Why are these Central Americans marching north towards the US border called a caravan?
Caravan (noun): a company of travelers on a journey through desert or hostile regions by Merriam Webster.
So when the liberal media uses the term Caravan they are saying by definition these people have right on their side. They are not the hostile force, they are the victims traveling through hostile territory.
However, if you called them an invading force, which is a better definition, since they wish to cross the border illegally, the caravan would not be able to garner the sympathy of the Left.
As I wrote over the weekend, who is funding this caravan’s sojourn across Central American, providing supplies, aid and comfort to these people?
Now of course these people, who are pawns in this operation, are supposed to show up at the border in time to have the Trump administration react with a response that will have an impact on the midterm elections.
But let’s do a little math here.
If the caravan is presently near Tapachula, Mexico, heading toward the Arizona border. That puts them 2,020 miles away. That would calculate that they are 66 days away if they are walking, according to Google maps. That means they will not be at the border until Christmas at the earliest, if they walked 10 hours a day.
So, how will it be explained that there is a horde of “immigrants” at the border the Saturday before Election Day to give the organizers espousing a world without borders the optics they desire to effect the election?
I know people who have legally come from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador and are making a go of it here in America. They did not come to America in a marauding horde, wishing to cross the border en mass.
To conclude, this is not a xenophobic rant, this is about American sovereignty and the right to defend our borders, unlike what the Open Society Foundation members are doing to Europe.
