    Finally – the $21-million question about the migrant caravan ...
    If 4,000+ people "spontaneously" decide to set out on a 1,500-mile walk from Honduras to the U.S. -- with children in tow -- conveniently timed to reach the border around Election Day, it's obvious there's a political motive.
    That's the answer to the "why" question.
    But a bigger question arises when considering the logistics of feeding 4,000 people ... providing them water ... and bathrooms.
    That has Rush Limbaugh asking the all-important "who" question.
    It's time to follow the money ...

    Scalabrini shelter in Guatemala swamped by Hondurans seeking safety

    By David Agren Catholic News Service

    MEXICO CITY (CNS) -- A Scalabrini migrant shelter in Guatemala City has served 1,700 Hondurans heading north as part of a caravan seeking to reach the U.S. border.

    Carlos Lopez, a shelter official, told Catholic News Service the Scalabrini facility in Guatemala normally serves up to 80 guests at a time, but the number of migrants arriving from Honduras has forced the shelter to offer lodging in a nearby school.


    Resources, he added, are strained and "staff are exhausted,"
    having worked 48 hours nonstop. Rain is also making life miserable for migrants traveling mostly on foot and sometimes forced to sleep outside.


    "We have a soccer field full of people, in the dining room, in every nook and cranny. They're on the bleachers, in the school gym,"
    he said Oct. 18. "The problem now is feeding people and hygiene. ... We're experiencing chaos right now."


    A caravan of Hondurans departed the city of San Pedro Sula Oct. 13, but its ranks swelled as it crossed into Guatemala. Lopez said no one was certain of the caravan's exact size, but he compared it to a "snowball going downhill" and estimated it at more than 5,000 participants.


    "This is a humanitarian crisis. Here there are 75-year-old elderly women and 2-month-old babies," he said.


    The caravan has captured the attention of Trump, who threatened to cut off assistance to Guatemala and Honduras -- $1.1 billion in 2017 and 2018, according to the Washington Office on Latin America -- if the caravan proceeded.


    Guatemala issued a statement saying it would stop the caravan, even though Central American countries allow each other's citizens to cross borders freely.


    Mexico sent two planeloads of federal police officers to its southern border Oct. 15 as the first migrants in the caravan arrived in the area. The country's foreign ministry said in a statement anyone with the proper papers could enter Mexico, while those planning to apply for asylum could do so. Anyone not meeting the entry requirements would be turned back, however.


    In a tweet, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence warned Central American migrants to stay put, saying the road north poses risks and "if (migrants) cannot come to the U.S. legally, they should not come at all."


    The northern triangle of Central America -- Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador -- is one of the most violent regions in the world, though murder rates have declined in recent years. Nicaragua has also experienced an outflow due to political unrest and attacks by police and paramilitaries on the opposition, though many of those migrants head to neighboring Costa Rica.


    "Poverty, the lack of opportunities, violence and extortion due to gangs ... (people) can no longer live with such anxiety and, hence, are taking these actions," Lopez said.


    In 2017, nearly 299,000 Central Americans were considered refugees or applied for asylum,
    according to the Jesuit Network with Migrants -- Central America and North America.


    "The daily crisis of subsistence ... derived from the imposition of authoritarian political systems and economic models, which exclude, force people to flee their countries to have a dignified life and sometimes save their lives," the network said in a statement Oct. 17.

    Trump told Mexico, Solve my immigration and asylum problem and I'll give you $20 Million.
    We'll say the money is to deport illegal aliens.


    Someone started giving money to Hondurans to caravan to the U.S.

    Trump ordered Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico to stop them.

    Honduras didn't stop them.



    Guatemala didn't stop them.


    Mexico asked the U.N. for help.


    The U.N. agreed to handle immigration and asylum for the U.S.


    Trump's immigration and asylum problem is now a U.N. problem.


    Mexico will get $20 million.


    Everyone is happy.

    ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MONEY.

    . . . Gaetz is wrong about several things in his description of the video he posted.


    First, it was not shot in Honduras, which he later acknowledged. Google Maps and Facebook photos place the storefront seen in the video, an auto parts shop, in Chiquimula, Guatemala. As Kirk Semple of The New York Times reported, the migrant caravan was formed last week in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and has made its way north through Guatemala.
    Second, Gaetz’s speculation the migrants were being offered cash to join the caravan by Soros is unfounded. Open Society Foundations, Soros’ philanthropic organization, has denied any involvement.
    Luis Assardo, a Guatemalan journalist, said in an email he spoke to residents of Chiquimula and was told that some local merchants had given the migrants money while others had offered food, clothing or other help.
    The video appears to show each migrant receiving a single bill, so the largest amount they could have received was 200 quetzales, equal to about $26. Migrants in the caravan told The New York Times that the Guatemalans generally handed out one or two quetzals, or about 13 to 26 cents — undercutting Trump’s claim of “a lot of money” exchanging hands.
    The migrants said they were not paid to join the caravan.
    In an interview, Gaetz said he now suspects that the men handing out money were cartel members sowing goodwill to subvert the government. He is also concerned that U.S. nonprofit organizations were involved in organizing the caravan, but concedes that “they may not be.” He emphasized that he was merely asking questions — and is “still asking.”
    The notion that refugees will leave their homes solely for a little cash is “crazy,” said Alex Mensing, a project coordinator with Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a transnational group that organized the migrant caravan that captured Trump’s attention in spring. (The group did not coordinate the caravan that is now traveling north, but has been organizing similar journeys for years.)
    “You don’t have to pay people to try save their own lives,” Mensing said. “They are fleeing violence, death threats or economic violence.”

    So they're independently wealthy and can take off on a 30 day walking/hostel vacation at their own expense. Interesting ....

    From the videos that I have seen, they don't look as though all that walking has caused any of them to lose a lot of weight...and the majority of them are men. Just sayin..
