The Democrats like to claim that the caravan is all asylum-seeking migrants. They try to paint the picture of innocent families, or the single mother and their children being turned away at the border. But as time goes on it is getting more apparent how wrong these claims are. Recently MSNBC admitted that the migrants are mostly single males and now even CNN has through an interview, semi-admitted that these are not the defenseless asylum seekers they were originally claimed to be.
In an interview with Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott, it was explained how you could tell that these were not asylum seekers.
“I do not believe that is true,” Scott responded. “I believe that there are definitely people in that group that are going to try to claim asylum. The vast majority of those, from what we call ‘the Northern Triangle’ are economic migrants, though. They do not meet the qualifications to get asylum here. They can still apply, that’s a different issue.
However, what I saw on the border yesterday was not people walking up to border patrol agents and asking to claim asylum. Matter of fact, one of the groups that I watched — one of the groups that several of them were arrested — they passed 10 to 15 marked border patrol units …. numerous uniformed personnel, as they were chanting, waving the Honduran flag, and throwing rocks at the agents. If they were truly asylum seekers, they would have just walked up and surrendered, and that did not take place.”
