  • Officials in San Antonio are facing a new surge of migrants coming from Central Africa. Many arrive at the southern border with stories of government-sanctioned violence in their home towns. Manny Fernandez, the Houston bureau chief for The New York Times, joined CBSN to discuss the impact the surge is having on cities already dealing with migrants from Central America.Subscribe to the CBS News Channel HERE: CBSN live HERE: CBS News on Instagram HERE: CBS News on Facebook HERE: CBS News on Twitter HERE: the latest news and best in original reporting from CBS News delivered to your inbox.

    What about our own at risk populations? Homeless, mentally ill and those who fall below the poverty level? I don't mind helping, but what's happening here?

    “Our borders and these seem to be valid refugees”. Why did CBS commentator express his personal opinion and bias? Why can’t CBS just give the facts?

    Refugees status is only granted to you by the next country that isn't at war in your region. So Africans would need to go to South Africa, Egypt or Zimbabwe.

    Please REMEMBER, that all of these people ARE criminals! The USA did not sign the migrant/refugee pacts, and NONE of these people have any right to CHOOSE the USA as their "choice country" for "asylum"! The USA is NOT a participating country!
