So Why Didn’t the ‘Asylum Seekers’ Apply at the Many US Consulates in Mexico?

To listen to the Establishment Media, the thousands of Central Americans now camped outside of Tijuana aren’t looking at bum-rushing the U.S. border because of the promise of jobs in the land of milk and honey, but are actually seeking political asylum due to political oppression back home.

NBC says so.

CNN says so.

Britain’s reliably hard-leftist rag The Independent says so.


However, there happens to be a fly in the ointment of the liberal media’s narrative. Actually, 10 separate flys in 10 different ointments.

In fact, the caravan’s path to Tijuana had them in close proximity to at least six American diplomatic posts where they could apply for political asylum.

According the official State Department website, other than the US Embassy in Ciudad de México, would-be asylum seekers could apply at nine different US consulates located from the Yucatan Peninsula in the southeast of the nation, to Tijuana in the extreme northwest.
