Hearing Mexicans in Tijuana are protesting the caravans pouring into their area.
Looks like it's getting pretty violent too. I read a post by another ATS member awhile back, sorry don't remember members name or which thread to give her credit. She claimed to be a Mexican American who had family in Mexico. She made two interesting points.
1. She was having a hard time getting a work visa to work at family owned business in Mexico.
2. Her family told her that the migrants trashed the town and business's in the town her family lived in, lot's of stealing and vandalism.
We keep hearing how hospitable the Mexican people are being to the migrants, lol, probably more like keeping the peace the best they can until they can get them to move ON ! Looks like the people in TJ are stuck with them for now and they don't like it one bit ! Are they racists or people trying to protect their community ?
There may be many people in the caravan who could become positive and productive citizens and anyone with a heart feels for their plight, but they need to come in legally, period ! If individuals or business's were willing to sponsor families and individual's, with STRICT penalties if those they sponsor break the law or don't show up at their immigration hearings, perhaps giving them temporary work visa's might be one solution ? IDK, it's a big problem.
He has been accused of "significant acts of misconduct", including under-reporting his pay package and personal use of company assets.
Mr Ghosn was paid 735m yen (£5.1m) by Nissan in the most recent financial year, 227m yen (£1.6m) by Mitsubishi and €7.4m (£6.6m) by Renault - a total of about £13.3m.
It said: "In response to the arrest of Ghosn, and since the alleged misconduct is related to a corporate governance and compliance issue, it is to be proposed to the board of directors to promptly remove Ghosn."
In addition, he is chairman and chief executive of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Motors strategic alliance. Shares in Renault fell sharply after the news, dropping almost 10%.
