One group of migrants has given the United States an interesting ultimatum in order to speed up the immigration process.
According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the group delivered a list of demands to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana. In the letter, they gave an ultimatum — either let them into the country or pay $50,000 for each person to return to their home country.
“It may seem like a lot of money to you,” group organizer Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa said. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”
The group did not give specific examples of what the country has stolen from Honduras. They gave the consulate 72 hours to respond, but when asked what will happen if they deny their demands, the group had to come up with a different plan.
“I don’t know, we will decide as a group,” Ulloa said.
Another migrant pointed out the number of people returning home due to difficulties immigrating to the United States.
“A lot of people are leaving because there is no solution here,” said Douglas Matute. “We thought they would let us in. But Trump sent the military instead of social workers.”
Although their demands may not be possible, the migrants were still grateful their side was heard at the consulate.
“They received us at least,” Ulloa said. “It was nice to be treated with respect.”
