(Bizpacreview) – The caravan of migrants headed toward the U.S. is an “elaborately planned” ploy that’s benefiting gangsters and human traffickers who are smuggling children, according to Guatemalan officials — who just rescued 7 unaccompanied minors being smuggled inside the caravan.
“There’s lots of human trafficking,” a Guatemalan official told 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.”
Democrats and the mainstream media have breathlessly advanced the false narrative that the migrant caravan is an organic, spontaneous movement of hapless Central Americans in pursuit of the “American Dream.”
In reality, officials in Guatemala and Honduras say the caravan is a well-organized, well-financed, orchestrated movement intended to destabilize Central American countries and/or bombard the United States with thousands of poor Latin Americans.
“It’s very strategic and extremely organized,” a Guatemalan government official told Judicial Watch. “There is nothing spontaneous about it.”
Most of the 7,000 people in the caravan claim they are political refugees, but they undercut their own argument when many rejected Mexico’s offer of political asylum.
In reality, almost all of them are economic migrants — in which case, they should get in line like everyone else who wants to immigrate to the U.S. and do it legally.
Judicial Watch spoke to numerous migrants, who “repeated the same rehearsed line when asked who organized the caravan, insisting it was a spontaneous event, even though there were clearly organizers shouting instructions in Spanish and putting select persons in front of cameras for interviews.”
Democrats and the media have slammed President Trump as a “racist” for enforcing longstanding federal immigration laws, even though they blithely cheered on Barack Obama and Bill Clinton when they held the same policy position, as BizPac Review reported.
“We are a generous and welcoming people here in the United States,” then-Senator Obama said in 2005. “But those who enter the country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law and they are showing disregard for those who are following the law.”
