Two organized groups from the Central American caravan marched on the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana with no less than a demand for reparations for “everything the United States has stolen from Honduras” to the tune of $50,000. They say let them in or give them the cash to take home with them. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, they also demanded a halt in deportations and faster processing. “It may seem like a lot of money to you,” organizer Alfonsa Guerreo Ulloa told the paper, “but it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras. “Another said, “We thought they would let us in, but Trump sent the military instead of social workers. “They “generously” gave the consulate 72 hours to think about it and respond.

Two groups of Central American migrants marched to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana on Tuesday with a list of demands, with one group delivering an ultimatum to the Trump administration: either let them in the U.S. or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said.
Among other demands were that deportations be halted and that asylum seekers be processed faster and in greater numbers, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
The first group of caravan members, which included about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11 a.m. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, said the $50,000 figure was chosen as a group.
“It may seem like a lot of money to you,” Ulloa told the paper. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”
