NBC News Reporter Admits Migrant Caravan Predominantly Men

1730

After a photo of a migrant woman sprinting away from a tear gas cannister with her two young children in tow went viral over the weekend, CNN, MSNBC and the rest of their mainstream media cohort swiftly condemned the Trump Administration for yet another brutal crackdown on harmless migrant families that are only trying to escape persecution and violence by seeking asylum in the US.
MigrantsOf course, their reporting almost universally ignored an attack on border patrol agents in Arizona – the first incident of violence against US law enforcement by a member of the one of the migrant caravans heading toward the southern border from Honduras and Guatemala. They also ignored the fact – highlighted by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen – that the majority of the migrants camping out in Tijuana as they await an opportunity to cross into the US are young men. But that the mainstream media ignored this is hardly surprising: After all, this fact doesn’t fit with the narrative that the caravan is chiefly comprised of desperate single mothers and their children, who are simply trying to escape violence in their home countries.

But the sad reality is, as the Daily Mail reported, that many of the women and children photographed during this weekend’s border skirmish were being used as human shields during clashes with federal agents. Furthermore, DHS believes there are roughly 600 convicted criminals who are traveling with the caravan.

And she said hundreds of convicted criminals including rapists and child abusers are known to be among the ‘predominantly male’ convoy of Central Americans who have set up camp in Tijuana, waiting to cross into California.

‘It appears in some cases that the limited number of women and children in the caravan are being used by the organizers as “human shields” when they confront law enforcement,’ Nielsen said in a statement posted on Facebook.

President Donald Trump claimed Monday evening in Mississippi that some of the adults trying to cross the border illegally aren’t related to the children who accompany them. He called them ‘grabbers.’

Nielsen also increased DHS’s count of known convicts in the ‘organized’ caravan, saying: ‘This is serious.’

‘[A]t this point we have confirmed that there are over 600 convicted criminals traveling with the caravan flow,’ she said. ‘This includes individuals known to law enforcement for assault, battery, drug crimes, burglary, rape, child abuse and more.’

While many reporters immediately sought to discredit that count – after all, numbers released by the Trump administration can’t be trusted, right? – one NBC reported traveled to Tijuana to try and verify it for himself.

And guess what he found?

That’s right. NBC reporter Gadi Schwartz revealed in a tweet on Monday that there are more than three times as many men as there are women traveling with the caravan that’s currently camped out near the US border.

 

According to NBC’s count, the caravan is 65% male:

Men: 3676

Women: 1060

Children: 1002

Total: 5738

But that hasn’t stopped Trump-hating politicians like California Governor-Elect Gavin Newsom from condemning the administration for its barbarity.

 

Though it would seem the men in the caravan are behaving even more barbarically.

  1. Democrats have selective memory. Obama used tear gas over 80 times! The picture of the woman and the kids was STAGED! FAKE. It got what it wanted from the media. But it also shows that the US will defend it Border!

  2. SO sick of news people aiding and abetting invaders!
    What ever happened to law abiding reporters???
    Gone forever in America.
    Wouldn’t it be nice if some rich person started up an honest news service?

  3. NBC even when reporting lies, shades the truth, ditto CNN. It is wrong for our country what has been going on. Schumer and Pelose should for one time do what is best for America not for themselves and their party, sick of both of them. Rhino’s you are no better Undo Daca law and all laws permitting illegals from gaming us, along with Democratic lawyer, Aclu, ( a waste ). Do it now while Republicans still hold the house and the criminals take over. Thousands on the way all should be held in Washington DC and not send them to us like Barry did, that Bum. Michelle’s next Book, “Why I hate America” Keep smiling, no not you Dems you can keep the frown you always have and enjoy

  4. How do we know that the kids in the picture actually is her children? And if she has 5 children, why aren’t all of them with her. FAKE NEWS by fake media, by non-journalists who try to make news not report it honestly. This current crop of non-journalists are better suited for the supermarket tabloids that have great headlines like Green Outer space Aliens Just landed in New York City.
