Mexico’s U.S. Ambassador — Geronimo Gutierrez — is blasting Democrats for saying everyone in the migrant caravan are all peaceful refugees seeking asylum.
On Tuesday, Gutierrez explained there have been multiple instances where migrants have been “very violent,” while rebelling against border authorities.
This comes after Mexican officials warned some migrants in Guatemala are building makeshift bombs to use against police officers guarding the border between Mexico and Guatemala.
