The so-called migrant caravan of refugees that is making its way to the U.S. from Central America via Mexico is threatening to make it into the U.S. by any means necessary.
The group, which is highly organized and is reportedly being partially funded by the George Soros connected liberal activists, now has the full support of the United Nations.
Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández, a conservative, said in a local newspaper report 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.
The UN Refugee Agency is demanding that President Trump accept the caravan of refugees, which some estimates now put at 10,000-strong. In an interview with Voice of America, a spokesman for the UN Refugee Agency said:
Our position globally is that the individuals who are fleeing persecution and violence need to be given access to territory and protection including refugee status and determination procedure. And, if the people who are fleeing persecution and violence enter Mexico, they need to be provided access to the Mexican asylum system and those entering the United States need to be provided access to the American asylum system.
UN Backing up rhetoric with Boots on the Ground in Mexico
The United Nation’s Refugee Agency (UNHRC) has sent at least 45 people into Mexico to help the Caravan successfully make it to the U.S.
The Mexico News Daily reported on Tuesday:
UNHCR spokesperson Adrian Edwards told a press conference in Geneva, Switzerland today that “in any situation like this it is essential that people have the chance to request asylum and have their international protection needs properly assessed, before any decision on return/deportation is made.”
A Caravan of Criminals and Disease?
Despite mainstream media attempts to paint this caravan as a bunch of poor children and families fleeing a repressive government, it looks like a majority of the people “fleeing” to the US border are military-age men, many of whom have criminal records, ties to organized crime, and disease.
According to Judicial Watch, who has people on the ground in Mexico:
The migrant caravan marching northbound through Central America is an “elaborately planned” movement that’s benefiting human smugglers and bringing disturbing numbers of violent gang members and other criminal elements through Guatemala, according to government sources in the capital city. “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.”
The Department of Homeland Security has confirmed there are in fact criminals and dangerous gang members traveling inside the illegal caravan. In addition, they confirmed President Trump’s claims that “middle easterners” and citizens of countries outside of North and South America, are also in the caravan.
.@DHSgov can confirm that there are individuals within the caravan who are gang members or have significant criminal histories.

Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, told Breitbart:
“It just makes no sense from a public health standpoint to let in a lot of people who have not been screened,” Orient told Amanda House, deputy political editor for Breitbart News and host of Breitbart News Sunday on the SiriusXM Patriot Channel.
Orient said that unlike the days when Ellis Island was the place where migrants were tested for diseases and put in quarantine to protect against diseases in the incubation stage, in recent years people have been allowed to enter the country and settle across the country without proper screenings.
Orient said border security is not only important for public safety but for public health.
“I think we really need to control entrance to our county,” Orient said.
“It just doesn’t make any sense in these days of exotic diseases [and] increasing antibiotic resistance to be allowing an invading flood of people,” Orient said.
Migrant related disease has been a problem for some time; in fact, back in 2014, we started warning that an outbreak of Enterovirus D68 coincided with a flood of migrants that occurred right after the Obama administration allowed tens of thousands of illegal alien minors to cross the US border.
From Whooping Cough, Measles outbreaks, and the mystery disease EV-D68, which is causing paralysis in young children, The United States seems to be a ticking time bomb of disease. In fact, as Dr. Marc Siegel, professor of medicine at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, warned in 2014, “As many as 50,000 children, mostly from Central American countries … are not being detained for the purpose of identifying illness, with Immigration and Customs Enforcement relying on self-report of symptoms, and many have already been sent to other states, where disease can spread.”
According to the World Health Organization, diseases that are thought to be extinct by the public are still very much alive in South America. In fact, Leprosy continues to plague 24 out of 35 countries in Latin America with Health Ministries registering an average of 27,000 new cases yearly.
Second Migrant Caravan Carrying Firearms and Gasoline Bombs
A second, more dangerous caravan is attempting to join the larger group. According to Mexican authorities, some migrants from the second caravan making its way through Mexico to the U.S. border are carrying firearms and gasoline bombs.
Mexican Interior Secretary Alfonso Navarrete said police had been attacked with “stones, firecrackers” and “glass bottles” and claimed that some traveling with the caravan are carrying firearms and gasoline bombs.
Military to Deploy Troops to the Border
The U.S. military, under the order of President Trump, said it would send 5,200 troops to the border in response to the caravan of migrants from Central America.
“Our first level of effort will be to harden the points of entry and address key gaps in areas around the points of entry,” said Air Force Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, commander of the U.S. Northern Command, which is responsible for the continental U.S.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Sunday was blunt. She said the caravan winding its way through Mexico to the U.S. is “not getting in.”
“There a legal way to get into this country,” she told Fox News Sunday. “Those who choose to enter illegally will be stopped.”
“This is an invasion of our Country, and our Military is waiting for you!” President Trump wrote Monday morning on Twitter.
Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border. Please go back, you will not be admitted into the United States unless you go through the legal process. This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!
