VIDEO: Migrant Caravan has People ‘From All Over the World’
A second caravan has started to form on the Guatemala and Honduras border.
On Monday, I blogged that reporters discovered Bangladeshis mixed in the migrant caravan moving towards the US border.
Now Judicial Watch and Sara Carter have reported that people “from all over the world” are in the caravan as the MSM has slammed President Donald Trump for making claims that criminals and people from the Middle East have joined the caravan.
There’s also a second caravan forming in Guatemala.

The migrant caravan began in Honduras and went through Guatemala to get to the Mexican border. This has caused problems as President Jimmy Morales said the country “has absorbed the huge cost of mobilizing police and military to return thousands of people to Honduras.” Morales stated that this kind of mass immigration “endangers lives” and officials are “doing everything possible to stop the caravan while still respecting human rights.”
Guatemalan officials spoke to Judicial Watch:
“MS-13 gang members have been detained and coyotes (human smugglers) are joining the march with clients who pay to get smuggled into the United States,” a Guatemalan official told Judicial Watch. People from Asian countries waiting to get smuggled into the U.S. through Central America are also integrating with poor Hondurans in the caravan, a high-level Guatemalan government source confirmed. Among them are nationals of Bangladesh, a south Asian Islamic country that’s well known as a recruiting ground for terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda Indian Subcontinent (AQIS). “There are lots of dirty businesses associated with this,” Guatemalan authorities told Judicial Watch. “There’s lots of human trafficking.”
Morales also wants to find out who is behind the caravan. The migrants interviewed by Judicial Watch claim it is an organic and spontaneous event, but Morales and Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández disagree:
Guatemalan officials disagree, estimating that the caravan is a movement of radicalized forces to destabilize Central American countries. Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández, a conservative, echoes that assessment. In a local newspaper report published last week Hernández asserted that leftist interests seeking to destabilize the country are manipulating migrants. Women and children are being used without regard to the risks to their lives, Hernández said. “The irregular mobilization was organized for political reasons to negatively affect the governance and image of Honduras and to destabilize the peace of neighboring countries,” the president said, adding that many have returned to the country after realizing they’ve been fooled.
Another official described the caravan as “very complex, not a simple march” and “nothing spontaneous about it.”
Reuters reported that US officials have not confirmed these claims. Outgoing US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley stated that we have “to look at political motives behind the caravan” and insisted that “Honduran politicians allied with Venezuelan & Cuban socialist dictators are encouraging the caravan to undermine US-friendly gov’t of (President Juan Orlando) Hernandez.”
Award winning journalist Sara Carter is also in Guatemala:

The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that a second migrant caravan has started to form in a city near the Honduras and Guatemala border:
Church-run charities assisting migrants and activists say as many as 2,500
Hondurans who crossed into Guatemala in recent days have gathered in the city of Chiquimula, near the border with Honduras. But estimates of the size of the new group vary widely, from that number down to a few hundred, according to Francesca Fontanini, spokeswoman for the Americas region for the United Nations office on refugees.
The migrants say they plan to head to Ciudad Tecun Uman, the Guatemalan border town that was overwhelmed by a larger group of migrants who rushed into Mexico over the weekend.
The charity workers said large caravans are ideal because it offers them more protection from traffickers, who often “charge between $4,000 to $8,000 a person for dangerous treks to the U.S. southern border.”
NBC News announced a caravan forming from El Salvador. Sources said it’s still getting together and a report from WhatsApp said they will leave on October 31:
The caravan’s movement is likely to trigger fierce backlash from President Donald Trump who has stoked fear about El Salvadoran migrants, particularly because nationals from the Central American country began the dangerous MS-13 gang.
However, the report indicates the early members of the caravan are immigrant families traveling with children.
It is unclear what has stoked this particular caravan to begin forming, but immigration advocates and experts believe its members may have been inspired by the Honduran caravan and hope to find safety in numbers.
Immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, many of whom travel as families and claim asylum, have presented a challenge for border agents as their numbers have surged under the past two presidential administrations.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
So awful. Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it does. Snowball rolling down the hill. This will not end well.
” This will not end well…”
That’s the point of the seditionists who organized this.
This seems consistent with Soros and his open boarders agenda.
Close the U.S. southern border, Mr. President. Period.
It’s the only sensable response until these invading mobs can be restrained by their home countries, or absorbed into neighboring nations.
This crap of ‘families’ marching north to claim assylum by the thousands is no way to run an immigration system.
Close the southern border, Mr. President.
We need to interdict all buses, trucks and trains long before they reach our border – which means either the Mexican authorities do it, or we militarily invade Mexico, destroy rail lines, bridges and establish road blocks hundreds of miles below our border.
We need to stop them now or we’ll have a massacre on our border – we’ll be obliged to succor tens of thousands of people.
As all have said, there’s just no way for these people to make what we would normally term a ‘forced foot march’ of over 1200+ miles without significant logistical support.
Really despise the word “caravan” used to describe these people. This is an invasion – a planned, blatant assault on our sovereignty.
It’s a media construct to call them caravans, just like the BS “Undocumented Workers” because it hurts the criminals feeling to be called illegal. This is by design meant to soften the image of what this invasion force truly is.
There is NO WAY this is a ‘grass roots’ thing.
SOMEONE is paying for the ALL the logistics.
Close the border!
Excellent situation for the use of land mines.
… Just make sure the mine fields are marked.
Intercept the transport buses before they get to the marchers. UN and Mexico supposedly in negotiations to setup ‘refugee’ camps. Huge mistake!
This is exactly what happens when you allow a porous border. When you allow social programs to be given away to those who are not citizens.
Make the Southern Border a DMZ area staffed with Military personnel. Have a buffer zone of miles between Mexico and the US where anyone traveling there without the proper paperwork will be detained and then deported without legal representation.
Obama might not have built this horrendous immigration system, but he certainly contributed to the problem, as so many Congress critters did. This is an invasion force. They are looking to force their way in to our country illegally, they have used force already to gain admittance into Mexico, but Mexico wasn’t going to put up a fight because they know they are just a pass-through, so the sooner they let them pass, the sooner they are out of Mexico.
There is also big funding going behind these groups. They are being transported in trucks, which don’t come free. They are being given food, and not a one looks like they are been walking miles every day, all wearing clean close, looking freshly showered, and quite a number are over weight, so they are getting fed too. That doesn’t come to them for nothing.
The immigration laws need to be either enforced to the full extent that can be, or changed. One such needs to be where non-citizens coming into this country illegally, not through normal channels, of which there are many, get zero government assistance from the US, which includes healthcare, schooling, and so on. Businesses caught employing illegals will get ever escalating fines, if they are huge employer like Amazon (as a for instance) and have over a set number of violations in a year, they lose part of their business to the government in a RICO type action.
Cities that are sanctuary cities are welcome to do as they wish, however, they are to get zero federal dollars in support, including federal grants and projects. If they have the money to be a sanctuary against the interests of the US, then they can live without the federal dollars coming in. That would also include closing any military bases and ROTC programs within that city. Everything.
It is past time to play hard ball with this, as it will only keep getting worse.
Even the leadership of the Central American nations know two very important things about these “caravans”: they are not spontaneous and they are remotely funded. While various individuals and groups may be taking advantage of the “caravans” for their own purposes, the caravans themselves are well-funded, orchestrated events.
These are nothing more than attempts to destabilize the United states, and some nations in Central America, through invasions by third world migrants. It has been showing results in Europe and is now being run on an open basis against the USA.
This is sedition.
Reaction from attorney general sessions:
That’s his reaction to everything!
Wish we can send him on a caravan on it sway out of the attorney general’s office.
We may get our wish in a couple of weeks.
Because just stating the obvious that these hordes will overwhelm the services available for our own destitute, create crime, disease and social unrest was a winning formula to protect the citizens of Europe from this type of thing. Right?
The Cloward Piven strategy to destroy the US:
Well, 80% of the invading force is men of military age while the remaining 20% is made up of camp followers. Pretty much the way it’s always been historically.
Starting to look like standard MO for Democrats – False Narrative – Russians Trump, Kavanaugh, Immigration, Roy Moore, Porn Stars, Taxes and now bombs.
Ground Zero for all this optics are coming from SDNY FBI and links to Schumer and Clinton.
Honduras connection with State Department Hillary and Military take over in 2009. It all makes sense now.
Dems must cheat to win since they do not have merit to actually show that they did something.
trump is savvy, no question–really hope he’s got this because the numbers keep growing and suddenly you’re going to overwhelm the law enforcement/military folks charged with closing/defending the border–already at least a couple of divisions in number(including, of course, women and children for the cameras)–that’s a lot of bodies to contain/deter/deny entry–reluctant to employ force(as they certainly know)perhaps fire hoses/water cannons–lord, wish we could get a hold of the bastards that organized this–agree, don’t see this ending well for anyone
Trump is savvy, but he doesn’t have this. They’re getting in.
He needs reinforcements from we citizens to complain loudly-constantly to our Congressmen. Congress is happy with this or it wouldn’t exist.
Time to get militant. If you’re unable to get militant, at least make the phone calls. No one believes me, but they count phone calls. And bricks. I mailed a brick this week.
If he blocks them with tear gas, etc, he loses the democrats and the rinos.
If he lets them in, we lose our country, and Trump loses his base.
In other words, if he blocks the border, he loses nothing and the US wins.
President Jimmy Morales. Morales told me “We do not want charity, we want cooperation” as he discussed working with U.S. Administration
Perfect. A good neighbor policy to aid emigration reform.
Mexico has been profiting handsomely, over 70 billion a year in transfer of money from Mexicans in America sending money to family in Mexico.
It is time to start seizing that money under criminal forfeiture laws and using it to pay for border enforcement.
We also need to plug the anchor baby loophole, and make it retroactive going back 40 years. Enough of this BS.
I have always looked upon Wesrern Union as a huge money laundering operation based on all the Mexicans showing up with cash to send south of the border at my local grocery store.
Meanwhile, word comes that the “11 million” number that the media has been using for the past 20 years to describe the number of illegals in this country is as bogus as one would think it must be. The actual number runs closer to 7-9% of the entire US population – 20-30 million.
read in the last couple of hours that mattis is sending 800 troops to our southern border–come on–a battalion? to contain a group at least two divisions in number? realize he’s a trained soldier but, given the circumstances, would rather have too many folks than too few–this isn’t some ” bandaid ”
situation–why not a division at least? and armor not just infantry or mixed arms–of course, could be just early innings
