Video: Ami Horowitz: The Truth Behind the Caravan

Ami Horowitz journeys to Mexico to find out the real reason why there is a caravan of migrants on its way to the United States’ border with its southern neighbor. The caravan is being orchestrated and logistically supplied like a military operation by some very wealthy people and the UN. This looks like an invasion, organised by members of the US power elite, under a thin pretense of humanitarian aid. Some interesting comments under the video, including about how Venezuelans are crossing the border to Brazil to escape famine, but there is no sign of the UN or other AID programs there.

I tried to post this comment beneath the Telesur article, but my post vanished - James:

More than three years after German Chancellor Angela Merkel illegally announced that any refugee who made it to Germany from North Africa or the Middle East could stay - thus precipitating the subsequent crises of mass immigration in Germany France, Sweden and the UK - much of the anti-imperialist left, including a number of governments unfortunately still carry with them the same 'bleeding heart' pro-refugee pro-open-borders baggage promoted by the billionaire open-borders advocate, George Soros. Soros almost certainly colluded with Angela Merkel and the Mediterranean people-smugglers in 2015 and either Soros and other similarly wealthy individuals have colluded to cause the current Migrant Caravan.

An example is the Telesur of the Bolivarian government of Venezuela. Since the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was first elected in 1998, Venezuela has been in the cross-hairs of the United States' military.

On nearly all domestic and international issues - Latin America, Syria, Israel, Palestine, Ukraine, Russia, Lebanon, Iran, NATO warmongering... - Telesur is highly informative, particularly in comparison to the global corporate newsmedia.

However, the editors of Telesur apparently presume that the people of some industrialised countries, particularly of the United States, don't have the right to decide who may or may not enter their country through their borders. An example of Telesur's misreporting of the immigration crisis is to be found in US-Mexico Border: Migrants Stuck Between a Rock And Hard Place (18/11/18) | Telesur:

"I cry a lot to not be able to feed them as I'd like...I just want an opportunity," said Orellana, a 26 year-old mother of three, who is currently situated at a shelter in Mexicali, which shares a border with California.

For his part, Tijuana's mayor has recently called for a referendum to limit the entry of Central American migrants, calling them a "hoard" and stoking negative reactions against these people who are facing a dire humanitarian situation.

"We don't want you here!" and "Migrants are pigs," are some of the negative reactions that Tijuana residents have shouted at migrants in the Mexican city, according to the San Diego Tribune.

Whilst depicting unfavourably the understandable hostility of local Mexicans towards the immigrants, the article also fails to address the concerns that ordinary United States' citizens, north of the border, have about the threatened continuation of the mass influx of illegal immigrants into their country. This article also glosses over the fact that most people on the Migrant Caravan are young unaccompanied males.

Few ordinary Americans north of the border, who read articles like this from Venezuela's state newsagency, are likely to be influenced to want to defend Venezuela, Nicaragua or Cuba against the invasions planned by the ruers of the United States.
