As an army of 1000 to 1500 illegal aliens heads towards the U.S. border in an attempt to instigate a confrontation with the Trump administration, the mainstream media is curiously complicit in promoting the pro-illegal-alien, anti-Trump narrative. For days, the mainstream media studiously ignored the impending invasion, after the story broke at BuzzFeed at the end of last month:
[emphasis added to quotes]
For five days now hundreds [“more than 1000”] of Central Americans — children, women, and men, most of them from Honduras — have boldly crossed immigration checkpoints, military bases, and police in a desperate, sometimes chaotic march toward the United States. Despite their being in Mexico without authorization, no one has made any effort to stop them.
Organized by a group of volunteers called Pueblos [sic] Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, the caravan is intended to help migrants safely reach the United States …
Note how the reporter, who was embedded with the illegal aliens, was unequivocal about their goal: to reach the United States. Compare this early, truthful reporting to the post-awareness reporting, which appeared in the mainstream media only after President Trump raised awareness of the horde via Twitter and after the organizers changed their own earlier narrative in response to the president’s tweets:
“The idea was never for this group of people to reach the border. It was more to achieve a sensible and clear solution” to migrants’ need to leave their countries, said Irineo Mujica, director of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the activist group behind the annual symbolic event.
Note especially that there is no mention of any religious purpose associated with the march, as suggested by this mainstream spin:
The “Stations of the Cross” caravans have been held annually in southern Mexico for about 10 years. They began as short processions of migrants, some dressed in biblical garb and carrying crosses, as an Easter-season protest against the kidnappings, extortion, beatings and killings suffered by many Central American migrants as they cross Mexico.
Try to find a photo of any marcher dressed in biblical garb or carrying a cross!
Similarly, there’s no mention in the initial story about the march being a protest of any kind , and no mention of any “immigrants rights conference” being the “final event.” (Some stories say the alleged conference will be in Mexico City, while others say it will be in Puebla.)
Despite the Mexican government’s recent assertion that it does not facilitate such efforts [“Under no circumstances does the Mexican government promote irregular migration”], the original reporter stated outright that nobody had attempted to stop these illegal aliens from traversing Mexico for at least 5 days. Only after the horde came to the attention of President Trump did the Mexican government begin soliciting the illegal aliens to offer them, after the fact, temporary “transit or humanitarian” visas.
Look carefully at the photos here and here. The marchers are not primarily women and children, as many mainstream media stories contend. Rather, there are a good many men, especially young men, in the group. Keep this in mind when you see photos in the mainstream media, which are careful to show mostly women and children in order to play upon your sympathies and make President Trump look like a racist bully. You know their game by now. According to progressives and their lapdogs in the media, it’s racist and even un-Christian to protect this country, something the president is sworn by oath to do!
Although now the organizers claim that the final event was always to be the “symposium,” “workshop,” “conference,” legal aid and resource-gathering meeting, originally it was reported that
Organizers estimate that about two-thirds of people are planning on crossing into the United States undetected or asking for some type of protection like asylum.
So it’s absolutely not true that most of these illegal aliens never intended to go to the U.S. That’s simply obfuscation and spin for the complicit fake news mainstream media to swallow and regurgitate to the masses in their never-ending quest to undermine our country as well as our president. From the Pueblo sin Fronteras plan, as published on Facebook:
If all goes well we will be in Puebla, Mexico from April 5 to 9 to participate in legal preparation and workshops. From there we will hope for the blessing of solidarity from the Mexican people and human rights organizations, who we hope will join our struggle and assist us with the supplies and resources that they have available.
The organizers have already admitted that they need resources to get all these people to the U.S. border, so their planned stop in Puebla was not the “final event,” as later claimed, but was a planned way station at which to gather more resources to continue on “from there.” The “legal preparation” probably involves preparing claims for asylum and lawsuits in the event of arrests or deportation orders.
Make no mistake. This is all of a piece with the “resistance” to President Trump and his policies. Few would be surprised to learn that the Deep State, the Obama shadow government, and globalists like George Soros have a hand in this effort, as well.
One can read between the lines of the march organizers’ demands. Oh, yes! These illegal aliens have demands to make of our government, among them:
We demand of Mexico and the United States:
-That they respect our rights as refugees and our right to dignified work to be able to support our families
-That they open the borders to us because we are as much citizens as the people of the countries where we are and/or travel
-That deportations, which destroy families, come to an end …
-That the US government not end TPS for those who need it
-That the US government stop massive funding for the Mexican government to detain Central American migrants and refugees and to deport them …
They also have an ultimate goal to “abolish borders.” So much for sovereignty.

This link has the most thorough research I’ve found yet about the funders of this intiative and the socialist and communist organizations with whom they’re affiliated.
President Trump has said he will use the military (the National Guard, presumably) to protect the border. Some say the illegal aliens intend to enter California. Whose side will California, the sanctuary state, then be on?
