When an open borders liberal activist heard that a group of illegal migrants was hoping to make their way across the Southern U.S. border, he immediately headed down to help them. However, as soon as he arrived at his destination, he was met with a gruesome payback that perfectly sums up the failed policies of the left.
Hugo Castro isn’t your typical armchair activist when it comes to social justice warring. In fact, when his Border Angels business partner informed him of a migrant caravan stuck indefinitely in Mexico, Castro volunteered to meet them, intending to use their alleged testimonies as propaganda to fuel the move toward open borders. Unfortunately for him, he would be the one on camera making a desperate plea for help from the U.S.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Castro was found barely alive with horrific injuries, including brain swelling from “multiple blows” to the head, a fractured foot, and bruises all over his body. Ironically, it appears as though Castro had been beaten almost to death by the same type of people who he’s helping illegally slip into the U.S. every day.
Although medical professionals refuse to divulge details, the office of Mexico’s attorney general confirmed that his wounds are consistent with kidnapping, according to the Times of San Diego.
Castro had recently been recorded bashing President Donald Trump and America’s laws, saying, “I don’t believe in the leader. I don’t believe in the U.S. President, but I do believe in the people. So, we, the people, ‘el pueblo,’ are the ones who are bringing the change.”
Of course, “the people” showed Castro just how grateful they are for his assistance. Castro, a man who has flouted U.S. laws to bring in an undisclosed number of illegal aliens who have committed heinous crimes against innocent American citizens, has finally become one of the victims of his own liberal values.
The irony thickened when footage surfaced of Castro detailing how he was teaching a group of 50 migrants how to avoid being mugged, abducted, and exploited. Of course, he had no idea that his own advice would come back to haunt him a month later. Now, Castro’s activist partners are working with the U.S. Embassy in Mexico to get him back over the border.
Incredibly, it was liberals like Castro who were outraged when Trump reiterated in 2015 that illegal migrants from Mexico are perpetrating crimes in the U.S.
“What can be simpler or more accurately stated? The Mexican Government is forcing their most unwanted people into the United States. They are, in many cases, criminals, drug dealers, rapists, etc.”
Leftists decried this statement merely because they felt insulted. Still, they couldn’t debunk it. In fact, from the first day of Trump’s presidency to March 13 of this year, U.S. immigration officials have arrested 21,362 illegal migrants with just 5,441 labeled “non-criminals” despite their crime of illegally crossing the border. The rest of the illegals were wanted for crimes including sexual assault, domestic abuse, drug-related charges, and murder.
The left desperately wants to portray illegal immigrants as victims and the U.S. as the responsible custodian. They want so deeply for their policies to succeed that they’re willing to put innocent civilians in harm’s way just to prove this. Unfortunately, they fail in the long run and citizens are the ones to pay. Luckily, this time the victim was of his own volition and has no one to blame but himself.
