The illegal migrant caravan is beginning to lose steam.
But it is still far from over.
And a newly discovered terrorist link proves just how dangerous it is.
The illegal migrant caravan has been dominating news headlines for months.
And despite solid evidence of criminals and gang members being present, the media is painting it as a peaceful group of women and children escaping crime and poverty.
Time and time again, that is proven false, with the media either ignoring it or willfully lying.
But the latest development is so extreme that the media will have a hard time dispelling it, so they are instead largely ignoring it.
That’s because, a new portion of the caravan is now in Tijuana, Mexico.
And the person leading it is a suspected terrorist, who is accused of a 1987 bombing that wounded six American soldiers.
Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa, along with 100 Honduran migrants marched to the U.S. consulate in Tijuana with demands.
In a letter, he demands either entry into the United States or a payment of $50,000 per person.
The payment, which would equal at least $5 million is said to be to repay what the U.S. has “stolen” from Honduras.
“It may seem like a lot of money to you,” Ulloa told the San Diego Union-Tribune. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United States has stolen from Honduras.”
Ulloa, a native to Honduras, lives in Mexico under asylum status.
After the 1987 bombing, Mexico granted him asylum, calling him a “freedom fighter.”
But the U.S. sees it much differently, seeing him as a suspect in the bombing, which targeted a Chinese restaurant.
A 1987 appropriations bill links him as a suspect, also stating that “the bomb was directed at American soldiers and did in fact wound American soldiers and an American contractor.”
Ulloa denies the allegations against him, but even if he’s telling the truth, he has well known extremist ties.
He admits he was a part of the Revolutionary Popular Forces Lorenzo Zelaya, a left-wing group that claims responsibility for hijacking a plane in 1982.
The U.S. government describes the group as a “leftist guerrilla groups [in Honduras] that have resorted to terrorist tactics in the past.”
This development is just more proof backing Trump’s claim that dangerous people are in the caravan.
Trump has continually referred to the caravan as an “invasion,” angering many in the media.
CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta even had his press credentials temporarily pulled in response to a confrontation over that claim.
But now it’s even harder to claim that the caravan isn’t an invasion.
Despite being largely unsuccessful, some were able to enter the country illegally.
And MS-13 members are some of those spotted on the border.
It is unlikely the media will walk back any of their coverage to the contrary.
But that doesn’t matter much anymore.
President Trump is able to get his message directly to the people.
The media doesn’t matter as much as they used to, which is great for President Trump.
Do you think Trump is right to call the caravan an invasion?
