MSNBC hosts were doing their best to paint President Trump as a “liar” for saying the majority of illegals in the massive caravan set to invade the US via Tijuana, Mexico are not women and children. In a tweet today, President Trump reminded Americans about how many of the migrants are waving flags from the country they claim to be seeking asylum from. In his tweet, Trump claimed that many of the migrants are “stone cold criminals”. His comments didn’t sit well with the clearly frustrated MSNBC hosts.
Mexico should move the flag waving Migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries. Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!

Unfortunately, the MSNBC hosts ran into a bit of a roadblock when their own reporter embedded with the caravan, pointed out that most of the illegal aliens at the Tijuana, Mexico border with San Diego, CA are men, and that some of them weren’t even talking about asylum.
WFB– MSNBC correspondent Gadi Schwartz took viewers on a walking tour through the “inner sanctum” of the shelter for the caravan, which consists of Central American migrants.
“You’re going to see a lot of families here, a lot of women and children, but the truth is the majority of the people that are part of this caravan … the majority of them are men, so when this becomes a polarized, political issue in the United States, you have people on one side that point and say, ‘There are women and children here,’ and that is true, and then there are others who point and say, ‘These are men that are trying to cross the border,’ and that’s true, too,” Schwartz said.
“From what we’ve seen, the majority are actually men, and some of these men have not articulated that need for asylum,” he continued. “Instead, they have talked about going to the United States for a better life and to find work.”
Schwartz reported seeing roughly 600 men standing in line at a food bank at the outskirts of the migrant encampment.
