We’ve been saying this since the caravan was first formed in Honduras. The overwhelming majority of the migrants are males – not families – not women and children.

Even this MSNBC reporter had to admit the truth about caravan migrants at the border
An MSNBC reporter unraveled a common narrative on the left about caravan migrants while reporting about the situation at the U.S. border Monday.
“This has become such a polarizing issue…”
Gadi Schwartz was reporting for MSNBC from the border when he admitted that the majority of the migrants were males, and that the majority of them were not talking about requesting refugee status at all.
The exchange began when MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle asked Schwartz to undermine the claims from President Donald Trump and right-wing critics of the caravans.
“Some people look at these images and they listen to the president who says it’s not women and children, it’s stone cold criminals,” said Ruhle. “So my first question is, you’re in that tent camp, besides that family give us the profile of who is there mostly and what are they looking for.”
“Because it seems as though, to your point, they don’t actually have the necessary information so they know how to cross the border, there could be people yesterday who are running because they thought it was their only chance,” she added.
“Right,” Schwartz responded. “It’s very difficult because this has become such a polarizing issue.”
“You’re gonna see a lot of families here,” he explained, “a lot of children, but the truth is the majority of the people that are a part of this caravan, especially outside, if we can make our way all the way over there, we’ll show you, the majority of them are men.”
