Univision correspondent Francisco Santa Anna — who has spent weeks embedded with the 7,000-strong caravan en route to the United States — confirmed that random people from Bangladesh joined the army of illegal migrants.
Santa Anna’s direct reporting from within the caravan contradicts liberal pundit Shepard Smith‘s denials (from the comfort of his posh Fox News studio in New York) that there are no potential criminals or “unknown Middle Easterners” secretly hidden within the caravan.
“Yesterday, when we were traveling through Guatemala, we noticed people from El Salvador and even people from Bangladesh,” Francisco Santa Anna reported on Spanish-language channel Unvision (via the Daily Caller).
“Can you imagine what they had to do to get here? They infiltrated themselves in this caravan and tried to cross with the crowd.”
With 148 million Muslims, Bangladesh is one of the largest Muslim population centers in the world. The country is “increasingly the site of Islamist violence,” Georgetown University professor C. Christine Fair wrote in Lawfare.
Meanwhile, people like Shepard Smith and Geraldo Rivera are crying crocodile tears for an army of migrants who show no respect for U.S. laws by demanding entry into the country, where taxpayers will pay for their housing, education, and healthcare.
Investigative journalist Sara Carter — who was reporting from the U.S.-Mexico border — said Guatemalan intelligence confirmed that people from Bangladesh and Africa had joined the caravan.
“I bumped into a number of young MS 13 gang members,” Carter tweeted.

Shepard Smith took special delight in suggesting that President Trump was lying when he said there were criminals and unknown Middle Easterners spotted within the migrant caravan.
As Univision and Sara Carter both independently reported, Smith was again spouting fake news that was prejudiced by his anti-Trump animus and had nothing to do with facts.
“President Trump is calling the caravan a national emergency,” Shepard said. “He is claiming criminals and ‘unknown alleged Middle Easterners’ are mixed in with the crowd. Fox News knows of no evidence to suggest that the president is accurate on that matter. And the president has offered no evidence to support what he has said.”
