A caravan of 4,000 migrants from Honduras — waving Honduran flags — is marching toward the US-Mexico border to demand mass entry into the United States so they can escape the poverty and violence infesting their homelands.
The caravan has ballooned from about 160 migrants to 4,000 as news of the march spread like wildfire across Latin America, NBC News reported. There is mounting speculation that the mass onslaught is being financed by Democratic operatives backed by leftist billionaire George Soros.
Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz tweeted a disturbing video showing women being paid fistfuls of cash to join the caravan that is storming the U.S. border — just in time for the midterm elections.
The person handing out the cash specifically asks for women “volunteers,” presumably so the caravan doesn’t look as much like a mass invasion of military-age men in press photos.
Matt Gaetz, an attorney, tweeted: “Soros? US-backed NGOs? Time to investigate the source!” Gaetz said he got the video from a Honduran government official.

Matt Gaetz said he got the video from people inside the Honduran government.
It’s unconfirmed if Soros is behind this latest Central American caravan, but it wouldn’t be surprising, since the 88-year-old activist has spent tens of millions of dollars to obstruct and undermine President Trump — both before and after his election.
George Soros is also rumored to be behind the violent anti-Trump riots that have sprouted up across the nation since Trump was elected.

Soros’ Open Society Foundations spends $940 million a year in 100 countries to promote its leftist, open-borders agenda, according to the Washington Post.
In the United States alone, the Open Society spends $150 million every year financing Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, which increasingly has become anti-free speech.
President Trump has threatened to pull federal aid to Honduras if its president doesn’t stop the caravan from storming the U.S. The United States has committed $2.6 billion in aid for Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador since 2014, according to the AP.
In 2019, the U.S. has pledged $65.7 million in aid to Honduras. President Trump said he will cut off that gravy train if the Honduran government doesn’t stop the caravan.
The United States has strongly informed the President of Honduras that if the large Caravan of people heading to the U.S. is not stopped and brought back to Honduras, no more money or aid will be given to Honduras, effective immediately!

The Center for Immigration Studies tweeted this alarming anecdote: “One of our researchers, during an annual border tour, once asked a Guatemalan woman near the Mexico-US border why she was crossing.”
“I saw people doing it on CNN,” she said.

Potential migrants (and smugglers) track US domestic politics closely, and react accordingly. https://t.co/9P0xoJpYqs

Actor James Woods pointed out how politically convenient the timing of this mass caravan is. “Another dog-and-pony show just in time for the midterms.”

In March 2018, another caravan of migrants from Central America marched toward the U.S. border, as BizPac Review reported.
At the time, left-wing activists masquerading as “journalists” said the United States was obligated to help the migrants.
Keep in mind that the U.S. has a $22 trillion national debt, and that homelessness, drug addiction, and poverty remain key issues within our own country.

Patriots, please vote on November 6. America’s future depends on you. Build the wall!
Fact: illegal immigration costs more than the border wall.

I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..
