LIVE FROM THE BORDER CRISIS!
With the media now becoming almost silent on the crisis on the border I traveled to Tijuana to see for myself who these refugees were and what their intended goals are. The media had been showing us footage for weeks of migrants traveling up through South America into Mexico to ultimately reach the U.S. border and seek asylum.
When migrants did reach the border many decided to rush it instead, resulting in dramatic footage of border agents using tear gas on the migrants. However, after NBC reporter on the ground, Gadi Schwartz began confirming that the vast majority of asylum seekers were in fact grown men coverage seemed to stop altogether. Now exploring a makeshift shelter where thousands of migrants have assembled for myself I can confirm this to be the case. Many of these men are simply looking for better-paying jobs and more opportunity, but alarmingly most don’t have any idea what asylum is, and certainly would not qualify. This is a very sad and desperate situation that does not have an easy solution so please share my video report with others so they can get a better understanding of the reality of the migrant situation.
While traveling to Mexico I also took advantage of some medical tourism as prices for both dental and medical care have skyrocketed. So I decided to get some dental work done at a fraction of the cost in a much nicer facility than had I gotten it done in the states.
