A ruckus between African migrants and Mexican National Guard officials broke out on Tuesday after a week after officials sealed off the main entrance of a migrant camp in the southern city of Tapachula, near Guatemala.

Surveillance footage filmed by rights group Pueblo Sin Fronteras showed heavy clashes between African migrants and National Guard officials in riot gear.

The migrants said they were demanding to leave the country, and head to the United States. More

Nationals of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia, Angola, Senegal, Cameroon, and several other African countries, stuck in southern Mexico after the government clamped down on northward migration in response to US pressure, are protesting for the right to continue their journey.

Democrats demand we let these thugs in our country.

Fighting for their ‘right’ to get on the gravy train.

This is an invasion! Send them all back to wherever they came from.

They have no right to demand anything.
