Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca. Those who are part of the caravan and entered the country illegally will be given time to begin the immigration process and must follow Mexico’s immigration law. Those in the program will also be given Mexico’s version of a social security number, commonly known as CURP (Clave Unica de Registro Publico) so they are able to open bank accounts and carry out other bureaucratic processes.

    According to Mexico’s Secretariat of the Interior, the program is designed to help up to 6,000 migrants and will be supported through emergency funds destined for social emergencies. The program will be operated by Mexico’s Communications and Transportation Secretariat.

    Except refuge is not what they're after.

    So much for 'refuge.' Caravan army turns up its nose at Mexico's generous offer of asylum

    If there's anything that points to the political nature of the thousands-strong migrant caravan heading north to the U.S., it's the migrants' rejection of Mexico's generous offer of political asylum, along with jobs, medical care, and big benefit packages.  According to this Associated Press report, they'd rather confront Trump.

    I suspect the word "jobs" was the killer. Why do that when the Democrats promise them everything here free?

    Migrants traveling in a caravan through southern Mexico have rejected a proposal by President Enrique Pena Nieto that they apply for refugee status in the country and obtain benefits.

    Coordinators of the caravan read out the president's plan called "You are at home."  Migrants shouted "Gracias!" but "No, we're heading north!"

    Activist Irineo Mujica of the Pueblo sin Fronteras group is supporting the migrants in the caravan.  He told the group that 80 percent of those who apply for protective status would be rejected and deported.

    NBC reports:

    Sitting at the edge of the edge of the town square, 58-year-old Oscar Sosa of San Pedro Sula, Honduras concurred.

    "Our goal is not to remain in Mexico," Sosa said.  "Our goal is to make it to the (U.S).  We want passage, that's all."

    There are significantly mixed reports about that, suggesting that the Mexican government isn't on all one page as to what its people intend to do.

    William LaJeunesse of Fox News reports that Mexican cops were commandeering trucks and buses to load the migrants up for travel north, while NBC News reports that Mexicans were picking off the smaller groups that have spun off from the original caravan mass and declaring them illegal.  The smaller groups, by the way, have reportedly spun off because of the presence of so many criminals and gang members in the ranks of the larger group, with LaJeunesse reporting that the invading army has fallen from 7,000 to 4,000.  The pickoffs, however, seem to be followed by calls from the far-left caravan-organizers to stay with the larger group, which just happens to support their original political aim of using of the caravan of large numbers to confront Trump and render the U.S. border meaningless.

    Either way, the Mexican government is not helping in the transport regard, but that looks more like weakness, and not wanting this to be a problem with the U.S. or themselves, more than anything else.
