The Caravan Moves On And the Questions Multiply. by The Elephant's Child

A second “caravan” has been formed and crossed the border from Honduras into Guatemala on Sunday, and on to the town of Chiquimula by Monday night.  The first Caravan (the name the media has conferred) which has been estimated at over 7,000 by the UN, the Mexican newspaper El Universal says it has swelled to around 14,000. A Fox News crew traveling with the caravan has footage showing trucks handing out food, water and toilet paper to the migrants.

Oddly, no one has mentioned whether these people have television at home and if they have seen the vast caravans of migrants making their way to Europe and settling in. These are not spontaneous uprisings. but organized and paid groups. Investor’s Business Daily says:

The “caravan” of illegal immigrants from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras now making its way to the U.S. border is no accident. The timing, planning and financing of this tragic parade has but one intent: to disrupt and influence our midterm elections. Is this what the left means by “election meddling”?

The heart-rending shots of dirt-poor people from Central America have been making the evening news, which pretends this is some kind of spontaneous movement to come to the U.S. rather than an organized attempt at disruption.

Women and children have been shoved to the fore of the columns to hide the fact that many of the 4,000 to 10,000-strong throng of people are in fact working-age males, not families. Already, in crossing the narrow entry from Guatemala into Mexico, the peaceful “caravan” members got violent, injuring four Mexican border police who stood in their way. It prompted a response from Mexico’s president.

Representative Louis Gohmert (TX) has suggested using the RICO statutes to find out where the funding is coming from, Chavista Venezuelan oil money is suspected since the Chavista’s stated desire is to flood America with indigent migrants. They have ties to the Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a well known Chavez-supporting Honduras group. Soros is suspected. The media are not interested. Somebody is supporting pre-arranged and paid-for trucks which the migrants are climbing aboard.

But the migrants are also breaking into Mexican grocery stores and helping themselves to everything. They are already leaving behind all sorts of stuff in a mess, but including strollers and bedding. All will become clearer as time passes. It’s a long way walking up through Mexico to the border. Fox News interviewed one migrant who said that there are criminals “everywhere” in th crowd. Other sources have identified Bangladeshis. It is very likely that there are MS-13 and other terrorists among the numbers.
