    Migrants block Gateway International Bridge TX.

    Migrants block Gateway International Bridge



    By Aurora Orozco, El Nuevo Heraldo

    This is a screen capture of video taken by El Nuevo Heraldo reporter Aurora Orozco. Mexican federal police are seen blocking Avenida Alvaro Obregon in Matamoros preventing traffic from crossing El Puento Nuevo/Gateway International Bridge.

    The Gateway International Bridge between Brownsville and Matamoros remains closed as migrants blocked the Mexican side of the bridge.

    According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, about 300 migrants without entry documents had gathered at the midpoint of the bridge about 1:30 a.m. this morning.

    Authorities say those MPP or Migrant Protection Protocol participants with immigration court hearings this morning are being rescheduled for a later date.


    “This people have been living in a situation where there is no running water, most of the times there have been no bathrooms, they’ve gone through MPP coming and that brought a lot of changes, too. For a period of time, the Mexican National Guard had a presence there and they did not allow anyone to go up the stairs (that lead to the river).

    For many people, the river was the place where they were bathing, washing clothes. … Also just the daily heat, they’re out there with little to no shade," said Andrea Morris Rudnik, cofounder of Team Brownsville.


    In videos posted on social media, Matamoros mayor Mario Lopez said he tried to reach an agreement with the migrants at the bridge and said he understands how they are feeling and the conditions they have been living in for months.


    “I understand how you feel, you’ve been here for months and we are doing everything we can but you have to understand that we are limited, as Mexican officials, because the ones who authorize political asylum are the American authorities,” Lopez said to the migrants. “We are just part of the chain … I have offered several times to take you to the Alberca Chavez (public pool) and to the Mundo Nuevo (Matamoros Event Center), the places are there to accommodate you better.”


    Lopez added he will add more showers and bathrooms to accommodate them better at the bridge.


    Under a policy know as metering, U.S. officials at many border bridges accept only a few asylum-seekers per day. The Associated Press found about 19,000 names on waiting lists in four border cities visited in late July.


    Frustration with U.S. policies aimed at limiting asylum requests has sparked mass attempts to cross border entries before. However, Thursday's camp-out on the Mexican side of the Matamoros bridge appeared to be more of a protest than an attempt to cross.


    Nevertheless, U.S. officials closed gates on the U.S. side, apparently as a precautionary measure.


    Cameron County, which operates the Gateway bridge, said it is "primarily used for local traffic, maquiladora employees, tourists and pedestrian traffic."


    It said the bridge handles about 80% of the Brownsville-Matamoros pedestrian traffic.


    The blockage caused long lines to form at the other international bridges leading out of Matamoros.

    Put them on a bus back home, they have showers and running water there!

    Keep them all out!

    This festering vortex of human wretchedness is going to boil over and we will have thousands backed up ready to bum rush our border!

    Send them home ... all of them!

    Mexico does not want them, does not want to pay for their housing, meals, showers, clothes, or crimes! USA is NO different! We do not want them comin here either.

    LOAD UP BUSES AND SEND THEM BACK OVER THE SOUTHERN BORDER OF MEXICO!


    OUR HOMELESS IN THE UNITED STATES ARE "LIVING IN A SITUATION" WITH NO SHOWERS, NO TOILETS, NO BEDS, NO FOOD!!! NOW THEY ARE FREEZING IN THE STREETS WITH COLD WEATHER COMING!

    WE ARE NOT THE DUMPING GROUND FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD AND WE HAVE OUR OWN CRIME, DRUGS, HOMELESS, GANGS, VIOLENCE TO TAKE CARE OF!

    SHUT THAT WHOLE DAMN BORDER DOWN UNTIL MEXICO SENDS THEM BACK!

    Don't load them up on a bus and send em back home. Get em on a plane and fly them to Israel with no return. Your replacements will be squeezing babies out of their uterus before they even land the plane there.

    Trump can build Trump Towers on the Gaza strip and your replacements can work in the kitchen cook and clean and do all the grounds keeping.

    Let them shi* all over Israel and let's clean up America.
