    Juárez police in riot gear evict 'Little Venezuela' migrant camp along Rio Grande

    Juárez police in riot gear evict 'Little Venezuela' migrant camp along Rio Grande

    Tents were burned, punches were thrown and scuffles erupted Sunday morning as Mexican authorities evicted hundreds of migrants from the "Little Venezuela" encampment on the southern banks of the Rio Grande.

    The encampment formed in October along the Mexican side of the border near downtown Juárez after the U.S. government began expulsions of Venezuelan nationals. Migrants were staying in donated camping tents along the border hoping to be allowed to enter and gain asylum in the United States.





    Juárez police in riot gear forcefully evicted mostly Venezuelan migrants on Sunday from the banks of the Rio Grande, clearing out the “Little Venezuela” camp and throwing tents, blankets and clothes into garbage trucks and ordering migrants to go to shelters. The U.S. border fence in El Paso is in the background.

    Scuffles between migrants and police with riot shields erupted and tents were set on fire in protest as Mexican federal, state and city police and workers moved in to remove the camp late Sunday morning, according to video taken by the Norte Digital news website.

    The Juárez city government said that 500 migrants would be bussed to shelters. The camp had become a health and safety hazard with the arrival of winter chill in the Borderland and concerns that campfires used to keep warm could cause a potentially deadly fire in the camp, officials said.

    "There are places to wait and take shelter and the intention of the Municipal Government and the other authorities is to avoid a tragedy and protect them, so we will continue to urge them to stay safe," Hector Rafael Ortiz Opinel, a Juárez city management official, said in a news release.

    City crews will remove the remaining tents and clean up the site of the riverside camp that is within sight of the El Paso border fence, authorities said.

    Load these criminal trespassers in Mexico and the USA on buses and bus them back over the borders to their country.

    No one wants this invasion, the filth, the diseases, or pay the costs of this destruction of our countries.
