Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen did an interview with Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge. In it, she revealed information that will be shocking to some. In this short video, five significant fears about the migrant caravans heading to our border were revealed.
- Not all “migrants” are from Central America. “We absolutely see people from the Middle East, from southeast Asia, from other parts of the world. They are not just from Central America.”
- They were organized and funded by… someone. “With respect to the timing and particular organization of these caravans, they’re not ‘organic,’ if you will. They’re definitely organized. They’re financed.”
- Women and children are being used to frustrate border police and the military. “We don’t want to get into a confrontation with a child or women so they’re almost being used as barriers at the front of some of these caravans.”
- Other caravans have fewer women and children. “The other caravans coming up are mostly single males.”
This last point is the one that should concern us the most. The first migrant caravan is an opening salvo, a way to set a precedent for the southern border to open up and allow future caravans to come in unimpeded. This is why we’re seeing more women and children in the first caravan. It gets most of the publicity. It gets the attention from the government and the press. By the time subsequent waves reach the border, their hope is interest will have waned.
The press and the left are determined to make everyone pay less attention to the migrant caravans. If we do, it would be a huge mistake. The threats are real and probably higher than most Americans even realize.
