Homeland Security Reports over 270 Members of Migrant Caravan Are Convicts or Known Gang Members

Share

The approaching migrant caravan has raised concerns for many people. President Donald Trump has made it clear they will not be allowed in.

But for some, like Fox News’ Shep Smith, there is nothing to worry about. He even said so on his show, assuring viewers that it was not an invasion and no one was coming to get them. Nothing to worry about at all.

But Mr. Smith and those like him are very wrong. A report from Homeland Security indicates that almost 300 members of the migrant caravan are convicts or known gang members. “So far, there are over 270 individuals along the caravan route that have criminal histories, including known gang membership.”

And it gets worse, reported Breitbart News.

The convictions includes those of “sexual assault on a child, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, and assault on a female.”

President Trump was criticized for talking about “very bad people coming” and “hardened criminals coming in,” but he was right.

The Department of Homeland Security report also noted that Mexican officials have publicly said that “criminal groups have infiltrated the caravan.” While the report also stated that individuals from multiple countries had joined the group, independent journalists on the scene have also been sharing reports of the same on Twitter and YouTube, including Judicial Watch.

According to the DHS report, some of the additional countries represented in the caravans include “Somalia, India, Haiti, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh.” The report makes clear that there is a large number in the caravan that nothing is known about, so the number of convicts and gang members could be higher.

In the Judicial Watch interview, some caravan migrants have stated that they are leaving for economic reasons, such as getting jobs, money, and getting medical care. Not all are “fleeing violence” as establishment media and their supporters claim. Some are bringing violence with them, as evidenced by their behavior along the way.

In fact, Breitbart wrote that even the Mexican ambassador to the United State spoke of how violent some of them are. “Unfortunately, some of the people in the caravan have been very violent against authority, even though they have offered the possibility of entering in compliance with immigration law and refugee status.”

And more groups keep forming. A fourth migrant caravan is reportedly on its way to the United States. This one also with no regard for the law.

And there is one more piece of horrifying news in the report about the caravans.

Do you believe the migrant caravans should be allowed into the United States?

While it is made up of approximately 50 percent males, the women and children who are present are being pushed to “the front of the groups to act as human shields when the caravans approach military or police,” according to the Interior Minister of Guatemala.

That is not the behavior of peaceful people seeking a better life. Such people don’t need “human shields” and put on their best behavior so they will be accepted and allowed in. Clearly that is not what is happening with any of these groups.
