A “conservative” media blog has “reported” that hordes of African migrants from the Congo are crossing into the US over the Mexican border carrying ‘rolls of $100’ bills:
The “poor huddled masses” coming across the southern border may not be so poor after all.
Swiss journalist Urs Gehriger recently visited African migrants who breached the border and hung out on the streets of San Antonio, Texas, waiting to go elsewhere in the country, and he met hostility from people who didn’t want to share details about their experiences, conflicted each other, and had rolls of $100 bills.
In a recording played on Fox News, Gehriger asks a migrant from Congo how she got to America.
She refused to say.
“We are here now in the United States. Why do you ask about Ecuador?” a woman said, referring to the reported country they passed through.
As Gehriger continued to ask simple questions, he said they backtracked and “were not answering at all.”
“They wouldn’t tell me anything about how they got here, and then they started to get aggressive and they were contradicting each other,” he told Laura Ingraham.
“One said they ran through the forest, and another said no, there was no forest, and they were actually arguing among themselves,” Gehriger said.
He said they started to get “aggressive” after questions about money and help.
Gehriger believes the illegals were coached on giving answers to authorities.
“I had the impression that somebody told them not to speak about it,” and acting like “now we’re here, you have to help us, give us money.”
“What I found from an aid worker there, they actually do have money. Quite a few of them, because he spotted them under a tree, right in front of the shelter, counting a roll of money with hundred dollar bills,” Gehriger told Ingraham.
Hundreds of migrants Congo and Angola were transported to San Antonio the week before, and city officials say they received no warning from the feds that they were coming.
KENS published a story showing dozens of people milling around downtown, saying they arrived at the southern U.S. border by way of Ecuador.
City officials say CBP told them another 200-300 would be arriving later.
One migrant told reporter Jaleesa Irizarry via Google translate that he came to America “for security reasons” and once he made it, “with the help of the USA, I can get it back,” referring to his family that stayed behind.
A video from CBP shot last week shows group of illegals from Angola, Cameroon and Congo waded across the Rio Grande River and into the United States.
Male and female adults can be seen walking through the water and into Texas, several with children on their shoulders.
According to CBP, it was the first large group from Africa to try to breach the U.S. border via Mexico.
“Large groups present a unique challenge for the men and women of the Del Rio Sector,” Chief Raul Ortiz said in a news release. “This large group from Africa further demonstrates the complexity and severity of the border security and humanitarian crisis at our Southwest border.”
“This is the first large group apprehended in the Del Rio Sector and the first large group of people from Africa – including nationals from Angola, Cameroon and Congo – apprehended on the Southwest border this year,” according to CBP.
Now I looked into this claim of ‘rolls of $100 bills’ on these migrants.
There is nothing to substantiate it. This is, as far as I can determine, a complete lie.
People talk about the “Lugenpresse” and “the left,” and this is true. But “the right” is also not exempt from lying for their own gain.
If these “migrants” do have ANY money at all, aside from the fact that no one has yet to verify anything, it was likely given to them. As I have said before, people from Africa are very poor, and the Congo is one of the poorest places, where the average income is below $1 a day for most.
Likewise, has anybody asked how people came FROM THE JUNGLES OF CENTRAL AFRICA to San Antonio over the US-Mexican border?
One does not simply walk, swim, or take a taxi cab to Mexico from the heart of darkest Africa.
This suggests that the people were trafficked in, but by whom? Given past history, it is likely that is was the US government working through one or a series of third-party contractors in the same way that, as Shoebat.com has tirelessly pointed out for three years now, the “migrant crisis” to Europe by trafficking people from Africa an the Middle East over the Mediterranean with no attempts to hide their actions.
These “migrants” are being brought in for political reasons. They are cannon fodder that will be used to stoke nationalist sentiments in order to translate them to militarism by creating crises. The people behind these conflicts are the same ones as always, and as it is true to their plans of actions, they need to engender hatred and anxiety in order to stress the society so it falls into war by which they can profit.
There will be more of this in the years to come. In the meantime, the best thing that one can do with such provocationist articles based on what seems to be the fantasy of the author than reality is to ignore them, for the troll without an audience is just a madman screaming into the abyss of his own imagination.
