The Daily Caller's Peter Hasson reports:
Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa organized a march of approximately 100 migrants to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, on Tuesday, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Ulloa delivered a letter to the consulate on behalf of the migrants, asking for either entry into the U.S. or a payment of $50,000 per person.
“It may seem like a lot of money to you,” Ulloa told the Union-Tribune. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”
Ulloa has lived in Mexico since 1987 after fleeing Honduras in the wake of a bombing that wounded six soldiers. Ulloa was suspected of planting a bomb in a Chinese restaurant, but received asylum from Mexico, whose government described the suspected terrorist as a “freedom fighter.”
An appropriations bill passed by Congress in December 1987 included Congress’s findings that “the bomb was directed at American soldiers and did in fact wound American soldiers and an American contractor.” The report noted that Ulloa was a suspect in the bombing.
While Ulloa boasts about his role in the migrant caravan, he denies the 30-year-old accusations against him.
He doesn't dispute railing against the U.S. military presence in Honduras and demanding "gringo trash" leave the country.

A report commissioned by the State Department in 1990 described Ulloa's faction as one of several "leftist guerrilla groups [in Honduras] that have resorted to terrorist tactics in the past."
