    WAKE UP NOW!!!!! YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED!!!!!

    PLEASE GO TO WWW.MAPQUEST.COM

    TYPE IN MEXICO

    HIT THE DOWN ARROW UNTIL YOU GET TO THE MEXICO/GUATEMALAN BORDER AREA

    HIT THE + SIGN TO ZOOM IN

    QUESTION: HOW MANY ROADS DO YOU SEE BETWEEN CHIAPAS STATE, MEXICO and GUATEMALA????? ONLY A FEW!!!!!!!!!!

    QUESTION: HOW MANY ROADS DO YOU SEE HEADING NORTH from CHIAPAS STATE????? THE SAME FEW ROADS!!!!!!!!!!

    The Mexicans can road block these couple of highways EASILY and stop almost all the Illegals heading north if this invasion was "JUST HAPPENING" and it was not under their control. THEY AREN'T DOING SO because they're in on this US INVASION PLAN. So are the Central American governments and OUR GOVERNMENT UNDER TRUMP. MAYBE TRUMP HAS ZERO CONTROL over our Federal Government????? But Washington DC is in on this and NIKKI HALEY ADMITTED THIS in that interview with Ben Shapiro that was posted on this site.

    CASE CLOSED!!!!! AND PLEASE GO TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

    PS: the only other way out of Chiapas State is on top of that freight train they call the BEAST. Women and mobs of children can't hang onto the tops of those rail cars. Passenger trains and cars fit on those rails just fine, so maybe they're also coming up by rail and the Mexican government has 100% control over that too.

    They are using HUNDREDS of buses, semi-trucks, cattle cars, the Beast, cars to send them here and DUMP them over our border!

    I am sick of Trump's lies, tweets, threats. He should have stopped this over 2 years ago!

    We want them stopped in their tracks and sent the hell back home...NOT dumped in our neighborhoods!

    Put the Travel Ban on Mexico and Central America...they cannot come here!

    Stop issuing Visa's.

    Shut the whole border down.

    No heads on beds...we want butts on buses back home!

    We cannot take in one billion people on the planet.

    I AM SICK OF CORRUPT MEXICO! SHUT THE DAMN BORDER DOWN!

    SEND OUR BUSES TO THEM AND LOAD THEM UP.

    SEND OUR BARGES AND SHIP THEM BACK!
    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL

    Is it true that Mexico has very few railroads and trains?

    David Currey, I've worked in train service and studied railroads most of my life.

    I’m not an expert on Mexico’s railroads, but I’ll give the question a try.

    Mexico does not have very many railroad companies, and does not have a very dense railroad system, but it is comparable in density to the western United States, excepting the US West Coast.


    Mexico abolished almost all of its intercity passenger trains in 1997, so the railroads haul mostly freight. Passenger-wise, the country has several tourist railroads, and there are some commuter lines based out of Mexico City. Mexico’s president has proposed inter-city passenger trains, and a high speed line is under construction between Mexico City and Querétaro. It remains to be seen what other passenger services might be built or restored, as Mexico had a fairly substantial passenger rail system before 1997, with a slightly higher density of trains than Amtrak in the United States.

    Mexico’s freight railroads are comparable to United States railroads in equipment and operations. Kansas City Southern, a US railroad, owns rail lines in Mexico, and NAFTA has increased traffic between the two countries. All things considered, I think Mexico has a pretty good freight rail system.

    Getting Around By Bus

    Mexico has a good road network and comfortable, frequent, reasonably priced bus services connect all cities. Most cities and towns have one main bus terminal from which all long-distance buses operate. It may be called the Terminal de Autobuses, Central de Autobuses, Central Camionera or La Central (not to be confused with el centro, the city center!).
    Bus stations in major cities tend to be generally clean, safe and highly functional.

    Practical Tips


    • Buses do occasionally get held up and robbed. Traveling by day and on deluxe or 1st-class buses, which use toll highways where possible, minimizes this risk.
    • Baggage is safe if stowed in the baggage hold – get a receipt for it when you hand it over. Keep your most valuable possessions in the cabin with you.
    • Air-conditioned buses can get cold, so wear long pants or a skirt and take a sweater or jacket and maybe a blanket on board. Eye-masks and earplugs can be handy if you don’t want to watch videos the entire trip!


    Classes

    Mexico's buses (called camiones, unlike in other Spanish-speaking countries) have three classes.

    Deluxe & Executive

    De lujo services, primera plus and the even more comfortable ejecutivo(executive) buses run mainly on the busier intercity routes. They are swift and comfortable, with reclining seats, plenty of legroom, air-conditioning, movies on (individual) video screens, few or no stops, toilets on board (sometimes separate ones for men and women) and often drinks, snacks and even wi-fi. They use toll roads wherever available.

    First Class

    Primera (1a) clase buses have a comfortable numbered seat for each passenger. All sizable towns are served by 1st-class buses. Standards of comfort are adequate at the very least. The buses have air-conditioning and a toilet, and they stop infrequently. They show movies on TV screens. They also use toll roads where possible.

    Second Class

    Segunda (2a) clase or ‘económico’ buses serve small towns and villages and provide cheaper, slower travel on some intercity routes. A few are almost as quick, comfortable and direct as 1st-class buses. Others are old, slow and shabby. Few have toilets. These buses tend to take non-toll roads and will stop anywhere to pick up passengers, so if you board midroute you might make some of the trip standing. In remoter areas, they are often the only buses available.

    Companies

    Mexico has hundreds of bus companies. Many of the major ones belong to the four large groups that dominate bus transportation in different parts of the country. Their websites have schedule information.
    Bus Company Website Destinations Served
    ETN Turistar www.etn.com.mx All major cities along the Pacific coast, central, northern and eastern Mexico and destinations as far south as Oaxaca. Also Tuscon, El Paso and San Diego.
    Grupo ADO www.ado.com.mx Connects Mexico City with numerous cities in the Yucatán, Campeche, Quintana Roo, Tabasco, Chiapas, Oaxaca, Puebla, Guerrero and Veracruz.
    Grupo Estrella Blanca www.estrellablanca.com.mx Mexico City and the center, north and west of Mexico. Major cities such as Guadalajara, Tijuana, Puebla, Monterrey, Puerto Vallarta, Ciudad Juárez.
    Primera Plus www.primeraplus.com.mx Destinations around the center of the country include Mexico City, Guadalajara, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, San Luis Potosí and San Miguel de Allende.

    Reservations

    For 1st-class, deluxe and executive buses, buy your ticket in the bus terminal before the trip; it may also be possible to purchase tickets online, depending on the bus company, and have the ticket emailed to you. For trips of up to four or five hours on routes with frequent service, you can usually just go to the bus terminal, buy a ticket and head out without much delay. For longer trips, or routes with infrequent service, or for any trip at busy holiday times, it’s best to buy a ticket a day or more in advance. You can usually select your seat when you buy your ticket. Try to avoid the back of the bus, which is where the toilets are located and also tends to give a bumpier ride.

    Many 2nd-class services have no ticket office; you just pay your fare to the conductor.

    In some cities you can buy bus tickets from downtown agencies to avoid an extra trip to the bus terminal.

    How Many Stops?

    It’s useful to understand the difference between the types of bus service on offer.

    Sin escalas
    Nonstop.

    Directo
    Very few stops.

    Ordinario
    Stops wherever passengers want to get on or off the bus. Deluxe and 1st-class buses are never ordinario.

    Express
    Nonstop on short- to medium-length trips and very few stops on long trips.

    Local
    Bus that starts its journey at the bus station you’re in and usually leaves on time. Local service is preferable to de paso.

    De paso
    Bus that started its journey somewhere else. You may have to wait until it arrives before any tickets are sold, and if it’s full, you have to wait for the next one.

    Vía corta
    Short route.

    Vía cuota
    By toll road.

    Viaje redondo
    Round trip.

    But the point is, there's only a few roads out of Southern Mexico they can drive on. SO SO EASY to road block and control the people flow on. They're not doing it because they're facilitating the invasion, not stopping it.

    Despite perils, more U.S.-bound migrants are turning to ‘La Bestia’ to cross Mexico

    • By Patrick J. McDonnell Los Angeles Times (TNS)
    • Jun 2, 2019 Updated 20 hrs ago












    ARRIAGA, Mexico — They gathered at dawn in this railyard in southern Mexico, contemplating their next move: catching a ride on the roof of La Bestia (the Beast) — the name migrants use for the notorious freight train that winds its way through Mexico toward the United States.
    “Climbing on the top looks very difficult, especially with the kids,” said a dubious Carlos Onan Galo Perez, who had traveled from Honduras with his wife and their three children. “I’m worried.”
    He had heard about the dangers: the criminal mobs that terrorize travelers, the risk of falling and losing an arm or leg, or worse. Mexican police recently reported that “delinquents” tossed several migrants from La Bestia in the state of Veracruz, leaving one dead and two with severed limbs.



    But the train has reemerged in recent weeks as a preferred mode of travel for Central American migrants after the Mexican government, under pressure from the Trump administration, started making it more difficult for them to cross Mexico on their way to the U.S. border.
    Just last year, legions of migrants traveling in caravans passed from Guatemala through the Mexican state of Chiapas largely unimpeded. Thousands more were given humanitarian visas early this year allowing them safe passage northward, keeping in line with campaign promises from Mexico’s new president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, that migrants would be treated with respect and compassion.
    Now Mexican immigration agents and federal police staff checkpoints along the highways, and truckers and other motorists face fines if they give lifts to migrants. In April and May, Mexico detained a total of 43,258 foreigners, more than double the number during the same period last year.
    Meanwhile, deportations have also risen significantly. The increases reflect both intensified enforcement and a surge in arriving migrants.
    The trek north could become even more difficult this summer as President Donald Trump has intensified efforts to strong-arm Mexico into taking additional action. On Thursday, he announced that the United States would impose a 5% tariff on all goods from Mexico as of June 10 and that the tariff would increase to 25% by Oct. 1 “until Mexico substantially stops the illegal flow.”
    Galo and his group viewed La Bestia as less likely to be subject to raids than public buses or other vehicles — which is why they wound up in this railyard, amid idle boxcars and stray dogs, waiting for the train.
    Galo and his wife, Lidis Reconco, knew how difficult it could be to reach the United States, 1,000 miles from here.
    They had both already made the long trek to Mexico’s northern border earlier this year, leaving their children at home with relatives to join separate groups of migrants traveling en masse from Honduras.
    “I heard about the caravans and thought, this was an opportunity for me and my family, a chance to better ourselves,” explained Galo, 35, a slim, energetic figure who was a laborer back in Tegucigalpa, the capital, but struggled to find work.
    Galo made it to the city of Piedras Negras, across the Rio Grande from Eagle Pass, Texas, where he was among 1,800 migrants held in a factory-turned-shelter. His wife reached Tijuana, where she stayed with a brother she had not seen in six years.
    (EDITORS: BEGIN OPTIONAL TRIM)
    Seeing throngs of migrants stranded at the border, Reconco said she experienced a kind of epiphany.
    “I first thought that the voyage would change our lives for the better, but then I felt differently,” recalled Reconco, whose reserved personality contrasts with her husband’s exuberant character. “What would become of our children if we were away for a long time?”
    Her brother offered some counsel: “Go back to Honduras, then bring the kids, and you’ll be able to cross much easier.”
    U.S. laws restricting child detention have helped fuel a surge in asylum-seeking families on the U.S.-Mexico border — to the ire of the Trump administration, whose officials say migrants are using children as “shields” to get released in U.S. territory.
    “Trump accuses us of using children as shields, and maybe some do,” said Galo. “But I’m doing this because it is the best hope for my family.”
    (EDITORS: STORY CAN END HERE)
    Galo and his wife reached a decision: The two would return to Honduras, rest and embark on the long venture anew, this time as a family.
    They left Honduras in early April, soon arriving at Mexico’s border with Guatemala, where they waited a month until the three children — Carlos, Sheri and Shirli, ages 15, 10 and 8 — received visitor cards allowing them to travel in southern Mexico, but not beyond. Both parents already had temporary legal papers for Mexico — on humanitarian grounds — from their earlier attempts.
    In early May, the family set out by bus for this sun-scorched town, a key terminus for La Bestia.
    The comings and goings of the freight trains are a matter of mystery and speculation. There is no public schedule. But one evening, after Galo and his family had spent two nights outside a Catholic shelter here sleeping on cardboard mats and blankets, word filtered in: A train was expected to depart at 6 a.m.
    At dusk, the migrants packed up their belongings, burned their trash and set out for the railyard, about a mile away. But there was an ominous portent: Galo had received a cellphone video clip of a police raid on a La Bestia spur outside the northern Mexican city of Monterrey.
    “Leave us alone!” a woman pleads in the video as Mexican authorities order migrants to descend from the train.
    That evening, the Central Americans, numbering about 100 or so, crashed in the central plaza of Arriaga, across the street from the railyard. The children played on the swing sets and jungle gyms before huddling beneath them to get some sleep.
    Then, as roosters heralded daybreak, the train arrived, its whistles and groans piercing the predawn. The migrants quickly gathered their belongings and crossed the street to the railyard. Galo and his group of about two dozen huddled in prayer, illuminated by ghostly locomotive lights.
    “Stay together,” advised Galo. “There is safety in numbers.”
    An assemblage of young men with sticks served as an ersatz security squad. Exhausted families gathered on scattered railway ties and a graffiti-splashed platform, waiting for the train to come to a halt. Women cradled infants in their arms.
    Soon, many scrambled across the tracks into open boxcars, which were coated inside with cement dust, a remnant of the previous cargo. Women and children entered first. The men placed wooden ties and stones by the doors to keep them ajar. All were elated to be on their way, finally.
    But then railroad security men decked out in in black arrived and chased them away. They sealed the boxcars, warning of the danger of suffocation should the doors slam shut.



    Now, the only option was to ride on top of the train, a death-defying endeavor. La Bestia is renowned for sharp curves and sudden braking, capable of sending rooftop passengers flying onto the rails. Low-lying branches can suddenly sweep riders off. There is no relief from the sun, rain or evening chill.
    Reaching the top was itself a challenge. A gap of about 6 feet separated the top rungs of the ladders built into the boxcar exteriors and the roofs.
    Daylight had broken. The yellow locomotive was running its engine. Some families had already formed human chains to mount the cars.
    Abruptly, Galo and his group decided it was a go: Men clambered first to the top. Migrants standing beside the tracks or poised atop metal couplers between the cars tossed backpacks and plastic bags filled with clothes, water and food to comrades above.
    Galo and other men lay flat on their stomachs atop the boxcars, straining to extend arms to grasp women and children who were passed up, fire-brigade style. Children screamed. People shouted instructions, often contradictory or unintelligible in the cacophony.
    “We’re going to the U.S.A.!” came an unexpected cry, in English.
    That was from Julio Cesar Doblado, 44, a Honduran who said he had been deported from New York. He wore stars-and-stripes shorts and had only half a right arm — he said the rest was cut off when he fell from La Bestia four years ago in Mexico.
    Galo and the others used yellow plastic rope to help secure children and luggage atop the cars. Finally, La Bestia began lurching north, its rooftop stowaways flashing smiles of relief. Ahead lay a voyage teeming with peril, but also the hope of fresh beginnings.
