On Tuesday, migrants marched to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana, Mexico and demanded to be let into the United States. They also issued a letter with a list of demands. Among the demands were that either they be let in or that the U.S. give them $50,000 each to go home. They gave the U.S. 72 hours to respond to their demands.
Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa, the man who organized the march said, “It may seem like a lot of money to you. But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”
Now there’s more information coming out on Ulloa.
Ulloa is a suspect in a 1987 bombing that wounded six American soldiers in Honduras.
From 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 has posted on Facebook about his role in organizing the migrants in Mexico, which he is open about, and the accusations against him from 1987, which he denies.
While he denies being involved in the bombing, Ulloa admitted in a Facebook post that he was, in fact, a member of the Popular Revolutionary Forces-Lorenzo Zelaya. The group was involved in a plane hijacking in 1982 which took hostages including eight Americans.
According to the U.S. government, the group is one of the “leftist guerrilla groups [in Honduras] that have resorted to terrorist tactics in the past.”
Ulloa also railed against the presence of American military members in Honduras and called on “gringo trash” to leave the country.
Here’s Ulloa demanding the $50,000 for each person and saying it’s up to the committee what happens in 72 hours if the U.S. doesn’t comply with their demands.
“Look, we don’t know. It all depends on what the assembly decides, we don’t make decisions,” he says.
It’s fair to say that the U.S. isn’t going to comply with Ulloa and the migrants’ demands.
But they definitely have some gall.
According to Fox News, of the 6000 migrants who have arrived in Tijuana, 700 have gone home, 300 have been deported and 2500 have applied for humanitarian visas in Mexico.Note: The author of this article has included commentary that expresses an opinion and analysis of the facts.
