New Poll Finds Seven in Ten Mexicans Have Negative View of the Thousands of Migrants Squatting in Tijuana and Border Communities

A new poll released Sunday by one of Mexico’s largest newspapers found that seven in 10 Mexicans have a negative view about the arrival of the migrant families.

A local mother in Tijuana told reporters recently local authorities shut down the school for the children’s safety.

The Daily Caller reported:

A new poll by El Universal, a Mexican newspaper, found that a majority of Mexicans have a negative view of the migrant caravan marching through their country.

Thousands of members of the caravan are currently camping out in Tijuana, Mexico as they attempt to cross the southern U.S. border or claim asylum. Mexicans have expressed displeasure that the migrants are settling in their home cities and towns.

The El Universal poll, as reported by NBC News, found that seven in 10 Mexicans have a negative view of the arrival of migrant families. Further, 52 percent support blocking migrants from entering the country without documentation and 55 percent think President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador should be tougher on future caravans.
