James Woods Stuns Liberals: Why Can’t Caravan Migrants Seek Asylum in Mexico?
Actor stuns Democrats, Hollywood, and the media with question
As the migrant caravan debate rages on, actor James Woods has stunned Democrats, Hollywood, and the media with one real Question:
Why can’t caravanners seek asylum in Mexico?
It's a question that needs to be pondered before being answered.
Granted, the current caravan of migrants originated from is a country that is not particularly safe, but it is far stretch from being 'war-torn.'
Those in legitimate danger could seek refuge in any number of destinations much closer than the United States.
Last Month, Neon Nettle reported the migrant caravan members refused offers of housing jobs in Mexico, stating 'we want America.'
Is this seeking refuge or going for gold?
Conservative actor James Woods was also wondering the same thing.
“I’m genuinely curious about this #asylum issue. If people from Honduras and Guatemala are seeking #refuge from their native lands, and Mexico is offering #sanctuary, why do they need to violate our laws and border?” Woods tweeted Monday.
“They have already been granted asylum in Mexico, correct?”
Yes, some of them have.

“Mexico has offered temporary work permits to migrants who register for asylum, as a big caravan of Central American migrants makes its way through the country toward the US,” the BBC reported.
“The plan also envisages temporary ID cards, medical care, and schooling.
“But to qualify, migrants must remain in Mexico’s southern Chiapas and Oaxaca states.”
This may be not what the migrants want, but it e safe from the conditions they are attempting to escape.
Yes, Mexico is not safe in parts, but there are safe spots for asylum seekers in the country, even in Chiapas and Oaxaca.
But as we have reported before, they want the United States.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said she would not put up with this "lawlessness" as American authorities were forced to defend the border breach with rubber bullets and tear gas at the crossing between Tijuana and San Diego.
Mexican officials attempted to use crowd control on Sunday afternoon but were overwhelmed when the vast mobs of migrants rushed at authorities, breaching their defenses.
