Correction/Clarification: Unemployment among Black and Latino Americans hit it’s lowest point “on record” during Trump’s tenure. The article previously stated as Fact that Soros has funded “migrant armies” entering Europe. While we work on finding concrete proof for this claim, we have reworded the piece to show this is just conjecture at this point, as are the allegations of Soros, and the foundations he funds’, role in paying to move the Honduran caravan North.
As you consider what is unfolding with the march from Honduras to the United States keep in mind that a recent Harvard/Harris poll showed “a stunning 10 percent percent rise in Trump approval among Hispanics.”
Steve Cortes, President Trump’s former coordinator for Hispanic outreach, cited the reasons why in an article he wrote for RealClearPolitics.com:
That growing support among Latinos would surely surprise many Trump critics in Washington and the legacy media, who remain fixated on border issues. So intense is their hysteria regarding border enforcement that people like former CIA Director Michael Hayden compared our detention policies to the Auschwitz concentration camp in a tweet and MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch proclaimed on “Morning Joe” that ALL Trump voters are essentially Nazis.
Amid that media madness, Main Street America focuses not so much on concocted controversies but on bread-and-butter kitchen table issues like rising wages and soaring confidence among small businesses and consumers.
For Democrats who threw the white working class overboard in 2016, the fact that Hispanics are more motivated by kitchen table issues than illegal borders crossers stands as a gross miscalculation that cost them the presidency.
Now that Trump’s policies have proceeded the lowest unemployment rates for Hispanics in our country’s history (on record), the president’s support among Latinos has passed the 40% level. This represents a death knell for Democrats who are running on an open borders agenda, increasing taxes, and a return to policies that stymy small business formation and growth that are of particular importance to Hispanics.
Now consider the caravan keeping these poll numbers in mind.
When the caravan left Honduras it was comprised of 1300 migrants. As it approaches Mexico’s southern border it has reportedly swelled to an estimated 4000 migrants.
This is not a few migrants trekking thousands of miles seeking a better life in the United States. Four thousand people marching nearly 2000 miles en masse represents an army. An invading army at that. And armies need to be fed, housed and have their medical and hygienic needs allotted for.
That takes money. Lots of money.
Coupled with the timing of their estimated arrival to coincide with the midterm elections this has all of the earmarks of a well financed political operation.
Buttressing that suspicion is this video tweeted by Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz:
BREAKING: Footage in Honduras giving cash 2 women & children 2 join the caravan & storm the US border @ election time. Soros? US-backed NGOs? Time to investigate the source! pic.twitter.com/5pEByiGkkN

Laura Ingraham estimated the cost of moving this caravan safely and efficient over the nearly month-long march:
Who is funding the migrant “caravan”? Each migrant’s passage can cost as much as $7K each. Per capita income Honduras is $2.3 K.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, who retains his security clearance and his contacts with those at the highest reaches of government appears to have accepted Ingraham’s estimate as plausible and then asked:
Who is paying for this Central American caravan of 3,000 people so they can attack American sovereignty?if this caravan succeeds how big will the next one be? Why do news media and the Democrats favor law breakers?
— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) October 17, 2018
If Laura Ingraham’s estimate of $7,000 per person is right the curret caravan is at least a $21 million project. Paid for by someone who wants to undermine America.

The fact that many have accused George Soros of financed many of these invading migrant “armies” throughout Europe should not be dismissed when evaluating what is really taking place here.
The expectation is that upon the caravan’s arrival at our southern border, the Democrats’ propaganda arm (aka the mainstream media) will swing into full emotional offense to paint anyone who dares protect the borders as a Nazi.
What’s really troubling is the amount of money flowing from the U.S. government to Soros connected NGO’s. Many of which took root under the Obama administration.
There is strong likelihood that funding for this caravan, that is intended to influence American voters in favor of the Democratic Party, has come from U.S. taxpayers.
Chew on that when deciding who to vote for this November.
