Mexican authorities arrested two Hondurans who allegedly shot at federal police officers escorting the migrant caravan across the southern state of Chiapas. The attack follows shortly after government warnings about Molotov cocktail attacks around a second caravan near the border with Guatemala.
The attack took place near Ignacio Zaragoza, Chiapas, when members of Mexico’s Federal Police were escorting the migrant caravan as part of “Operativo Caminante” or “Operation Walker” across the southern border state. According to Mexico’s Interior Secretariat, two men identified only as 22-year-old “Jerson” and 17-year-old “Carlos” spotted the group of police officers guarding the caravan and began firing at them.
The attackers’ pistol jammed, allowing police officers to arrest them without any injuries. Federal authorities seized a .380 caliber Glock with nine rounds still in the magazine.
The attack came soon after Mexican authorities issued a warning about migrants in Guatemala who were preparing Molotov cocktails and acquiring firearms to use against police officers in their attempts to break through the border to Mexico. Over the weekend, several clashes occurred where migrants threw rocks and used various makeshift weapons against border security forces.

Dr. Commonsense… You are terrific ! I just was directed to your webpage and videos on YouTube and can’t be more thrilled to have another human being look at all that Bull Shit in DC and call it criminally insane ! To the comment…
I am a 59-year old white, middle class, anglo saxon who used to be a Kennedy Democrat until Ronald Regan came along and opened my eyes… Why doesn’t the entire black community have guns, knifes, axes, pitch forks, and scissors walk around their neighborhoods and round up all the illegal aliens and match them to the nearest ICE / Department of Homeland Security ? You might ask why…. Okay, here’s my take on the last 40-yrs of the black community economical plight… To me it seems like Illegal aliens have taken all of the blue collar jobs away from the African-American community. When I was growing up, I always seen african americans having and performing what is referred to as blue-collar jobs. Where did they go? Did they become so rich they don’t have to work anymore? Why don’t you do a monologue telling the African-American community that they should be mad at the democrats for allowing the illegal aliens in so they can take away their honorable hard working jobs…. Republicans have been fighting to keep them out !! If the black community won’t stand up for themselves and jobs, they surely should know the democrats aren’t going to change their tune and help shut the boarder down. Hell, I’m in construction and I use to work with skilled, honest, caring African-Americans on job sites… Now all I see are Illegal Aliens frying beans and tortillas up and send money back to central america on Fridays.
