Many are asking questions about who is in the caravan headed for the US, so CBN News asked our contributing correspondent Chuck Holton to check it out.
He caught up with the caravan in the Mexican city of Tapachula…
-“I want to try and clarify some of what you’ve been hearing in the news media about this caravan moving north into the United States. First of all, the people in this caravan are not being paid to join the caravan. Their payoff comes when they get to the US,” Holton said.
-Holton spoke to numerous people in the caravan who said they joined the trek because they saw advertising for it on social media or heard about it on the news. He says the caravan has been organized by opposition political elements within Honduras who are supported by Venezuela, as well as a consortium of left-wing pro-immigration groups.
– “I can tell you it didn’t take me long to find four or five right away who are absolute felons who are coming north to try to get back into the United States,” Holton discovered.
-Meanwhile, some people are saying the trip is too difficult and are deciding to head home. Read more and check out the interviews…
NOTE: With thousands of asylum-seeking immigrants making their way toward the U.S.-Mexico border, the Trump administration is considering its options – to restrict or curtail their ability to enter the country. The Pentagon is preparing to deploy at least 800 troops to the US southern border, to compliment some 2,000 national guard troops and border patrol agents. President Trump describing the migrant caravan as a “national emergency.” -Fox News
