TULTITLAN, Mexico The travelers, with bloodshot eyes and sleep-wrinkled clothes, press around a man with a map of Mexico taped to the wall. He speaks, and his finger traces various routes north to the border. All roads lead to trouble.
Up here, kidnappers and drug killers. Over there, Mexican army checkpoints. Farther along, a giant desert, with poisonous snakes and deadly heat.
They are migrants, almost all from Central America, and they have endured much to reach this place, a church-run shelter about an hour's drive north of Mexico City. And they will endure more. The man with the map is a volunteer whose job is to make sure they know how much more.
The San Juan Diego Migrant House is hundreds of miles from any frontier, but in many ways it crystallizes the wider border-crossing drama: the hope and desperation of those caught up in the inexorable human flow, the irritation of residents on the receiving end of so much humanity.
This day, the church shelter is jammed with more than 100 migrants, who sprawl across floors and sagging bunks or squat on a sun-scorched concrete patio outside.

A "war room" if you will. The place where the invasion of America is planned, coordinated and conducted out of.

They can’t wait to get their free health care , education, section 8, EBT, WIC, First Five, SSI, ITIN, EIC, plus much, much more , all from the idiots in the USA. Can we load some more hippos onto the Titanic?
The more that such scenes play out and word starts to filter back home, the more "exorable" that human flow will become...
Didn’t they just report that immigration is at a standstill because as many Mexicans have been going home as arriving?
Well... it's like the Global Warming/Global Cooling thing. Whatever works at the time. Like Obama, you have to be 'flexible'.
P.S. The ‘migrants’ aren’t from Mexico, they are from Central America.
Americans have the will. But, as they say in economics, there is a "structural" problem--the government. And the government's problem is what economists call "the agency problem." A majority of those in government (our agents) are more concerned about the perks of the position and staying in office than the welfare of the country as a whole.
