On Tuesday, the Department of Homeland Security confirmed what we already knew to be true.
Gang members and people with “significant criminal histories” are embedded in the massive migrant caravan of mostly military-aged males marching up to the United States.
DHS spox Tyler Houlton said Tuesday in a tweetstorm:
“The DHS can confirm that there are individuals within the caravan who are gang members or have significant criminal histories,” Tyler Houlton said.
The DHS then confirmed Judicial Watch’s reporting that people from Bangladesh, Congo, South Asia and the Middle East are also traveling with the caravan.
“Citizens of countries outside Central America, including countries in the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, and elsewhere are currently traveling through Mexico toward the U.S.,” Tyler Houlton added.
“Stopping the caravan is not just about national security or preventing crime, it is also about national sovereignty and the rule of law. Those who seek to come to America must do so the right and legal way.”
