How in the world did a caravan of migrants that began with 200-or-so individuals grow to over 7,000 individuals in such a short amount of time? If you thought there were other forces at work organizing the caravan, you might not be as crazy as you’d think. Fox News’ Sara Carter has been following the caravan, and it’s not just Hondurans and other Latin American citizens making the march towards America. “Guatemalan intelligence discovered people from India, Bangladesh, Africa had also joined in with the caravan -I bumped into a number of young MS 13 gang members,” Carter wrote.

Speaking of MS-13 gang members, they’re hardly the only worry. Guatemala’s President Jimmy Morales claimed that nearly 100 ISIS terrorists had been apprehended in his country (though there was no specific indication that any are part of the caravan).

When interviewing men in the caravan, Carter said most gave the same rehearsed answer, that “this is not politics – this is about poverty.”

But is it really not political? One migrant went off script and blasted President Donald Trump. “Donald Trump is the anti-christ” said one of the caravan migrants to CNN. “If he doesn’t repent, he’s going to hell. We are not criminals, we are workers and fighters!” Watch below (relevant part starts at 0:24):

So these migrants think Trump is Satan, but want to immigrate into his country? No one who isn’t politically motivated would make such an insane statement. One also has to wonder why some of these migrants are flying the Honduran flag as they travel to the U.S. Why show pride in the country you’re running the hell away from?

The existence of migrants from India, Bangladesh, and Africa in the group of 7,000 migrants shows there’s either some planning in assembling this caravan or that non-Latin American illegals are among those who exploit our lack of border security to enter the country (or both!). It’s a wakeup call that border security is needed now more than ever.

What should be done about the illegal migrant caravan?

Trump is already increasing the stakes to Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador for allowing this caravan to proceed as far as it has. Having already cut their foreign aid this year, Trump is threatening to cut it down to zero if no action is taken. Trump also threatened military action.

If the caravan is coordinated, the timing couldn’t be worse for the Democrats in Congress who support open borders. Trump’s winning presidential campaign was built upon a platform of border security, and this further allows him to play off that issue. A poll from Harvard-Harris shows that 84 percent of Americans oppose sanctuary cities, and 69 oppose abolishing ICE. Is there any doubt that just as many oppose this caravan?

Between the Kavanaugh confirmation circus, Elizabeth Warren’s DNA results, and now this, how many more times are Democrats going to shoot themselves in the feet before the midterms?
